Beyond What is Given (Flight & Glory #3) by Rebecca Yarros
Looks like I’m on a Rebecca Yarros streak right now…
…and this book, like the others I have read by this author, didn’t disappoint !! The angst killed me a little, but what can I say…I love torturing myself a bit 😉
Samantha has left her life in Colorado, because of a major fuck-up and now she is trying to make a fresh start in Alabama.
Her friends Josh and Jagger (book 1 /2) offered her a place to live, with them and another guy. She is also trying her hardest to get into another college, which is proving to be a bitch.
But Sam is nothing if not determined and she isn’t ready to give up.
Grayson is a bit of loner.
He is friends with his roommates Josh and Jagger but their friendship doesn’t go very deep because Grayson doesn’t give away much of himself. He puts all his time into his studying because he really wants to graduate top of his flight class. He comes off as a bit cold. But Grayson is carrying some heavy secrets himself and maybe the right person will be able to tone his broody demeanor.
When Grayson and Sam meet, he is struck speechless, because he was expecting Sam to be a guy.He also wasn’t expecting the shimmer of lust going through his body, while looking at her. He knows he shouldn’t go there, he knows the best thing would be to ignore his feelings.
But neither of them can ignore the sparks that fly between them for long…
One by one, secrets get revealed and while Grayson and Sam fall deeper and deeper for each other….something unimaginable happens….My heart freaking broke !!
Sam was such a great heroine and yes she may have been fooled a bit in her past…
…but as far as I was concerned, she really didn’t do anything wrong. She was so sweet and caring and funny and I felt like shit, right along with her.
This book also had one of, the most hated characters in it, I think.
Usually, the sisters are the good ones and in this case, there sure were some of them, but Grayson’s sister Parker wasn’t one of them. I wanted to smash her face in so bad !!
Grayson’s father was also a major asshole !!! Thankfully Grayson had a mind of his own, and he isn’t afraid of fighting for what he wants 🙂
“This is not a temporary thing between us. There is no deadline. I. Am. Always. Yours. ….So go ahead and fall. I’ve gotten really good at catching you”.
This book put me through the wringer, but I loved every single second of it !! I can’t wait to read more by this author. I am definitely on a winning streak here !!
