Why I love books where the hero, heroine, or both start with an epic emotional mountain to climb, I will never know, but here I am, loving them all the same. And Rebecca Yarros? Well, she does epic emotional mountains to perfection.
The Reality of Everything is the fifth book in her Flight & Glory series. I have never read the first four in the series, and there wasn’t a need to enjoy this one. Though now I am going to back and read the others because I am curious about how they got to their HEA’s.
What I loved:
Pretty much everything. The heroine has some serious shit going on in her life. I’m glad the author doesn’t gloss over the emotional issues that Morgan is dealing with either. She puts all the ugly out there, from a breakdown of tears to complete meltdown on a truck door. It makes Morgan so much more relatable.
Jackson, the hero and his daughter Fin, all the gushy, mushy single Dad feels that I absolutely crave. His interactions and reactions with Morgan also felt real and not forced. Their chemistry starts smoldering and then gets hot. The two made sense.
What I didn’t like:
I enjoyed the entire book. It didn’t feel lacking, I never got bored, and I thoroughly enjoyed the characters. Rebecca Yarros books have yet to steer me wrong.
If you like angsty, emotional books, then this is the one for you. The Reality of Everything is a solid five star read!
