The Last Letter
If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have.
I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride.
My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she h ...more

Beckett and Ryan were best friends serving together in the military with both men not having much in the way of family. Ryan did have his sister back home though and seeing Beckett with no one to communicate with he set up Ella ...more
“Sometimes bad things happen. And there’s no blame to be placed. You can’t reason with the universe, no matter how sound your logic is. And we can either breathe through the pain or we can let it shape us.“
The kids were fantastic, Ella was an incredibly courageous mom, Beckett was just perfect (no way such devotion and dedication exist else where can I meet such fine male specimen?), Havoc was my doggy superstar and my box of tissues i ...more
There are books that you read, and you completely forget them once you come to the end. And then there are books like this one. Books that embed themselves deep within you. Books that stir up all of your emotions and you just know that reading this book is going to change your life. The Last Letter is that kind of book. It's the kind of book that just calls out to your soul and demands to be read. It's the kind of book that you think you're prepared for, but you couldn't be mor ...more
The Last Letter broke my heart as much as it made me fall for all the beautiful things about it. Or maybe it just broke me a little bit more than what I can really take. I realize now that my mind is still scattered and all over the place. How could it not tho, when I had to pull myself together from that unexpected sobfest that was the last 15% of the book.
The Last Letter is stunning in all of its details and elements. Yarros’ writing is p ...more
The Last Letter wasn’t a book; it was an experience. It was an emotional rollercoaster, that as a mom, will rival no other book. This book captured me from the beginning, stole my breath, ripped a chunk of my heart out, and left a deep and heavy ache in my chest. This author has always had an ability to put words together and create masterpieces, with her attention to detail being unmatched. This book especially has the most tragic but majestic formation of words even though ...more
Like, panic reaction. Like, slam the book shut, mark it as DNF, send a note to the publisher apologetically explaining all the reasons my heart couldn't handle this story right now - emotional reaction. It hit me hard, y'all - from nearly the very beginning of the book and I was afraid to keep going.
Then I stepped away and took a breath.
Lots of breaths.
And a little ...more
OMG, this book! I am so conflicted after this SUPER emotional read which is part romance/part women’s fiction. It’s so engaging, a beautiful and sweet character-driven story, with well-written drama and a gorgeous love story, but it’s also devastatingly tragic and confronting which (IMHO) went a bit too far. I loved it so much… until I didn’t. And I’m still dealing with my broken heart and coming to terms with all that this book made me feel so please bear wi ...more
I'm struggling to find the right words to express how much The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros touched me.
I cried a lot of tears, I swooned, I laughed, I got angry and wanted to scream why a few times and I fell in love hard for all the characters and now I'm crying writing this review.
I loved Beckett/Chaos, Ella and her beautiful, funny, smart children Maisie & Colt. Those kids truly owned my heart. They shared that special connection twins often share and damn did they brin ...more

So…I have found another favorite new-to-me author. Rebecca Yarros has me wanting to go back and read her backlist like now because The Last Letter was so, so good. I can’t even begin to do it justice with this review, so I am going to bullet point my likes and dislikes.
What I liked:
*The letters. They start out each chapter and are perfectly tailored to the story and how it evolves.
*The writing. I ...more
First let me say that I would probably love any story with a military hero, a single parent and a dog. For me this is like the trope trifecta. (This is my review. Dogs are tropes. Deal with it. Lol) So when I started this story I wa ...more
I don't even know where to start, this book leaves me speechless. There are so many things running through my head, that it's so hard to gather all my thoughts. I have so many emotions coursing through my body, that it makes it hard to pin point which one is overwhelming me so much right now, because as I write this, Rebecca Yarros has left a mark on my soul like no other author has done before. Th ...more
Je lis pour me détendre, et je lis de la Romance en particulier pour sa promesse d’une fin heureuse. Ce livre ne tient pas ses promesses en la matière. Je n’ai pas accroché à l’histoire du couple car la seule chose sur laquelle je pouvais focaliser c’était savoir si la petite fille allait s’en sortir. Et quand enfin tout semble s’arranger l’auteur nous achève avec une mort gratuite. Je ne recommande pas ce livre.

The Pros: The writing is good. The story is interesting, and the pacing is done just right. At least for me. I want the two leads to fall in love and the author does a good job building their relationship, the big reveal, the conflict, and then the final HEA in regards to the couple.
The Cons: There is so much heartache in this story, it caught me off guard. I'm used to reading about difficult situations in romance, but it felt like this book had one too ...more
The Last Letter is an emotional rollercoaster. It's beautiful too and heartbreaking. This story broke me into so many pieces that I won't ever be the same again but I don't regret this experience at all even though it brought me to tears. I know that this journey that these characters went on and the characters themselves will live within me forever. I highly recommend this to those who love emotion heavy stories with a side of my fave trope, best friend's younger sister. Be warne ...more
“Being hugged?” My voice was sandpaper-rough.
“Being held together.”
THE LAST LETTER was one of those stories I couldn’t wait to get back to and one I hated being away from. It stole what ever free time I had. THE LAST LETTER was absolutely amazing, 100% heart wrenching, and had me finishing it with probably the biggest ugly cry a book has brought me to in years.
I won’t say this book ends with a happily ever after, but it does end with an ending that you w ...more
The writing is outstanding. The storyline is, simply put, heartbreaking. Should you attempt to read this? YES. Will you find a flaw? Nope. From page one I was entranced. Do I love the ending? No! I wish things were written differently. Yet, that is what makes this book so special. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s devastating. It’s life.
Rebecca took such beautiful care with the main subject. She allowed me...a regular reader...to live and breathe the strength and determin ...more
Be prepared. I mean with the blurb and cover you have a feeling but you don’t really ever know until you read the story.
I cried! My heart hurt. I felt love. I cried!
There so much feeing in this story. So much love and loss.
You know it’s a good book when you’re mad at the author for writing the story. Im so mad right now and crying ugly tears. It’s just not fair. I’m asking the questions of why.
This is the first bo ...more
