such a hard time with this book, weeks later I originally wasn t going to give this a star rating, or post my review on any retail sites, but that honestly goes against everything I m always preaching about when it comes to reviews I think it s unfair to other readers if all they see is glowing praise And yes, everyone will relate and react to a book in different ways, but that s exactly why we shouldn t be afraid to post our thoughts, even if they are the complete opposite of everyone else Just because someone adored a story doesn t negate the fact that I, or other readers, will have the complete opposite reaction While I will not be posting what s under my spoiler tag on any of the other sites, I will be sharing some of my thoughts and feelings, and that this book was a journey I wish I had never taken.Nope, nope, nope I m about to go drink a big bottle of wine to try and block this book from my memory view spoiler The only other time I felt anywhere near as devastated after reading a book as I do right now was when I finished Written in the Scars by Adrianna Locke I can handle heartbreak Heck, Jewel E Ann and Emma Scott are 2 of my favorite authors What I can t handle is a death that does nothing for the story And Colt s death, in my opinion, did nothing but ruin what otherwise could have become a favorite book I honestly wish I had read the 1 review that contained spoilers, before I had started reading, it would have saved me unbelievable heartbreak I m not sure devastated is even a strong enough word for what I m feeling I seriously wish there was a way for me to go back in time, I never would have requested to read and review I don t know how anyone can think this is a beautiful book after reading that last 10% Colt s death was gratuitous and undeserving and I ll NEVER understand why the author felt it necessary It did NOTHING for the story except ruin it hide spoiler No Rating SPOILERS DON T READ IF YOU DON T WANT TO KNOW Sorry I can t do it DNF at 9% That s right 9% Why you ask at only 9% would I quit on a book Well let me tell you I signed up for a heart melting and maybe a little breaking book about two army friends and one dying and the other taking care of the dead one s sister I knew going into this the brother would die But 7% into it and I could already see where this book was going and I didn t like it Still I held out hope At 9% when the drs tell Ella that her 5 year old daughter has a very aggressive and advanced cancer, I stopped reading and headed to goodreads for some spoilers Because I knew, I just KNEW that a child was gonna die Sure enough Three spoiler reviews later and I knew I could not finish this book NOPE I can read dark, dark books I can handle rape, torture, murder, death, sadness you name it but I can t do children s deaths I just can t it s a hard red line for me I don t want to read a book that makes me depressed I m a mom of a child who has lots of health issues I remember sitting in the hospital waiting as my son at one years old, got MRIs CAT scans to see if a brain tumor was causing his seizures and it was one of the worst time of my life Thank the Lord he didn t have a tumor, but he still has PVL, epilepsy, and mild CP I don t want to be reminded of that time in my life when I sat around wondering what was wrong with my baby Doing the what ifs I don t want to live that kind of sadness Also I want to just add a small note to all authors I understand that no one wants to give away spoilers in their books, and I am not a reader that thinks everything should have a trigger warning but when it comes to child death I think there should be a small warning on the synopsis I don t know how it can be worded so that it doesn t give away major plot lines, but as a reader I felt blindsided by this book I have to say that if I had read the whole book I would have been mad If I had known there was a child s death in this book I would never had requested it from netgalley I hate DNFing books, but I just can t with this subject The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros is as much a heartbreaking as it is heartwarming contemporary romance For anyone not familiar what the title, The Last Letter, is referring to the book is about a soldier who was killed in duty leaving a letter to be read after his death.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 and Beckett as pen pals When Ryan was killed in active duty he left his last letter to his best friend asking him to take care of Ella.Ella is a single mother to twins, a boy and a girl that she lives her life for and would do anything to protect Having been left alone and pregnant and her only family left in her brother that joined the military Ella has had to fight to get where she is in life Now Ella is also fighting for her daughter s life when she s diagnosed with cancer.The story in this one actually begins with briefly showing Beckett and Ryan serving and the letters to Ella beginning but then heads to Beckett s arrival in Telluride in the present time As the chapters begin happening in the present readers still get to read the letters written in the past between the chapters to get the backstory of how Beckett, Ryan and Ella all came to know one another.The title alone hints of this being an emotional story but even with that hint I wasn t prepared for just how emotional it really was Needless to say a box of tissues needs to be on hand while reading this book and each time you think the roller coaster of emotions is going to end it heads back up the hill to come crashing down yet again I was hooked on every single page of this one and would highly recommend buckling up for the emotional ride.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.For reviews please visit I finished this book nearly 2 weeks ago Fourteen days and my heart is still shattered, yet so full of love for this story It is so hard to put into words what this book is for me And the love that I have for this author I have followed Mrs Yarros for years, read her books, loved them, and followed her blog on her life adventures Let me say this, if you haven t read this author, you are truly missing out There is so much heart in her stories, she lays her heart out in her words And this book, by far my favorite so far I fell in love with words just like Beckett and Ella did I fell for these characters, all of them They all play and hold such an important part to the story Beckett I love your commitment, i adore your love and passion You stand true with your words, and do what you need to do to make up for your one mistake I envy your patience and absolutely love your heart Now Ella, I can say I ve never loved the strength of a character as much as I do yours You have so much strength, your heart is huge, it s battered, broken, shattered, yet it s so strong So very strong that you still love with a light that is breathless Keep finding your happy Ella In this book my heart was always on Maisie Colt Innocent, sweet, so lovable, and so deserving of a full life and loads of love.It s hard to write a good review of this book without giving anything away So let me end this little review with saying this, I am a mom to three beautiful children I ve learned from personal journeys that life is indeed short, to cherish every moment, and to never leave my children mad Live for today and dream of tomorrow.Well done, Mrs Yarros you did so damn well, I m in complete hangover mode Hands down a book I recommend to all of you that love a good romance Some angst, lots of love, and yes loads of sobbing, but that once in a lifetime love that carries you. 4.5 starsWear waterproof mascara while reading this book Seriously, waterproof mascara and tissues If you need a good cry, read this book Anyone remember seeing Tammy Taye Bakker cry with mascara running down her face on TV That was pretty much me while reading this book Cry a rama occurred at my house today So yeah, I bawled I also really enjoyed this book that ripped my heart out Plus, this was a romance book folks Geeze Louise is all I can say This one had heart and soul The long and short of it is that Ryan and Chaos Beckett are best friends serving in the military Ryan decided to have Beckett write to his sister Ella and vice versa as Beckett did not have any family and received no letters So, a pen pal relationship began Beckett is used to being alone but loves receiving the letters as he learns that being connected to another person is not a bad thing That it is possible to connect with someone he has never met.Ella is a single mother to twins who is devastated when her daughter is diagnosed with Cancer She is trying to hold it all together, take care of her children, fight with insurance, run a business and write to Chaos Beckett She is used to doing everything on her own, but maybe this time, she might need someone to hold her up and lessen her burden.WOWZA Is all I can say This book is told in the present and each chapter also has a letter either written to Chaos from Ella or to Ella from Chaos When Beckett shows up at her door, the reader knows he is Chaos, but Ella does not As I stated this is a romance, but it is also so much.I inhaled this book and I am so glad I did not mull over too many reviews before reading this The reviews are mixed, and I get it This is an emotional book which leaves the reader wondering, just how much can one person take The main characters in this book are extremely like able and I rooted for every single one Which is what pulls on the heartstrings during this book Their actions and reactions felt real and believable Ella and Beckett are both good people, the kids are adorable and Havoc, the retired Military dog could warm anyone s heart Yarros knows how to write characters that will steal the readers heart, right before she rips it out, then places it back in your chest The writing was also wonderful and pulled me into this story and deposited me in Telluride next to the lake So, I mentioned the crying, but it s not all sad There are happy moments and fun moments Moments I wanted to cheer with the characters and moments I was happy that good things were finally happening But this book is about the good times and the love that can come out of heartache It is about loss, family, love, falling in love, responsibility, grief, heartache and hope The Author tackles may heavy subjects in this book with grace This is a gritty, soft, warm, emotional, devastating, sad, hopeful, heartbreaking, sweet and riveting book I could not put this book down Loved this book I have a feeling I will be thinking about this book for some time Romance women s fiction cry festcall it what you want I thought it was fantastic and boy did it pull at my heartstrings Thank you to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own. The tragedy in this story is overkill I expected it to be emotional and even upsetting Her brother, a special ops soldier, had just died during his assignment, she grew up without her parents they d died when she was a toddler, her grandmother has passed away only a short time ago Then another strike she learned that her daughter had cancer This all in itself is a lot to deal with for a single mom And I would have been fine with Ella dealing with her lot But in the last ten percent she had to deal with another loss, one that totally blindsided the reader it came completely out of no where and added nothing to the story or the character growth And that made me so freaking mad, I can t even This last tragedy was added only for tragedy s sake, for it to become a sobfest and I really think it was a cheap shot only for the benefit to make money.I also didn t think it was realistic I know nothing in life is guaranteed but this really went overboard with tragic themes Did Rebecca Yarros have a list she could check off the tragedies I know there will be people who will enjoy The Last Letter but I wasn t one of them.This book should come with a trigger warning There are mothers out there who have to deal with the loss of a child or whose children are battling cancer They shouldn t go into this book without knowing what to expect.
