Beyond What Is Given (Fighting Glory #3) By Rebecca Yarros - Blog Tour

I'm so super excited to have been accepted to do the Beyond What Is Given blog tour! *flails* Earlier on this year I binge read the first 2 books of Rebecca Yarros' Flight & Glory series, I couldn't put them down even if my life depended on it. So without further a do here is my review of the third book in the Flight & Glory series: Beyond What Is Given.


Title: Beyond What Is Given
Series: Flight & Glory #3
Author: Rebecca Yarros
Genre: New adult, romance
Published: 28 September 2015
Format: ebook
Rating: 5/5 Stars

Lt. Grayson Masters is focused on graduating the Apache helicopter course, and the last thing he needs is his gorgeous new roommate Samantha Fitzgerald distracting him. While her smart mouth and free spirit are irresistibly irritating, he can’t deny their off-the-charts chemistry, no matter how hard he tries.

Having just been expelled from college, Sam has no business digging for Grayson’s secrets while she’s hiding her own, but that doesn’t stop her from trying to tear down his walls. Each barrier she busts through drops one of her own, though, and she’s not prepared for the truth: another woman laid claim to Grayson’s heart long ago.

Falling in love is something neither Grayson nor Sam can afford, and when that line is crossed and secrets are exposed, they’ll learn that sometimes it’s the answered prayers that will put you through hell.


I need a Grayson Masters in my life. I am so happy that I discovered this series because it has been so amazing to read, it's fun and plays with your emotions ;)..which is always a good thing. *laughs manically*

I think that Sam is probably my favorite heroine out of all the characters in this series. I feel like I've just commited a crime for saying that because I love all of the heroines in this series! But what can I say badass heroines are awesome.  One of my favorite things about her is that she's so strong. Which I guess can be a good and a bad thing, she keeps everything inside and tends to not tell anyone about her problems and puts on a brave front, acts like all tough but in the inside she's actually really just craving some love. 

It's safe to say that Grayson's my favorite as well, which means that this book is my favorite out of all of them. But there's a reason, HE IS FREAKING AWESOME.  he's the strong and silent type, what can I say they're my kryptonite.  

In this book there is a love triangle but not the usual type of one girl two boys, no it's the complete opposite - two girls one boy - personally my favorite kind. Maybe it's because the two-boys-one-girl one is so common but I mostly find it's because guys in books are so straight forward and no BS-ing people, they don't string them along trying to find out which one they love and yada yada yada. I don't even know if you can call it a love triangle? Because *spoiler* Grace is in a coma *end of spoiler*

My heart broke for him though like it was a physical ache and I just wanted to curl up in a ball and sob like a crazy person. Everyone just constantly made him feel guilty and  stupid, always pressuring him to do something that he wasn't. And I just can't even right now. HSJSHSVSHSHSHHSHSP 

So Grayson is awesome and hot and that's a reason in itself to read this book ;) 

Can I just say that Grayson's  sister made me want to punch a wall and pull all of my hair out?! She was just so vindictive but at the same time she had her reasons *Spoiler* because she was feeling so guilty about her role in Grace's accident *end of spoiler* but also the way she constantly put her brother down made me want to knock that bitch out, but I have a feeling that, that isn't acceptable in society ;) 

But ALSO just his family in general made me so freaking mad they constantly wanted him to be something he wasn't, they refused to support his dreams and I just think that it's so sad that they couldn't witness all his amazing accomplishments. *spoiler* when his dad tried to sabotage his career !? Like WHO THE HELL DOES that?! *end of spoiler*

Overall this book had such an amazing story in it and contained so many feels that you just feel like you're going to burst from happiness and yes, at times makes you want to punch the wall and cry like a mad man but that's what all good books make you do right? So go read this book and get ready for the emotional roller coaster that is Beyond What Is Given.


Rebecca Yarros is a hopeless romantic and lover of all things chocolate, coffee, and Paleo. In addition to being a mom, military wife, and blogger, she can never choose between Young Adult and New Adult fiction, so she writes both. She's a graduate of Troy University, where she studied European history and English, but still holds out hope for an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Her blog, The Only Girl Among Boys, has been voted the Top Military Mom Blog the last two years, and celebrates the complex issues surrounding the military life she adores.

When she's not writing, she's tying on hockey skates for her kids, or sneaking in some guitar time. She is madly in love with her army-aviator husband of eleven years, and they're currently stationed in Upstate NY with their gaggle of rambunctious kiddos and snoring English Bulldog, but she would always rather be home in Colorado.
