Eyes Turned Skyward by Rebecca Yarros

Life's too short to play it safe...

Since her sister's death, twenty-year-old Paisley Donovan, who shares her sister’s heart condition, is treated like delicate glass by her parents. But nothing will stop her from completing her Bucket List—even if it kills her. And it almost does, until Jagger Bateman pulls her from the ocean and breathes more than air into her lungs—he sets her soul on fire.

Jagger is enrolled in the country's toughest flight school. He's wickedly hot, reckless, and perfect for a girl looking to live life to the fullest. Except that Paisley is the commanding general's daughter, and her boyfriend is Jagger's biggest rival. Now Paisley must decide just how much to risk for a guy who makes her heart pound a little too hard.

They're flying through dangerous territory—and one wrong move could make them crash and burn...

Eyes Turned Skyward is available for purchase:

Another amazing novel by Rebecca Yarros. I can't say that I enjoyed Eyes Turned Skyward more than I enjoyed Full Measures. It was definitely on the same level as in a different way. I loved it. There's a great development in the characters--it was very nice to see Jagger get his own book. Nothing was laid out completely right from the start but there was just enough to keep you going and with every chapter there was a bit more to leave you wanting more (but enough not to piss you off). The story was unique and had enough substance to keep me truly entertained. There was also enough of the hot and steamy and was done in such a way that it didn't take away from the story and make it seem trashy. If it makes sense, it was a story first with a tasteful amount of sex vs a book full of sex scenes with a smatter of a story.

Jagger was the perfect guy, seriously, and only got better as the book went on. I don't think there was much that turned me off from him. His self-doubt was really depressing but I think he had a good head on his shoulders despite how they tried to pass him off. The secrets made him more enticing (umm, kind like how I realllllly want a story about Grayson now, btw) and attractive.

I'm not quite sure if I was supposed feel sorry for Paisley or not. I felt like I was supposed to but at the same time, I was more annoyed with how she was dealing with her hand in life. Though a bit conflicted with her character, I couldn't hate her--it seemed mean to hate someone like her lol.

All in all, absolutely loved Eyes Turned Skyward. Definitely a must read and definitely one filed under all-time-favourites!!
