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...

Rebecca Yarros sucked me in with Full Measures and she didn’t disapoint with Eyes Turned Skyward! Her books are fantastic. She writes the most swoon worthy men. I’m a sucker for a hockey player. I’m also a sucker for a military man. Put those 2 together in one Hero and I’m a puddle on the floor!

I Loved Paisley’s journey throughout this story. She was fighting a losing battle with her family and friends. They sheltered her to protect her, but it was suffocating her! Through this story and building her relationship with Jagger, she became strong and found her voice. I loved her growth as a character.

Jagger… he is sexy, smart, loving, even though he doesn’t think he is, strong and determined! He says the most romantic things. I will always love Josh Walker, but now my heart is torn, because it’s hard to pick between the 2!

This was a beautiful epic love story, about love, loss, fight, health, addiction, family and friends. I can not wait to read Grayson’s story. I have a really good feeling about him!!!

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.

When she’s not writing, she’s tying hockey skates for her four sons, sneaking in some guitar time, or watching brat-pack movies with her two daughters. She lives in Colorado with the hottest Apache pilot ever, their rambunctious gaggle of kids, an English bulldog who is more stubborn than sweet, and a bunny named General Fluffy Pants who torments the aforementioned bulldog. They recently adopted their youngest daughter from the foster system, and Rebecca is passionate about helping others do the same.
