Review ~ Only For Him @CristinHarber

only

Title: Only For Him

Series: Only #1

Author: Cristin Harber

Publication Date: Feb. 24, 2015

Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance

Grayson Ford and Emma Kinglsey—close since they were kids, opposites in every way. He’s the stuff high school crushes are made of, Mister Popular, and captain of every team. She’s artsy, cute, and not in his league, though fully aware of Summerland’s “I Dream of Dating Grayson Ford” support group.

I can’t say no. The girl’s had my heart since before I knew it went missing.

He hides a life of hell. His father hates him, his mother’s gone. Emma is his only savior, yet she doesn’t know her power over him. She’s the only girl he wants, the only one he could ever tell—though he won’t.

I’m stronger, bigger, more of a man than he’ll ever be, but because I ruined his life, I’ve taken his crap, his attacks, the vulgar nature of his existence.

Until she discovers Gray’s embarrassment, his humiliation. Emma fights for him, for a chance. Theirs is a Cinderella story that she believes impossible. But as the layers peel back, it’s just a guy who needs a girl in order to keep breathing.

My mind is already doodling Mrs. Grayson Ford in imaginary notebooks. He has no clue where my head is at… But, given that I didn’t see what just happened coming, maybe I have no clue where his head is at either.

* ONLY FOR HIM is the first book in the Only series, all of which will release in Spring 2015.

My ****4 Star**** Review

Nothing I have ever experienced has anything on this moment, and Gray’s lips haven’t even touched mine.

That gives you just a little taste of the awesomeness that is packed into this short and sweet novella. I’ve found that few authors can pack a serious punch in a novella, but Cristin pulls it off nicely, leaving you wanting more. A LOT MORE! This is one of those stories where you’ll zip through the pages on an emotional overload. The characters are easy to connect with, and you’ll feel what they feel.

She ends this on one heck of cliffhanger, too. The good thing is that book 2 has already been released, and the whole series will be released before the end of spring! Not too much waiting.

I recommend this to all contemporary romance lovers that don’t mind cliffhangers. If the cliffhanger bothers you, then just wait on the full series to be released!!

Happy Reading,

Alison

This was my first Cristin Harber book. I give it 4 stars. I can’t wait for the release of the next book in the series. I’ll be posting this review on the 23rd.

I just started this book yesterday, and I’m really enjoying it. I love that every time I guess what will happen next, I’m wrong. Book 2 in this series is set to be released Mar. 16th.

reluctant

I just finished this book yesterday. I give it 3.5 stars. I love the overall idea of the book, but there are bits here and there that are confusing and/or contradictory. It was good enough that I’ll read the next book, though.

So, I picked up book 2, also. Book 1 was released Sept. 2013, while book 2 was just released this month. I’m hoping this book doesn’t end with another cliffie that I will have to wait over a year for!

I didn’t like this one as much as I had hoped, but it didn’t suck. I give it 4 stars. I expect to post my review on the 25th.

This is a really short read, but it grabbed me anyways. So glad I don’t have to wait long for the rest of the books!!
