Blog Tour: Only for Him (Only #1) by Cristin Harber - Review & Giveaway
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 and 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. Only series, Volume One. All novellas will release Spring 2015.
Only for Him is a super quick, hot read. If you follow me you know I usually don't like novellas. Something about the short story most authors cannot pull off. This one was actually pretty good. Do I wish it were longer? Yes, because I was enjoying it so much! It also end in kind of a cliffhanger type situation where you just get something dropped on you and it is like wait what? Wait! I need to know more! So I will have to wait for the second part, Only for Her, to come out.
Only for Him is the story of Greyson and Emma. They have been friends forever and both secretly want more but don't know it. Greyson doesn't have the best life, and he has some secrets in his past that he tries to keep hidden from everyone. Emma is super sweet and is just smitten with Greyson, but resigned to being just his best friend.
The story is just told through little clips from different years in high school. You see how much Emma cares for him and you get just a few glimpses into Greyson's head. You don't get a lot, but it works. The little glimpse of their lives work in a way that surprised me. Would I have read more? Of course! I really enjoyed them and their story, but it was enough the way it was. Also it was pretty hot once things got going. Phew Greyson and Emma were amazing together. Really a great read even if it is a novella. I cannot wait for the next chapter of the story.
