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
The book sets the background you need for the two main characters, Grayson and Emma. Grayson and Emma have danced around their feelings for one another for a while. When they finally reveal their feelings for one another, Emma thinks her dreams are going to come true. Little does she know Gray has a secret he will never tell her. On the night that they take things to the next level, Grayson leaves without a goodbye. The epilogue is fast forwarded to 3 years later where Emma receives devastating news about Grayson. It's also revealed that Emma has a secret of her own.
This hot read is a great start to what promises to be an amazing series. The love story and the aftermath really pull the reader in. A definite 1-click for anyone who loves the Titan series (this is sort of a prequel) and anyone who loves an amazing love story.
