Author:  Genna Rulon
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date:  September 24, 2013
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.



Synopsis

 “In its purest form love is self-sacrificing, eternal, selfless, enduring, truthful, forgiving and indulgent. It also feels an awful lot like a kick to the stomach when you try to fight it!
All Everleigh Carsen wanted to do was complete her final semester at Hensley University and begin the life she carefully planned.
When a wave of violent crime seizes campus, Everleigh is persuaded to attend a school sponsored self-defense seminar by her best friend, where she meets volunteer instructor, Hunter Charles. After Everleigh’s biting sarcasm induces Hunter to eject her from class, a tempestuous relationship is born.
Everleigh is determined to forget the striking man, but fate–that fickle shrew–continuously intervenes. Unable to escape him, she declares Hunter an enemy combatant. The only complication… Hunter is resolutely pursuing vindication…by any means necessary. Verbal warfare ensues, and despite Everleigh’s ingenious efforts, in Hunter, she has finally found her equal.
Only For You is a compelling tale of friendship, desire, and redemption--brimming with intelligent characters, witty dialogue, unexpected twists, profound sorrow, unfettered hope, and love’s unassailable perseverance.
Note:  Although this is series, each novel can be read as a stand alone.

Laura's Review:

I LOVED this book! Easily one of my top ten of the year. It reminded me of a slightly more mature, slightly less angst-y Beautiful Disaster with the quick wit and fast paced dialogue of a Gilmore Girls episode. The love-hate relationship between Everleigh and Hunter had sparks flying off the page right from the start. Then their not-so-platonic friendship filled the book with so much tension, I think I could feel it burning up my nook. I couldn't get enough and stayed up for hours reading. The campus serial killer plot was a little on the predictable side, but had enough twists thrown in to keep it very interesting. As soon as I finished reading this one, I picked it up and re-read all my favorite passages again...twice. Cannot wait for Ev's best friend's story next!

Only For You: 5/5 stars

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
