{REVIEW} Only For Her by Cristin Harber

Book 2 in the "Only" series by Cristin Harber
Title: Only For Her
Author: Cristin Harber
Genre: New Adult, Romance
Series: Only #2
Publication: March 17th, 2015
Rating: ★★★★☆

First loves never die but Grayson Ford comes close. 

Bleeding out in a war zone, he barters with God. Bring him back alive, and he'll make it right with his girl.

Emma is not his girl anymore. Time has skipped by and life's been hard. She strips to pay the bills, waitresses to fill the hours between classes and her third job. All while working to be the best mama she can be to the little girl who will never know her daddy. Even though Grayson abandoned her, she mourned his death. Until he calls, and everything she knew was wrong.

He's back with one objective--Emma Kingsley--and she never sees it coming.

The second installment of the Only series by Cristin Harber continues where we left of in Only For Him - Grayson is supposedly dead and Emma desperately tries to move on after everything that had happened. It's just not that easy. It never is.

I have to say that I enjoyed this a lot more than the first book! I remember that I liked the first one because of their cute relationship but that the ending really pissed me off ... but here? Everything makes sense and it's only half as bad as I imagined it, really.

In 3 years a lot can change and Emma has to experience that firsthand. I admired her for her strength and her will to do what is necessary and I think she did a pretty good job. She's still (well, kind of) the sweet, innocent and loving girl we met in the first installment but also different ... more mature and wiser. And Grayson? Well, he had a hard time too and he also changed a lot - to the better? I don't know yet. Everything that happened definitely affected him and I actually felt all his pain, sorrow and guilt. The author did a pretty good job at describing all of this. really I loved the author's ideas in this book and can't wait to find out how everything will turn out for the characters!

Since this is not really a book - more like a serial or novella - I knew it would be short and therefore a quick and easy read. I finished this within a day, so it's definitely something to read in between. I'm pretty excited for the next installment now because this one also ended with a cliffhanger ... at least not a terribly cruel one but I'm very, very curious! :)
