Publisher's Summary

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.

"All I want is Emma. I need her, and I fight for her memory. A story. A smile. Anything. But it's all blank."

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. That's until he calls, and she discovers that everything she knew was wrong.

"It's him. The him that ruined my life. That made my life. That confused my mind to the point that I can't figure out if I've been destroyed or set free. The him that is dead."

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

A must read to continue this fantastic series!

Only For Her by Cristin Harber is the second book in her Only series. It continues the story where Only For Him left off, so you must read this in order. Once again Cristen Harber has captured my heart and does not let go.

When Grayson Ford felt he had one chance of escaping the hell he called his life, he knew he must take it. Even if it meant loosing the one thing he loved the most.

Ever since that one unforgettable night with the love of her life, Emma Kingsley's life has been changed. She now works three jobs, goes to school full time and does everything she has to do to support her reason for living; including being a stripper, to make ends meet.

When Grayson find himself severely injured and the only one left alive out of his entire squad, it puts things into perspective. He is now home and has one mision, to make Emma Kingsley his again.

I could not get enough of this story. From start to finish I devoured it to find out what would happen next. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series!

PS- The audio version of this book only enhanced Cristin's brilliance as an author. Jeffrey Kafer and Xe Sands do a fantastic job of narrating this story.

Unforgettable Characters

Cristen Harber won me over right away with this riveting story about two kids from opposite sides of the tracks falling in love. It began with book one and continues here. Well narrated, it was a treat to listen as well-developed, unforgettable characters were meant to share thier future. The angst level is high because the path to their HEA is not easy. Now I'm moving on to book three... I'mean off to one-click!

Grayson and Emma!

Grayson has a lot of regrets in his life but leaving Emma is the one that haunts him. He had planned to finished out his term with the military but one mission changed everything and it has shown him that life can be taken in the blink of an eye and he is determined to win back the heart of the only woman he has ever loved.

With the help of her family Emma is balancing school, working and being a single mother. Her heart broke for the second time when she found out that Grayson had passed away so when he calls she is shaken to the core.

When they reunite the chemistry and connection between them is stronger than ever but he is still dealing with the aftereffects of his service and she has a secret that will change everything. The narrators do a great job of bringing out all the emotion and angst of this story.

Love this author!

This author is an amazing writer. This book however is a short story that doesn’t finish. It only gives a third of a story and leaves you hanging. If it weren’t for that I would’ve given it a five star straight across-the-board.

Perfect besides for one thing



You have to read the first book to understand the second and the second answers questions of the first. Basically the first book ended on a cliff hanger. After all the building up they were doing for a relationship, why all of a sudden at the end, they were separated and living singular lives ?

Only for her answers that but to me it’s a poor excuse because he was so in love with her but he decided to just up and leave? If you love her so much why leave in the first place ? He was letting the situation with his dad and her dictate his love life.

The story line is intriguing and creativity and put together well, but the saturation of sex scenes and detail is just cringe.

Rating 8.5/10
Eligible for a movie series. Yes...the sex scenes won’t be as detailed and drawn out lol

Just gets better

Installment 2 of this series gives us Grayson back from the dead and he has one agenda. To get Emma back. With the realization of having a family and Emma working and going to college, Gray knows he has lot to make up for. Emma easily allows Gray back, but there are some obstacles they need to overcome. The inclusion of Emma's family gives a lot of background and reasons for Em not to give Gray that second chance, but is her love strong enough to ignore all the warnings? I am enjoying this series, it's addicting as we get to know the characters.Time to grab book 3 and continue the amazing narration by Xe Sands and Jeffrey Kafer. The truly bring the story to life. Xe's voice provides such love and compassion as you listen it is easy to become entrenched in the lives of Gray and Emma along with Jeffrey's vulnerability he is instilling in Gray. Loving it!

Only For Her

Only For Her is book 2 in the Only series by Cristin Harber. Book 1 ended with Emma being told that Grayson has been killed in the line of duty while in the army. She later finds out that he is still alive and in town. He finds out where she lives through a favor from a friend and shows up on her doorstep. When she finally lets him in he discovers that not only did he leave Emma without a word, he left their daughter too.

Narration by Xe Sands and Jeffrey Kafer was great.

Excellent come back.

Okay, so I had no idea what to expect when I got here... but superb come back. I don't think there was a better one, and you'd a lot to make up for.

Xe brings an amazing older side to Emma here, she works hard, too hard to make sure her life and her daughters ticks along. There is so much going on for her that she just doesn't see how much those around her love her.

No spoilers though.... This is a must to listen if you've bought the first. :) A very satisfying side to the series and had my emotions all over the place.

Full review posted on Part 4.
