Genna Rulon's -- Only for You -- Book Review Tour


Title:   Only for You (For You #1)
Author:  Genna Rulon
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date:  September 24, 2013
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.


 “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.

5 out of 5 Stars!
To say it is an emotional roller-coaster is like saying...does fire burn hot? It sure does!!! I was sucked and and spat out and left mending a torn heart and book hangover like none I have experienced to date. I laughed, cried, laughed some more, sobbed, shrieked, laughed, sighed, swooned, panicked, and fell in love with this book! I have to say this book caught me by surprise. A good and bad surprise to be precise. I fell in love with the characters. The suspense of the events going on gripped me. Which had me turning the pages as fast as my eyes could carry me.

Everleigh aka Ev, is an amazing young woman. She is attending college with her best friend and roommate Sam. Ev and Sam are like sisters and their funny and witty interactions are a blessed hilarity in a time when tension is high at their college campus. The only thing that is tenser than the events at school are the moments Ev gets a bad cup of coffee. LOL Coffee is Ev's go-juice and their isn't ever enough and don't you dare add anything to it!

Papa Smurf (Ev's 12 yr old blue Honda) being the butt of a few jokes and thrilling moments too. I mean "who would want to steal Papa Smurf?" 

Hunter *swoon* "The man who entered was arresting, breathtaking." Oh yes, Hunter is a specimen worth every drool and sigh, "he was authentic sex incarnate." Being the instructor in a self-defense class the college was hosting, Hunter was all business. Good thing Ev is a business major! Their back and forth of one liners and one-upmanship was flirty and funny. And moments when your heart is swooning at "Alpha-Hunter"! 

There are very serious and very suspenseful and traumatic moments in this book that gripped me and made the book more serious than just your average romance read. But the love and friendship showed no limits between Ev and Sam, as sisters they are shown 'Only for You' to understand their bond can't be broken.

Can't wait for book two....Sam's story continues. <3
