review || ONLY FOR US { blog tour }

OFU Amazon

The third installment of the Only series. 
Must be read in order.

Grayson and Emma. First love. True love. And... they have a daughter. Abandonment is his curse. He left his woman, survived his team, and missed the moment most precious to a father. Until now.

I didn't know you were killing yourself with work. I didn't know you're raising our daughter. So help me God, had I known, there is no military force on earth that would've kept me from you.

Love needs to heal all, or they won't survive the collision of their separate lives. Emma must reach deep into her heart that is barely hanging on and find forgiveness. Grayson, wrecked with PTSD-filled nightmares, must prove that he's here to stay and able to rebuild his family against all odds.

I need to say I love you. But what I mean is I love you--in a way that defies definition and exists only in a world that you and I are in.

Only for Us is the third installment in the Only series. All novellas will release Spring 2015.

{ excerpt } .
“I’ve done nothing for you to give me that trust, but I need you to anyway.”

I’m not pressed against his chest anymore. The warmth that encapsulated me moments ago is gone, but I feel different. Life’s shifted—I’ve been hanging on this roller coaster for years, and now it’s as if we’re cautiously slipping toward smooth sailing. The lump in my throat eases, and my eyelids lift, my gaze falling on the most handsome man I’ve ever seen.

“What do you say?” He inches closer.

“I love you, Grayson.” Deep breath. “When it comes to us, I’m all in.”

Rating: ★★★★

"...You're the only family I've ever had, and I want that back."

We've now seen the relationship begin and Gray disappear, and we've seen Gray come back. In this installation to Cristin's ONLY series, we see Emma and Gray work for normal.

Gray's interactions with their daughter (his carbon copy, mind you) were adorable. And his Googling about toddlers, afraid he's going to mess something up? Oh, gosh, kill me now. He's so damn sweet.

Gray lets some of his insecurities show in US -- and they deal with more than being a father. He stood up to his old man, offers Emma what he hopes are answers, and attends a family function with Emma.
Emma's hand slips free from mine, and I'm suddenly on my own. Fuck me. She thought I was supporting her? No way--she was holding me together.
Emma's brother, Gray's once best friend, doesn't take Gray's coming back too well and Gray is terrified of the reaction from the only family he's truly ever known. Gray is still fiercely protective of her, even toward her siblings. He knows he's made mistakes where Emma's concerned, but if there's one thing he knows for certain, it's that he will spend the rest of his life making it up to the girl who has held his heart for years, the only one to take away his nightmares.

This is not to say that Emma's a pushover. We get to see more of her spine in this book and I love it. I love the type of mother she is, I love the type of sister she is, but more importantly, I still love who she is with Gray. Their high school love is certainly a more mature one now, even if Gray's only been back a little while.

I love that he calls her 'pretty mama' (even when issuing orders to 'move boots'). And I loved the Ryan/Gray conversation about being his baby sister/his world. Sure, these themes remind me of a number of my favorite TITAN couples, but they're said so sweetly, genuinely, that you can't help but wish for a guy like that for your own (if you don't currently have one of those editions, anyhow).

And oh, gosh, I love the Delta segue. Cristin... You have some happy ONLY/TITAN friends, that is for sure.

"...If there's one thing that you need to know it's... Ems, I was made for you."
