Title: Only for Him
Author: Cristin Harber
Published: February 2015
Grayson Ford and Emma Kinglsey—close since they were kids, opposites in every way. He’s the stuff high school crushes are made of, Mister Popular, and captain of every team. She’s artsy, cute, and not in his league, though fully aware of Summerland’s “I Dream of Dating Grayson Ford” support group.
I can’t say no. The girl’s had my heart since before I knew it went missing.
He hides a life of hell. His father hates him, his mother’s gone. Emma is his only savior, yet she doesn’t know her power over him. She’s the only girl he wants, the only one he could ever tell—though he won’t.
I’m stronger, bigger, more of a man than he’ll ever be, but because I ruined his life, I’ve taken his crap, his attacks, the vulgar nature of his existence.
Until she discovers Gray’s embarrassment, his humiliation. Emma fights for him, for a chance. Theirs is a Cinderella story that she believes impossible. But as the layers peel back, it’s just a guy who needs a girl in order to keep breathing.

Ana will put Only for Him on her second shelf!!
I obviously need to pay more attention when I select a book. I was caught completely off guard when I discovered this was a novella! But, lucky for me, it was a very good beginning to what I now know will be a novella series. Although, due to the limited number of pages, it felt like I just got a taste of this world and these characters, I still managed to to enjoy their interactions and their storyline. And root for their romance!
