Review: Only For Him by Cristin Harber

Only For Him

Author: Cristin Harber
Publisher: Mill Creek Press
Series: Only #1
Pages: ebook, 70 pages
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: February 24th 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.

My mind is already doodling Mrs. Grayson Ford in imaginary notebooks. He has no clue where my head is at… But, given that I didn’t see what just happened coming, maybe I have no clue where his head is at either.

* ONLY FOR HIM is the first book in the Only series, all of which will release in Spring 2015.


First off if you not into serials this is not for you. Just thought I'll mention that.
Because Harber decided to publish this in a novella serial, four of them to be exact. I personally quite love them. Well at least I like the idea of it, until I realise I am gonna have to wait nearly two month to get the next crumb. And that's what this felt like a crumb. I was given a tiny taster. The amazing thing? I am hooked.

In this short amount of time Harber made me care for Grayson and Emma. I am invested in them, their story. Even if the beginning was a wee bit melodramatic at time. Then again, they are in their late teens. It comes with the territory. The group of friends are sweet, the relations ship between Grayson and Emma adorable. I love their chemistry, the smut is delectable...
It's your usual teen cute & fluffy. Until it suddenly isn't anymore. There is a huge twist at the end. One I didn't really see coming. Well, at least Emma's part of it. And the mega cliffy left me hanging in the air. Literally.
I have no idea what happened. I am totally shell shocked.

And I just want more.Correction. I need more.

Which is in my opinion the best reference I could give Harber actually.
The plot is short, sweet and with a wicked twist, the character building while a bit cliche, is well done and the writing style is great, just as expected from Harber

What I can say is that I see Harber's MO when it comes to Grayson. Emma, I can just not even fathom, let's just not go there, I just can't. It's brilliant master stroke on Harbers side. That garanties that I shall be reading the next 3... whenever I manage to get my hands on them that is. Did I mention TWO months?!!

Which brings me back to the beginning, if you have issues with serials, this might not be your kinda thing. Well, actually, wait until the last is published and read them all in one go.
A must for fans of the genre and the author.
