Only For You by Genna Rulon Book Review!

Only For You (For You #1) by Genna Rulon
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: Genna Rulon
Published Date: September 24th, 2013   

Kindle, 350 pages 


“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.

Only For you is a story of sacrifice, heartache, romance, love and there's even some butt kicking involved! Only For you tells a story discussing a topic that is both hard to write and hard to read. To immerse yourself in a world so painful and dark and to do it well and to make it realistic is no easy feat. Rulon gives her heart to this book and it is depicted in every chapter.

It was written with a finesse a lot of new and self published authors do not possess. I am quite pleased and surprised with how much I loved this book and how well it is written. There was nothing left to be desired, no bad character development, or incomplete endings. This is a beautiful book of tragedy and love--prevailing love. 

I loved the characters infinitely more than I anticipated. The banter between characters is a nice distraction from the usual boy wants girl, girl wants boy, the end--kind of scenario. The scenery, the characters, the plot all well developed. This is quite possibly one of the best New Adult novels I've read thus far. 

I highly recommend it and I don't do that often. Read this book, let it consume you, let it anger you, smile laugh, and take it all in. You'll thank me later ;)

Until the next book...
