First loves never die but Grayson Ford comes close. Bleeding out in a war zone, he barters with God. Bring him back alive, and he'll make it right with his girl.
"All I want is Emma. I need her, and I fight for her memory. A story. A smile. Anything. But it's all blank."
Emma is not his girl anymore. Time has skipped by, and life's been hard. She strips to pay the bills, waitresses to fill the hours between classes and her third job - all while working to be the best mama she can be to the little girl who will never know her daddy. Even though Grayson abandoned her, she mourned his death. That's until he calls, and she discovers that everything she knew was wrong.
"It's him. The him that ruined my life. That made my life. That confused my mind to the point that I can't figure out if I've been destroyed or set free. The him that is dead."
He's back with one objective - Emma Kingsley - and she never sees it coming.

Writer, reader, now an avid listener, why hadn't I discovered this before!
Okay, so I had no idea what to expect when I got here... but superb come back. I don't think there was a better one, and you'd a lot to make up for.
Xe brings an amazing older side to Emma here, she works hard, too hard to make sure her life and her daughters ticks along. There is so much going on for her that she just doesn't see how much those around her love her.
No spoilers though.... This is a must to listen if you've bought the first. :) A very satisfying side to the series and had my emotions all over the place.
Full review posted on Part 4.
Cristen Harber won me over right away with this riveting story about two kids from opposite sides of the tracks falling in love. It began with book one and continues here. Well narrated, it was a treat to listen as well-developed, unforgettable characters were meant to share thier future. The angst level is high because the path to their HEA is not easy. Now I'm moving on to book three... I'mean off to one-click!
"A must read to continue this fantastic series!"
Only For Her by Cristin Harber is the second book in her Only series. It continues the story where Only For Him left off, so you must read this in order. Once again Cristen Harber has captured my heart and does not let go.
When Grayson Ford felt he had one chance of escaping the hell he called his life, he knew he must take it. Even if it meant loosing the one thing he loved the most.
Ever since that one unforgettable night with the love of her life, Emma Kingsley's life has been changed. She now works three jobs, goes to school full time and does everything she has to do to support her reason for living; including being a stripper, to make ends meet.
When Grayson find himself severely injured and the only one left alive out of his entire squad, it puts things into perspective. He is now home and has one mision, to make Emma Kingsley his again.
I could not get enough of this story. From start to finish I devoured it to find out what would happen next. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series!
PS- The audio version of this book only enhanced Cristin's brilliance as an author. Jeffrey Kafer and Xe Sands do a fantastic job of narrating this story.
"Only For Her"
Only For Her is book 2 in the Only series by Cristin Harber. Book 1 ended with Emma being told that Grayson has been killed in the line of duty while in the army. She later finds out that he is still alive and in town. He finds out where she lives through a favor from a friend and shows up on her doorstep. When she finally lets him in he discovers that not only did he leave Emma without a word, he left their daughter too.
Narration by Xe Sands and Jeffrey Kafer was great.
Great second audiobook in this 4 book series! The narrators are two of my favorites and the story is enthralling. Can't wait to listen to book 3.
"Good, fast read. But ..."
It is my opinion, after reading two out of four books from this series, that the author only needed Xe Sands as the only narrator. Jeffrey Kaffer's voice would be great in an espionage or mystery detective series, NOT a romance. I hope if Cristin Harber never uses Jeffrey Kaffer in another romance. He sounds like a serial killer. Other than that, I am enjoying the story. I would have enjoyed it more with just Xe Sands or a male voice that is not super intense, bordering on frightful.
