BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Only for Us (Only #3) by Cristin Harber

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.

My review

I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

OH. MY. GOD. What a way to end the book! Let's just say Emma has some explaining to do!  

At the end of the 2nd book we had little Cally running into the house, surprising Emma and Grayson. Not the reunion that they would have chose, but they didn't have a choice. The whole thing was actually quite adorable. Grayson is awestruck by his daughter and it was a beautiful thing to read. Emma's sister Cherry is none to pleased to see that Grayson is alive and well, but Emma makes it very clear to her that he is not going anywhere. 

After the unexpected family reunion, Emma and Grayson voice to each other that they are both in this for the long run. They are fully committed to making this work and being a family. Not even a surprise ambush from Cherry and their brother Ryan can change Emma's mind. In a little surprise twist, Ryan admits that he feels partially responsible for everything that happened. Both Cherry and Emma tell him that things were set in motion long before he got involved. Later at Emma's parent's house, her mother and father seem to be okay with his reappearance, but it is very clear that Ryan is going to need some convincing. 

There are so many sweet moments in this book, especially between Grayson and Cally. Right now Cally sees him as "mommy's friend" but to Grayson, Cally (and Emma) are his everything. Right now it's the little things, like taking her out of her car seat, that mean so much to him. They may seem like normal, everyday interactions to anyone watching from the sidelines, but those interactions mean the world to Grayson. 

I liked that in this book we got a lot of dialogue between Emma and Grayson, which was something that was definitely missing from their past relationship. Something happens that could have easily made Emma run, but she gives him a chance to explain. He even gives Emma his old notebook (which he retrieved when he paid a visit to his father) full of things he wrote, but never had the courage to give to her. They are able to talk things out and finally seem to be in a good place. Emphasis on the word "seem."

The last chapter of the book has Grayson working with the Titan guys. They are going to an establishment where they suspect come human trafficking is taking place. And that is all I will say about that. 

The last book of this series is bound to be a doozy and I can't wait to read it!
