The fourth and final installment of the Only series. Must be read in order.

There comes a time when Emma must face the secret she kept from Grayson. But she never thought it would be while she stood on stage at Emerald’s. The seconds she has to convey that her life is in danger are lost in the devastation that she sees rip through him.
She pinches her eyes closed. “Don’t leave me. No matter how mad you are, please, please don’t leave me here alone.”

But there’s more on the line than just Emma’s safety. There’s the danger that brought Titan’s Delta team in to the strip club in the first place. A threat that’s too close to home, too close to the family, the daughter and woman Grayson plans to claim.

I push away the sudden spring of fear. Life’s too unknown, with hidden enemies and unseen terrors. The idea that I could lose her again… it’s unbearable.

A love story like Grayson and Emma needs a forever love, and somehow they’ll find their way to her fairytale.

“You’ve always been by my side. From the day we met. And God knows there were years of secrets and storms and pain and tears, until I came out the other side.”


“I’m a better man, and I exist for you, for us.” I hold my breath and watch her silence. My chest hurts; my lungs burn. My throat is tight as I choke on the decades’ worth of sentiment. “I love both of you so deeply that my survival, my sanity, would be gone if I couldn’t be yours.”

My voice cracks, and her lips find mine. It’s a soft kiss but packs a powerful punch. She whispers, “We’re yours forever.”

"Everything was supposed to happen for a reason."

We have followed Emma and Grayson now from High School, separation, heartbreak, war, hard times and reconciliation. Emma had one last secret to tell and unfortunately  Gray has just figured it out as all Hell breaks loose. Suddenly they are involved in some trouble and it will take a bit of finesse and maybe a little Titan to smoothe it out. 

This situation only serves to show how devoted Gray is to protecting Emma, forces some opposing people to work together, and is a catalyst for change in several aspects of their lives. Gray is determined to be the man he is meant to be even if he was derailed a bit by his past.

"I'm not the best guy out there...But Jesus f***, I promise you Emma. I will be the best one for you No more sh** jobs, no more paycheck to paycheck. I'll figure it out."

I love this couple and their sweet girl, Cally. They have been through so much pain and heartbreak. There is no way Gray wants anything to come between them again. They are now a more mature, wiser couple and they have more life experiences for decision-making. But they are not perfect and are still figuring things out and mending scars and rifts. 

"Grayson, however it happened, this is us. We either make progress toward our future of we drown in our excuses."

We have seen them go through so much over the years. This is finally the time where these two get to figure out the rest of their lives. They have both been to Hell and back. They have both made choices they are not proud of and had consequences. They have been known pain and devastation, as well and profound joy and passion. This is the final installment we have all been waiting for. The time for them to dig in and make the most of the second chance they have been given. Time to prove to those others that were hurt that they are sorry. And it also shows us more how Gray fits into the larger Titan family.

"You're mine, Emma. But really, pretty mama, I'm all yours."

"Families make mistakes. They walk away. They come back...And blood doesn't make a family."

I loved how this series has crossovers with Delta Team and Titan!  It was a different type of series for Cristin Harber, but was emotional, sweet, romantic, heartbreaking, inspiring, and had enough tension and drama to keep me enthralled throughout four short installments. The characters were likable and well developed and I totally fell for them. I am going to be sorry to see this sweet NA series end, but it just make me more eager for Parker's book, Black Dawn, and Javier's book Delta: Revenge.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I love the way this fourth installment tied everything together -- Emma’s secret, Grayson’s reappearance, Titan, their families, and Callie. I could not have asked for a better resolution to this series!

These two had a fight to find their happy that surpassed even their separation after high school. For a while it seemed things just kept getting harder and harder for them.

There was less from Emma’s family in this installment, though her brother Ryan has a major role. I love the glimpses his involvement give of a possibility of him and Sarah.

Jared, Brock, and the other members of Delta team have a great alpha presences in the situation, as understanding mentors/bosses, and as teammates. They are a nice bridge between Emma and Grayson's story and the Titan stories that readers love from Cristin Harber. I cannot wait to see Emma and Grayson again in future Delta/Titan stories and to see where they go next.

Only Forever is a great younger feeling diversion from Titan. It has a little bit of the op/mission focus that Titan novels have, while keeping a lighter feeling. It has a great depth of emotion, tension, and life experience that appeals to a wide audience.

Only for Him (Only #1)
Add to Goodreads

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.

The second installment in the Only series. Must read book one first!! 

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. Until he calls, and 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.

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 moments 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.
