Review: For Everly by Raine Thomas


EverlyecoversmallTitle: For Everly

Author: Raine Thomas

Genre:  New Adult

Publisher: Iambe Books

Publication Date:  May 27, 2013

Description: Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.

Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn’t fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.

In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.

When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.

**Mature Content Warning** This is a New Adult novel recommended for ages 17+ due to language, sexual content, and mature subject matter.


For Everly is a refreshing new adult novel. The main characters, Everly and Cole, both have issues but they mature as the novel progresses. I enjoyed reading a romance in which the characters don’t break up over silly misunderstandings.  Raine Thomas takes two people who help each other through their issues and show us what love can be.

You can’t help but like Everly and Cole, as well as Everly’s grandfather. Their characters are well developed and the story flows well. Along with the budding romance are some twists that make the story interesting and make it difficult to put the book down.

I definitely recommend For Everly. Available at Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
