From New York Times Bestselling Author, Marquita Valentine, comes the second book in her new adult series, Boys of the South. 

***New Adult- suited for 17+***

Loose ends left loose for too long tend to strangle.

Cole and Violet knew it wouldn't be easy. They knew their relationship would take work. But when the press finds out about Violet Lynn’s newest boyfriend, they start digging. And when his past come to light, exposing all of his family’s secrets, their relationship begins to fray. 

Country Music’s Golden Boy, Jaxon Hunter, has it all, except the girl that got away. What she saw, she really didn’t. What she thought happened, he allowed her to believe for reasons so insane that no one would ever have believed him if he had confessed. But now that everything’s out in the open, he’s going to do his damndest to convince her that he’s the only one for her. 

Now Violet must choose between Jaxon— her first love and the guy she thought had cheated on her—and Cole—the guy who helped her heal and love again. 

Or will one of them make the decision for her?

My review of Only For You

I loved the first book in the Boys of the South series and was excited to get the opportunity to read an early copy of Only For You with the promise of an honest review.

I totally loved Only For You. I love getting to re-visit characters and I was especially happy to get more time with Cole and Violet. In Live For You, book 1 of the Boys of the South series, we got a happy for now ending for Cole and Violet. They were together, but you didn't really know what might happen next.

Violet must go back on tour because of contractural obligations, which means she will be on tour with her ex-boyfriend Jaxon Hunter, who just happens to be Cole's brother. Jaxon totally believes he is still in love with Violet and has it set in his mind they belong together. Thanks to Cole's asshat of a daddy, Cole breaks up with Violet mid-tour. I'll be honest, Cole really made me angry through much of this book. I understood why he was making the choices he made, but was still made at him. Surprising enough, it is Jaxon who steps up to help out Cole. Jaxon is also sick of being pushed around by his father (Cole's father too), and gives Cole the ammunition he needs to be free to be with Violet.

Violet never stopped loving and Cole, and even when he was messing up royally, Cole never stopped loving her. I honestly think all the trials they went through in this story only made them love each other more and stronger as a couple. I have to say the epilogue was my favorite part of this entire story. It gave me the HEA I was looking for and only made me love Cole and Violet more than I did before.

I also have to say I fell a little bit for Jaxon (Jackson) in this book. I can't wait to see what happens with him in the next Boys of the South book.
