For Everly Blog Tour and Review

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

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.

My thoughts
I loved For Everly!!!!

I have been a fan of Raine Thomas books since I picked up BECOMING the first in the Estilorian series. I knew FOR EVERLY was going to completely different but I couldn't wait to read her new book and get sucked into the story. I was not in the slightest disappointed.

Cole is in need of physical therapy on his injured arm but to save his career it needs to be kept off the record, Everly seems to be the perfect solution as long as she agrees  and as long as they cant keep there focus off each other and on his arm. 

Everly as been a fan of Cole Parker and finding herself in such close proximity on a daily basis is a challenge, she keeps her barriers firmly in place to keep Cole's subtle advances at bay. Cole however realises his feelings for Everly are much deeper than just a crush when she is placed in danger and he becomes scared of losing her.

A relationship between the two bubbles under the surface but Everly's past keeps her from getting too close to people and opening her heart, soon Cole discovers the truth about her troubled past when he learns of her mother and Brothers death. 
The story as so many emotional layers to it, I was moved to tears on a few occasions sometimes through happiness and other times through heartbreak, the story was so touching and beautiful .

Cole Parker was HOT, and  SEXY  and sweet everything that would be perfect in a boyfriend with just the right amount of arrogance thrown into the mix. I LOVED HIM.

Raine Thomas as, as always wrote a book that kept me hooked from the first page until the last, I literally couldn't put it down.
