Overview

From New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Marquita Valentine, comes the second book in her new adult series, ONLY FOR YOU.
Boys of the South #2

Loose ends left loose for too long tend to strangle.
Cole
I knew a relationship with Violet Rae Givens aka Country Music Princess Violet Lynn wouldn't be easy. I knew it would take work. But when the press found about me and started digging... my past came to light, exposing all of my family's secrets. Now some of these used-to-be-secrets are wearing on me, on our relationship and there's nothing I can do about it.

Jaxon
Some might call me Country Music's Golden Boy...except for Violet Lynn, the girl that got away. She'd call me a lying, cheating, no good...well, you get the gist of it. But here's the truth: What she saw, she really didn't. What she thought happened, I allowed her to believe for reasons so insane that no one would ever have believed me if I had confessed. But now that everything's out in the open,I'm going to do my damndest to convince her that we belong together.

Violet Rae
I don't want to choose between Cole and Jaxon, because for me the answer is clear. Only Cole's pushing me away and Jaxon's giving me reasons to trust him again. And I'm afraid. I'm scared to death that one of them will make the decision for me.

I fell in love with Cole and Violet Rae's story in Live For You, which ended really well, leaving you satisfied, yet yearning to know more of their story.  Marquita Valentine delivers just that in Only For You, which picks up where Live For You leaves off.  Violet Rae Givens is a country music sensation who went into hiding after a tragic event in her life, ends up staying with her grandmother, and that is where she meets Cole Morgan.  Cole has had anything but an easy life and wasn't really interested in a relationship, but he couldn't help falling for Rae.  He has a past, she has a past, and together they hope to  have a future, but they have a hard row to hoe before that happens, especially when the press, Violet Rae's agent Everett, and her ex-boyfriend Jaxon Hunter get involved.  Let's just say there is a whole lot more going on behind the scenes than meets the eye, and the deeper it gets... the messier it gets.  When it seems that the world is against them, they each must make tough choices and decide for themselves just what they are willing to do for love.   Only For You was really wonderful, yet heart-wrenching.  You find out the back story behind some of the characters, which is really interesting, and sometimes really sad.  As the story progresses, the way the main characters lives are intertwined becomes more evident, along with quite a bit more truth about the past, current situations, and the characters in general, including threats, manipulation, and even blackmail.  I was really rooting for Cole and Rae, despite the circumstances that were against them.  I really loved Rae in this book.  She had such patience and love for  Cole that it blew me away.  She goes though some crap to, the really hurtful kind, but she is quite the trooper, very solid.  She knows what she wants and is determined to find a way to attain it. I loved Cole to, but he pissed me off for a while in this book and acted like a total jerk.  Granted, he had a lot going on, with tremendous responsibility, but still, I would have liked to slap him a time or two.  He has an excuse for some of his behavior, but not all of it.  He does get his head on straight and manages to redeem himself before it is all said and done, and I know a lot of what he did, he thought he was handling things the best way he could. (All of this did add a lot more excitement and emotion to the story, however).  Then there is Jaxon Hunter.  He has his moments in the land of jerkdom to, but I really liked this guy.  He kind of stole the show for me on more than one occasion.  I could not stand Everett, at all.  In fact, if a building fell on his head and squished him it would make my day.  We also get to see more of the characters we met in book one, which was fun also, and there are some secrets that have been hidden for a long time that are revealed.  There is a new character we meet whose name is Bliss, and she will play a big part in the next installment in the series, which I can't wait to read. I can't forget to mention the romance, which it is hot and steamy.  Overall, this is a great second installment in this series, and is really outstanding. I've totally fallen in love with The Boys of the South Series, and I can't wait to see what Marquita Valentine has in store for us in the next installment.   If you are a contemporary romance fan, then  this is a series I would definitely recommend checking out.

Only For You wasn't just Cole and Rae's story. This book was Jaxon's story too. Their lives are so intertwined and now, Rae has some choices to make. Does she go with the familiarity of her past or does she continue to take a chance on Cole?  In Live For You, I fell pretty hard for Cole Morgan. He's rough, tough, and sexy, but there is a soft side to Cole. He's a family man and he takes care of the people he loves. He's also learned early on not to depend on anyone. When he decided to open his heart to Rae, he knew it wouldn't be easy. With her celebrity and his family secrets coming to light, it seems the odds are against them. Despite the challenges their relationship brings, I was happy to see Cole want to take a chance on Rae. And then...things change and Cole makes some decisions that broke my heart. That said, I do think it was necessary for their relationship. It's time for Violet Rae to go back on tour. She has a career that she can't abandon, but she's torn because she wants to stay with Cole and make a life with him. Their road to happiness hasn't been easy, but she tries her hardest to make things easy for Cole to adjust to her life. I have to say that I've always liked Rae. She's suffered some serious trauma in her life, as well as living in the spotlight since a young age. I felt like she's always handled the difficult times with maturity and grace. One of the hardest tests they have to face is Rae being on tour with her ex, Jaxon. For Rae, she sees only Cole, but Jaxon won't give up without a fight.   For me, I felt like this book was largely Jaxon's story. While Cole and Rae's relationship is a focus, Jaxon nearly stole the show. He wants Rae back and he'll pull out every trick he has to make it happen. Jaxon Hunter isn't exactly who he appears to be. Like Rae, he's been a star since he was young. For Jaxon, it's always been Rae. But, Jaxon's been under his father's thumb and has made some decisions in his past that destroyed his relationship with Rae. I never once felt like Rae had any interest or was swayed by Jaxon's efforts. I was sooo glad about that. Getting to see Jaxon's POV made me understand who he really was and his motivation for getting Rae back. Going into this book, I wasn't a fan of Jaxon Hunter. Now, I'm truly excited about getting to know Jaxon even more. I have to mention the secondary characters. I absolutely love Cole's brother, Parker. His book can't come soon enough for me. Beau, is Cole's friend and we only see him briefly in this one, but I'm still anxious for more of Beau. There's a new character that was introduced in this book. Her name is Bliss and she's been on tour with Jaxon and Rae. Jaxon and Bliss have an undeniable connection and this book is a great lead into their book. I can't wait to read it! Overall, I really enjoyed Only For You. I felt like Cole and Rae were finally able to trust their love for each other and enjoy their happy. And I was thrilled with the ending! I was glad to see some "issues" get some closure, although I think said issues will impact the other books in some way. I love this whole cast of characters and the overall story has me hooked. I can't wait to continue on with the series! Quotes: ~"For what it's worth, you're everything to me, Cole Morgan. Everything."-Loc 462 ~Gosh, I sound like my mother at this moment, but I don't care, Bliss is like a baby bird with broken wings. I should know, I was once broken, and then Cole came into my life.-Loc 2283 ~Every conversation, every false want and need, drops away until all that's left is Bliss. She's what I want. She's what I need. She's not my prize, my reward for doing anything. Hell, I should be punished for the things I've lied about. But this girl, this girl in my arms...I'm kissing her without the taint of my family's legacy touching her. And it's a heady thing. I'm getting drunk off her kiss, dizzy with lust.-Loc 2362

Violet and Cole are one of my favorite couples. I fell in love with them in Live For You and I was super excited to finish their story. This story has everything you could be looking for and it is heart-wrenching. Reading it will not disappoint.
