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 comes 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?
By Marquita Valentine
“Instead of crying, I smile wider. Instead of falling to my knees, I dance
around on stage while launching into my next set. Instead of living with love,
I’m learning to live on my own. Without love.” ~ Violet Rae
I chose this quote because it pretty much encapsulates the mood of the
opening scene in ONLY FOR YOU
“These are the times I can do no more than stare at her, because my thoughts
have all piled up in my head, like a traffic jam on I-85. Only thing I can make
out is a flashing sign that says, “Hot Woman ahead. Will turn your brain to mush
for the next million miles.” ~ Cole
I chose this quote, because while it pretty much sums up every man when his
mind turns to mush, it especially reveals how much Rae affects Cole’s entire
“I’d envisioned a lifetime with Violet, with kids and everything that comes
with being married. But I blew all that to hell, with one not-so-simple
decision.” ~ Jaxon Hunter
I chose this, because I actually give Jaxon’s POV in Only For You. I thought
it was important to show his side of things…well, most of it.
“Once all those girls get a look at him, he’ll be pinned on Pinterest Boards
faster than I can say Man Candy.” ~Violet Rae
I chose this scene, because I feel like this gives a little glimpse into what
they as a couple can expect now that their relationship is out in the
“Once the thought of a guy like Cole or Jaxon being jealous would have
thrilled me down to my toes, but now, it only makes my heart ache. Jealousy
hurts—it pinches at your heart until all the love bleeds out and nothing’s left
but resentment and anger.” ~ Violet Rae
I chose this because I felt like this shows how much Rae has grown since her
relationship with Jaxon, and how much jealous can hurt us all.
“Then she pats me on the cheek, the most physical contact I’ve had from her
in years, and the little boy inside of me wants to go after her. Wants to hug
her and ask her why. But the man I’ve become won’t let him, because neither of
us will like her answer.” ~ Cole
I chose this because it breaks my heart when I think about the relationship
Cole desperately wants with his mother, yet will never have.
“As soon as we touch, something comes over me. It’s like I can feel her,
everywhere. I want this girl, but I can’t have her. Mainly, because the girl I’m
supposed to want is standing right beside her, wishing she were back in the arms
of the guy she really loves. But all I see is Bliss Davenport.”~ Jaxon Hunter on
the first time he meets Bliss.
I chose this, because I love it when a plan DOESN’T come together.
“I’m not ready for this to be over, yet.” Flipping her over, I pin Rae to the
bed, fastening my mouth to hers. She’s as hungry for me as I am for her. Our
tongues tangle, my hips grinding into hers so hard that I’m sure she’ll have
bruises or be sore tomorrow, but she doesn’t stop me, and I’m sure as hell not
I need this. I need her.
Harder and faster, I pound into her. She widens her thighs, her hands going
to my ass. She sinks her nails into my skin and I tear my mouth away, letting
out a ragged groan.
She arches her back, her tits thrusting out, and I take one in my mouth,
biting the tip of her nipple. She squeals, like I knew she would.
“Oh God, Cole.”
“Not yet, baby.”
“Please.” Her hands slip between us.
I grab her wrist and pin it to the bed, along with the other one, in case she
gets any ideas. “Patience.”
I slow my furious pace, rolling my hips, until sweat beads on my upper lip.
Her skin is flushed and she is writhing under me, lost in the sensation that
only I can do to her.
A dark thought flashes in my brain. “Did Jaxon ever do this to you?”
Her pretty eyes blink up at me, unfocused and full of desire. They sharpen.
“Cole, this isn’t the time—”
I stop moving. “Answer me.”
