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.
I rated For Everly with FOUR AND ONE HALF LEAVES!! This book was awesome! I was sucked in from the very beginning. There is something about a hot baseball player that makes you want to smile. Cole, is for sure that hot baseball player! What I loved about this story is that it is believable. The way the story line played out could have been real life. Also, the struggles that the main character, Everly, went through are real life struggles. Raine Thomas had me hooked from the very beginning. There were also some twists and turns that I was not expecting and that made it that much more exciting. I will be looking for Raine Thomas's next book! This was definitely one of those books that I could not put down.
