"The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune's spite; revive from ashes and rise.” -Miguel de Cervantes

Samantha Whitney survived unimaginable tragedy only to discover she had been betrayed by a man who claimed to love her. Shattered, Sam spends months at a safe haven trying to piece herself back together. Ready or not, the time has come for her to return home.

As Sam struggles to resume a life that no longer feels familiar, she finds unwavering support in an unexpected, familiar face. Confronting Sam’s raw emotions and open wounds head-on, Griffin manages to take two steps forward for every step she retreats.

But when Sam is once again threatened, Griffin must decide how far he is willing to go to protect the woman he wants…knowing the cost of her safety is the risk of losing her.

Pieces For You is a captivating journey of survival, healing, and sacrifice—teeming with honesty, humor, unexpected twists, and love’s unsurpassed endurance.

• This story is appropriate for readers 18+
• Though Only For You is a part of the For You Series, the book can be read as a stand-alone.

Yes I said 6 stars! It's been awhile since I've read a book and fell in complete love with a character. I actually loved every character in this book, and the first book too.

This series can be read as a stand alone, but I don't recommend it, because Sam has a vital role in Only For You and you get the full impact of what happened to her. Griffin is also mentioned  in book 1 only for a couple of chapters, but again it sets you up for what happens in book 2. Griffin stole my heart, he is the perfect book husband. I may even go as far as saying he took over Remy's place and those are big shoes to fill.

We follow Sam's recovery after her brutal and almost fatal attack. Everleigh and Hunter are in this story a lot because they help Sam with her recovery. It was nice to see into their relationship more, the bickering was still cute :)

I loved how Griffin was introduced….she is caught ogling him and he just laughs it off because he has to be careful with her. He takes his time and becomes her rock, the one person to know exactly what she needs. Seriously I swooned so many times because of what Griffin does for Sam. Sam's therapist gave her homework, join a gym to get out in public without being too crowded, and get a job. Griffin agrees to help her out at the gym and manages to give he a massage after every gym session. I think I would join a gym just for that perk!

At the beginning of each chapter there are quotes and some stuck out more than others..

"Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a land-mine. The land-mine is me. After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting the pieces together." -Ray Bradbury

One of my favorite parts of the book is when Sam and Griffin just got done working out and she licked him.

He smelled so damn good, clean with a  hint of masculine sweat, a temptation I couldn't resist. Beyond my control, my tongue darted out of my mouth and covertly tasted the section of chest exposed above his tank. Oh god, he tasted even better than he smelled, like a chocolate covered pretzelo-sweet, salty, and addictive. "Did you just …..lick me?"  he asked, sounding both shocked and amused.

Genna has earned a fan for life, every book she writes I will buy immediately. Her writing style is amazing, she has the ability to make you laugh, cry, swoon, and make your heart beat with anticipation.  Thank you Genna for giving me my new book husband Griffin. Back off ladies he's mine!
