Title: For Emery
A For You Novel
Genre: New Adult Sports Romance
Release Date: February 4, 2019
Welcome to my stop on the release blitz for the latest novel by J. Nathan, For Emery! This is the 4th novel in the For You series, and although I haven’t read the previous books, it in no way effected my enjoyment of this one. Let me warn now about possible triggers involving domestic violence, however, this story is tastefully done, sweet, and romantic.
Neighbors Jordan and Emery meet when Emery is eight years old and Jordan is eleven. Escaping from the violence at her own house, Emery shows up at Jordan’s window one night seeking respite from everything at home. After becoming the best of friends, Jordan finally kissed Emery for the first time once she started high school. But then she and her mother disappeared. Years later, Jordan is an offensive tackle for Alabama and the new quarterback, Flip, which Jordan despises, walks into a party with none other than Emery – all grown up. Jordan has hardened over the years, still resentful about Emery leaving, but they quickly fall back into their friendship, and more.
Jordan’s character was certainly flawed when Emery and he reunite at Alabama, but I still loved his character, as well as, Emery. All of his sweetness and gentle nature quickly returned once he got close to Emery again, as well as, his fantastic sense of humor and major sexiness! My favorite thing though was the fact that Emery had loved Jordan since she was a little girl and despite the years and miles that they were apart, her feelings had not changed.
Mery’s stepdad Wayne, as well as, the new quarterback Flip, were both obstacles to their relationship, yet they each showed amazing resilience and perseverance when it came to their friendship, blossoming romance, family, and school. And if you love a happy ending, this is definitely a must-read! Get your Kleenex ready for happy tears, because this one couldn’t have a more perfect ending. A great read that was fast-paced, engaging, and had characters that were easy to care about and invest in.
