Emery
I’ve loved Jordan Grady since I was eight. 
Since he became my protector.
Since he became my safe haven each night. 
But I was younger.
Off limits...
Until high school when he finally kissed me. 
And for a few fleeting moments, everything was right in the world. 
Then I was forced to do the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do...
Disappear from his life without a trace.

Grady
I’m Alabama’s star right tackle—and a real prick. 
I live my life by a few solid truths.
Life isn’t fair.
Don’t let anyone get too close.
And those who claim to care about you can up and leave. 
But you know what they say about things that disappear...
But Emery Pruitt had never been mine.
Even if she had returned after four years.
Older.
Confident.
And more beautiful than the night she vanished.
But it didn’t erase the fact that she’d left me.
So, why find me now?

Emery stood there, her eyes dancing with amusement. Her skinny jeans
and sparkly black tank top made her fit in with the rest of the girls in the
crowded bar. But she wasn’t just any girl. “What’d you do?” 

My eyes narrowed. 

She ticked her head over her shoulder. “To make her ditch you in the
middle of the dance floor?” 

“I told her I wasn’t taking her home with me.” 

Emery stared at me, her brows drawn. “Why not? Isn’t that what you college
football players do? Get girls to go home with you?” 

I shrugged. “Not sure. You wanna come home with me?” 

She laughed and her entire face lit up like it did when we were
younger. And that right there. That was the reason the other girl wasn’t coming
home with me. She didn’t look at me like Emery did. 

The thought hit me hard, nearly leveling me. 

I wanted to be looked at the way Emery looked at me—like she saw the
real me. I deserved that.

"Was that what love felt like? Because I was pretty certain, since I was eight years old, I'd loved Jordan Grady. He was the boy who saved me. The one who protected me. The one who made my darkest days bright."

I've loved all the books in the For You series, but this one is extra special. It touches on a tough topic and did an excellent job of pulling my heartstrings from beginning to end. I especially loved the close connection that Jordan and Emery developed at a very young age that allowed them to accumulate a shared collection of years worth of memories.

As the author placed me inside the minds of the characters as she told their story in dual POV I felt like I was right there. It was so perfect to grow with the characters as their innocence turned into awareness and their friendship turned into love. It was also painful when I knew why Emery disappeared and I couldn't share my knowledge with Jordan who was suffering from the loss of his best friend and partner in crime.

Emery turned to her next door neighbor in her time of need when she was very young and he didn't let her down. In spite of her being younger than him, he allowed her to hang around and tolerated the teasing he received for it. He kept her secrets and shared his own. He knew she had a crush on him, but she was too young for him, so he spared her feelings and tried to make her feel special without rejecting her. He thought he had time to wait for her to grow up, he thought she would always be there...until she wasn't.

This story broke my heart, but the split opened it wider to make room for even more love. I yearned for the lost years to be restored and for their pain to be eased. I struggled to be patient as they dealt with miscommunication and misunderstandings. I raged at the injustice when assholes threatened their safety and their future. I sighed with satisfaction at being reunited with some favorite characters from previous books. Can you tell that I loved it from cover to cover?
