About the Author

Raine Thomas is the award-winning author of bestselling Young Adult and New Adult fiction. Known for character-driven stories that inspire the imagination, Raine recently signed with multiple award-winning producer Chase Chenowith of Back Fence Productions to bring her popular Daughters of Saraqael trilogy to the big screen. She's a proud indie author who is living the dream.

Raine is a hopeless romantic with a background in the fields of mental health and wedding planning...two areas that intersect far more than one would think. Her years working with children and young adults with emotional and behavioral challenges inspired her to create protagonists who overcome their own conflicts. When she isn't writing or glued to e-mail or social networking sites, Raine can usually be found vacationing with her husband and daughter on one of Florida's beautiful beaches or crossing the border to visit with her Canadian friends and relatives.

My Review:
So, Raine Thomas is known for writing Young Adult novels that tend fall under the paranormal romance genre. When I heard she was writing a New Adult romance that was realistic fiction, I became really curious. I wondered how that transition would go. And I'm here to inform you all that it went extremely well. For Everly is a book that is jam-packed with romance, intrigue, and great character development. I always felt like I was seeing a movie. There is never a dull moment in this book.

What shines in this book, to me, is the characterization. The characters in this book are extremely well thought out and layered. Our female lead, Everly, is a girl in her early 20s who is not only studying but has a tremendous amount of responsibility as the caretaker for her ailing grandfather. Cole, our male lead, is a pitcher in the Major League with a lot of wealth and fame, who is also in his early 20s. As different as these characters are in terms of background and personality, they both face the same dilemma which is: trust issues. Through each other, they learn to overcome these issues. Granted, Everly has a much darker past than Cole. Cole had a great upbringing and great family. Everly didn't. Because of this, she always keeps people at arm's length. She has been hurt too much. Cole on the other hand struggles with the issues that all famous people deal with: Is this person who is approaching me doing it for me or do they want to get something out of knowing me because of my fame?

What I loved about Everly, the female lead of this book, is just how real she was. She tackles on so much and I think many people could relate to her struggles because there are many young people out there with really tough lives.

Can Everly trust Cole with her past? Can Cole trust Everly with his future?

I don't even know where to begin. I'm going to try and not fangirl all over this book, but it's going to be hard. I still have a reading hangover that I can't shake (that's a good thing).

The issues addressed in For Everly touched my soul, and I know many people will relate in some way with Everly's struggles both past and present. Her life hasn't been easy, but she doesn't have a whiny why-me attitude; instead she pushes herself hard to pay the bills while earning her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.

Cole, a Major League pitcher, is hot, famous and rich, and lives the kind of life ninety-eight percent of us can only dream of. In chapter one, he displays some idiotic behavior, but his career and contract renewal are on the line thanks to a secret rotator cuff injury, so I get his less than stellar behavior. He does redeem himself, and then some, by chapter four. He's an amazing guy, and he makes me want to drive to Turner Field so I can `catch' (don't groan) my very own a ball player.

When Everly treats Cole's injury, the banter between them is pitch perfect, and when I wasn't crying over a heart-wrenching scene, I was laughing at their flirting attempts.

I stayed up until three reading because there's so much intrigue and foreshadowing in this book. I needed to know who, what, where and why. There are a few jaw-dropping twists and it's surprising when the real villain is revealed.

Raine is the queen of rich characterization and world building, and her writing makes me feel like I'm part of the story and not just reading a book.

I received a complimentary copy of For Everly from the author for a read and review. This does NOT affect my honest review!

I was very excited with the opportunity to read Author Raine Thomas new title. I became a fan of Ms. Thomas books with her Estilorian series. I knew that FOR EVERLY, would be different from the books I became familiar with, and that I associated with Raine Thomas, but I was up for the adventure, and was not disappointed. I loved the story!

For Everly a New Adult novel followed the story of physical therapy student Everly Wallace and Major League Pitcher Cole Parker.

When Cole begins to have problems with his pitching shoulder, he is concerned that this would mean the end of his career. So with the help of his older brother, Cole is placed in the hands of Everly a brillant student who Cole is assured is more than qualified to treat his injury, while also keeping it out of the press. The two begin to work together, Everly slightly hesitant due to Cole's reputation of being a womanizer, and with the responsibility of taking care of her ailing grandfather, paying the bills, and completing her degree Everly does not want to take a wrong turn. Although, her emotions betray her when in Cole's presence, especially due to the fact, she had always been a major fan of the handsome ballplayer, she has the poster in her closet to prove it:) Also, due to the death of her mother and her brother's suicide, it is difficult for Everly to become close to others. She feels safest when the barriers are up. But Cole, privileged and used to having what he wants, at first sees the young beauty as a challenge, but surprises many as well as himself at the real feelings he is soon to develop.
