Blog Tour: ONLY FOR YOU by Genna Rulon

If you're following our blog and Twitter, you probably know how much we love Hunter and Everleigh from Only for You. We actually christened ourselves as the godmothers of Genna's debut novel. Haha! As much as we are thrilled for having the chance to read and review this book, we are much more thrilled to be part of the OFY blog tour!

Genna was so generous and sweet to agree to have a character interview for our stop and we can't wait to share with you what happened when we interviewed Hunter and Ev!

Warning: You may experience major swooning.

Before you go and read on please be warned that this interview has MAJOR spoilers because we wanted to delve into specifics when doing this. Sorry. But the bright side is, you might want to read the book if you want to read this interview so bad! We mean, you SHOULD definitely read the book!!!

And to those who have read OFY, on behalf of Genna, thank you so much. This interview's for all of you who have loved Hunter and Ev's story like we did!


For The Bibs's OFY book review and playlist, click here for Nikki's review and here for Sy's review.


The Bibs: Hi guys! Welcome to our little book blog! We are so thrilled you agreed to this interview. Thank you for that. We really really adore you both. We understand that Griff and Sam couldn't make it. But maybe some other time, like when their story is out? Hi Sam and Griff! You're both welcome to our blog if you feel the need to talk about anything and everything!

So... Let's get down to business and we wanted to ask Hunter first. You sent Everleigh out on the first day of the self-defense training when she made some snide remarks, but what did you really think of her? Be honest! Don't edit or censor your answers just because Ev is here and you want to impress her

Hunter: *chuckles* I noticed her the minute I walked into the room. I can't explain it, but she just stood out. When I overheard her snarky comments to Sam, it took everything I had in me to control my desire to laugh. If I hadn't been responsible for the training of the group as a whole, I would have joined in her laughter, but I had an obligation to do everything in my power to teach the girls how to protect themselves. Everleigh was my sacrificial lamb to ensure no one else made light of the goal. But between us, I wanted to throw her down on the mat and silence her in far more pleasurable ways.

Everleigh: You could have fooled me…you acted like the asshole I accused you of being. Are you just making up as you go along so you can get lucky later?

: Angel, you and I both know I’ll have you later either way. I’m just telling Nikki and Sy the truth.

The Bibs: Oh wow. Okay, maybe we don't need to remind you about censorship? Haha. We don't do censorship here *wink*. Second question is still for Hunter. If your family hasn't influenced you, do you still see yourself so passionate about anything martial arts related?

Hunter: I would like to think so. Martial art—the discipline it requires—is well suited to my temperament, but it's hard to know for certain. It was a great way to get girls as a high school kid, so maybe *winks at Ev*.

*Ev rolls her eyes in return*

The Bibs
: Hmmm.. I think Ev will agree with us that by merely existing, you have girls flocking to your direction, yes Ev? Haha

Everleigh: Please don’t encourage him. You have no idea what it’s like going out in public with him. Every time I glance over my shoulder I see a sea of dumbstruck women in our wake—not that I blame them. His packaging is breathtaking, but what’s inside is even better.

The Bibs
: Ohhhh… Do you see our drool over here? We’re wiping it now. Haha! So Hunter, do you see yourself doing something else aside from being an agent? And no, you can't tell us you'd be a sensei because you're already one. Pick another choice. One that'll surprise us.

Hunter: Hmmm. I have a strong desire to protect. I suppose saying I would be a cop would be cheating too...you two are strict. I would probably be a social worker, it would provide the opportunity to protect and still allow me to be active. I can't imagine spending all of my days sitting behind a desk, I need movement.

The Bibs: Okay, we are literally swooning here. Why do you have to be all cute and all that?

Hunter: It’s a curse *smirks*

The Bibs: Anyway, this we are very much interested to know the answer to this question, was it love at first sight with Everleigh? Do you think what you two have is for keeps?

Hunter: It was definitely lust at first sight *looks at Ev and grins*. The love came a little later, probably when she took me to task for suspecting she was going to poison me at Higher Yearning. It was the first time I had seen the sweetness that could temper her fire. It was intoxicating. I KNOW what we have is forever. I wasn't exaggerating when I told Everleigh she was "it" for me. There would never be another that resonated with me the way she does *holds Ev hand*. Any other woman would just be a pale substitute.

Everleigh: Oooooo, that is so sweet. You know I love you, right? Because I do, with everything I have. *kisses his lips gently*

*Hunter grabs Ev’s head and serves up an R-rated kiss*

The Bibs
: Ohmygod. Did we just really witness that?! I mean. Okay, you two get a room! Haha! Well, maybe after our interview. Next question! If you could live a life of another person for one day, whose life would you want to experience?

Hunter: In real life...Dog the Bounty Hunter. That guy is badass! If it could be a fictional character, probably Hawk Delgado from "Mystery Man" by Kristen Ashley. He has his own army and rescues hostages for a living. Plus he knows how to control a stubborn woman, which would come in very handy with Ev *winks at Ev*

*Ev elbows him in the ribs*

The Bibs: Do you really have to mention a KA alpha male?! We already turned into puddles by just your existence and then you have to say that?! Not fair, Hunter, not fair. *Bibs shake their heads in unison*

So let's get a bit more serious and talk about Sam. What was going on in your mind when you found out what happened to Sam?

Hunter: When Ev called me, alarm bells started ringing in my head. Of all of us, Sam was the most reliable with texting her every move. The fact that she was late and hadn't contacted Ev or Robbie was such a departure from her routine…I feared the worst. When I received the call that a victim had been found I knew it was Sam beyond any doubt. I was devastated, I had grown to love Sam, like an annoying little sister, and the thought of what she had suffered—if I had known who the perp was at the time, he wouldn't be breathing now. Then I remembered I would have to tell Ev, and my heart dropped. I knew it would kill her and I would have to be the one to deliver the news and prepare her for what would follow. I promised myself I would do everything in my power to support Everleigh, help take care of Sam, and ultimately catch the bastard who had done it.

The Bibs: How did you feel when you saw her in the woods?

Hunter: *looks at Ev seriously* There are no words. I have encountered enough death and violence as an agent that I should be desensitized, but when it’s someone you care about…someone the person you love cares about—it was like a grenade of emotions was set off in my head. Anger, concern, regret, love, sorrow…they all converged. It was too much to process, so I focused on getting Ev where she needed to be, gaining basic details from the officers on duty, and hauling ass to the hospital.

The Bibs: We can't say we know how it feels like because we haven't experienced it but just thinking about it is really really hard, what more for you guys. What we can say is we understand. Thank you Hunter for answering those questions so truthfully. We still have so many questions, so many that it could actually be compiled into a book. Maybe some other time? But now we have to hear Everleigh’s thoughts. And this could get interesting.

So Ev, what was really going on in your mind when you found out Hunter's real job?

Everleigh: You may need to edit this for your readers if I answer you honestly... "That mother-fucking-son-of-a-bitch-ass-munching-bastard-douche-bag-cock-sucker!" That is actually the cliff notes version. I was already heartbroken, and discovering his deceit was a betrayal I could barely process. I had always believed—in a small dark corner of my mind—that we would find our way to one another, that he truly loved me. When I heard the news that hope died, and I was destroyed. I didn't know if I would ever feel whole again. It was the lowest moment of my life when combined with watching Sam suffer.

*Hunter wraps his arm around Ev’s shoulders and pulls her into his side, kissing the top of her head and stroking her arm, offering silent comfort and support*

The Bibs: Ahhhh.. So sweet you two. Back to us Ev.. Haha! Do you think Hunter is "the one"?

Everleigh: He damn well better be after all I went through to get here. It's hard to explain unless you have found what we have; he is my best friend, my support system, my lover, my love...he is the part of me that always felt empty...a loneliness that was never filled by anything or anyone else. *looks Hunter in the eyes* He fits me, like puzzle pieces.

Hunter: Do you see this Bibs? Under all that fire and snark she is the epitome of tenderness. She commits her whole-heart to everything she does; Thank God she chose to give that heart to me. I am a lucky man.

Everleigh: Now you are definitely getting lucky tonight. *Ev laughs while stealthily wiping a tear from her eye*

The Bibs: Uh-huh, yeah. Major swooning over here. Well this next question is interesting, Hunter inked his skin with your name, do you plan to get a tattoo as well or do something permanent similar to what he did?

Everleigh: I never actually thought about getting ink. I'm not opposed to the idea. I am certainly confident enough of my love for him and him for me to make the permanent commitment that a tattoo would imply. I just don't know what I would get, that spoke of my love for him as beautifully as he did. See, he always has to one up me...if he had just tattooed "Everleigh" on his damn chest I could just answer "Hunter" and life would be easy. But no, my man has be all creative and sentimental, making it impossible for me to equal his gesture. See what an asshole he can be. Freakin' show-off.

Hunter: *chuckles* When will you just accept that you can’t best me, I beat you when I’m not even trying, you just admitted it. You’re setting yourself up for a life of disappointment if you keep trying to win, besides I can think of another way to memorialize your love and commitment to me other than inking your beautiful skin.

The Bibs: Can we turn you both into key chains or something? You two are so cute we want to bring you everywhere! Haha. So Ev, let’s talk more about you and Sam. We adore your friendship with Sam so much and I know you'll do anything for her. But to what extent?

Everleigh: There is virtually nothing I wouldn't do for Sam. She really is my sister, closer than most sisters. I would never give up Hunter for anyone--but she would NEVER ask that of me--so I can't imagine what I wouldn't do for her. I would kill to protect her (don't tell Hunter I said that, he'd probably have to file a report). I would fight to save her, even if it meant fighting Sam herself. I would even meddle to direct her where she needs to be when she doesn't know what's good for her *fake coughs* Griffin *fake coughs* (In perfect stereo Hunter also said “Griffin”)

The Bibs: You really love Sam just what we thought. That is so sweet of you. We’re sure Sam will be reading this and probably cry a tear or two. What you said was just beautiful.

So Ev, just like want we've asked Hunter: If you could live a life of another person for one day, whose life would you want to experience?

Everleigh: Juan Valdez...all that delicious coffee surrounding him every minute of every day...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Hunter: *laughs* I’m going to fill a bathtub with lukewarm coffee for her one of these days, hand her a straw, and let her go to town.

Everleigh: *gasps* That is a freakin’ genius idea!

The Bibs: *Nikki looks at Sy* Cute right? For the last question, This goes for the both of you. So it's not a secret the we love music to death. Well it's so obvious since we decided to integrate music into our book blog. Well anyway, we are not talking about us and since we're talking about music, we just had to ask you this. If there is a song that reminds you of each other what would it be? Hunter first.

Hunter: She’s Every Woman by Garth Brooks is the song that most reminds me of Ev, it sums her up perfectly. *kisses Ev’s neck, just behind her ear*

The Bibs: Here we go again with the swooning. Enough of that Hunter, you two can continue that later after the interview. Ev?

*Hunter laughs*

Everleigh: It depends on the day…there are still some days I would say “Sweet As Hole” by Sara Bareilles *elbows Hunter in the ribs* I’m kidding *mouths ‘No I’m not’ to Nikki and Sy*

I think the song that best describes Hunter for me is When You Say Nothing At All the Alison Krauss version. I love the Keith Whitley version too, but since it’s my feelings about him Alison’s is more appropriate.

The Bibs: Nice song choices! Well that’s it folks. Thank you very much Hunter and Ev for gracing our little book blog and actually spent time answering some questions. We really appreciate and know that we love you both and we hope we can do this again.

We weren’t able to drag Sam and Griff but we sent a question to Griffin over email and a message to Sam and we thought of sharing it as well. So guys, read on.

The Bibs
: So Griff, why didn't you make a move on Sam before? Yes this is just one question and a bold one.

Griffin: Because I'm a know-it-all dumb ass. I figured I would finish up my final masters courses before making my move so I would have the time to pursue her with focused attention, and as a result I missed my window. When I think of what I could have prevented if I had stopped trying to manage the situation—FUCK! I may never forgive myself.

The Bibs: Sam, we decided not to ask questions for you because we're eagerly waiting for your own story. We just want to tell you how much we admire your strength. You're one in a million, Sam. Not all women can endure what you've gone through and come on top of it. You're a survivor.

Sam: Thanks ladies...your support is amazing. I'm still not quite ready to talk about it all yet.


Thank you guys for taking the time to read and get to know Hunter and Ev more. This book is highly recommended by us. So if you haven't read it, below is your chance to win an e-book copy from the author herself. Thanks Genna for your ever generosity! We love you!

We can't wait for Griff and Sam's story! Add it to your Goodreads bookworms! ❤❤❤

Sy reviews: SEARCHING FOR SOMEDAY by Jennifer Probst

Title: Searching for Someday
Series: Love Spells #1
Author: Jennifer Probst

Kate has given up on love—at least for herself. She is both blessed and cursed with the ability to sense a romantic connection between two people—a gift that her family passed down for generations. When Kate launches her own matchmaking company, Kinnection, with her two best friends in a cozy New York town, she has to put aside her own romantic disasters to make her business a success.

But when a furious man stalks into her office and accuses her business of being a scam, Kate is given the ultimate challenge to prove herself. Slade puts himself in her hands and asks Kate to find him love. Enraged at his arrogance but stubbornly eager to prove herself, Kate agrees, dedicating herself to the journey of finding him love...only to find herself falling for him along the way.

Purchase from:


I'll start this by saying thank you for giving me a chance to get an advance reading copy of this book.

Searching for Someday is a story about Kate. She owns this matchmaking service called Kinnections. She believes in love and happy ever afters. This is also a story about Slade. He is a divorce lawyer. He on the other hand does not believe in love. Let's just say that Kate & Slade have opposite beliefs in love and that them being together spells a complete recipe for relationship disaster.

Kate, for me, is not really well-liked. Many times I felt so frustrated with her character. But there were also times when I felt really sorry for her. Slade on the other hand though, I felt is a strong character. I love how honest he has been. He had a lot of prick slash jerk moments on the book but that's the reason why I totally dig this story. I love how the author made these characters repel each other yet managed to still pull each other together.

I like how Jennifer continues to tell a side story about strong family ties. Yes, this is a story about love but just like in her other series (Marriage to Billionaire), I appreciate how she tells the readers how important a family's love is. She may not outright discuss it in her books but you always feel that it's there.

You know how they say, "ahh, the feels on this book." Well, I felt that here. And there were parts in this book that really tug at your heart. But my favorite would be where this line was mentioned:

Just because someone was broken doesn't mean they should be thrown away.

I think every person has felt broken at some point in their lives, I know I have so that line just hit it home for me. And when I got to the epilogue, that beautiful epilogue, I think my heart was torn in pieces and put back again at the same time.

Here's my Searching for Someday playlist:

I Knew You Were Trouble (Avril Lavigne)
Love Is A Verb (John Mayer)
Ho Hey (The Lumineers)


All those songs are my Kate's song for Slade. There are some lines on each of those song that really fit them.

Cover reveal: DON'T LOOK BACK by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

Series: Undeniable #3
Author: Madeline Sheehan
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Tegen Matthews is the daughter of Dorothy Kelley, a club whore in the Hell’s Horsemen. A plain little girl, Tegen falls into the gritty world of the motorcycle club. When she meets a sweet, caring boy, she embraces the warmth and affection he shows her. Cage West is the son of the president of the Hell’s Horsemen. Tall and blond with deep brown eyes, as he grows up Cage realizes the power of his dimpled smile and smooth drawl. With one chance encounter, Tegen becomes forever tied to Cage. Following is a wayward journey that is filled with regrets, mistakes, and heartache, pulling at the threads that hold them together. Cage and Tegen fight hard but love harder, and in the end, what matters is where the journey takes one girl and one boy, who have been twined with one another since the beginning.

This is Tegen and Cage’s story.

Love doesn’t erase a broken heart, and it sure doesn’t change people. But no matter how old, how flimsy, how frayed the rope of love is, it keeps you tethered to the people you love.

To be honest I'm a bit nervous doing a review for this book. This is a biker story and the badassness of this series is at a whole different level that I'm intimidated by it and I'm not even sure if I could give justice writing how kickass this series particulary this book is. But I will try.

Unattainable is the third book of the Undeniable series. I must say Madeline just outdid herself in every book from this series. Undeniable was a bit of a shock for my mental faculties. Unbeautifully was a really beautiful story written and Unattainable was like a the final perfect missing piece of a puzzle that when I finished reading it I was just filled with so much badass biker joy. Haha!

Just like other biker stories, Unattainable does not have those perfect and light story behind it. In fact, it's so far from it. The characters are imperfect that they've become too close to reality. Can I just say? I've blurted out more than once that this book is crazy. I mean that in a good way. I was so sucked in to the characters, to their problems, to their emotions that I was ready to crawl inside that book and yell at all of them to get their shit together. I was that hooked.

There are just some things I didn't like, like the drugs, the cheating and calling their women a bitch. I guess though that's really their way of life and I accept that but again I don't think I'll ever like it. :) Rape is also something I'm still traumatized when coming across in a book but thank God this did not have that. Well not really.

I love how this story revolved around Cage & Tegen and at the same time Ellie & Dirty. I also like that we still get more glimpses of Deuce here. I have like a love/hate relationship with that man since Undeniable.

Unattainable is definitely not a hearts & flowers and a swoon-worthy type of read. I'd say it is not for the faint-hearted too. I don't know, somehow I always felt the need to be brave and to brace myself when I read this series. There were plenty of ugly things that took place in and out of this motorcycle club but there were also beautiful things. And even if the beautiful stuff were rare and few, it still created an impact that it outweighs the bad and the ugly.

Like brotherhood and love. I love how these people fight hard but love just as hard too. Indeed, what Eva said was true:

"From chaos, the strongest sort of love is usually born."

Here's my Unattainable playlist:

Always You - Ingrid Michaelson
Mean - Pink
Falling Slowly - Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova


Always You is my Cage & Tegen song since they have loved each other for forever. Tegen had always known he loved Cage but Cage took a long while before realizing it. Mean is also my song for both of them because those two fight fierce. Falling Slowly is my song for Dirty & Ellie. I wish to hear more from them. Theirs is a beautiful story about love too.
