Review of Only For You (Forever and Always #1) by E.L. Todd

When Scarlet realized Penelope was dumping Sean, her best friend, she was devastated. Penelope was the love of his life, the woman of his dreams. Scarlet knew how far her best friend was going to fall and she had to catch him. Scarlet became Sean’s rock and helped him through a very painful breakup, but her own hidden desires bubbled to the surface in the process. When they finally gave in and slept together, she thought it was the start of their new relationship. Unfortunately, Sean didn’t feel the same.

Humiliated and heartbroken, Scarlet moved across the country and found what she least expected. She rekindled her damaged relationship with her brother, who she hadn’t spoken to in a year, and her brother’s best friend was attractive and interesting. Their relationship was natural and unforced, and she was immediately drawn to him. Would she be able to get over Sean, forget about him, by sleeping with Cortland, or would that just be another repeated mistake?

This story was great.  It's written in a dual pint of view.  We get both Sean's and Scarlet's perceptions.  Scarlet and Sean are best friends.  In the beginning of the story Sean gets dumped by his girlfriend Penelope.  Scarlet is there as his rock to help him through the break up.  This is a heartwarming story, that follows Scarlet and Sean through the bumps of taking a friendship to the next step. 

There were times in the story that I wasn't happy with the actions of the characters but overall I really loved the characters.  Sean, Scarlet, Ryan, Cortland, and Janice were all wonderfully written.  Along the way they make mistakes but that makes the reader more able to relate to them.

I would definitely recommend this book.  There is a second book coming out called Forever and Always.  I can't wait to read that one too.
