My Review of ‘Only Ever You’ by Siobhan Davis!

Only Ever You

Siobhan Davis

Release Date- February. 28, 2019

Genre- Contemporary, YA/NA, Rockstar Romance



He’s the hot-as-sin rocker hiding a secret that would devastate his fans. She’s the only girl he’s ever loved, but keeping her safe means he had to walk away… 


My entire life is a lie, propelled by one wrong decision that altered my fate.

If fans knew the truth, they’d run away screaming. But all they see is Ryder Stone, moody guitarist and lead singer of Torment, and a potential notch on their bedpost.

Only two people know who I really am. My manager has a vested interest in keeping my secret, and the girl I was forced to leave behind doesn’t even know the true extent of my shame.

Losing Zeta is both my biggest regret and my proudest moment. But she was the glue keeping me together, and I’m struggling to survive without her. Especially when demons from my past continue to haunt me and the threat of disclosure is ever present.

When she reappears in my life, this time, I’m too weak to push her away.

Her love has the power to save me.

Mine has the power to destroy her.


I’ve worked hard to forget my past. To rise above my messed-up childhood and make something of myself; however, there’s no forgetting him.

Ryder’s gorgeous face and drool-worthy body are plastered over tabloids and TV screens, reminding me I’m still in love with the boy who captured my heart in juvie.

When he failed me, I thought I’d never again experience such heart-crushing pain. But watching him fall out of clubs with a succession of different girls renews the agony, resurrecting countless unanswered questions.

Now my boss has sent me to interview him. It’s a massive scoop for the magazine, and turning it down would kill my career. So, I delude myself into thinking I can handle this.

Perhaps this is the closure I need to finally move on.

Except I’m terrified nothing has changed and one look into those soulful eyes will suck me in again.

Ryder almost destroyed me last time. This time, he could ruin me forever.


My Review


Siobhan Davis has done it again. ‘Only Ever You’ has ripped my heart apart, only to put it back together page by page.

This book is full of angst, turmoil, heartbreak, and heart-warming moments.  Everything you could want from a standalone contemporary romance, Only Ever You has it!

This book has touched on a lot of tough subjects, and there are a few sensitive topics that may cause triggers so please be aware before reading.

Only Ever You starts off with Ryder and Zeta meeting while they both are in juvie.

gripsherhandThe connection between the two is instant. Neither of them has any family and they rely heavily on each other to make it through their time there. Ryder is battling demons that only he knows about, while Zeta is trying to make it through her own turmoil.

The things both Ryder and Zeta have gone through and continue to go through during their time in juvie will break your heart. It’s like they can’t catch a break and just when you think it can’t get any worse for them…it does.

After he leaves juvie, demons from Ryder’s past come back to haunt him and to keep Zeta safe…he walks away.


Switch to 8 years later…

Ryder has never forgotten Zeta, Zeta has never gotten over Ryder.

Fate puts the two back in each others path BUT, those demons are still after Ryder and unfortunately, the heartache these two go through is just getting started.

huggingThere were so many times that Zeta probably should have walked away, but she saw the real Ryder and knew that he was better than the demons that haunted him. These two are the definition of true love and when times got hard even though Ryder tried to push her away, she hung on tighter.

I absolutely love Zeta, she might have broken a couple of times but she was such a strong character. Ryder, my poor sweet Ryder. There was soo many times that I wanted to slap him upside his head and hug him all at the same time.

“I love you,” I lift my head up, staring into her beautiful eyes, eyes swimming in emotion like my own. “And I need you to understand that every song I’ve written, every word I’ve put to paper, has always been about you.” – Ryder

I am a HUGE Siobhan fan, there is not much that she’s written that I haven’t read but I can almost say as far as standalone’s go, this could be one of my favorites from her. As I said, Siobhan touches on some sensitive subjects and one, in particular, doesn’t get talked about nearly enough so I’m really glad that it was a big part of this book. Only Ever You is definitely a 5 star read for me!

If you like angst, YA/NA, rockstar romances, then Only Ever You is the book for you!
