It is said that people’s lives are tales of two great journeys - the pursuit of happiness and the search for true love.

Edward seems to have achieved one of these ultimate goals by falling in love with Daisy.

But in his quest for true love, will he be willing to let go of his one special friend, and perhaps, sacrifice his chance for happiness?

If there’s a choice between love and friendship, will Edward sacrifice one for the other? Will he be able to live with his choice and never ask himself what if he chose the other?


Only For You was an interesting novella. It does predominantly focus on Edward’s quest for love, and his quest certainly didn’t run smooth!

Unfortunately, I didn’t really connect all that well with Edward and his best friend Ady. Edward just seemed to make several snap decisions and his mood would fluctuate depending on the response he received to a question, which I found a little jarring when I was reading, but really, his moods weren’t all that different to many people’s! I did want him to get his happy ending though, and I did end up feeling quite sorry for him during some occasions.

The story took a little while to get going for me, but once the plot really began to flow, I started to enjoy Only For You a lot more than I originally had been. I liked how the majority of it took place in Edward’s point of view, and that the third part of the novella, which was from Ady’s point of view was written in song lyrics that reflected her thoughts and feelings. It was a nice twist and I really liked it.

Overall, Only For You was an interesting story that once it got going, I really enjoyed reading.
