Blog Tour & Giveaway: For Everly by Raine Thomas

 ~ Synopsis ~
Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.
Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn’t fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.
In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.
When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.

~ Our Review ~
4 Star Review by Heather
This book is good.  I think it was a little slow at the beginning, but half way through it picked up. 
Everly is a Physical Therapist student.  She has a year left until so graduates.   She doesn't have a social life.  She goes to school, volunteers at sports rehab clinics, works and does some things for her mentor Dr. Wyatt Parker.  So when Wyatt asks her to work with his brother Cole, so his injury would go unreported and possibly leaked to the media,  she can’t turn them down.  She owes Wyatt, because he is always helping her out.  Can she work with Cole without losing her heart? 
Cole is an all-star pitcher.  He has messed up his shoulder, but knows with the right treatment he can be on top of his game again.  He doesn't want his team to know about it because his contract is up this year and he doesn't want to be traded.  Can he convince Everly to help him out?  Will he end up falling for Everly or breaking her heart?
I feel this story had the potential to be an amazing book, but it just fell short.  I am not sure why exactly, but it was slow in places and I think it needed more "IT" factor.  With that being said I would still recommend this book.
