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…
Only Ever You, an all-new emotional, second chance standalone from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!
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 the 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.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Only Ever You is the third book by Siobhan Davis that I’ve now read, and once again, she puts out a fantastic, gripping story. This is much darker than Incognito and When Forever Changes, but is still a story that kept me up into the wee hours of the morning, anxiously waiting to see what comes next.
From the moment that Ryder and Zeta meet in juvie, there is a magnet drawing them to one another. While they are incarcerated, their romance is as sweet as can be: they are both virgins, sneaking small kisses and hand holding whenever they can, waiting for the day that they are both free and can truly be together. That day is so, so close when Ryder’s past catches up with him and he is forced to leave Zeta behind to keep her safe.
Eight years later, Zeta is a rock journalist, and Ryder is the lead singer of the aptly-named band Torment when she’s assigned to write the group’s biography. Being forced to spend time in such close quarters with the guy who shredded her heart is the last thing that she wants, but it’s clear that they both still are very much in love with one another. Thankfully, SD doesn’t waste a lot of time getting to them hashing out their past and reuniting, because I really wanted to see how they adjust to their new normal together. But Ryder is still keeping one last secret from Zeta, and it threatens to destroy everything in a way that is far worse than before.
Ryder is such a tormented soul. His demons are dark, his self-loathing runs deep. Zeta has her own set of issues, but they are nothing like Ryder’s. This book is so full of angst and emotional upheaval, and there is a lot of drug use and sex addiction as Ryder self-medicates and self-destructs. But at the end of the story is a beautiful ending full of redemption, hope, forgiveness and learning to love yourself. For both Ryder and Zeta, it’s “only ever been you.”
This book had me crying at so many parts, and wanting to throw my kindle during others. It’s not at all a light-hearted story, but it is gripping nonetheless, and I am in a massive book hangover.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
He kisses the top of my head. “I can admit to myself now that I was falling into a dark hole again. Recently, I’d been partying too hard, and slipping back into my old ways, but I told myself I had it under control. These last few weeks have helped enormously. Being back in the Hamptons house has always been my salvation. I keep to myself, bury myself in the music, and avoid all other temptations. I never invite people back to my house. It’s my only sanctuary. My only privacy. And having you back in my life has given me purpose. Given me a reason to clean up my act.” He tilts my face up to his. “Because I want to be the kind of man you deserve.”
“You already are.” I stretch up and kiss his lips.
“I’m broken, babe, and a part of me always will be.” He looks so unbearably sad, and I want to erase all trace of sorrow from his face.
“I’m broken too, Ryder. Maybe that’s why it works between us.”
