Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Every Second With You = Sex. Love. Addiction. Heartache. Pain. And Hope.

In the sequel to the bestselling THE THRILL OF IT, Harley and Trey face new challenges that will make battling blackmail, sex addiction, and a virgin call girl past look easy…

I used to think love was a lie. Now I know it’s real, powerful, and I don’t want to lose it…But my future scares me, and there’s no way this can be happening, especially since I’ve finally broken free from all the people who wanted pieces of me. I don’t even know how to start over, but I have to find a way. So when I discover what my mother’s been keeping from me, it doesn’t make me hate her. It gives me hope for a new life, outside of New York. But the ties that bind me to this city are so strong, sometimes they are chains. If only I could leave with…


I will do anything for her. She owns me, heart, mind and body. But when Harley tells me this, I am rocked to the core, and terrified of what happens next. Especially when this time it’s not her past that chases me, it’s someone from my own. And that someone is messing with my head when I’m trying to be strong for Harley. But all I really want is to escape with the girl I love…For the rest of our lives.

How can you move forward when the past keeps chasing you?

I enjoyed getting to know Trey and Harley in The Thrill of It. Their circumstances were refreshing and interesting. If you haven’t read the The Thrill of It, book one; please do not read any further as there may be spoilers.

Book one ends and leaves you with wondering whether or not Harley is indeed pregnant, and if she is, how it is going to impact not only her new life, but also the life of her boyfriend, Trey. A baby just may destroy him and set him up for a relapse in the addiction he’s been fighting to overcome.

I think that this story could have gone in several different directions, taking the reader on a journey of emotional chaos. I am so glad the author decided against the roller coaster ride of what-ifs, assumptions, and could of beens. I hate when the twist in a book was based on a lack of communication. Lauren Blakely made these characters face their issues head on, together, and in a way that was overall realistic and entertaining. I enjoyed reading about how these characters matured, overcame obstacles, and moved on to bigger and better things.

This was the first series I read from Lauren Blakely and will keep my eyes out for more. She has a unique writing style that I find is the perfect amount of giving the reader ALMOST everything we want, and leaves us wanting more.
