In the sequel to the bestselling new adult romance 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 now 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?
You know how most authors put that big plot twisting, heart breaking moment around the half way point in the book?? Not Lauren Blakely. Nope, she saves it until the 96% mark. She rips your heart out at the very end. At the point that the characters should be getting their happily ever after and riding off into the sunset, the moment where you should be feeling all warm and fuzzy inside because of the complete happiness, you will instead be crying your poor little heart out.
Can you tell I am still feeling the pain of that moment in the book, even weeks after I read it? And as odd as it may sound, that is the very thing I think I loved the most about this book. The unpredictability of it. Just when you thought you knew how the author would end things, she throws you for a loop. One so intense, that like I said, is even now something I get teary eyed thinking about.
Trey and Harley deal with some major stuff in this book. Remember, there was a huge secret revealed to us at the end of TTOI. It was something pretty big and I wasn't sure how it would change the relationship between these two. I knew it would be probably be hardest for Trey, given his past and I was right. He struggles with it, which causes him to fall back into some old habits. While I understood he was in a bad place, I still wanted to punch him HARD for a couple of things he does!! I was spitting mad and cussing him out (luckily no one was around to witness my rant!).
And Harley must deal not only with the fall out of the news she shares with Trey and his reaction to it, but also the discovery of a secret that her mother has been keeping from her. This takes her on a journey she never expects but is long overdue. I was so proud of her for dealing with it all and not slipping back into old habits herself, she truly matured so much over the course of this series.
Every Second With You is the final chapter in the Harley and Trey story. It is full of angst, heartbreak, self-discovery, hot smexy moments and most of all....hope. Just !
If can't wait to see what Lauren Blakely has in store for us next!
