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 don’t think it’s a secret that I adore Lauren Blakely and all of her books. Every Second With You blew me away and Trey and Harley are such spectacular characters. They have been through so much together and just when you think they’ve got their happily ever after, life comes in and turns their world upside down.

Every Second With You picks up right after The Thrill of It ends and we were left with such a cliffhanger that I was excited to see where things were going to go. I love Harley and Trey together. They complement each other so well and they have both fought addictions together and made each other stronger. I really like how much they love and support each other and as long as their together, they can get through anything. They go through some real shit so this is definitely tested and proved.

Harley’s mom kept a huge secret from her and my heart went out to her when she discovered the truth. I have always known her mom was an awful person but this further proved it. I loved how well Harley handled the situation and how strong she was. She really stuck to her guns when it came to her mom and she didn’t allow her to manipulate her or the situation. She also discovered things about her dad that really affected her but she had Trey there to reassure her.

Trey struggled a bit with some of the things he and Harley were facing and he made some less than ideal decisions but I understood that he was going through some really confusing and life changing events. I was definitely more than surprised by a few things that happened and I have to admit that I didn’t like it. However, it was only because I just want Trey and Harley to have sunshine and rainbows.

Overall, I absolutely loved this book. It’s one of those reads that you just can’t put down once you pick it up. I became so emotionally attached to these characters and their lives. As usual, the writing is fantastic and captivating. The plot was intriguing and full of surprises. I loved every second with it!
