Title: Every Little Thing
Author: Samantha Young
2nd book in the Hart’s Boardwalk Series
Bailey Hartwell has many reasons to feel content—her successful business, a close circle of friends, and her steady boyfriend…even if their romance feels staid after ten years without a serious commitment. The only challenge in her life comes in the form of sexy businessman Vaughn Tremaine. She thinks the ex-New Yorker acts superior and that he considers her a small-town nobody. But when Bailey’s blindsided by a betrayal, she’s shocked to discover Vaughn is actually a decent guy.
Vaughn admires Bailey’s free spirit, independence, and loyalty. As his passion for her has grown, his antagonism toward her has only worsened. Every little thing Bailey does seduces him. But when Vaughn’s painful emotional past makes him walk away in fear he will hurt her, it opens an old wound in Bailey, and she uncharacteristically retreats.
Once Vaughn begins to realize he’s made the biggest mistake of his life, he has no choice but to fight like he’s never fought before to convince Bailey that the love they’ve found together only comes around once in a lifetime.
Hartwell, Delaware—the perfect place to get away from it all, and find what you never knew you needed…
I was really anticipating this book ever since I read The One Real Thing because I thoroughly enjoyed the secondary characters there (who are our main characters here)
It did not disappoint, they are great, very well rounded characters, witty, smart, with relatable conflicts and reactions even when they are being a bit childish it completely works with the story.
The friendship here is what everybody wants to have, the kind that helps you grow and supports you when you need it most.
The romance, being one of my favorite tropes the hate to love romance. it was great, from a humorous beginning with adults acting like kindergarten children until the moment whe it actually develops into a relationship. Vaughn and Bailey had so much chemistry and steam 😳
“You’re playing nice today Tremaine, it’s unsettling me”
The Boardwalk is a character all on its own, the small town life with its camaraderie and gossip was very nicely contrasted against the snipets of city life we got to see. The story sucks you in, you become a part of them, you root for them.
It was quite an enjoyable read for me, and I can’t wait for Jack’s story I want to know what is inside his head. 😀
