Every Second With You = Sex. Love. Addiction. Heartache. Pain. And Hope.
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?
~~ 5 Trey and Harley Stars ~~
“Because it was mad love, crazy love, insane love. Because it was hard love, good love, true love. Because it was the real thing, and a love like that can’t be stopped. A love like that is inevitable.”…Harley
What a roller coaster of emotion!!! I thought this was a wonderful conclusion for Trey and Harley’s story. This story truly shows that if you have Love, Hope and Faith, you can get through anything as long as you stick together. The love story that Trey and Harley share was full of it’s ups and downs, but I loved every minute of it. I can’t even truly express what a great series this has been. I am almost sorry to see it come to an end, but I loved that Trey and Harley’s story was brought full circle.
This book starts up right where we end book 1… The Thrill of It. I can’t really tell you what that is because book 1 ends kind of on a cliffhanger. Just know that there is no time loss from book 1 to book 2. This book really pushed Trey and Harley to the limits. Both of them ended up having to deal with things from their past. I loved that even though Trey slips briefly back into that dark place, he realizes he doesn’t need to escape or cope like that anymore and turns to Harley and they work things out together.
“We all have to cope in different ways. Trey and I learned to cope in our own ways growing up. Then we learned to heal, both alone and together, in our time. Our bodies, our hearts, our minds.”….Harley
This series is truly all about coping and trying to become a better person. Both Trey and Harley were broken souls and needed to learn how to cope in healthier ways. I loved their journey, both separately and together. This book/series has had my emotions all over the place. I laughed at times, I smiled, I of course got pissed, my panties melted a time or two (maybe even more 😉 ) and I fell in love. Trey and Harley will forever live in my heart and mind.
I know that this review is short, but I can’t really go into much of the storyline because it would spoil both this story and book 1. All I can say is that I would definitely recommend this book/series to everyone. If you are looking for a unique story then you need to read Trey and Harley’s story. I will say that I was so glad that the things I was left wondering about from book 1 were all answered and resolved in this book. This was probably one of the best series finale books I have read. I had a hard time putting it down. I was truly sad to see it end.
“Life is strong, and life is fragile. It is beauty, and it is pain.”….Trey
