Every Little Thing by Samantha Young
Reading this book took me away from all my worries and transported me to a beautiful beachside resort town. The vivid descriptions of the scenery and the very real, very engaging characters with their everyday struggles, failures and victories, their intense chemistry and torrid love affairs jump right off the page. The talent of the writer is such that not only was I so completely invested in the main characters' love story but the supporting characters' stories as well. Before I even finished this book, I was dying to get my grabby hands on the as yet unwritten stories of the supporting characters, because their secrets are so compelling I still think about what hasn't been revealed yet hinted at and how it will shape the next books in the series. The Hart's Boardwalk series is definitely on par with the On Dublin Street series, but different, with its own flavor, a different culture. It's an auto one-click for me, 5 stars, and a Must-Read for all contemporary romance fans. [March 2017]
“Do you sell a hole in the ground?”
“I’d really like to buy one. You know so it can swallow me.”
“Well … I’ll have to ask Bob if we sell those.”
“If it’s uncomfortable.”
“If what’s uncomfortable?”
“Having your head that far up your ass.”
“You’re a real comedian today, Lawson.”
Hart’s Boardwalk Series Reading Order
The New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series returns to Hartwell, Delaware—the perfect place to get away from it all, and find what you never knew you needed....
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….
