Every Second With You Review

So I can't believe I was a total space cadett and forgot that we were supposed to post our reviews for Every Second With You on the today, I'm sooooooo sorry Lauren Blakely and KP @ InkSlinger. I some how managed to put the date on our calendar for the 17th. EPIC FAIL! But with our mistake, we are giving away a copy of Every Second With You. YAY! To get the copy we are giving away, pay attention to our twitter account, ( @crazybookchicks ) to see what we would like you to do!

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?

I have to say that I get extremely excited when my email ding alerts me to a new tour that involves Lauren Blakely. I have yet to read a book by her that I didn't just absolutely fall in complete love with, Every Second with You reached so far beyond my expectations that I'm grateful for getting to be part of the tour, even if I goofed the dates up. When I received the ARC I've never been so hesitant to read a book before. Normally I'm thrilled and can't wait to dive in, but knowing this is the last book for Harley and Trey... I wasn't ready to say goodbye. I'm still not ready to say goodbye and hope that somewhere down the road we get a little visit from these two characters.

So much happened with Harley in The Thrill of It. She was able to let her former life go and be in a serious committed relationship with Trey. She wrote a book about her life as a call girl, told her mother about it, and let her best-friend know about her life. Harley was growing up, she was becoming someone better, and she was falling in love with Trey. Now Trey had his own issues. Some deep rooted emotional issues that he tried to block out by sleeping with older women so he didn't have to be in a relationship with anyone. No reason to get hurt. Then he met Harley and that changed everything for him. So for the first time he opened up to a relationship with the girl he was head over in heels love with. But sometimes when everything is going good, the other shoe drops.

We learn at the end of The Thrill of It, Harley's pregnant, what we didn't find out at the end of the book is how Trey takes it. Every Second with You picks up shortly after Harley finding out and doesn't make you wait to see how Trey takes the news. The thing is the past doesn't always stay hidden and when your future is a reminder of the past, how do you cope? I was in shock when a certain past came back with a possibility of Trey's. I was worried for Harley, hell I was worried for Trey. I was more than terrified for Harley when an ex client saw her and recognized her on the plane as well. The past doesn't always stay in the past unfortunately, but with determination and love, sometimes things can be overcome. 

The thing I love about Lauren Blakely is that she takes us on emotional journey that has you feeling everything these characters are going through. EVERYTHING. I felt Harley's emotions as if they were my own and I felt Trey's as if he was a part of me. I LOVE that about books. IT's golden and not everyone can do that, so when I find a book like that I hold on to it, hug it, cry a little with it, but I will always go back to it. Harley and Trey's story is one of those books for me. I will never look at a plane the same way either. Why you ask? Well you're just going to have to read it to find out. Do I recommend this book... HELL YES! Will I reread this book...HELL YES! So you need to enter the awesome giveaways and pick this book up and read it like crazy if you haven't already!

 When I finished The Thrill of it I was excited that Every Second with you came out. I was Not Disappointed! I love Harley and Trey! Both trying to recover and get on with their lives. If you haven't read The Thrill of it stop reading :)
Trey and Harley are navigating through their lives together as a couple. They are adorable! What happens when new live is created ???? Yep Harley gets pregnant. And knowing Treys things with his brothers, he's scared. They both react a little bad based on their issues. But their love and commitment to talk to each other about their fears powers through! I loved that part of the book! Harvey finds out she has grandparents who love her and her mom kept them from her. They are awesome people! I also loved meeting Trey's parents more in the book. I can't say enough how much I loved the flow of this book. I can't say more else I'll give away big things. Lauren Blakley hit this out if the park! I cried at the end. Totally in love!!
