Every Second With You by Lauren Blakely

Every Second With You(No Regrets #2)

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?

"This isn't what I would have chosen for us. Not now at least. But it's our reality, and we have to deal with it."
 Every Second With You picks up right where The Thrill Of It ended.  The big bomb at the end of TTOI is dropped and it doesn't go over very well.  For anyone.  There are so many emotions involved for Trey and Harley... for their parents.  It is not the best time to rock an already shakey ship, but reality has a way of slapping you in the face when you least expect it.

Trey and Harley are addicts and always vulnerable to falling off the wagon.  They have to learn to trust each other and to trust themselves.  They grow so much in Every Second With You.  I feel such pride in both of these characters.  They learn what and who truly matter in their lives and more importantly how to let go of the things and people that they cannot control.
"You and me not being together is like a snowstorm in Hawaii.  It's like a glacier on the sun.  It doesn't happen.  It can't happen.  Because there's no way we aren't meant for each other, Harley.  There's no way it can be anything but this."
Oh Trey! Could he be any more perfect?  There is just something about that boy... and just when I thought I couldn't love him more... life deals them another HUGE blow.  And his raw emotion... the way he handled it all.. GAHHHH I fell in love with him all over again.
Life is strong, and life is fragile.  It is beauty and it is pain.  I have both, so unbearably close to each other right now that it feels like a cruel game.
 Every Second With You is a beautiful conclusion to this incredible story!  It is a story of pain and healing, of betrayal and trust, of addiction and recovery, but most of all it is a love story.  A love that will be tested time and again.  Will Trey and Harley survive the storm?
"...sometimes people meet in the toughest of circumstances, and the strangest of places, and there's no reason why they should be together, except that they can't not be."
