Every Little Thing (Hart's Boardwalk Book 2) (English Edition) Reviews
Samantha ist zurück. Während mir Buch 1 der Serie nur so lala gefiel (man hat bei der Autorin ja schon aufgrund der Vorhängerbücher gewisse Erwartungen), war dies wieder ein typischer SY Roman: sexy-romantisch, enemies-to-lovers mag ich sowieso sehr gern, die Seiten verflogen nur so. Die Charaktere waren mir wieder sympatischer, die Handlungen greifbarer als beim ersten Teil der Reihe. Ich hoffe auf weitere Geschichten aus Hartwell, denn im Buch kündigten sich einige weitere interessante Handlungsstränge an - das kann eine verantwortungsvolle Person nicht so stehen lassen :).
Ich wollte im ersten Band schon sehen, ob sich Bailey und Vaughn finden, es war dort schon abzusehen, dass sie sich finden würden.Ich wurde nicht enttäuscht.Dieses Buch enthält alles was ich von Samantha Young gewohnt bin. Es ist unterhaltsam, temperamentvoll, sexy und einmal angefangen, kann man es kaum aus der Hand legen.Ich habe bisher alles gelesen was Samantha geschrieben hat und kann es kaum erwarten ihr nächstes Buch zu lesen.Von mir nur die Bestnote!
Wie immer schreibt Samantha Young flüssig und man verliebt sich sofort in die meisten Protas ;) es ist eine leichte Lektüre zum Seeledahintreibenlassen 😊Freue mich auf weitere Geschichten !Die on Dublin street Serie fand ich jedoch um Längen besser!
This was my first in the Broadwalk series and although can be read as a stand-alone would probably be better if book one had been read. There is a big cast and at times I felt it held up the story as the dramas of the seaside town was a big part of the storyline with the romance fitted in between. Told in both first and third person. Bailey was a hard character to get to know and her holding onto a hurt from 15 years ago was frustrating. I liked Vaughn and his relationship with his father very sweet. Enjoyable read.
Very nice romance. I enjoyed Baileys wit and Vaughns alphaness. I also enjoyed the sneak peek at the other characters lives, it gave me just enough to have me anticipating the next book in the series. The writing was very good and fast paced, no typos that I noticed and it felt fluid. Another great book by Samantha Young.
I loved this book! It was better than the first book in this series. Loved the characters and can't wait for the next book.
This series returns with its second book and this time readers are treated to more from the sizzling but unrequited romance between Hart’s Boardwalk’s own princess, Bailey Hartwell, and the businessman she more than likes to clash with, Vaughn Tremaine.Bailey has been with her boyfriend for 10 years now and despite having the feeling of settling for him rather than truly loving him, she continues her relationship with him, that is until she witnesses the unimaginable. What stuns Bailey more is her indifference to her breakup. Feeling more angry and embarrassed than broken and emotional, Bailey does what she always does and buries herself in her work all whilst being supported by her friends; Jess, Emery and Dahlia, oh and of course Cooper.Vaughn has a strong protective bond toward Bailey and despite his best intentions to keep her at a distance, he finds himself firmly rooted in protecting her from the ever present danger courtesy of the Devlin family. When he finds her fighting off an attacker, Vaughn’s feelings for Bailey start to get personal and he decides to step in to support her. With Bailey vulnerable, Vaughn’s support gets physical and despite their explosive connection, Vaughn realises that he’s made a huge mistake and poor Bailey is left one again spurned by a man, only this time it really hurts.With Vaughn and Bailey side stepping around each other, it comes down to their friends to try and make the pair realise that they were born to be together but with these two, they have a battle on their hands. Vaughn has demons that the must overcome in order to accept his feelings for Bailey but first, he must open up to her in order for her to see him for who he truly is.During Vaughn and Bailey’s story, we also get to see a little more of Emery's mysterious layers being peeled away, especially how she reacts to none other than Jack Devlin. Jack is still the elusive character in this story and appears loyal to no-one but at the same time, there is a strong feeling that he’s planted himself within his family's business in order to protect those he once called his friends.Dahlia also had a little drama of her own when the ex who appears to have broken her heart turns up in Emery’s book shop and despite him leaving as quickly as he arrived, thanks to Bailey, I’m sure we’ve not heard the last from him.Ian and Stu Devlin continue to wreak havoc in Hart’s Boardwalk and this time they enlist Vanessa, Bailey’s sister and part-owner of the Inn, into their schemes. Vanessa is the polar opposite of Bailey, she’s driven by money, looks and doesn’t care if she hurts her sister along the way. When she’s witnessed entering a hotel room with Jack Devlin, by Vaughn, Bailey starts to worry even more why exactly her sister has re-emerged in their hometown.We also get to spend some time with Liam, Vaughn’s father, and I wouldn’t be averse to spending a little bit more time with him either, especially when it looks like he may be coming to Hart’s Boardwalk for an extended visit. Is love on the horizon for him as well?I really do love this series. It’s beautifully written and provides readers with an escape to a place where dreams come alive and HEAs really do come true.
Every Little Thing, Samantha YoungReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsGenre: romance, eroticaLike thousands of readers I got sucked in to the magic of Samantha's romances by way of the wonderful Joss and Braden, in On Dublin street, and their book is still one of my all time favourites.I’ve read several from that series and enjoyed them and have been looking forward to this new series. Tjis one is tagged Erotica, but to me its more eotic romance, a great romance but withsome hot and steamy sex rather than just erotica,I enjoyed the first book, The One real Thing, but wasn’t blown away by it. First books do have a hard job though, and few achieve the great start that Dublin Street did.The couple that intrigued me the most in book one were Bailey and Vaughn - the ST between those two jumps of the page! They had sparks jumping between them at every meeting, and the caustic wit the two share had me smiling widely.Bailey is so bright and bubbly, always out to help others, see that everyone is happy, so running her Inn is perfect for her. Still, the awful Devlin family are trying to find a way to oust her, they want to own as much of the town as they can and have used some very dirty tricks in the past. I love the way Bailey not only stands up to them but uses her sharp wit against them.She’s been with boyfriend Tom now for ten years, hoping that they will marry and have a family soon. She’s in for a big shock though....and it changes things between her and Vaughn.They’ve always hate a hate hate relationship, but underneath that everyone feels that its defensive on both sides, and it really seems to have started with Vaughn rebuffing the open friendship Bailey offered him when he arrived, the same as she does to everyone. He wasn’t impressed at her initial opposition to his plans for his new hotel, and things went downhill from there.Its clear Vaughn is attracted to her, and just as clear he doesn’t want to be. He’s always been Mr No Commitment and it suits him, but he knows that Bailey spells danger to that, and seems to use his acerbic wit as a defence even as he cringes inside at what he’s saying. Bailey responds likewise, they both bring out the worst in each other, but that gives some terrific scenes for the reader.Its a real romance here, but a long time coming, with many forward and back journeys that had me inwardly screaming at them! Of course that's perfect for me as it brings bucket loads of angst and emotion.As with all Samantha’s romances its not just a two person story, but brings in many others, some from book one, some who look set to become future books. Story seeds, those hints of what/who might be next. Its always fun to try to spot them, and I think I’ve got a couple here, there are some individuals who really intrigue me. Quiet, shy Emory, what’s her story? Why is she so reserved, so closed off? Dahlia, she seems to have lots of things to reveal, and we’ve only seen her as a very secondary character. Jack Devlin, met him in book one, and he’s here too, and still as much a puzzle as ever. I can’t believe he’s really such a bad guy, and yet the things he’s done, and does here too seem to point in that direction, then he does a couple that point the other way. Even Vaughn’s dad has potential, not as a main character IMO, but maybe a secondary romance thread in a book? He’s certainly got the heart and character for it.Its a great read, I loved it, was entranced by Bailey and Vaughn, loved the puzzle of their relationship. I did wonder about a few characters in here, Vanessa, will she make a return later, Jack, how can Cooper’s former best friend change so much, do what he does, and of course Vaughn’s awful friend Oliver. What on earth did those two ever have in common?There’s a couple of surprises towards the end that I didn’t see coming ( and one I did!) and it makes me wonder if they’re future plots in later books? .Stars: Five, a great read, perfect blend of sensual romance and solid story.ARC supplied for review purposes by Netgalley and Publishers
