The Thrill of It by Lauren Blakely
The initial chapters of this book presented a challenging start for me. I found myself bewildered and struggled to immerse myself in the narrative due to its abundance of enigmatic elements and concealed secrets. However, as the story unfolded, my appreciation for it grew immensely.
The bond between Harley and Trey was nothing short of remarkable. Their initial encounter had a touch of humor and serendipity that greatly appealed to me. When they transitioned from mere friendship to embracing their desires for one another, it was portrayed with fervor and sensuality, igniting the pages of the book.
Trey emerged as an exceptional character, embodying qualities such as sweetness, charm, allure, and genuine care. Beneath his outward charm, he battled his own inner demons. As his friendship with Harley blossomed, he grappled with the challenge of sharing his past and the tearful history of his family, leading him to withhold much of it.
Harley, on the other hand, possessed a certain innocence that surprised me, given her previous life experiences. However, this naivety added to her charm and likability. Initially, it appeared as though she might struggle in her journey towards self-discovery, a part of the story I didn’t particularly enjoy. Nonetheless, as time passed, Harley underwent a transformation, evolving into a lovable and resilient character whom I came to adore.
As I reached the conclusion of the book, I felt relieved to discover that “Every Second With You” was already available, as I was eager to delve deeper into Harley and Trey’s story. I hoped to find resolutions for Harley’s personal journey and Trey’s family history, along with addressing the various hints and mysteries left hanging at the end of this installment.
