Release Blitz & Review - Every Little Thing by Samantha Young

Every Little Thing ( Hart's Boardwalk #2 )
by Samantha Young

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.


I still feel that the Hart’s Boardwalk series doesn’t have the same magic as Samantha Young’s other series. These are more cookie cutter traditional romances. That being said I did enjoy Every Little Thing a lot more than book one in the series.

Bailey and Vaughn are enemies. They antagonize each other at every turn. Vaughn is doing it to fight off his attraction to Bailey. He admires Bailey and with each passing day the attraction grows but his frustration comes out in biting put downs. Bailey gives it right back to him but deep down his words hurt her.

Bailey is in a dead end relationship that is she is in denial over. She is also in denial when it comes to her attraction to Vaughn. To be fair it isn’t hard to deny it when he is always pushing her buttons and she gets angry with him. Bailey soon finds herself a single woman again and dealing with a threat to her inn. After Vaughn comes to her rescue and they both stop denying each other they give in to their attraction.

Vaughn quickly pushes Bailey away again because he is emotionally damaged. His rejection after what they shared makes Bailey doubt herself and she retreats into herself. Vaughn finally has to own up to his demons so that he can make something real with Bailey.

I really enjoyed Every Little Thing. It had more depth and I loved Bailey and Vaughn’s personalities. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I am really intrigued by sweet and shy Emery. I am really hoping we get her story next.
