This was a fun MM romance. An American in London, hot English bartender, stuff about tea, more British vs American whatnots, etc it’s all there! I like how the world these characters exist in is devoid of homophobia. Of course, homophobia is a very real threat in our world but to read about two people who are attracted to one another and not having to give a shit about what the rest of humanity believes is appropriate is a nice change of scenery!

Mixed emotions on this one. Very enjoyable to read. A bit slow and predictable at times

Happily, Ever After
Embarking on my literary quest in search of the perfect read has been an exciting journey. This year, I've taken pride in my commitment to provide honest one and two-star reviews when a book doesn't quite resonate with me. While I'm pleased to have completed this series, I must admit that the overall experience falls into the three-star category. Nevertheless, with a few more months left in the year, I remain optimistic about discovering some five-star gems.

Having said that, " Every Second with You " delivered precisely the ending I had hoped for in this story. Although I found satisfaction in the conclusion of "The Thrill of It," I harbored a deeper desire for Trey and Harley's growth as individuals and as a couple. The conclusion couldn't have been more fitting, even though the journey was far from easy.

In this book, Lauren Blakely continued to weave a tapestry of highs and lows, taking readers on an emotional rollercoaster. There were moments when worry crept in, and I even entertained the thought of reaching through my Kindle to shake a character or two. However, unlike my apprehension during the first installment, I knew this time that Trey and Harley were destined for a happy ending. This knowledge made the moments of tears and frustration more bearable. And trust me, there were quite a few such moments. I admired Lauren's willingness to confront challenging themes head-on, which added depth to the narrative.

Getting Warmer

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.
