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 received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

 

Ever since I read about Bailey and Vaughn in The One Real Thing, I had been highly anticipating their book! My exact words were “I’m so looking forward to the next novel in this series. I won’t think twice about picking it up since it will have one of the couples that I fell so hard for in this first book! That book will be something else and I can’t wait for it!” I already had a feeling Every Little Thing was going to be great and it totally was!

“You’re looking a little stressed there, Bailey. Anything I can do to help?”
“Sterilization,” I quipped.
“Huh?”
“My point exactly. Good-bye.” I wiggled my fingers at them, gesturing them to move along.

After finding her boyfriend of 10 years cheating on her, Bailey isn’t sure how to be a 34-year-old single woman. Despite that, she moves on with the help of her friends and her independence. Unfortunately, her sights and heart are set on Vaughn Tremaine, someone she knows she should stay away from. Years ago, someone like him broke her heart and she can’t risk that type of heartbreak again. Vaughn is a very rich businessman who had no plans in staying at Hartwell, but he fell in love with the small town and so he decided to stay. Somehow, Vaughn and Bailey started off on the wrong foot and now, all they do is banter and insult each other. It wasn’t until Bailey was in danger and Vaughn saved her that their insults lowered and the chemistry grew even more.

The man I thought I might have been waiting for my whole life.
All this time he’d been standing right in front of me, wearing a suit and a sexy-ass smirk.

I loved Bailey even more in this book. She’s fierce, strong, independent, caring, loving, and doesn’t let anybody walk over her. Any situation thrown her away, she handles it with grace and with a side of badass. She’s definitely the only woman able to tame Vaughn and get him out of his commitment phobia. Because of his family, Vaughn is scared of commitment. But he really wants Bailey and after a few realizations, he’s determined to win Bailey and show her he won’t leave. Seeing as Bailey and Vaughn hate each other, their romance went from enemies to lovers in a delicious slow burn pace that amped up the chemistry they had.

Vaughn couldn’t remember a time when he’d been so lost in a woman. He felt this unsettling hum beneath his skin. This urgency. This desperation to claim Bailey Hartwell as his own like he really was a prehistoric caveman.

Every Little Thing was everything I hoped for and more. All the chemistry, hate, love, small-town, characters, and storyline were on point! Now, I’m really hoping the next book follows Emery and Jack. They need a book ASAP!!

  • This sounds so good. And I just love that first quote! LOL 😀

  • I really liked the way that Young wrote the angst level in this book, it wasn’t too much or too little, it just felt right for these two. I can’t wait to see Jack’s story though.

  • You know what? I’m currently reading it now and loving it so far. 😀
    Awesome review! 😀

  • Aw sounds like a sweet romance. 🙂 Great review. ~Aleen

  • I’m SO glad this book did not disappoint! It sucks when the first book is so good and then the next book is not as fantastic. That is terrible that her boyfriend of ten years cheated on her! Ten years! I can’t even imagine. I’m okay with rich businessmen! And a little banter too! How angsty is this book? I highly dislike angst and drama, but I don’t mind it when it’s well-written and it makes sense in the story. I hope all of those supporting characters get books!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Genesis. =)

    • This book is so much better than the first! You should totally get it! The amount of angst is just right. It’s not a lot but it’s still there at times.

  • I really loved Bailey & Vaughn too and loved the progression of their romance. Their chemistry was super steamy just the way I like it. OMG I need Emery & Jack’s book ASAP. I asked the author, and she responded to me, but didn’t answer the question. Looks like she’s keeping it mum!
