Every Little Thing is the second book in Samantha Young’s Hart’s Boardwalk series. When I finished the first book, I was so ecstatic to get a book about Bailey Hartwell and Vaughn Tremaine. I love that enemy to lovers story line and I could tell that their story would turn into an epic love.

“Vaughn Tremaine may have been a pompous, smug, wealthy, arrogant businessman who thought he was better than me, but he could also kind of be honorable when he wanted to be.”

Bailey is a successful inn owner in Hartwell, Delaware, a small and charming boardwalk town. Bailey has always had a comfortable and safe relationship with her boyfriend of ten years, until she walks in on him having sex with a younger woman. And while Bailey is upset, she’s more dismayed that she wasted so muc

Samantha Young is one on my favorite writers. Period!! Since falling irrevocably in love with her Dublin Series, I've read every one of her books and could relate so much to many aspects she presented there. Family, friendship, loyalty are only a few of her trademark elements and for that I will always love her stories.

After saying goodbye to my favorite people from the Dublin Series, we were presented with another beautiful family and environment, this time having another background. If you th

Every Little Thing is the second book in Samantha Young's Hart's Boardwalk series and not a book I thought I was going to survive waiting for. The story follows Bailey, Hartwell's golden girl, as her life takes a change. She's used to being content but she wants more, and that more comes in the form of Vaughn Tremaine. As much as she wants to hate him she just can't seem to stop admiring him from afar. Even when he's an ass towards her in order to push

Better than THE ONE REAL THING (which I found a little generic).

EVERY LITTLE THING wasn't groundbreaking or anything--this is contemporary romance we're dealing with--but it felt less cookie cutter, and more importantly, while Vaughn and Bailey both had Secrets, they weren't secrets of the OTT, drama llama variety that Young frequently favors.

So HOORAY for that.

As far as foundations laid for forthcoming books, I am a little concerned about what the future holds for the one Devlin who

Bailey and Vaughn didn’t start on the right foot. They disliked each other from the first moment and they stayed that away for the couple of years after. Everything changes when Bailey’s 10 years relationship ends and some events put them together. That’s when they realize they may have more in common than they though… and they may not hate each other as much as they also thought.

I was so looking forward to this book. Vaughan and Bailey came crashing together in the last book The Line Real Thing which was brilliant by the way. There sexual tension was crazy. I thought they hated each other after the way Bailey was with him but you could see that there was something behind the arguments the horrible comments. So as you can tell I was dyin for this book.

EVERY LITTLE THING is the second book in the Hart’s Boardwalk series by Samantha Young. I used to enjoy Young’s writing before but I’ve come to realize that may her books are now missing that magical element that ON DUBLIN STREET had. I just can’t get into her characters anymore. She seems to have a thing for unlikeable characters because the opening scene is of the hero who has just finished sleeping with some no-name redhead but is thinking/looking at another woman.

Thank you Berkley Romance for providing an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

On the previous book of The Hart's Boardwalk series (The One Real Thing), there are two characters that stood out for me: Vaughn Tremaine and Bailey Hartwell. These two don't get along well but the tension they created was palpable and it made me more curious so bad.

I loved the first book in this series, The One Real Thing. Not only was it a wonderful story, but I fell in love with the town of Hartwell and its residents and I have been so excited to dive back into this world – this time for the story of Bailey and Vaughn (this book can also easily be read as a standalone).

Bailey Hartwell is all kinds of awesome. She runs her family’s popular, much-loved inn on Hart’s Boardwalk, and has a close circle of friends that she loves dearly. She is bold

I've been looking forward to Bailey and Vaughn's story since The One Real Thing. They have this tangible chemistry wrapped in animosity that was enjoyable to watch. So my expectations were set very high.

For the most part, my expectations were met. I enjoyed their hateful banter and the fact they're obviously hot for each other. But their romance was uneven for me. They spent so much time sniping and hating each other throughout the book that the romance kinda fell by the wayside for m

Bailey and Vaughn’s story was great! I already knew they had amazing chemistry from book 1 and in Every Little Thing it just multiplied. The enemies vibe they had going on gave me some awesome banter which was the perfect build up to the explosion of the two them in bed together. They had a difficult time finally getting their act together and just communicate which is also why I struggled a bit with the story. Them not talking and being apart dragged on for too long.

I went into Every Little Thing rather blind by not reading the first book in the Hart's Boardwalk series. That being said, this can be read as a standalone novel, though I'd have enjoyed getting the entire background of the town and cast of characters. Obviously our two main characters, Bailey and Vaughn are introduced in that first book, or rather their rather tumultuous hatred for each other...

Reading a Samantha Young book is always such a pleasant experience. She has yet to disappoint me, and with Every Little Thing, she was written another strong romance novel with some fantastic characters. I love that I can always count on her to deliver a swoony read.

After meeting Bailey and Vaughn in the first book, I couldn't wait to get to their story. Bailey is so in your face and Vaughn is so reserved that I just knew there would be fireworks and indeed, there were.

Bailey is the sassy redhead who owns the Inn in town, and Vaughn is the sexy hotelier who just moved into town after opening his first hotel in the boardwalk. Bailey and Vaughn didn't get off to a great start when they first met, because Bailey is very protective of keeping the legacy of the town intact, and Vaughn was a thread with his new five star hotel.

4.5 stars!

Me, aften finishing Every Little Thing:

 photo excited5_zps37edc5d5.gif

This was even better than The One Real Thing, imo. Vaughn and Bailey gives us the perfect love/hate story with a whole lotta sexual chemistry added to it. There is a lot of back and forth, which I love, a lot of brooding, antagonising, scheming villains, bitchy sisters, and introductions to future storylines (not too much, but just enough to make me very anxious about Jack/Em and Dahlia/?).

If you enjoyed book 1, I think you'd love book 2!
