The quiet town of Hartwell is 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 realise 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 . . .
Cover: A fairly simple cover.  I like that it matches the first one,

I love Samantha Young's books, and after reading the first book in the Hart's Boardwalk series, I couldn't wait for the second, Every Little Thing to be released.   We met Bailey and Vaughn and book 1 and even then the sparks between them flew off the page...almost making it catch fire.  I couldn't wait for their story.
And I wasn't disappointed. At all.
Their witty back and forth banter clearly showed their attraction to each other, even though neither wants to admit it.
When they finally come together, it's explosive.
And I was rooting for them all the way.
A must read for romance fans, but I would recommend picking up book 1 first- I think you'll get more out of it that way.
A 5/5 star read, without a doubt and I can't wait for the next book in this series, some interesting seeds have been planted for the next book.
