Every Little Thing (Hart's Boardwalk, #2)Every Little Thing by Samantha Young
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There's something inherently comforting about being back on Hart's Boardwalk.

This series returns with its second book and this time readers are treated to more from the sizzling but unrequited romance between Hart’s Boardwalk’s own princess, Bailey Hartwell, and the businessman she more than likes to clash with, Vaughn Tremaine.

Bailey has been with her boyfriend for 10 years now and despite having the feeling of settling for him rather than truly loving him, she continues her relationship with him, that is until she witnesses the unimaginable. What stuns Bailey more is her indifference to her breakup. Feeling more angry and embarrassed than broken and emotional, Bailey does what she always does and buries herself in her work all whilst being supported by her friends; Jess, Emery and Dahlia, oh and of course Cooper.


Vaughn has a strong protective bond toward Bailey and despite his best intentions to keep her at a distance, he finds himself firmly rooted in protecting her from the ever present danger courtesy of the Devlin family. When he finds her fighting off an attacker, Vaughn’s feelings for Bailey start to get personal and he decides to step in to support her. With Bailey vulnerable, Vaughn’s support gets physical and despite their explosive connection, Vaughn realises that he’s made a huge mistake and poor Bailey is left one again spurned by a man, only this time it really hurts.

With Vaughn and Bailey side stepping around each other, it comes down to their friends to try and make the pair realise that they were born to be together but with these two, they have a battle on their hands. Vaughn has demons that the must overcome in order to accept his feelings for Bailey but first, he must open up to her in order for her to see him for who he truly is.

During Vaughn and Bailey’s story, we also get to see a little more of Emery's mysterious layers being peeled away, especially how she reacts to none other than Jack Devlin. Jack is still the elusive character in this story and appears loyal to no-one but at the same time, there is a strong feeling that he’s planted himself within his family's business in order to protect those he once called his friends.

Dahlia also had a little drama of her own when the ex who appears to have broken her heart turns up in Emery’s book shop and despite him leaving as quickly as he arrived, thanks to Bailey, I’m sure we’ve not heard the last from him.

Ian and Stu Devlin continue to wreak havoc in Hart’s Boardwalk and this time they enlist Vanessa, Bailey’s sister and part-owner of the Inn, into their schemes. Vanessa is the polar opposite of Bailey, she’s driven by money, looks and doesn’t care if she hurts her sister along the way. When she’s witnessed entering a hotel room with Jack Devlin, by Vaughn, Bailey starts to worry even more why exactly her sister has re-emerged in their hometown.

We also get to spend some time with Liam, Vaughn’s father, and I wouldn’t be averse to spending a little bit more time with him either, especially when it looks like he may be coming to Hart’s Boardwalk for an extended visit. Is love on the horizon for him as well?

I really do love this series. It’s beautifully written and provides readers with an escape to a place where dreams come alive and HEAs really do come true.
