*fans self* I'm still kind of recovering from this one...
Bailey and Vaughn fought through the first book in this
series and they fight through the first half of this one
too. Here are two folks who have built their lives just
how they like it and think the other person will destroy
the carefully built castles of sand. Of course, we
readers know better, and their happily ever after is as
satisfying as you would hope.
This is Young's second series - the first set in Scotland
- and it's settling into itself wonderfully. Her
speciality is giant familial friend circles and that
phenomenon that happens when you're a single adult when
your friends become your whole life. I adore getting to
know every one, the foreshadowing that happens so often
and then the follow-ups to couples that follow. We get
more time here with the couple from the first book and
some serious breadcrumbs were laid for future
If you like contemporary romances, Young is an author you
should know, especially if you like them grounded in
reality... with the exception of the sex, which is 100%
delightful and raucous fantasy fulfillment. Bailey and
Vaughn's athletic and adventurous turns are no exception.
I adored EVERY LITTLE THING, clearly, and totally recommend it.

his passion for her has grown, his antagonism toward her
worsened. Every little thing Bailey does seduces him. But
Vaughn’s painful emotional past makes him walk away in
fear he will
hurt her, it opens an old wound in Bailey, and she
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
around once in a lifetime….
