Hartwell, Delaware—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 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 already loved the dynamic between Vaughn and Bailey in The One Real Thing, so I was very happy they got their own story with Every Little thing. A classic hate to love story, though there never was any real hate. Quite the opposite actually, as Vaughn fell for Bailey the first time they met. Except she was in a relationship with another man, and Vaughn has some issues to let women in.
The constant bickering is a form of foreplay, and oh so entertaining to read. When Bailey becomes a free woman again, the temptation becomes too much. It’s so easy for Vaughn to scare her away, though slowly Bailey sees what he’s hiding. He’s not as evil as he wants her to believe, quite the opposite. Vaughn is charming, and helpful to anyone but Bailey.
When things heat up between them, that’s when it gets really interesting. It’s a lot of push, and pull with some extremely hot scenes, charming men, and spirited women. Every Little Thing is everything I wanted it to be for Vaughn and Bailey. You’ll root for this couple from the first page, and they’ll leave you with a happy heart.
