Review + #Giveaway: The Thrill of It by Lauren Blakely

A new adult story of Love. Sex. Addiction. Blackmail. And Power...

Some say love can be an addiction. Others say it's the thing that makes life worth living. Let me tell you everything I know about love...Love isn't patient, love isn't kind. Love is a game, a chase. A thrill. Love is wild and war-like, and every man and woman must fight for themselves. At least that's how it was for me. A high-priced virgin call girl by the time I started college, I was addicted to love and to sex. Even though I've never had either. I controlled love, played it, and held the world in the palm of my hands. Then I fell down from those highs, and I'm being blackmailed for all my mistakes, forced to keep secrets from everyone, except the only guy I don't regret.


With all the other women, I knew what they were. They were temporary. They were pills, they were bottles, they took away all the pain, and numbed the awful memories that wore down my ragged, wasted heart. Until I met Harley. She's the only girl I ever missed when she walked away. But now she's back in my life, every day, and there are no guarantees for us, especially since I don't know how to tell her my secrets. What happened to my family. All I know is she's the closest I've ever come to something real, and I want to feel every second of it.

How can you love with no regrets when regret is all you know?

This book hooked me from the very first word and didn’t let go until the last. I could not put it down for a second. It was an amazing, emotional rollercoaster ride; a dark and gritty love story of two broken souls who find acceptance and understanding in a critical world.

The sexual tension in this book is off the charts. But what I really loved about this story was how Harley and Trey’s relationship developed and grew from friendship (not taking into account their first encounter) and their feelings for one another only intensified until neither could deny just how crazy they were about each other. There was a moment when they both feared the love that was blossoming because it was so pure, so true, and nothing like either of them had ever experienced. It also left them both open and vulnerable. Harley no longer had the control she craved, and Trey was in uncharted waters, losing himself to love instead of lust.

This book tore me apart, but at the same time warmed me to my core. I cared deeply for both of these gorgeous people, and Kristen was also such a fantastic friend to Harley that I adored her too; strangely enough, even Cam found a way into my heart. But there was absolutely no room for Harley’s mother. At least Cam never hid his true nature, but Barb was unforgiveable.

And as for that ending, I need the next book NOW!!!
