The Thrill of It Review

 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?

Is it just me or are author's kicking ass at writing awesomeness?! I hope to be half of what the author's I've read lately are. Seriously, I'm so caught up in how amazing they are that I've neglected attempting anything! That's not entirely true, but I do find myself lost more in reading than writing lately and one of the books that captured my attention is no doubt The Thrill of it by Lauren Blakely. But like I said before there are some authors who are amazing no matter what they write and she is definitely one of them. Normally I would have posted my review with Christina on our Crazy Book Chicks Naughty & Nice blog for the blog tour, but... my original review was lost! :( Seriously I cried so I apologize if this review totally sucks, but I wanted to post something even if its tiny to show the appreciation to the author for her fabulous book! So enjoy and if you hate it SORRY!

I totally and completely fell in love with Harley. I hate her mother though. Cannot stand her and blame her for how Harley turns out at the beginning. She's stronger than her mother though and its a quality I admire. Its not like our typical girls we read were the knight in shinning armor comes and saves the day, its the complete opposite in fact. Harley walks into a tattoo parlor to get this tattoo to remind her of her mother and what she's overcoming when she meets Trey. Trey's the sexy tattoo artists. The one that has your insides swooning and your mind running. Yup that's hottie Trey and boy do I love him. I love the boys with issues and Trey has his fair share of baggage of the cougar variety. We all cope in different ways, the ironic copying mechanism is what brings these two together after a night that was supposed to end their past.

But like they say the past doesn't always stay in the past. They form a bond, but both struggle to remain on the friendship line. A line that inevitable blurs. A line that pushes Harley back to her pimp Cam. Normally I would hate any form of pimp, but I have to say Lauren Blakely has me liking Cam in his weirdness. He's not the 'normal' pimp we're used to seeing portrayed. Once you belong to one you always do, Cam isn't like that and I love that about him. Harley and Trey have a long road ahead of them, but together they can conquer it all. Just to let you all know there will be another book so don't be surprised with the ending even though I am every time I read this book... yes I've read it a few times, okay maybe more than a few but what can I say other than I love it! SO go grab this book if you haven't already!
