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?
What I thought
FINALLY I get to review this book!!
I am so privileged to be part of the Street Team for the amazingly talented Lauren Blakely. Therefor I am lucky enough to have been able to read this a few weeks ago. The unfortunate part is that I have had to sit on it for this long.
I was told before I read it that this book was different. This caused my stomach to drop a little. I mean if its not broken don’t fix it – right?
No, not always.
While The Thrill of It is most definitely different from Lauren’s other books. Its dark, even twisted in place. It has characters that you will no doubt fall in love with and then there are characters that you are going to down right hate. What I find amusing about this book is a particular debate within the street team about one particular character. Cam. You will learn all about him. Personally I hate him. Others adore him. This is why I love reading. It shows how people take different elements of a story and it resonates with them in a different way.
Harley herself being a high priced teenage call girl is intriguing, but to be a virgin while doing it is unreal. How the hell does she manage that? You want to read it now don’t you.
Then we have Trey. The tattoo artist. Addicted to sex. Attracted to Harely. The one girl he can’t have sex with.
They both have their secrets though and even if they want to throw caution to the wind its impossible while they can’t be honest to each other about who they really are.
I am not telling you any more about this book. You have to buy it an read it. I will tell you though that its amazing. It brought out so many emotions in me. It made me happy and it made me sad. And oh my good God did it frustrate me. It also shockingly made me go out and get a tattoo!
And also let me tell you this. This book is all Lauren Blakely, only with added elements! Hot added elements.
