Georgette's Review of The Thrill of It by Lauren Blakely

The thrill of it
Lauren blakely
Nov 21, 2013


Synopsis:

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.

Trey...

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 ofit.

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

Georgette’s Review:
This story of Harley and Trey from Lauren Blakely is not the normal story you’ve been looking for.
It’s dark, intense and in times such a mindfuck.  Yes, that’s what I said.
To watch the growth of these characters is simply amazing!
Harley’s mother was never really good to her but Harley doesn’t see that…not until she learns from Trey how to open her eyes.  The life she’s led so far at such a tender young age is a life that no girl should ever lead.
The dynamic within this story and these characters is amazing! Lauren Blakely has managed to blow our minds yet again.
I gave this book 4.5 stars! I definitely recommend you read it…the emotions you will go through in this book will blow your mind!
There’s so much more I can tell you but I’d prefer you read it and let us know if you enjoyed as much as we did!!
I cannot wait for the next book!! Hurry Lauren, we need it!
