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?
I am a HUGE fan of Lauren Blakely and when I got the chance to read the ARC of The Thrill of It, I was so excited! This book was so unlike her other novels, but in a nice way. It is darker, edgier, and still has that great “Steam” that her novels are known for. The characters (Trey & Harley) were damaged and had to find themselves before they could come together. The storyline was so different and refreshing. I loved every single moment of the book and could not put it down. I highly recommend! I am so excited that this is a series because I cannot get enough! The series is called “No Regrets” and the next book is Every Second With You (No Regrets #2 – expected March 2014) and there is also a novella The Start of Us (No Regrets #0.5) coming out sometime soon.
