“Sadly, I didn’t enjoy this book.”
~ Under the Covers

EVERY LITTLE THING is the second book in the Hart’s Boardwalk series by Samantha Young. I used to enjoy Young’s writing before but I’ve come to realize that may her books are now missing that magical element that ON DUBLIN STREET had. I just can’t get into her characters anymore. She seems to have a thing for unlikeable characters because the opening scene is of the hero who has just finished sleeping with some no-name redhead but is thinking/looking at another woman. He then promptly goes back to the woman in his bed and tells her “it’s time to leave.” Ugh. Now unattractive.

I persisted though, hoping that there would be so redeeming quality about Vaughn. When he encounters the heroine for the first time, he picks up her lingerie and teases her about it. Then he says something rude that she obviously is offended by. The next scene is from his POV where he thinks about apologizing but doesn’t. As you can tell, I’m over asshole heroes. I don’t like them in real life and I don’t like them in my books. Sadly, this isn’t the first hero that Young had written like this and I didn’t like that book either. So if this is something that will continue in the series, I’m out. Sorry but I just can’t deal.

Another thing that really annoyed me is the fact that all the hero’s POVs are written in third person while the heroine’s is in first. I know this author isn’t the first person to do this, but while other people have pulled it off, I just couldn’t get on board with it. It makes Bailey’s POVs seem so juvenile in comparison like she is a small child while Vaughn is much more mature and sophisticated.

Sadly, I didn’t enjoy this book. The backdrop of the beach would’ve been nice if it actually had more significance in the book. So I don’t think I will be continuing on with this series or this author.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Are the On Dublin Street books even worth reading then? Sounds like the author is another of many one-trick-ponies; one good series and that’s about it.

I enjoyed one and two of the series. But after that I thought it kind of lost it’s steam.

I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy this one. I picked it up a few months ago, and it’s still on my currently reading shelf. I haven’t had the urge to pick it up again. Samantha Young created such magic with On Dublin Street, but she hasn’t, IMO, been able to capture it again. That makes me so sad. But I am so desperate for her to find it again, that I am having issues giving her up!

Great review.
