Every Second With You = Sex. Love. Addiction. Heartache. Pain. And Hope.

In the sequel to the bestselling THE THRILL OF IT, Harley and Trey face new challenges that will make battling blackmail, sex addiction, and a virgin call girl past look easy…

I used to think love was a lie. Now I know it’s real, powerful, and I don’t want to lose it…But my future scares me, and there’s no way this can be happening, especially since I’ve finally broken free from all the people who wanted pieces of me. I don’t even know how to start over, but I have to find a way. So when I discover what my mother’s been keeping from me, it doesn’t make me hate her. It gives me hope for a new life, outside of New York. But the ties that bind me to this city are so strong, sometimes they are chains. If only I could leave with…


I will do anything for her. She owns me, heart, mind and body. But when Harley tells me this, I am rocked to the core, and terrified of what happens next. Especially when this time it’s not her past that chases me, it’s someone from my own. And that someone is messing with my head when I’m trying to be strong for Harley. But all I really want is to escape with the girl I love…For the rest of our lives.

How can you move forward when the past keeps chasing you?

We asked Lauren to name her dreamcast for Every Second With You and this is what she came up with!

My dream cast for Every Second With You is pretty similar to my dreamcast for The Thrill of It! No surprise there!

And to be honest, I’ve never really imagined any big stars or well-known names for the two leads. For Harley, because is 20, blond and beautiful, jaded and innocent, I could see Amber Heard playing her -- and this shot reminds me of Harley. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1720028/

The Australian actor Dan Ewing has the right look for Trey - tough, but vulnerable, sweet but sexy. But I also have found some gorgeous tattooed models that simply have the right look too. (refer to Pinterest pics)

Then, there’s Cam, the pimp with the heart of gold and he is definitely Vince Vaughn! I had Vince Vaughn and the way he talks in Swingers in mind as I wrote Cam. T Jeremy Piven is a close second.

Kristen is in EVERY SECOND WITH YOU, and she’s mused by Anna Kendrick, who has the right wit for the role. Trey’s shrink, Michele Milo, is Emily Blunt for sure -- sharp, cool, edgy.

And then Debbie -- a new character -- could be played by Helen Hunt, though perhaps she’s a few years older than Helen.
