Beautiful Mess by T.K. Leigh
Olivia Adler is a woman with a troubled past. After losing her parents at the young age of six and being raised by an uncle who she lost years later, she refuses to get attached to anyone, including friends. For the past decade, she has been able to remain unattached to any man, too worried about losing someone to get too close. Until Alexander Burnham walks into her life one night and changes everything. But he has issues of his own. And he’s keeping a secret that could change everything. Will Olivia let Alexander in enough for him to get close and protect her from a force threatening her very existence, or will she push him away, scared of letting Alexander in, in order to protect her heart?
A Beautiful Mess is the first installment of a three part series sure to captivate the heart with a story of secrets, courage, and love.
Now I am not a lover of cliff hangers, I tend to wait until a whole series is available before I head in, but on this occasion I promised to review for a blog tour and I always keep my word.
This is T.K. Leigh’s debut novel and it’s a corker! Alexander & Olivia were off the charts hot, although it was refreshing that Ms Leigh did not have them jumping each other’s bones by page 2.
There are secrets and intrigue that ripples dangerously throughout and keeps you hooked and wanting more, Now!
Alex is the perfect mix of alpha male with a sensitive side, but who is clearly carrying a whole load of baggage. Quite frankly he could bring all the baggage he wanted with him and I’d help him stow it away!
Olivia, hmmm, did I like her? Kinda. I wanted to hug her and knock some sense in to her throughout the book. Stop damn well running you silly girl. Arrgghhh.
So hats off to Ms Leigh for frustrating the hell out of me, steaming up my glasses, keeping me hooked and leaving me quite prepared to get down on my knees and beg for more. Right now lady!
