How can you continue living when you’re living a lie? How can you convince your body to stop feeling, your soul to stop caring, and your heart to stop beating?
Haunted by her past, Olivia Adler flees Boston for a beach in Florida, leaving everyone behind, trying to shut the world out. Remaining a relative recluse in her self-imposed prison, she tries to turn everything off, wanting to feel nothing. But a new acquaintance won’t let that happen. After being away from Alexander for a month, his voice constantly ringing in her head, reminding her that her inability to confront her demons will not only destroy her, but also him, can she really be expected to want to feel again when it brings nothing but pain?
Back in Boston, everywhere he turns, Alexander Burnham is reminded of Olivia… His Olivia… He tries to dull the ache left in his heart the only way he knows how… in the bed of a beautiful woman. But Alexander isn’t about to lose his Olivia. After a clue comes to light regarding Olivia’s whereabouts, can he convince her to return to Boston with him? When a force that has laid dormant for months resurfaces, can Alexander still protect her from the unknown danger? And when Alexander comes face to face with a shadow of both his and Olivia’s past, will he be able to tell her the secret that is threatening to tear them apart?
A Tragic Wreck is the continuation of T.K. Leigh’s heart-breaking Beautiful Mess series.
When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
Wendy's 4 Bare Naked star Review
A Tragic Wreck is the continuation of Alexander and Olivia's tumultuous love story by T.K. Leigh.
There was more than one occasion that I wanted to bang their bloody heads together, the emotions that this book stirred up inside me, I was furious, sad, confused and happy and not necessarily in equal quantities.
Nearly every review I have read talks about this book being an emotional rollercoaster and to describe what Alex and Olivia have been through, and are going through as such really doesn’t describe sufficiently the ups and downs this couple continue to battle in life, a Tsunami may be a more suitable description.
I don’t do spoilers and I’m finding it hard to express just what feelings T.K. Leigh evoked in me when I read A Tragic Wreck.
When I read A Beautiful Mess I wrote at the time:
“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!”
So ok she didn’t make me get on my knees and beg for book 2 but I really thought it was going to be a tough job for her to raise all those feelings in me again, well hats off once more to you Ms Leigh because not only did you once again do all those things, you did much more with this book and now I have to wait for book 3, god dammit women, can you show me no mercy here.
Brilliant book, brilliant series, take the time to savour Alex and Olivia’s very beautiful, tragic, messy story through life.
