What an intensely emotional and gripping story. Who would have guessed by looking at the cover. I knew very little before starting this book and became immediately hooked in the first chapter. I love romantic suspense stories especially ones that become so addicting you can't stop. I wasn't prepared for the extreme emotion aspect which really pulls at your heart strings. I also wasn't prepared for the ending. No HEA or HFN here people. This is 100% true drama. I like Alexander, although he is dense, and I think having all that money has dulled his ability to put others before him, but I haven't given up on him just yet, although by the sneak peek at the next book, he's on my shit list. Olivia, God bless her, is kept clueless throughout this book and its awful to read it. Give the girl some closure or something. She wants to get rid of her emotional baggage but everyone around her just keeps her in the dark which is frustrating. This would have been a 5 star for me, but I was not happy with no real questions or solutions being answered. I get in a series you can't end with everything being closed but at least something. I have hopes for book two that we will learn something about who and why people are after her. Fantastic exciting read...enjoy!
What happens when you lose everyone that promised they would always be there for you? How can you protect the few pieces of your shattered heart that remain?
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.
T. K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a producer / attorney by trade. Born and raised in New England, she now lives in Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). 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’s run over 15 fulls and too many halfs to count), or trying to convince her husband that it’s time to give yoga another try. Unlike Olivia, the main character from her debut novel, "A Beautiful Mess," she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
