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 turn Olivia's world upside-down. 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.

A Beautiful Mess
November 30th, 2015
Title is appropriate. Bytimes one of the most poignant stories I have ever read about surviving tragedy to find solace in a true, devoted, timeless love and then out of nowhere being hit with scenes of domination, submission and bondage more in keeping with 50 Shades of Grey which, while fine and relatively tasteful, added nothing to the storyline or plot, and in actual fact seemed to be the least desirable and most damaging type of relationship for our already fragile heroine who really deserved a happy ever after with a Prince Charming who cherished her not fought her to be in control. It was like reading two parallel universe books simultaneously and Ms. Leigh would have done better to pick a genre and stick with it for a better read. That being said, it had a good plot and I would likely read the sequel for that reason and just skip the senseless sex scenes but I wouldn't buy it. A missd opportunity for a really good read.

This is a second chance story for Olivia and Alexander, except Olivia doesn't remember him. Alexander finally gets the answers he needs to confirm Olivia is his Olivia from so many years ago. He keeps this a secret and we know keeping secrets is not good. Looking forward to seeing what happens next. :)

You can't Expect anyone to give a review to an unfurnished Book!!! I am seriously angry. What a waste of time!!!! So, it's a trilogy. Big deal. That's no excuse to not to finish the first book. I will not waste my time again with an author who can't complete one book!!!

This book made me want more, I couldn't put it down I just had to keep reading! T.K. Leigh has done a great job or portraying the characters and really letting you see who they were. The storyline was absolutely amazing very suspenseful all the way through. I had a bit of a love hate relationship for Olivia, it was a little frustrating when she would turn Alexander away. But we all know books have to have a few hiccups!
