You seriously don't want to miss MMA-champion-turned-Hollywood-superstar Rogan. Hotness!
Get Tough Enough
From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.
He’s a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart?
There was a time when I had everything–a wonderful family, a bright future. Love. But all that was taken away in a single night, torn from me like flesh from bone. Since then, I’ve hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. I’m comfortable in the shadows, where no one can see my scars.
Kiefer Rogan literally took my breath away the moment I met him. MMA champion-turned-actor, notorious playboy, charming to a fault—he’s everything I vowed to avoid.
But he just wouldn’t stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I should’ve tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldn’t have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that they’re usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most.
I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too.
Get Tough Enough
Get Strong Enough, the first book in the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series
Oh how I love my fighters! It can totally be just my own mind, but I love how I conjure up the vivid details of how these men are as I am guided, not so gently sometimes, by the author’s words as I put specific characteristics to them. Forget about when one of my favorite authors decides to write a fighter and M. Leighton is such. I can easily get lost in her words right from the jump, and book 2 of The Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series, I am in love with the words, but not just because Rogan is a fighter. I love this book for the entirety of possibility.
Tough Enough continues the underlying story of the Special Forces unit Rogan belongs too, trying to find the answers needed as to whom and where the deceptions are lying while simultaneously telling the tale of Rogan and Katie. Brought together by force but I say fate has a hand in all this, Katie is movie set makeup artist hiding in a rural small town where the uber sexy and high profile MMA fighter Rogan is placed for a few weeks to expand his hand in a career adventure. In a way Rogan is hiding too. Hiding who he really is and hiding his scars. Deep rooted scars that run decades deep while his soul recognizes another whom also has scars not healed.
In a modern day twist of Beauty and the Beast, where it is hard to differentiate just who the beauty and who the beast is, we are taken on an adventure set in the town of Enchantment where the real world is miles away. We watch how Rogan and Katie both grow and both find their own strength individually (at times cohesively). M. Leighton loves to titillate us and tease us readers giving us a possibility of that ever- after fairy tale that we all want to see happen. Rogan is so crazy sexy that you can’t help fall in love with him and OH MY GAWD! Katie! She has taken the reigns by becoming my favorite heroine. Watch as she overcomes and finds being powerful suits her better than being broken. So stop reading this review and start reading Tough Enough now!! I can’t wait for you all to be swooned and fall into a crafted world that’s smart and funny, tragic and heartfelt; a world that is exclusively from M. Leighton.
