Review for "A Beautiful Mess" by T.K. Leigh (review by Mystic Lover)

A Beautiful Mess
by T.K. Leigh


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.

Recommended for ages 18 and up due to sexual situations, language, and mild violence.
My Review:
5 star rating!!
*I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

I've been on an emotional rollercoaster ever since picking up this book. The author draws you into the story with likeable characters. Then she helps you dig your claws into the book by adding a bit of mystery and action. Then just for fun she adds super steamy sex! The characters are strong, the story somewhat fast paced and the plot keeps you guessing. Olivia and Alexander's connection is palpable. You can feel the emotions that pass between them. It's an epic love story but it's also so much more! It's a mystery...something you desperately need to figure out. You don't realize how many pages or chapters you've devoured so quickly. I found it really hard to put this book down, foregoing household chores to sneak in a few more pages. The ending had me crying; out of frustration because it's a cliffhanger and for Alexander & Olivia. Will they ever be together? Will Olivia finally find out why she can't remember anything about her past? Will Alexander finally fess up and tell Olivia all he knows? I don't know...but I desperately NEED to know. The next book in this series can not come out fast enough! If you haven't read this book yet, put it on your "To-be-read" list! You won't be disappointed. I really enjoyed it!
