RELEASE DAY BLAST: Strong Enough by M. Leighton


Now available: Strong Enough, the first book in the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous trilogy by M. Leighton! A dark and sexy read in the style of the bestselling Bad Boys novels.

StrongEnough-Cover-250wHow would I describe myself? Well, I'm Muse Harper. I'm a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make--abandon everything I've ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.

That's when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn't know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn't all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I'd found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don't know if I'd have done things differently.

Now, I have another choice to make--trust the man that I'm falling in love with and hope that he'll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get. And is he strong enough to let her?

Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she's ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author M. Leighton is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

You know what I love about M. Leighton??
I love how each time I open up one of her books I know I am going to get a brilliantly written story with characters that totally incapacitate me.
In a day with so many novels feeling that they are so similar, M. Leighton offers us captivating, intriguing reads that push the boundaries of romance.

While reading Strong Enough, I dove in and the very first chapter totally hooks you. While Muse is detailing her encounter with this HOT, SEXY fella, you immediately melt in to the pages and know that what is to come is going to be SCORCHIN HOT!!

As the story moves on...we are getting to know Muse and viewing the small insights to whom Jasper is...the romance is slowly building, the embers are on fire, they are being stoked....leading us to fall right along with Muse.
It is not hard when there is a mystery about him yet he is so mesmerizing...It is like his sexiness just oozes out and you are helpless to overcome it...And lets be truthful...you don’t want to...It’s like...JASPER...TAKE ME...NOW!! LOL!!

But, things aren’t always as they seem. Muse thought she hired Jasper to find her dad. But as their journey continues, and Muse begins to get under Jasper’s skin, secrets begin to fall out and lives are ultimately changed.
The truth is revealed and boy, can I say I never expected it. The puzzle pieces fit together and WOW!!! And yeah.. There are some moments when you get some "vibes" but when it was all laid out in front of me?? WHOA!!!

And that leaves me close to the end of this phenomenal tale...Reeling from the secrets that were revealed and the ache from Muse’s heart break. 
I cried...Yes...I actually cried...And I don’t really ever cry with books...But this just shows how talented M. Leighton is. To get so invested in these characters and completely FEEL everything they do.
Each character struggles and battles their own separate demons during their trek. Both Muse and Jasper grow so much throughout their journey; but does it bring them together at the end??
I am not going to spoil anything for you….
I will say M. Leighton does not disappoint and gives the reader everything they want and more in this book.
Truly...5 stars really doesn’t encompass everything that this book gives you. Just saying I loved this book isn’t enough either. I can only tell you that I was pulled in to an amazingly creative world with two dynamic characters that captured my soul. It is a book that left me with a major book hangover and one that still affects me to this day…

I highly recommend that you get this book and experience it all for yourself. Yep...You’ll see what I am talking about and will be just as enthralled as me...
