Everything for Us by M. Leighton

First....HAPPY RELEASE DAY Michelle Leighton!!!!! Everything for Us is the third book in the Bad Boys Series and with today being the book birthday...there is a huge blast happening too!!
If you will head here then you can get in on the FANTASTIC giveaway going on with it...
Sooo...on to my review...

When it comes to passion this hot, it’s all or nothing. 

Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.

An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.

With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.

M. Leighton is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Wild Ones and The Bad Boys romance trilogies.  She is a native of Ohio, relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she lets her mind wander to 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.

Oh wow!! OHHHHH WOW!!!! 
I think it is no secret that when it comes to M. Leighton, that I completely melt in to her books.  She is absolutely one of my ALL TIME favorite authors.  Everything that she writes blows me away and leaves me craving for so much more.  Literally...I can't tell you how many times I wipe drool from my mouth because I am salivating...waiting for that next book to release...
So now I am able to get my fix...Book 3 of the Bad Boys series, Everything for Us, is out and since I was able to get an ARC, I took my time reading and savoring every single page that was in front of me.  Feeling that calm wash over me as those jitters ease from my withdrawals while waiting on one of M. Leighton's books.
And thank goodness I was able to relish Everything for Us, because it does not disappoint.  As we enter back in to the world of Bad Boys series, we are still wrapped up in the story that captured us all from the beginning.  The only difference is that instead of us following Cash and Olivia, we are now immersed in the life of Marissa.  I have to say that when I knew it was about her, I was skeptical on whether I would enjoy reading from her POV.  After meeting her in Down to You, she is somewhat of a nasty character, you know, one you could really care less about.  But, this just shows how fabulous M. Leighton is.  She took someone like Marissa and completely transformed her in my eyes.  She grows so much throughout this book and to say the least, I was so proud of her.  The woman she became...the strength she exuded by the end of the book was staggering.  You connect with her on so many levels and with all that happened to her you find yourself beaming with who she is by the end...
Ok...so I know that Marissa is not who you really want to hear about...I mean...we are talking about M. Leighton here....HOT GUYS are a specialty in her books...and Everything for Us is no different.  
With dualing POVs between Marissa and NASH...we really get to see sooooo much of this guy.  I loooooved it!!!!
Being in Nash's head was so different.  I mean, with Down to You and Up to Me, we really get to know Cash.  Now, here we are and getting to know Nash, who's life has been hard, leaving him bitter and almost emotionless.  The only thing he has held on to all these years is his anger.  It fueled everything for him.  But the more time he spent in Atlanta and with a special lady, Marissa, the more he became unraveled.  Seeing him crack and learn to face his demons gave me a renewed respect for him.
It wasn't an easy road for him and Marissa.  The chemistry between these two was EXPLOSIVE, ELECTRIC, FIERY!!! I mean....WHEW....when these two ended up together...HAWT!!!! There is one scene that keeps rolling through my head that....OMG...I am sweating thinking about it right now...*fans self*
But, just because they were amazing in that department...their relationship was non-existent.  No matter how honest or open they were, there was still so much hidden and this ultimately left them with so many questions unanswered.  
Do they make it together? Do they allow their walls to come down?
Well, I will tell you this...
Everything for Us gives you, the reader, everything you need in a FANTASTIC book.  Dynamic characters within a stimulating story-line providing you with a passionate, suspenseful tale, captivating you from start to finish.  
Definitely one of my favorite reads of the year so far!!!
