Vicky’s Review of A Beautiful Mess By: T.K. Leigh


About the Book:


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 her 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.

What I Thought:

I really enjoyed this book. In A Beautiful Mess we meet Olivia Adler & Alexander Burnham( or as I like to call him Mr. B). They were best friend’s growing up until one fateful day when everything changes.. Imagine going from having everything to having it all  ripped  away in a matter of minutes no family, no best friend, nothing. It’s no wonder Olivia has intimacy issues~ Enter Keira who is Olivia’s lil bit quirky and fun loving bestie.. Keira helps keep Olivia grounded ,well… tries to anyways. I really enjoyed their interaction with one another. There are also a few other interesting character’s to meet I am hoping in the next book to learn a little more about Alexander’s family. Speaking of Alexander Mr. “People only call me Mr. Burnham in the bedroom…” Love HIM. And although he is a little over protective (completely understandable) I think there is enough tenderness, Alot of sexiness, and some spunk to make him a definite book boyfriend to keep an eye on.  Will Olivia and Mr.B learn how to move past all their issues and learn how to love with-out fear?  I definitely would recommend this book, even though it is book one in a three part series. T.K. Leigh did a wonderful job, made sure there was enough romance, mystery, drama, and suspense that left  me wanting MORE.. And I can’t wait for more of Olivia & Alexander’s story in A Tragic Wreck Coming Jan. 27th 2014
