She’s a shell of the girl she once was…

Mackenzie Delano craves control. After tragedy strikes during her freshman year of college, she compensates for the helplessness she felt by micro-managing every aspect of her life, from her business life to her social life…to her love life. But she wasn’t expecting to cross paths with a mysterious man who seems to invade her every thought.
Tyler Burnham has been living his life with one rule in mind…never fall in love.

When Tyler finds himself falling for Mackenzie, will he be able push his feelings aside and recover the information he needs? Or will he put the mission and their lives at risk to follow his heart?
Chasing The Dragon is the first installment of a two part series of deception and betrayal where nothing is as it seems.
***Note – Chasing The Dragon is the first book in a two-book duet and is a spin-off of T.K. Leigh’s USA Today Best Selling Beautiful Mess series. It is not necessary to have read that series in order to read this duet, but it will contain a mild spoiler from the third book in the Beautiful Mess series, Gorgeous Chaos.***
What can I say… BUT OMG! The anticipation I had for this one definitely paid off! I have loved all of T.k. Leigh’s books so far, but I do believe this is her BEST one yet! Tyler Burnham.. We only got to see pieces of him in her Beautiful Mess series and this book gives you a deeper feel of the younger Burnham. While his older brother Alex had stolen a piece of my heart, Tyler dug his way in and ALMOST pushed Alex out.. Almost.. The fire that ignites between Mackenzie and Tyler is mesmerizing to say the least. I feel she is the Yin to his Yang and the relationship that unfolds between them will leave you breathless. Tyler is definitely BBF material, strong yet gentle, just remember I licked him first :D. The secondary characters bring some laughter and tears and help propel the story in different directions, and she will keep you guessing. Get ready for the emotions to roll off of you. There is a bit of a cliffie at the end, which being a two book duet I figured there would be. All that being said I could not put it down and cannot wait to see how the story plays out in the continuation Slaying the Dragon.
T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is the USA Today Best Selling author of the Beautiful Mess series. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn’t until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre.
When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
