Review ~~ Tough Enough by M. Leighton
Tough Enough (Tall, Dark, and Dangerous #2)
From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.
He’s a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart?
There was a time when I had everything–a wonderful family, a bright future. Love. But all that was taken away in a single night, torn from me like flesh from bone. Since then, I’ve hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. I’m comfortable in the shadows, where no one can see my scars.
Kiefer Rogan literally took my breath away the moment I met him. MMA champion-turned-actor, notorious playboy, charming to a fault—he’s everything I vowed to avoid.
But he just wouldn’t stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I should’ve tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldn’t have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that they’re usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most.
I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too.
Wow! What a great book. Rogan has just made my heart skip a beat.
But even before that, the prologue SUCKED ME IN! Katie has had some serious trauma in her life and that’s just one of the few reasons I couldn’t stop reading! Katie’s past is one reason and then there is Rogan…ahhhh
You think the good looking, MMA fighter, ex. army ranger turned actor would be a jerk. He can get any girl he wants but he wants Katie. The shy girl with a broken past.Rogan could be one of the nicest guys you will ever read in a book. He is just determined to get past Katie’s walls. And man-o-man those walls are made of steel!
I learned the hard way. It’s better not to shine too bright. Or, sometimes, not to shine at all.
Katie is a make-up artist, just doing her job. She will not allow herself to be swayed by the gorgeous Rogan. And he’s knows it, and kinda likes her even more for that! But Rogan hasn’t lived the perfect life himself, he is trying to live where Katie is just existing.
Watching Rogan teach Katie how to live and love was a beautiful sight.
This…you are the closest I’ve come to living in a long time.
This love story has intimacy, healing, a few laughs and you need to take the time to meet this amazing couple.
I would suggest reading book one in this series to get the back story and enjoy this book that much more!
