Up To Me (The Bad Boys #2) by M. Leighton
Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.
Olivia finds bliss unlike any she’s ever known in Cash’s arms. He sets her skin on fire and melts her heart right inside her chest. Unfortunately, their happily ever after is short-lived when a shadow from Cash’s past threatens to turn their world upside down.
Dangerous people from his father’s world have discovered that Cash holds information that could put them away for a very long time. And they’re willing to do anything—and hurt anybody—to get it back. Giving it up means Cash must choose between the life of his father and the life of Olivia.
Having nearly overcome her wariness of bad boys, Olivia’s trust is shaken when this new threat arises. Now she finds that Cash is not only a danger to her heart, but his family has associations that are a danger to her life as well. She soon discovers that there are some situations in life where trust is a girl’s only option. And this is one of them. If she’s to live, she must trust Cash with her life. But to Olivia, that’s much, much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart.
Review (Please note: you definitely want to read Down to You first before Up to Me)
Love. Passion. Danger. Sweetness. Spice. All mixed up together into this yummy second book in the Bad Boys Series making this a definite add to your reading list. I dare say I liked this one just a teeny bit more than the first. I was already a bit in
lust love with Cash so maybe it was the added danger associated with his family history. Or the development of Cash and Olivia’s relationship. Or their internal conflicts and fears: Does Olivia really want a bad boy like Cash? Can he be what she wants and needs? Or the introduction of Gavin (“Holy furry crap balls! He’s gorgeous!”) and a mystery man. Whatever it was, it worked!
Gloria, Olivia’s mom (a piece of work right there!), and Marissa all makes appearances in Up to Me. I adore Gloria and her sassy, don’t-hold-back mouth! And Marissa makes a few changes here that left me wondering where her story will be headed. Very intriguing.
M. Leighton definitely left me wanting more Bad Boys. I’m eagerly awaiting book #3.
In the meantime, about that Jack Daniels? Cash can pour me a shot anytime!
