A Beautiful Mess by T.K. Leigh

a beautiful mess



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 change everything. 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.

Fire coursed through her body as he moved gently inside of her. His movements were slow and deliberate as he took his time, savoring every moment. Olivia didn’t want him gentle. She wanted him to be rough with her. The voice was back and became louder with each soft thrust.

He gently nipped at her neck, tracing a line down her jaw and tugging at her earlobe. “You are one incredible woman,” Alexander said. “God, I love being inside of you, Olivia.” She ran her fingers up and down his back, her touch sending shivers through his body. “Just one touch and I’m ready to lose my mind, Love.”

“Faster, Alex. Please,” she begged as she wrapped her legs around his waist, desperately bucking him with her hips.

“No, Love. I want you to feel me. Do you feel this?” he asked as he continued his slow movements, the closeness almost unbearable.

“Yes, Alexander. I feel it.” And she knew he wasn’t just talking about his erection inside her. He was talking about something else entirely.

The voice grew louder.


I will admit that I was very excited to read A Beautiful Mess and had high expectations because I had been seeing it all over Facebook, and boy, it did not disappoint!!! Alexander. Yes, his name alone gets a sentence because he is just that special. He is a GROWN man doing what he is supposed to do – protecting the love of his life!

Olivia had a traumatizing childhood that has turned her into a young woman with commitment issues. She runs through men without a care in the world until she meets the one she just can’t seem to shake. Alexander. There’s that name again!!!

Olivia and Alexander’s relationship is one that is built over time and it is one that seems more realistic than others in books. This isn’t an overnight romance. The tension builds up and there is a strong foundation, but is it strong enough to overcome the past?

T.K. Leigh does an excellent job of writing complex characters and a story that kept me up way too late at night. My only “complaint” is that now I must wait for book 2 in this series. I’m waiting T.K.!!!

T. K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a producer / attorney by trade. Born and raised in New England, she now lives in Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). 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’s run over 15 fulls and too many halfs to count), or trying to convince her husband that it’s time to give yoga another try. Unlike Olivia, the main character from her debut novel, “A Beautiful Mess,” she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
