Description from the publisher:

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 Olivia's 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.

Recommended for ages 18 and up due to sexual situations, language, and mild violence


Olivia's parents were killed when she was six.  She was there, but has no true memories from such an early age.  Losing her parents at six and then her guardian at 21 has affected Olivia deeply.  She doesn't do relationships.  Alexander's best friend died when she was six.  He doesn't do relationships either.  When they meet the sparks are undeniable.  Will his secrets and her insecurities protect their hearts or destroy them?


Would you believe that when I got to the part where Olivia was singing in her studio about the loss of family and friends, my Winamp started playing Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On?"  It was chilling!  This was another one of those schizoid reaction books.  One minute I was laughing, then crying, then blushing…  This is an extremely well written, edge-of-your-seat, page-flipping action, suspense, love, and friendship story.


I absolutely LOVE this story.  I will be counting the days until I receive A TRAGIC WRECK.  I am officially in love with T.K. Leigh and I will have her babies if she lets me (move over Mr. Leigh).  If you haven't read this yet, what is keeping you?  Tell me!
