This excerpt is SPOT ON! This book kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more and more and more. I was slapped in the face by how this book captured me from beginning to end. I could NOT put it down. The only thing you need to know is this is a Cliff Hanger! (Cringe) I know, I know...I don't like cliff hangers either but this book is well worth the read. If you do anything today or tomorrow or next week (preferably today) GO BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!! You will be so glad you did. And you can thank me later.
Olivia lost her parents in a horrible car accident and was raised by her uncle who she also lost. The book picks up telling about her way of things. She is all about One Night Stands and Alcohol. Don't come between those two things and you'll be okay. Get attached and you'll likely end up with a broken heart and a girl running scared from you. Her mother left her with more money that she could ever spend in this lifetime but money means nothing to her. She doesn't go around spending it like crazy, instead she opened a fitness center with her friend Kiera and works part time teaching a few exercise classes. When she's not there you can find her at the local animal shelter volunteering her time. She has nightmares regularly about the accident and she can't really remember anything about it. That's where the alcohol and sex come in...to numb the pain.
Alexander Burnham, having issues of his own has spent his life wondering and searching for the childhood friend he lost 21 years ago. The little brown-eyed girl has popped up everywhere but always ends up not being his friend. He can't accept that she died in that car crash. It's just not possible. He refuses to believe it. So when he ends up saving Olivia Adler's life one night, by taking down her attacker he has to wonder. He invites her up to his office to clean up the scrapes and cuts and looks into those deep brown eyes. Could this be the girl he's been looking for all these years? He has to find out. Something about the sparks that fly when they touch, something about all the things she slowly opens up to him start making sense. Is this really his Olivia? The last names don't match. But he will go through the depths of hell to find out if this is the woman he's been looking for forever. His Olibia!

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a producer/attorney by trade. 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.
