From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.

MLeighton-ToughEnough-Cover250pxHeís a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart?

There was a time when I had everythingña 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, Iíve hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. Iím 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 faultóheís everything I vowed to avoid.

But he just wouldnít stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I shouldíve tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldnít have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that theyíre usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most.

I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too.

I really enjoyed this book!! I love me some M. Leighton books. She just knows how to tell a good story. This was book two in her Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series and much like book one, I was hooked from the jump. This was the story of a scared and scarred young make up artist named Katie and one hit MMA fighter, Rogan.

Rogan and Katie meet on the set of movie project he is taking part in. Katie is his make up artist and the attraction between these two is instant and so damn explosive you feel the sparks jumping off these two from their first encounter. However, Katie has been with a man like Rogan before and to say it ended badly is a huge understatement. Katie is scared of letting her guard down and letting someone into her sheltered world. A world where she works and comes home to her cat, day in and day out. She did realize how empty and lonely her life was still she opened herself up again and gave in to her hearts desire.

Rogan had survived his fair share of darkness and heartache too. However, instead of turning inward and becoming reclusive he fights to survive, and fights to live. He knows what he wants and nothing or no one is going to stand in his way, not even katie. He knows from the moment he sees Katie that she is something special. Someone worth fighting for. Someone worth taking his time and worth his charming wooing ways.

I really enjoyed the journey these two went on. I felt their pain, their past, their darkest hours. And I also felt the joy, the love, and the respect these two had for each other. I highly recommend this book to anywho looking for a tough, yet tender fighter who’s willing to put on the charm to get his girl.
