Review: Tough Enough (Tall, Dark and Dangerous #2) by M. Leighton! @mleightonbooks

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.
He’s a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart?
There was a time when I had everything–a 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, I’ve hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. I’m 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 fault—he’s everything I vowed to avoid.
But he just wouldn’t stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I should’ve tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldn’t have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that they’re usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most.
I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too. 
4 Stars!

After reading the prologue to this book I was hooked,I knew this story would “get me” and it did. I was anxious to get Katie’s story,to know what happened in her past to cause her to hide in a shell and shut the world out. Once her backstory is revealed it is truly heartbreaking and made me become Katie’s personal cheerleader as she recovers pieces of her old self back. Thanks to the charming, determined and sexy as hell Rogan, who has the patience to do whatever it takes to win Katie over since he also has had a rough road through life.
I loved the slow building romance, the challenges these two endure and a hero and heroine who both grow drastically throughout this story. The last few chapters are fan-freaking-tastic, and I was on the edge of my seat. I look forward to the next installment to this series since M. Leighton knows how give us a romance that is sexy, edgy and captivating!
