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?

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.

Excerpt

“I am not interested in being with someone as self-absorbed as she is. I’m interested in being with a kind, loving, compassionate individual. Someone who doesn’t care how large my bank account is. Someone who devotes her time to improving the lives of others around her, human and otherwise. Someone who makes my heart swell whenever I think about her. Who puts a smile on my face just knowing that she’s out in the world. Who drives me all sorts of crazy when she looks at me with her beautiful brown eyes. I’ve been waiting my entire life to find you, Olivia. Please. Don’t shut me out.”

Review

StarStarStarStarStar

This book is definitely on my must reread this book again list!  I don’t even know where I should go with this review!  There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book!  It is absolutely phenomenal!
Olivia can’t remember her life before her parents died.  Alexander has never believed she died that day like his dad said she did.  Now the two have crossed paths again.  Their bond proves to be strong.  They were best friends in their past life.  However, their past life is slowly catching up to them, well at least Olivia.
Alexander’s love for Olivia could destroy them.  He is of the mind that the less she knows and remembers about their past, the better chance for her to stay alive.  He is convinced that she could some how be in danger if she remembers her life before her parents’ death.  But she is slowly remembering.  He knows if he keeps their lives that she doesn’t remember from her, it could break her.  But he will do anything to protect her in every way possible.
Olivia has had the same nightmares since she was a little girl.  Now, her nightmares are becoming more clear and detailed.  More and more memories are coming to the surface.  She can’t seem to piece them together.  There is something about Alexander that is so familiar and comfortable.  The feelings she has for him scare her.  She has spent her life not forming connections and relationships.  Now she has Alexander and all she wants to do is spend time with him and run at the same time.
Olivia and Alexander’s relationship is like a volcano ready to explode.  And it does whenever they are near each other.  Their feelings are so intense, there are no words that come to mind right now.  But secrets may destroy them. 
And there’s a difference between finding someone good looking and finding them attractive.  You can be good looking and not be attractive.  Being attracted to someone isn’t just digging them on a physical level.  It’s something more.  It’s opening your soul to someone, letting them in.  Telling them your hopes and dreams and fears.  Letting them know the real you.
T.K. Leigh has a way to tell this story in such a way that will not allow you to put this book down.  She will have you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next ball to drop.  By the end of this book she will have you hook, line and sinker.  You will be disappointed in the ending but at the same time not disappointed.  I can’t tell you why.  But let’s just say instead of things being resolved and getting a happy ending, you get to take the dredge further down in to a deeper pile of suspense and wonder.  You will be reeling and begging for more.  You get more but not until next year.
