When Tyler finds himself falling for Mackenzie, will he be able push his feelings aside and recover the information he needs? Or will he put the mission and their lives at risk to follow his heart? Chasing The Dragon is the first installment of a two part series of deception and betrayal where nothing is as it seems. ***Note - Chasing The Dragon is the first book in a two-book duet and is a spin-off of T.K. Leigh's USA Today Best Selling Beautiful Mess series. It is not necessary to have read that series in order to read this duet, but it will contain a mild spoiler from the third book in the Beautiful Mess series, Gorgeous Chaos.***
So we meet a new Burnham brother... Tyler. Dark. Mysterious. Deceiver. This book is NOT a continuation of The Beautiful Mess Series. It's a new series of its own. So if you are looking for more Alexander, you aren't going to get that. Although he does have cameo appearances...
Deception. There is a lot of that in this book. Everything is upside-down, sideways... Nothing is clear in this story. Be prepared to be confused and guessing all of the way through. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is as it seems. You don't know who the bad guys are. You don't know who the good guys are. In fact, you don't know if there really is a difference.
This book is just as complex as it is sexy. Tyler's mission isn't to fall for Mackenzie; it's to find out where her father is. To bring him to justice. Getting the information he needs isn't so easy once he has his eye on his target. Beautiful. Controlling. Successful. Driven. She is everything he never knew he was missing.
Mackenzie has maintained her control on her life for years. Nothing can stop her from achieving her dreams. Not even this hot stranger who has now placed himself in her life. Not knowing who to trust, with her ex stalking her, her father in hiding. Things she has always known to be true may not be truth after all.
This book is a rollercoaster of a story that has all kinds of twists and turns. Hang on tight! You will go for a thrilling ride in this book!
