Review: Slaying the Dragon by TK Leigh

I should have resisted him, but I couldn’t. My addiction to him was all-consuming, the high from his touch unlike any other.
Without him, I couldn’t focus, couldn’t think, couldn’t breathe.
With him, I hated myself for being too weak to fight the devil himself.
And Tyler Burnham was the devil.
He used me.
He lied to me.
But he loved me. And he still does.

Unable to stop thinking about the man who deceived her, Mackenzie Delano struggles to move on and forget that Tyler Burnham ever walked into her life. But she still aches for him, despite his betrayal. Her mind is at war with her heart, a war that could be the difference between living and dying.

Tyler Burnham is lost without Mackenzie. As he contemplates the meaning of everything, he tries to find a way to prove that his feelings for her are true. That he would walk through fire to keep her at his side. That he would sacrifice it all…his career, his fortune, his life…to protect her.

The truth is, he may just have to…

Slaying The Dragon is the suspense-filled conclusion to T.K. Leigh’s Deception Duet.

★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★

This is the perfect follow-up to Chasing the Dragon. I don't think there could have been a better conclusion to this twisting and turning story.

First, let me start with letting you know that this the conclusion to Chasing the Dragon. It is not a standalone. You can't just pick up this book and read it without reading the first book.

I have debated how I wanted to approach this review. I had so many mixed feelings while reading this one. At times, I couldn't stan Mack. Other times my heart warmed for her. My feelings for her kept flip-flopping all throughout the book.

I wasn't much of a fan of Alex's for a while there in this one. I know, shocker. Everyone loves Alex. Well, his deceitfulness causes such heartbreak, I couldn't help but not to be a fan of his. Eventually, he redeems himself though. So, don't worry. I am not anti-Alex anymore.

Tyler. What can I say about Tyler? His heart is as big as Texas and his love for Mack won't ever fade. His love for her is his best motivator. I couldn't help but to love him from start to finish.

Like T.K.'s other books, this book is written with such meticulous intent and purposefulness, I couldn't help but to get lost in the pages. I was hooked from the get-go. With all of the lies and questions, T.K. had my mind reeling and questioning everything and everyone throughout this book.


T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is the USA Today Best Selling author of the Beautiful Mess series. 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.
