From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the first in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.
Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?
How would I describe myself? Well, I’m Muse Harper. I’m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything I’ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.
That’s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn’t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn’t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I’d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don’t know if I’d have done things differently.
Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that I’m falling in love with and hope that he’ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get.
With such a heart-wrenching prologue, I just knew this was going to be a fantastic read! Leighton showcases her beautiful writing perfectly in this sexy, action-packed, heart-stopping new series! STRONG ENOUGH kept me up until the early morning hours, keeping me exhilarated the whole way through. My curiosity was piqued from the very beginning, and when it all comes together, you won’t know what hit you.
Muse Harper walked away from her life to protect a loved one. When that loved one goes missing she becomes desperate, reaching out to a bounty hunter with so many secrets. Jasper King always finds his guy, and he is more than willing to help Muse, but might he have an ulterior motive? Jasper is a man with his own agenda. He is ruthless, brutal, and gets what he wants no matter what. Muse was supposed to be a means to an end, collateral damage, but she gets to close, starts to press his buttons, and ends up getting a glance at the man behind the monster.
This is an intense and sexy romance shrouded with mystery. Shock wave after shock wave of suspenseful goodness. Oh how I absolutely ADORED Jasper’s character. The man who believes he is a monster, void of any emotion other than anger. He ends up falling so hard for the girl and showing us who he really is deep inside. It’s a beautiful journey, a sad and heartbreaking journey, but beautiful none the less. Muse was a great heroine – strong, determined, perfect for Jasper in every way. This couple worked so well together. They had fantastic smoldering chemistry. The kind that will give you chills.
This was such a great tale of passion, love, and sacrifice. There is tons of mystery, intrigue, and sexy goodness! Intensely emotional at times, I became invested in this couple, rooting them on every step of the way. Leighton did her job with this book. She got me SO excited for what is to come in this series. We meet fantastic characters and get a small glimpse into their lives, giving us an inkling of what is to come. This author always blows me away with her beautiful style of writing. She sucks me in and holds my head and my heart captive. I LOVE it!
