Review for A Tragic Wreck by T.K. Leigh

Title: A Tragic Wreck
Author: T.K. Leigh
Reviewer: Amber
Rating: 4 Groupie Stars

Sequel to T.K. Leigh's "A Beautiful Mess."

How can you continue living when you’re living a lie? How can you convince your body to stop feeling, your soul to stop caring, and your heart to stop beating?

Haunted by her past, Olivia Adler flees Boston for a beach in Florida, leaving everyone behind, trying to shut the world out. Remaining a relative recluse in her self-imposed prison, she tries to turn everything off, wanting to feel nothing. But a new acquaintance won’t let that happen. After being away from Alexander for a month, his voice constantly ringing in her head, reminding her that her inability to confront her demons will not only destroy her, but also him, can she really be expected to want to feel again when it brings nothing but pain?
Back in Boston, everywhere he turns, Alexander Burnham is reminded of Olivia… His Olivia… He tries to dull the ache left in his heart the only way he knows how… in the bed of a beautiful woman. But Alexander isn’t about to lose his Olivia. After a clue comes to light regarding Olivia’s whereabouts, can he convince her to return to Boston with him? When a force that has laid dormant for months resurfaces, can Alexander still protect her from the unknown danger? And when Alexander comes face to face with a shadow of both his and Olivia’s past, will he be able to tell her the secret that is threatening to tear them apart?

"A Tragic Wreck" is the continuation of T.K. Leigh’s heartbreaking "Beautiful Mess" series.

This is the second book in the Beautiful Mess series.  In the first book we are introduced to Olivia and Alexander.  This book was even more full of angst, drama, and love.  
T.K. Leigh kept me on edge the entire time I was reading this book.  It was heartbreakingly good.  It made me smile, cry, and made me want to throw my Kindle a few times, too.
Alexander is still his hot, dominating, protective self and Olivia is still scared and trying to push people away.  Olivia and Alexander are both unsure of their relationship.  They are scared and confused.  Olivia is trying her best to keep people from getting too close, afraid of what might happen if they do.  The chemistry between the two of them is off-the-charts.  They are pulled to each other by an unexplainable force.  No matter what happens they are drawn to one another.
I loved this book as much as the first one in the series.  I can't wait for the third book to see what becomes of Alexander and Olivia.  This book will make you hot, make you cry, and make you want more of Mr. Alexander Burnham and Miss Olivia Adler.

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a producer / attorney by trade. 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.

Her debut novel “A Beautiful Mess” has garnered relative praise, having been an Amazon Best Seller and an Amazon Top-Rated book. Recently, the book was named by The Guardian as a top reader-recommended self-published book of 2013 as well as a 2013 Reader’s Favorite in Publisher’s Weekly in addition to being named an Amazon Romance Editor's Fan Favorite for Top Debut Author and Best Page Turner.

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.
