What happens when you lose everyone that promised they would always be there for you? How can you protect the few pieces of your shattered heart that remain?

Olivia Adler is a woman with a troubled past. After losing her parents at the young age of six and being raised by an uncle who she lost years later, she refuses to get attached to anyone, including friends. For the past decade, she has been able to remain unattached to any man, too worried about losing someone to get too close. 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 turn her world upside-down. 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?

A Beautiful Mess is the first installment of a three part series sure to captivate the heart with a story of secrets, courage, and love.

My Review:
This book was amazing! I love the main characters, Olivia and Alexander. I may not like some of the decisions they made in this book, but I have my fingers crossed that by the end of the series the fallout of these decisions will be resolved. The storyline was wonderful and I felt it was told at just the right pace. And the love scenes between Olivia and Alexander? H-O-T! The secondary characters added just the right amount of back story to the main story. While I think that I may have some of the secrets figured out, I will more than likely go through more twists and turns in the coming books and realize there is more to it and my guesses were wrong. This story held my interest and I finished it in one sitting (well, took a dinner break but that was it). I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romantic dramatic story!

 About the Author:
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. 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.
