Review ~ A Tragic Wreck by T.K. Leigh

A Tragic Wreck (Beautiful Mess, #2)

~ Blurb ~

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.

First of all I have to say i'm still hanging from this awesome book. A Tragic Wreck by T.K. Leigh, is the second installment of A Beautiful Mess, which I must say it equally as good. Booky Ramblings was lucky enough to read and review this book before the releasing date and for a honest opinion. Im so glad to get my hand on this story! 

My honest opinion is i'm speechless, just couldn't get enough of this awesome book, let alone put it down. This book had you gripping on the edge, waiting to see what happens, with a lot of twist and turns and heartache in the process. God, it was like my heart and mine was going through this emotional rollercoaster ride with them, aching and feeling them for all the way to the end. The chemistry was awesome between Alexander Burnham and Olivia Alder, the author really build you right in and you can feel the emotion from characters point of view. The sub character, friends and family member also building in the story beautifully, each character are just as important in Alex and Olivia's relationship.

Lets ramble on about the story, it really was up and down for Alex and Olivia they face a lot of challenge along the way but mainly with their own inner self. Finding hard to believe that someone actually love you and never will leave you, is definitely hard line to blur for them both. They are both under control of themselves until the other way in their lives and took over. As the story continue on right where A Beautiful Mess left off you will just jump right back into the story without really needing a recap as the story just flows beautifully on. Both Alex and Olivia fighting whether to follow their heart or mind to protect themselve from getting hurt but either way they get hurt because they know truly where each other belongs.

Alex desperately want to protect his beloved but still can't bring himself to tell her the truth yet and scared for his heart to be broken again. Olivia on the other hand is scared the feeling she has for Alex is so deep, she is refusing to face it, scared it will lead to something tragic and it will wreck her in no recovery.

It really is about fighting for what you love and believe, giving yourself and your heart a chance! Like i said it really was a emotional rollercoaster from start to finish and you will be feeling it right them the characters like I did. some points i just want to shout and scream at them and other times i want to hug and cry with them. Loved every minute of reading this amazing story just can't wait what's next...

~ A bit about the author: T.K. Leigh ~

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, an Amazon Top-Rated book, and just recently was named by The Guardian as a top reader-recommended self-published book of 2013.

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.
