Wow! How does M. Leighton write a good book every time? Except Brave Enough wasn't just good, it was amazing! I loved this book so much I just sped right through it. I had a strong feeling that Tag's story was going to be my favorite of the three and I was right. There was nothing about this book that I didn't like. I was hooked from the very beginning. That first chapter had me laughing and falling for Tag instantly.
Brave Enough was a little more laid back than the other two books in the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series. The only real danger this time around came from Weatherly's father and not in the physical form either. Of course, Tag never even blinked an eye when it came to William O'Neal because he knew that Weatherly's opinion was the only one that mattered. You could feel the chemistry between those Weatherly and Tag from their very first meeting, which was certainly an interesting way to be introduced to someone.
Oh and their first love scene, holy crap...to say that M. Leighton got a little creative with that part would be an understatement. It didn't take them long to get down and dirty, literally. You are just going to have to read this book to understand my reasoning behind the word “literally” because that scene is too good to just tell you what happens. It needs to be experienced and imagined by each reader.
I can't even choose a favorite part because I loved everything about this story. I almost forgot that Tag was in the Special Forces because the way he is when he's around Weatherly was absolutely endearing. He goes from being bad to the bone to being putty in her hands.
Brave Enough is yet another M. Leighton book that needs to be added to your TBR list as soon as possible, but don't just add it to your list, grab a copy and fall in love with Taggert Barton. This can be read as a standalone, but the other books in this series are good too, so I suggest reading them all! Highly recommended!
From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes another dark, sexy story…
Is she brave enough to give her heart to a man she only thought she knew?
He was the most charismatic man I’d ever met. Strong, tough, brave. Bold as hell. Something told me Tag Barton could have anything—anyone—he wanted...and he wanted me. It didn’t matter that he was wrong for me in practically every way possible. It didn’t matter that my father would hate it.
I couldn’t resist him. Even if I’d known who he really was and what he was really capable of.
When he suggested we pretend to be engaged, I thought he was the answer to all my problems. He wasn’t. And, in his wake, he left nothing but scorched earth and me, just another casualty of my father’s war.
Can I believe him now when he tells me he loves me? Or is he nothing more than a beautiful, breathtaking lie?
