Review: EVERYTHING FOR US by M.Leighton


Author: M. Leighton

Source: bought paperback


When it comes to passion this hot, it’s all or nothing.

Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends’ money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.

An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.

With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.

My take...
Marissa has been cold and heartless her whole life; she was bred that way. But when a case of mistaken identity gets her kidnapped and held hostage and then freed, well, she looks at life a little differently. So she decides it is time to start over and reinvent herself. And it starts with apologizing to her cousin, Olivia, who she has treated worst of all. And with a little help from Nash, maybe she can be the person she needs to be...the person she wants to be. With his help, she feels free. And maybe somewhere along the way she will be able to free him, too, of his demons.
But a part of me doesn’t mind him intruding on my privacy. In fact, on some level, I crave it. I crave everything he represents. He is like rebellion. And freedom. Like a salvation of sorts. I just didn’t know until recently that I needed saving.
Leighton, Leighton, Leighton!! Do you know how much I adore you? Do you know how happy I am to have been introduced to these fabulous characters or the wickedly amazing storyline you delivered book after book? So much emotion run rampant in your stories and I am truly glad to have been a part of it. You are one serious author to be reckoned with. And I look forward to much, much more of your work!
Hot {adjective} Definition: very high in temperature
This whole series is completely and utterly hot. Yes, if one word had to be used it would be that...HOT!  And EVERYTHING FOR US was no different than the first two. Mrs. Leighton sure knows what she is doing when she writing certain scenes. Oh yes, you know what scenes I am talking about don’t you? Those scenes that stay with you long after they are over; on constant replay in your mind. Oh la la!
When I say what I am about to say…I am probably gonna have to dodge a few evil glares and snide remarks thrown my way. But hear me out, okay? Lately I have grown tired of reading the same thing over and over again. You see it in Every.Single.Book lately...the cocky, selfish, I want every woman to drown in my gorgeousness type of guy. And Nash is no different. Only thing works for him. And it works for this book. So yeah, even though I am sick of reading that type of guy lately, I wouldn’t want Nash any other way. I’ll take him any way I can get him.
Regardless of his motives, the effect is still the same. In fact, the thought that he might need me as I feel like I need him intensifies it. Instantly, my mind stills and the panic quiets. That’s the moment I realize that yes, he is trouble. And that no, it won’t keep me away from him. Nothing will.                And I don’t know why.
I absolutely recommend this book! But if you’ve read the other 2 there should be no doubt in your mind that you should read this one. Am I right or am I right? It finished out the series perfectly when closure on all accounts. Not one part did I feel didn’t get the closure it so desperately needed. Infact, I finished this story with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face.
