The Bad Boys Series by M. Leighton welcomes the second installment Up to Me. If you remember, my review of Down to you was given rave reviews on this site. I was thrilled with the novel. So I was very much the eager woman when I learned book two was finally available.

We left off in book one where Olivia Townsend learns the truth of the Cash/Nash ordeal (the hot and bothered, sexy bad boys). M. Leighton left us with a mysterious stalker like presence in book one.

Up to Me opens the scene with Olivia and Cash, still in that stage of ‘can’t get enough of each other’ and still, Olivia deals with her unfortunate history of getting way too involved with the wrong types of men. She doesn’t trust herself and she is constantly doubting Cash. And yet she is head over hills for him. Continue reading

So last night I did a random Google of the New York Times Best Seller list to see if something would catch my eye. Truly, I don’t have time in my life to read but I love reading so much that I just have to sometimes tear myself away from everything: friends, writing, family, school. EVERYTHING. And I have to hunker down with a book and read. And I don’t mean read a chapter here and then tomorrow read another chapter. I rarely sit down without the intentions of reading an entire book. Um…I do not know what portion control is when it comes to reading. Okay, I do know what it is, I’ve tried it…and I don’t like it. Nope. I don’t take well to reading a chapter or two tonight before bed and then another two tomorrow night before bed. I’m not that type of girl. You should know this already! Continue reading

Review: Down To You by M. Leighton

down to youNY Times Best Sellers Got Something Right!

A while back ago I did a random Google of the New York Times Best Seller list to see if something would catch my eye. Truly, I don’t have time in my life to read but I love reading so much that I just have to sometimes tear myself away from everything: friends, writing, family, school. EVERYTHING. And I have to hunker down with a book and read. And I don’t mean read a chapter here and then tomorrow read another chapter. I rarely sit down without the intentions of reading an entire book. Um…I do not know what portion control is when it comes to reading. Okay, I do know what it is, I’ve tried it…and I don’t like it. Nope. I don’t take well to reading a chapter or two tonight before bed and then another two tomorrow night before bed. I’m not that type of girl. You should know this already!

I skimmed through a few titles, looked the book info up on Goodreads.com and was beginning to lose hope that I would find anything worth reading. Now, I’m sure that those books on the list are very well written, probably quite interesting, and hey, I’ve even downloaded the new J.K. Rowling book on my phone (Thanks Audible.com) but that’s another book review and another post. Then I came to M. Leighton’s book Down To You. I read a few reviews and it seemed interesting enough. Most of the people who wrote their opinions said the same things: lots of great sex scenes, a great twist, hot guys, and a decent story. I considered it for a moment and then when I learned that it would only cost me $3.99 to download I shrugged and said, “Eh, what the hell.”

A few things to get out to the readers:

  • This book contains some very detailed sexual scenes (not raunchy-but hot, steamy, make you wanna call your man and tell him to get home quick scenes.
  • The ebook format is just over 200 pages…and it took me less than 4 hours to read. (My reading speed is just a little quicker than average)

Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty! Continue reading
