Everything For Us
By M. Leighton
Amazon | B&N 
Rating:  Four and a Half Glasses of Wine


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.

Our Review: 

If you have not read Down to You OR Up to Me then go read them NOW and then come back......Thank You!!!!!

So this is the third and final book in The Bad Boy's series by M. Leighton and it was a bittersweet end. This book picks up right where the second book Up to Me left off. Maybe if we are all lucky and we cross our fingers and our toes she might visit these characters later in the future *hint, hint, nudge, nudge*

"I never really wanted to tame him or contain him. I just wanted to be a part of his freedom, to fly with him. I wanted to be more like him, not try to make him more like me." 

Nash Davenport is the stereotypical fictional bad boy. Tattoos, facial hair, a motorcycle, a leather jacket and a dick so big he could break any nonfictional woman in half! He oozes sex appeal and he very much reminds me of a certain "Hot Bunch".  He is a man that knows what he wants and is not afraid to tell you as bluntly as possible. His life has been anything but easy and he hates to have to rely on anyone but himself. When shit hits the fan and his family and loved ones are in harms way he will stop at nothing to protect them. His methods may not be as conventional as Cash (his twin) wants them to be but fists and guns are what Nash knows best. When you toss a tall, leggy blonde into the mix feelings he shouldn't be having cause problems. 

"It's almost as though he resists the help, the emotion of other people. He's a loner, stranded on an island of anger and bitterness. he needs rescuing. He just doesn't know it yet. And that's the moment I realize that yes, he is trouble. And that no, it won't keep me away from him. Nothing will."

Marissa used to be a snotty, spoiled, rich bitch. She used to use men to climb her way to the top. She used to hate her cousin Olivia and her sweet personaility. She used to.......but that was before she lost control of her life. Born and raised to be everything her High power daddy wanted her to be Marissa has finally decided that she doesn't want the life that was chosen for her. When she meets sexy, blunt Nash Davenport she is drawn to him like a moth to a flame. She knows she is going to get burned and she doesn't care. Thats what happens when you play with fire after all. She falls hard and fast for the bad boy she knows will break her heart. 

"You should probably stay away from me.”
“I know.”
   “I’m trouble.”
“I know.” 
“You'll  probably get hurt.”
“I know.”
"Then you can’t say I didn’t warn you.”
 “I know.”

The chemistry is explosive in and out of the bedroom. We still get a little of Cash and Olivia so for those that were worried we wouldn't hear from them again, do not fret! Two broken souls,  who think they don't deserve true love. Both battling demons that will either drag them down or make them stronger. I loved the ending and I fell in love with Nash about 1/4 of the way in. You can not help but feel for the life he has lived. If you have not read the first two books in The Bad Boy series then I HIGHLY suggest you stop what your doing and go read them. You will NOT be disappointed. I give Everything for Us by M. Leighton 4.5 glasses of White Zin. With tears in my eyes I say fair well to Cash & Nash......(for now?!?!?!?)

"It's like we're combustible, like we have one default setting between us--fire."
