book blurb

Four beautiful days.  Three steamy nights.  One breathtaking love.

Levi Michaelson. He caught me when I fell. Literally.

He wanted four dates. Four opportunities to prove I could trust him. Four chances to change my mind about him.

I agreed.

Probably not my smartest decision. He was everything I knew to avoid—gorgeous, charming, sexy as hell—but I couldn’t help myself.  When he touched me the whole world disappeared. I should’ve known I could lose myself to him.

It’s true what they say—some things are too good to be true.  And Levi Michaelson might just be one of them.

excerpt“What are you thinking?” he asks.

“Who is this?”

His laugh is a low rumble that tugs at the corners of my mouth and sends my heart soaring.  It feels so good to laugh, and to laugh with Levi.

“Vixen! I’m not wounded at all.

“I was thinking about swirls of mahogany and wine and denim. How it tastes. How it feels. How it makes me feel. How you make me feel.”


I pause.  “It’s quite the cocktail. If I could paint it, every woman in the world would swoon.”

“I guess that’s pretty okay then.”

“Pretty okay?”

I feel the shrug of his shoulders.  “I only did this because you were wondering if I was going to try to kiss you. I didn’t want to keep you in suspense.”

“Oh, well that’s quite chivalrous of you.  To make such a sacrifice.”

“Sacrifice indeed,” he says, bending his head to sweep kisses along my jaw, down the side of my neck.  “And just to reiterate, if you must have sex, I’m perfectly willing to take one for the team.  You know, if you must have it. I know how irresistible I can be…”

His voice has dropped low, his mouth weaving a spell over me as he speaks and kisses, weaving, weaving, weaving.  His hands are roaming the base of my spine and the swell of my hips, teasing as he holds me close.

“I’ll be sure to let you know if I must,” I mutter, letting my head fall back as he trails his lips down my throat.

“What are you thinking now?”

As he asks, he pins me to the wall in the hallway.  For the life of me, I can’t remember him moving me away from the door.

He rubs his body along mine, thigh scraping thigh, chest grazing chest. His tongue licks deliciously at my pulse, his teeth bite softly at my collarbone.

“I’m thinking you could be the end of me. The bright, beautiful firework that ends me.  That sets me on fire.  The flame that burns a brilliant blue and gold and white at the center of me.”

“I don’t want to be the end of you. I want to be the beginning,” he whispers, his voice a quiet, luscious roll across my eardrums.

“What are you doing to me?” I ask, my fingers working over the taut muscles of his shoulders, holding him to me as he wrecks me, like I might fall or disappear if he lets go.

That is what I was thinking,” he confesses, his lips making their way back to mine.  “What are you doing to me?”

He kisses me once more, words and tongues and moans tangling together, fusing into a maelstrom of sensation.

But then, all too soon or maybe not soon enough, he’s pulling back. He’s setting me on my feet in reality.

my review

5 Stars

I totally bow down to the greatness that is M. Leighton. Her books are some of my absolute favorites because she writes about characters that truly impact my emotions. Her latest release, Levi’s Blue was no different – she killed me with this romance.  I was laughing and swooning – heartbroken and angry.  But more than anything, I was in love with Evie and Levi.

A chance encounter brought them together but an undeniable chemistry intrigues them into wanting more. And you get it because the scenes between Evie and Levi are filled with smart, witty conversations and later, intense passionate moments.  I was completed enchanted with their relationship for the entire book, even when things get rocky.

Because it’s not all smooth sailing for this duo. Secrets, lies and blackmail lay hidden behind their romantic dates and getaways. It makes for an intense reading experience – I couldn’t help but feel consumed by Levi and Evie. I wondered when the bottom would drop out and how they would deal with their issues.

I wasn’t disappointed.  The way the book’s plot unfolded and resolved was awesome.

Levi’s Blue was both incredibly sexy and gut wrenching at the same time. The author wrote a beautiful story that will make your heart sigh as well as destroy any panties that you’re wearing. I absolutely loved this romance and cannot gush about it enough.

Levi’s Blue is a top recommendation from me.. don’t miss out on this book.  It is incredible.
