How can you continue living when you’re living a lie? How can you convince your body to stop feeling, your soul to stop caring, and your heart to stop beating? Haunted by her past, Olivia Adler flees Boston for a beach in Florida, leaving everyone behind, trying to shut the world out. Remaining a relative recluse in her self-imposed prison, she tries to turn everything off, wanting to feel nothing. But a new acquaintance won’t let that happen. After being away from Alexander for a month, his voice constantly ringing in her head, reminding her that her inability to confront her demons will not only destroy her, but also him, can she really be expected to want to feel again when it brings nothing but pain? Back in Boston, everywhere he turns, Alexander Burnham is reminded of Olivia… His Olivia… He tries to dull the ache left in his heart the only way he knows how… in the bed of a beautiful woman. But Alexander isn’t about to lose his Olivia. After a clue comes to light regarding Olivia’s whereabouts, can he convince her to return to Boston with him? When a force that has laid dormant for months resurfaces, can Alexander still protect her from the unknown danger? And when Alexander comes face to face with a shadow of both his and Olivia’s past, will he be able to tell her the secret that is threatening to tear them apart? A Tragic Wreck is the continuation of T.K. Leigh’s heart-breakingBeautiful Mess series.
I cannot express my love for Alexander. The moment this book was available, I spent the next 4 hours reading. Once again T.K. Leigh sucked me into her world of Mr. Burnham and Olivia's for the follow up book, A Tragic Wreck. I have been waiting for this follow up books for months and T.K. Leigh has been teasing us with pictures and little excerpts on FB and it has driven me mad!
This book starts right where A Beautiful Mess ended; in absolute disarray of their lives. Olivia could not handle the truth of what Alexander kept from her in all the time they were together. She can't live with him but can't function without him. The only sanity she has left remains when she meets a surfer she has eyed for the last month. The only problem is she can't mask the feelings she has for Alexander and move on with her life.
As for Alexander, he is left back in Boston knowing he has scared off the only person he has ever loved. My heart was broken 90% of this book. I know I had a looked like someone just kicked my puppy reading it. Now the story of what happens after the break up with Alexander, I cannot tell you. You may curse at me for spoiling it.
I will admit I wanted to yell, cuss, cry and smile when reading this. Okay, I cried....But I guarantee you will too. Loved it till the end. I need more Mr. Burnham and expect him as fast as humanly possible!
I rate the book a 4.8 out of 5. This is an epic rating for an epic story. I will only expect the next book to be the best. One of the best love stories.....sigh.
Dream Cast for A Tragic Wreck
T. K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a producer / attorney by trade. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn’t until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre. When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
