Review

"This book is everything you want in a perfect romance...Get this book. Right now." ---Courtney Cole, author of Initium

Product Description

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes another dark, sexy story…
 
Is she brave enough to give her heart to a man she only thought she knew?
 
He was the most charismatic man I’d ever met. Strong, tough, brave. Bold as hell. Something told me Tag Barton could have anything—anyone—he wanted...and he wanted me. It didn’t matter that he was wrong for me in practically every way possible. It didn’t matter that my father would hate it.
 
I couldn’t resist him. Even if I’d known who he really was and what he was really capable of.
 
When he suggested we pretend to be engaged, I thought he was the answer to all my problems. He wasn’t. And, in his wake, he left nothing but scorched earth and me, just another casualty of my father’s war.
 
Can I believe him now when he tells me he loves me?  Or is he nothing more than a beautiful, breathtaking lie?

HASH(0x9da3521c) out of 5 stars Surprised by the storyline - still loved the book! April 5 2016
By Katie Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 stars!!! This review was one of the most difficult reviews I think I have ever had to write. I liked this book. I liked the storyline. I really liked the two main characters, Tag and Weatherly, but it didn’t feel like the story fit in with the rest of the series. In the previous books in this series, we have drama, suspense, action, people dying, and government corruption. When I heard Brave Enough was available for review, I jumped on the chance. I went in to this book with the expectation that it would be like the previous books, loaded with action. That is just simply not the case with Brave Enough.
Tag and Weatherly are from two different worlds, but they are drawn to one another. At first, they are using each other, but the connection between the two sizzles, and eventually the inferno catches. Just wait until you read that one scene from the rows of grapes… it makes me blush just remembering it! Even through the false front they are putting on, you can see they both desperately want to grab at what is in front of them. This was a very sweet love story, one that will leave you happy and satisfied with both the story and the resolution.
Although Tag is a seasoned war veteran who deserves to have some smooth sailing in his life, I did not have this expectation, so as I was reading, I feel it tainted my opinion of the book. I ended up finishing the book, setting it down and walking away for a few weeks, and then before I wrote my review, I tried to re-read the book with a fresh set of eyes. When I did this, my opinion definitely improved.
I don’t want you to take this as me telling you not to read this book, but I feel very strongly about posting honest reviews. I really liked this storyline and the characters. If this book had been its own spin-off or completely unrelated series, I think I would have given this closer to a 4.5 star review. I think people should read this book. I have been hooked on the series from the first time I read the first book’s prologue, and I think you will really enjoy this. I just feel that if you are connected to the series, then you should know that this story does not flow the same as the previous books. M. Leighton is one of my favorite go to authors, and she still will be. I can’t wait to see what she gives us next!

HASH(0x9e14a714) out of 5 stars My Favorite of the Trilogy! April 5 2016
By C at Prisoners of Print - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The final installment of the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous trilogy by M. Leighton is finally here! After feeling torn on how I felt after I finished the second book, I’ll admit that I was slightly nervous about how this one would affect me. I’m happy to say that Brave Enough had the perfect storytelling aspect that dug its talons into me, and wouldn’t let me go until I turned that last page.

“But you’re in my world now. Here, the only thing that matters is whether or not you want me to kiss you as badly as I want to. Here, we are all that matter.”

I really did love the storyline that was the driving force of Brave Enough. Weatherly had grown up prim and proper, so she sought some kind of freedom and to carve a piece of life for herself. On the other hand, you had Tag, who was able to pull out every inhibition that she had. In a sense, he was that guy ruled by his passions rather than responsibilities. Tag was able to give her a taste of the life she wanted, which made for the perfect dynamic between the two. These characters had some sizzling chemistry together with moments that made me smile and swoon, but also warmed my heart.

“Meeting Tag might be the thing that saves me.”

While I did love this hero and heroine, I also felt like I was missing some of the character depth that I know Leighton is capable of. I wanted more of Tag’s background, especially because we did receive chapters from his point of view. There is one scene in particular where he gets news from Weatherly, and it seems like a key moment for readers to really experience what he is feeling and the complicated emotions it would bring out. Yet, it’s skipped right over and we continue on with her side of it. As a curious person who lives through emotion, it left me feeling like there was room for a little bit more depth.

“I feel him as if he were still here, though. My body remembers every touch. My heart remembers every word. If only I could believe either.”

The first half of the novel, where the characters are getting to know each other and it’s leading to this big moment, was a giddy journey that I couldn’t get enough of. At around that halfway point, something happens that threw me for a bit of a loop because it felt a tad rushed so I was a little confused. However, that being said, M. Leighton weaves a tale that will certainly leave you intrigued. There wasn’t a major connection to the previous books in the trilogy so I don’t think you have to read them beforehand. Of all the books in the series, this one is probably my favorite. The storytelling that Leighton does felt so effortless and the characters are ones that complement each other so well, so you can’t help but root for them. Now that we say goodbye to the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous men, I’m curious to see where M. Leighton will go next!

HASH(0x9e45a420) out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars April 7 2016
By Dirty Girl Romance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Truth be told, I struggled with my rating for this book for days now. I've been marinating and marinating over what to rate it. Do I rate it as a part of the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series which it didn't seem to fit at all? Or do I rate it as a standalone I felt it should have been? After much deliberation, I've decided to go with something in the middle of the two. Because here's the thing, while I did truly enjoy Brave Enough, I didn't find it fit the series. Aside from Tag being a hero that was first introduced early in the series, there is really no other connection. The story felt different, the romance felt different, and the entire feel of it was just different.

Strong Enough was a heart pounding and intense read. Tough Enough was a lot more tame, but it did follow on the heels of a story arc that was first introduced in Strong Enough. Brave Enough was something else entirely. Those that have read the series will see what I mean, and those that haven't, good news! You can easily read this as a standalone and miss nothing.

Weatherly O’Neil is seeking to escape her life for a bit and her father's dictation of her life. Growing up in wealth and privilege, Weatherly never quite felt like she fit in that social circle. But now that her father is insisting that she marry someone for wealth and business reasons, she needs out; out from the pressures of her parents and her life. She finds that out in her beloved escape; her parent's vineyard. There she comes face to face with the most charming, enigmatic and gorgeous man she's ever met. His eyes promise the most delicious kind of sin, and his lips promise that she'll enjoy the seduction.

Previous Special Forces and part of Delta Five team along with Jasper and Kiefer, Tag lives a different life now taking care of his ailing mother who works and lives on the vineyard as well as tending to the vineyard itself. Tag has never been the type to hurt for female attention but when he first lays eyes on
Weatherly he knows it's a game changer. He's determined to break down all her walls and ask her to be brave enough to take a chance on him. But Tag also has a secret, one that no one knows about and could cost him everything.

If you're looking for a pure contemporary read with plenty of steam, this book will definitely hit the spot. It's sexy and swoony and packed with plenty of feels. It's also quite a bit slow paced and has the insta-lust/love thing going for it.

While I loved Weatherly and Tag's connection, it was just too quick for my liking. There wasn't enough relationship development for me to truly connect. Things get hot and heavy with these two pretty much straight off the bat, and doesn't let up. At times I felt their physical connection was overshadowing their emotional one.

The book is also pretty slow paced, but on the flip side, I was never once bored while reading it. I was glued to the pages from start to finish and enjoyed myself the entire time.

I was really let down with the super rushed ending in book 2 of a particular story arc that began with book 2. A part of me had hoped that perhaps this would be fixed or further fleshed out with book 3, but alas there was zero mention of it here. It was like the first two books didn't happen. Aside from cameos from Kiefer and mention of Jasper, that was all we got.

Ultimately it was the insta thing that brought down my rating. Their quick fall just didn't feel believable to me. I found Weatherly overly naive and trusting and that was a source of frustration for a large chunk of the book for me. Tag was fantastic; a perfect balance of dirty talker and sweet, so that was certainly great to read. The ending was a bit heavy on the cheese and the entire relationship moved too quick for my tastes, but at the same time it fit this couple.

If you're looking for a sweet romance with a swoony hero and plenty of steam, this will definitely hit the spot. My quibbles aside, I did still enjoy this book quite a bit and would recommend it to any fan of this author. One thing is for sure; M. Leighton can WRITE, and she most definitely gives good alpha.

HASH(0x9e4473e4) out of 5 stars Heartfelt, hopeful and so beautiful a romance April 5 2016
By Babel Tower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
M. Leighton never disappoints. I've read several novels by her and this is one of her finest examples. It's about social opposites who are attracted like magnets.

Weatherly and Tag, fairly original names. As soon as the story starts, they cross their paths in a paradoxical way as they should have never been fated at all. I love the effect that duty has on Weatherly as it pushes her to try and get free from it in daring to mix with a man supposedly beneath her but oh so bewitching in all other ways. Tag is there to provide an escape that blinds and sears her with glorious, rebellious pleasure.

One of the best things about the way the story develops is that these characters are two strangers to the reader, so their burdens and goals take shape to us at the same time as to each other to reveal secrets that will tear them apart, cruelly, which makes the plot grow in intensity very quickly.
A vineyard and winemaking are a scenery I truly enjoyed, and it's a beautiful stage for all kinds of passion. I found beauty in that, despite their misgivings, Weatherly and Tag cannot resist their feelings for each other. There is an undercurrent of trust and betrayal that turns their misfit relationship into a sharper focus. I really wanted their bond to succeed against social expectations, family pressure and killing secrets. And there's a sensuality on every page that's soft as a petal and as voracious as hunger.

I seem to dread and anticipate the moment when the drama is bound to rear its painful head. And this author knows how to deliver the fatal blows to the heart. When the truth, not all of it easy to foresee, comes out, it has a devastating influence on Tag and Weatherly. I suffered with them, devoured the emotional narrative full of profound pain and loss. So the ending was powerful and restorative for my aching emotions. Even though Strong Enough remains my favourite novel of the series, this is a poignant tale of second chance, the meaning of true love and its conquering strength. No romance reader should miss it.

(I'm happy to share my honest opinion about this ARC).

HASH(0xa14b0a2c) out of 5 stars Good book April 5 2016
By TracyVin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
***I received a copy of this book via Netgalley for an honest review. All thoughts are 100% my own.***

We met Tag way back in Strong Enough of this same series. We also hear of him in Tough Enough. Now we get his story. Weatherly just wants to get away from her family for a moment and think and the best place to do that is their vineyard. She’s being strong-armed into doing something she’s not overly keen on. That’s where she meets Tag. Tag works the vineyard and possibly loves that place more than she does. He also gives her a way out of her troubles.

Tag is an all or nothing kind of guy and though Weatherly is more cautious, she lets loose with him and jumps into it feet first. But there’s more to both of them than either imagined. I didn’t get as into this story as I did the other two, but I’m thinking it’s more of an issue I kept having with the download of the book. If I EVER stepped out of the book, I was having to RE-download it. Which became quite annoying after a bit. That’s no fault of Ms. Leighton and doesn’t reflect on her writing, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it potentially affected how involved with the book and characters I felt. I love these prologues.😀 Honestly though, I was hoping to see more Jasper and Muse. I think in series we find that one character and we become invested in them, and for me that was Muse and Jasper. I was hoping that we’d see them in a certain scene, but alas, no, no mention of them.

Ms. Leighton’s over arching storyline ended in the last book. I thought for sure that a certain someone who factored in the first (at the end) would at least make an appearance, for some reason never did. I guess I had hopes that that character had more meaning than he did. He just seemed like the perfect diabolical character. Don’t think, though, that because that storyline was over that this book was dull. It wasn’t. It just read really fast and felt really unrelated to the other two. So would I recommend this story? I would. You’ll be very intrigued by Tag from the two prior stories and you’ll be most happy you read him in this one.
