“A PHENOMENAL WRITER.”—Bookish Temptations


“INSANELY INTENSE.”—The Bookish Babe

“FREAKIN’ HOT!”—Nette’s Bookshelf

AND “SERIOUSLY SCANDALICIOUS.”—Scandalicious Book Reviews

Product Description

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.

He’s a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart?

There was a time when I had everything–a wonderful family, a bright future. Love. But all that was taken away in a single night, torn from me like flesh from bone. Since then, I’ve hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. I’m comfortable in the shadows, where no one can see my scars.

Kiefer Rogan literally took my breath away the moment I met him. MMA champion-turned-actor, notorious playboy, charming to a fault—he’s everything I vowed to avoid.

But he just wouldn’t stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I should’ve tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldn’t have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that they’re usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most.

I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too.

A definite change of pace from the first book, Tough Enough was less suspense and more of an emotional ride, it grabbed my attention immediately.

Katie Rydale's past broke my heart. She is a survivor but she doesn't come across as strong by any means when the story begins. She is a broken woman and at times she frustrated me, I wanted her to be stronger.

Enter Kiefer Rogan, the incredibly sexy MMA star turned actor, filming in a small town. Where he meets Katie and his single minded pursuit of Katie was fun to watch. It takes a lot for him to earn her trust but once he does, it's sexy as all heck!

Katie has to overcome her past and open herself up. Keifer's will stop at nothing until she does, though he is respectful of her limitations. The tension was freaking awesome... Like a ticking time bomb you wanted to finally explode.

HASH(0xa2ce9510) out of 5 stars Sexy, edgy, and full of emotion! Nov. 3 2015
By Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
~*~ 4.5 STARS ~*~ Sexy, edgy, and full of emotion! A stellar addition to an exciting and scorching HOT series! This author is a master of emotion in her romances. Every page packs an emotional punch like no other. Even though this lacked the amount of suspense that was in the first book, it was no less entertaining. A change of pace for sure, but it still flowed so nicely and the heat factor was through the roof. TOUGH ENOUGH is a beautiful love story about two people who find beauty past all of the scars. They learn from each other that the scars they bare are what make them who they are, and they shouldn’t be ashamed. It’s incredibly touching and had me shedding some heavy tears every now and then. With ever scar they find, the deeper they fall for each other. The heat, the want, the delicious torture, made this story a fantastic read!

I highlighted the hell out of this book. Every quote spoke to me. Every word jumped out at me and embedded itself in my heart. My heart ached. My heart soared. The pit in my stomach grew and grew from the intensity of it all. This is a love story with such a strong message. It’s real. It’s raw. It’s beautiful. I didn’t expect less from the incredible M. Leighton. This installment of the series just made me even more excited for this series! TOUGH ENOUGH was a powerful and all-consuming love story. It’s about fighting to survive. Fighting to live. Fighting to love. It’s about seeing the beauty in tragedy. It’s about perseverance and hope.

“Can’t you just trust me? Just a little? Can’t you let me love you?”

“Please don’t disappoint me.”

“I’d rather take a beating than disappoint you.”

That is just a small taste of what is to come. There is so much love, tenderness, and beauty in this book. M. Leighton touched my soul with this one! This is a story that is sure to please Leighton fans and series devotees alike.

HASH(0xa2ce9564) out of 5 stars ROGAN IS THE BEST Nov. 3 2015
By Teresa - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am in love with this book. It was so freakin good and I want to keep Rogan all to myself. This is definitely one of my favorite M. Leighton reads to date. I love all of her books, but this one is very special for me. I just loved the story and the characters and the romance and everything about it.

I’m starting with Rogan because I just cannot contain myself when it comes to him. Rogan is a fantastic character and I fell so hard for him. I kinda felt like I was cheating on Trick as I was reading this one. Anyone who knows me knows that Trick from The Wild Ones is my favorite Michelle man but Rogan gave Trick a run for his money. Rogan was just everything I love. His is strong, funny, charming, determined, persistent, sweet, caring, and the list goes on and on. Rogan is such a good guy and the way he pursed Katie was so heartwarming. He saw something in Katie that drew him in and he knew she was worth fighting for. Oh and just icing on the cake, Rogan is an MMA fighter, actor, and former soldier all rolled into one. Cam we say yum?

I loved Katie too. She is so resilient and I love how she has kept going despite her past. She has lived through some truly horrible things and she is so brave and strong and I truly admired her strength. I also liked her wit and sense of humor and I also really loved that her favorite show is The Walking Dead. That right there proves she has impeccable taste.

As with any M. Leighton book the romance was fantastic. Rogan and Katie have incredible chemistry and the steam factor in this one is off the charts. Michelle has a knack for writing great steamy scenes and this book was no exception. Rogan and Katie are ridiculously hot. But outside of that, their romance is simply beautiful. They both have scars, internal and external, and the way they interact and truly understand one another is beautiful. I loved how deep their connection went and that it was formed on so much more than their physical attraction. The thing that truly drew them together is the way they understood one another in a way that others couldn’t.

Tough Enough was a great read and I know this is a book I will be revisiting again. Rogan has stolen my heart and I don’t think I’ll be getting it back.

HASH(0xa2ce999c) out of 5 stars Great read! Nov. 3 2015

Tough Enough is the second book in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series.

I was so excited to read this because the characters are very intriguing as we got a little glimpse of Rogan from Strong Enough. I was hooked after reading the Prologue. The story captivates me from the start.

Kiefer Rogan is the handsome actor who’s known to be a playboy and a fighter and Katie Rydale is a very shy but beautiful makeup artist that was assigned to Rogan during his contract as an actor for a cable series they are making.

It was really entertaining how Katie fought to show her attraction to Rogan because of her past that really affected her relationship towards others in her present life. A dark past that she tried to hide even to Rogan because she’s afraid of getting hurt and receive pity once she open up herself to trust again. But Rogan managed to impress her not knowing that slowly he's getting close to Katie's heart.

I love how M. Leighton writes a very heartwarming story that will make you laugh, cry and fall in love all over again. She never fails to give her readers something to look forward to, an unpredictable twist in the story that leave me aching for just a matter of time. Tough Enough is an inspiring story. Two people who survived from a tragic and horrible past that found their reasons to fight and live. They are both tough enough to fight for each other and to savor a beautiful life ahead of them.

This is such a great read! I highly recommend this book.

HASH(0xa2ce9984) out of 5 stars MUST READ! I love Rogan! Nov. 3 2015
By Lauren R. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Rogan + Katie.....EPIC!!!
Where to start? M. Leighton just literally blew my mind with this story.
I loved loved loved how Rogan is a man who when he sees something he wants, he does what he has to get it. He fights, he swoons, he makes you laugh, he shows his dark side, his shows his romantic side... he is just a perfect rolled up package of AWESOMENESS!!!
Yep he is my new Book Boyfriend. Knew it as soon as M. Leighton introduced him to us in Strong Enough. I love me a cocky man who is not afraid to let you know what he wants...
Katie is one strong woman! With her hidden secrets that she knows how to mask but for some reason the only person who she can't mask them from is Rogan. He knows there is more to her than what she is pretending to be and he is determined to find out.
I will never think of a Snickers Bar now without thinking of Katie and Rogan...
IS it hot in here or is it just me??? Talk about the smoking!
Rogan & Katie's chemistry is super hot, flirtatious, funny, loving, enduring.
Both of their stories will capture you, move you & make you want to find that love that just by their smile like Rogan's, they make any day a better one!
