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.

Tough Enough is book two in the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series. This could definitely be read as a stand alone, but I suggest reading the first one Strong Enough 'cause it was really good.

The cross-over references don't really occur until towards the end of the book and you will get another piece to their puzzle from the first story. I have a feeling their "mission" isn't quite over yet.

Keifer Rogan is a MMA fighter turned actor; he still participates in MMA matches. He is also part of the Special Ops team (from book one). Working on his newest movie he meets the beautiful and enchanting makeup artist Katie.

Katie has just as many scars as Keifer; inside and out. She tries to keep Keifer at arms length but he slowly seeps in and she finds herself starting to live; piece by piece. And they are super hot together...

But that all changes when she finds out her past is working with Keifer. Can they both survive this? Will they choose the other over their pasts?

Get to one clicking!!

Tough Enough was the second book in the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series.  Although its apart of a series it can be read as a standalone. But I would suggest reading Strong Enough the first book because it was fantastic as well!  I loved this book and would give it a huge 5 stars!  I think any book that M. Leighton has written has captured my attention and captivated me to the end, this book was no different.  It is full of angst, passion, engaging lust and tongue drooling sexy scenes.  
There is a very emotional twist to this story which will bring you to an instant heartache for the heroine in this story Katie.  She has been through so much in her life and now she hides behind a veil of hair and clothes that don't show much skin... she is scarred mentally and physically and she doesn't let anyone past her barrier she has made for her own personal safety and sanity.  But everything will change with she meets Rogan the sexy movie star/ fighter.  

The chemistry between these two will instantly heat up your pages and keep you flipping till the end... but this story would not be an M. Leighton book without some twists and turns in the story line and man oh man you want to find out all the details so get to one clickin now!    Thanks for another riveting tale and I can't wait for the third book Brave Enough! 

Tough Enough by M. Leighton is the second book in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous Series and wow! This book is filled with such broken heartache, an intense love, and a fight like one you can't imagine, a fight to live, really live instead of just survive. This book is a 4 star read for me and I highly recommend it to others. The emotion behind each word and gesture from Katie and Rogan will have your heart breaking at points for one or both of them, soaring with the quiet love that blooms between them and smiling at the ending that Katie and Rogan truly deserve. I can't say enough how much this book truly touched me.

Katie lived a quiet life in Enchantment as a make-up artist for a television show. When Keifer Rogan, early for his call time, sits in her make-up chair for the first time, Katie is not prepared for the feelings and emotions that will follow. Determined to live a life in the shadows, due to a tragic event that changed her life forever and forced her to begin again, she wants nothing to do with the glaringly handsome, charming and sexy Rogan. But Rogan won't stop until he impresses her, makes her his. 

Keifer Rogan is a former Delta Special Forces, professional fighter turned actor who survived and is determined to live life by his rules. Taking care of his handicapped brother, a casualty of war, and following the advice of his agent has landed him in the incredibly small town of Enchantment. Never did Rogan expect to find Katie or the feelings that she has evoked within him. Determined to make her smile, laugh and enjoy life out in the open instead of slinking back in the shadows, Rogan begins a slow seduction that seems innocent but is anything but. His end game is to make Katie his, for the short amount of time he is in Enchantment and hopefully in the long run of forever.

When Katie finally gives in to the feelings that she has for Rogan sparks fly and the heat between these two characters, despite each of their visible and non visible scars jumps off of the page with every word M. Leighton writes. Enveloping the reader into the story, you root for their happiness, until the unthinkable happens. A past that Katie has worked so hard to stay away from collides with a past the Rogan has yet to reveal to her. When these two pasts collide, the reader is left to wonder, can they really make it despite everything that is in their way? You will have to read to find out. And I promise you won't be disappointed. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!!!!
