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

Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?

How would I describe myself? Well, I’m Muse Harper. I’m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything I’ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.

That’s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn’t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn’t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I’d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don’t know if I’d have done things differently.

Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that I’m falling in love with and hope that he’ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get.



I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of Strong Enough for review.

M. Leighton is an incredible writer and one of my favorite authors, this is Leighton’s most SCORCHING & STEAMY novel to date!!! I was not disappointed and was surprised with this darker more suspenseful book from Leighton. The chemistry was off the charts, and twists made the book that much better.

Muse is worried about her father so she has decided to hire a bounty hunter to help her track him down. Her father has been lying low and she can’t contact him by conventional means so this is the only way she can make sure he is okay. She is recommended Jasper from a friend.

Jasper comes into Muse’s work and things for Muse will never be the same. Everything she thinks she wants and she thinks she can control she soon learns she is so wrong about. Jasper reads her feelings and desires and calls her on every single one. He doesn’t give her an inch. Jasper also doesn’t want to get close because of his past.

With so many secrets and attractions high, will they be able to avoid them or will crash and burn? Will Muse find her father and what is behind his silence? Can Jasper stop punishing himself for the past? You have to read this book to find out.

This was another amazing book by M. Leighton and I cannot wait for Tough Enough, book #2. I want to see what happens next especially with Kiefer Rogan the fighter. Strong Enough was suspenseful, extremely passionate and sexy! I am giving it 5 out of 5 stars.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you’ll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren’t roaming in that direction, she’ll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

About Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I’m convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.
