Book Review: A Tragic Wreck (Beautiful Mess #2) by T.K. Leigh

Where do I start with this book? Sigh. This is probably one of the most painful books I have ever read - definitely in the top five. If you were frustrated with Olivia's actions at the end of A Beautiful Mess, you are going to want to strangle her while reading A Tragic Wreck. And then after that you will want to smack the hell out of Alexander. These two make so many unnecessary mistakes and are basically slowly killing each other. It is pure agony watching it all unfold. T.K. Leigh exquisitely tortures the reader for what feels like the majority of the book. This was my second time reading A Tragic Wreck as I was lucky to be part of a beta read a while back, and I cried just as hard this time around. And I'm not talking about silent tears, oh no, this is an ugly cry kind of book. A.G.O.N.Y. But there are also some very happy moments and of course hot as hell Alexander Burnham style sex. That man's mouth and dominance are delicious!

"Where are my panties?" Olivia asked, searching the bedroom for where Alexander had thrown them during their intense moment.

"You're not getting them back, and don't you dare go clean up either. I want my come dripping down your leg, reminding you that I'm the only one allowed to do that."

There is no happily ever after just yet, and I have my doubts if these two can ever have one, but I will say that this ends on a better note than book one. Plus there is also a hint of a major blow up and danger to come to drive your anticipation up another notch.

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 heartbreaking "Beautiful Mess" series.
