Book Review: Gorgeous Chaos (Beautiful Mess #3) by T.K. Leigh

Here we are, at the end of Alex and Olivia's journey. So far, they have been on quite a bumpy ride and this is no different. If anything, it's about to get harder. There are several things we can always count on with these two: 1. hot sex and 2. angst. On the damn angst. They sure don't like to do things the easy way, do they? My frustration level was pretty high once again with them between Alex's secrets and Olivia's running. I wanted to smack them both (repeatedly) and then lock them in a room together to get everything out in the open. Followed by that hot sex I mentioned. But they wouldn't be Alex and Olivia without all that crazy now would they? And hell, I don't want them any other way!

As they start planning for their wedding, the people after Olivia start kicking things up a notch. They have run out of patience and want what they think she has. These are awful people who don't care who they hurt in the process. Will Alex ever tell her about her past? Will she even know what it is these people are looking for? There is a brilliant twist here that I did not see coming until seconds before it smacked me in the face. It was totally an "oh shit!" moment for me.

T.K. has given us a great conclusion for Alex and Olivia in Gorgeous Chaos that just makes you feel. It wasn't easy and it hurt a lot at points, but it was the perfect fit for these characters. Once you read this, and you WILL read this (waves hand like Jedi), I want to you to come back and tell me if you figured it all out!

Note: this is not a stand alone novel. All books in the Beautiful Mess trilogy should be read in order.

As days go by, Olivia is slowly starting to remember her past and Alexander realizes it’s only a matter of time until she puts all the pieces together and figures out who he is…

And who she is...

But if she remembers, her life could be in even more danger than it already is. And Alexander cannot have that happen. When shadows of Olivia’s past threaten not only her life, but also those around her, will Alexander finally put Olivia’s needs ahead of his?

Gorgeous Chaos is the explosive conclusion to T.K. Leigh’s Beautiful Mess series.
