Friday 56 (#2) A Beautiful Mess

This is a fun meme to do hosted by Freda's Voice.  All you have to do is grab a book (any book will do)!  Turn to either page 56 or 56% in your ereader.  Find a sentence or two that grab your attention and then post it and link it here.

I'm a day late with my Friday 56, but only because yesterday was so crazy.  So here's what I picked out for my selection this week:

from A Beautiful Mess by T.K. Leigh
About the Book: 
What happens when you lose everyone that promised they would always be there for you? How can you protect the few pieces of your shattered heart that remain?

Olivia Adler is a woman with a troubled past. After losing her parents at the young age of six and being raised by an uncle who she lost years later, she refuses to get attached to anyone, including friends. For the past decade, she has been able to remain unattached to any man, too worried about losing someone to get too close. Until Alexander Burnham walks into her life one night and changes everything. But he has issues of his own. And he’s keeping a secret that could turn Olivia's world upside-down. Will Olivia let Alexander in enough for him to get close and protect her from a force threatening her very existence, or will she push him away, scared of letting Alexander in, in order to protect her heart?

A Beautiful Mess is the first installment of a three part series sure to captivate the heart with a story of secrets, courage, and love.

My Notes:
The ratings on Goodreads for A Beautiful Mess are all over the place.  It seems you either love it or barely like it, so I'm hopeful that I'll be among the loving it crowd.   I've moved it up to near the top of my TBR list and hope to get it very soon so I'll be able to let you know if I'm in the loving it crowd. 


  1. Sounds like a beautifully written book!

  2. Did you one it? I'm intrigued…..
