BAD BOYS Series by M. Leighton - Review

Down to You (The Bad Boys #1)
The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not. Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white. But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins. 

Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her. Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together. 

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them. Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire. She wants them both. And they want her. How will she ever choose between them?

Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.

Olivia finds bliss unlike any she’s ever known in Cash’s arms. He sets her skin on fire and melts her heart right inside her chest. Unfortunately, their happily ever after is short-lived when a shadow from Cash’s past threatens to turn their world upside down.

Dangerous people from his father’s world have discovered that Cash holds information that could put them away for a very long time. And they’re willing to do anything—and hurt anybody—to get it back. Giving it up means Cash must choose between the life of his father and the life of Olivia.

Having nearly overcome her wariness of bad boys, Olivia’s trust is shaken when this new threat arises. Now she finds that Cash is not only a danger to her heart, but his family has associations that are a danger to her life as well. She soon discovers that there are some situations in life where trust is a girl’s only option. And this is one of them. If she’s to live, she must trust Cash with her life. But to Olivia, that’s much, much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart.

This series is absolutely fantastic! Both books are packed with excitement, twists, and of course, sex. The story is extremely intense and exciting, and the author carries these elements throughout both books. The story builds on itself in a natural way that keeps the reader’s interest and doesn’t get repetitive.

The best part about this series so far is definitely the characters. First off, I love Olivia. I love her inner turmoil and the fight she puts up with herself. There are so many aspects of her past that factor into her initial reaction to Cash and Nash, but her character builds, learns and develops throughout.

Cash is my favorite character by far. I think he’s the most complicated by far and most interesting. There is a major twist in book one that reveals just how complex he is, and in book two he character really begins to shine and grow. I’m really looking forward to how he grows in the future.

The sex in these books is, well, totally hot! The scenes are well written and believable, which is always important with sex scenes. The author does an amazing job writing the dirt. And makes it pretty darn incredible!

Everything For Us, Bad Boys book 3, is coming in September and I’ll have an early review for you all very, very soon. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for Cash, Olivia and the gang.
