EARLY REVIEW: Everything For Us by M. Leighton

The bad boys of M. Leighton's novels Down to You and Up to Me, are back. Marissa had everything a girl could ask for until a case of mistaken identity lands her right into the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met.
 Title: Everything For Us (Bad Boys #3)
Author: M. Leighton
Publication Date: September 3, 2013

When it comes to passion this hot, it’s all or nothing. 

Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.

An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.

With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.


Everything For Us is by far my favorite Bad Boys novel of them all! I adore Cash and Olivia, but Marissa and Nash’s story exceed all my expectations. The story line of Down To You and Up To Me is carried on through Everything For Us, but this time we get Nash and Marissa’s POV.  The passion, risk, and danger are all higher than ever, and M. Leighton does an amazing job of bringing these two extremely complicated characters to life.

Nash has some serious issues to work through, and his tough exterior, rough edges, and refusal to let himself feel sucked me in to his pain and self-conflict. I felt as though I was right there beside him as he struggled through his feelings while fighting the fight of his life. I knew he was full of rage and dying for revenge, but getting to see all this through is eyes was just fascinating. To see just how deeply affected he was by everything that happened in the past was amazing. Another bonus, we get to see a very significant past event from his perspective; and let me tell you, it’s a game changer!

As for Marissa, I really did not like her in books 1 and 2. She’s a cold-hearted bitch! But she grew on me in Everything For Us, because the changes her character undergoes are pretty impressive. Getting things from her perspective was interesting to say the least. I literally felt the change in her even though this is the first time we get her perspective. I think the author did an amazing job making Marissa relatable and believable. There were plenty of times I wanted to curl up and cry with her. But she’s one tough cookie.

The one thing I absolutely can’t leave out of this review is the sex! I mean, Cash and Olivia were pretty intense, but Nash … OMG! *fans self* The passion in this book is intense and oh so hot! I kind of wanted Nash to rip open my bathroom door and … well… you’ll have to read the book to see where that goes. *blushes* Let’s say it’s all very… sexy. And not at all tame or boring. While Nash and Cash are twins, they certainly have their own styles… even in the bedroom, ahem, or bathroom. Nash is definitely a panty soaker and you’ll be dying to spend the entire day between the pages with him.

So, if you haven’t read Down To You and Up To Me yet, you better get on it! This whole series is a new favorite of mine, but Everything For Us is one you really don’t want to miss.
