StrongEnough-Cover-250wHow would I describe myself? Well, I’m Muse Harper. I’m a twenty-something painter who loves red wine, quirky movies, and men with a fatal flaw. But that was before I met Jasper King. He became my fatal flaw. Eight months ago, I had a choice to make—abandon everything I’ve ever known to protect my family, or stay and risk someone getting hurt. I chose the former. My plan was working just fine until I found out my father had gone missing.

That’s when I met Jasper. A bounty hunter with the eyes of a tiger and the nose of a bloodhound, he was supposed to help me find my father. What I didn’t know was that meeting him was no accident. Hunting people isn’t all that Jasper does. And helping me was only part of his plan. I just wish I’d found out sooner, before my heart got involved. But even then, I don’t know if I’d have done things differently.

Now, I have another choice to make—trust the man that I’m falling in love with and hope that he’ll do the right thing, or run as far away from him as I can get. And is he strong enough to let her?

Is she strong enough to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met? And is he strong enough to let her?

WARNING: This review contains SPOILERS!
I have never been disappointed when reading a M. Leighton so I had big expectations for this book. Once again I was not disappointed! This book had a great story that kept me interested the whole time. There were some twists and turns that I didn’t expect and some that I hope for.
In the first chapter of the book you meet Jasper who witnesses a horrific crime that forever changed him. I thought it would make him maybe a little more compassionate. However I was wrong. It turned him into a closed off person who describes himself as a monster. He feels like he’s not capable of loving someone. What does Jasper do? Well he finds people even people who don’t want to be found. Now enter Muse. She needs someone found. Her father checks in with her every month at a specific time. This month he didn’t call and Muse knows something is wrong. Her friend hooks her up with Jasper since he is the best at what he does.
The attraction between them is strong and both continue to fight it. But sometimes attraction and fate are just too hard to fight against. Jasper doesn’t want to love anyone since he’s not capable of love and Muse just wants to find love. She believes Jasper is capable of love and loves him and accepts him for who he is. She begins to break down the walls he has built and when they come crashing down neither of them will ever be the same.
I loved following these two during their story. I loved Jasper from the moment I started the book and Muse is easy to love. She is perfect for Jasper and strong in her own way. I can’t wait for this series to continue because the other characters that came into the story intrigued me. I am anxious to see how their stories turn out and if they will find the kind of love that Jasper found with Muse.
