Focusing solely on his career, he is able to remain a detached observer of life… Until a case is dropped in his lap, forcing him to form an intimate relationship with a sharp-tongued woman in order to obtain the location of a man deemed an enemy of the State.
When Tyler finds himself falling for Mackenzie, will he be able push his feelings aside and recover the information he needs? Or will he put the mission and their lives at risk to follow his heart?
Chasing The Dragon is the first installment of a two part series of deception and betrayal where nothing is as it seems.
***Note - Chasing The Dragon is the first book in a two-book duet and is a spin-off of T.K. Leigh's USA Today Best Selling Beautiful Mess series. It is not necessary to have read that series in order to read this duet, but it will contain a mild spoiler from the third book in the Beautiful Mess series, Gorgeous Chaos.***
"Wait. Don't you have a name?" I called out once I found my voice.
"Yes, I do." He paused and winked. "Thanks for your concern."
He opened the door and left, my mouth agape as I received a taste of my own medicine.
However he is torn about his role... I knew there was something suspicious about him! What is brilliant is that T.K. Leigh has given us the opportunity to get inside Tyler's head, to hear his thoughts. It is fantastic to see the conflicting emotions, the fears and doubts that Tyler experiences. I do love getting into a man's head :) He is certainly a smooth talker and knows how to seduce the ladies ;)
"Mackenzie," he groaned. "Once you're mine, you'll never be satisfied with anyone else again. Every thought will be of me. Every second you're away from me, you'll feel me on your skin. You'll taste me on your lips. You'll hear my voice whispering all the things I want to do to you. That's a promise."
Each of them, Mackenzie and Tyler, hold secrets. Secrets that could potentially destroy their chances at a relationship or worse. There are twists and turns. And Mackenzie is being threatened... I don't want to reveal too much. Part of the fun is being swept away on this journey and reading the drama as it happens.
This book has just about everything, suspense, drama, intrigue, love, romance and holy hotness! ;) There are some hot and funny moments in this story. As soon as I finished this, I went and bought the Beautiful Mess series because I just had to know about the other Mr. Burnham. And trust me, he does not disappoint. Absolutely love this series and can't wait for the second book!
About the Author . . .
When she's not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
