Product description

Product Description

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes the second book in a dark, sexy contemporary trilogy.

He’s a fighter who never loses, but is he tough enough to win her heart?

There was a time when I had everything–a wonderful family, a bright future. Love. But all that was taken away in a single night, torn from me like flesh from bone. Since then, I’ve hidden away in my second-choice job as a makeup artist. But I prefer it that way, actually. I’m comfortable in the shadows, where no one can see my scars.

Kiefer Rogan literally took my breath away the moment I met him. MMA champion-turned-actor, notorious playboy, charming to a fault—he’s everything I vowed to avoid.

But he just wouldn’t stop until I opened up and let him in. Maybe I should’ve tried harder to resist him. Maybe I shouldn’t have fallen in love with him. Because I, of all people, know that everyone has secrets. Scars. And that they’re usually ugly and painful and destructive to the people we love most.

I just never guessed that they could be deadly, too.

I could not put this book down! It was such an awesome story of a woman who has had to overcome an extreme past to find herself again. She finds Rogan who also comes from a troubled past and together they find a love that is out of this world!
The suspense that was in this book kept me on the edge of my seat the entire book! I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Tough Enough is the second book in the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous Series, and oh so deelisheeeous. I think I might have liked this even better than the first.
Katie Rydale works as a make-up artist for a studio in the small town of Enchantment. She's retreated from the glitz and glamour of LA, but hasn't left the industry completely. It's a compromise that works for her until she has to do make-up for one Keifer Rogan. MMA champion and rising star in Hollywood. She expects him to be attracted to her blond goddess friend, but his eyes lock on hers and hold her captive. She has a feeling that her quiet little world is about to be shaken up.
Rogan knows his time as an MMA champ is limited. When his agent suggests doing a cable series, he agrees. Meeting shy Katie is a definite perk of the job. He's had his fill of Barbie dolls, he wants some spice, now. She's not impressed by him, but he is mesmerized by her. He recognizes something in her that he sees in the mirror every day. Rogan makes it his mission to get her to open up, but what he uncovers may put their future in jeopardy and inflict more pain on the woman who’s had enough to last a few lifetimes.
Keifer Rogan had me at, “Mornin', ladies.” He spots Katie after overhearing her bad mouthing him and he's hooked. I love it! The smouldering looks and the determined chase, it's so irresistible. Couple that with the fact that he’s ex Black Ops and embroiled in a race to find a killer before another of his team can be targeted, and you have a stunning page turner.
I found myself wondering about the other characters we met and the loose ends from Strong Enough. The suspense in the story doesn't factor in until the last few chapters, and then a whole lot of things happen in quick succession.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 4 November 2015

Tough Enough is the second book in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series.

I was so excited to read this because the characters are very intriguing as we got a little glimpse of Rogan from Strong Enough. I was hooked after reading the Prologue. The story captivates me from the start.

Kiefer Rogan is the handsome actor who’s known to be a playboy and a fighter and Katie Rydale is a very shy but beautiful makeup artist that was assigned to Rogan during his contract as an actor for a cable series they are making.

It was really entertaining how Katie fought to show her attraction to Rogan because of her past that really affected her relationship towards others in her present life. A dark past that she tried to hide even to Rogan because she’s afraid of getting hurt and receive pity once she open up herself to trust again. But Rogan managed to impress her not knowing that slowly he's getting close to Katie's heart.

I love how M. Leighton writes a very heartwarming story that will make you laugh, cry and fall in love all over again. She never fails to give her readers something to look forward to, an unpredictable twist in the story that leave me aching for just a matter of time. Tough Enough is an inspiring story. Two people who survived from a tragic and horrible past that found their reasons to fight and live. They are both tough enough to fight for each other and to savor a beautiful life ahead of them.

This is such a great read! I highly recommend this book.

Rogan meets Katie on the first morning he is on the set of a show he is doing. He hears two women talking while he is waiting for her in her make up room. Katie does not have too many flattering things to say about him while her friend's words are the opposite. Once he see's her he is completely intrigued by her beauty. He slowly gets to know her each morning while she is preparing him for his set that day. He see's she is guarded and there is sadness in her eyes. He can tell she has been hurt badly. Rogan recognizes these things because his past has caused those same things in his life, He has gone by the motto since being in the army "fight to survive, fight to live". Katie does not want to like Rogan but she just feels a connection with him. She has been burned by beautiful men in her past and she cannot let that happen again, she barley came back , from the last man in her life.
Rogan is the charming, crazy good looking ufc champion/actor, special forces solider...he knows he is good looking and women fall at his feet. None of the women really know him though, his famous ex girlfriend is still trying to cling to him for publicity reasons only. Rogan sees and feels something in Katie that he cannot ignore.
Katie is quiet, keeps to herself and away from men like Rogan. Her past killed her and she is just trying to survive this life now. She knows beautiful men like him do not care about anyone but themselves. She cannot get close to him even though she feels and sees something in him that gives a connection she has never felt before.
Grab this one...M. Leighton tells a wonderful story of these two who are more alike then they know and the fight they have on their hands to fight their past demons to be able to find each other. Rogan is the sweetest BBF who remembers all the little things that Katie doesn't think people see or notice about her. Beautiful story in a series of standalone's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fight to Survive 4 November 2015
By Shelley Jarin - Published on

Tough Enough is the second book in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous Series. Strong Enough should be read to fill in some questions you might have while reading the book. While Strong Enough is full of dark, angst, action, Tough Enough is more on the light, emotional side. But of course, it wouldn’t be a Michelle Leighton book if there’s no hot steaming scenes in it.

Kiefer Rogan is the best MMA fighter that’s now becoming a Hollywood star. Being a celebrity is his best cover as a part of Delta 5. And being the best fighter, showing the world how tough he is hides his vulnerability that he too has some skeletons hidden for the love of family.

Katie Rydale has been burned literally & figuratively in the past. Learning the hard way that fame isn’t everything, she’s now content in hiding behind the shadows. That is until Rogan shows up at her makeup chair and tilts her world upside down. Making her believe more in herself, giving her the confidence she lost, making her tough enough and learning that there is someone who will love her for who she really is.

I love their story, how Rogan patiently woos Katie. Taking his time to know her, make her come out of her shell. Both struggling on their past which unfortunately is intertwined. How they overcame the curveball that was thrown on them. I love Rogan, how he also makes me laugh, he’s the total opposite of brooding Jasper. I love seeing Tag & Jasper in the story, having Reid & Jasper’s mom’s death brought to light. Though i didn’t expect that kind of ending for the Delta 5 problem but this is an M Leighton book, she must be planning to drop a bomb on the last book - Brave Enough.

I could have wait to dive in and read this book. It was everything that I thought it would be and more. When Katie meets Rogan she is taken back by him and tries to convince herself to not let him get to her. Katie has been through enough that she pushes everyone away. Rogan has his own secrets and yet he wants Katie more then he thought possible. Nothing comes easy for them, between jealous ex's and someone she never wanted to see. A tragic night for Katie let's her guard down and what she was hiding shows Rogan. She can't see why he wants her. You feel the connection they have, you feel the emotions of what they go through and I know when I read Michelle's books I won't ever be disappointed in what I read. Will their live withstand there past's? I love Rogan and how so sweet and patience he was with Katie. I can't wait for Brave Enough, I know it will be another hit.
