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

Strong Enough is the first book in M. Leighton’s new Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series and it sets the tone for a thrilling, emotional rollercoaster ride of mystery and romance that will completely enthrall you. I was immediately captivated by the storyline and fully invested in the characters and how their lives would unfold. I literally could not put this book down — there may have been a few threats and dirty looks thrown around anytime I was interrupted. In my defense, everyone knows I’m a complete book whore and it’s a dangerous thing to try and steal my reading time.
Muse has been thrust into a situation she doesn’t understand, hidden away without any reasoning — the only thing she knows is her father sent her away for safekeeping. When the plan goes awry, Muse will be tested to the limits and have to lay her trust and life in the hands of a stranger.
It’s a promise. An invitation. A wicked temptation.
She is such an amazing character, despite her situation she is strong-willed, feisty, and caring — self-sacrificing. The way she runs headlong into danger to protect the people she cares about is as honorable as it is stupid. Definitely admire this character; she will stick with me for a long time.
He is heat, he is gravity. He is the center of all my senses. He is consuming.
Jasper is part of a secret military unit — they don’t exist and neither does he. He completely gave up his life and his family in order to protect them from who he became. Everything about Jasper screams danger, but he has a protective streak that can’t be ignored. There are many, many moments when his character comes into question and I really wanted to knock his head into a wall. And then he does something that redeems himself and I fell in love all over again. He’s a perfect balance of hero and enemy. You’ll love him, hate him, love him, hate him — Muse really said it best …
And he gives me the feels. All of them.
Jasper and Muse are the very definition of opposites attract. When they come together it’s fire and ice in the best possible way. I loved how intense their relationship was, it was like a punch in the gut followed by a tender hug. I never wanted their story to end, I really hope they will make an appearance in the rest of the series.
She was like the warm glow of a fire to a man whose heart turned cold a long time ago. She was like everything I never knew I wanted, served up with big green eyes and a sexy-as-hell smile.
Strong Enough is all-consuming — phenomenal storyline and characters that you’ll never want to let go of. The perfect start to what is sure to be an amazing series. I can’t wait for more and will gladly devour any M. Leighton book sight unseen.
I feel like a lamb being led to the slaughter. I’ve never wanted to be slain until now.
