Review of Down to You by M. Leighton

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance- Please be advised that this book is NOT YA friendly, not even in a New Adult category!

The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not.

Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white.

But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.
Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her.

Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them.

Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire.

She wants them both.

And they want her.

How will she ever choose between them?

Yes, How will she ever choose?!

Wow, okay. The first book I read from this author was The Wild Ones and it was so good, I snatched this one up right after. Lord, even better! Is that even possible? Apparently so. Let me just say, this book is hilarious. I think I spent the first half grinning like a freaking loon, and once, I laughed outright. I couldn't help it. There is no shortage of painfully awkward yet wildly humorous moments.

The characters:

Cash is, like...words fail me he is so hot. And his brother, Nash....yeah, just wow. How is a girl to choose? Unfortunately, that's just what Olivia has to do. Gorgeous bad boy or his equally gorgeous brother who is seemingly the total package. There's just one catch, he's taken. Or is he?

This story has a wicked twist that I honestly didn't see coming until about 70% through. I think it has something to do with the blinding wall of male testosterone and raging female hormones that clouded my judgment until it was too late to turn back. Hey, at least I am being honest here. I don't envy Olivia's situation. Okay, I do. I totally do. I know I probably come off as some gushing teenager, so I will leave you with this: I have no complaints. None. The story is well-developed, the characters are delightful, delicious, and dangerous for your mental health (but in a good way!), and you really can't afford NOT to read it. I don't even know why you are still reading this. Go get the book! 

Down to You is available for purchase on Amazon!
