Brave Enough (Tall, Dark, and Dangerous #3) M. Leighton [Review + Giveaway]

He was the most charismatic man I’d ever met. Strong, tough, brave. Bold as hell. Something told me Tag Barton could have anything—anyone—he wanted...and he wanted me. It didn’t matter that he was wrong for me in practically every way possible. It didn’t matter that my father would hate it.
 I couldn’t resist him. Even if I’d known who he really was and what he was really capable of.
 When he suggested we pretend to be engaged, I thought he was the answer to all my problems. He wasn’t. And, in his wake, he left nothing but scorched earth and me, just another casualty of my father’s war.
 Can I believe him now when he tells me he loves me?  Or is he nothing more than a beautiful, breathtaking lie?

4 Jumping In Stars
Brave Enough is a standalone and is part of the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series.  This series packs a punch and each are different.  This is Tag and Weatherly’s story.  This one is set on a vineyard. I know, romantic right?

Tag is a sweet man who loves wine. He loves working on the vineyard with his mother. I thought Tag’s character was really tame, but completely masculine. I loved his love for his mother. It was very cute to read. He has a leadership quality which commands a presence.

Weatherly is from a wealthy family. Her father is over bearing and she’s trying to find something in her life. She’s kind of stuck. When she first meets Tag, she’s instantly smitten and drawn to him. But Tag isn’t the type of guy she should be with. She should be with someone at her level, but she doesn’t really care about that even if her father will disapprove.

Tag and Weatherly’s relationship is really adorable. I liked that Weatherly was just fascinated with Tag and his passion for wine.  The relationship goes into overdrive and next thing you know they are engaged.  It will make you smile from ear to ear.

“I never saw you coming. I never thought I’d meet someone like you, someone who could bring me to my knees with a look or a touch. I wasn’t prepared. But now I am.”

The book is fairly descriptive, which reflects the author’s writing style. She loves to set the tone and build up the characters. You get a good sense of Tag and Weatherly’s feelings towards each other and also inner struggles.

“Sometimes a perfect stranger can be great sounding board. No attachments. No judgements. Nothing to fear.  Just someone to listen.  And maybe even help.”

There’s a lot that goes on with the book and it creates tension between the couple, you will never know where it will lead. There are plenty of surprises. If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.

I got to meet M. Leighton at a book signing when she came down to Dallas. I say this a lot, but I'm being really honest. She's a SUPER nice person. She was so personable and talkative. I was really shy and she kept the conversation going. I'll never forget the big smile on her face and her warm presence. I'm a fan for life. More photos HERE

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author M. Leighton is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.
