Up to Me: The Bad Boys, Book 2 | [M. Leighton]

Up to Me: The Bad Boys, Book 2

For Olivia, romantic bliss has never felt as right as it does with Cash. Unpredictable, except when it comes to satisfying her desires, Cash has a well-earned "bad boy" reputation, but he’s turning his life around with the one woman who accepts him for who he is. Until strangers from the past turn Olivia and Cash’s world upside down. What they want is something only Cash can give them. And if he doesn’t deliver, then they’re taking the one thing that Cash values the most. Olivia always knew that in falling for Cash she was likely to get burned. But this new threat is beyond anything she imagined....

Publisher's Summary

M. Leighton’s "freakin’ hot" Down to You was just the beginning. "Up to Me…has even more shockers in store!" (Examiner.com)

For Olivia, romantic bliss has never felt as right as it does with Cash. Unpredictable, except when it comes to satisfying her desires, Cash has a well-earned "bad boy" reputation, but he’s turning his life around with the one woman who accepts him for who he is.

Until strangers from the past turn Olivia and Cash’s world upside down. What they want is something only Cash can give them. And if he doesn’t deliver, then they’re taking the one thing that Cash values the most.

Olivia always knew that in falling for Cash she was likely to get burned. But this new threat is beyond anything she imagined. Now she has to trust Cash with her life - and for Olivia, that’s much easier than letting go and trusting him with her heart.

    "An interesting twist"

    Up to Me has an equal blend of hot sex, witty banter, drama, shocking twists, sexy new characters, lots of action, and very bad guys. There were parts that could have been better. For some reason, I felt some parts were rushed. Regardless, I enjoyed it for most part. I will continue with the third book because I’m interested to see what M. Leighton comes up with next for these characters.

    "Wow! It knocked my socks off…"

    This 2nd installment of the Bad Boys series was amazing! I loved this book! For such a short listen it was packed with so much action, emotion, twists & turns, love, sex and so much more. It’s hard to write a review of this book without giving away any spoilers, so I will just say it was AMAZING! If you liked the first book, then you have to get this follow-up. It will not disappoint.

    I can’t wait for book 3!!

    "Well written and fun to listen"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a awesome series. Lighthearted and fun to listen to. It had an element of surprise that I did not expected. Cash and Olivia's relationship continued to growth. I love that Olivia is strong and independent. She did not let anyone pushed her around. I can't wait for the 3rd book.

    "These Bad Boys are really something..."

    Oh yes... there is a twist in here... I forgot I was at work when the secret was reveled and had people looking at me crazy. Cash was so sweet and protecting to Olivia. I love all the side characters Ginger is my girl. She had me LOLing. No need for a credit its less than $8. Happy Listening!

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "OH MY OH MY WHAT A BOMBSHELL"

    Pheweee it certainly had plenty of action, drama, suspense, mystery, plot twist and was an emotional sexy roller-coaster as Olivia started to loose faith in bad boy Cash which was slightly annoying because he did NOTHING to warrant her distrust (and if she doesn't want him I know a few of us who would!). Some really really bad boys turn up - on both sides of the drama and I'm looking forward to hearing more about them soon I hope.

    I really can't comment much more because I'd give some of the plot away but there's plenty of everything packed into this - but it's not really a stand-alone listen so, if you haven't listened to book 1 treat yourselves - you won't be disappointed.

    Worth a credit? Would have been a YES but for the price I just bought it.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Up to Me?

    The smart & charming Oliver in the book 1 turns into a dumb, insecure and annoying girlfriend.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. Leighton again?

    Not sure if I even want to finish this series. I really love the first half of the book 1, after that it just went down hill. I had a difficult time finishing the book just because all the actions seem so unreasonable.

    M. Leighton should stay with romance story instead of suspense/thriller type of story.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd and Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

    Kate Rudd did a good job as Olivia

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "More of a 3.5"

    To be honest I didn't like this one as much as the first book in the series. The last half of this book was the best part and if the whole book was that good it would of gotten a higher rating from me. I will be getting the third book in the series because I think it may be as good or better than the first book.

    As far as using a credit for this book, the sale price is less than $10 so I just buy it instead of using my credits, but if you got the first book then I'd say get this one to prepare for book 3.

    "No surprise"

    Every "surprise" in this series can be scene by page 3 (in this case minute 7, I guess). It's better than the first ook because, thankfully, it's not all about Liv and Cash. Sex is still great but if they aren't getting it on, you wish they would shut up. Hanging on to this series just because I think the final book will redeem everything.

    Story
    "Torn"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not - I find Olivia's irrational and semi-stupid character annoying. The story is OK and entertaining enough but Olivia's character drags it down to where I don't think I will continue listening to this series - especially when there are so many books I'd rather listen to that are better. So I couldn't recommend this to someone else when I'm not even sold on the series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Have Olivia stop being irrational and also, perhaps, listen to the people who have experience with danger instead of insisting she (who has had no experience) knows better. And perhaps discuss her relationship concerns with Cash instead of internalizing it. But of course doing something as common sense as communicating properly would've taken out a major part of this story - god forbit

    "good finish"

    I love how the story played out across the three books, great wrap up to get the story of what happened to Nash during the time away and see more of his true character. I am not sure how I feel about the change in Marissa, it is sudden but drastic things had happened to her. The only issue I really had with the story is the narration, its not that it wasn't good it was, but if was what I was use to for Cash and Olivia so it was hard to adjust to hearing them as Marissa and Nash.
