Chasing The Dragon is the first installment of a two part series of deception and betrayal where nothing is as it seems.
***Note - Chasing The Dragon is the first book in a two-book duet and is a spin-off of T.K. Leigh's USA Today Best Selling Beautiful Mess series. It is not necessary to have read that series in order to read this duet, but it will contain a mild spoiler from the third book in the Beautiful Mess series, Gorgeous Chaos.
T.K. Leigh has done it again with Chasing the Dragon, This time it's Alexander Burnham's brother Tyler Burnham, that has set himself up to be the heart breaker and have his heart and world torn upside down.
In Chasing the Dragon Tyler has a assignment with his family's security company to get information from Mackenzie Delano. Mackenzie, is a beautiful woman who has control of every aspect in her life., until she meets Tyler. She has a past that just seems to be her down fall with her relationships.
Tyler never intended to fall in love but was swept away by Mackenzie, every decision he makes torments him to proceed with the assignment. This book is filled will a little bit of suspense, passion, laughter, love and every page that has Tyler and Mackenzie together has you SWOONING for more. The Intensity that they have emotional and sexual takes you on a roller coaster of a ride.
There is something about T.K. Leigh's writing that captures you from the beginning and makes it impossible to want to put her books down. It's like a mental movie just being played in your head. The characters are so strong and it makes it's hard not to fall in love with them. I love that she leaves you with a playlist that you want to download during or after reading the book.
I felt giddy anytime Alexander was mentioned in this book, even though he came off a little pompous. I loved just the mention of Alex and Olivia from A Beautiful Mess series. I doubt that it would ever be too much for me to read about the Burnham men. The hardest part about finishing a book is the waiting. I will have to get my fix from other books before I can read the continuation of Tyler and Mackenzie in.... Slaying the Dragon.
