Everything for Us
When it comes to passion this hot, it's all or nothing. Olivia Townsend's wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for--a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down. An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she's ever met. To Marissa, he's an enigma, but one to whom she's irresistibly, inexplicably drawn. With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems--except for the blind passion that Marissa can't escape--or maybe even survive.

Our customer reviews
I can't tell you how excited I have been for this book to release. I totally fell in love with Cash Davenport In Down to You and Up to Me, and I have been dying to read Nash Davenport's story in Everything for Us. The story picks up where Up to Me leaves off, focusing on Nash and Marissa, and is told from both of their points of view. Marissa has always been kind of a b*tch, but after her abduction, she has realized the kind of person she has been, and wants to change and never be that person again. She also realizes that she wants the dark, sexy Nash Davenport more than anything. Nash Davenport is the darker of the Davenport twins, and once you know his history, you will understand why. He is hot beyond measure, sexy, exudes dominance, doesn't care what anyone things, and is kind of scary. He wants one thing...revenge...something he has been looking forward to for the past 7 years. The last thing he is interested in is a relationship. He's never cared for a woman for more than one thing, and he doesn't make a secret of that fact, yet something about Marissa keeps drawing him in, and he isn't quite sure what to do with it. The walls that Nash has put up around his heart and emotions to survive have created a hardness in him that has allowed him to be able to cope and focus on his goal, and Marissa is beginning to chip away at them. Nash also has major trust issues, which is totally understandable to. In addition to all the secrets he has, he has one that specifically involves Marissa, and Nash isn't sure what will happen when she realizes what that is. The chemistry between Nash and Marissa is electrifying, and the sex, well M. Leighton knows how to deliver in that area and the Davenport boys, they just ooze with sex appeal and hottness. We also get to see plenty of Cash and Olivia in this book, which was awesome. Nash is so wounded and hard, and Marissa really surprised me with how understanding she was of him and his needs. Whether she wants to or not, she is losing her heart to this man, which is something that she may or may not survive. Theirs is not an easy journey by any means. Meanwhile, Nash and Cash are working towards helping their dad, which requires Nash to make contact with some dangerous people from his past. As badass as Cash is, Nash is an even badder badass if that is possible, and I totally loved him, but Cash will always be my favorite. Everything for Us is filled with suspense, angst, drama, and HOT romance. I love the way M. Leighton takes these two characters, especially Marissa, who has come across as unlikable and unlovable up to this point in the series, and makes you totally fall in love with them both, rooting for them and their relationship, as they go through so much in this book. I loved the ending. I don't know if there are any plans for future installments in this series or not, but I would love to see Gavin get a book. Everything for Us is a must read for all M. Leighton fans, and I thoroughly enjoyed it and most definitely recommend it.show moreby Ellen Gault
