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 wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the ...more

message 242: by Marie (last edited Sep 28, 2012 05:52AM)

Marie I just finished your new novel 'Down to you' and I have to say I LOVED IT. Oh my days, and that ending? You do not understand how excited I was to learn there was going to be a book 2!!
And I cannot wait to devour it like I did this one.

Cash, I have to say, you couldn't have made him any hotter, you have made it impossible for me to ever look at a guy the same again. I mean Cash- who the hell can ever live up to him? He's is the definition of perfection. I envy your creation!

This book was unlike anything I've ever read before, the emotions I experienced when reading this.. Your writing and the detail you put in to this didn't go amiss it was recognised and appreciated.

I cannot credit you enough for this book, I originally gave it four stars, but you know what? I've re-read this twice now and I was crazy it deserves five and I'm going to change it right now.

I cannot wait for next book seriously. Normally I'd be all like 'hurry up and go finish it!' Or '2013 really?' And be all depressed and moody. But I don't mind the wait because I know that it will be worth it, and no matter however long it takes you as long as I get to read about Cash again I don't care. I couldn't put this one down and I know it will be the same for the next book because this, girly, is an amazing series! You did flipping damn good!

Thanks for sharing this novel with us. It deserves all the hype and good reviews it picks up. <3

I'm thrilled you enjoyed it and I'm so glad I went ahead and published it:) I love that you felt so much while reading it. There is truly no greater compliment and I appreciate it more than you can imagine!!! Thank you. Truly. And I'm hoping for early 2013 for book 2;)

message 239: by Mistress

Mistress I finished Down To You yesterday and I haven't been able to stop thinking about the characters. I have been rereading the book since I finished. I don't ever reread a book as soon as I get done. It is interesting to me to go back and really understand *certain characters* mindsets, if you know what I mean. I don't want to give anything away, I'll just say that I LOVED the twist. You had me going through all sorts of emotions... excited, sad, happy, hot, frustrated, inflamed, and laughing out loud. The shaken and stirred part was hilarious! I have laughed over and over with that one. All of the emotions you brought out in me shows how awesome of an author you are. I love your work and I cannot wait until the next book comes out! Any hint to when that might be? Please let it be soon... this is me begging... I don't care to beg. :) I'm so looking forward to reading what happens next in the lives of your characters. Great job with Down To You. I'm impatiently waiting for a lot more adult books from you.


Cassandra Rector riley I just finished Down to you , and holy freakin crap that was a great book lol ! I loved it kept me drawn in the whole time I didn't put it down until it was finished , I have to say its not what I expected at all it had a great twist to it ! I loved it can't wait till the next one. ;)
