Probably not my smartest decision. He was everything I knew to avoid—gorgeous, charming, sexy as hell—but I couldn’t help myself. When he touched me the whole world disappe

This was my second book I’ve read by this author this year and while I didn’t love it as much as the first one, I really, really enjoyed! 'Levi’s Blue' was that kind of read that sucks you in from the beginning, that kind of read that gives you so many feels capturing your heart more and mre with every single chapter, that kind of read that tells a unique, beautiful love story that will stay with you for a while.

Truth be told I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. All I knew is that I was intrigued by that blurb and I had to read it. M. Leighton always creates some of the most memorable alpha males. I read Down to You years ago, and I still remember every detail of the book.

A literary masterpiece where every facet of details, raw emotions, and beauty are captured by the stroke of M.Leighton’s stunning and heartfelt prose. M.Leighton has once again treated her readers to a story where life, beauty, sadness, and happiness are splashed onto a canvas in her latest new release, Levi’s Blue.

Levi's Blue is the kind of book that has so many layers to it that you never stop peeling them away. I couldn't get enough, couldn't stop reading. Going in, I thought that this was going to be a bit of a fluffy, feel-good kind of light romance. Yes, there was tons of delightful banter that made my cheeks hurt from smiling, but that wasn't the defining emotio

Overall Opinion: This was an enjoyable read. It won't go down on my favorites shelf though, and I'm not quite sure exactly why it didn't fully click for me. I enjoyed both characters. I did feel like we could've gone a little deeper into the characterization, because for some reason I felt like we just skimmed the surface of who they were. Yes, the H messes up at one point. BUT he gives probably some of the best grovel I've ever read -- so I forgave him. There was a good bit of OW/ex f

BEAUTIFUL. We all say that word to describe something or someone we find absolutely stunning. Every now and then while reading, we might think of that very same word if the story is magically written and we literally stop and take a minute to breathe in the flawless words. This story was BEAUTIFUL. It was PASSIONATE and heartbreaking at times but you know what I loved the most? It was UNIQUE and I cannot tell you how much I appreciated that.

4.5 "I LOVE Levi and his Levi blue skies" stars!!

This story was chock full of feels. So many feels. I couldn't help but sympathize with Evie's (h) plight. As her story started to unfold, my compassion for her only grew. I cannot imagine what this must be like (sorry for being vague but I don't want to give away the plot), but the author created an incredibly fierce character that I couldn't help but like. Evie was beautiful, strong, talented, adaptable and a great maker of cold beverages.

M Leighton is a fantastic author. I have always admired her writing. I admire her talent of invoking all sorts of emotions when i read her books. This book was no different. There was an amazing connection between the main characters. I can't say much in this review without giving this story away but this book is so tender and heart-rending. I LOVED Levi. Despite his devastating, mind shattering secret, i loved the way he held Evie with such reverence. And what a fantastic world i was in

*le sigh* First and foremost I have to talk about how absolutely breathtaking the writing was. I absolutely loved it! I'm always a big fan of writing that's infused with any kind of art (painting, sculpting, etc...), and this was no different. Her writing was by far my favorite part of this novel and I'm very excited to read more from this author. I mean, just read these...

I have always gravitated toward M. Leighton. Something about her love stories always feel a bit real and are always a tad steamy. Her last few works have developed so much in terms of depth and character progression. Levi's Blue is another unique story from her mind that delivers another love story that is sweet and moving but complex and emotional.

I loved the way Levi didn't treat Evie like she was blind. How he described things to her made me swoon. He was so freaking sexy!!

Loved that Evie wasn't a bitter person because of what happened to her. She made many lemons into lemonade. She was awesome!
Levi and Evie were super hot together. Damn Levi was yummy!!!

This was my first read of Michelle Leighton's in a few years. But some of her earlier works are among my favorite books ever. I think my personal fave of hers is Everything for Us.

Evie is a unique and amazing artist. I appreciated her spunk, wit, and tenacity. She is perceptive, kind, passionate, and sweet. She enriches everyone's lives she touches. But she has some trust issues and challenges that make her insecure about men.

We all know I’m a certified M. Leighton fan girl, so I’m sure this isn’t really a surprise, but I loved Levi’s Blue. Levi’s Blue is vintage M. Leighton. It feels like some of her earlier contemporaries, yet it still stands out. It’s very much its own story but it has the feel of Down To You and The Wild Ones. It’s steamy and heartbreaking and swoony and emotional and lighthearted all in one.

Probably the best thing about the book is the characters.

I totally devoured this book from start to finish and completely melted as I fell head over heals for Levi..
But as much as I love Levi.. Evie is that heroine that inspires you.. She is rock solid yet carries that small bit of insecurity that we all have..and once you read this you will see and understand exactly what I am talking about.. She is such a dynamic, complex character that brings you in to her world and has you FEELING everything she is going through...

Levi and Evie's story will have your 5 senses on HIGH alert. You will breathe, touch, feel, hear and see their world come to life off the pages as you read. Colorfully, emotionally & beautifully captured story of what it's like to FEEL every emotion you ever envisioned of finding love you thought you could never have.

Levi's Blue is a beautifully told love story that filled my soul with immeasurable bliss. I'm actually having a tough time even coming up with the right words to describe the poetic nature of this book. It is so much more than just a romantic tale with a sexy hero who is the only perfect fit for his heroine. It's words that you can't help but savor since the writing is off the charts spectacular. In essence, a seemingly usual tale of love, made to be the loveliest kind of unexpected.

*Spoiler ahead*

I had a few problems with this book.

First off, because the heroine was blind there had to be more explanations than usual, and that's not my coppa. The fact that there was one line of speaking following by pages of explaining and imagining things inside the heroine's mind, made the story drag and slow and boring. So much "talking about" and not doing things.

Second, the heroine was kind of annoying. This mentioning every other sentence that she's blind and cripple.

Review by Lisa Kane

Levi's Blue is one of those books that make writing a spoiler free review a challenge. Evian de Champlain (Evie) is an artist just on the cusp of being discovered. For the last thirteen years she has honed her craft and her paintings are breath taking. At her first exhibit, she meets Levi Michaelson, a charismatic man who intrigues her.

My painting is all I have. For years, this has been it. And for years to come, this will be my life.

Actually I give the book 4,5 stars.

I'm so glad the author is back. With The Empty Jar she couldn't reach me. As sad as it is, and let me say I really understand what it's like to loose your father, but I couldn't finish it. It was too depressing and just no.

Now there's Levi's Blue and I'm so happy M. Leighton was able to write it.

It's a beautiful story about a woman, who lost her biggest dream to wander in darkness. Left alone, except for her best friend Cherelyn.

I knew nothing, and was overwhelmingly surprised and pleased.

This story is so much more than boy meets girl.
This is a feel-good story, writing wrongs, healing, finding peace and love.

There's so much beauty, and laughter!
