May 13, 2014 rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
A rather weak storyline has been dragged out to a trilogy.

The first book, to me, was ok. The second book was awful. And this concluding book was only ok, to me as well.

I didn't really enjoy the trilogy because I kept waiting to feel the suspense, and didn't. Olivia started off being a strong independent person in book one, yes she had issues but was strong in her own way. But by book 2 and 3, she turned into something very un-likeable.

As for Alexander, well I'm surprised he is still alive becaus

I finally got to the end of this book but it was very hard going. The storyline was a good one but for me it was far too long winded and slow moving. There was so much pointless dialogue and eventually I ended up skimming, particularly the "sex scenes", I found them very weak and unbelievable. By the time I reached the end of the series the only characters that I liked were Cam and Mo, I had well and truly got pissed off with the main characters and had lost interest in them long before the end. ...more

Somewhat disappointed, and definitely shocked. While the author added a disclaimer in the beginning of the book regarding graphic violence, these scenes were most definitely not necessary to the integrity of this book and actually ruined it for me. I had been a supporter of this series and was anxiously awaiting its conclusion in book #3. The whole feeling of the story shifted in this book; the love scenes seemed unbelievable, too often and poorly written. I also felt that Olivia was out of char ...more

Epic summation of the whole series!
‎Love, hate, heartbreak, return to the roots, friends and enemies.

An unconventional story keeping its readers on their toes and on the edge of their seats.
Frustrating, blatant truth with outrageous details and even more angst.

The 'no-easy-way-out' approach bewilders and makes you question your choice and coaxes to check your masochistic tendencies.

Domineering, tough and relentless, Mr. Burnham doesn't disappoint - as always on guard of keeping us all safe and

This has been one of the best trilogies that I've read! From the very beginning it captures your attention. There are so many twist in this story you won't want to put the book down. I give this book 5 stars! Please, please read this book, you won't regret it! I know I will be reading it again! Can't wait to read more books from T.K. Leigh! ...more

I felt like so many ridiculous things happened in this book.

At this point, I felt like all of Olivia's loved ones should have just given up on her and she should have checked into a mental facility. She ran away so many times and for the most ridiculous reasons. I know that she lost people she loved in the past but I don't feel like her entire life was absolutely horrible. Throughout this whole series I felt like Alexander should have just told her the truth about who he was. But no. Of course

I really had to force my way through this last book. Not sure why such a huge difference between book 1 verses 2&3 but there is. Book one was magical, book 2 & 3 not so much. The felt forced and full of 'the same old romance book lines'. I loved Olivia in book one, she was strong and lost...towards the end just a whiner. Alexander's 'Alpha-ness' was so fake and forced at times it feels like 'sex talk' were thrown in last minute in attempts to make a scene hot and they were epic fails. So much pr ...more

This book was one of the best series endings that I've ever read. It was explosive, shocking, unexpected and how it played out and the situations that occurred had me holding my breath and on the edge of my seat! I loved the mystery involved and how right until the end, you were guessing who the bad guy was and would hey catch him in time?

A woman being kept in the dark about her past, and the man whose love knows no bounds, will do ANYTHING to keep her safe, even if drives her further and further away.

I have such a bitter-sweet feeling while writing this review, because I have absolutely LOVED T.K. Leigh's Beautiful Mess series from the very beginning. Now, we have come to the end of Olivia Adler and Alexander Burnham's epic love story. When reading a series that you have grown to adore, you always worry when the final book

Holy cow, I felt like I was put through the ringer to get to the end of this book. As with A Beautiful Mess and a Tragic Wreck, we are knee deep in suspense while being entertained by the sex on stick Mr. Burnham and his bedroom exploits.

After getting back together with Alexander, Olivia is happy, yet sill concerned about her heavy protection detail assigned to her by her fiancee. She isn't dumb, she realizes that Alexander is keeping something from her and the more detail assigned, the madder

Gorgeous Chaos is one book I had been waiting for, I wanted the answers to all the questions I had and I got them… OH BOY did I get them!
T.K Leigh has done an exceptional job ending this series and even though it’s the end I’m still so much in love with this series but I am sad it’s the end. T.K. Leigh really knows how to pull her audience in and keep us all captivated with the words she writes. I love the

‘Gorgeous Chaos’ finds Oliver Adler facing her fears of being abandon. She is ready to move forward with the next phase of her life with Mr. Burnham. Alexander is still holding on to all the secrets from Olivia’s past, all in the name of her protection. Little does he know there are enemies in his ring of trust. Olivia is remembering more and more everyday. The more she remembers the more danger she is in.

T.K. Leigh has done an excellent job of holding my interest throughout this entire series.

I don’t say this often, but the entire Beautiful Mess series is as close to perfection as a series can be. I was so conflicted between being happy and sad upon starting this book because I knew it would be the end of my time with Alexander and Olivia. There were so many questions to be answered and I wanted to know them, but I really didn’t want this adventure to end.

The conclusion to this series was AMAZING!!! I loved absolutely everything about Gorgeous Chaos. The passion and love between Oliv

Love this book. Where to begin. It's so hard. So many things happen and are going on. It was brutal getting to the end off this book. So many bad things happen to such good people I just didn't want to continue reading it. But it kept drawing me back. Olivia is as trusting as always and still never wants to listen to Alexander. This time there are horrible consequences for those actions. Alexander is as dominating as always, which I love. But his actions of not telling Olivia the truth cause eve ...more

Let's take a moment of silence here people because this book stole my damn heart. Writing this review will help me lick my wounds and come to terms with the end ... Olivia and Alex's beautifully crazy love story has ended. I hope I am not the only reader that feels emotionally invested and depressed when I finish something magical and this my friends ... this is magical.

For those new to the series, Gorgeous Chaos is book 3 and final installment of Alexander and Olivia's story. Please read the

It was truly an honor to have been chosen to beta-read Gorgeous Chaos. It took me quite some time to finally put my feelings about this book into words, as I just didn’t know how and where to begin and frankly, I didn’t want to acknowledge that this was the end of an outstanding series. To say that T.K. Leigh did a phenomenal job at concluding Alexander and Olivia’s story would be an understatement. Her exquisite writing truly pulls you in; you feel such an emotional connection to the characters ...more
Gosh, where do I start? Olivia and Alex, they are one of my most favorite book couples ever. After all the drama in A Tragic Wreck, I really thought they would move past that and that this book would be tamer in terms of the highs and lows with their relationship. Nope, not at all. As a matter of fact, A Gorgeous Chaos had surprises at every turn cloaked with danger, up until the very end. Perhaps the only thing that was a constant throughout the whole book was how solidified Olivia and Alex's l ...more

“I will never stop loving you. I’ve loved you since the day you were born, and I’ll love you until the day you die…”

The third book in the starts immediately where “A Tragic Wreck” ends with Olivia and the ever adoring Alex blissful and content. She is finally done running and was finally able to say the words and admit that Alex was her forever. After all that they’ve already been through, you would have expected them to be celebrating but one thing after another keeps coming up.

This series gutted me. This book was so emotionally charged and just kept you in a emotional spin. You felt for Alexander and at times cried for him and yet even though you understand why he did what he did you still want to agree with Olivia. There are times when Olivia gets on your nerves but that is because you know more than her so when you take that factor out you emphasize with her. The danger she is in is palpable and real although she doesn't want to face it.

Wow, just wow!! This book… where to start? I have been in love with this series since I received an ARC of A Beautiful Mess and as much as I couldn’t wait for A Gorgeous Chaos, I was a little hesitant, because I didn’t want this series to end. T.K. Leigh did a fabulous job of bringing this story to a close, and as hard as it was during some parts, she did a brilliant job of telling this story and putting all of the pieces together.

I received a complimentary copy for an honest review.

This is the third book in this series and it should be read that way. Do not read this review if you haven’t read the previous books.

The romance and suspense continues in the final installment of the Beautiful Mess trilogy. Olivia and Alexander are ready to move onto the next phase of their life together but Alex continues to keeps secrets from Olivia, secrets that threaten their relationship,
