Four beautiful days. Three steamy nights. One breathtaking love.

Levi Michaelson.

He wanted four dates. Four opportunities to prove I could trust him. Four chances to change my mind about him.

I agreed.

Probably not my smartest decision. He was everything I knew to avoid
gorgeous, charming, sexy as hellbut I couldnt help myself. When he touched me the whole world disappeared. I should’ve known I could lose myself to him, that he could be the one man to destroy me.

I guess it’s true what they say
some things are too good to be true. And Levi Michaelson might just be one of them.

It's opening night for Evie's first ever gallery-showing.
She's super nervous and scared and clumsy. ☺
That's how she ends up meeting him.
The guy with the amazing voice and the bluest of eyes.
He's immediately intrigued - even though he's there with a date.
But he wants to get to know Evie.

After lots of flirty & funny banter, Evie agrees to four dates. He'll only be in town for a few days, so he has to convince her that he's a great guy after only four amazing dates.

Challenge accepted.
Even though he's not really interested in something serious - he just has to use this chance.
And even though Evie thinks he couldn't seriously be interested in her, she's way too charmed to resist...

What will happen with Evie & Levi???
Will there be a HEA??

Will everybody die at the end???

Or will there be a horrible Cliffy???

I'm not telling you that of course ☺


So adorable!
I really had no idea what to expect when I started reading.
I thought it would be a quick/cute/sexy romance.
And it was cute and sexy.
But it was so much more.

Levi and Evie have been through a lot in their lives, but they're still standing and still hoping and dreaming and living. I just loved them.

You start reading and you immediately want to fast-forward to see if they will be each other's forever-ever-after-person. But at the same time you want the story to slow down, because it's so beautiful to watch them get there. To watch them fight for what they want - or what they thought they would never have or didn't deserve.

We have so many funny and adorable moments and lots of sexy ...

... and romantic moments...

"Levi's Blue."
That will forever be the color of happiness in my mind.

and of course some very serious and sad moments too...

We already noticed it in the title - Levi's BLUE - that the story has a lot of colorful details in it. Michelle describes things so beautifully and real and ... it's like you can see, smell, feel everything that's described. I'm not a fan of audiobooks, but I think I would love to listen to Levi's Blue!

Amazing romance with amazing characters - you'll laugh, cry, and awwww a LOT!

...and you might want to hit one or more characters over the head with your kindle a few times. ☺
I just loved it!!!

LEVI'S BLUE was such a beautiful romance! Full of colors and feels and laughs and awwws and ugly cries... Absolutely unputdownable - you just need to know if Evie & Levi will get their HEA! Run to your nearest amazon to find out! ☺  

Was there something I didn't like?
Hm, not really. I just had the impression that the story took place 30/40 years ago... I know I'm weird, but it felt a bit old-fashioned here and there. No idea why...and it doesn't make the story bad in any way. It just felt like something a little bit older to me.
Oh, and also... it was a tiny bit too predictable. But I prefer predictable over way too ridiculously created plot-twists. ☺

ARC received from author for an honest review

I was not sure what to expect when I picked up Levi's Blue, but being a M. Leighton book, I knew it would be good.

And it was more than good.

From the first word to the last I was drawn into the of Evian de ChampLain - Evie.  She was not our usual heroine. I tell you what, she really is the master of making lemonade out of the lemons life has thrown her way.  Made me feel a bit bad about the things I whinge and whine about in life (come on, we all do it!)

From the moment we meet Levi I was hooked.  There was just something about the man that I couldn't help but adore.   And even though part of his and Evie's storyline was quite predictable, it was how we got there and where we were taken afterwards that kept me intrigued.

There were some great secondary characters, but there were also some characters that I wanted to slap with my kindle.

Ms Leighton has created a beautiful, colourful, wonderful world that made me see things in a completely different way.  It has made me want to (when it finally stops raining here) take the time out to just sit, close my eyes and listen to the world.

Levi's Blue is a beautiful and at times heartbreaking romance, and has left me wanting more.

I can't wait to see what Ms Leighton brings us next.


Stalking Michelle:

 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 cozy comfort of her office.

About Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I'm convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.
