Haunted by her past, Olivia Adler flees Boston for a beach in Florida, leaving everyone behind, trying to shut the world out. Remaining a relative recluse in her self-imposed prison, she tries to turn everything off, wanting to feel nothing. But a new acquaintance won’t let that happen. After being away from Alexander for a month, his voice constantly ringing in her head, reminding her that her inability to confront her demons will not only destroy her, but also him, can she really be expected to want to feel again when it brings nothing but pain?
Back in Boston, everywhere he turns, Alexander Burnham is reminded of Olivia… His Olivia… He tries to dull the ache left in his heart the only way he knows how… in the bed of a beautiful woman. But Alexander isn’t about to lose his Olivia. After a clue comes to light regarding Olivia’s whereabouts, can he convince her to return to Boston with him? When a force that has laid dormant for months resurfaces, can Alexander still protect her from the unknown danger? And when Alexander comes face to face with a shadow of both his and Olivia’s past, will he be able to tell her the secret that is threatening to tear them apart?
A Tragic Wreck is the continuation of T.K. Leigh’s heart-breaking Beautiful Mess series.
A Tragic Wreck is the 2nd book in the Beautiful Mess series by T.K. Leigh. If you are not familiar with this series the story is about Olivia Adler, a young woman with a mysterious past that meets handsome businessman Alexander Burnham. This is an intense series filled with steamy romance scenes. The Book Looks I am featuring is a scene from a formal charity event that Olivia and Alexander attend. Olivia inherited a lot of money from her parent’s deaths but she doesn’t live an extravagant life. So with the help of her best friend, Kiera, they put together this outfit:
She looked at the dress that Kiera had chosen. It appeared simple enough and that was what Olivia wanted. Something simple, yet elegant. And the dress fit the bill. Sliding the silk over her head and pulling up the zipper, her jaw dropped. The deep champagne shade accented her olive tone, making her skin seem to glow. The gown draw attention to her best features, with a deep V in the front and an even deeper V in the back, showing off he rather sculpted back. It clung loosely to her hips before falling to the floor, a slit running up almost the entire length of her right leg.
When she was done, Olivia stood draped in simple red jeweled accessories, contrasting perfectly with the deep champagne hue in the long elegant dress. Carefully stepping into a pair of champagne-colored heels, Olivia knew she had found the perfect dress.
I love this look! The dress may be simple but it’s glamorous. I love the pop of red that adds some color and a sexy overall look. The dress is too low-cut for me but if I had the sexy Mr. Burnham as my date I would take the risk. What do you think?
