Title: Everything For Us - Bad Boys Series #3
Author: M. Leighton
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 3, 2013
When it comes to passion this hot, it’s all or nothing.
Olivia Townsend’s wealthy cousin Marissa had everything a girl could ask for—a great job, a privileged life, and all the friends she wanted. Or, at least, all the friends money could buy. But one case of mistaken identity has turned her privileged world upside down.
An abduction gone wrong lands her right in the lap of the sexiest, most dangerous man she’s ever met. To Marissa, he’s an enigma, but one to whom she’s irresistibly, inexplicably drawn.
With him comes a new world of freedom and passion, of dark shadows and dangerous secrets, a world where nothing is what it seems—except for the blind passion that Marissa can’t escape—or maybe even survive.

**Warning: If you haven't read the first two books in the Bad Boys Series, firstly, Why the hell not?? Secondly, STOP right here and go read them before reading these reviews, as they contain spoilers from the previous books.**
What can I say?? I'm totally floored by the third book in the Bad Boys series. Michelle, you've done it again! I had a headache from crying and it took me hours to come down enough to get to sleep.
If you, like me, loved Cash Davenport in the first two books, you may be disappointed that there's not a lot of Cash in this book (don't panic he still features in it) and that's because Everything For Us belongs to Nash.
Down To You and Up To Me are totally, and rightly so, Cash's story and are defined with certain songs that make your eyes light up and heart beat faster as you link them up with 'those'scenes. There is hotness a plenty and a lot of tension, drama with the involvement of the Russian mafia and the twists, turns and jaw droppers associated with Michelle Leighton.
Everything For Us is something completely different. Yes, you get the hotness, oh boy do you? I nearly had to hook up my fan to a generator the scenes were so hot. Beer anyone? *sighs*.....ahem, sorry I drifted off to a certain scene! But, what you also get is one hell of an emotional love story. EFU concentrates more on the emotional side and deals with how Nash coped during his seven years apart from his family.
Marissa was a selfish, nasty piece of work in the previous books but here she is a changed person after the kidnapping and by the end of the second chapter, I was already liking her. She strives to be a better person than she was and some of the scenes are heartbreaking, my heart actually hurt for her.
Nash, oh Nash, cue the sighing!, is hell bent on revenge for the life and family that was cruelly taken from him and he'll not let anything get in his way of getting justice for his dead mother. However, he didn't bargain for Marissa getting under his skin.
"I realized that no matter how tightly I closed my eyes, no matter how much I tried to ignore it, no matter how much I wanted her to be..." His voice is so quiet, I have to strain to hear him, even in the silence. "She just wasn't you."
EFU is by far my favourite out of the Bad Boys Series and it's safe to say Nash has pushed his twin from his #1 spot on my top ten book boyfriends, sorry Cash but you do come a very close second!
I lived through every emotion that spilled from each page...the anger, the tears, the tense drama and the heat and passion that Michelle writes so very well. She has a great knack of grabbing your attention from the very first word, weaving you into the story and keeping you there til the end. In fact, more often than not, you are still feeling the after effects days afterwards...I know I have been there on many occasion.
Michelle, I eagerly await your next project.
This story carries straight on from Up To Me (The Bad Boys #2) and I could not wait to get reacquainted with the swoon worthy Cash Davenport. This all quickly changed when my bad boy eye starts wondering and lands on....wait a minute he looks like Cash but meaner, rougher and damn, a whole lot sexier! If that's possible (and I can tell you now) HELL YES it is. In walks Nash!! I don't think I have swooned, dribbled, sighed, cried, stepped outside (more times than not) to cool myself down, as much as I did with Nash, he is now totally my number 1 book boyfriend with Cash slightly underneath (me) *winks* I wish!!
I have got to admit I found Marissa in the last books a total bitch from hell, and she made me grit my teeth at the way she treated Olivia and how self centred she was, well I can say she totally redeemed herself in this book, and buy the end found myself loving her character as much as Olivia's (yes that much).
This story is jammed packed with things we associate the Davenport twins with, hot, steamy sex, with suspense and crime that adds to their bad boy image. Twist and turns that keep you turning the page, as the plot thickens, and wanting to delve in to Nash's trousers (sorry I mean mind).
I love Michelle's style of writing, which always pulls you in from the first page, and leaves you wanting more when you have read the very last. I truly can say from the heart that this book #3 in The Bad Boy series has totally floored me and that truly takes some doing, as 1 I now love Nash more than Cash, 2 writing a third book that tops the previous two!! But hey we are talking about Michelle Leighton who is the queen of giving us a damn hot sexy man, with a equally sexy story. I'm now waiting and looking forward as always to reading one of Michelle's next books.
Finally, he lowers his head to mine, his lips brushing softly, sweetly over mine, "I don't know what to do with you," he whispers. "Love me" I answer, reaching behind his head to pull his mouth more firmly against mine
