Title: Slaying The Dragon
Series: Deception Duet #2
Author: T.K. Leigh
Genre: Romantic Suspense / Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: October 13, 2015

I should have resisted him, but I couldn’t. My addiction to him was all-consuming, the high from his touch unlike any other.
Without him, I couldn’t focus, couldn’t think, couldn’t breathe.
With him, I hated myself for being too weak to fight the devil himself.
And Tyler Burnham was the devil.
He used me.
He lied to me.
But he loved me. And he still does.

Unable to stop thinking about the man who deceived her, Mackenzie Delano struggles to move on with her life and forget that Tyler Burnham ever walked into her life. But she still aches for him, despite his betrayal. Her mind is at war with her heart, a war that could be the difference between living and dying.

Tyler Burnham is lost without Mackenzie. As he contemplates the meaning of everything, he tries to find a way to prove that his feelings for her are true. That he would walk through fire to keep her at his side. That he would sacrifice it all…his career, his fortune, his life…to protect her.

The truth is, he may just have to…

Recommended for readers 18 & up due to strong language, explicit sexual situations, and graphic violence.

This is the second book in a two-book duet, which must be read in order. If you have not yet read Chasing The Dragon, please start there.

“Wait, Mackenzie!” Tyler cried out after me. “Tell me what you want me to say and I’ll say it! Letting you walk away from me once was the biggest mistake of my life. I won't do it again.”

I spun around just as I was about to open the front door. “You let me walk away from you?” I hissed, my teeth clenched.

“That’s not what I meant.” He ran his hands through his dark brown hair and I could see the desperation wash over him. “What I meant to say is all the lies, all of it… I’m so sorry I put you through it. But do you think I regret any of it?” His eyes grew more intense and impassioned, his chest heaving as he poured his heart out to me. “Not for a second.”

I glared at him, waiting for him to explain.

“If it wasn’t for all the lies, for my assignment, I never would have met you, so I’m not going to say I regret a fucking second of any of it. I don’t care what it takes to win back your heart. You can push me away all you want. You can tell me you’ll never forgive me, that there will never be an us again, but I will always come back for you. A hundred times. A thousand times. I will fight for us until I take my last breath.”

He stepped toward me, grabbing my hand in his, caressing my knuckles in such a delicate way that made me want to melt into a puddle.

“Please, Mackenzie…” He leaned toward me, brushing his lips against my forehead, kissing me so delicately, so lightly. “Serafina,” he whispered, “tell me what it will take and I’ll do it.”

Despite everything he had just said, I simply couldn’t let him back in. Relationships were based on trust, and Tyler took my trust and used it against me. I couldn’t forget that, no matter how much my skin yearned for his touch.

“You want to know what it’s going to take?” I asked softly, freeing my hand from his grasp.

He nodded, nervous anticipation radiating through his body as he looked at me with eager eyes.

“It’ll take one more time,” I murmured, opening the door. Peering over my shoulder, I saw his deflated expression. “It will always take one more time.”

My Review

This is the second book in this series and they must be read in order.  This book picks up what seems like a couple months after the last one ended.  They go back and fill in the details of what happens and refreshes your memory a little about how the last one ended.  Mackenzie found out that Tyler had originally approached her to try and get info on her father.  She told him that if he wanted to really prove that he loved her he would leave her alone.  So he does what she asks and it is the hardest thing he has ever done.  He wanted to go after her so badly.  His mother advises him to give her the time she has asked for.  Then his brother has another mission for him and tells him it is for his safety and Mackenzie’s as well. Tyler only agrees after he is sure Mackenzie will be looked after and kept safe.  Mackenzie can’t seem to get over Tyler and tries to go and talk to him.  That is when everything beings to spiral out of control.  She can’t get him by phone or text.  There is someone else living in his house and driving his cars.  She is beginning to wonder if Tyler was even real or if she made him up in her head.  Her friends assure her that Tyler was real and then she gets a surprise that cements that Tyler was real for her.  She finally emails him when she can’t take it anymore.  That email is what brings Tyler back.  He doesn’t care what anyone says anymore he needs to get back and make things right with Mackenzie.  This book was great.  The story and characters are fantastic.  This series pulled me in and I didn’t want to put it down till I was finished.  Mackenzie and Tyler have been through so much together and separately and they deserve to finally get their happily ever after together.  I was completely surprised by who was behind setting up her father and causing all this mess.  The mystery was a big draw for me.  I also loved reading about Mackenzie and Tyler love story.  I look forward to reading T.K. Leigh’s other books.
