“He’s movement and light and color on the canvas of my mind. He’s want and need and courage in the scarred pieces of my heart. He’s what I can’t have and what I wish for, what I should reach toward and what I should run from.”
This is my first book by M. Leighton and it was a good one. I absolutely adored it, even if I found it a bit predicable.
What I loved from the very beginning was the banter between Levi and Evie. There was never any awkwardness between them. Levi is instantly drawn to Evie’s beauty and wants four dates to prove he isn’t like the other men she is used to.
Evie has her doubts and thinks that someone as perfect as Levi won’t be able to handle being with a blind woman. What she doesn’t know is that he has his own flaws and secrets.
“I know as surely as I’m standing here, as surely as I feel his body heat gushing toward me, that this man could destroy me. That this—whatever this is—could be devastating for me.”
The attraction between the two is instant but what I liked is how they took their time before actually sleeping together. Nothing was rushed, making their relationship seem real and genuine.
“I’m thinking you could be the end of me. The bright, beautiful firework that ends me. That sets me on fire. The flame that burns a brilliant blue and gold and white at the center of me.”
“I don’t want to be the end of you. I want to be the beginning…”
‘Levi’s Blue’ was both heartbreaking and heartwarming. It had a nice balance of emotion and humor. Evie is a heroine you will both admire and adore, and Levi will straight out make you swoon. This is one you don’t want to miss.
