The scorching tale of one girl and two brothers in a love triangle…that’s not.

Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white.

But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.

Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her.

Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them.

Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire.

She wants them both.

And they want her.

How will she ever choose between them? (Goodreads)


Olivia is determined to keep her nose to the grindstone.  She definitely doesn’t have the time for another “bad boy”.  So when she meets Cash Davenport, she instantly knows that he is as bad as they get.  He is insanely sexy, arrogant and worst of all, tempting.  He is the polar opposite of his twin brother, Nash, who just happens to be the devoted boyfriend of her very annoying cousin, Marissa. Nash is a respected professional and is equally as hot. He also has the same Davenport charm and intensity that Olivia can’t seem to stay away from.

Olivia soon faces that she is attracted to both of them but Cash wants her.  And what Cash wants, Cash always gets.  Olivia knows she has to choose.  Should she follow her head or her heart?

I have been a long time fan of M. Leighton so when she decided to venture into the New Adult genre, I knew it was going to be incredible.  Down to You has all of the ingredients for a seriously scorching book – bad boys with tattoos, motorcycles and sexual tension that can’t be measured using existing technology. (I may never be the same after the infamous bathroom scene!)  The story has a twist that I figured out before the big reveal but it only added to my anticipation to see how the characters developed through it.  I would highly recommend this to fans of both New Adult and Romance.  The next installment, Up to Me (The Bad Boys #2) has already been released so what are you waiting for?
