Dane James worked my stepfather’s fields. He was the boy next door. 


From the moment we met, we were star-crossed lovers—always wanting, never having. We loved each other for most of our lives, but right from the beginning destiny had other plans.  She knew we would fall in love.  She knew we would fall apart.  Over and over again, like the curse of a recurring nightmare.  Or the hope of a familiar dream.  

Our past was tumultuous.  Our future was bleak.  But the one thing we always had was the beautiful now.

Until that was taken from us, too.

This is what early readers are saying:

✩ "This is the best book that I have read in 2017 yet!!"  -- Heidi

 I truly wish I could give this one more five stars, I would definitely give 10 if I could. This is one of those books, you just know from the beginning is going to pull at your heartstrings and it really does. I've read of ton of books this year and this one just moved to the top of my favorites list."--Catherine
✩ "The Beautiful Now is exactly that - Beautiful. It's love story of epic proportions."  --  Courtney
✩ "What I loved was that their story transcends the span of 22 years and shows that love can last forever even when all the odds are stacked against you. That there is always a way even when we think all hope is lost. That even when we do what we think is best and hurt the ones we love that their is forgiveness to be found and second chances are a blessing not to be taken lightly. And when faced with the harsh realities of life, love can still prevail over all."  --  Jennifer

✩ "I started reading - and I kept on reading. I couldn't stop. It was all so heartbreakingly sad and beautiful and sweet and frustrating and I just could not stop."  --  Bianca

Okay, I will not cry...I will not cry.

M. Leighton has a very unique way of writing that captures you and I found that I had read so much during the night that I was due to get up soon.  Oh but make no mistake my eyes were bloodshot and red from the tears. 

The way that she created this story it is told over a span of time. Present to the past and back again. Oh man, my heart ached for Brinkley. Here is this woman who is devoted to her daughter Celina and would do anything for her and my heart is aching even as I am typing this, seriously I can't stop crying.

And what would a great tale be without an epic love story? Believe me, when you begin to read about Dane you are intrigued, here is this kid who doesn't give a crap about what others in this small town think of him. He is the outsider because he doesn't have money but dang he makes a lasting impression, at least he did in my heart.

Reading from Brinkley's POV from the present and back in the past it helped me to see the love that flowed between the two. Why she felt the way she did. There were times I did get mad/frustrated because Brinkley's mom was such a mean lady when Brinkley came back with her daughter Celina. I was like LADY WTF? And then I learned about Celina and those water works....back again.
Being a mother I could relate to Brinkley and wanted to do everything she could to make Celina happy. I would go to the ends of the earth for my children and that is exactly how Brinkley was, now her mom.....

I have not liked people in books before whoa this lady was something else. I mean okay I get you want a better life but to marry a rich man just for his money? Gross. Then you tell your daughter to go out with these entitled pricks who don't respect her and say well if you lose your virginity to him no biggie and if you happen to get pregnant you'll be set and taken care of....WHAT? Nope. You need to read to see how this one plays out because you all know me...NO SPOILERS 

Honestly, I feel that you need to read this to get the entire scope of these characters. There were a few times I smiled but I cried so many times and IDK if it was just me but damn M. Leighton just got me right in the feels.

Sometimes I just need one of these books and I just have to say that I love M. Leighton's writing. She never disappoints and again she has brought a beautiful story with so many facets I am pretty sure I will be remembering it for a long time to come!
