Title: The Leverager
I absolutely love this author. If I’m looking for a complex and mind blowing read this is one of those authors I turn to. This story was full of suspense, grit, angst, betrayal, secrets and twists and the sex was crazy good. CL has an intricate writing style who isn’t afraid to go out the “normal realm of romance”.
Not only were the two main characters Emerson and Leverager very developed and enjoyable so were the side characters Jarek, Serv, Mikhail and Laurina. There is so much mystery behind Emerson’s character and the tragic events that she suffered through but what I enjoyed most was how the author makes this character strong and resilient. Once I read and understood about that fateful night I immediately was drawn to her. She’s scared and feels alone in this world and only wants to move on in life at any costs. Her determination puts her in the path of the Leverager.
Gosh the Leverager is so elusive yet intriguing and attractive. He comes across as unattached but it’s the business he’s in that makes him that way. If you come to him for help you better expect a pay back of great magnitude. Yet Emerson sets something off inside him, something that he’s never experienced before. He’s a very self-controlled person and very dedicated to his job but with Emerson his priorities and focus in life change.
Emerson and Leverager are so good together. Emerson and Leverager are so good together, the author created these 2 characters knowing the lives they led only made their connection more intense. Despite all the secrets, betrayals and danger the characters grow in their new found relationship. I enjoyed the ups and downs and twists and turns in this book. It kept me glued to this story from start to finish. I really recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mind blowing read with suspense, twists and turns and romance in the most unlikely circumstances.
