4.5 HEARTS out of 5
Genre: Romance Suspense
She said it and I believe it, but before I get to why let me give you a tiny bit of background info.
If you’ve not read Thompson’s book The Mistaken then I highly suggest you do before reading Leverage as it is a continuation.
Ty and Hannah’s story comes full circle in Leverage. And this time we have more players with a host of new characters out to gain leverage.
I first met this couple in The Mistaken only they were not a couple at the time and a series of unfortunate circumstances put them in a deathly situation. Both Ty and Hannah end up in bad place one so dark, so deep and so very twisted yet somehow they fall in love.
In Leverage we get the chance to know Connor Hannah’s son. He is attending college at the University of Washington and seems to be living the normal hormonal party college lifestyle that is until his best friend commits suicide. Problem is Connor was there and does not believe for one second that it was suicide. Yet Katy his best friend’s girlfriend who was also there insists that it was suicide.
The cops believe her story and before Connor can fully wrap his mind around what happens he and Katy go down a path that once taken can never be undone.
Unfortunately Connor is often led by his cock and in doing so he becomes the victim to something bigger than he could ever imagine. He is now a pawn to be used in a deadly game by some very dangerous people. People who need a little leverage.
Old enemy's resurface. As secrets from the past come to light everything you thought you knew comes in to question. Motives are questioned. People’s actions are questioned past and present. You start to wonder if it is possible for Ty and Hannah to survive this time around.
HOLY FREAKING SHIT. This book is full of twists and turns in an intricately tangled web. While reading the book I pretty much uttered the same phrase over and over the deeper in to it I got.
