Review and Giveaway: Leverage by Jessica Wilde


Adventure. That's all Aislinn 'Ash' Brannock wanted in her life. Her dad and two brothers - all cops - got to see it all, but their over-protectiveness made her feel like she had been locked away in a tower with three fire breathing dragons watching her every move. Yes, it was that bad. The only silver lining? Lucas Shade. Her brothers' best friend growing up, and apparently the only man she will ever love because let's face it, none of the others even come close. After an unfortunate mistake lands her back in her father's home, her world is turned upside down and Lucas is there in a tightly wrapped package of serious with a big red bow on top. Life just got interesting, but it comes with a price, one she never wanted to pay.

Detective Lucas Shade never had a real family, but the Brannocks took him in as one of their own and he never took it for granted. Ash was a big reason for why he stuck around, but in order to save himself the beating of a lifetime from her two older brothers, he kept his feelings for her hidden. When the case he has been working on for months takes a turn, Ash could become the leverage the bad guys have been waiting for, but keeping her invisible may destroy everything Lucas has worked so hard for. Good thing Ash is the only person he would give up everything to protect.

4 Wonderfully Suspenseful Stars
Review by Allison East
Romantic Suspense is becoming one of my favorite genres. And Jessica Wilde does it well. This is the first book of hers that I read, and it won’t be the last. It also had some elements of love lost and found, which is another of my favorite themes.
 This is the first book in her series about the Brannock’s. There are three siblings all raised by their police captain father. They are Conall, Fergus and Aislinn (ASH-ling). 

This story centers on Ash who has recently returned home to her father’s house after having bad luck with a boyfriend. She is jobless, and wants to look for her own place to stay. On a good note, Conall and Fergus’ friend, Lucas, is still around. Little does he know shes had a HUGE crush on him, and lucky for her he is single. But unlucky for her, because her brothers give her a hard time with any guy- let alone their best friend. She’s has loved Lucas for as long as she can remember. She hoped the feelings would go away after being away for a while, but as soon as she returns its like they strengthen.

Lucas has always been in love with Ash, but knows that her overprotective brothers will pulverize him if he makes a move. When Ash returns home, Lucas wants to keep his distance, but ultimately he can’t. A drug dealer makes threats against Ash father and her family. Ash is in more danger than ever. Keeping it a secret that she is in town- makes it a whole lot harder to do anything. She is under lock and key at her father’s house. Lucas will protect her, if it’s the last thing he does.

This book has some suspense, but Ash and Lucas’ romance- is what ties this story together. It was such a well written story too. Easy to read and follow, and made it a joy to read.  You kind of knew what was going to happen, but the suspense added to the attraction between Ash and Lucas. I am glad it did. And a CRAZY plot twist happened, I was shocked!

I am excited to see what happens to Conall and Fergus, because I am sure their romances will be intriguing as well.
