#Review – Slater’s Revenge (Shades of Leverage) by Claudia Shelton

Slater's Revenge (Shades of Leverage, #1)

 

Former vice cop Mackenzie Baudin is at the top of criminal organization Coercion Ten’s hit list. If they get hold of her, she’ll be leveraged against her uncle, director of OPAQUE’s special ops force. She’s now saddled with agent-protector Josh Slater. He might be hotter than ever, but she’ll never forgive him for walking out on her ten years ago. Unfortunately her penthouse, which is now his domain, is way too small for the both of them.

No one else knows better than OPAQUE agent Josh Slater how to thwart Coercion Ten. After all these years, he’s closing in on the crime boss who bought his father for a bank account, but, that entails returning to his hometown to protect his boss’s niece. The only woman he ever loved. Sexy, gorgeous Macki, who he was forced to leave behind. And he can never tell her why.

Wow! This….I can’t form the words to explain how good this book is. It is so suspenseful and quite the page turner! Incredibly intense with tons of action and angst between Josh and Macki will keep you turning the pages. Macki is a former vice cop and Josh is part of OPAQUE. Everyone thinks OPAQUE is a security firm but little does everyone know that OPAQUE is out fighting the bad guys, Coercion Ten. Coercion Ten is a top of the line criminal organization and Macki ends up on the top of the hit list. Josh is brought in to protect her. But the past that they have didn’t end on a good note. As the past reveals itself and as the story progresses we find out how much these two are just in the middle of the chaos that Coercion Ten plans to bring. Facing facts, fears and the future with tons of emotions riding high in this story will constantly keep you turning the pages.  This story fills you with the need to figure out what exactly is going on. The suspense was killing me! It’s a crazy wild ride that keeps you guessing. And the plot twists!!!! The plot twists just keep coming! And the end….the end….Boom!!!! You won’t be disappointed at all. I read this one as a stand-alone and can’t wait to get into more of this series. Claudia Shelton is a new author for me and she has obtained a new stalker….*waves*, fan! Bravo!

kristis review

I received a copy for a honest review

This was a new series and a new author for me, but new is good!

Josh Slater is a top protector agent for the OPAQUE agency, which deals with protecting people

from a clandestine group called Coercion Ten.

This group controls you by blackmailing you by using the person or persons you love the most.

Mackenzie Baudin is the current director of OPAQUE’s niece, the ex-director and founder’s daughter and her name is at the top of Coercion Ten’s acquire list. They want to use her against the director.

Josh is sent to protect her, but they have a past. The were together the summer that Mackenzie’s parents died, he left because he thought she deserved better than the son of the man who killed her parents. There’s lots of dealing with the past once Mackenzie finds out the truth about her family. There’s also lots of action, with people getting beat up and blown up.

If your looking for a book with lots of sex scenes this is not the book for you, however I didn’t miss them. Josh and Mackenzie are good together, once they put everything behind them. It will be interesting to see who is the mastermind behind Coercion Ten and how OPAQUE deals with them.
