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.
Slater’s Leverage was filled with intrigue, action packed and super-hot romance. It kept you guessing and had you wondering. In your life who could be use against you for “Leverage”?

This was a very interesting read. I loved that this book was full of twists and turns that you did not see coming. The relationship between Josh and Mackenzie is very heartfelt. You feel the pain that she has had to live with for so long. Josh feels very guilty for the way that this all had to play out. Both still love each other dearly but they have to face the past before they can try at a future.
My Favorite Moment: I really liked when Drake told Josh where he was going and who he was protecting.

Mackenzie Baudin has been over Josh Slater for years, so the idea of her uncle sending him to be her protector meant only a slight hiccup in her steel resolve emotions. But her uncle's promise that within the next twenty-four hours she would know the complete truth about her life hit her like the plane crash ten years ago. The day her mother and father were killed..

From the very beginning readers know exactly what to expect: a novel about a man and a woman who fall in love. Did you really think that was all? Let’s not forget that shortly thereafter, Josh left, believing he’s protecting Mackenzie. From that point on, the action and the suspense is never ending, since 10 years later, Mackenzie’s life is in danger and Josh has been hired to protect her. Claudia Shelton knows how to weave a stunning story – from beginning to end, readers are taken through the ringer at the many unexpected twists and turns, and a romance where the chemistry is tangible. This is the first time I have read one of Claudia Shelton’s novel and I must admit I was surprised, only because novels of this genre take longer than 2-3 chapters to entirely catch my attention. Her style of writing was different and the storyline full of surprises.
