I was in a bit of a reading slump this week because I have been sick and the weather has sucked big time. When this happens I just want to read a book I love that I know has a happy ending and a feel good story. Reading this series is like being wrapped up in a warm blanket. It brings out all the warm fuzzies and makes curling up and forgetting life a breeze. The book is Leverage (The Brannock Siblings) by Jessica Wilde. This is the first book in the series and all three books are amazing.
The Brannocks are Irish in case you can’t tell from the name; and the whole family are cops. This book is a full 5 out of 5 stars. It has been edited well, and while I’m sure there might have been one or two things wrong none of them were enough to pull me out of the story. The two main characters have known each other their whole lives and have fallen in love. There is a bit of back and forth as they are unsure whether or not the other feels the same. The characters are well written and have a depth to them which makes it impossible not to like them. The author also develops the side characters very well, which leads you into the other books in the series. She focuses on the family as a whole and does not let side characters just be a passing thought.
This is one of my favorite books to read because it has a happy ending and brings out all the feels. There is enough intrigue and backstabbing in other characters to keep the story going. It flows smoothly and keeps you guessing who the bad guy is until the end. The story idea itself is not new but the way it is written is very well done. There is no wondering ahead of time if a certain character is the bad guy because he/she is written into the story as a friend and there are no ah ha moments that make you certain it is him/her before the actual ending.
I would recommend this book and the whole series to anyone. All three books flow well and lead right into the other seamlessly. I am glad to have found this book and look forward to anything else she has written.
