Review of Invisible Leash by M.H.B.

My name is Sage Cross.

I've got it all-the beauty, the brains, the bank account.

Women hate me. Men want my Louboutins around their necks.

And I blame my father for everything. It's his fault I'm swarming through powerful men in suits while I'm stuck posing as a useless, jobless photo op.

Until he sends the perfect weapon my way: Lincoln Black. Mark my words, I plan to use him. In more ways than one.

What I don't expect coming my way is Jacob Storm, a beautiful, possessive, millionaire who sexed his way through Manhattan.

I spread my legs. My black heart however remains on lockdown.

You've been warned.

Review

★★★✩✩

Sage was in a relationship of convenience, caught under the thumb of her manipulative father, with no way out and no hope for a future of her own choosing. Jacob was a wellknown manwhore who never imagined ever changing his dirty ways. In each other, these two found themselves, embarking on something new and changing into the best versions of who they could be. Neither of them could have expected what they found in the other or how love could evolve in a heart that never held any fond emotions, but there it was. While this book involves cheating, there's nothing tawdry about it.

This is one of those instances in which the blurb of the book is misleading. However, this ended up being a good thing. I think if the synopsis mirrored the plot, I would have been disappointed. I went into this book blind and I recommend the same for anyone who picks it up. Otherwise, your heart might already turn against Sage.

It took a while for the story to get going. A long while. I didn't feel the momentum, or even want to continue going, until I hit the halfway mark and then I couldn't put the book down. Told from three different perspectives, I got the chance to meet three people and come to several opinions on each. If I were to pick a favorite, I'd have to go with Lincoln. He was such a sweet man, maybe a bit oblivious, but his heart was kind and I couldn't ask for more than that. I only wish for him to find his happiness and hope to see it in the next book.
