My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kai Ferguson has been watching his beautiful assistant Kori Williamson since she started working for him. She’s stunning, funny and he has grown to depend on her office skills and her friendship. However he is also physically attracted to her in a way he shouldn’t be he is a sadist and there is no way she can handle that side of him. So he keeps his distance, until one day fate throws them together and Kai learns Kori has been keeping secrets from him and that just won’t do.
Kori wants her boss Kai in the worst way, her masochist side cries out for his dominance. But she can’t let any man have that control over her again. The last master she let in abused her and her trust. She knows Kai is different but her fears are stopping her from being with the man who seems to be made just for her. A chance encounter at Sanctum one night pushes these two people together and they both realize they can’t hide their feelings for each other anymore.
I can’t say enough about this series, when Lexi puts out a new book with the Masters and Mercenaries fellas I literally drop everything to read it. I love every minute, the action, the suspense and the hot as hades sex keep my attention glued to the pages. I find myself sneaking chapters as I run errands or do household chores because I MUST know what will happen next. I have to admit when I heard Kai was getting his own story I didn’t think I would love it. When Kai was introduced he seemed nice enough but Lexi gave us so little of him (the tease that she is) I just thought he seemed nice enough. Boy did she prove me wrong. I did not expect to love Kai so much, from his sad childhood to his strained relationship with his brother—oh my god I can’t wait for his story, all the emotions broke my heart. Kori was Kai’s perfect match in every way, their chemistry was undeniable—once they both learned to let go and feel.
So many other stories are introduced in this installment as well. Case and Mia their book is next and I can’t wait. Lots of stuff happens with the rest of the McKay / Taggart crew. I absolutely love Erin—her grief over Theo wrecked me. She is one tough cookie but seeing her vulnerable side was fascinating. We also get to meet Kai’s brother Jared, super stud actor but underneath all the drama beats the heart of a tortured soul. Jared and Sarah Kori’s best gal pal share some great moments that I hope to read about in their story later in the series. As always Ian is the ever present leader of the Alpha males and I still adore him.
All in all another great book from Lexi Blake featuring a group of characters that you will love and want to be a part of. There is drama, suspense, heartbreaking revelations, sex and a few laughs as well. If you have not read the series you need to grab it now, what’s stopping you go one click it.
