Masters and Mercenaries is one of my all time favorite series. I'm so excited that there is a spin-off.
You get to catch up with the McKay-Taggert clan. Ian is back with all his sarcasm.
The characters featured in this book may be my least favorite. Deena held onto the past so tightly. Eric proved himself over and over again. I felt that she was a bit whiney. And I found that the author was repetitive with the expressing of Deena's feelings.
Eric was noble and referred to as a white knight many times throughout the story. I really liked his character. I liked that he didn't hold bitterness towards his ex wife. Not too crazy about the ending. I feel like Lexie Blake was bored while writing this one and was ready for it to be finished.
I'm hoping the next book will hold something new. A little pizzazz maybe...I'm really excited to read about Sebastian, the soldier who is missing both legs. That will be different.
Not my favorite but I'm hooked on this series and can't bring myself to skip one single book.

Eric Vail is a sous chef at Top, the hottest restaurant in Dallas. Its owned by Sean Taggart, he hires former military to work at this restaurant so Eric being a former SEAL fits right in. He loves cooking and thrilled that Sean agrees to help him open his own restaurant. Always up for a challenge he looks forward to getting started. In the meantime his biggest challenge to date is to get the lovely Deena Holmes to notice him as more than a work colleague. When Eric decides o sign up for the Dom training class at BDSM club Sanctum owned by Sean's brother Ian it turns out to be the perfect opportunity for Eric to get his hands on Deena in more way than one.

Deena has lost at love so many times she has closed off her heart. Eric her friend at work is the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen, but she can't risk her heart again. So she keeps him at arms length no matter how hard he tries to get her to go out with him. Since she realizes love is not an option for her she signs up as a submissive trainee at Sanctum in hopes of finding some fun with a Dom so she can explore the world of BDSM. She know she can leave love out of the equation. That is until Eric becomes the Dom she is assigned to then her heart comes into play and she's afraid she'll get hurt.
She has to keep it casual its all about the fun and the experience but she soon realizes Eric maybe more than she can handle.

I loved Deena and Eric as a couple. Eric was so alpha male sexy, he's military and he can cook what more could a girl ask for? Deena did annoy me sometimes with her resistance to the big guy but I knew it was because of her past experiences that made her afraid to let her heart go. Lexi does such a great job developing her characters that you feel their emotions.

I just didn't find the characters interesting. This time I found myself skipping ahead to see if there were glimpses of any familiar characters. There was no suspense in the relationship or in any other events. I wonder if this series has finally reached its logical end. The missing brother still needs to be rescued so that's at least two books away.

One Hot Chef…. A Woman Who Lost Her Taste for Love… A Perfect Recipe for Passion
The McKay-Taggart family is back! This is the second book in the Masters & Mercenaries spin-off series "Topped", which takes place in Sean (Little Tag) Taggart's restaurant Top. Just One Taste is about Eric Vail, the sous chef and Deena Holmes, the server that Eric wants as his! When they’re put together in the same training class at the infamous club Sanctum, he knows this is his shot. As a former SEAL, Eric is willing to show Deena just how good they can be together.

I really liked Eric. He's a great character, and I wanted to learn so much more about him! I'm so vested in this group, that when someone new enters the family, I need to know everything about them!!

Deena is divorced and her ex is an a**. Now she's working her way through college, and making sure to keep her heart safe - relationships only bring trouble, even if it's with the one man she can't forget about, Eric.

As the pair work through the Sanctum training, Deena's walls start to crack and Eric is there to catch her! Deena wants a 'bad boy' to and doesn't think the 'good guy' Eric can fulfill that fantasy, but she couldn't be more wrong! This was a really good book and I'm so glad we keep getting to see the other 'family' members to catch up.....

As with any of the M&M books, my favorite character and main 'book boyfriend' is Ian Taggart. He just lights me up - Ian is one of a kind and truly the greatest "Domic"-relief EVAR!!!

Just One Taste is an interesting title for Eric and Deena’s novella because those words have very different meanings for the Dom and submissive in training.

For Eric, one taste of Deena’s body is all he needs to know she’s the woman he wants, and as long as he’s patient and can tear down some of her walls, she’ll be his to indulge in forever.

For Deena, all she wants is a taste…a physical release from a bad boy who will please her physically and leave her emotions intact. She’s not looking for a lifelong commitment; her divorce left her scarred and broken, unwilling to put her heart on the line again.

But regardless of how much Deena tries to top from the bottom and sees Eric as a forever kind of man, not the bad boy she needs, Eric’s mission is to indulge and command, giving and taking until Deena finally sees that she can have the best of both worlds as Eric’s submissive and lover.

I have to admit…I didn’t understand why Eric felt so deeply for Deena right from the start. Don’t get me wrong…I completely understand why Deena shut down after her divorce, not wanting intimacy with anyone, but I couldn’t understand her way of thinking when it came to a bad boy vs. a good man because even giving herself over to a man only interested in sex can do more harm than good. But as Eric takes the steps to prove to Deena the type of man he is and she starts to let down her walls and consider not walking away, readers are able to see who Deena really is behind the fear and heartbreak and understand why Eric is willing to risk everything, especially his job and his heart.

Just One Taste is a fairly quick read with plenty of sass and steam.
