Brody Carter, speaking to his infant son, Nathan
Love Another Day
I’m just going to dive in on this one.
Hot Aussie Brody Carter was imbedded by McKay-Taggart in Dr. Stephanie (Steph) Gibson’s charity clinic in Africa. The attraction is mutual, but doesn’t get physical until the gorgeous Steph makes a move on Brody. His assignment in Sierra Leone now complete, Brody has plans to head out the next day, so he surrenders to Steph’s advances. Body parts collide, fluids are shared, and appetites are sated. In the wee hours of the night, Brody takes off, convinced that Steph deserves a better life than what he can offer her. Luckily for Brody and Steph, fate has waved her magic wand, and baby Nathan is conceived.
Steph tries to contact Brody many times, leaving voice mail messages regarding his impending fatherhood, a son to be born to them. Brody never picks up on her calls. In a gesture of density that can only be attributable to those who carry the Y chromosome, Brody actually believes ghosting Steph is the way to give her the future she deserves. He deletes her messages without ever having listened to them. Brody has some serious self-esteem issues.
Eventually, Stephanie shows up in Dallas with baby Nathan, and Brody embraces his son. Becoming a father has forced Brody to recognize his own worth. He’d like to embrace Nathan’s mother, too, but Steph has her own serious issues.
Dr. Stephanie Gibson has martyr complex that puts her on par with Joan of Arc, and herein lies my issue with Love Another Day: this character annoyed the . . . heck out of me. Guilt-ridden by events in her past long forgiven by others, Steph repeatedly offers herself up to the grim reaper in a gesture of atonement. That I ended up sympathetic to Steph is a credit to the talent of author Lexi Blake. Not many writers can take a character who consistently acts against the best interests of not only herself, but of her child, and make her likeable by the end of the story.
Love Another Day is novel #14 in Lexi Blake’s outstanding Masters and Mercenaries series, and notwithstanding my annoyance with the aforementioned Dr. Gibson, it’s a nail-biter. The plot is intense, steamy and fluid — bullets fly, spankings are issued, loyalties are tested. This story has all the hallmarks fans of the series have grown to love and expect from this gifted author. Appearances by major McKay-Taggart characters are icing on this M&M cake. (Why, hello there Ian Taggart!)
Full of suspense, angst and good times in Sanctum, Love Another Day is another terrific read from author Lexi Blake.
While I truly enjoyed the plot of this novel, it was a little heavy on the sex, for me. I know most other romance readers love that aspect but I can always do without it. The good thing about the sex in this novel was that it always seemed to be moving Steph and Brody forward as a couple. Those are the only kinds of sex scenes that I appreciate in a book. The fact that the book wasn’t full of gratuitous sex made up for the amount, as far as I’m concerned.
Love Another Day was an intriguing and engrossing story. The unknowns as far as Brody and Steph’s relationship, as well as the threat against Steph's life, kept me from putting the book down for any longer than I absolutely had to. I needed to know what was going to happen next. I loved the way Ms. Blake gave just enough information to keep me interested without revealing so much that the mystery of the book was lost. I appreciated the little glimpses of each of their pasts, but truly wish they both would have been more fully explored. I think a good chunk of Steph’s story was probably explored in a previous novel, but I assume the fallout from that event wasn’t included there either. The story wasn’t lacking, I just feel fleshing out those back stories would have made the experience of the novel more robust.
Brody was, by far, my favorite of the two main characters. While at the beginning he was a bit of a dick, his reasoning for doing what he did was more fleshed out; therefore, it was far easier to understand. Steph’s motivations, for most of the book, seemed rooted in her past. While the major instigating event was explained there seemed to be a lot of pain and damage she had been through that was never fully explained. I think having that information would have made her both more likable and understandable.
Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries world was rich and complex. The interwoven nature of her characters made me want to know more, learn more about this reality she’s created. It takes a talented hand to write a book that can be easily understood without prior knowledge of the series while adding enough information about the previously constructed relationships to make a reader want to delve into in wholeheartedly; Ms. Blake did this well and I commend her talent and commitment to her craft because of that.
