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.
So to get to the book itself, it follows the story of Brody and Stephanie. Brody is the funny Aussie dude who joined the London crew a while ago. Stephanie is the doctor he had teamed up with when they were trying to catch Hope McDonald while in Africa. She is also the girl who had caused Avery's accident that killed her husband and baby back in Liam and Avery's book. That part of her life is still haunting Stephanie. She tried therapy, she tried dealing with the grief, but nothing helped. Avery did her best to become her friend and show her that she had truly forgiven her for the accident that had changed the entire course of her life. But Stephanie never forgave herself and is punishing herself on a regular basis, to the point where she definitely has a death wish. She also has a major crush/ turned into true love on Brody Carter, the operative she was assigned when she agreed to help Big Tag&Co take Hope McDonald down and save the Lost Boys.
Brody and Stephanie's journey was an emotional one more than anything. They had a one night stand when their mission was over. Brody felt intimidated by Steph and didn't plan on seeing her again afterward, as he didn't think he was good enough for her. However, life had different plans for them. Steph ends up pregnant, and Brody doesn't find out until couple of months after the baby is born, due to his own stubbornness/ stupidity. Now Steph is in danger and she doesn't even know why, so she ends up with the entire gang trying to help her out since she didn't have anywhere else to go.
The two negative things I do have to mention about their story would be 1) Steph was annoying to high heaven with her death wish situation. I was over it at some point and just wanted to slap her to bring her to reality. Woman, you have a baby to raise!!! Enough is enough!!! And yes, going back to Africa with a baby in tow is a stupid idea 🙄 And 2) the cover of this book 😐 It is very Fabio like... Not that there's anything wrong with Fabio. It'd be a great cover. If we were in 1987. But we're not.
Next book is Kayla (former spy and current London team member) and Joshua (Kai's brother). It cannot come soon enough!!!
