Lexi Blake gets better with each book.
Loved the main characters, but even more, I love the whole world she has created. Not only do I enjoy reading about the main characters, I really enjoy catching up on previous characters (I feel like I need to send a baby gift to baby Cooper), I get to meet new and interesting characters (such as debating the whole Erin/ Theo pairing--I know if anyone can pull it off its this author), and the best part??? I get to get excited about the NEXT book, before I even finish the current one (oh, I can't wait until Charlotte goes into labor-Ian is going to lose his twisted mind, hehehe!!! I want to read about that almost as much as I want to read about Tennessee!). I love how Lexi makes each characters so complete. The prologue said so much in so few words....perfect. I'm not going into the story. The summary says it all and I'm sure other reviewers will also go into those particulars, I just want to share how much I enjoy a well-written book. Lexi Blake in ALWAYS on my auto-buy list. She writes maybe four books per year, so she has also taught me patience (lol). Great, characters-- not only real alpha men but strong, alpha women too, great plotting--me at 3:20 am, "well, maybe ONE more chapter", humor--calling the babies "poopers", great editing, people this is the COMPLETE package. Just buy this book, come into this world, you can only visit a few times per year, but it is worth it. NOW to wait until AUGUST to read about Tennessee, tick tock.
PS: Ian having TWO girls????? Freakin' perfect :).
I was so blessed when I "found" Lexi Blake masters and Mercenaries series. If you haven't read it yet, run don't walk & start now. This series has it all. Good mystery and suspense, very hot erotic scenes (not just sex), sweet romance & last but not least LOL humor and a few bad puns. Ms. Blake also makes you care about the family of characters. We can't wait for the next tale of their lives.
HOWEVER, let us warn you this is not a stand alone series. They really need to be read in order or you'll start wondering where he (or she) came from. Also, read the novellas as well as the novels as they provide insight and character threads.
You Only Love Twice is Phoebe and Jesse’s story and it is a tough one. Jesse was captured while fighting in the Middle East and underwent some major torture and now suffers from PTSD flashbacks. Phoebe, working undercover for the CIA and her adopted brother, Tennessee Smith, once thought Jesse might be responsible for the death of her husband, whom she still mourns after two years. Since working for McKay-Taggart Security Services, she has not only come to believe Jesse is innocent, but she has gained a family in the other members of the company. But that changes when she gets the word to take out Jesse.
Can these two people overcome their pasts, the threat posed by an unknown killer, and the interference of their respective adopted families to find their HEA.
The interaction between Jesse and Phoebe is delightful and as always, Big Tag’s humor keeps the reader laughing. The intrigue keeps you turning the pages, and the entire book is a delightful addition to the Masters and Mercenaries series. Expect some flogging and spanking, but the BDSM lifestyle plays a very small part of this story, although what happens to Sanctum is unexpected.
Overall, a roller coaster ride of fun, sex and danger brought to you by an author who has become a master of her craft.
Brilliant. Masterpiece. Superb. Magnificent. Outstanding. I had to ravage my thesaurus to come up with enough superlatives to describe how I feel about Lexi Blake’s newest addition to her Masters and Mercenaries series. Yet all of these words seem a lukewarm description of my exact feelings while reading You Only Love Twice. I don’t think I was more than one minute into reading before I was already screaming and yelling OMG. I wasn’t even more than three percent into reading when I started crying. With her usual exceptional writing, Ms. Blake grabbed my heart and soul within two minutes of opening the book.
There was so much pain and sadness in both Jesse and Phoebe. Ms. Blake pulled these emotions to the surface for the reader to understand who these people were and help us understand their actions and motivations. But it also meant that I shed a lot of tears while reading. I shed those tears because Jesse and Phoebe were no longer fictional characters, but instead so real that I could practically feel them standing next to me. With each addition to the series, Ms. Blake blows me away with her ability to create characters with so much depth that I truly care about them.
In fact, the brilliance of this series can be directly attributed to the characters and specifically the individuality of each of the books’ featured couples. While they have BDSM and spying in common, they are never carbon copies of each other. Jesse may be a Dom in the bedroom, but when he’s not in a scene, he is full of insecurity and hurt.Read more ›
