Review: Nobody Does It Better (Masters and Mercenaries #15) by Lexi Blake


A spy who specializes in seduction

Kayla Summers was an elite CIA double agent, working inside China’s deadly MSS. Now, she works for McKay-Taggart London, but the Agency isn’t quite done with her. Spy master Ezra Fain needs her help on a mission that would send her into Hollywood’s glamorous and dangerous party scene. Intrigued by the mission and the movie star hunk she will be shadowing, she eagerly agrees. When she finds herself in his bed, she realizes she’s not only risking her life, but her heart.

A leading man who doesn’t do romance

Joshua Hunt is a legend of the silver screen. As Hollywood’s highest paid actor, he’s the man everyone wants to be, or be with, but something is missing. After being betrayed more than once, the only romance Josh believes in anymore is on the pages of his scripts. He keeps his relationships transactional, and that’s how he likes it, until he meets his new bodyguard. She was supposed to keep him safe, and satisfied when necessary, but now he’s realizing he may never be able to get enough of her.

An ending neither could have expected

Protecting Joshua started off as a mission, until it suddenly felt like her calling. When the true reason the CIA wanted her for this assignment is revealed, Kayla will have to choose between serving her country or saving the love of her life.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I cannot believe this is the last book in the Masters and Mercenaries series. Thankfully we have the spinoff which is about the lost boys and it makes me feel better because I am not done with the series and this universe. I love them all so much and I am happy that we will get more novels and novellas. The series might have ended, but there is still too much going on, so while a door just close we still have 10 of them that are still open. Unfinished business to speak plainly. Also, I wanna read Jared's book. He and Sarah should be together. He seemed so devoted to her and my heart was aching for him. He must get a book which preferably will be released in 2018.

Before I say anything else, I have to say that the book had too many names that started with J. I am really bad at remembering people and their names even in real life and all the Js started confusing me at some point around 4 am when I was still reading the book. I couldn't put it down because everything seemed slow and easy breezy in the first three-quarters of the book, but in the last one things got explosive, people got shot and the adrenaline kicked in. It was everything I ever wanted. I kept turning the pages because I had to read what was going to happen next, if all the people I loved would make it out alive in the end and if everything was going to be all right. I won't say more since I want to give you a chance to enjoy this book without having been spoiled and I don't think I can continue writing without giving away something.

Kay is a kick arse heroine. We all know her and love her already so I am not going to say much about her. Her dads were fun. I liked how she handled her personal and professional life. She did what she wanted without being forced into anything and she got after what she wanted. She tried to be as honest as possible and risked everything. Josh, on the other hand, was giving me a whiplash with all the sudden changes of emotion. One minute he is all about how Kay is moving on without him and his fine about it and the next he is thinking how HIS Kay would never do that. Dude, decide if you want the woman or not. He was so perfectly broken at first, but once he found out a few things he got very mad and I started liking him a little bit less. In the end, he fixed things, but for a short time he was on my "I don't like him much list".

Do I need to say if I would recommend the book? No. You already know the answer to that. I will say though that Ian and two more people (see, still not spoiling everything) make an appearance and I loved it! It was very funny and it reminded me that I should read Ian's book.


 “Kayla?” Her eyes came up, a flash of recognition there. “Yes?” “Are you going to sign the contract or do you have more questions?” She picked up the pen sitting on top of the contracts that would bind the two of them together for the next six months. They would reevaluate the relationship at that point in time, but for the next six months, she was his. His bodyguard. His submissive. Bought and properly paid for. He would take care of her and she would give him what he needed. She signed with a flourish and sat back, a gleam of curiosity in her eyes. He was curious, too, and there was zero reason to not satisfy their curiosity. Hard and soft limits had been gone over. They would find their communication style as they went along. But first she should understand that he was in control. “Come sit on my lap.” She didn’t hesitate. She stood and turned, shifting so she could maneuver her way onto his lap. Her weight came down on him and he wrapped an arm around her waist. Damn but she made him feel big. He’d seen her take out a man twice her size, but sitting here in his lap she felt small and vulnerable, and fuck but that did it for him. He slid a hand along her knee, letting himself indulge in the silky-smooth feel of her skin against his palm. “Did you do as I asked?” He was well aware his voice had gone husky, deeper than normal. “Yes, Joshua.” She squirmed the tiniest bit, as though trying to find a comfortable position. It might be difficult for her because she was sitting right on his cock, and it was harder and thicker than he could ever remember it being. “How can I trust you?” This was all part of the game he loved. Here he could let go and play out the darker of his impulses—to control, to take, to possess. See. Want. Have. “You’ll have to check,” she replied. “Though shouldn’t we go inside?” He reached out and picked up his cell with his free hand, pushing one number and connecting to the security room. He put them on speaker. She needed to understand what she was up against in order for the game to be fair. “Landon?” “This is Burke,” the deep voice replied. “Shane’s on patrol. What can I do for you?” “Burke, I would like to fuck my submissive on the third-floor balcony. Is anyone watching us? Can you see any cameras pointed our way?” A low, masculine chuckle came across the line. “No, Mr. Hunt. And given the angle relative to the beach, you should enjoy your evening without worry. The only peepers I would worry about would be your next-door neighbor, and Jared is out for the night.” “I wouldn’t care if he wasn’t. Keep up the good work.” He hung up and his hand tightened. “I would prefer when we’re playing that you don’t question me like that. I know where I want to fuck you. I know when I want to fuck you, and I’m in charge. If I want you in the middle of a crowded freeway, your only response is a yes or a no. Not to question me.” She seemed to relax back against him, as though she was giving up the struggle and choosing to submit. “Yes, Joshua. Yes, I understand, and yes to the sex. Please.” He liked the breathy please and loved how she squirmed. Still, he wasn’t absolutely sure she’d obeyed him, and he was a man who required proof. He slid his hand up her thigh. “Spread your legs for me.” Her knees fell apart, and he could feel the heat from her core. He slipped a hand up until he made contact with her softest skin. No panties. Nothing but wet heat waiting for him, and it was obvious the play had cranked her up, too. His free hand eased one button on her shirt free, and then another and another until he could move in like a soldier conquering territory. No bra. Her breasts were like the rest of her. Soft and delicate. One nipple rolled against his palm, hardening then and there. “I can see you’ve been an obedient sub,” he said, his mouth against her ear. “You need to stay that way or there will be punishment. I’m not a sadist, Kayla. I truly don’t get off on your pain, but I will give it to you if you need it. I am a disciplinarian. I gain satisfaction from your obedience. In exchange, I’ll show you how good it can be to obey me.”

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

If you are reading this book I will assume that you won't mind spoilers from the previous book.

I needed an epilogue. I needed something to show me that even ten years later everything was all right with all the people I loved. The book ended on a light note though and I found it sweet. I am going to miss these characters. It's been 6 years since I picked the first book and loved it. All the books got 5 stars from me. 

My heart was hurting for poor Julian whose only goal was to get his girl back. Arianna has no memory of her love for Julian and her strong friendship with Nika. So, Julian with the unrequited help of his friend tries to get the girl and the happily ever after. I have to say that Julian's friend might have started as the stoner friend who wasn't very likable (to me at least), but in this book, I appreciated him and he got on my good side. Could we have a novella about him? One where we can also see some of the people we already know?

Nika and Hunter have also problems, but they are in a better place since they are still together! Their problem is the bond they share which drives them crazy (among other things) each day. Well, that and Teren who is very protective of his baby girl and refuses to acknowledge the fact that his daughter needs to be with Hunter. I wanted to see Nika adjusting to her new life as a vampire who couldn't get into the sunlight. I don't know if she handled it so well because she was already used to the other vampires coming out only in the night or if there was just no room for her to begin questioning how she was going to live the rest of her life. 

I was really worried about who was going to make it out alive when I was reading the book. The villain in this one is the most threatening and he could have ended the vampires with his plans. No one was safe and it worried me. The book had a lot of twists and most of them somehow ended up giving something to the family (with some sacrifices on their part). I want one more book where I can see the family living their lives with all the new twists. It makes me sad to see the series ending. I want more. I don't want to say goodbye to the characters.

Arianna had relaxed quite a bit during our conversation. Her demeanor was casual as she played with the strap of her shoe. Her laugh came naturally. It was easy to pretend that we were still together as we sat there talking. Our arms were even touching. It sent a jolt of electricity down my spine to feel my skin against hers again. It felt like we were finally shifting, finally moving in the right direction. It was everything I’d hoped tonight would be. After a brief pause in talking about our summer plans, Arianna pursed her lips and said, “Why have we never been friends before now? We’re in the same grade, and we must have had classes together before…but I don’t recall ever seeing you before a couple of months ago.” I sighed, not sure how to answer that. “I don’t know… We must have just kept missing each other. But I’m so glad that’s not the case anymore. You…there’s just something about you. You’re kind, warm, accepting. You see past people’s faults, to the person they are underneath. You’re patient, forgiving, and open to things that are a little…different. But you don’t take crap from anyone either, and you stand up for what you believe in. You’re just…amazing.” Her expression was blank. “You saw all that, sitting across the room from me?” I peeked up at her with a small smile that I couldn’t hide. “I see you, Arianna. I see the real you.” Straightening, I met her eye and held her gaze. “And I really like what I see.” Arianna held her breath as we stared at each other. Her heart rate spiked, and I momentarily felt bad that I could hear it. She’d probably be embarrassed if she knew I could. But then her eyes drifted to my lips, and I really didn’t care that I had a slight advantage. All I cared about was whether she wanted me to kiss her right now. Was she ready to see me as more? I leaned in, tentative and unsure. Maybe I was misinterpreting this. Maybe, because I wanted it so badly, I was seeing something that wasn’t there. My heart was thumping in my chest so loudly, Nika probably thought I was doing something much more strenuous than just sitting on a bed, staring at Arianna, and waiting for our second first kiss to happen.

Review: Eulogy (Eagle Elite #9) by Rachel Van Dyken

SBPRBANNER-Eulogy-BT (1).jpg

Eulogy by Rachel Van Dyken Publication Date: February 20th, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance


All is lost.
All. I don't recognize myself in the mirror anymore. My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage. I've lost my soul. She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been. Sixty lives are mine to take. Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance. Sixty lives plus one more. Mine. When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled. Only one person stands in the way. She doesn't realize I'll kill her too. I don't own a heart. And even if I did — I wouldn't fall prey to its lies again. I am Chase Abandonato. Heir to a legacy of betrayal. And I will kill them all. Even if it means pointing the gun at myself. A life for a life. A soul for a soul.
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep. Blood in. No out.



Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

While thinking about what I should write in this review, I thought I should check out my review of Chase's first book aka Entice. In my review, I wrote " Chase needed a girl who would love him with all her heart". The whole time I was reading Eulogy I realized that Mil hadn't given him her whole heart. Only a part of it. And it pained me. It made me wonder about all the couples in the series. Are they really in love? Are they as broken as Mil and Chase were? I am not sure about anything anymore when it comes to Eagle Elite. I hope the rest of the couples are safe. Maybe that's the reason I am hoping to see the series ending soon. I don't want anyone else to go through what Chase did. My poor baby was broken. He wasn't the Chase I knew and loved. He was a broken man whose only mission was to kill the De Langes and drink. He almost burned his house. His relationship with Mil had cracks and I never noticed them. I can't believe that Mil was acting the way we saw her in the flashbacks. I had a different image for her in my mind.

I was a little hesitant when I began reading the book. I kind of wanted Mil to come back and reveal that this whole thing was a plot to find some things out. I am still not over her betrayal. I was feeling numb the whole time I was reading this. Luciana is a good woman. I liked her, but unfortunately, I met her in the wrong book. This time I am sure that she is the one who is going to love Chase with all her heart. She will be there to chase the nightmares away (and no that wasn't a pun). I am glad I didn't cry in this book. I have been crying for the last couple of books. 

The book wasn't bad. The problem is me and my weird feelings. I liked seeing Chase starting to become a version of himself that a mix of the man I knew and the man who had been through hell. Luciana is the opposite on Mil. She wears pearls and screams when she sees a mouse. She is not one of the bosses. She is a regular girl who has no idea what been with the mafia means. If I had met her before I would have definitely sung her praises because she brought a different kind of air to the series. I am looking forward to seeing more of her in the next books. Honestly, she is amazing. What she did in her mission to save Chase is not something I am used to seeing, but she gained the respect of everyone. She is the best part of the book.

BLOOD. BLOOD. BLOOD. It covered my hands. It surged through my heart. It dripped from my fingertips onto the concrete floor. Trapped. Broken. Finished. Hungry. Insanity scratched its way into my psyche as I eyed the door and waited. One heartbeat, two heartbeats, three… It opened. I fired two rounds, and acrid smoke filled the air. I thought I knew what love was. I was a fucking idiot. Every single bone in my body shuddered with rage, with the need to rip something apart, someone, anyone —all of them. My friends. My brothers. I brought the war to our house, and they would finish me because of it. I’d thought I loved her. Our love had been a lie. Her betrayal my only truth. And now? Now, I finally knew what love was. I’d seen it, smelled it, tasted it. And lost it. I’d fucking lost it. They would pay. They would all pay. For taking her. For turning her against me. For making me believe that blood was everything, only after mine was spilled.

Lauren captivated me with those big brown eyes of hers, and I knew my life would never be the same. What started out as friendship, has turned into so much more.

I was shocked when Tristian asked for my number. There hasn't been a day since that I haven't heard from him. He may be the drummer, but that deep sexy voice, it turns me inside out.

I assumed it would be one and done, but that's not how our story ends.

I worry it's not what he wants. He tells me he's Definite.

Review: HANNAH (Silicon Valley Billionaires, #3) by Leigh James

Before She Can Put the Past Away...There’s Hell to Pay.
Hannah Taylor—the bright, bubbly publicity director of Silicon Valley’s celebrated startup Paragon Laboratories—was kidnapped and beaten. Her bodyguard-boyfriend, Wesley Eden, was shot right in front of her. The responsible party? None other than Chinese mogul Li Na Zhao, who’ll stop at nothing to steal Paragon’s blockbuster biotechnology from Hannah’s CEO sister Lauren.
Now, Wesley and Hannah are back home and on the mend. Their relationship is tested as Wesley struggles to recover, and Hannah, fueled by the injustice of Li Na’s actions, is out for retribution while refusing to acknowledge the PTSD she’s grappling with from her kidnapping. Convinced that Hannah is hiding the truth about her captivity, Wes is determined to find out what really happened while Li Na had Hannah.
Out to protect her loved ones, Hannah is hell-bent on finally taking Li Na down, especially after she discovers that Paragon isn’t the only Silicon Valley company in Li Na’s crosshairs. Naturally, the ethically challenged Chinese CEO likes her position on top and refuses to give up without a fight...
But Li Na hasn’t grappled with Hannah Taylor when she’s bent on revenge.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Hannah is the third book in the Silicon Valley Billionaires series. For me, it cannot be read as stand-alone because Hannah and Wes are trying to live their lives and move on after the events of the second book. The big bad lady is the same villain from the other two books and the books are very connected. I am thankful for getting all the books for review because I would have been lost without Lauren and Gabe. 

I don't want this book to be the last in the series because I feel like Ellis, Levi and Bethany should get their happy endings. We could have a spin-off or something. I am talking about the ending of the series because for the first time, we didn't get the first chapter of the next book at the end like it happened with the two previous books. It would really bug me if we never got to revisit these characters. Another thing that bugs me is that I am not certain how much time passes in these books. For how long was Hannah captive? How much time has passed in this book? 

What I liked about this novel is that we got to see how Wes and Hannah were handling everything they went through. They didn't just say, I am good and moved on with their lives and I was glad for that. It was good seeing them having difficulties and showing signs of trauma not because I am a sadistic person but because it felt realistic. 

The romance between the two main characters was good, but Lauren's words to Wes made me think about and doubt their relationship. It was possible that Hannah and Wes had stronger feelings for each other because of their traumatic experience. I would have given 5 stars to the book if I wasn't doubting them a little bit.

The blurb made the book sound very promising and I was very excited to read it, but the so-called hero ruined everything. I was willing to put aside the cockiness and the way he treated Stella in the beginning, but the second half of the book was a string of "Is Stella supposed to fall in love with that douche" events that ruined my mood. I don't know why Stella kept accepting his behavior. She did her best to be there for him and he was acting like a jerk and I wasn't ok with it. I am not saying that Stella was the best heroine or something like that, but she was better than him and even if she was uptight she was more easy to relate to.

The story is overstuffed while we could just have Stella and Dane trying to work everything out and caring for their baby. Instead, the story was focused on a few other stuff which weren't necessary if you ask me. To be fair the book had some good parts which are the reason my rating isn't lower, like some humor.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00014]

Grabbing the pot of freshly brewed coffee from the coffee maker, he stares into the pot then drinks from it. I don’t bother to tell him it’s decaf. Throat working as he swallows, he holds up his index finger. I’ve got a finger for him, the middle one. “I don’t know what’s gotten into you but I’ve had enough.” He continues drinking. “And word of caution, if you come back to New York and continue to treat me like I’m cattle, a possession, you will damage this friendship beyond repair.” He places the pot down, his eyes downcast as he leans on the counter for support. “I’m sorry…I was a real asshole last night and––” “Last night?!” I shout. “How about for the past week.” “Well you’re not helpin’ the situation!” he shouts back, his eyes sparking, then winces again. My jaw hangs in disbelief. He can’t be serious. Is he really blaming me? “The hell are you talking about? You’re blaming me? Me?! You’ve been unbearable––when you’ve been around, that is. Usually you’re running in the opposite direction. But somehow in your twisted little male peanut sized brain, it’s my fault?!” “Yes, goddamit! Dancin’––smilin’ at that fucking cowboy!” His hand slashes through the air as if he’s indicating to someone in the corner. The veins near his temple pop up. Eyes impossibly wide, he advances on me, stopping a mere foot away. “You never smile at me like that!” Huh? “What does that have to do with anything?!” “Because I’m jealous! Okay! And you’ve made it very clear you’re not attracted to me but all I can think about is this!” He’s on me before I can blink, arms crushing me to him, kissing me like I hold the last breath of air on the planet and he means to steal it. A beat later he stops. His lips against mine he murmurs, “Kiss me back…please kiss me back.”

Release Blitz: Gods & Monsters bySaffron A Kent

Title: Gods & Monsters
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2018


He was an artist. She was his muse.

To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil's spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.

To twelve year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.

Despite her family's warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn't.

Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.

But the thing about legends is that they are cautionary tales. They are made of choices and mistakes. And for Abel and Evie, the artist and the muse, those mistakes come in the form of lights, camera, sex.

NOTE: This is NOT a paranormal or a priest romance.



Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

The books is divided into 3 parts. For me only the first part was good. Abel and Evie live in a small town where the people are very religious and it has the kind of people who are only good as punch bags. Both characters had difficult upbringings, but for the first part, they seemed to be okay. I liked them. We got to see the characters aging. I am not going to say growing up because the whole time I was reading the book I felt like I was dealing with kids. Evie has just gotten her period at the beginning of the book (around the age of 12) and the first part ends the night of her prom. The second part is where everything goes downhill. It's the complete opposite of the first part. There we had religion and in this part, we get a ton of sinful things happening. Like the main characters making a movie where they dance horizontally if you get my meaning (not saying the word because Amazon is weird about that). It's also the part where Abel's character is ruined and he becomes a person who doesn't consider anyone but himself when he made some decisions. Evie is not doing much and I felt like she just was there. When the third part came, I was honestly thinking that both characters should see that they shouldn't be together and call it quits. At first, their relationship seemed so good, but in the end, it was ruined and I wished to see both of them ending up with someone else. The story goes on for years and the characters had almost no development. Abel tried to fix himself, but his time was limited. I wouldn't recommend the book.
