Publisher's Summary

A man with everything.

Michael Malone seems to have it all. A wealthy, loving family. A job that fulfills him. Friends he can count on. But something is missing. He’s spent years watching his brother and close friends get married and start families, but it hasn’t happened for him. When an assignment comes up to investigate fallen Hollywood star Vanessa Hale, he jumps at the chance. She’s gorgeous and potentially deadly. Playing the spy game with her might be just the thing to take his mind off his troubles.

A woman with nothing left to lose.

Vanessa Hale had big dreams that ended in scandal. She returned home with nothing but heartache and the desire to find her mother’s killer. The trail points to someone at Lodge Corp, so taking a job with Julian Lodge’s mysterious company is her best option for finding the truth. While she hunts for a killer during the day, she hopes to find some solace at night in the Club. Meeting the gorgeous, sexy, and seemingly kind Michael Malone, their chemistry sparks in a way she’s never felt before, and Vanessa thinks maybe her luck has finally changed.

A love that might save them both.

When Michael’s true motives are revealed, she will have to find a way to forgive his betrayal. The killer has made Vanessa their next target. Working together and stopping this monster is the only chance for them to have the real love they both deserve.

Michael finally gets his story

I have been a huge fan of the Masters and Mercenaries series. They are all wonderful and Michael and Vanessa story is no exception. They complaint each other wonderfully. This book does have different theme then the other books. It handles the idea of stereotyping, body image and negative press perception. It really makes you think about how people react to pre perceived notions. It is also wonderful to catch up with my old ( and new ) favorite characters. Ian, Charlotte , Hutch, Dani, Finn, Julian, Deke, Ava, JT, Kyle and of course MayBe. I can wait for Deke’s story. And as always Ryan West was perfect.

enjoyed this and previous in series

Great characters, like when series of books include family and like family relationships and break norms, yet ate so normal and relatable. Also dig HEA as job has many unhappy endings. Also enjoy the erotic descriptions in book

Lots of intrigue here!!

I am a huge fan of the McKay-Taggert group! This one is Michael’s story. He’s tasked to watch over a woman who has been labeled a gold digger because she married a much older man. She was an actress, but no longer working. She believes her sister was murdered, not killed in a car accident.and she’s out to prove it. She is sure it was someone from The Club, so she gets into their training sessions… they need a Doom to train her…. And Michael is that Dom.

Can Vanessa get past her history of being hounded by press and fans and let herself trust Michael to lead her and teach her? Can Michael, who is insanely attracted to her, guard his heart?

Everything about this book is so good! The characters, the story and the narrator, Ryan West is perfect for this!

My new fav!

Love the whole series! Lexi Blake is an absolutely incredible writer. Her characters have become like family and I’m always guaranteed that Ian will have me laughing and someone is going to bet their rear kicked.

Ryan West does a masterful job in bringing the words to life. Now when I read any of Lexi’s books, I hear the dialogue in Ryan’s voice.

More please Sir!

I love the Masters and Mercenaries series. Each book is its own story but also contributes to expanding this wonderful universe of hot alpha men with hearts of gold. Lexi Blake weaves a tale that makes you laugh out loud but then sets your blood on fire when things get hot in the bedroom. Makes this reader wish these people and places actually existed! Can’t wait for the next book so I can get my next Ian Taggart fix. Why can’t my boss be more like him?

Seemed a bit Vanilla this time.

I enjoyed the story and the narration as always is perfect, but this seems like more of a vanilla story then anything. Kinda wanted the heat, but it was not bad. I can't wait for the next book.

Love my visits to McKay Taggart!!!

This was no exception!! Love the characters and adore the feeling of returning to old friends! Great wit and banter, love the sarcasm and Ian is just a law unto himself!! That man is incredible and I so wish he was real!! In fact wish they all were! Cracks me up thinking of a team like them being in charge of national interests!! Can’t wait for the next story snd I reckon Kyles story is going to be a total humdinger!!! Roll on the next one! Please!

Awesome book

This was another amazing story in this fabulous series. I love all these characters old and new. Catching up with MT is all kinds of fun. Big Ian Taggert is as amusing as ever. Can’t wait for the next book now.

Eeeek this was sooooooo good!!!!

It's fairly clear that I am a massive fan of Lexi Blake so reading this was a no-brainer. Loving it as well ... that was all the story!! Michael Malone has been around the M&M universe for AGES and so I was thrilled that he has finally found a woman to knock him off his feet and make him smile just like all the lovers around him do. Vanessa is a Hollywood celebrity whose star has fallen and she appears to be up to something ... something that Julian Lodge (from Texas Sirens fame) isn't happy about!! This is a beautiful story that touches upon the way women (not just celebrities but all women) are viewed in society - and make sure to check out the fabulous acknowledgements! - shows that family isn't just blood and sets up some more storylines that I'm desperate to see play out. Michael and Vanessa are perfect together ... even if it takes a little while from them to get there!! Another FANTASTIC addition to this long-running series ... the Ian-isms are on point, the BDSM is hot and the family love is strong!!

And once again Ryan West is the voice of the M&M series. I adore his voice and still can't listen to another audiobook since I found him!!

Domination in all things.

Men decided that Vanessa was in the wrong.
Men decided how to get to the bottom of it.
All the injured party were women, and they were not told.
Because of this scenario, it all went to hell in a hand basket!

The story was complex and interesting, and the D&S background wasn’t disappointing.
This is a worthwhile series to read.
