Publisher's Summary

A painful past

Deke Murphy and Maddie Hall should never have worked as a couple in high school. She was the class valedictorian and he the jock who took nothing seriously...except her. Together they formed an amazing team, and young love blossomed into something that strengthened them both. Until tragedy struck and Deke made a sacrifice that split them up forever.

An unexpected reunion

Seventeen years later, Maddie is living her dream working for a brilliant tech guru in the beauty of Southern California. She’s made a life for herself, and it’s first class all the way. She rarely thinks of the jock who dumped her all those years ago. But when Maddie realizes her boss might be part of an international conspiracy, she can’t deny Deke might be her best bet to solve the mystery. Her onetime sweetheart works for one of the world’s premiere security and investigative firms. She’ll hire him and prove to herself their relationship could never have worked.

A dangerous future

As Maddie and Deke begin to uncover her boss’ secrets, they can’t deny the chemistry that has reignited. But before they can explore the connection growing between them, they must survive the deadly forces hunting them down.

I can't get enough of this series!!

I absolutely love Lexi Blake. I don't think there's a title by her that I've read that hasn't been absolutely awesome! She can take a serious plot and layer in the absolute best snort-out-your-coffee moments within the dialogue that I've ever encountered. Her books are sexy, intriguing and at moments, downright hilarious.

If you'll remember that comment (way back when the McKay Taggert group was trying to determine who the traitor in Tennnesee's group might be just before the first Sanctum was blown to hell and back) that Deke made about his sisters covering him in babies and that being what pulled him back to rights after his extended time being tortured - well, that time in his life is where this starts. Deke's sisters get some really good advice on how to bring him back. When you jump to present day, you're in the thick of it with Deke and his first and only love, Maddie. Not going to rehash the plot beyond the summary.

Every moment of this book was entertaining and enjoyable. Ryan West is perfect as usual. Just start auto downloading every title. You won't be sorry!

Outstanding story and narration

Deke Murphy and Maddie Hall’s second chance at love story ticked all the boxes for me. I was captivated by the story that Lexi Blake wove and read this one in almost one go. Years ago Deke dumped his high school girlfriend Maddie knowing it was the right thing to do for her.
Fast forward seventeen years and Maddie believes that Deke is the only man who can help her when she suspects that her boss is part of an international conspiracy. As they work together secrets are uncovered and danger surrounds them. The chemistry is just as intense as it once was as is their connection.
This was a fast paced story that kept me on the edge of my seat whilst reading. There was plenty of heat, steam, suspense and danger and was a great addition to the series. The characters are well developed and engaging which I have come to expect from Ms. Blake.
Ryan West’s narration was spot on. He really has made this series his own. Hs voice is easy to listen to and he brings ms. Blake’s characters and story to life.
A strong story will characters whose story you cannot help but become invested in. Seeing some familiar faces and the scenes at the club just added an additional layer to my enjoyment of The Man From Sanctum.

As always Lexi never lets the reader down.

I loved this book—the parts that made me laugh and the parts that made me cry. Now I am desperately awaiting the next book in the series.

Great Great Great

What can I say? Another great book in this brilliant series. The hero Deke is so sweet. It was so so good to be with Ian Taggart and his world again. And wow - what an ending and plot twist. Really can’t wait for the next book in the hunt for Julia.
Ryan West was magnificent as usual and is as much part of this series now as it’s characters.,

"You let me go when you thought it was time...

...I learned that lesson from you."

I make no secret of the fact I love Lexi Blake and I adore the Masters and Mercenaries series and this latest addition is everything I could've asked for and a whole lot I didn't expect!! I loved seeing Deke - who has been around since book 7 (or 8?) of this now 24 book series - getting his second chance with his high school sweetheart Maddie. These two were clearly made for one another, and it was sad that it took them so long to find one another again. What I loved was the multiple cameos by so many of my fave M&M characters - including Ian being his sarcastic self as always; that it was low on angst and high on suspense; and that it set up the next book to pure perfection! Can No Time to Lie come out now?!?

Ryan West, yet again, makes the narration pure perfection!! Love his voice and love how he brings the M&M world to life!

The past dragged into the future

I read all the original Masters and Mercenaries. Reloaded is the next generation. I found the names of the series confusing when I was ordering the books.
This is the first of the latter books and I found the story interesting but the BDSM bland.

Wow

Lexi does it again. An intriguing story of undercover and a second chance at true love. A heart ache at the end, that just left me wanting more. Lexi is a great storyteller.
Ryan West is awesomely great at reading Lexi’s stories.
