From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake comes a new story in her Masters and Mercenaries series…
JT Malone is lucky, and he knows it. He is the heir to a billion-dollar petroleum empire, and he has a loving family. Between his good looks and his charm, he can have almost any woman he wants. The world is his oyster, and he really likes oysters. So why does it all feel so empty?
Nina Blunt is pretty sure she’s cursed. She worked her way up through the ranks at Interpol, fighting for every step with hard work and discipline. Then she lost it all because she loved the wrong person. Rebuilding her career with McKay-Taggart, she can’t help but feel lonely. It seems everyone around her is finding love and starting families. But she knows that isn’t for her. She has vowed never to make the mistake of falling in love again.
JT comes to McKay-Taggart for assistance rooting out a corporate spy, and Nina signs on to the job. Their working relationship becomes tricky, however, as their personal chemistry flares like a wildfire. Completing the assignment without giving in to the attraction that threatens to overwhelm them seems like it might be the most difficult part of the job. When danger strikes, will they be able to count on each other when the bullets are flying? If not, JT’s charmed life might just come to an end.
JT and Nina were a lot of fun. It was a little bit of an insta-love story, but it was also one that was built on a mutual attraction that was well-developed, so it worked for me.
I loved that she was the spy/bodyguard and he was the one worried about her, and wondering if she was getting herself into situations she shouldn't. It was a fun switch and I loved that it was a full role reversal and that there really wasn't ever the moment where the man has to step in to save the woman.
This is a shorter book, so by nature of the length there's a little less character development than usual for books by this author, but nothing that would make me have issues with the book.
I enjoyed and recommend this title.
