I love finding a great book to read, getting lost in the pages, forgetting the world around me, and then coming back to reality to find hours have slipped by. So, what could be the cherry on top of total immersion in an awesome author’s story?

When it’s a multi-book series!

I am flipping cartwheels over Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. The stories have everything I want in a book: tough heroes, smart heroines, sassy side characters, and an adventurous, compelling story with threads that link the series books together.

The first novel in her Masters & Mercenaries series is titled The Dom Who Loved Me.

Sheri’s Review

The Dom Who Loved Me by Lexi Blake is a captivating blend of romance, suspense, and steamy erotica that will leave readers breathless and eagerly turning the pages. This first novel in the Masters and Mercenaries series introduces us to Sean Taggart, a former Navy SEAL now working as a private security specialist, and Grace Hawthorne, a widowed mother who unwittingly becomes the key to Sean’s latest mission.

Lexi Blake excels at creating complex, relatable characters who draw readers into their world. Sean is a compelling hero—strong, dominant, yet capable of deep affection. His protective nature and military precision contrast beautifully with Grace’s vulnerability

and hidden strength. Grace is a refreshing heroine who navigates her new reality with a blend of fear and courage, making her journey both believable and engaging.

The chemistry between Sean and Grace is electric. Blake masterfully builds their relationship from initial intrigue to intense passion, all while weaving a suspenseful plot around them. The BDSM elements are handled with care and respect, adding depth to their dynamic without overshadowing the emotional connection they share.

The plot is well-paced, balancing the romantic development with the unfolding mystery. The danger surrounding Grace and the high-stakes mission Sean is on creates a palpable tension that keeps readers on edge. As secrets are revealed and the true threat emerges, Blake keeps the twists coming, making it hard to put the book down.

The Dom Who Loved Me is a thrilling start to a series that promises to deliver passion, danger, and love. Lexi Blake has crafted a story that’s as heart-pounding as it is heartwarming, leaving readers eager for more of Masters and Mercenaries, a 15-book series.
