A loss he can’t forget
Since losing his twin brother, Theo, in the line of duty, Case Taggart has felt dead inside. The former Navy SEAL has dedicated himself to his family and their business but he can’t help but feel stuck as he watches everyone else move on with their lives. Only meeting the beautiful Mia brings Case out of his misery, until he discovered she was just a reporter looking for a story. Betrayed, he turned his back on her and never looked back.
An attraction she can’t deny
Mia Danvers can’t get Case Taggart out of her head. Though they hadn’t been lovers, she’d felt more for him than for any man she’d ever met. Growing up in the shadow of her over-protective, older brothers, she felt free when she was with Case and she longs to feel that way again. She knows that if she can find any trace of Theo Taggart, Case will be forced to let her back into his life. Months of searching have finally paid off and she knows this is her second chance.
A desperate search
Case and Mia follow the clues they hope will lead them to Theo and the villainous Hope McDonald, but the search becomes increasingly dangerous. From Dallas to South America and beyond, dark forces work against them and threaten their lives. With each step forward, Case and Mia are pulled closer together and forced to confront their mutual attraction. But when the truth about Theo is revealed, Case may have to make a choice between his brother and the only woman he’s ever loved.

Dominance Never Dies by Lexi Blake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4 **crazy shenanigans** STARS
“You’ve got issues. You see something shiny and you take off after it. I need you to understand that I might not be the shiniest thing you ever chased after, but I’m the thing that caught you and I’m going to keep you. Even if it means tying you up.”
Finally another M&M book. Those who follow my reviews might know my slightly problematic obsession with these delicious Doms and Ian Taggart in particular. This time around we get the story of Case Taggart, one of his younger brothers and Mia Danvers, sister of the Lawless brothers who will be getting their own spin-off series, soon-ish.
Case and Mia’s story already began in From Sanctum With Love, the 10th instalment of the Masters and Mercenaries series. They were left on bad terms, caused by mutual betrayal and miscommunication. Now Mia and Case are forced to work together in an effort to find a certain McKay-Taggart character whose name I won’t mention so I won’t spoil people who haven’t read the last few books. Their journey leads the reluctant lovers to South America.
What could possibly go wrong? It's not like Mia is the sister of a tech-billionaire, making her a target in those parts of the world. Not to mention the bad guys they are after. Really a lot of smooth-sailing and holiday like adventures ahead.
*cough* sarcasm *cough* ;)
I don't even care, I suck these books up like hot coffee. I am addicted to both. I love the suspense, the action, the hot as hell sex and the love stories tested by extraordinary circumstances. This is guilty pleasure galore. And when you put Ian Taggart - hands down my favourite sarcastic alpha dom - into the mix, I'm a happy camper.
In hindsight I don't even care that Mia had a tendency to jump first and ask questions later. You go girl. And don't apologize for any of it. A rich girl, who happens to be a journalist, who has an abundance of street smarts, who can handle herself in a third world country and who will surprise you at every turn always gets my vote. Even though while I was reading she frustrated me to no end. All forgiven. After all, Case is just as bad with his emotions and temper. Really a match made in heaven.
I love this world and all the characters in it. I’m amazed how eleven books (plus countless novellas) down the line my excitement is still there and the plot is constantly evolving. Getting more dangerous if you can believe it. It’s just such a wonderful place to escape to, full with spies, doms, scheming family members and did I mention danger? It’s fun.
All in all, fantastic writing, suspenseful story, complicated characters and that last scene in the bar? Ms. Blake, you just about killed me….I’m getting all teary thinking about it. Can’t wait for the next M&M book, oh and the Lawless series of course. The newly introduced characters really have me intrigued.
I’m fangirling again, aren’t I? Ok, shutting up now. ;P
