Psychologist Kai Ferguson has had his eye on Kori Williamson for a long time. His assistant is everything he’s ever wanted in a partner—smart, caring, witty, and a bit of a masochist. More than a little, actually, but that’s the problem. Kori won’t admit her own desires. She’s afraid of him and what he has to offer. Luckily for her, helping patients face their fears is one of his specialties.
Kori knows she wants Kai. Her boss is the most amazing man she’s ever met. She’s also smart enough to stay away from him. Having been down this road before, she knows it only leads to heartache. She’s just found a place where she can belong. Another failed relationship is the last thing she needs. It’s better to guard her heart and let Kai think she’s frightened of his dark, dominant nature.
When Kai is recruited for an operation with McKay-Taggart, everything is turned upside down. Kai’s brother, international superstar Jared Johns, is in town and Kai must juggle his family issues along with a desperate hunt for a serial killer. The investigation throws Kori and Kai together, and they quickly discover the chemistry between them is undeniable. But even if their new found love can survive his secrets and her lies, it may not be enough to save them both from a killer’s twisted obsession.
Another OUTSTANDING installment of one of my all-time favorite series! When I read a Masters and Mercenaries novel, I’m transported to my happy place. Nothing puts a smile on my face fast enough like Lexi Blake release! And with this being Kai’s story…OH MY HELL! I was freaking ecstatic! It seems like I’ve been waiting on Kai Ferguson’s story for a while now and my GOD did Lexi do it justice! It was amazing! It was smoking hot! It was emotional! It was just EVERYTHING I wanted it to be!
Blake’s heroes just DO IT for me, ya know? Something about them just rocks my freaking world! And the heroines that they are paired up with always complement them in the BEST WAY POSSIBLE!
Kai’s past came to the forefront, and with it came Kori’s truth.
I simply ADORE all of these characters, but Kai and Kori are probably at the top of my list of favorite couples. Their banter was ridiculous! Check it out:
“You’ve waded in to your ankles with your water wings on, little girl. If you scene with me you better know how to swim.”
Oh boy, that Kai! He is just YUMMY isn’t he? And you know what are lovely kick-ass heroine fires back with:
“I’m a freaking Olympic gold medalist when it comes to this particular pool, Sir. And I’m a woman, not a little girl, as you’re about to find out.”
OH NO SHE DIDN’T! Gotta love the mouth on Kori! She is Kai’s PERFECT match! I feel like a mic should have been dropped after that statement! WOW! This book had everything I could ever want in a romance read! Blazing hot office sex…Passionate and intense BDSM scenes…sexy and witty banter and dirty talk that will set your eReader ablaze! There was just absolutely NO putting this down! After devouring every book in this series I feel a sense of contentment, of complete satisfaction, and then 10 minutes later, I want MORE! I will ALWAYS want more!
