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.
OMG! I’m nothing but a HUGE pile of feels right now! The ending….THE ENDING! My heart is broken! I don’t know what I would do without this series in my life…without these characters is my life! I love them all to death! I can ALWAYS count on Lexi Blake’s sexy and suspenseful stories to leave me breathless, speechless, and in a euphoric daze. Sensual and passionate love scenes mixed with toe-curling drama and suspense, made DOMINANCE NEVER DIES a favorite of the series for me. There isn’t a page that’s not full of emotion or heart. This scorching HOT page-turner will leave you gasping for air and craving for what happens next. Mia and Case are a match made in heaven! Their banter, their sexy as sin chemistry exploded off of every single page. There’s not much more I can say, only to tell you if you haven’t started this INCREDIBLE series yet? I so urge you to start. It’s simply AMAZING and has EVERYTHING you could possible want in a romance series. Sexy, exciting, adventurous, erotic, and downright HILARIOUS…DOMINANCE NEVER DIES and the rest of the Masters and Mercenaries series, will leave you in a constant state of bliss, wishing you could crawl inside of these books and be a part of their world.
And without further adieu, I give you the dirty mouth of our gorgeous hero, Case Taggart…
“I’m going to eat your pussy like no one’s eaten it before. All that arousal you’re putting out right now, that’s going to be my dinner. All your sweetness, I’m going to lap it up. I’ll lick you everywhere, spread you wide so I don’t miss a drop, and then do you know what I’ll do?”
Ok, ok, ok…no MORE for you! But HOLY SHIT ladies! Makes you want to jump in the closest cold shower, am I right?
What did you say? You want a little taste of our favorite frustrating Dominant, Ian Taggart? Ha! You got it!
“Ian, I’m going to have to call you back.”
“Condom. Don’t forget the condom. She’s naked isn’t she? I can hear it in your dumbass voice. Use that condom. I can’t handle another kid right now. My life is full of poop and crying Taggart babies.”
I can’t close out a review until I post an Ian Taggart quote! DAMN! I love the hell out of that man!
Ok, back to the story. DOMINANCE NEVER DIES gets us closer to Theo Taggart. AND….that is all I’ll say about that because I don’t want to spoil anything, but just know…fans of this series will be jumping and screaming and shouting from the rooftops with what happens next.
Case let his free hand stray down to Mia’s waist, enjoying the feel of her curves. “You’re a reporter, not a soldier. I’ve agreed to stand back and let you work. I’ve agreed to let you bring along Fain. Give me something here. I’m in charge of this operation.”
She sighed, a sexy sound. “I don’t want you to cut me out. I can’t stand being treated like I’m made of glass.”
She was so obviously made of warmth and sex. He lowered his head, lips hovering over her mouth. He’d waited so damn long. “I won’t cut you out. I promise. But I need to know you’ll obey me if things get dangerous.”
“It won’t,” she promised, her hands moving to his waist.
He wanted those hands all over his body. “But if it does…”
Her lips were so close. “I’ll follow your orders. You’re in charge if things get dangerous.”
That wasn’t good enough. “And here, Mia. I’m in charge when we play. You’re the sweet sub and I’m the dirty Dom who’s going to demand absolutely everything you have to give me. Tell me yes. Tell me we can play.”
“Yes, Case. Yes.”
He covered her mouth with his, devouring her like a starving man. He couldn’t be gentle. He needed her far too much.
Her arms wound around him and she held on, pressing her body to his. Her breasts flattened against his chest.
This was what he’d wanted that first night, the first moment he’d seen her. He’d wanted soft and submissive. She’d called to that dominant piece of him he hadn’t known existed. Before Mia had walked into his life, he’d enjoyed the lifestyle, but he hadn’t truly understood it. He hadn’t known what it meant to need to dominate a woman—not for mere sexual purposes or to feed his own ego. He needed to dominate her because she ruled his every thought, because he needed to be important to this one woman.
No. Case forced himself to stop. He pulled away from the drugging kisses she was giving him. He couldn’t go down that path. If he was going to take her, it would be on his terms, and that meant he wasn’t going to play the idiot. He wasn’t going to ask for more than she could give him. He wasn’t going to pretend this was some grand love. She wasn’t Charlotte and he wasn’t Ian. They didn’t get that forever thing.
But they could have this.
“What’s wrong?” She looked up at him and then started to pull away.
He wasn’t going to let that happen. He turned her around so his front nestled her back. “Nothing’s wrong. I want to feel you. Do you have any idea how long I’ve waited to touch you, Mia? How often I’ve thought about this?” His hands were on her waist and he brought them up slowly. “I want to memorize every inch of your skin, and do you know how I’m going to do it?”
She leaned back into him. “You’re going to touch me.”
He loved how breathless she was. No other woman ever responded as honestly to him as she did. He could trust her body even if he didn’t trust the rest of her. Oh, she wouldn’t mean to hurt him. He actually believed that, but she would choose her world. She would choose her family over him. He could keep her for a little while.
“What am I going to touch you with, princess?” He moved slowly, letting his hands find the warm skin under her shirt.
“Your hands.” Her head fell back against his chest. Without heels on she didn’t quite reach his shoulders. “I want your hands everywhere, Case. They feel so good.”
“I will touch you everywhere, but that’s not all I’ll do.” He was right under her breasts. This was one of the things D/s had taught him. Sex required discipline. Patience. Control. He wanted to shove her on that bed and force his dick inside her, but that wouldn’t make it good for her. This methodical arousal of every inch of her body would make her ready for him, would make her scream for him.
Might make her stay with him for a while.
