Devoted: A Masters and Mercenaries Novella Kindle Edition
A woman’s work
Amy Slaten has devoted her life to Slaten Industries. After ousting her corrupt father and taking over the CEO role, she thought she could relax and enjoy taking her company to the next level. But an old business rivalry rears its ugly head. The only thing that can possibly take her mind off business is the training class at Sanctum…and her training partner, the gorgeous and funny Flynn Adler. If she can just manage to best her mysterious business rival, life might be perfect.
A man’s commitment
Flynn Adler never thought he would fall for the enemy. Business is war, or so his father always claimed. He was raised to be ruthless when it came to the family company, and now he’s raising his brother to one day work with him. The first order of business? The hostile takeover of Slaten Industries. It’s a stressful job so when his brother offers him a spot in Sanctum’s training program, Flynn jumps at the chance.
A lifetime of devotion….
When Flynn realizes the woman he’s falling for is none other than the CEO of the firm he needs to take down, he has to make a choice. Does he take care of the woman he’s falling in love with or the business he’s worked a lifetime to build? And when Amy finally understands the man she’s come to trust is none other than the enemy, will she walk away from him or fight for the love she’s come to depend on?

Frankie is the only man Amy has ever loved. Problem is, he's gay. Their marriage thwarted her father's evil scheme. Dad's ousted now, their amicable divorce is final, and they are still best friends. She plans to cut loose at Sanctum tonight. Flynn is in Dom training. His half brother warns him she will be in training, too. Neither one uses a real name. He knows who she is but she hasn't a clue about him. Two weeks pass. They are in jeopardy of becoming friends ...with benefits. By day she's a tough CEO. Evenings find her relaxed and ceding all control to her Dom. Their companies are rivals but they haven't revealed their real names yet, now her dad is preparing to take back her company and fire her loyal employees. Roleplay enables them to speak truth and they very much need to.
Once again Lexi Blake proves why I absolutely ADORE this series! It has everything I love in a book, no matter the size…a great plot, amazing characters, passion, chemistry, smoking hot sex, laughter, a little angst, love, and an unbelievable happily ever after! Flynn and Amy are dynamite. They are paired up at sanctum as training partners and Flynn is suspicious of Amy, as he knows who she is. She, however, has no clue who he is in the business world. But, their instant attraction can’t be denied and they build on that and it works for both of them. He becomes her safe harbor and he finds he can’t deny how much he wants her, no matter how much he thinks she may be playing him. They have a sweet and passionate relationship that is rooted in BDSM but it is not as hardcore as some of the other relationships I’ve read in this series and I really, really like it. It worked well for them. However, when Amy finds out who Flynn is….WOW, watch out! You don’t want to miss reading this. Flynn makes a sacrifice that makes me swoon so make sure you pick up this book! I enjoyed very much catching up on a few glimpses into the lives of other characters from past Masters and Mercenaries books. Overall this was a quick and enjoyable book and that kept me highly engaged and entertained from start to finish.
What Didn’t Work For Me:
Nothing. Flawless as usual.
Would I Recommend This Book:
Yes, especially to my BDSM loving friends.
Final Star Rating:
Flynn Adler is sleeping with the enemy and he has no desire to stop. Amy Slaten’s father is a bastard who has been in a business war with Flynn’s father for years. Flynn was raised to be ruthless and do anything to protect the family company. He has been planning the hostile takeover of Slaten Industries and now with Amy Slaten as his training partner at Sanctum he wants to find out her game. Is she here to spy on him to try and take his customers? Is she as ruthless as her father when it comes to business? The Amy he has grown to care about loves her family, her job and all the people in her life. Flynn has a hard time believing that she is as corrupt as her father. If Amy finds out Flynn has been lying to her can he convince her to stay in his life?
Once again Lexi Blake has drawn me into a fabulous story. I am in love with this series and I devour every book that comes out. Amy and Flynn’s story is no except. As always we get a full story with well-developed characters. I loved Amy she was smart, sweet and sassy my heart broke for her when she found out about Flynn’s betrayal. Flynn was sexy and caring but I did get mad at him when he didn’t come clean right away. But the big gesture he makes at the end of the book blew me and Amy away.
I can never say enough about this series; it is at the top of my list as one of my favorites in Erotic/BDSM romance. Every story is unique and takes you on a journey of love and self-discovery.

This is another stand alone novel and is shorter than some of the other books but it is powerful and the compelling story makes it very difficult to put the book down.
It is an exciting novel that is well worth reading.
