Enhance your purchase
Solo accepted long ago that she won’t get over Ezra. She’s worked for years to get back into his life, looking for any way to reignite the love they once shared. Unfortunately, nothing seems to penetrate the wall he has built between them. When she’s arrested for a crime she didn’t commit, she believes she’s on her own.
Racing across the globe, Ezra and Solo find themselves together again, caught in the crosshairs of the agency they sacrificed so much to serve. Days on the run soon turn to steamy nights, but Levi Green isn’t about to let them find their happily ever after. And when the smoke clears, the men and women of McKay-Taggart will never be the same again.

These stories are weaved together as Beck and Kim learn about second chances and communication but most of all forgiveness. We are given a look at the original Masters and their families as they deal with hitting their 50s and dealing with teenage hormones. The Lost Boys come back to take care of their own. Ian’s birthday brings together the whole family showing us that family is about more than blood, even when blood is shed and our favorite hero cries.
Lexi Blake shows true mastery taking us, the readers, around the globe and home again. Bringing together all of the men, women and children, all of the doms and their subs, and all of the ones that were lost, once again to help their own.
The beauty of forgiveness and the meaning of family is the central themes of this book. Beck and Kim forgiving themselves and each other. The Lost Boys healing someone who is broken through stories of their fallen brother. And murder, although I prefer to think of it as justice.
I cannot say enough about this book. I loved every minute of it. It is now one of my favorite books and I look forward to reading it again. I also can’t wait to see where we go from here beginning with Hutch’s book. Watching the next generation become Masters and Mercenaries
Another reviewer said there was a bit too much of a formula with many of the H/h relationships. That reviewer said the h is typically a doormat, the H a rude dude who treats her badly, but they have sex anyway and it all works out somehow. I sort of agree with that in a few cases. But in this book, that is definitely true.
Beck has spent the entire series being super angry, and super happy to take that out on Solo. But it's also been clear to this reader that there's a ton more to that story. But at no time did Beck try to figure that out. He's just spent numerous books talking trash to Solo, mistreating her at every opportunity, despite how clear it's been that she still loves him. When I saw that this book was going to be their story, I hesitated to.pick it up because I knew what a jerk he was going to be. (Oh who am I kidding? I pre-ordered it like I do with all Lexi Blake books. Ahem. Back to the review!)
Wow, I wasn't sure Beck could be worse than he'd been in past books, but boy was I wrong. He was straight up verbally abusive to the extreme. I had a hard time imagining that Solo could accept that and still have love for him.
Of all the H characters in this series, Ian probably had the most reason to be so hard in the h, but he didn't come close. Beck is definitely the most abusive and cruel of every male character in this series.
It really wasn't until very close to the end of this story that Beck realizes that he's pretty much mostly to blame for virtually everything that went wrong, not just with him and Solo, but with other family members, not to mention the flameout of several careers. That's a whole boatload.
Of course, that's the author's story, and she can tell it as she feels the need. I'm just saying that there are several reasons I rated this book as I did, despite being an obsessive fan of Lexi Blake work.
1. Beck is too abusive, period. He burned out his welcome several books back.
2. The story drags. Far too much angry dialogue, deliberate miscommunication between Beck and Solo, and too much abusive accusations.
3. No humor. One of the things that makes this series and these characters so endearing is the humor. Ian Taggart is one of the funniest characters ever, and one of the reasons I love him so much. Hutch, Charlotte, Derek, Erin...also very funny. All missing here.
4. Inconsistent action. Every book has action, but this one stopped and started too many times, with a long, long drag in the middle.
5. Too much Levi Green. This guy should have been killed off much sooner. He had alot of the same characteristics as Hope McDonald, and I wished death on that character waaaaaaaaaayyyy before she finally bit it.
6. Not enough sex. Yep, I said it. And the sex that did occur was sad and kind of bleak. Come on, Lexi. These characters are some of the best sexually written characters in romance, and I can say that because I read voraciously. Also, after all the years of abuse, that the Solo character trusted Beck enough to have sex with him didn't make sense at all. I wouldn't have gotten near that dude, no matter his awesome looks and smokin' equipment.
7. This should have been two books--Solo and Beck, and the Taggarts and their children.
Still, this is a Lexi Blake story and I read.every word. I just wish it had been more fulfilling.

Ian Taggart is the epitome of alpha male with a huge hidden capacity for compassion and love and getting to see so much of him in this book was a real treat.
I am not about to give any plot spoilers, but the series has ended with a huge bang. There is plenty of intrigue and action, the plotline well thought out and executed with precision. Characters are totally believable, background scenery is explained so well you can see it. There are no needless plot devices which means the story flows.
To obtain the best read from the book you really need to read the series, in fact you should read the Masters and Mercenaries series because that's where it all starts. Lexi has been weaving the plotline for years with one book after another providing not only BDSM themed romance but also building a family to share with readers.
This must be one of my all time favourites!
There are numerous sex scenes, most BDSM themed but all of them appropriate and loving.
I have long waited for Beck's story and there are some surprises in store for readers, lots of laughter as usual with sarcasm being the default setting for Ian and those surrounding him, and tears as unexpected plot twists unfold.
I cannot recommend the series highly enough.
