I've read this book before - well, at least the character conflict. It was much like Chloe Cox's Submit and Surrender, where Adra felt like everyone always left her, and Ford didn't want anything more than a casual relationship. Then Ford becames the Pursuer, etc....Except this was much better written and the characters had a bit more dimension. But, I didn't feel like character conflicts were all that original. And the plot was meh - especially for Lexi Blake, where complicated plotting can carry weak characters. This didn't feel like a part of the Masters and Mercenaries series - it borrowed characters, but stayed well away from the plot.

The characters from one book to another are starting to blur - Ian now sounds like Charlotte. Everyone has a snarky, humorous voice. It now feels like there is a universal persona for this series, and that is really detracting from my enjoyment.

This was a miss for me, as was the last M&M. I will read the next one, because Lexi Blake's worst novel is head and shoulders above most others, but I feel like it might be time to wrap up this series. I've already given up on her Shayla Black menage series, where each book has become identical to the one before it. Looks like her Steal series has moved into my favorite Lexi Blake series.
