If there was ever a series that needed to be made into a movie or television show it is the Masters and Mercenaries series by Lexi Blake.  The action, suspense, and intrigue will keep your knuckles white as you grip your e-reader eagerly anticipating what will happen next.  Lexi is masterfully writes a new genre I call James Bond BDSM.  Her heroes are sinfully sexy and hot alpha males and the women they fall for are strong, highly intelligent, and quick witted, and sexy as hell.  I absolutely adore the fact that Lexi’s heroines are not skinny but are full of luscious curves that their men can’t get enough of. I have been eagerly awaiting Simon and Chelsea’s story since Love and Let Die.  Simon has been such a mystery to me and Lexi unveils so many things about him that I would have never expected he experienced in his past.  I was amazed at how much in common Chelsea and Simon share with each other.  All of Lexi’s books in this series can be read as a standalone, however I might suggest that you will enjoy this story much more if you pick up Love and Let Die first.  That is the first book that Chelsea and Charlotte are featured in. Chelsea narrowly escaped the Russian Mob a few years back only to find herself captured by her most unlikely enemy.  Chelsea is very well known in the cyber community as the number one hacker.  She can hack into any security system and for a long time she caused major chaos to several agencies just for fun.  Unfortunately her ability to do this put a mark on her head and it seems that Simon may be the only man that can save her besides her brother-in-law that she adorably coins as Satan. Simon has had it bad for Chelsea since the moment she sucker punched him.  He has wanted to be her Dom and to play with her at Sanctum, but for Chelsea BDSM is all about pain relief, not love, and definitely not sex.  Simon can see the emotional pain she is hiding because he knows it all too well.  He just needs her to submit to him so he can show her how good things can be and that he will love her and care for her like no one ever has.  Chelsea is stubborn.  She has always made it on her own and does not want any help.  The only reason she came to Simon is because she has nowhere else to go and well, he the sexiest man she has ever known so she is a little curious what Simon would be like as a lover.  When Chelsea approaches Simon with her problem he sees it as the perfect time to get what he has always wanted.  A BDSM contract with Chelsea one that includes things she would never let him give.  Will she take him up on his offer or will she drag her feet to Ian and Charlotte for help? If you like a lot of sizzle with lots of action and suspense you will love A View to a Thrill by Lexi Blake.  This is a book you will not be able to put down until you have finished it.  So get comfortable and enjoy this epic rollercoaster ride.

Wow! Lexi Blake's imagination knows no bounds. She is always coming up with unique and fresh ideas. As we go on a thrilling journey from Texas, to Europe, and the romantic city of Venice the action is non stop. I just can't get enough of these sexy Doms! If I ever need rescued any one of them will do! lol! They are the perfect combination of badass and all around hotness! Simon is an ex British Agent and is now working at McKay-Taggert Security after trusting the wrong person that almost cost lives. Ever since he laid eyes on Chelsea aka "The Broker" he knew she was trouble. For months he has longed to crack the ice she has erected around her but anytime he sees any kind of emotion from her she bolts. Chelsea has been on the run for her life for years from her ruthless father with the Russian Mafia and others who would love to get the information she holds. For the first time she is in one place and dare she hope to have a halfway normal life. Maybe even make a home. She longs for what Simon can offer but she doesn't believe she deserves love after all the things she has done. Simon doesn't trust easily and he wants to believe that Chelsea is ready for more but dare he hope for a life with her. As disaster strikes all in one night everything Chelsea holds dear is threatened and she turns to Simon for his help along with the McKay-Taggert Team trying to unravel the dark forces at work. We are introduced to some new people in this book and I was jumping for joy!! So excited to see where Lexi is gonna take us next! A must read for sure! Reviewed by Kristin

A View to a Thrill by Lexi Blake is the 7. installment in her Masters and Mercenaries Series. Every book can easily be read as a standalone. Simon Weston is a british aristocrat,ex british agency agent, Dom at Sanctum in Dallas, Texas and in love with a woman who doesn't even looks at him. Chelsea Dennis aka Denisovich, is the daughter of a russian mob boss and sister to Charlotte Taggart, Ian Taggart's wife. Chelsea calls him Satan with good reason. He's manipulative, overbearing and paranoid. And he's my absolute favorite character in this series. Just read and see why he named hid daughter Kala - brilliant. Ok, back to Simon and Chelsea. Chelsea is a hacker genius, a mastermind, undefeated. What her body lacks in fitness, her mind makes up for that tenfold. A View to a Thrill picks up where the previous book, Dungeon Royale left off. Chelsea shows up on Simon's doorstep because she's threatened with a bomb, yes a real life packet bomb. He does everything to keep her safe, including a chase to Europe and beaten to an inch of his life. I confess, I'm addicted to Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries Series. The stories are unique and captivating, the writing is excellent and I can't say how much I love the characters and the words. I read A View to a Thrill in one sitting, I couldn't put it down. I had to know what happens to the characters. I recommend the book and the series and give 5 stars.

This is one of my favorite series and I could not wait for Simon and Chelsea's story! This story is delightfully angsty! Just enough to make the sweet moments even sweeter. This was a page turner for me and I could not wait to see what the next chapter brought. Simon and Chelsea both have insecurities to overcome and trust to build. I loved reading how their love story unfolded. Plus I loved getting updates from the other members of the McKay-Taggart team!

Was waiting for Chelsea and Simon's story. It did not disappoint. It was interesting that Ms. Blake makes some of her doms as insecure as anyone. A real hardcase when it comes to danger but mush when it comes to relationships. Love this series!

I was really looking forward to this one, but honestly, the series has turned into more romantic suspense than anything else. Was hoping for more but was disappointed. I like the earlier Masters & Mercenaries much better.

A View to a Thrill is exactiy that, a thrill. Emotional, edge of your seat action, and an alpha male who thinks he can control everything. A woman who finds her selfworth. Simon and Chelsea, take you on an emotional ride, you don't know if you want to end.

This was quite an emotional story. It has the usual heart-pounding action, foolish alpha male who thinks he can control his woman and a tearful HEA (happy tears). Waiting for the next book is gonna be a killer. :):)
