For His Eyes Only (Masters and Mercenaries Series #13) by Lexi Blake

A night he can't forget

Five years ago, Nick Markovic found himself consumed by his quest for vengeance. The one time he managed to find peace was in the arms of Hayley Dalton. Being with her was like bathing in sunlight, and he ached to feel that again, but he couldn't. He gave his oath to Hayley's cousin Desiree, his partner at McKay-Taggart and Knight, that he'd never let his darkness infect Hayley's innocent world.

A spark she can't put out

It was years before that Hayley offered everything she had to Nick. After that one amazing night, all she wanted was to be his forever. Unfortunately, Nick's reaction was to walk away from her and never look back. The warm and caring man she'd discovered was gone, and after Des's death, he'd only grown colder. But when Hayley finds herself in mortal danger, she's forced to seek protection from the man who broke her heart.

A flame that threatens to consume them both

Haunted by the women he failed, Nick can't allow himself to grow close to Hayley again. Running to stay ahead of the powerful forces that endanger their lives, they travel from the lush Garden in London to the glittering lights of Rio. As the threat against her becomes clearer, he realizes that to keep her safe he must confront the demons from his past, even if it costs him a future with the woman he loves.

400 or so pages. I spent the first 100 pages trying to remember who everyone was. Because of that, I spent the first 100 pages totally confused. I even went back to the last book, to try and figure it out. Nope. Maybe a character list? A lengthy prologue? Something? The heat level in this one is turned way down. Not that the chemistry wasn't there. It was. But the love scenes were few and far between. Mostly just mentioned as a few days spent in bed. Sad. I missed the heat. The bdsm was light, very, very, very light. I'm not sure I like the direction Ms. Blake's seem to be going. On the plus side, Ian and Charlie are in this book. A lot. They made the book. The ending was rushed. Debriefing. Quick answers. Poof. Over. However, I can't wait for Brody's book. So there is that. I bought my copy. This is my honest review. It's good. I don't regret it at all. I just miss the way Lexi Blake wrote previously. If this continues on, I will have to rethink my auto-buy status for Ms. Blake.

For His Eyes Only By: Lexi Blake 5 Star Review by Kristie K Lexi Blake delivers another heart-pounding, sensual thrill-ride with the men and women of McKay-Taggert and Knight… I love Lexi Blake. She is my kindred spirit, my soul sister, my eidolon. No matter where she takes me, or how far we go, it is always one hell of a ride. No exception to the rule, For His Eyes Only lives up to every expectation I have from Ms. Blake, and exceeds some as well. A complicated and intense plot, with switchbacks, twists, and turns at every corner, Ms. Blake never misses a beat. Plot holes are non-existent, and with the extensive number of books preceding this in the series, that is REALLY saying something. As always, her characters are seamless and perfectly developed, with their only flaws being those they are intended to have. I fell hopelessly in love with both Hayley and Nick, and rekindled the love affair I already had with the other members of the McKay-Taggert and Knight team. From the cover, to the blurb, to the characters, to the storyline, to the plot and everything in between, this book is superb. It kept me on the edge of my seat, squirming with both suspense and desire, throughout its entirety. As an absolute addict, I assure you I will be stalking Ms. Blake at every turn to get my hands on her next release. Kristie K.

This is such a great addition to the Masters and Mercenaries series. I enjoyed the dynamic between Nick and Hayley. Some previous questions were answered in this book and there are some new questions that will have to wait to be answered in the next book. I can't wait. Another great book Lexi!

For His Eyes Only is lucky number 13 in the incredible Masters and Mercenaries series by the incomparable Lexi Blake. If you are really keeping count though, this is the 24th tome containing the crew from the newly renamed McKay-Taggart-Knight Security Services. (I so want a job.) I’ll even be a nice knotty girl and give you a list at the end of my review of all of the novels, novellas, and even a cookbook! (Thank-You Sean! ♥ ) Honestly, this is one of my absolute favorite series, and I’ve been reading it since Sean seduced Grace in The Dom Who Loved Me. (My heart STILL belongs to Liam O’Donnell, I just love that sexy Irishman. *A Dom Is Forever*) As I was saying, we are now at book 13, and this time it’s dark, sexy and broody Russian Nick Markovic. For those of you who need a quick reminder, Nick was one of the operatives along on the mission to rescue Ten. His partner, and lover Des is killed during that op. We now move across the pond to London to the Knight part of the operation, Nick stays mostly to his rooms and drinks far too much vodka. Not only is he thinking of Des and what she was mixed-up in, but he’s also thinking of her cousin Hayley. He had one amazing night with Hayley five years earlier, and almost had a shot at a different life. But, not wanting to subject Hayley to dangers from his past and a chance at vengeance, he walked away. Now, Hayley finds herself in a whole lot of trouble. She has no home, no job, and is on the run from people who want her dead and she isn’t quite sure why. She only knows that there is one person who can protect her, so she shows up at Nick’s doorstep asking for help. The question is, can he keep her safe from himself? As usual, this was a completely engrossing, entertaining page-turner that I couldn’t put down. Lexi writes the most amazing characters full of sex appeal, wit, and full of life. They are alpha males who are dominant, yet tender, brilliant at their jobs, yet have demons just like the rest of us that show their vulnerable side. The women are strong yet submissive, have backbones of steel, yet are warm, loving and accepting. And oh so smart. And don’t get me started on Ian Taggart. He just brings the whole motley crew together like a dominant, wise (as*), man you never want to cross, best friend you could ever have, father. One of the best books this year, I hope the series never ends.

Another erotic and exciting romance in the Masters and Mercenaries series. Lexi Blake infuses the high tension with humor in the London Gardens headquarters of McKay, Taggert, and Knight. The extended visit of Ian "Big Taggart", is wife, and kids with their blood-thirsty ways make for fun times. The Hero, of "For His Eyes Only", Nickolai, has a lot of baggage with feelings of unworthiness, inadequacy, and guilt. In his homeland of Russian Nick's known as "The Butcher" a moniker he earned honestly. His one true love is an innocent professor of history in Seattle. Hayley has compared every man to Nick since he left her, five years ago. Nick chose her older cousin, Desiree, her wild ways, and vengeance over Hayley's pure love and peace. He too never forgot her. But with the life he's led, since their parting, he knows they could never have a happy ending. "For His Eyes Only" has a quick pace, Action, a Second Chance at Love, and lots of Erotic BDSM goodness. The McKay, Taggert, and Knight family's London branch is in full swing in The Garden. Lexi Blake has sprinkled the groundwork for the next installment of the Masters and Mercenaries series throughout the novel. The characters are strong with many insecurities and vulnerabilities to overcome. Hayley's always felt she wasn't good enough to be fully loved, always being passed back and forth between her parents. She also felt overshadowed by her larger-than-life her older cousin, Des, who she idolized but could never compete with. Nick loved Des, but she always held him at arms length leaving their relationship "open". He was also tormented by acts he committed that made him feel tarnished and unworthy of love and happiness. Add in Lexi Blake's witty dialog and colorful characters and … Bliss. "For His Eyes Only" is spicy hot and a sweet and bittersweet second chance romance. The BDSM section is hot, Hot, HOT as expected from Lexi Blake. Every Masters and Mercenaries book is definitely a no-brainer One-Click. The characters are quick witted, with easy and playful banter and delightful macabre senses of humor. All of the characters are different, charming, and multifaceted adding so much to this intriguing and deliciously fast paced story. Ian and Charlotte Taggert are always a good time to have around. This Romantic Thriller will keep you on your toes! To read the entire review please visit: This novel was provided, voluntarily read, and honestly reviewed

Oh my! I love the Masters and Mercenaries series and so happy to be able to read Nick and Hayley’’s story.The darkness that Nick holds gets a little bit painful. I am pretty sure I was hurting through some of the scenes in the book almost as much as the characters. We all know Des, Hayley’s cousin, was a bit twisted in her own way. I feel that she thought she was just trying to protect Hayley when she had Nick stay away from her. But oh how things change when the years pass by. When Hayley is suddenly back on Nick’s life, it seems Nick’s world tilts a little. Nick is trying to fight what he feels. As I always said time after time, the heart wants what it wants. Even if we feel unworthy of it, love can pick you a soulmate. One thing I love about following a book series, you get to revisit some characters you have read about. It is like visiting with family that you have not seen in a long time. So I was ecstatic to see some of my favorite guys make their appearance. Nick struggles so much with Hayley close by. Des was not a favorite of mine, but I love Hayley. Oh the things Nick says and does has my heart swooning. There is a lot of yummy sexy time, but there is a lot of regret and heartache too. I was all over the place. Being a Lexi Blake fan, I am so happy that as these series go on and they do not get boring or old. You get something new and exciting each and every time! This is a must read and I was so happy to get my hands on this book and get lost in book world! I truly love Lexi’s book.
