A woman in danger...

Serena Brooks is a bestselling author of erotic fiction. She knows how to write a happy ending but hasn't managed to find one of her own. Divorced and alone, she has no one to turn to when a stalker begins to threaten her life. The cops don't believe her. Her ex-husband thinks she's making the whole story up. She has no one left to turn to except a pair of hired bodyguards. They promise to guard her body, but no one can protect her heart.

Two men in search of love...

Adam Miles and Jacob Dean are halves of a whole. They've spent their entire adult lives searching for the one woman who can handle them both. Adam is the playful, indulgent lover, while Jacob is the possessive, loving Dom. When Serena comes into their lives, Adam is certain that she's the one. But Jacob's past comes back to haunt them all. He is suspicious of Serena's story, and his concerns are driving a wedge between him and Adam. But when the stalker strikes, they will have to come together or lose each other forever...

Omg, I absolutely love the menage brothers! Sexy as hell doesn't do them justice! I loved how Jake and Adam were a team, and how through out the whole book even through the struggles and the disagreements, they worked it out! The way Lexi wrote the two characters to depend on each was a sort of beautiful relationship in and of itself, but then adding Serena as the missing peice of their otherwise happy life.... Genius! Adam's affection and sensitivity was beautiful and Jake's protection and vunerabilty was compasionate! But Serena's strength, dedication, acceptance and willingness to forgive the boys when they act like royal douchbags... which they do because men cant have feelings and function resonably at the same time.....anyways Sernea was what made their relationship what is was, a loving functional family, no matter how unconventional it seemed. Love is love, and theirs turns out to be a wonderful story. It has attraction, affection, deception, secrecy, devotion, betrayal, redemption, and of course HEA!!!

First off Adam and Jake are smoking hot and luckily for Serena they are given her case. Adam falls hard and fast for Serena and believes that she is the one who can complete the family that Jake and Adam want to build. Jake is not so sure. And what about Serena? Can a relationship with two men really work? Can the threesome trust each other enough to make their love last forever? This is my all time favorite menage story because Serena is a BD/SM writer and has written several erotic menage novels herself and was always curious about what it would be like to be with two men. Well Adam and Jake show her just how good it can be when she is introduced to a whole new lifestyle at club "sanctum". Serena also This story has so many twists and turns with a crazy stalker on the loose that not only threatens Serena's life but also damages her credibility to where no one believes her. I loved that the main character in this book is an author of erotica. I wonder if Lexi Blake dances when she is plotting her next book. I know I will be dancing when the next book in this series comes out in October.

Wonderful story, loved the characters. The story draws you in and keeps you there throughout the whole book. I got to the end thinking "what, it's over, NO, I want more". I have bought 2 more of Lexi Blake's books after this and loved them just as much. Ms. Blake has a real gift for story telling.

Jake and Adam are close. They do everything together. Work together, live together, even take their women together. And they've decided they want a woman permanently, together. In walks Serena. She is an erotic BDSM/Menage romance author. Sounds like she's right up their alley, right? Only, she needs their help. She has a stalker, and its getting pretty scary! Jake, Adam and Serena are great together, but they are all wary, each having been burned in the past. Lack of communications, jumping to conclusions, and stubbornness all play a part in almost destroying something that could be amazing. There were places in the book, that I just wasn't sure if there was going to be an HEA or not. I was pulling for them, but my emotions were all over the place. I was so frustrated by them at times. (I mean, I really wanted to smack those guys upside the head at times! What are they thinking!) This book is full of twists and turns, and I never knew what was coming next! The series revolves around a group that I would guess would be classified as PIs, so there is plenty of action and suspense along with the all of the romance and love I could handle. And the stalker! I never saw that coming! (No details, you're just gonna have to read it to find out!) This book was both fun and serious, meaningful, and light-hearted at times. I can't wait to dive into the next M&M book!

Lexi Blake's "The Men With the Golden Cuffs" is the second tale in the Masters and Mercenaries series. It can be read as a a standalone (I did, but you can bet I'll be reading the rest of this series ASAP!). I love the chemistry with Jake, Adam, and Serena. If you like the Maya Banks Sweet series, you'll love this. This story has a lot of detail and insanely hawt nookie scenes! This will definitely be fueling my fantasies for a good while!

I don'r usually read menage but this one is really fun to read. It has passion, suspense, a murderous stalker, & surprised me with it's humor. Serena, jacob, & adam are made for each other, each balancing out the emotional & sexual needs of one another. Serena is divorced, lonely, & in danger. She's sweet & adorable, but when the two overpowering males get on her nerves, she's capable of expressing some zingers that make you laugh out loud. Jacob & adam are to die for! Adam is smooth & sensitive. Jake is rougher, darker & intense. Yes, they are overbearing, but serena is the one for them & they want to love & protect her. In fact, they would do anything for her. The only thing, suspicion falls upon serena's truthfulness. Can adam & jake really trust her? Is serena using them for furthering her career as a writer?

Lexi Blake does it again! In Book 2 of her Masters and Mercenaries Book series we are introduced to Jake and Adam, who are partners at the McKay and Taggart Security Firm. Both are Ex Special Forces. Both are sexy alpha Dom's who love to have ménages. At the start of the book we are introduced to Serena, who is a erotic romance e-novel author. She has come to the McKay & Taggart Security Firm on the urgency of her Publisher because she is being stalked and need protection from this nut job. As soon as Adam and Jake see her they are goners. Serena is in young, divorced women who lives with her dog. She had a terrible relationship with her now ex husband who divorced her because of the books she wanted to write and who is now suing her for money because of said books. She's pretty popular author among the BDSM & Ménage Book lovers. The character development is once again amazingly done. This book is so realistic with its character and the emotions they are going through that you cant help but fall in love with them. While we have to hot alpha men wanting to dominate one women, we also have the romantic suspense story of who is stalking her and why, plus all these other little parts that make up one hugely amazing story. I highly recommend this amazing romantic suspense filled novel!

3.5 Stars. Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog I’m not sure why I have been slacking on this series, I remember buying this ebook as soon as it came out! I have a thing for a good romantic suspense and Lexi Blake mixes that with some pretty hot sex! What could be better? Nevertheless, here I am, a million books behind this series and getting excited all over again to go back in. THE MEN WITH THE GOLDEN CUFFS as you would expect by the name is a permanent menage story. In this case this works well because Adam and Jacob are already a unit. Not together themselves, but they’ve always shared their women and have a common goal in mind. To find the one woman they can both love and that can complement their relationship. They work as a team for McKay-Taggert security and they end up taking a case of an author who needs protection from some pretty serious threats. The mystery of who is behind that (or is this all a PR plot fabricated by the author herself) is still a nagging issue for the men, but on the forefront is the fact they both think she is the perfect submissive for them. Serena writes about BDSM and submission, but she hasn’t lived it herself. Her ex-husband always put her down for her books and she hasn’t given in to her true nature and admitted these are things she wants for herself, not just her characters. This is where I struggled. Serena herself. I wasn’t sold on her completely, she’s not the most assertive character and she might’ve gotten on my nerves a bit. Adam and Jacob on the other hand were a perfect complement to each other in their roles of this menage. One is the strict and serious Dom, the other the more caring and sweet. But both are equally pushy and decisive when it comes to getting in Serena’s bed. A snake, some bad letters and a dead body later we get our resolution. I have to say it wasn’t the most complicated mystery to uncover and I had this plot figured out pretty fast, although I did have some minor surprises in the end. All in all, this was quite an enjoyable read and it reminds me that I love to read this type of erotic romance, with a bit of an edge. Even though I can’t say they were my favorite characters I do find that I enjoy their agency enough to want all those sexy men to see an HEA. I can’t wait to delve more into the series as I’ve heard the books get better as we go forward.

A great story!! I loved Jake, Adam, & Serena's story. The chemistry and stubbornness between the three was interesting and brought just the right amount of humor and frustration for the story. The plot twist was awesome. I was half right about who the culprit was. Serena's characters was lovely and brave, when she needed to be. Jake and Adam sound fun and hot! I can't wait to read the next one in the series and see more of these lively, unforgettable characters.
