Book review - You Only Love Twice by Lexi Blake (BDSM romance) 5 stars

You Only Love Twice by Lexi Blake 
BDSM romance 
5/5 stars 


A woman on a mission

Phoebe Graham is a specialist in deep cover espionage, infiltrating the enemy, observing their practices, and when necessary eliminating the threat. Her latest assignment is McKay-Taggart Security Services, staffed with former military and intelligence operatives. They routinely perform clandestine operations all over the world but it isn’t until Jesse Murdoch joins the team that her radar starts spinning. Unfortunately so does her head. He’s gorgeous and sweet and her instincts tell her to trust him but she’s been burned before, so he’ll stay where he belongs—squarely in her sights.

A man on the run

Since the moment his Army unit was captured by jihadists, Jesse’s life has been a nightmare. Forced to watch as those monsters tortured and killed his friends, something inside him snapped. When he’s finally rescued, everyone has the same question—why did he alone survive? Clouded in accusations and haunted by the faces of those he failed, Jesse struggles in civilian life until McKay-Taggart takes him in. Spending time with Phoebe, the shy and beautiful accountant, makes him feel human for the first time in forever. If someone so innocent and sweet could accept him, maybe he could truly be redeemed.

A love they never expected

When Phoebe receives the order to eliminate Jesse, she must choose between the job she’s dedicated her life to and the man who’s stolen her heart. Choosing Jesse would mean abandoning everything she believes in, and it might mean sharing his fate because a shadowy killer is dedicated to finishing the job started in Iraq. 


Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries series is one of my all time favourite series, I just love this group of sexy Doms. It's an action packed, suspense filled romp that kept me on the edge of my seat. The plot line is complex with some unexpected twists and turns, it really is an exciting story. The romantic aspect of the story is great too, with some seriously steamy scenes and sizzling chemistry. Lexi Blake is one of the best BDSM authors around. She obviously knows the lifestyle well and creates realistic, emotional stories with tough men and even stronger women.

 I've been waiting for Jesse's story for a while so I was excited to see which woman stole his heart. I must admit I wasn't sure about Phoebe initially, I love Jesse so I was a bit protective of him! She soon won me around though, I actually really liked her. She was a great character with many layers to her and she was a good match for soft hearted Jesse. 

You Only Love Twice is such a great book, it is a must read for me. Five stars!
