Book review - Master No by Lexi Blake (BDSM romance) - 5 stars

Master No by Lexi Blake 
BDSM romance 
5/5 stars 


Disavowed by those he swore to protect…

Tennessee Smith is a wanted man. Betrayed by his government and hunted by his former employer, he’s been stripped of everything he holds dear. If the CIA finds him, they’re sure to take his life as well. His only shot at getting it all back is taking down the man who burned him. He knows just how to get to Senator Hank McDonald and that’s through his daughter, Faith. In order to seduce her, he must become something he never thought he’d be—a Dom.

Overcome by isolation and duty…

All her life, Dr. Faith “Mac” McDonald has felt alone, even among her family. Dedicating herself to helping others and making a difference in the world has brought her some peace, but a year spent fighting the Ebola virus in West Africa has taken a toll. She’s come home for two months of relaxation before she goes back into the field. After holding so many lives in her hands, nothing restores her like the act of submission. Returning to her favorite club, Mac is drawn to the mysterious new Dom all the subs are talking about, Master No. In the safety of his arms, she finds herself falling head over heels in love.

Forced to choose between love and revenge…

On an exclusive Caribbean island, Ten and Mac explore their mutual attraction, but her father’s plots run deeper than Ten could possibly have imagined. With McKay-Taggart by his side, Ten searches for a way to stop the senator, even as his feelings for Mac become too strong to deny. In the end, he must choose between love and revenge—a choice that will change his life forever.


Wow! Master No is an awesome book, I didn't want it to end. Regular readers will know I love Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries series, so when I say that this book is my favourite book in the series you'll know it's pretty damn good! This is ex CIA agent Ten's story, and it's just as exciting and action packed as I expected. There is a lot going on in this book, and some of the events are heartbreaking - the author had me crying buckets at one point. There are a lot of twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat - and OMG what an ending!

Former CIA agent Tennessee Smith has been betrayed by the country he served and he's out for revenge. Senator Hank McDonald destroyed Ten's career and now he's going to destroy the senator and prove his own innocence. His plan involves using the senator's daughter Faith to gain access to their private Caribbean island. He poses as a Dom to gain Faith's trust and soon finds himself falling for   her - but the doctor is far too good and innocent for a damaged man like Ten. But in the end he has to choose between Faith and his plans for revenge.

Ten is a great character and I love his relationship with the McKay-Taggart crew - especially his friendship with Big Tag. I didn't really approve of the way he lied to and used Faith, but I know why he did it. But when he started to care about her I just wanted to give him a slap and tell him to come clean! You can't help but like Faith, she is a truly good person who's dedicated her life to caring for those less fortunate than her.  Faith and Ten are good together, but there are lots of obstacles in their path - including Faith's father. 

Master No is a real emotional roller coaster ride - one minute I'd be laughing at the McKay-Taggart gang's banter, then the next minute I'd be in tears. It's definitely a stand out book in a five star series, Master No is a must read. Five fabulous stars!

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
