Just One Taste by Lexi Blake 
BDSM romance 
5/5 stars 


One Hot Chef….

Eric Vail has always loved a challenge. After leaving the Navy, he mastered his passion for cooking. As the sous chef at Top, one of Dallas’s hottest restaurants, his skills are pushed to the limit every night. Unfortunately, his ultimate prize still eludes him. Server Deena Holmes is the sweetest thing he’s seen in forever, but she’s as distant as she is beautiful. When they’re put together in the same training class at the infamous club Sanctum, he knows this is his shot. And this former SEAL never misses.

A Woman Who Lost Her Taste for Love…

Deena thinks Eric is the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen, but her heart has been burned too many times before. She’s sworn off relationships for good and she can’t trust herself with a man that easy to fall in love with. She takes a spot as a trainee at Sanctum in the hopes of finding a safe place to explore and experiment. When she discovers her partner is the same chef she dreams about every night, Deena knows she may have bitten off more than she can chew.

A Perfect Recipe for Passion

While exploring the world of Sanctum, Eric and Deena find themselves learning about each other and finding an intimacy neither expected. But when the ghosts of her past resurface, old wounds are reopened. Can their newfound love survive when it’s put to the test? 


Lexi Blake welcomes us back to the world of Masters and Mercenaries with another fantastic story from the spin off series Topped, which is set in Sean Taggart's restaurant Top. Both main characters work at the restaurant, Deena as a server and Eric as Sean's sous chef.  Eric has strong feelings for Deena and has been trying to get close to her for months, but she has sworn off men after being hurt in the past. When they both sign up for beginners classes at BDSM club Sanctum, Deena is shocked when she's paired up with Eric. She begins to see another side of nice guy Eric and she knows she's going to struggle to resist him. Can Eric win Deena's heart and overcome her past?

Eric is a great character and Dom - caring, nurturing and a real sweetheart, he also has a sexy dominant side to his personality. Deena was also very likeable, I really felt for her and how she'd been hurt in the past. I did get a little bit frustrated with her lack of trust though, but it was understandable. I enjoyed the interactions between Eric and Deena, and their chemistry was off the charts.

This is another must read book from Lexi Blake, I definitely recommend it to readers who enjoy BDSM romances. Steamy, emotional and full of fun - I couldn't put this book down. Just One Taste receives five sexy stars.

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