The Dom who loved me Review

The Dom who loved me (Masters & Mercenaries #1)
By: Lexi Blake

A routine mission…

Sean Taggart is hunting a deadly terrorist, and his only lead is the lovely Grace Hawthorne. She's the executive assistant for an employment agency Sean suspects is a front for illegal activities. To get the truth, he is going to have to get very close to Grace, a task he is all too eager to undertake when he discovers her deliciously submissive nature.

…turns into a dangerous seduction.

Soon, Grace Hawthorne is living a double life. By day, she is the widowed mother of two college-aged sons. By night, she submits to Sean's every dark desire. She's living out her wildest fantasies of pleasure—intimate acts of trust she's only read about. As passion engulfs her, a murderer strikes, and Grace learns that Sean has a deeply hidden agenda. Will Sean choose his mission and break her heart or be the Master of her dreams?



Have you ever noticed that erotic novels always seem to be chock full of steamy sex scenes a not a whole lot else? It's like the author puts their all into mapping out every minute detail of the couplings in the books but when it comes to the plot of the story they're all tapped out of ideas. Let me tell you, this was not one of those books. I was impressed that not only did this book have a plot line that made sense to the story, it was also a decent enough one that even without the sex I would still have been interested in reading this novel.

That being said, there were definitely some really racy scenes. There was a couple of times when I blushed while reading, and looked around to make sure no one was reading over my shoulder. How I would have explained what I was reading to someone if they had been snooping is beyond me. One thing is for sure, the author had no qualms at all about using whatever vocabulary she so desired. And it was fabulous.

One of my favorite things about this book was the physical attributes of the characters. The author describes the main character, Grace, as being slightly overweight and her counterpart, Sean, as being as fit as can be. It gets so old to read about these tiny women and fit men as if these types of men wouldn't find an average body type just as appealing as a petite one. I also liked the Grace was self conscious of her age and being in a relationship with a younger man. It added some realism to the characters and their story. 

In the end while I did enjoy the book I don't know that I would go out and buy the rest of the series. I wasn't invested in the characters enough to wonder about their fate beyond what the author wrote about in this book.
