Jill has changed, but his desire for her is still insatiable. Jill, shattered by his past rejection, can't trust Ryan, but she needs the job. Back in the community where she once felt safe and secure, she longs for the life she lost and the man she loved.
Ryan is presented with an opportunity to restore his wealth and name, but it could cost him his last chance at rebuilding a life with the woman he loves. When the secrets Jill has carefully hidden from Ryan are exposed, a terrible twist of fate might take her out of his life forever.

I've really enjoyed this series. The stories are interesting and I really like the completed relationship aspect of each book while continuing the thread of the hunt for a bad guy. And the heat is a nice sizzle. This novella was one of my favorite stories (really laughed at Ian's conversation with Jill near the end), but then Lexi had to go and give yet another heroine body image issues. Fat ass, saggy boobs. Really? This is supposed to be fantasy. Erotic imagery with an interesting story surrounding it. Why do all your heroes have perfect, hard physiques while the females feel squishy and a little chubby. You ruined the last love scene for me. Because while I appreciate that women don't have to look perfect to be loved. THIS IS FICTION. Give us great looking heroes AND heroines. Make the secondary characters imperfect if you think you need to appeal to every female's self esteem. Ugh.
I like the series, but I think a full book is much better
Too short to really develop the story
Ryan West did a good job
GET THE REST OF THE BOOKS IN THE SERIES
I have followed the whole Masters and Mercenaries series by Lexi Blake and really enjoy the offshoot novellas into other characters. Can a Dom be saved by a sub --YES! Ryan West does a splendid job on the narration. It is a standalone novella, but I think your experience would be greatly enhanced if you read the rest of the series. Just sayin' :)
I may be addicted to audiobooks. I love my husband and my kids but I get a chance to escape with the books and be someone else for a while
Finally we get to learn more about all the other people who work at sanctum.
Although I'd never heard about Ryan in any of the other books, he's a great addition to the family of Doms and subs at sanctum. Ryan West, as usual, does a phenomenal job with the narration... almost makes you wonder if he is in fact a true dom.... his voice is sexy enough to melt my panties.... yum!
