The sizzling second novel in a sexy new contemporary romance series from New York Times best-selling author Lexi Blake.

Brandon Lawless is a man on a mission: obtain the information that will clear his father's name. He's willing to do whatever it takes - even seduce his enemy's personal assistant, the beautiful and innocent Carly Hendricks. But with her beguiling smile and captivating intelligence, Brandon soon realizes he doesn't want to deceive Carly, he wants to win her over - both in the boardroom and the bedroom.

Then a twisted crime leaves Carly vulnerable and Brandon finds himself reeling. The stakes of his mission are now life or death - Carly's life. And Brandon realizes he's lost his heart to an amazing woman and his plan must succeed, because the stakes are no longer just revenge, but a once in a lifetime love.

Another must read for any Lexi Blake fan!

I have yet to read a Lexi Blake novel that I did not love. This was no exception. This spin off of the Masters and Mercenaries series continues to give us everything we have come to expect from a Lexi Blake story. Action. Intrigue. Hot, sometimes kinky, sex. Romance. And of course, a mostly happy ending.

There is still a brother - Drew - who is "alone." But, there are hints that they may be rectified.

The ah's, oh no's, look out, sighs, and relief that all the good guys were alright, keep me enthralled. Another must read for any Lexi Blake fan. Though this is audio and I found it just as enthralling and riveting. The Narrator did a good job.

After the tease at the end of this book, I can't wait to get into the next on. Good job.

Excellent all around and listen/narrator

This story held my interest but it wasn't as good as some of the other series. I still really loved it. I think the narrator Alexandra Shawnee adds a lot. She is very expressive.

No Satisfaction

First, the narrator had a pleasant voice but she was not suited for this book. particularly attempting to do male voices. Not horrible but she didn't enhance the listening experience.

Second, the plot revolved around 4 siblings who were orphaned, then separated after their parents were killed. Since the father was a computer genius and the mother had been a lawyer, it was unrealistic & unbelievable that wealthy, educated parents had NOT prepared wills with designated guardians for their small children.

The main focus of Satisfaction was the developing relationship between Carly and Brandon, one of Lawless brothers. Unfortunately, Brandon morphed into a dominating control freak the very first day they had sex. Not sadistic, life threatening BDSM (like in the author's other series) but violent and degrading enough to ruin the romantic mood.

Carly's character had potential to be interesting; for the first 4 hours or so she seemed to have an actual backbone under her calm, unruffled demeanor. However, Carly soon crumbled into a pathetic, lovesick wimp who confused Brandon's desire to posses & control her body with genuine love and affection. Hint: real men don't hit women or children.

While Lexi Blake is an incredibly gifted writer with an unexpected sense of humor, she doesn't appear to understand that steamy sex does not equate to inflicting pain and humiliation on a partner. More importantly, a man's personality and integrity does NOT change from room to room. When a man treats his lover with overt contempt in the bedroom, ultimately he will start abusing her everywhere.

Most creepy moment: when Brandon gets sexually excited telling Carly about his brother-in-law's habit of beating and whipping his (Brandon's) sister. Real alpha (in the literal sense of the word) men are protective and caring, not cruel and aggressive.

Dual POV

I really loved this. I just wish if the book is in dual POV then the narrative should be in dual POV. The female voice in the male POV is just off putting to me.

Great book

This was a great book. That's narrator ruined the audio book with her bland voice. She did not bring g the story to life like the book and story deserved. Please do not use this narrator again.

Good story

I wished I had read this first. The narration is horrible. I can hardly listen to the story for the grating, over dramatic narrator. Seriously, please get another narrator for the next book!
