Aidan O’Malley walked away from his fiancée, Lexi, and their best friend, Lucas, after a night of passion left him shaken to his core. Years later, Aidan returns home from Iraq haunted by all he has lost. The enemy broke his body, destroying his dreams of a career in music. Worse still, he lost Lexi and Lucas. That damage he’d done all by himself. While he can’t restore what combat took from him, he’s determined to reclaim the two loves of his life.
Lucas Cameron is a changed man. After connecting with his brother, he found the discipline to get his life on track. His legal career is flourishing, but his love life is a train wreck. The woman he loves is spiraling out of control. After Aidan abandoned them, Lucas and Lexi clung together but no matter how hard he tries, Lucas can’t find a way to heal the wounds that Lexi carries.
Lexi Moore feels like a jigsaw puzzle with too many missing pieces. Losing Aidan was hard, but the true reason for her shattered spirit is a secret she only shares with her beloved Lucas. She knows she is drowning and the time has come to heal, but the holes in her heart hold her back from moving on. Shedding the burden she carries is her only hope for a happy future, but she fears she will never have the strength to reveal her secret.
When Aidan walks back into their lives, Lucas and Lexi know everything is about to change. But as they fight to reconcile their past and reclaim what they lost, a vicious predator stalks Lexi. In order to stop the killer, all three must confront the secrets they’ve carried…before they’re buried by them. In this re-release, Lexi Blake continues her combination of the Bliss series with the Masters and Mercenaries.
When Lexi Moore screwed up yet again at the Club, club owner Julian Lodge and her stepfather, Jack Barnes agreed that the only way she and her boyfriend, Lucas, Jack’s brother, could continue at the facility would be if they accepted a new master, Master A as their Dom.
What neither Lexi nor Lucas realized at first was that Master A was none other than Aiden, the man who had abandoned them after a night of great pleasure because he was afraid of what people would say if he was in a ménage with both a woman and a man.
When Lexi is shot and her apartment trashed, Aiden takes both his subs to his ranch, away from danger-or so he thinks. But all three members of the trio have secrets in their past that may be linked to the incidents. Can Aiden prove to both Lucas and Lexi that he really has changed and will be with them for the long haul while protecting them from a killer?
This is one of the author’s better efforts in the Siren series. Lexi is portrayed as a big-hearted woman with a sarcastic mouth and some serious issues due to an incident in her past. Lucas is the most loving man ever. Sexually a switch, he tries to be the Dom Lexi needs, but he isn’t really strong enough to master her as she needs. It takes Aiden to make the trio work, but he has his own issues, and watching him come to accept that his subs can help him is fascinating. We are also treated to glimpses of Ian Taggart and twins Ben and Chase Dawson.
While some of the entwined books just make brief reference to the characters in the other series, this one features the other characters all the way through. This is a thoroughly delightful read with lots of angst, steaming hot sex scenes and likable characters, interwoven with some scary scenes and flashes of the author’s laugh out loud humor.
