Juliana O’Neil’s promising future was burned away in the heat of battle. She had been an officer with a bright future in the military, but now she is struggling to survive. Her husband gone and her career in shambles, she finds a job at Top as a hostess and tries to put together the pieces of her life. The last thing she needs is any kind of male attention, but she can’t help but be amused at her neighbor and coworker’s lothario antics. Not that she would have anything to do with him, at least not for more than one night.
Javier Leones doesn’t understand monogamy. No woman could ever be enough for his endless libido, but he has to admit Juliana has his attention. For reasons he doesn’t fully understand, he can’t seem to get the gorgeous redhead with the sad eyes out of his head. After one scorching night together, he realizes he’ll never be able to get her out of his system. But with his reputation, he fears she’ll never see him as more than a one-night stand.
When their passions collide, these new lovers will be forced to confront Juliana’s past and come to terms with Javier’s present. Will they find their way or will this reservation be canceled at the last minute?
A Masters and Mercenaries: Topped Novel by Lexi Blake
Loved Jules and Javier!!!
Sexy, steamy, and the perfect amount of angst, this book is phenomenal!
It’s rare we see female wounded warriors, but Lexi took Jules’s character and not only put her in that position, but she was kick butt too. She’s strong, a little insecure with her disability yet, but with Javier nearby, he shows her all she can be, while she helps him see how love can truly be. I loved catching up with previous characters from this series, and can’t wait to see what Lexi has in store for us next!! This is definitely a must read!!!
Best series ever!!!
4 stars for - At Your Service - the fourth book in The Topped series which is a spin-off of Masters and Mercenaries by the one and only Lexi Blake!! There is over fifteen books in this long running, fantastic series of espionage with a side of kink that I can’t recommend highly enough and nearly every book can be read as a stand-alone too.
Javier is the resident ladies man at Topped and has “sampled” almost all the ladies if you know what I mean. When a newly discharged war veteran arrives at Topped Javier is taken by her beauty and determination, but Jules isn’t buying it - refusing to succumb to his playboy charms.
This was a story of acceptance, love and forgiveness that hits you right in the feels. Then add in all those smoking hot sexy times and it will make you swoon for sure. Can’t wait to see what Ms. Blake has got for us next :)
