Love the Way You Spy (Masters & Mercenaries: New Recruits, #1; Masters & Mercenaries, #27) by Lexi Blake ~ Book Review


Love the Way You Spy by Lexi Blake is now live! 

Tasha Taggart isn't a spy. That's her sisters' job. Tasha's support role is all about keeping them alive, playing referee when they fight amongst themselves, and soothing the toughest boss in the world. Working for the CIA isn't as glamorous as she imagined, and she's more than a little lonely. So when she meets a charming man in a bar the night before they start their latest op, she decides to give in to temptation. The night was perfect until she discovers she's just slept with the target of their new investigation. Her sisters will never let her hear the end of this. Even worse, she has to explain the situation to her overprotective father, who also happens to be their boss.

Dare Nash knew exactly how his week in Sydney was going to go—attending boring conferences to represent his family’s business interests and eating hotel food alone. Until he falls under the spell of a stunning and mysterious American woman. Something in Tasha’s eyes raises his body temperature every time she looks at him. She’s captivating, and he’s committed to spending every minute he can with her on this trip, even if her two friends seem awfully intense. He doesn’t trust easily, but it’s not long before he can imagine spending the rest of his life with her.

When Dare discovers Tash isn't who she seems, the dream turns into a nightmare. She isn't the only one who deceived him, and now he's in the crosshairs of adversaries way out of his league. He can't trust her, but it might take Tasha and her family to save his life and uncover the truth.

The next generation of Taggart’s followed in Big Tag’s footsteps, and this first book of the series was phenomenal. Dare and Tasha are magnificent together.

There is so much I want to say about this story, but little that I can say without giving spoilers, so let's see what I can do while dancing around that line. First, we have Taggart's girls all grown up and working for the agency. Kala, Kenzie, and Tasha, along with Lou, Cooper, Tristian and Zach, are in Australia to begin working on a case, but the night before, Kala, Tasha, and Lou decide to head out to a bar to let loose a bit. That is when Tasha meets Dare and has a fantastic night with him. Only to find out the next day that their mission has changed, and now Dare is their person of interest, which means Tasha has to take the lead in the field instead of being behind the computer where she usually is.

Dare Nash is in Australia on business at his father's request; he's not thrilled with it, but when he meets Tasha, things start looking up.

The chemistry between Dare and Tasha is sublime, and I would venture to say it's close to what her adoptive parents have. If you have read any of the M&M series, whether it was the Original Masters and Mercenaries Series, the Masters & Mercenaries: The Forgotten Series, or any of the other spin-off series, you'll want to read this book (series) as well. It has all of the action of the Forgotten Series, and all of the Heat of the M&M Series rolled into one. 

I highly recommend this book to those who have read the M&M Series, Adult readers who enjoy STEAMY Romantic Suspense Reads, BDSM Romances, or Law Enforcement Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
