  • Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends)
      ~WRITING - PLOT - PACE~So I'll admit I went into this one with a bit of trepidation. Remy was another of this author's uber whores. At least that is pretty much all I remembered about him (lol). I seem to have the memory of an elephant when it comes to this stuff, unfortunately. In any case, it actually ended up being better than I anticipated. Much better. In fact, I would go so far as to say probably one of the best Masters & Mercenaries bo...

    4.5 STARS You look perfect with my rope your only clothing, nothing between us. Do you want to fly, ma chèrie? Because I will take you there.” I'm a sucker for a sexy Cajun, and it just doesn't get any sexier than Remy Guidry. Remy is a great friend, and an even better Dom, but when it comes to affairs of the heart, jaded is an understatement. He doesn't believe in forever anymore and relationships are most definitely a no go. It also doesn...

    “I’m going to want some fairly kinky things from you.” I absolutely LOVED Remy and Lisa’s romance! CLOSE COVER is a standalone novella from Lexi Blake’s INCREDIBLE Masters and Mercenaries series. This sexy, suspenseful, and erotic romance is a full length novel, but it’s a quick and heart-pounding read that left me on the edge of my seat on multiple occasions. Lexi Blake is known for her amazing characters and her impeccable writing, ...

    ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest reviewScintillating! Lexi Blake has done it again as she beautifully masterfully weaves passion, romance and high octane action. Close Cover by Lexi Blake was just everything you could have wanted. Honestly, this book was addicting. The character chemistry and sexual tension was what made this book so realistic and sexy. So if you are looking for one book that will leave you blushing hard then thi...

    I’m a huge fan of Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series; there’s just something about dominant alpha males who kick bad people’s asses for a living and then let off steam in deliciously decadent and kinky ways. But what I also like about these heroes is that they aren’t one-dimensional; it’s not all about sex and violence for them…don’t get me wrong, those two things are a significant part of their identity but there’s ano...
  • Kathleen R.
      Yeah... i felt like a moron for a few chapters when i started this book because i was really trying to figure out why in the world Ian Taggart was so angry in the first place when Remy was giving his notice to quit! So after a few chapters, i finally clued in that this book was part of not only the Masters & Mercenaries series, but also a crossover that allowed other authors to pick and choose some of the characters and finally give them t...

    5 Star Review of Close Cover (Masters and Mercenaries #16) by Lexi Blake Close Cover is book 16 in Lexi Blake’s Masters & Mercenaries series which is one of my all-time favourite series.Nobody does romantic suspense books like Lexi Blake. If you like sexy alpha males, some BDSM, smoking hot scenes and characters that will melt your heart and your panties, then look no further. This is McKay-Taggart operative Remy Guidry and Lisa Daley’s story...
  • Paula D
    Remy has his walls up full time. Remy doesn’t do relationships at all and definitely won’t fall for the innocent Lisa he’s protecting. Lisa might want a family but she definitely loves the feistiness of Remy and is slowly tearing down his walls. Very angst romance that has you hating Remy at one point but then you understand why he is the way he is. Very light bdsm scenes it’s mostly just really dirty talk which is totally hot! In the end...
  • Heather andrews
    Remy gets flustered every once in awhile, “I told her I wasn’t interested and walked back to the locker room.” Stumbled in his haste to get away..." You wouldn't believe it, but when his woman brags about him he gets all embarrassed, "...he did buy me a pizza before blowing my mind in bed. Four times.” Remy actually felt himself flush." I really liked this novella Remy was a possessive man.
  • Ash
    I think its better to read the earlier books. I could not understand many parts or characters. I also did not agree with the way Remy handled the assignment.
  • Kimberly / Love Notes Book Blog
    4-4.25 stars. This was a really good book! This is Remy and Lisa's story. Lisa is the sister of Will and Laurel Daley, who both had previous books in this series. She is an accountant who discovered that her boss was cooking the books and doing business with the mob. She turned them into the police, but it put her in the limelight and possibly in danger with some very bad guys. Remy works for McKay-Taggart, but will be soon be moving home to Loui...

    ***ARC Provided by the Author and InkSlingerPR***4.5 StarsLet's just be honest...if it is by Lexi Blake, I am going to enjoy it. If it takes place in the Masters & Mercenaries world? Well, I am going to enjoy it. So, it's no surprise to anyone that I enjoyed this. Close Cover is the first (although I am not even sure that is totally true) of the crossover books written in the McKay/Taggart world. I say it is the first as I have read all of them, ...

    Close Cover (Masters and Mercenaries #16) by Lexi Blake4.5 starsM/F BDSM (light) romanceTriggers: Attempted MurderI was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.Remy is a tough nut. He is the most stoic character in these cross over books that I've come across, thus far. He is rugged, determined and takes on a lot of responsibility. Despite having dominating tendencies, he was burned very badly by a woman before and he intends to make...
  • White Hot Reads
    4 Butterfly Stars Close Cover is a great read! It's full of sexiness, BDSM, love, emotion and so much more. I promise you it isn't your stereotypical BDSM read. I'm so in love with Remy Guidry and his accent. Growing up close to Louisiana, a real French-Cajun accent is HOTTTT (and fun). There is something so soothing about the Bayou and Lexi does an impeccable job of taking me back to my roots. There were moments I wasn't sure that Remy could rec...

    Final crossover....This author and my love of the Masters and Mercenaries Series was the main reason why I rushed to read this Crossover Collection....overall I have enjoyed the mixing of the different worlds and meeting new, to me, authors along the way, but this book I have kept to the end as a special treat...I was not disappointed..Remy is a bodyguard for McKay-Taggart..historically he has been one night stand and leave ‘em kind of guy unti...
  • Amber
    OH EM GEE REMY!!!! Yes, I had to say it that way because it rhymed. And because Remy is just so amazing! I can just imagine his Cajun accent and the French and oh it's magic. But I have a thing for foreign languages and accents anyway. I’m not one for audiobooks but I’d be all over listening to this as an audio book! *hint hint*This one didn’t strike me as quite as BDSM-y as some of the other McKay-Taggart couples. Maybe just because Lisa w...

    ~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~This is the sixteenth book in the series, and introduces the crossover series that is being released with a number of super talented authors. I am so happy to be reading these books and reviewing them. I am huge M and M fan, and this was a wonderful addition to the series. I love that we have been reading the last few books in preparation for these stories. Remy is nearly...

    4.5 stars. Well, I devoured this one. Love Lexi Blake, her stories always drag me in and make it so that I get nothing done until I have turned the final page. Appearances by characters from past novels keep the stories cohesive. I have no idea how LB keeps track of the time lines in all of these books. I also love it when Ian shows up to offer his advice and assistance while trying to contain his wild tribe. A bit of fun to keep the books for ge...
  • The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)
    I really did not care from Remy at first. He is VERY judgmental and it was a huge turn off. But, he is willing to own up to his misjudgment. I liked Lisa. She is smart and resilient. The BDSM is pretty tame in the story (which IMO was good because I didn't want a story about BDSM; this is a romantic suspense whose characters happen to play in the BDSM lifestyle)

    I have been a fan of the Masters and Mercenaries series for awhile now, so I was excited to see that Remy was going to get his turn at finding his HEA!The sexy Cajun Dom has been on Lisa's radar for months, but when she approached him at Sanctum he didn't exactly handle turning her down with finesse and that hurt still lingers with her. Remy is a really good guy and there is no doubt he is attracted to Lisa, but he has some hangups that hold him ...
  • Sarah
    It’s no secret I love Lexi Blake. I’d been looking forward to this crossover event and her book, in particular, for some time. By any other standard this book would be excellent, by the standard set by Lexi in this and other series, however, it just didn’t quite live up to what I’ve come to expect from her.Close Cover is the sixteenth book in Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. This book can be read as a standalone, there are c...

    A few books ago in the Masters and Mercenaries series, McKay Taggert set up a bodyguard - a.k.a. close cover - division and staffed it with several talented, sexy men. We've met all these men, peripherally at least, in previous books and novellas in the series. This was all a well-planned set-up for Lexi's Masters and Mercenaries crossover collection that she worked on with Larissa Ione, Corinne Michaels, J. Kenner, Carly Phillips and Susan Stoke...

    Rating: 4.5 StarsBesides the book description there’s a Foreword by another author. If you don’t know who she is you might want to check her out – after you read this book of course. One thing I’ve learned is you don’t miss what’s written before the story starts. This is so true with this book especially when you read the Acknowledgements. If I hadn’t read it then I wouldn’t have learned something about the author. The sad part be...

    This book.....I don't even know where to begin! This is Lexi Blake's book in the Crossover Series that she is doing with several other authors. It is book 16 in her Masters and Mercenaries series, and I knew going in, that I'd love it, because I've adored all of the other books in the series. But Remy.....Remy begins the story with a hard ass persona, you know what I'm talking about, all gruff, and closed off, not making a connection with anyone ...
