A loss he can’t forget.
Since losing his twin brother, Theo, in the line of duty, Case Taggart has felt dead inside. The former Navy SEAL has dedicated himself to his family and their business but he can’t help but feel stuck as he watches everyone else move on with their lives. Only meeting the beautiful Mia brings Case out of his misery, until he discovered she was just a reporter looking for a story. Betrayed, he turned his back on her and never looked back.
An attraction she can’t deny.
Mia Danvers can’t get Case Taggart out of her head. Though they hadn’t been lovers, she’d felt more for him than for any man she’d ever met. Growing up in the shadow of her over-protective, older brothers, she felt free when she was with Case and she longs to feel that way again. She knows that if she can find any trace of Theo Taggart, Case will be forced to let her back into his life. Months of searching have finally paid off and she knows this is her second chance.
A desperate search.
Case and Mia follow the clues they hope will lead them to Theo and the villainous Hope McDonald, but the search becomes increasingly dangerous. From Dallas to South America and beyond, dark forces work against them and threaten their lives. With each step forward, Case and Mia are pulled closer together and forced to confront their mutual attraction. But when the truth about Theo is revealed, Case may have to make a choice between his brother and the only woman he’s ever loved.
A Masters and Mercenaries Novel by Lexi Blake
4 Star Review by Ashley
I'm gonna get this out of the way early- Dominance Never Dies is the first book in Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries series that I've read. Crazy, trust me I know. But you can bet I'm gonna go back and read the rest because- just wow! That being said, it took me a bit to keep who was who and the connections between the different "companies" straight but I got it sorted.
Mystery. Desire. Half-Truths. That is just the first chapter! Mia and Case are two sides of the same coin- stubborn and bold yet also kind. Case is reeling from the loss of his brother and Mia is just trying to get some answers. Both are so fiercely dedicated to their causes but it comes with a price. One gets bullets sent their way the other is a target used for bribery but neither have ever or will ever back down. And this is what brings them back into each others orbit after their huge falling out.
I loved Case- his full out alpha-male- don't mess with me or my family because I will take you down and out attitude. And Mia's tendency to do before thinking it through but also her willingness to sacrifice herself and her own happiness to protect others really endeared her to me. The intensity and danger build and build but so does the chemistry and connection between Case and Mia as they join forces to take down a common threat. It is quite the whirlwind of secrets and sex. Both not seeming to remember that secrecy is what tore them apart the first time. When Case realizes he screwed up, it is his words- gah his words- and unseen actions that made me swoon. Him giving Mia what she needed and desired proved just how much he "got" her as a person.
I was so wrapped up in Mia and Case's story and how it pulled in everyone else that I found myself reading until the sun came up. And I still wanted more. Lexi Blake- you got me with Dominance Never Dies. I am completely hooked on this cast of characters that are so flawed and fearless at the same time. This one gave me the major feels- everything from anxiety to hope. And that ending- be still my heart- I loved it! What a perfect culmination of everything that happened in this book but also a fantastic set up for the next one in the series.
