Publisher's Summary

A man who lost his future...

Macon Miles knows what it means to make sacrifices for his country. Married to his high school sweetheart, he once had a promising future in the military and everything seemed complete. All that changed when a routine patrol in Afghanistan turned into a nightmare. When the dust settled, Macon had lost his career, his wife, and his leg. Lost and alone, his only comfort comes from his newfound love of cooking. When his estranged brother, Adam, offers him a new home and a chance to work at a friend's restaurant in Dallas, it's an offer he can't refuse.

A woman searching for the past...

Allyson Jones made her foster mother a deathbed promise. She would find out what really happened to Ronnie in Afghanistan. Ally doesn't believe the army's reports about her foster brother's death, and she knows only one man can tell her what really happened - Macon Miles. Following him to Dallas, she gets a job working alongside him at Top, Sean Taggart's decadent new restaurant. She is sure Macon is hiding something about Ronnie's death, and she'll do whatever it takes to unravel the mystery.

When circumstances force Macon and Ally together, their chemistry is hotter than any dish at Top. But when Ally's deception is exposed and the truth about Ronnie's death is revealed, will they be able to reclaim the love they've lost?

A favorite series!

I enjoyed reading this book but even more listening to it. The narration was excellent. This series is a favorite of mine and I've been pleased to add the audio versions as they've become available. I'm totally captivated by all of the characters in the series.

A Tear Jerker!

Thanks for writing about what really happens to many of our soldiers, and all the difference a friend can make.

Narrator threw me off

I mean no offense to the narrator but after going from Ryan to this guy it kinda wrecked the story for me he wasn’t terrible but he wasn’t super great.

Dense, intense, and satisfying

The author has explored a number of very interesting personalities in this volume, showing that she has a very clear understanding of human motivations and how multiple types of abandonment, the withdrawal of love, betrayal, and PTSD can effect and warp those motivations. This novel has been very skillfully written, and is well worth you time and attention.

Best intro into the D/S scene

Love how Lexi handles the complexities of survivor's guilt and Allison's introduction into the D/S world. Very happy for this continued series into the minor characters found within Tagget & McKay's family associates.

Love the story the narrator's OK

I really like the series. Not a big fan of this narrator. Sebastian and York does a better job of narrating. He does a couple the other books in the series. They are fantastic.

loved it

I loved this book when I saw that there was a book out with Adams brother I couldn't wait to hear it. I loved that a lot of the original characters were in this book and lived that Ian was there to bring a bit of humor to this story. don't know how many times I had to apologize for laughing out of the blue at work were I get to listen to my audible books on my headphones.
macon,s character was so inspiring with all that he went through and over came, and how ally was strong enough to open herself up and submit. the only thing that I would change about this story is the narrator not that he was bad but I prefer Mr Ryan west.

Amazing narration...

All I have to say is: "Oh wow, Lance Greenfield!!!" He delivered the perfect emotion in those scenes that demanded it. I am in awe over his performance.

AWESOME!!!

I really enjoyed Luscious: Masters and Mercenaries: Topped, Book 1.

Lexi Blake has the real talent of putting romance, fire and sex + add some action into the mix of her storylines and you're intrigued.

Topped: Book 1, added something else to the mix. The two main characters have secrets that may hurt them both. Will their relationship hold up if the secrets get out?

I still have so many more of Lexi Blake books to listen to before I can say I've caught up to present day. But, so far the books I have listened to by Lexi, have not been a disappointment.

Lance Greenfield is the narrator in "Luscious" and he did a very fine job at it. So, hats off to you Lexi and Lance, I'm on my way to listening to: "Just One Taste," (Masters and Mercenaries: Topped Book 2.)
