Hello Readers!!

Well I have a question.

Who do you think will the messy,sweet and lovable heroine choose??

Will she go for the meathead alpha male.....

....or will she choose the utterly reasonable,slightly metro hunk???

Oh and this meathead alpha male happens to be a Dom who likes to tie her up and the reasonable slightly metro hunk is not very far behind.

Well the meathead alpha male is Jake and the resonable metro hunk is Adam.

Probably my favorite out of the whole series so far!

RE-READ April 2017 -- Still one of my all times favorites from this series!


Blacky *Romance Addict*

This book is epic!!! I don't remember the last time I laughed so much while reading an erotica, especially a BDSM one :D
The angle with the main woman writing erotica, loved it ahahaha and the dudes making fun of "pussy Doms" from those books was hilarious!
The main guys were funny in the previous book and they were funny here too, though they did have some Uber dense moments but whatever. I enjoyed this book so much, I don't really care XD.

It started great, and I was a little afraid it wouldn't work for me, as I didn't like book 1 that much.
Unfortunately, the push and pull between the main 3 characters quickly came to a closed circle, redundant, and I couldn't understand the heroine's reluctance to accept what she had wished for so long when it was finally right at her door...
I liked that both Jake and Adam, even when they were fighting like children, but didn't understand how 2 men knowing each other for so long,

Serena Brooks is a author who knows that she has a dangerous stalker. She write erotic romance and is proud of what she writes, she may not be on a top best seller lists but she has a good following. However when she goes to the police for help they give her the run around and don't even take her seriously, they believe she is doing it herself for publicity.

The Men With the Golden Cuffs was the second book in the Masters and Mercenaries series by Lexie Blake.

I fell in love with Adam Miles and Jacob (Jake) Dean in book one, The Dom Who Loved Me. They were hard and soft opposites who were a team in every way, including both being Doms in D/s ménage relationships. They didn’t have a permanent sub but were always looking for the perfect woman. They were former Special Forces who were working for McKay-Taggart Security Firm.

3.5 stars erotic romantic suspense

Well, I really wanted to like this book. This series has just about everything that appeals to me – it’s romantic suspense, erotic fiction, BDSM romance, James Bond themed titles, gorgeous covers (I am a cover slut after all), uber-alpha badass arrogant males who also happen to be hot doms and sweet submissive heroines who have only ever read BDSM and never actually indulged in the lifestyle but really want to give it a try. This book is better than the first on

This time we have not one but two heroes set out to protect a little woman from her stalker. She writes BDSM so this would appear to be a romance made in heaven. Unfortunately, the boys get stupid and “betray” her and lots of pouting ensues from everyone. Adam and Jake were still entertaining but not nearly as much as in the last book as they are now the ones messing up their own romance with Sere

I wasn’t going to write a review for this book but I have time and well I want to post the whole series at some point on the blog & FB.

The ones we love the most we are the cruellest to.

This book is better than the first one in the series but it still couldn’t get over the 3 star mark I’m sad to say.

Jake and Adam are looking for the one and in The Dom who loved me they try to encroach on Sean’s woman well actually only Adam tries to, Jake tries to talk some sense into him but that doesn’t work
2.5 Stars
Apologies to my friends who LOVE this series, but I cannot take the arrogance of the Heroes and the way the heroine's expressed wishes are often disregarded as if irrelevant (because the alpha male automatically assumes he is right). The villains were not real credible in my opinion, and they lacked any depth that would make them more interesting. This is the last one of this series for me.

Hi Maru, today I wanna interview you, to mix things up a bit :D What did you like most about Lexi Blake's "The Men with the Golden Cuffs?"
Hi Aly! I'm so excited to do the review like this :). What I liked the most was how relationship between the guys and Serena worked. When I read menage books I always think they won't work, but how Blake wrote the story it wouldn't work any other way.

What did you dislike?
The drama lama!

Would you change anything about the book?

Characters, plot, sex - nothing interested me. I stopped reading after 50%. Some books just don’t fit me, and this is one of them.

A stalker is threatening Serena and damaging her property. Adam and Jake are hired to investigate and to be her bodyguards. They like to share their women, and they want her. Serena wants them as well. She also wants to experiment with BDSM so they take her to a BDSM club. There are some lengthy sex scenes. By the 50% point, I just wasn’t interested. So I stopped read

I was hesitant to read this. Books featuring heroines that are romance authors sometimes comes across as author fantasy and that makes me uncomfortable. However, I love the Nights in Bliss series written under Lexi Blake’s other pen name, Sophie Oak, so I decided to give it a try.

Serena Brooks, pen name Amber Rose, is a best selling erotic romance author who is known for her ménage and BDSM titles. She has a stalker that doesn’t approve of the books she writes and her agent sends her to McKay-Ta

I’m not sure why I have been slacking on this series, I remember buying this ebook as soon as it came out! I have a thing for a good romantic suspense and Lexi Blake mixes that with some pretty hot sex! What could be better? Nevertheless, here I am, a million books behind this series and getting excited all over again to go back in.

THE MEN WITH THE GOLDEN CUFFS as you would expect by the name is a permanent menage story. In this case this works well because Adam and Jacob are alread

I have never read any book by Lexi Blake before. It was time to put an end to this -_-

My thoughts before reading:
I was so interested in the idea of having 2 male leads. I have always read Menage as a thing some couples enjoy doing during their relationship. But I wanted to see how any 3-way relationship works, how they would connect.

Unfortunately after reading it I was disappointed not about the book really, but more about how I didn't connect with the three main characters. Mostly because the

Recommends it for: Fans of erotic romance with great plots and writing
This book was fantastic! I loved the plot, I loved the suspense, the characters, and the writing. I could not put it down. It was funny and snarky, and I had to crack up to all the real life references to the author. I loved that. I was begging after reading the The Dom Who Loved Me (literally) for Adam and Jacob's story to be next, so I was immensely excited when it came out a couple of weeks ago.

This story did not disappoint. I did think those stupid boys screwed up a little too easily when c

I LOVED this book, and I loved the bond between Adam and Jake. They weren’t lovers, but they knew each other on a soul-deep level. Their histories were sad, but I was happy they were able to overcome them. Serena was cute and quirky. Like Adam and Jake, she also had some insecurities she needed to work through. I thought the connection and sex between the three had less steam, but more emotion. I also thought the feel of Adam and Jake’s story was lighter than Sean’s.

I enjoyed the little glimpse
I would give this 3.5 stars. I'm not sure I would go with 4 stars. I felt like I wasn't as immersed in this book as I should've been. I don't think I really was well invested with the characters. Oh, I liked dominant Jake, metro-sexual Adam, and writer Serena, but I don't think their characters involved me as much as the first book. I will be interested in reading the next book with Liam. I'm hoping that I like that one better.

Just outstanding. This story has the perfect ingredients all around! I LOVED this BDSM menage story and cannot wait to read Lexi Blake next menage!

Serena Brooks, aka Amber Rose, is being stalked. Though she has kept her real life name and information a secret someone has found out she's an erotica BDSM menage author. Someone who doesn't appreciate her literary works. Her publisher/agent encourages her to hire McKay/Taggart security, a private high end firm that provides bodyguards and investigation team, to do what the police have been unable and unwilling to do.

Love this book so much! I’m a sucker for these three and the plot really keeps me on my toes.

2016: This book was not what I expected. I honestly expected a lot more BDSM sex scenes but it wasn't like that at all. There is a full plot that kept me interested from beginning to the end and this isn't a short book. Yes, there are sex scenes but only like 4 scenes (not too long or too short and I am talking about the scenes). I was so into trying to figure out who Serena's stalker was. I actually gu

I love the consept of two men, one gentle and one grumpy, if only they had been on the same page all the time, but then again it gave the story a little more reality.

The storyline was good and the build up nice and not to slow.

This author makes books that have me hanging on even if I still don't have time. The writing style is easygoing and with enough dialogues so I get hooked right away. As an addition there is not any unnecessary descriptions of surroundings, just right to the point. It amaz

Another sexy and thrilling book by Lexi Blake.

Jacob Dean and Adam Miles are the dream duo. Jacob is the Dom who takes care of the big things, while Adam washes Serena's hair and makes sure she eats regularly. What more can a woman ask for?

Serena is the feisty writer being tormented by a stalker. The stalker hasn't physically harmed her, but his actions have caused her to change her life. When Jacob and Adam are assigned to be Serena's bodyguards, Serena is immediately attracted to the two men.

I normally have a two book rule. I will read two books from an author and if I don't like both of them, I stop buying books by that author. Since I read a one book by Lexi Blake and didn't like it and another that she co-authored that I disliked as well, I wouldn't have purchased this book under normal circumstances. Fact is, I didn't realize the author till I had clicked purchase....and boy am I glad I made that mistake.

This is 3.5 star book. Ms. Blake is a drug for me. I confess to a weakness. Whether she writes under this name or another, if I'm stuck in a rut, her books help me feel better. In this second book in the Masters and Mercenaries series, there is more suspense and I liked it. I wasn't sure exactly the identity of the stalker. I narrowed it down to two people. I'm glad I was partially right. I like being surprised. Ms. Blake did a good job of keeping me riveted.
