Well, i know we're at the beginning of 2015 but i'm pretty sure i won't read a hotter book than this one!
Passion, love, friendship, dedication, super hot sex, you name it this book has it!
I really feel in love this these characters.
Alex is an enigma. He has a dominant personality, but you'll see as you read that this book isn't a typical BDSM book. Yes, there are a lot of elements of sexual domination, but this book also has a softer side than just plain sex.

This is the debut novel by Leigh Stone and for the love of all things sexy, I hope she keeps writing. Her development of relationships and characters is wonderfully done. The writing and plot line are tight and the sex is HOT! What more can you ask from an erotic romance novel? Be warned that there are BDSM scenes but they enhance the storyline and the developing romantic relationship. This is book one of a series and while there is a HFN here, there is the promise of bigger and better things fo ...more

Nice read.
He has a bad thing happening with a relationship in his past and since that moment he can't trust women anymore. He only wants a submissive and no relationship till he meets Melody.
She wants just some fun, because she is in her last year of her studies.
But they begin to feel some more for each other and the troubles begin.
I have to say there are some sexy scenes in the book, but the submission could be more.

I did like them going to Dublin and reading about familiar places there. Brin

The sex scenes were well written, very hot. I kept hoping for a story to develop; however, what I got was sex scene after sex scene connected by a few paragraphs. I love a good romance with lots of sex, but this was too much, even for me.

Lex's Melody has been sitting on my kindle for too long so was very excited to get round to reading it and it did not disappoint!

Alex was instantly drawn to me (because he's a bit of a control freak!) and because of the way he was treated by his first love. His inability to let anyone in and needs to keep people at a distance through his 'control' and need to 'dominate' in every sense of the word ;)

If BDSM bothers you then don't read but if you like it holy cow does Leigh Stone write it well. Meet Alex Matthews a handsome dominate who doesn't date. His only desire is to have submissives until they start to want more then he's done. Meet Melody a college student who is only looking to have a good time. They meet on a dating website and hit it off right away. Alex suggests she submit to him at thier first face to face meeting and she's actually says yes. Soon they both crave the submission a

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review by the author and believe me my review shall be as honest as I can possibly be.

Lex's Melody..... let me start by saying WOW just wow!

Now this is probably one of the hottest books I have read and the fact the it's that hot is enough for a lot of readers BUT this book also has emotional integrity. Believe me when I say it gave me the 'feels' big time. I love connecting emotionally with a book because for me it means I'm invested and that's alway

This book was given to me for an honest review.

I had no clue what this book was going to entail, but it was a good ride. You meet two people who both want a d/s relationship and to not have emotions play out. But that never happens in a case like that. I loved the idea of a dating site bringing the two characters together, as you don't see it very often. Melody is a strong, capable and independent woman outside the bedroom, but inside she likes to be dominated. Leigh has shown you what a relatio

A fantastic erotic novel coming from the very talented and extremely awesome and sinful mind of Leigh Stone a Northern Irish native. In Lex's Melody she manages to not only incorporate the lovely and recognisable landscapes of Belfast city into a super sensual storyline reminiscent of F.S.O.G with Alex our stern architect and Melody our intelligent student as the central characters but Leigh also manages to captivate her audience with her smooth style of writing and brilliant characterisation of ...more

Lex's Melody has been on my to read list for months, in fact since it was released, and I only just got around to starting it just before the novella Melodic Minor was released (which I will be reading soon!)

The only other BDSM book I have read to date is Fifty Shades and in all honesty, I wasn't really all that taken by it so I have been kind of wary of reading others in the same kind of genre.

I have to admit I wasn't so sure on the start of Alex & Melody's relationship, I thought the way

Before I read this book I got to see some teasers for it and it intrigued me. I had a feeling I was going to like this book. No...I fell in love with this book! It is so well written that the story just flows. What starts off as some dirty sex play, turns into a awesome love story that is not mushy. Leigh's writing style sucked me in and I had a hard time getting out! lol

This is a real corker of a debut by this fabulous author. I am telling you now, read this whilst immersed in an ice cold's seriously HOT!! Like finger licking, salivating, tingalinging....HOT!!! However, if you push aside all that hot mamma sauce that are the gloriously graphic sex scenes, there's a real story there that will grip your heart and have you on the edge of your tush.

Hot, sexy read - 3.5 stars! Melody is a student who goes on an internet date and meets architect Alex. They have some immediate chemistry, Mel has her brave on, and tells him she likes her partner to take control. Alex is intrigued - it turns out he's a Dom. As in most of these book, he can't offer her anything other than sex, he doesn't do relationships, blah, blah, blah, and she agrees. And, of course over time they develop stronger feelings for each other, but are reluctant to move past their ...more

**I received this book for an honest review**

We must protect our heart at all costs, right? That is the rational that Alex Matthews has followed for the past several years; but all of that changes when he meets Melody Anderson. Her wit and sardonic attitude is a breath of fresh air; plus her willingness to be his submissive only adds to her charm. The more Alex sees and spends time with Melody, the closer she gets to the heart he has worked so hard to guard. Scared and confused, Alex sees an out

I enjoyed this debut novel by Leigh Stone. Melody and Alex meet online, Melody unaware of Alex's sexual proclivities, that he is in fact a dominant known as Master Lex. It seems the couple were actually made for each other, as Melody is not adverse to being submissive and they begin a passionate and heated arrangement that starts to develop into something more. Master Lex became a dominant for a reason though, events in his past have led him to be mistrustful of women and of forming any emotiona ...more

Holy hotness. Bdsm at its finest. Melody is a student and goes on an Internet date. Meets Alex. Hello Alex. Right away they hit it off. They have insane chemistry. I love a book when your reading it you feel it. This is the kind of book. Not too long into it you find out lex is a dom and melody wants to be his sub. Of course sex is only offered so who would turn that down right? This isn't on

This is the first book i have read by Leigh Stone. I dont read very many BDSM books but i really enjoyed reading Lex's Melody. Alex is a dominant that has suffered badly from a past relationship, so he uses his dominance of submissives to keep them at arms length and by doing so they can never get close to him and break his heart until he meets Melody on an online dating site. She becomes his submissive who is eager to please "Master Lex" in all he commands her to do. As their relationship grows ...more

Melody Anderson is a Computer Science student in the last year of her Masters. She is a warm, gorgeous girl full of sass. Alex Matthews is a handsome architect who mistrusts women and likes to keep control over them by becoming their dominant. He offers Melody the position of submissive but is that enough for either one?

What a mind blowing read! this story will take you on an amazing and beautiful, sex yet understated journey between a dominant and submisse. This is no 50 shades, it's better.

I'm not keen on erotica because there is only so many books you can read before you feel like you're reading everything again but by someone else, but Leigh Stone changed it up and made this an amazing story.

REVIEWED ON BEHALF OF YOUR NEXT HOT READ. Wow, what a read! The sex in this book is just fantastic, I mean, seriously hot!
Master Lex is divine & the man beneath the master is hurt, struggling with feelings Melody brings out in him.
Melody is sassy and brash, a really enjoyable female lead, even with her love of submission she is spunky.
The BDSM was brilliantly written, the story is gripping & the book on the whole is definitely one I would recommend.

Alex was left heartbroken by his college fiancé. Now years later, he is closed off and hides his emotions behind his new lifestyle - being a dominant. He figures that if he is in control, he can't get hurt again. That is until he meets his new submissive,Melody.She is everything he dreamed for in a woman, yet he's afraid of his growing feelings for her. Is Melody the one to open his heart?

this is the first book I have read by Leigh Stone and love reading BDSM so really was looking forward to it. There is so much passion, love, loyalty, friendship and so so much heat you really can't help loving how the characters and scenes are written into this. It isn't all sex scenes there is a gradual love story as it starts as just fun but progresses into a really good story that has sucked you in. Can't wait for next one.....
