4 **crazy shenanigans** STARS

“You’ve got issues. You see something shiny and you take off after it. I need you to understand that I might not be the shiniest thing you ever chased after, but I’m the thing that caught you and I’m going to keep you. Even if it means tying you up.”

Finally another M&M book. Those who follow my reviews might know my slightly problematic obsession with these delicious Doms and Ian Taggart in particular. This time around we get the story of Case Taggart, on
Dominance Never Dies picks up where the last book left us. Basically flailing about trying to figure out what was going to happen between Mia and Case. The story opens up with Mia breaking into Case's place to let him know that she has new intel on the whereabouts of his brother. Case still isn't over the fact that Mia lied to him, and he isn't ready to forgive her. But when it comes to his brother he'll do anything to bring him home, even getting in bed with the enemy.

Mia is still heartbroken
3.5* anything for you STARS!!

I'm surprised when Lexi Blake released this book very close to the last. Usually it takes 6 months or up to 2 full length volumes/year. But it didn't matter! I want this as soon as possible because we all itchy for the Taggart twins and wondering with what the hell happened with Theo.

A bit recap, Case Taggart met Mia Lawless Denvers in Kai's book and everything's backfired, he doubt her. Even Case admits that he's interested with Mia, he stayed far away from her espe

I LOVE the Masters and Mercenaries Series. I've read every single one of them including the novellas and the Topped Series.
Lexi Blake is one of my favorite authors.
But.... this installment was a huge disappointment imo.
What happened to the BDSM? Where was my Alpha male?
Dominance never dies...? It never existed in this book.
Hopefully, Theo and Erin's story will have more of the elements I've come to expect in Lexi Blake novels.

Blacky *Romance Addict*
Good suspense, but it was a bit too too toooo sweet at times.
Aly is so frigging bored

Main characters:
Mia Lawless Danvers
Case Taggart

What I Liked:
I love the world Ms. Blake has created and I love returning to it. Mia and Case’s story is fraught with drama and misunderstandings. This is both a good and bad thing, yes, at the same time. The bad thing is that I’ve kind of got enough of characters not communicating, seriously not that hard. The good thing: you just need some drama from time to time and Ms Blake knows how to de

I know I should start from the beginning lol but this is Mia's book and I want to read it
I think my expectations for this book were just too high. Although initially after reading this I was going to give it 3 Stars but after reading my review I’ve decided to go with 4 Stars instead.

I first met Case and Mia in Riley’s book and I loved them. I added their book to my list but decided to start with the series right from the beginning. This is where my OCD comes through.

I then met Mia Danvers in Kai & Kori’s book. I like Mia she is overprotective of her friends and genuinely a nice per

This series just keeps getting better…

This is the eleventh—eleventh—book in this series, and by now I figured the premise was going to wear itself out. The characters were going to be predictable, their stories just blurring together in sameness. Happily, that did not happen! This outing was, once again, jam-packed with everything I’ve come to love about these books—including emotion and drama to spare—as Case Taggart and Mia Danvers worked their way into the “my new favorite couple” of the seri

Been waiting for this story for a while. So happy it came out and I sucked it down like a drug addict frenetic for my next high. When do they finally find Theo, Case's twin? There have been hints and hints in the past couple of books. But this book isn't about Theo exactly. It's about Case and his desperate need to find his brother that he will use anyone at his disposal.

I liked this one. Forget the BDSM in this story because it's kind of a tongue in cheek element for me now. The story is really

I was a bit disapointed by this one. But can't wait for Theo and Erin's book.
OMG! I'm nothing but a HUGE pile of feels right now! The ending....THE ENDING! My heart is broken! I don't know what I would do without this series in my life...without these characters is my life! I love them all to death! I can ALWAYS count on Lexi Blake's sexy and suspenseful stories to leave me breathless, speechless, and in a euphoric daze. Sensual and passionate love scenes mixed with toe-curling drama and suspense, made DOMINANCE NEVER DIES a favorite of the series for me. There isn't a p ...more

Actually 3.5 stars

Within her Masters and Mercenaries series Lexi Blake has written some novels I adore (the entire Topped series), and some that I can't stand (like the first two books). This one is somewhere in the middle. At this point in the series the storytelling is so dense with plot and complications that it can take work to slog through it. There are definite good parts to the story, but there are so many characters and so much going on that the book feels overstuffed. It has to serve as
Lynn Thinking out loud
Mia had me laughing so hard I had tears coming out of my eyes with her inner dialogue.

Case, oh boy, Case was a handful let me tell you that. He is definitely a hardheaded Taggert.

Ian is still funny as hell. He's become more unreserved with each book.

Laugh, cry, laugh, cry. I don't know  which way is up and which way is down anymore. Dominance never Dies had my emotions on one hell of an emotional rollercoaster.

There is not a single one of these books that I haven't loved. These are the books

Gah, I missed reading this series. So happy I’ve started it back up again!

Loved Case & Mia’s story - all the good stuff we’ve come to love from this series is included, and given Case is a Taggart, you just know there’s going to be extra scoops of snark & alpha-stupidity.

OMG! I love the latest installment of the Masters and Mercenaries series. I couldn't put it down.

Case and Mia are on the hunt for Theo, Case's missing twin. Their relationship started out rough and now they have chance to start over. Mia knows she made a mistake but has spent months trying to find any clue on the person who is believed to have killed Theo but instead finds Theo. Mia and Case goes to the last location he is but in the process foil an attempted kidnapping on Mia. Things go from b

This is the 11th book in the Masters and Mercenaries series. The books should be read in the order that Lexi Blake suggests on her website If you don't read them in order the author does a good job in this book to get the reader up to date on what is happening.

What an amazing story. So much was told in this book. It had me at the edge of my seat the whole time. This story is about Case and Mia but you get a feel for so many other characters. If you don't read the stories in order

Red hot chemistry

Case and Mia has chemistry that’s sizzling and they also have temper, it’s a bumpy journey to a happy ever after so how will they get there?
This series can be read as standalone books but for full enjoyment I recommend reading them in order.
I love that the characters from previous books is so heavily present in this book, in no way does it take away the focus on the main characters.
Good storyline that progresses nicely to a good ending
No unnecessary descriptions of surrounding

3.75 stars. This is Case and Mia's story. Case and Mia have been circling each other for awhile, since Mia was trying to find her friend's murderer. They have both been attracted and had feelings for each other, but never really acted on them because they were both lying to each other to get information when they met. Case didn't know if he could trust Mia and he thought she was a spoiled rich girl. Mia still really liked Case, but couldn't get him to consider dating her. She finally found a way ...more

5 Star Review of Dominance Never Dies (Masters and Mercenaries #11) by Lexi Blake

Dominance Never Dies is book 11 in Lexi Blake’s Masters & Mercenaries series and is one of my all-time favourite series. If you like sexy bad ass alpha males, some BDSM, smoking hot sex and characters that will melt your heart and your panties, then look no further.

Nobody does sexy suspense books like Lexi Blake. This book was phenomenal. I absolutely loved it from the first to the last page. There was so much hap

Another awesome read courtesy of Lexi Blake with DOMINANCE NEVER DIES!

When reporter Mia Lawless Danvers infiltrated the BDSM club Sanctum in order to try and catch a serial killer, she didn't expect Doms there to be so…AWESOME. Especially Case Taggart. After the fallout of honesty, Case wants nothing to do with the pretty little rich girl, and Mia is just about to give up on him.

When she has a lead on the whereabouts of his possibly still alive twin brother Theo, the two will have to work toge
Dominance Never Dies picks up where the last book left us in that Mia is still heartbroken that Case won’t forgive and we are wondering what will happen with these two. Mia comes to Case with information about his brother and even though Case is still angry and hurt with Mia he will do whatever he has to in order to bring his brother home. So now Mia and Cash are working together and let me tell you their form of foreplay is HOT! They fight like you wouldn’t believe and I wondered just how much ...more

Fast and Furious, just finished, review subject to change.

This one seemed to go by fairly quickly and while I literally just finished I feel like it isn't sticking with me emotionally. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it, I did. I like Case and Mia is a great addition to this family of strong independent women. She was never the damsel in distress something that we have gotten away from after the first few books and I really enjoy having another heroine who can and will take care of herself, but

I gave this book 4.5 stars!

This is the first book I have read in this series and I Floved it. Even though I haven't read the others I could easily keep up with the secondary characters and who was who and follow the story line that has been in place in previous books.

Mia is a reporter that is looking for the killer of her college roommate. She has went undercover at a sex club to try to bring the killer out. What she wasn't expe
4.5 stars!!!!!

Theo's situation pretty much breaks my heart but Case may be a dumbass but at least he learns when to pull it out his ass. I loved his and Mia's story especially since so much in the continuing plot line with the Collective and Hope McDaniels was ever present. This book had a lot less hot and steamy scenes and focused more on the plot of this story and the whole series.
This book was also one giant prologue for Mia's brothers spin off series, Lawless and Case and Mia will be right

Although this story is about Case Taggart and Mia, it seems the story's central focus is about saving Theo (and others). The rock solid Taggart team, unbeatable in early stories, is no longer able get the upper hand in every situation. Because this story was high in angst and action it wasn't really emotionally soothing or romantic as previous stories. Even Ian's bigger than life personality was toned back to the point that he seemed to blend in with the crowd. And I do mean the crowd -there wer ...more

I swear after 11 plus books in this series, they just somehow keep getting better and this is one of those authors who in my opinion can do no wrong....Without a doubt one of my top 5 Favorite Authors ever!!!!

I loved Case and Mia's story however I have to admit relishing the pieces with Theo in it. I want that book so bad, that I will wish away the next few months till October.....Need Theo and Erins book...:(

I hope this series never ends and there are more Masters whose stories need to be told,

Holy buckets Lexi!!! I never get tired of this series. Case and Mia are intense. Not only with their feelings and the sex but with finding Theo. The ordeal the whole team goes through to get one of their own back is outstanding. I was on the edge of my seat the whole book. Why Hollywood keeps making remake movies when there are books like this is a mystery.
Love this series. Never been a bad book in it. This is no exception. Case & Mia left on very bad terms in the last book. Both were complete asses in different parts of the book and deserved slaps upside the head, but all is well that ends well and boy did this book end well!!! Can't wait for the next one! ...more

It was the perfect blend of a love story, suspense and set up Theo's story.
I laughed and cruiserweight the Taggarts and wouldn't have changed a word.
