If I had known before I requested the ARC that the heroine was going to be a (view spoiler), I wouldn't have bothered with it.

I got a taste for Lexi Blake's writing with For His Eyes Only and couldn't pass up the opportunity to read from her again. ARRANGED was an absolute pleasure to devour. It's about the arranged marriage between Loa Mali's King Kash and his one-time sweetheart, Day. For the past five years Kash has been living the life of an infamous playboy. Paparazzi, threesomes, hookers, and sex tapes were his new norm. Until his sovereignty was threatened and he was forced to wed the straight-laced Day. He soon ...more

3* i got you STARS!

As much as I want to love this, I just can't. Kash Kamdar is one of the most anticipated male in the M&M series. He's well-known as a playboy king from Loa Mali from Ian's book (Love & Let Die). At first, I didn't really care about him but lately he was mentioned many times until his own book. I was so happy with the premise of Kash's story but in the end, it's far from what I've imagined.

Ever since Kash was first loosely introduced back in Love and Let Die, I've been curious. He never had a solid presence in the M&M series, but when I saw that he'll be getting his own book, I was intrigued. The playboy king in an arranged marriage? Sign me up for that!

Hot, sexy, and steamy!!!! What more can a reader ask for when you want a quick erotic romantic story? Right!! Lexi Blake turns up the heat as she delivers a fast paced and emotional novella in the Arranged. She has readers like me devouring this book so fast because the heroine stole the spotlight in my opinion.

Arranged made for an interesting read.

15 years ago Kash nearly fell in love but the spare then became the heir and is life changed. Fate intervened well actually it was his father but she tried to make it better by arranging a marriage between Dayita and Kash.

Kash, king of his country has been ignoring his responsibilities as king but that is all about to change.

I wasn’t really interested in Kash when I met him in previous books. Yes, he is a manwhore not that it bothered me. I just felt that

This was a really good book. This was book 13.5 in the "Masters and Mercenaries" series. We met the King of Loa Mali Kashmir "Kash" Kamdar a few books back he is the playboy king a manwhore. When his mother Queen Yasmine decides that its time for him to slow down and get married she pick a bride for him Dayita "Day" Samar. Day and Kash went to school together and they spent a lot of time together and on the day that he found out that his father and brother died she kissed him 15 years later ...more

So let me start off by saying I am one of the few who have not read all the books in this series. I actually started reading late in the series (Book #10 was my first) and fell in love with these characters and this whole world. With that being said, if you want to dip your toes into Lexi's Masters and Mercenaries series to see what you are missing out on, this is the perfect book to do so. Yes, there are characters from the series mentioned; however, they do not play an integral part
Looking for a quick and sexy escape from reality? Look no further, because Lexi Blake has the novella for you. ARRANGED is a Masters & Mercenaries novella that had me hooked from the very beginning. I didn't know what to expect, and yet, I wasn't surprised at all with how much I LOVED Kash and Dayita's complicated love story. It's emotional. It's rich. It's complex, despite the page length, and I was a complete goner from the very start.

I always get excited when I know that a new Lexi Blake book is being released, I feel like a kid at a toy store, for me that is the excitement I get when it comes to books. Arranged is the newest addition to the Masters and Mercenaries series and let me just say that this may be a novella but it does not lack in any of the ways we love this series.

Every time Kash Kamdar was mentioned in previous books, it was mostly about his notoriety as a playboy and man-whore, so I was not really expecting much going into this. Just some rubbernecking, like at an accident scene and wondering what kind of woman would be foolish enough to commit herself to this man. It was nothing like I expected, sort of a departure from the rest of the series and I was pleasantly surprised. However, like the rest, ARRANGED is sexy with a side helping of emotion that wi ...more

Arranged by Lexi Blake is part of her Masters and Mercenaries series. I have only read one of book in this series but I didn't feel as though I was missing anything. I believe each book can be considered a standalone with different couples featured in each book.

Being that this book is a short novella, I don't want to give to much away. The book description is an excellent overview of this story. I think my main issue with this story was with Kash himself. I personally found him to be a difficult

This series is one of my all-time favourites , I loved this book from start to finish. I didn’t want to put it down and was so annoyed when real life conspired to stop me from reading it in one session.

I have always loved the characters that Ms. Blake creates, the way she develops and layers them and her story lines are always amazing,. Kash Kamdar, King of Loa Mali is an intriguing character and one I have been interested in si

Now I went into this book blind, as its Lexi Blake and this is in the top 3 of my favorite series I knew I would want to read it.....

So color me surprised when Kash turns out to be the submissive and Dayita the Domme.....Now I just recently refused to read a book by another one of my fave authors because of just this......and not reading one of KA's book was HARD!!

But holy hell Batman I should have known Lexi Blake would pull this off. The story did not just focus on that aspect,

I loved the way this story started off with a glimpse of Kashmir and Dayita at University just about to take their friendship to another level but Kashmir received some news and needed to return home immediately. Now fast forward fifteen years and Kash is not only King of Loa Mali but he is a MAJOR Playboy whose time has come to settle down, and the Queen Mother has picked the perfect bride for her son to marry in this arranged marriage.

Lexi Blake is a favorite of mine, and I love the whole 1001 Dark Nights series. Such a fun idea, to tell numerous compelling and shorter stories to take up an evening.

I really enjoyed this one. the characters were interesting, and I loved that you got to meet Kash as a much younger man, and on a very pivotal day in his life, before the real story began. Day, well, you like her, you like who she is, and you like that she is not afraid to

Kash Kamdar is the king of Loa Mali, used to enjoying life and all it has to give…until his mother forces an arranged marriage on him. His betrothed is nothing like the party girls he's used to, but Dayita Samar has always been the one woman who's been able to get under his skin. Dayita knew years ago that Kash would need a firm hand and strict direction, and her Domme tendencies screamed in happiness. Many years away from each other convinced her

Kash and his appearances in the MM world of MT have kept me entertained for a while, so I was thrilled to discover that this novella treat was his story, even though I had doubts about how this rougish manwhore king would ever slow his roll(ing in the hay).

I loved Dayita, loved their story and now having read and held on through all the twists, turns and surprising outcomes, it couldn’t have been more perfectly them.

Story was TOO slow and Kash was so fucking irritating with his, "I am King, I have to be in control." There wasn't a lot of sex scenes either and part of the reason why I read BDSM books is because of the scenes and sexy times. This book did NOT satify my craving with enough sexy times.
Just my opinion.

“She could be his secret. She would never have to know how weak he was, how dark his wants were. He could pretend to indulge her and steal something for himself.”

“If this was what love felt like, Kash didn’t want it. This was a terrible ache in his gut, a pendulum swinging between anger and insane grief.”

Told from dual points of view, Arranged follows the story of Kash and Day. Kash never wanted to be king, but fate had other plans in mind for him. Now as ruler of Loa Mali, Kash is living the li

Holy Hell do I have a new favorite Mistress/heroine/Professor Queen to add to my list of outstanding female characters. Dayita Samar is one heck of a woman and the complexity of her character is due to the control and dominance she yields as well as her ability to know her worth and demand an equal place in the eyes of men who try to control her…who try to bring her to her knees in a servile role – one that she adamantly refuses to play no matter the rank or status of those who look to demean he ...more

Not having read the other books in the Masters and Mercenaries series, I wasn't familiar with the previous books, but I have read a couple books by Lexi Blake and she didn't disappoint at all. From the eye catching to the intriguing synopsis, Arranged delivers a story filled with steamy scenes and a second chance at love that will leave you wanting for more.

Arranged was adorable! Loved this book from start to finish. Honestly, I’ve been craving a good BDSM story for some time and haven’t been able to get around to looking for one. Luckily for me Arranged just fell in my lap and I couldn’t be happier.

Kash Kamdar wanted a normal life learning new things and trying to provide for his country with science. That all changed when his older brother and father died and he is forced to be the king of Loa Mali, a role he wasn’t trained of prepared for. While

Lexi Blake is one of my go to authors in the BDSM genre. She has a unique perceptive of the lifestyle that simply dazzles me. She adds so much colour and artistry that just makes the books so special and enjoyable to read. Her books are so profound because she combines sexiness with high paced action that makes you crave more. I am simply spellbound by her books every time.

I love Lexi Blake's writing. She has a great sense of humor and it really shows in her stories, even when the story is at a somber moment.

I enjoyed the story of Kashmir and Dayita. This story isn't as detailed in the sex scenes, which are few and far between, as the other Masters and Mercenaries books. However, it was still a great and enjoyable read.

Kash and Day have quite a bit to overcome to make their life work. With friends on the out, blac

Kash Kamdar, the king of the fictitious nation of Loa Mali has made appearance in previous books in the Masters and Mercenaries series, but now he gets his own book, and it's definitely a departure for Lexi Blake, since the king is a submissive and his new bride in the Domme in their relationship. The look into Kash's psyche is a great psychological exploration of a man who feels he should be in control at all times, even if that's not what his heart wants.

I love this series

This is one of my favorite series and Arranged was a great addition to the series.
Kash and Day had a lot to over come but both realized what was important . Although to took Kash a bit to set aside his preconceived ideas of who he should be , this pair fought for what each other needed.

Kash and Day...

When an arranged marriage really is just destiny, these two gorgeously sweet people were truly meant to be, they just had to find their way through the obstacles back to each other, it may have been a long road but sometimes the long road works better in the long it made them both stronger and now Kash and Day can rule their country, love each other and be true to themselves I just love that.
