descriptionI enjoyed this one more than I thought I would but not as much as I hoped I would. You can pretty much chalk that up to me being over the whole uber manwhore thing lately. I knew going in that that was exactly what Javi was, but I had hoped we would not get a front row seat for his actions. But we do. And his manwhore past is in our face constantly throughout the book (the last throwaway comment at the end of the book about the condoms and lube in the broom closet was nasty and totally unnecessa

If she wasn’t smart enough to get away from him, he would catch her and hold her and never let her go.

I adore, simply adore all thing Lexi Blake. Where her Masters and Mercenaries series is my all time favorite, her Topped series is my fix between the M&M releases. They never fail to bring me a little taste of my favorite world with a good dose of Big Tag and Chef Tag while introducing a slew of new and addicting characters.

I've been curious about Javier's book for some time. As the
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

There is a reason Lexi Blake's books are a must-buy for me-they are entertaining, satisfying and emotionally supportive.

This powerful entry into the TOP series explores the relationship between hostess Juliana and sous chef Javier. Several things make their connection unlikely: Javier's brother and his own reputation as a himbo, and most importantly, Juliana's recovery from the loss of her hand while in the Navy.

In addition to strong, likable characters, an intriguing plot and steamy sex scenes,

I have to start saying something that has stuck in my head and I found it ridiculous. Javier says to Julie, "All of that was before I met you" referring to all the women he had slept with in the past which makes me laugh because I recall him saying that he was on a one-night stand spree a month or so ago. And Julie saw most of those women. I liked how Javier tried for most of the book to win over Juliet and make her see how good they were together, but I understand why she wasn't expecting anyth ...more

“When did Javier get all caveman about a woman?”

“When he met the right one,” Chef said with a smile.

I had a moment of insanity where I requested this book and an instant later I forgot about it. I kid you not.

Of all the things I’ve lost I miss my mind the most. So true peeps.

I then spoke to a friend to ask if she was going to request it. She said yes and I replied that I would wait until she’d read it and buy it instead. Colour me surprised when I checked my Kindle Saturday morning a

First and foremost, you can read this book as a standalone. But I do highly urge you to read the other books in this series because they are just too damn good to pass up. I promise after read this book alone, you will find yourself one-clicking her other books.

At Your Service is Javier’s book. I was extremely curious to see how Javier’s story would pan out – he’s the playboy chef at Top and doesn’t apologize ever for his actions. And we get to see those actions up close and personal in this boo

When I first started Master and Mercenaries, I never knew I would get to read spin offs and even all these books with so many characters I have grown to love. Maybe its because this world is just perfect. Maybe its because Masters and Mercenaries is just a drool worthy, sensual and fantastic package that makes me giddy and fall in love with. I adore Lexi Blake and her writing. She has definitely created a world that I am so addicted to. At your Service is another amazing book in the Masters and ...more

I started this book on Veteran’s Day and honestly I could not have chosen a better romance (or series) for that day. The majority of Ms. Blake’s characters in the Top series served in the military and bear the emotional and physical scars of their sacrifices, and Jules and Javier are another fabulous couple of characters. I loved that there are no shortcuts when it comes to the way the romance unfolds, and because this is Ms. Blake, there’s some kinky fun to be had. Ms. Blake’s M&T ‘verse is ric

Mini Review: Kinda okay because I don't have high hope for Topped series. Still enjoyable though. There's up and down between MCs. Light BDSM. Simple lovey dovey with a bit suspense in the end.
Julie (Jewlsbookblog)
Even though he was a manwhore, I liked Javi. Aside from his playboy status, Javi was funny and quick-witted. He worked hard, played hard, and was loyal to family and friends. Jules was smart, sarcastic, and always helpful, but she was so freaking prideful and stubborn! Normally that wouldn’t bother me, because I like strong heroines, but seeing how hard Javi was actually working to prove himself to her while also trying to get her to admit how much she was hiding from herself almost became an od ...more

I will be honest and admit that this is one of my all time favourite series and truth be told when I get a chance to review a Lexi Blake book I will always jump at the opportunity.

This series is just fun. Each one of them has been great and while they are a series, each one has managed to feel like a totally different story in the same world.

Juliana and Javier work together and she is trying to put her life back together after an injury. I love that she is not "perfect" and I love that she is not necessarily the stereotypical heroine of a romance story. Sometimes stories and characters appeal to me for different reasons, an

Loved this story! Loved it. If you’re a fan of these Topped / MM novellas, this one is not only a kick-ass story (Juliana is the shiz) but the number of threads woven in here that lead us to the (now released) Lexi Blake Collection, are just perfection.
Sidebar: I could not be more in love with Sean Taggart than I already am, but this book reminded me exactly why I fell in the first place.
I enjoyed this story, but I thought the secondary was superfluous. I thought the issues between the MCs was enough without the brother's story being added. It was just extra drama. Still it worked and I enjoyed Sebastian York's narration - even though it is still weird not hearing Ryan West in these stories.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

If you have never read any of this series before, then I do recommend them all to you - and your experience of this book would be richer for knowing the rationale, and understanding behind what many of the gang say to both Javier and Jules in this story. But it is also an excellent read in its own right. And, having enjoyed it, you will find that you have a wonderful collection of books to add to your reading list.

Javier Leones doesn't understand monogamy. He's a known playboy, both at Top restaurant (where he's a chef) and at club Sanctum (where he's a Dom), so his co-worker and neighbor Juliana O'Neil could be forgiven for thinking all he wants from her is a one night stand. Military veteran Juliana had once hoped to be a chef, but after the traumatic amputation of her dominant hand, she thinks both her professional and personal dreams are out of reach. Can Javier convince Juliana that he wants more fro ...more

OMG Javier finally found her and what an awesome chick Jules is I just love her, these two are just perfect for each other.
I really liked the way Javier just knew Jules was different and there would be no going back for him and Jules she has been through so much and survived and now she is thriving.

This story was a great addition to the family.

At face value, Javier Leones and Juliana O’Neil couldn’t be more different in almost every aspect of their lives but one – their passion for cooking, but even that similarity comes with its own road blocks because while Javier is the sous chef at Top, Jules is only a hostess because her faith in her abilities as a chef deteriorated when she lost her dominant hand in combat saving the lives of five people but seemingly losing herself in the process.

I throughly enjoyed the story of Javier and Juliana. I have been quite anxious to get my hands on Javier's story, I mean how was Lexi Blake going to redeem Javier the 'manwhore'? I can admit to some serious worry, but I should have never feared a moment, Ms. Blake pulls of his redemption flawlessly and she wrote the only heroine that could have done it, Juliana.

What happens when two people who feel that they don't deserve love come together? I loved the pull and push between these two. I can ho

Sweet, talented, manwhore Javier has been on the periphery of the McKay Taggart clan for awhile now. He's Sean Taggart's right hand chef at Top and a new Master at Sanctum. But, recent events have him wanting to become a one-woman man. Only problem is, you spend so long bouncing from one casual fling to the next, and it's hard to find anyone to take you seriously.

And then there's Juliana. Once upon a time she had it all, and then she joined the military and lo

*Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my rating or the content of my review in any way.

The newest story in the world of the Masters and Mercenaries, and the spin-off series, Top, is just as good as expected, if not more.

Juliana is a really brave, awesome heroine. I love how she helps Javier, even though she had nothing to gain from it. There's a great thing that Blake does
At Your Service is a wonderful addition to the Masters and Mercenaries: Topped family. Juliana and Javier are simply marvelous. Javier is the resident man-whore at the restaurant but he is feeling the need to settle down and build a relationship with the right woman. Enter Juliana. She is damaged and unsure of her place in the world after returning from fighting overseas for her country. Juliana has caught Javier’s eye before but when Juliana saves him from a date gone bad and a very sensitive s ...more
