There was no other woman he wanted to see, no relationship he wished to get a feel for. There was only her, and it had been that way for a long time.

FINALLY! After what feels like a forever of a wait, we get the story for Jared and Sarah. I've been looking forward to this book ever since we first meet Jared in his older brother's book From Sanctum with Love. Although, in that book, you didn't get quite the full effect of the man in that book. You get Jared John, famous actor. But this

description I was SOOO excited to read this book. I have been waiting for this couple since Kai and Kori's book. It ended up just being OK for me. I wanted more time spent with the couple. I don't think it was necessary to have cameos of practically every character (and kids) from every single book this author has written (slight exaggeration...but not by much). It made the story feel chaotic and took the focus away from Jared and Sarah. I also struggled with the humor. One thing I used to love about this ...more

This was a "Masters and Mercenaries Novella" and a book that I have been waiting to read. For Charlotte Taggart’s birthday, Sanctum becomes a fantasyland of kinky fun and games. Every unattached sub gets a new Dom for the festivities. The twist? The Dom's must conceal their identities until the stroke of midnight at the end of the party. Jared Johns might be one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, but he lost more than a fan when he walked away from Sarah. Jared who is Kai's little brothe ...more
We are really loving this series and we are so loving these characters that grace the pages each and every time in a brand new tale.

We loved this novella as it was fun and flirty and we really enjoyed reading it.You have to love Charlotte and her meddling ways and her mission is to get Sarah and Jared back together and a 3 day Theme party at their club will do just the trick.

Sarah is a submissive who plays occasionally in the club and decides to play one last time before her life is turned upsid

If you have been following my blog for a while, then you know I am a big Lexi Blake fan. Since forever, I have been addicted to her incredible stories. She writes magnificently and she pulls you deep in her web. A web of cleverly crafted romances meant to entice the heart and mesmerize the soul. Whether it is a sensual standalone novella or a suspenseful story with an espionage twist. Lexi Blake definite

Sarah and Jared have a complicated, messy, serial killer in their past kind of history. And, well, that's going to make anything they try to build together just a little...well, messy.

Add in the secret she is keeping, the reason she thinks that her life will never be compatible with his, even if they do get back together, and you have a story where 2 people want the same things but are so afraid of hurting one another that they hold parts of themselves ba
Jared and Sarah’s story was an emotional ride that tugged on my heart! Sarah has a big problem to deal with and I’m so glad she reached out. Jared has matured a lot since his last appearance and I’m happy he had his own story! Ian, of course, was his typical sarcastic self and you have to love a guy who goes to the lengths he does to keep his family happy!

A snarky submissive princess

Sarah Stevens’s life is pretty sweet. By day, she’s a dedicated trauma nurse and by night, a fun-loving club sub. She adores her job, has a group of friends who have her back, and is a member of the hottest club in Dallas. So why does it all feel hollow? Could it be because she fell for her dream man and can’t forgive him for walking away from her? Nope. She’s not going there again. No matter how much she wants to.

Jared is a successful movie star who met Sarah at a time in him life that he felt it would be safer for her if they weren’t together. There was no denying the chemistry and connection between them, but he did what he thought was right at the time and now that she wants nothing to do with him he is determined that she will give him a second chance.

Sarah thrives on her high stress career as a nurse but also needs the release of being a sub so that she can have balance in her life. In Jared she had

Another smokin' hot read in the fabulous McKay-Taggart world! What's hotter than a three day birthday bash with masked Doms and Subs? Not much in this quick, easy read with the BDSM Sanctum club backdrop and the super sexy spies that come with this Masters and Mercenaries series. There are lots of folks to keep up with and super couples to catch up on with this Sanctum bunch. One sub has a surprise coming her way in Hollywood hunk, Jared.

Oh my, I’m so Enchanted by this latest book in the dead sexy Masters and Mercenaries series!

I loved the slow burn between Jared and Sarah. The undeniable attraction—the need, the want, the desire. The love. Yep, love that simmered between them.

They both had things in their pasts that drove their futures—or what they perceived to be their futures. Potentially lonely as hell futures. But Fate—and love—isn’t patient. And Fate definitely had plans for them! And it was wonderful watching it all unfo

LB, what are trying to do to me?! I was an emotional mess reading this story and I didn't think this book would do that to me. Sarah and Jared are series regulars in the M&M universe. Sarah is a sub at Sanctum that also helps out by babysitting the various Sanctum kids but primarily, Ian and Charlotte's kids. Jared is Kai's little brother and he just came out of another M&M story that you don't need to read but it will help so that you know why he's in the emotional state he is in when t ...more

"Sarah loves Jared, but can’t forgive him for walking away. He has grown up a lot and realized she is the one he never should have walked away from. But she won’t talk to him.

I love the Masters and Mercenaries series. The characters are always fun, flirty and Alpha. This book was no different. I enjoyed getting to see the old characters and seeing Ian and Charlotte manipulating things.

Enchanted was a fairytale in the making and one that gives you such an amazing happily ever after. Jared and Sarah’s story is one that I have been waiting for and Lexi Blake did not disappoint. The storyline was something I didn’t see coming but it touched my heart and at times made me emotional. However it wasn’t all about the tears because when Big Tag is involved you know there is going to be some hilarious moments.

5 Star Review of Enchanted (Masters and Mercenaries #18.5) by Lexi Blake

Enchanted is a second chance at love story about Jared Johns and Sarah Stevens’s set in the Masters and Mercenaries world.

Jared is a successful actor, a man used to being in the spotlight and not always for the good. Sarah is a trauma nurse by day and a submissive by night. He broke her heart many years ago and because of that she will not put herself out there again. Jared realises what he lost when he walked away from Sara

At first I was confused because I didn't understand what the hell had happened with Jared and his former best friend (I think it was from Kori and Kai's book, but I haven't read all the Masters and Mercenaries books). However, it wasn't a huge deal because its all just background. Jared and Sarah have a bit of a second chance story of sorts. Sarah is dealing with LIFE ALTERING news. No lie-I cried through like the last 25% of the book because she was breaking my heart. However, I thought this wa ...more

Jared and Sarah have a very complicated history, they fell in love but Jared walked away from her during a particularly terrible moment in both of their lives. He had good reasons for leaving but Sarah still finds it very hard to forgive him for abandoning her. Now, just as they started to reconnect for the first time in months, Sarah has been given some pretty devastating news and it's her turn to pull away from him. Jared isn't willing to let her leave without giving him some answers though, h ...more

Enchanted, the newest novella in Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries, has two purposes: 1 - it allows readers who are fans of 1001 Dark Nights to introduce themselves to a new author/series; 2 - it allows fans of Blake’s already established series to check-in with the Taggart brood and all of the masters and submissives of Sanctum while also reading about the self-created obstacles that force Jared Johns to take things into his own hands when it comes to winning the heart of his one and only ‘s ...more

Funny and touching, with wonderful characters and a fairytale feel

Part of the author’s Masters and Mercenaries and related Bliss, Colorado series, the author has created a complex world, with many complicated and intriguing characters. It’s a world I’m still exploding as I was a latecomer to the series, and while this works well as an intro, imo, you’ll get more enjoyment from it if you’re already familiar with at least some of the characters and their backgrounds.

This novella started with a ‘written voice-over-ish’ type intro and a prologue from the POV of another I was puzzled but optimistic.

3.75 stars. This was a good book. Enchanted is Jared and Sarah's book. We have seen Jared and Sarah's story play out in the background over many books in the Masters and Mercenaries series. Jared is a tv and movie star and is the brother of Kai, Sanctum and Mackay-Taggart's resident psychiatrist. Sarah is a nurse, a sub at Sanctum, and Kori's (Kai's wife) best friend. In previous books, we've seen Jared's friend turn out to be a serial killer who kills Jared's exes. When Jared and Sarah meet in ...more

If you follow my reviews, then you know that I can't resist anything written by Lexi Blake. So it shouldn't surprise you that I devoured this new, somewhat short story the first chance I got. And even less surprising that I loved every single word of it.

Which, if you think about it, what's not to like. Getting to revisit with some of my favorite characters (Charlie and Big Tag :D), check. Two amazing characters finally getting their HEA, check. A little bit of heartbreak, some misunderstood feel

Master's and Mercenaries is one of my all time favorite series. I read the first book before I realized the importance of reviews to authors.

I have started a re-read of the series and when I saw this book I knew I had to request it. Kai and Jared are favorites of mine.

Now I wasn't sure how this was going to play out. When Ian and Charlotte get playful things always get very interesting.

Jared isn't on TV anymore, he hasn't had any movie roles either, but he is producing things. Including a docum
