I did enjoy this, but I just can't say I loved it. I adored the first 4 or 5 books in the original Masters and Mercenaries series, they had kink, passion, a story that didn't drag and a fresh feel. Whilst I'm sure Lexi Blake fans will love No Love Lost, for me it didn't bring anything new to the table.

It had great characters and plot twists galore, but those twists seemed to come out of nowhere. With a plot twist, I like to know there were clues and hints to it scatted throughout the story.

I have spent years, YEARS waiting for this book. YEARS. Y'all don't even realize the amount of want I had for this. When you crave a book this bad, when you're so desperate for a particular character's story and HEA, let me tell you something, you set your expectations high. You can't help it. Beck and Solo have spent years being some of the most memorable secondary characters in previous books. I've been

I love a good misunderstood story! The heroine had to make some pretty tough choices that cost her, her husband and love of her life. No Love Lost is all about the journey for Kim and Beck's lost love.

I don't know what it is about a misjudged or misunderstood storyline, but I do love them. I think it's more about the moment when the truth comes out and seeing the other party grovel to get back what they lost. That's exactly what you get with Beck and Kim. I really loved seeing that transformati

OMG, That was amazing!!!

Lexi Blake has give us a story that we can really sink out teeth into here. I have really enjoyed the series and this was a great way to end things. There's not only mystery, suspense, and action, but lots of steamy times as well.

With certain authors I know I am going to probably need tissues nearby when I read their stories. Usually with any story written by Lexi Blake, I yell, am incredulous when it comes to what she does to some of her characters, and in some cases, ready to throw the book across the room. In No Love Lost, Lexi Blake takes us on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and her characters are along for the ride. Without giving anything away, buckle up and get ready for Solo and Ezra's ride. Oh, make sure you h ...more

Finally. Beck and Kim are getting their second chance. But both of the struggle to move beyond the past. This book culminates all of the Lost Boys. Now it's kim and Beck. It comes down to this. Their love story I unraveling, but their stubborn asses are learning to trust and love. Roman makes it easy for them. I love this book. And..any Lexi fan can see the mirror ball. We get to see the next generation. Thank you for this.

Captivating me from the beginning to the very last word, No Love Lost was an incredibly beautiful, exceptionally written, second chance love story. As my most anticipated book of the year, I could not wait for Ezra and Kim's romance, as we were teased continuously with glimpses into their relationship drama throughout the entire Masters & Mercenaries: The Forgotten Series. It was well worth the wait and to say it went beyond my high expectations is an understatement as Lexi Blake had outdone her

Beck (Ezra) has a second chance with the woman he's always loved. So he's not going to screw up again and lose her. But first, he has to get her out of the mess she's in, and protect her. Then they'll talk, they'll rehash things. That's the plan at least, but we all know how plans have a way of going awry...

This series is crazy intense. The overarching plot is wrapped up sort of in No Love Lost, but of course there are always things go

'No love Lost' is another amazing story of the 'Master and Mercenaries' world by Lexi Blake. I have been reading this series for a long time and am going to get enough of these amazing characters!

We finally have Ezra!! I have waited for that man's story for such a long time! Solo is his perfect match and I literally couldn't wait to read about how she rips him a new one.

Beck blames Solo for his brother's death and the hate he spewed at her
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
I have watched Lexi Blake grow from a good story teller to a great novelist. No Love Lost is a prime example of her story telling ability, weaving it into an emotional and compelling book. This is one of the Master and Mercenaries novels, part of the Lost Boys series. Ezra Fain has been in love with Kim Solomon, aka Solo for years, and vice versa despite their divorce. After years of therapy to get his anger under control, Beck Kent took back his real name, instead of his late brother’s, Ezra F ...more

This is the fifth in the Lost Boys spin off by Lexi Blake, and knowing it is the last one makes for a very poignant read – even if there will be more spin offs in the future … these guys need to be around forever!

I absolutely suggest that you need to be up to date to really understand all the underlying storylines, plot twists and possibly most sadly the huge rift between Kim and Beck. Oh and why Levi Green is such a de
This book finally bring to a close the Lost Boys and Erza/Beck and Solo. It's been a long time coming and done in a way that I was finally rooting for Beck and Solo. It was easy or fast, this book alone spans over 7 years, but Beck and Solo were in a good place by the end, one where they were forced to face their issues and really decide if they wanted to be together and how all secrets were out now.

Once again highlights for me come from Ian on this one. He's such a busy body, but he makes me la

This, finally is Kim and Ezra's (Solo and Beck) story.

I love a good second chance romance. And, this one had everything you want in one with a couple who split up for reasons I am not going to spoil for those unfamiliar, but who also clearly still feel something for one another.

In with all of the second chance stuff, it had a couple of pretty good...woah, hold up, wait a darn minute, WHAT moments too.

We have been building up to Ezra Fain and Kim Soloman's book since the beginning of the Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten series. We've seen first hand that they're both crazy about each other but at the same time there is a lot of resentment between them for things that happened in the past. Ezra blames Kim for the things that happened between them but at the same time he just threw away their relationship without even trying to see her side of things.

I'm a huge fan of Lexi Blake's paranormal/Urban Fantasy work. Those books have consistently been auto buys for me. With NO LOVE LOST, Blake's romantic suspense series moves into that category as well.

I loved everything about NO LOVE LOST. After following Beck/Erza and Kim Solomon for numerous books I was more than ready to see these two finally fight for their love. Much like Sam and Alyssa in Suzanne Brockmann's GONE TOO FAR, NO LOVE LOST delivers and does so with everything her fans have come

Ezra is at it again, trying to save Solo from Levi Green. It has been 7 years since he has seen her but the love he feels for her is even stronger now. He has changed since the last time they saw each other, he has been through therapy, he is calmer now. He wants to try again with her.
She has kept several secrets from him for seven years, can they move past them and make a future together? Will Levi ca

The emotion in this book was epic. I got so wrapped in everything that was going on and nothing went the way I expected. It's what kept me reading and blowing through the book. I needed to know what would happen next. Would Beck and Kim find their way back to each other? Would Levi Green finally get what he deserved? How would it all be resolved? Romantic suspense isn't even my favorite romance trope but the way Lexi Blake writes it? That's when I want to read it. And I will keep coming back for

No Love Lost the 5th book in the Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten is the finale to the series. The 4 books all lead up to this last couple: Solo and Beck/Ezra.
I will say that I had very high expectations as Solo is one of my favorite characters in the entire series.

I am not going to summarize the story. I will say that I wasn't fond of this book.. I wanted a conclusion to the series, I needed to see where it played out and the endi

5 Star Review of No Love Lost (Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten #5) by Lexi Blake
I have been waiting not so patiently for Ezra Fain and Kim (Solo) Soloman’s story and oh what a story it was. Have you ever anticipated a book so much, that you didn’t want to start reading because you knew that when it was finished the series would be ended? That is the position I found myself in reading No Love Lost.

For fear of accidentally letting something slip, this will be a brief review. All I will say

4.5 stars--NO LOVE LOST is the fifth and final Instalment in Lexi Blake’s contemporary, adult MASTERS AND MERCENARIES: THE FORGOTTEN erotic, BDSM, romantic suspense series focusing on six former military soldiers (Jax, Dante, Sasha, Tucker, Owen, Robert and Ezra/Beck) whose minds and lives were eradicated and erased by a secret, unauthorized military experiment. This is former CIA operatives Kimberly ‘Solo’ Solomon, and Ezra Fain aka Beckett Kent’s story line. NO LOVE LOST should not be read as ...more
Fair Warning This review may seem like a rant.

I was super excited about this book.

But it tanked. Just like Theo Taggart's book Submission is Not Enough.

There was nothing new about it. Same old song and dance.

If you have been following this series, you will realize that it's just a concoction of various elements of previous books in the series.

NLL is divided into 2 parts.

Part 1 starts of fine but gradually falls apart...(view spoiler)

I was prepared heading into No Love Lost, ex-CIA agent Ezra (Beck) Fain and agent Kim "Solo" Soloman long-awaited story that it was going to be a doozy of a story line and that the twists and secrets that were woven into the plot would have my emotions running the gamut, as Beck and Solo fought to protect themselves from a litany of enemies, including each other. But I don’t think I was quite ready for the amount of disdain Beck still held for Solo and how his feelings of hatred toward her made ...more

Every inch of this book is bittersweet happiness. From the very start of the Lost Boys series' it has been some of Lexi Blake's best writing. No Love Lost was a culmination of years of hard work and carefully crafted plotting.

Her James Bond like suspense mixed with a high steamy factor has made this a favorite series of mine for almost a decade. The Forgotten branch of the Masters and Mercenaries series has truly brought me happiness like never before, interconnecting her other worlds, bringing

3.75 stars. This is a good book! No Love Lost is the highly anticipated story of Ezra/Beck and Kim/ "Solo" and is the final story in the Forgotten series. Ezra and Kim are a divorced couple that we have seen throughout this series. I was so glad to finally find out what happened between them in the past to make them so volatile when together in the glimpses we got of them. Beck and Kim's story is an emotional one and they went through a lot of pain. They had hurt each other so much that I someti ...more

Beck and Kim were CIA agents who met, fell in love and married until Beck’s brother died and he blamed Kim. Despite the love they shared this resulted in the demise of their marriage as Beck could barely look at her without exploding in anger let alone sharing his life with her until years later she is in danger from a mutual enemy.

There is nothing that Kim regrets more than her past with Beck. No one could blame themselves more than she does, so she takes whatever treatment he wishes to hurl a

From the beginning of this series and with every book, I’ve wanted to get the entire story with Ezra and Solo and to have this be the last book in this amazing series, it’s totally been worth the wait!
