    1 thought on “Just One Taste”

    1. 4 **yummy** STARS“She didn't know it yet, but he was the knight in slightly tarnished armor waiting for the princess to wake up.”Just One Taste is the second instalment in the Masters & Mercenaries spin-off series Topped. If you follow my reviews you probably know how much I love the original M&M series and there was no question in my mind that I would enjoy this as well.The spin-off series has everything I love. A freaking awesome surrounding cast, cameos by my favourite M&M cha [...]

    2. 4* so tasty yet delicious STARS!!Top is a high quality restaurant owned by Sean Taggart/Little Tag who hired some veteran/ex-soldier who have passion in culinary and cooking. You know him from the first book in the Master and Mercenaries series. After the previous book about Macon, the pastry chef, now Just One Taste came with new MCs.Eric Vale already attracted to Deena Holmes since the first time. Eric was a Captain America who has good heart and gentleman attitude. He is a sous chef at Top. D [...]

    3. First let me just say anything that comes out of Ian Taggart's mouth is gold, PURE gold! I think he may be the single most awesomest H EVER! *lol*Ok, on to the book review. I didn't love this one as much as some of the others. I just never warmed up to Deena, I found her judgey, whiny, and cold most of the time. I get her marriage left her bitter, but the constant pushing away went on to long for me. That said I LOVED Eric, he was perfect, he was sweet, he was hot, and devoted. I think had he be [...]

    4. This was a very enjoyable novella. The main characters were employees at Top(Sean's restaurant): Eric and Deena, but we got to see some of our favorite McKay-Tagart people(Iaaaan!). Eric is an ex-SEAL who didn't know what to do with his life after leaving the Navy. He found cooking and he's loving it. Now he wants to find that perfect someone. He's reliable and sweet and a great bet.Deena is a divorcée whos husband fucked over. She manages to put herself through school while working a full time [...]

    5. Shadow's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsIn just One Taste, Lexi Blake returns to her recurrent theme of people creating families from the people around them - and also to her lighthearted way of dealing with some serious issues.Eric has been in love with Deena for some time, but the wary submissive has major relationship issues and he has to exercise patience to claim her.They have time to learn each other as they both work at Top, the restaurant owned by Sean Taggart. They are al [...]

    6. Review posted => afterdarkbooklovers/2015/1It’s everything I’ve come to expect in a M&M read: Lexi Blake helped me realize exactly how much of a kinky chick I am. True story.One of the first BDSM romances I ever read was The Dom Who Loved Me because, seriously, look at the cover. /book/show/1.Anyway, I didn’t know much about BDSM but I knew I wanted to know more. Once Sean introduced Grace to a set of nipple clamps, I was hooked and I’ve been enjoying the Masters & Mercenaries [...]

    7. Scarred veteran and chef Eric has it bad for waitress, student, and man-hater Deena. Deena can't stop thinking about what it would be like to have a bad boy -- perhaps one that looks exactly like her nice guy coworker Eric -- spank and screw her silly. While a hot club fling sounds like fun, though, there's no way she'll ever let a man make her vulnerable again. But Eric is on a mission to be the last Dom she'll ever need.Although I sympathized with Deena, it was difficult to like her. She was s [...]

    8. Forget the gorgeous billionaires, the sexy lawyers, and the brooding motorcycle men. I want a beautiful man who can tie me up and cook me a damn good meal. Ladies, get ready to meet chef Eric Vail. He will bring you to your knees in more ways than one. This man who dominates in the bedroom, as well as the kitchen, is looking to settle down with a certain stubborn and sassy server. Eric and Deena's story takes us on a scorching hot, beautiful journey, that will leave you hungry for more.This ex-N [...]

    9. As soon as I read the first book, I ended up buying this second book immediately to read. There is just something about Ms. Blake's writing style which pulls me in. I enjoy it every time. This one is sweet and tart. Eric is a man with a lot of patience and he's the sweet one. Deena is the tart one. Really, for the love of good, Deena, pull your head out of your ass and stop driving the man crazy! This one is feisty with an insecure female with major daddy issues and a man who could possibly be a [...]

    10. I was really looking forward to this one, but Deena ruined it for me. From the start I didn't like her, didn't understand why everyone else did. She was so closed off, contrary and a bit of a bitch but only to Eric. I hated how Eric, who was a Dom, let her walk all over him. It seemed like he only brought out the Dom when they were playing, which seemed a bit odd to me. I hated how everyone had to keep telling Deena what a good guy Eric was. I felt like he deserved someone better. Late in the bo [...]

    11. I love the world of Big Tag. It's fun, it's ridiculously out there in terms of the alpha, not so bad, bad-boys and the women they spank AND dote on. The only reason this book gets a second star at all is we get to to spend a little time with the original characters. Big Tag is as grumpy as ever.Unfortunately, the heroine totally ruined it for me. Any idiot off the street knows more about BDSM than this idiot. She irritated the hell out of me. The hero was not a whole lot better. He's had a crush [...]

    12. Just realized that I had not been able to write a review this book when I read it a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, first, I have to say this: what's better than having a hot chef for a lover? A hot chef who was also a Dom and a veteran. Total fantasy man, right? Now that we have that out of the way I'm really enjoying this spin-off Masters and Mercenaries series so far. I love getting to know the characters that didn't hold significant roles in the other series.While Deena Holmes did have the hots [...]

    13. “He was the deep end of the pool and she wasn’t ready to jump in.”Just One Taste was my first book by Lexi Blake, so I wasn’t really sure what I was getting myself into. I was intrigued by the synopsis and just had to check it out. What I got was a really fun, sexy and entertaining read. This is one of those books that I would consider a guilty pleasure. The story-line was entertaining and pulled you in from the very beginning. The characters were fun and had excellent chemistry. They ha [...]

    14. This one was okay. I found myself liking Eric much more than I liked Deena. I have a hard time with any character who is as closed off as she is. The best parts of this were the incredible bits of wisdom that both Ian and Sean give both Eric and Deena. Also, Charlotte. The seasoned couples of Sanctum have already been through it and know what they're talking about. I'm also happy to see that we're kept in the look with regards to the search for our dear departed, you know who. It makes me more a [...]

    15. It started off strong and I love me some Lexi Blake but Deena Holmes is a thorn in my side when it comes to this book. She ruined it for me. She constantly went behind Eric's back and deflected everything. Quite frankly she doesn't deserve Eric. So the stars are for Eric only. And Ian let's not forget Ian.

    16. 3.5 stars Even though I’ve only read a few of the Masters and Mercenaries, I picked this up out of order because if there’s one thing I love reading is a good romance about a hot chef. Something about men that love to cook…. Eric is the sous chef at Top. A restaurant that ties into the original group of mercenaries (the Taggarts). He’s also ex military and after his time serving he was left with a severe scar on his face. He came out of all that with a very good attitude and even stronge [...]

    17. Food and sex. Is there any better combo out there? Eric Vail, former Navy SEAL and current sous chef at hot restaurant Top, has been hot for waitress Deena Holmes almost from the moment he met her. He knows her past really put her off of men, but he's determined to be her knight in slightly tarnished armor. Deena has a list of all the reasons why she refuses to go out with Eric, and she's totally not prepared to be partnered with him during D/s training at BDSM club Sanctum. Another foodie book, [...]

    18. I'm not sure what to make of these "Topped" novellas -- spinoffs from Blake's "Masters and Mercenaries" series.Deena Holmes, a server at Sean Taggert's restaurant, knows that sous chef Eric Vail would be nothing but trouble, and she's determined to keep her heart safe. Eric sees his chance with Deena when they're paired up for a Sanctum training course, where Deena thinks that their sessions will provide the intimacy she wants without having to commit to any real emotional involvement. As they g [...]

    19. I gave the book 4 stars only from a personal enjoyment perspective. I love these books because they are a spin off which allows some of my favorite characters to live on. Especially Ian. He just keeps getting better and better (Ian is one of those characters you wish author would devote another entire story to several years later). Anyway, Eric and Deena are good together and this book introduces some future characters I am sure will get their own book. Can't wait for some of those.

    20. Even though I've only read a few of the Masters and Mercenaries, I picked this up out of order because if there's one thing I love reading is a good romance about a hot chef. Something about men that love to cook. :)Eric is the sous chef at Top. A restaurant that ties into the original group of mercenaries (the Taggarts). He's also ex military and after his time serving he was left with a severe scar on his face. He came out of all that with a very good attitude and even stronger personality. On [...]

    21. Just One Taste tells the story of another D/s pairing made between employees of Top, Sean's restaurant. Eric Vail is a retired Navy SEAL turned sous chef and Deena Holmes is a college student working as a server. Eric is determined to make Deena his, yet no matter how many times he asks her out she continues to turn him down. Deena's noticed Eric, how could she not, yes, he's scarred, but that doesn't detract from his beauty. But, she works with him, maybe not for him, but close enough. There's [...]

    22. I received and ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.It's no secret that Lexi Blake has written one of the more successful BDSM romance series to date. Her Masters And Mercenaries series has become big throughout readers and fans. The books in this series have all gotten both negative and positive reviews (although there are definitely more positive reviews than there are negative ones). I am one of her fans, not only [...]

    23. Sexy and Fun! All of Lexi's books are filled with passion, love, family, humor and a lot of scorching hotness! I really enjoy seeing another side of the master and mercenaries crew and the many new characters in this novella that takes place at Sean Taggert's restaurant Top! Big Tag (Ian Taggert) plays part in the story, and it is full of his craziness! There is never a dull moment when he is around!Eric is an ex military sniper and the sous chef at Top. If there is one thing Eric knows best oth [...]

    24. 4.5 stars -My love for this series continues. I love these guys and ladies! They are so great. The "family" they have formed is just perfect. Ian is my standout even though he has very few scenes! I just laugh out loud when he talks! Deena and Eric are so perfect for each other even though Deena fights it tooth and nail. Everyone needs an Eric in their corner. Everything just works in this series and sub series with the restaurant. I hope Sebastian gets the new book, I would like to hear his sto [...]

    25. Another superlative BDSM romance by Lexi Blake. I absolutely love her books. They are the best in BDSM D/s romance novels with suspense and action thrown into the mix. Both the novels and novellas are among the best I've read in this genre. There are many authors out there pretending to write this type of novels and be good at it but very few reach the pinnacle that Lexi Blake has. Congrats Lexi on another superb read!

    26. This is the 2nd book in the Topped series, a spinoff of Lexi Blake's Masters & Mercenaries series. Eric, the sous chef has fallen for waitress, Deena. Eric is perfect. He is caring, yummy and very patient waiting for Deena to realize they are meant to be together. Deena had a horrible first husband and is afraid to take a chance. I really enjoyed this addition to the series.

    27. Eric was all that and a side of awesome. It was Deena I had issues with. She far surpassed brat status and was careening toward outright bitch. I get her reasons to be wary. I applaud her effort to get out there and expand her horizons and explore her own likes and dislikes. I hate that she wasted so many years with such an awful man. BUT - that experience does not give her license to treat Eric like crap when he did nothing to deserve it. It's one of my biggest pet peeves in books. My favorite [...]

    28. Another lovely story about the staff at Too, this time Eric and Deena. Deena has major trust issues while Eric just wants to love. Who will come out on Top? A brief respite from the action at Sanctum that isn't too heavy.
