BOOK REVIEW ― Submission is Not Enough (Masters and Mercenaries #12) by Lexi Blake


"A fallen hero reborn

Theo Taggart lost everything the night he died. His family, his beautiful Erin, and worst of all, he lost himself. A twisted doctor brought him back from the brink of death, but reprogrammed his identity to serve her will. Rescued by his brothers, he must fight to reclaim the man he was and the life, and love, that were stolen from him.

A love worth fighting for

Erin Argent thought she’d lost Theo forever. When he walked back into her life, it was nothing short of a miracle. Months of torture and conditioning at the hands of Dr. Hope McDonald have done damage to Theo that may never be mended. He has no memory of her or the life they shared. Breaking through to him, and helping him rediscover all he lost, will be the toughest mission she’s ever faced. Luckily for Theo, Erin loves a good fight.

Their reunion under siege

Unfortunately, Hope is far from done with Theo Taggart. Obsession with her prize experiment, she will do anything to get him back. If the only way to finally break him of his past life is to kill Erin and his son, then she’s only too happy to oblige…"

Rating & Review


Let's talk about heartbreaking reads, shall we?

Submission is Not Enough is a painful roller coaster of emotion, loss, and "forgotten" love. I have semi-permanent tear tracks on my face all day from this book. I can't tell you what started it, but I can tell you the waterworks were consistent and continually being fueled by Lexi Blake's intense writing.

The highs were soaring and the lows had me looking for chocolate and snuggles. I love when a book is so well written that you feel the pain, feel the love, and feel the utter chaos. Submission is one of those books. It's book 12 in an impressive series of alpha males, D/s lifestyles, and terrorism/spy stuff. (Yes, that's a technical description- spy stuff)

If you like former military alphas with a protective streak the size of Texas, then why haven't you one clicked it yet? Yes, hot and heavy it is, but the story is the real gem. Worth every page and I can't wait for the next one!
