Nobody Does It Better by Lexi Blake Blog Tour


A spy who specializes in seduction

Kayla Summers was an elite CIA double agent, working inside China’s deadly MSS. Now, she works for McKay-Taggart London, but the Agency isn’t quite done with her. Spy master Ezra Fain needs her help on a mission that would send her into Hollywood’s glamorous and dangerous party scene. Intrigued by the mission and the movie star hunk she will be shadowing, she eagerly agrees. When she finds herself in his bed, she realizes she’s not only risking her life, but her heart.

A leading man who doesn’t do romance

Joshua Hunt is a legend of the silver screen. As Hollywood’s highest paid actor, he’s the man everyone wants to be, or be with, but something is missing. After being betrayed more than once, the only romance Josh believes in anymore is on the pages of his scripts. He keeps his relationships transactional, and that’s how he likes it, until he meets his new bodyguard. She was supposed to keep him safe, and satisfied when necessary, but now he’s realizing he may never be able to get enough of her.

An ending neither could have expected

Protecting Joshua started off as a mission, until it suddenly felt like her calling. When the true reason the CIA wanted her for this assignment is revealed, Kayla will have to choose between serving her country or saving the love of her life.

“Kayla?”

Her eyes came up, a flash of recognition there. “Yes?”

“Are you going to sign the contract or do you have more questions?”

She picked up the pen sitting on top of the contracts that would bind the two of them together for the next six months. They would reevaluate the relationship at that point in time, but for the next six months, she was his. His bodyguard. His submissive.

Bought and properly paid for. He would take care of her and she would give him what he needed.

She signed with a flourish and sat back, a gleam of curiosity in her eyes.

He was curious, too, and there was zero reason to not satisfy their curiosity. Hard and soft limits had been gone over. They would find their communication style as they went along. But first she should understand that he was in control.

“Come sit on my lap.”

She didn’t hesitate. She stood and turned, shifting so she could maneuver her way onto his lap.

Her weight came down on him and he wrapped an arm around her waist. Damn but she made him feel big. He’d seen her take out a man twice her size, but sitting here in his lap she felt small and vulnerable, and fuck but that did it for him.

He slid a hand along her knee, letting himself indulge in the silky-smooth feel of her skin against his palm. “Did you do as I asked?”

He was well aware his voice had gone husky, deeper than normal.

“Yes, Joshua.” She squirmed the tiniest bit, as though trying to find a comfortable position. It might be difficult for her because she was sitting right on his cock, and it was harder and thicker than he could ever remember it being.

“How can I trust you?” This was all part of the game he loved. Here he could let go and play out the darker of his impulses—to control, to take, to possess.

See. Want. Have.

“You’ll have to check,” she replied. “Though shouldn’t we go inside?”

He reached out and picked up his cell with his free hand, pushing one number and connecting to the security room. He put them on speaker. She needed to understand what she was up against in order for the game to be fair. “Landon?”

“This is Burke,” the deep voice replied. “Shane’s on patrol. What can I do for you?”

“Burke, I would like to fuck my submissive on the third-floor balcony. Is anyone watching us? Can you see any cameras pointed our way?”

A low, masculine chuckle came across the line. “No, Mr. Hunt. And given the angle relative to the beach, you should enjoy your evening without worry. The only peepers I would worry about would be your next-door neighbor, and Jared is out for the night.”

“I wouldn’t care if he wasn’t. Keep up the good work.” He hung up and his hand tightened. “I would prefer when we’re playing that you don’t question me like that. I know where I want to fuck you. I know when I want to fuck you, and I’m in charge. If I want you in the middle of a crowded freeway, your only response is a yes or a no. Not to question me.”

She seemed to relax back against him, as though she was giving up the struggle and choosing to submit. “Yes, Joshua. Yes, I understand, and yes to the sex. Please.”

He liked the breathy please and loved how she squirmed. Still, he wasn’t absolutely sure she’d obeyed him, and he was a man who required proof. He slid his hand up her thigh. “Spread your legs for me.”

Her knees fell apart, and he could feel the heat from her core. He slipped a hand up until he made contact with her softest skin. No panties. Nothing but wet heat waiting for him, and it was obvious the play had cranked her up, too. His free hand eased one button on her shirt free, and then another and another until he could move in like a soldier conquering territory. No bra. Her breasts were like the rest of her. Soft and delicate. One nipple rolled against his palm, hardening then and there.

“I can see you’ve been an obedient sub,” he said, his mouth against her ear. “You need to stay that way or there will be punishment. I’m not a sadist, Kayla. I truly don’t get off on your pain, but I will give it to you if you need it. I am a disciplinarian. I gain satisfaction from your obedience. In exchange, I’ll show you how good it can be to obey me.”

Joshua and Kayla have a very lucrative relationship with each other. Joshua is looking for a submissive who can also protect him and Kayla is trying to do the right thing for her agency and country.

Kayla has been living a double life for years. She knows her job and knows that she's amazing at it. What she is lacking is a companion. When she is hired on to protect Joshua, she knows that her employment is supposed to appear like a true D/s relationship.

Joshua has been searching for a submissive who he can play with, but he also knows that he has to take the people stalking him seriously. What he doesn't realize is how lonely he's been. When he meets Kayla, there is an instant attraction and he knows that they will match well.

Both are expecting to carry out their contract and go their separate ways. However, fate and love hand them a very different situation and both need to decide how they want to proceed. There will be betrayal in several forms, risky situations, old players and new players coming at the mystery from several different angles. I really hope in the next book there are more answers, but this was a fast-paced, steamy read that was very enjoyable.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the fifteenth (!) book in the series, and really you need to read them all to understand a lot of the back story, and all the threads that are woven through this tale. Whilst there are pointers to remind someone who hasn't read one in a while, I am not sure that a newbie would really get the implications of everything that is in play. So, I definitely recommend that you jump in at book one and just keep going. The concept of using Bond titles is incredibly fitting, as the stories are the ultimate in unbelievable, but fascinating spy cross and double cross. And right to the end of this one, I was trying to believe my gut feelings but being led along another path. If you enjoy the franchise, then you will definitely enjoy how the espionage is convoluted, continues through the novels, and links with the BDSM seamlessly.

On the overall plot which has been working through all the books, I think that Ms. Blake had an impossible task to make everything tidy at the end... and in fact, there are a few strings which will make good starts to off-shot series in the future. But as much as was possible, I was convinced by the elements we are given access to, as being resolved.

The romance that features in this book starts as fake, and yet Josh and Kay find a connection that they neither expected nor can really accommodate in the plan that each has hatched. Whilst I am not usually a great fan of the inner voice, in this book it is essential, given the level of subterfuge and dissembling. Knowing that they were falling in love made the story a lot more poignant and I did have to stop reading a few times to catch my breath when things got extra tense.

Good, chunky, well-paced, and satisfying read, thank you, Ms. Blake.
