Love the Way You Spy by Lexi Blake Release Blitz

Dare can’t trust her, but it might take Tasha and her family to save his life and uncover the truth.

Tasha Taggart isn’t a spy. That’s her sisters’ job. Tasha’s support role is all about keeping them alive, playing referee when they fight amongst themselves, and soothing the toughest boss in the world. Working for the CIA isn’t as glamorous as she imagined, and she’s more than a little lonely. So when she meets a charming man in a bar the night before they start their latest op, she decides to give in to temptation. The night was perfect until she discovers she’s just slept with the target of their new investigation. Her sisters will never let her hear the end of this. Even worse, she has to explain the situation to her overprotective father, who also happens to be their boss.

Dare Nash knew exactly how his week in Sydney was going to go—attending boring conferences to represent his family’s business interests and eating hotel food alone. Until he falls under the spell of a stunning and mysterious American woman. Something in Tasha’s eyes raises his body temperature every time she looks at him. She’s captivating, and he’s committed to spending every minute he can with her on this trip, even if her two friends seem awfully intense. He doesn’t trust easily, but it’s not long before he can imagine spending the rest of his life with her.

When Dare discovers Tash isn’t who she seems, the dream turns into a nightmare. She isn’t the only one who deceived him, and now he’s in the crosshairs of adversaries way out of his league. He can’t trust her, but it might take Tasha and her family to save his life and uncover the truth.

I have loved the Masters & Mercenaries series for well over a decade now, and remember them all so clearly from the very first book with Sean and Grace... so I really LOVE that we still get to meet the original Taggart clan, but with a whole new generation to enjoy doing the groundwork and still Big Tag, Ian, and Charlotte come in and save the day !

I am loathed to mention any of the details of the story, as you need to let them unfurl as you read – but let’s say that a good grounding in previous Masters & Mercenaries books will help you understand some of the ramifications of the mission they are on, as well as give you deeper context to the lead characters too.

Tasha is such a loyal, loving person and will do anything for her adopted family – much as they would do for her – so being required to go out in the field to spy on someone she has just met but really likes... not great. But of course, she will do it. And what a lot of crazy unfolds as the young Taggart team try and do the right thing, but end up involving the older generation when it all gets a lot more dangerous. Loved the resolution and that Dare gained the one thing he never had – a family.

Already planning a free weekend for March '24, when the next installment is due!

This is the new series spinoff of Masters & Mercenaries called New Recruits. The new recruits are Big Tag's kids and other agency kids all grown up. This is Tasha and Dare's story, and it is a great one. Tasha and the others are out at a bar and meet Dare and his friend when Tasha and Dare hit it off. The heat is off-the- charts and they spend the night together and it is one they will never forget. The next day, Tasha finds out that Dare is the person they are looking for. Then everything hits the fan before she can tell Dare who she is. Along the way, Big Tag and her mother show up too. Now Tasha has to figure out how to keep Dare from hating her and Big Tag from being disappointed in her and her sisters.

This story is fast-paced, steamy, and sexy, with some BDSM action, and a whole lot of action-packed awesomeness. I highly recommend this book and that you read the others in the Masters & Mercenaries series so you don't miss anything.

M/F Romance

This is a great story. You are given Tasha, who normally is a behind the scenes type of agent. But when her siblings convince her to live a little and go wild, nobody knew how crazy life was about to get.

Tasha is level-headed, steady, and, most of all, trustworthy. But when her one-night stand becomes her target, she'll have to throw away her emotions and let her mind drive the bus. Saying that is one thing. Living that is another. Tasha finds herself struggling with what is being asked of her and when new players come onto the scene, she'll really have to fight for what she wants.

Dare isn't like his family. He wants to live a great life, sure, but he doesn't want the baggage that comes with it. When he sees Tasha, when he meets Tasha, he's intrigued. Dare's life has been a series of lies, mistrusting people, and he's had to figure out how his own world works.

These two come from very different worlds and when those worlds collide, sparks fly, feelings fling, and bullets whiz by. Tasha and Dare will have to work together, even when their emotions are running amok.

I loved how Blake was able to really weave this story using great characters. I can't wait for the next one. You won't be disappointed.
