Close Cover: A Masters and Mercenaries Crossover #1

By Lexi Blake


Remy Guidry doesn’t do relationships. He tried the marriage thing once, back in Louisiana, and learned the hard way that all he really needs in life is a cold beer, some good friends, and the occasional hookup. His job as a bodyguard with McKay-Taggart gives him purpose and lovely perks, like access to Sanctum. The last thing he needs in his life is a woman with stars in her eyes and babies in her future.

Lisa Daley’s life is going in the right direction. She has graduated from college after years of putting herself through school. She’s got a new job at an accounting firm and she’s finished her Sanctum training. Finally on her own and having fun, her life seems pretty perfect. Except she’s lonely and the one man she wants won’t give her a second look.

There is one other little glitch. Apparently, her new firm is really a front for the mob and now they want her dead. Assassins can really ruin a fun girls’ night out. Suddenly strapped to the very same six-foot-five-inch hunk of a bodyguard who makes her heart pound, Lisa can’t decide if this situation is a blessing or a curse.

As the mob closes in, Remy takes his tempting new charge back to the safest place he knows—his home in the bayou. Surrounded by his past, he can’t help wondering if Lisa is his future. To answer that question, he just has to keep her alive.


Close Cover is Remy and Lisa’s story.  Lisa is a great character.  She could have taken the easy road and not reported her boss for his illegal accounting but she did what was honest and paid the price. No one would hire her and more than one person was after her.

Remy hurt Lisa’s feelings a long time ago and never had any intention of seeing her again.  But when someone needed to protect her he stepped right up.  (Maybe the money had something to do with it at first.)

Close Cover puts all the characters in this group back together and is so good.  Remy and Lisa had crazy chemistry and there was no denying these two belonged together. I would say that if you don’t like spoilers or finding out the resolution to other crossover stories save this book for last or save the epilogue for last.  I’m the kind of reader that skips to the end after the first chapter and then goes back to read everything in between so it didn’t bother me.  And as always love Ian Taggart.

Can’t wait to see where Lexi Blake goes with Wade Rycroft!!!
