A night he can’t forget

Five years ago, Nick Markovic found himself consumed by his quest for vengeance. The one time he managed to find peace was in the arms of Hayley Dalton. Being with her was like bathing in sunlight, and he ached to feel that again, but he couldn’t. He gave his oath to Hayley’s cousin Desiree, his partner at McKay-Taggart and Knight, that he’d never let his darkness infect Hayley’s innocent world.

A spark she can’t put out

It was years before that Hayley offered everything she had to Nick. After that one amazing night, all she wanted was to be his forever. Unfortunately, Nick’s reaction was to walk away from her and never look back. The warm and caring man she’d discovered was gone, and after Des’s death, he’d only grown colder. But when Hayley finds herself in mortal danger, she’s forced to seek protection from the man who broke her heart.

A flame that threatens to consume them both

Haunted by the women he failed, Nick can’t allow himself to grow close to Hayley again. Running to stay ahead of the powerful forces that endanger their lives, they travel from the lush Garden in London to the glittering lights of Rio. As the threat against her becomes clearer, he realizes that to keep her safe he must confront the demons from his past, even if it costs him a future with the woman he loves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars-betrayal, intrigue, love 3.75 stars---FOR HIS EYES ONLY is the thirteenth full length installment in Lexi Blake’s contemporary, adult MASTERS AND MERCENARIES erotic, romantic suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for McKay-Taggart and Knight Agency. This is former Russian agent Nick Markovic, and history professor Hayley Dalton’s story line. FOR HIS EYES ONLY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from previous story lines is revealed where necessary although there are references to ongoing scenarios from previous investigations and fall out. Told from dual third person perspectives (Nick and Hayley) FOR HIS EYES ONLY is a second chance romance between Nick Markovic and Hayley Dalton. Ten years earlier, a then fifteen year old Hayley Dalton fell in love with her cousin Desiree’s friend Nick Markovic; fast forward five years and twenty year old Hayley finds herself giving her virginity to the man that she loves only to learn that Desiree was the woman that Nikolai wanted. Five more years would pass before Hayley walked back into Nikolai’s life when her own life sat on the precipice of danger and death. Someone wanted Hayley dead and Nick is the man she turns to for protection and help. What ensues is the rekindling relationship between Nick and Hayley, and the search for the people responsible for threatening our heroine’s life. FOR HIS EYES ONLY has a very large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters (most of whom were previously introduced in earlier story lines). The slow building premise finds Nick Markovic as both protector and lover to the woman that calls to his heart. Nikolai is a Dom, and as a member of The Garden BDSM Club he does not want Hayley a part of that life but attention from a number of other males, and fellow agents at McKay-Taggart and Knight finds Nick on the offensive as he slowly introduces Hayley to the role as his submissive. The $ex scenes are intimate; the BDSM scenarios are light with some limited spanking, rope play, and oral $ex. Throughout the story line the reader is inundated with numerous references to Nick’s ex partner and girlfriend Desiree. Desiree is a former agent who got caught up in the game of power and greed, and when her life was forfeited, Hayley became the target of some powerful people hoping to acquire some information that Desiree kept hidden. Nick’s promise to protect Hayley comes with the guilt of his feelings for Desiree, and his continuing attraction to Hayley as well. For all intents and purposes, FOR HIS EYE ONLY felt more like a love triangle between Hayley, Nick and Desiree. Desiree was never out of mind for Nikolai, and in this I struggled with his attraction and love to our story line heroine. Nick’s need for Hayley was more of a power struggle with himself; a need to control that which he believed was his. FOR HIS EYES ONLY is an infinitely detailed and comprehensive story of mystery, suspense, betrayal and regret that follows several paths converging in a final show down where secrets are revealed; lies are confessed; the truth is a hard pill to swallow. The copious number of references to Desiree made it difficult to like our story line hero; the constant reminders of his relationship with Desiree was troubling not only for Hayley but for this reader as well. The premise is intriguing; the romance is heartbreaking and spicy; the characters are colorful and sensational. FOR HIS EYES ONLY is a provocative tale of betrayal, intrigue and love.
