Memento Mori (Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten Book 1) by Lexi Blake

Blurb –

Six men with no memories of the past
One leader with no hope for the future

A man without a past

Jax woke up in a lab, his memories erased, and his mind reprogrammed to serve a mad woman’s will. After being liberated from his prison, he pledged himself to the only thing he truly knows-his team. Six men who lost everything they were. They must make certain no one else gets their hands on the drugs that stole their lives, all while hiding from every intelligence organization on the planet. The trail has led him to an unforgiving mountainside and a beautiful wilderness expert who may be his only hope of finding the truth.

A woman with a bright future

River Lee knows her way around the Colorado wilderness. She’s finally found a home in a place called Bliss after years lost in darkness. The nature guide prefers to show her clients the beauty found in the land, but she also knows the secrets the mountains hold. When she meets Jax, something about the troubled man calls to her. She agrees to lead him to the site of an abandoned government facility hidden deep in the forest. She never dreamed she was stepping into the middle of a battlefield.

A love that could heal a broken soul

Spending time with River, Jax discovers a peace he’s never known. Their passion unlocks a side of himself he didn’t even know he was missing. When an old enemy makes his first move, Jax and River find themselves fighting for their lives. But when his past is revealed, will River be caught in the crosshairs of a global conspiracy?


Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

What can I say about this story?  Lexi is my ultimate one-click, never read a blurb, I don’t care what she’s writing author.  I know that no matter what is between the pages, I’ll be blown away, especially if it’s in the Masters and Mercenaries world.

Jax is one of the “Lost Boys” and while so innocent in some ways so deadly in others.  River is a gun-shy wilderness guide who learns about Jax’s secret in the worst way possible.  The chemistry these two share is off the charts but it’s the tenderness that makes the story so much better.

Twists and turns push these two apart but pull them back together at the same time.  While his past threatens her and those he cares most about can they be strong enough to find their way through.

Not only do we get more of the Lost Boys in this book, but we also get a bit more information about Ezra Fain.  However what I think I love best is the mentions of characters from The Perfect Gentleman series.  What I wouldn’t give to see those worlds actually collide in this series.  A perfect start to a series that is sure to tilt the Masters & Mercenaries world on its head.
