Blog Tour Review: SUBMISSION IMPOSSIBLE by Lexi Blake

They will have to learn to trust in each other if they hope to survive.

Submission Impossible, the first in the all-new, must read Masters and Mercenaries: Reloaded series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is out now!

He loves the sweet life

Greg Hutchins is reluctantly adulting these days. He’s settled in his job, recently bought his first house, and has a network of friends he can call family. But there’s something missing in his life, and he can’t quite put his finger on it. When he’s assigned to a case that involves investigating a biochemical company, he meets a woman who’s sweeter than any candy. Maybe she’s just the thing to make him feel complete.

She’s ready for the future

Noelle LaVigne has faced plenty of tragedy in her life, but she’s on the right path now. Between her new job and settling into a new city, she’s got no time for dating or relationships. She’s worked hard to get where she is, and no man is going to push her off track. Except the minute Hutch crosses her path she can’t seem to think about anything but the handsome security expert. He’s there to find a corporate spy, but late-night work sessions make her think they’ve both found something much more meaningful.

A twist they never saw coming

When the case becomes dangerous, both of their futures are on the line. And when the bullets start flying, they will have to learn to trust in each other if they hope to survive.

“I’ve spent a lot of my evening researching your boss, and she’s dangerous. I think her corporate structure is sketchy, too. I think there’s a good chance she’s under some kind of investigation, and you’re going to get dragged into it. Is there any way you could take a couple of weeks off?” It was the conclusion he’d come to. He would feel safer if she didn’t go back into that building again. She shook her head. “I can’t. If I leave, I leave my research behind, and I’m close. If I prove my processes can work I’ll be able to hire on anywhere, and that would be remarkable at my age.” Well, it was the answer he’d expected. “I want you to keep your eyes open and call me the minute you feel like anything’s weird. Trust your instincts.” He let out a breath and admitted the answer he’d come to. “I’m going to let Kyle go in with you tomorrow.” “Good, because I have it on the highest authority he was going to take that job anyway.” It was good to know he was in charge. He closed the screen of his laptop. He should go to bed and let her have some peace. She had to be at work early in the morning. He would lay on her couch and stare at the ceiling. He was about to stand when Noelle beat him to it. “Hey, you didn’t get your prize.” “Prize?” “That’s kind of what you wanted, right? I’m supposed to give you something for opening up to me.” “I wasn’t thinking about it as a prize, though I can see where you would.” He wanted to explore this thing between them, and having her talk to him or tell him something important about herself would do that. But he wasn’t going to push her. “You don’t have to if you don’t want to.” He was going to go slow. He was going to get to know her and ease into a friendship that could become something more. He had to be patient. “I want to.” She crossed the space between them. “I want to give you this.” She had another Red Vine in her hand. He’d wanted something personal from her. Something that would let him know this woman better. He got his own candy back. Story of his life. Still, he gave her what he hoped was a game smile and reached out. “Thanks.” She pulled her hand back before he could take the candy. It wasn’t even a full one. It was the last little piece of what he’d given her. “I want you to take it from me.” She licked her lips and put it in her mouth. He was fully awake now, and about three thousand reasons this was a bad, bad idea went through his head. It was too soon. She was sheltered and inexperienced. He was not. He had needs that would shock her. She’d literally said she didn’t do weird sex stuff. He did. A lot of weird sex stuff. He should wait because she wasn’t doing this because she was in love with him. She was doing it because they had wild chemistry and she couldn’t help herself. He should be the senior partner and end this experiment of hers. She settled on his lap. Suddenly every muscle in his body was tense and waiting to see if she was doing what he thought she was doing. “Noelle?” She lifted her face to his, offering that last bit of sugar, and he gave up the idea of waiting.

Intense suspense, intense romance, intense geekiness! Lexi Blake continues to captivate readers with a new spin off of the Masters and Mercenaries, Reloaded Submission Impossible 


Noelle LaVigne prides herself on her independence. Overcoming a crippling car accident,  got her legs back,  gaining independence by going to college and living on her own and landing a job that allowed her to do what she loves while giving her the experience to make the step for her dream job. Noelle is determined to live her best life. Try new things and discover who she is. When Noelle feels something is off with her research computer, her father being a man of the law with a few favors owed calls in the big guns to help out his little girl.  What was something Noelle was trying to brush off becomes a big deal.  


Greg Hutchins is as sweet of a man as the candy he likes to eat. A truly good man that knows all things involving technology. Hutch is definitely one of those men that you don’t judge a book by its cover. His exterior is all never settle down, sexy geeky Dom. Once you get past those outer layers you find a protective, genuine, loyal and sweetest man.  Amazing intelligence and a gentleness that will melt your heart. Willing or not.  Hutch is tasked with the protection of a new client, is it just a new case or are the bosses trying to play in their matchmaker ways? Making a fool of himself in front of the client before he even knows the client, has him stunned in a way that has him changing his way to make it right.  He was not going to fall victim to office matchmaking or is he?  


Submission Impossible is fantastic and thrilling beginning to this new spin off of the Masters and Mercenaries series. Reloaded. Noelle was introduced in Ms. Blake’s Bayou Butterfly Series. I love the growth of this character. She is living her dream, as independent as she can be and willing. Hutch is just so likable. Even the kids liked him. The candy may have had something to do with that.  From the moment they met standing in the security line, Noelle and Hutch sparked together.  Thinking someone just messing around with her computer became so much more that anyone expected. From unknown danger to finding someone that makes you feel so much more. Hutch was so tender while pushing and protecting at the same time. Noelle’s courage and strength are remarkable. With danger down their necks, two geeky, intelligent and stubborn people found something that they don’t want to live without. Captivating and entertaining, Lexi Blake is a master!  x
