(Previously titled Memento Mori)

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?

    Lexi Blake is a Mistress of story telling. There's intrigue, harrowing moments, passion.. Wow the passion is off the charts hot. I love catching up with old friends from Masters and Mercenaries and getting to know new characters, The Forgotten, The Lost Boys they need their story told. I'm excited for this newest addition to the series and can't wait to read more.

    5 Stars Memento Mori by Lexi Blake is the first book in the Masters & Mercenaries: The Forgotten series. It is a spin-off of the Master & Mercenaries and was fan-freakin’-tastic! Packed with so many twists and turns, I couldn’t put it down. As much as it made my heart pound at certain moments, it also had me crying a tear or two. If you’ve read the Masters & Mercenaries Series, you’ll know at the end of it Dr. Hope McDonald had captured and wiped the memories of six men-The Lost Boys. **edited to add-you don’t need to read the Master & Mercenaries series to fully enjoy and follow along with this one** Jax, who has no memory of his past, is a hacker that was rescued by Ian Taggert. Taggert and his team wants to help Jax and the rest of the Lost Boys figure out who they were before they were captured. While setting up their mission in Bliss, Colorado to try to find The Ranch(where they were held), Jax meets River and sparks fly. Even with no recollection of ever being with a woman, Jax knows she special. But with the danger that he is in, he doesn’t know if it worth the risk… River is dealing with the death of her father and trying to keep her business afloat. She doesn’t trust men but when she meets Jax, she can’t stay away. Will they be able to help each other through the pain and loss they suffered? Or will the danger Jax is in stop them from being together? Lexi Blake has me hooked with the start of this series. I loved it! Jax and River both balanced each other out and honestly their connection was beautiful to read. I cannot wait book 2 to come out!!!
