Series: The Mazza #3

Holy revelations. We escaped the Shadow Society’s attempt on our lives. My life. And didn’t that open a whole can of secrets. Still reeling from the pain of said secrets, I’ve done my best to avoid Rand and Yunez. But now one of us has been taken, and we’ve got to work together to get him back. I can’t let him stay there, even if we have to go against Yunez to save him. There’s so much anger to work through, so much hurt, and I can’t even claim it all. My Lusty Legion is rightfully upset. With so much wasted time, it’s a scramble to catch up, both in power and knowledge. More secrets are shared, old friends appear as new friends are made. As we prepare for a fight we aren’t certain we’ll win, we can either put our hurts aside or die.

This is the third book in the Mazza series and we finally get some explanations–as well as some more questions. I’m satisfied with the things that were uncovered, but Ms. Blessing managed to throw a few curveballs that I didn’t see coming and I am for sure looking forward to learning more in the next book!

The Heroine

Isolde–Iss–is facing her biggest challenges yet. Not only has she learned some new information about being a Mazza and all that it entails, but she’s learning new things about her men–dubbed her “Lusty Legion”–and growing closer to them. Iss has to work her butt off to get stronger and develop her Mazza powers, which was pretty neat to see. Her weapon of choice was … interesting, to say the least, lol.

I honestly find Iss to be a bit annoying, so there are times I felt kind of frustrated with her, but it wasn’t enough for me to dislike the story itself.

"I knew I could fall for you from the first moment I laid eyes on you."

The Heroes

The book starts out with the guys being upset with Yunez over lack of information and some secrets. Without giving too much away, it’s interesting to see the interaction between the guys and Yunez (and Rand) during this time. I love seeing the progression of how they work things out, but it definitely has some angsty parts that pull at your heartstrings.

This book heavily features Yunez, which I’ve been dying for from the start. There’s still so much we don’t know about him, but it was awesome getting a little more face time from him. The progression of how he fits in with the group was so worth it and I’m not ashamed to admit I may have let out a girly squeal a few times while reading 😉

Bullet Points

  • Yunez. Enough said. *heart eyes*
  • Nipple clamps. (Read the book; you’ll understand. And, no–it’s not what you think it is.)
  • New players that I did not see coming.

And if you want to know more, you’ve gotta read the book ;P


This book has plenty of angsty moments that caught me by surprise, but there are a ton of comedic moments, as well. Ms. Blessing has also turned the steam way up. I suggest you read this book by a fan … or at least have a T-A-L-L glass of ice water close by 😉

I can’t wait to read the next book to find out what happens next!

Happy reading!
