Summary

Come visit the hottest BDSM club around and meet the Stronghold Doms....

Lexie grew up with a crush on her brother's best friend, Patrick. He's gorgeous, sexy, controlling, and arrogant, and she knows that he wants what amounts to a full-time submissive. So far, none of his girlfriends have ever been able to give him what he needs, but she's sure she's just the woman for him. She keeps pushing the boundaries of their relationship, until he agrees to allow her into the BDSM club that he owns, Stronghold, and train her. She can't help but wonder, will she be able to prove to him that they're worth the risk, or is she going to end brokenhearted?

Hands off. That's what Lexie is to Patrick, and not just because she's his best friend's little sister. It's also because her family is practically his, they share all of the same friends, and he's worried about breaking her heart. The sweet little pixie he's always known has grown up into a gorgeous young woman, one whom he wants to tie up, spank, and control. She's passing every test he sets in front of her, but can she convince him that they'll be able to make it work before her brother comes home and Patrick has to ask his best friend if he can date his little sister? Because if she can't, Patrick knows he'll remain silent on the subject forever. It's just not worth tearing apart the people he considers his family, not to mention the family of friends that he's made, if he and Lexie aren't able to meet each other's needs. For now, he's going to make what memories he can while he keeps his promise to train her.

He knows he's toeing the line during her training, but he just can't seem to stop himself, and she's starting to break his careful control.

This is the third book in the Stronghold Doms series.

Love Lexie!!!

This book was so good!!! I love Lexie... from the moment I met her! And Patrick... He grew on me. He was so stern and unmoving before!!! I understand how Lexie felt she needed to push him!! Not that we should push our Doms!!

Everyone with BDSM reality or fantasy should listen to this book!! Roberto Scarlato is excellent!!

On to Book 4 for me!!!

What a fantastic relationship

This relationship is perfect. With an Alpha that gives everything a sub needs and more, and a subbie that has just the right amount of attitude to put her Alpha in his place. A brilliant storyline of give and take. Written very well and a fantastic performance from Roberto.

Love this whole series!

I love this whole series and Mastering Lexie is no exception. Here we finally get Lexie and Patrick's story. It is hot and kinky! Patrick is the owner of Stronghold and an alpha dom. Lexie is a bit of a brat who has had a crush on Patrick for years. Together they have quite an erotic story not to be missed. Roberto Scarlato did an amazing job with both the male and female characters at bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Patrick💘Lexie! Outstanding Story & Audible Listen🎧

First off, I love this series, I have had the pleasure of enjoying several of the “Stronghold
Doms” books and the entire “Venus Rising” series, which I loved too. This is Lexie and Patrick’s story and I loved every word of it. I’ve met Lexie before, in the beginning she worked the front desk at Stronghold, the Kink Club, eager to get her foot in the door and become a member. She is outgoing with a bubbly personality, you can not help but love her. Patrick, a no nonsense alpha Dom is one of the owners and runs the place, Lexie has crushed on him forever, but he is his brothers best friend and thinks of her as his little sister. Does he feel more? Patrick keeps his feelings for Lexie to himself, he did not want to risk his friendship with her brother or the camaraderie with his friends at the club. But lines get crossed when he takes her on as a submissive in training. Can he hold on to his control or will he fall and take a chance on Lexie. I loved how their story plays out, they are so good together and for each other. It is great to see Stronghold crew, subs and Doms again, they are one great group of people. They look out for each other and pitch in when help is needed. It is great how each couple in this book as their unique kink and relationship, Patrick is a bossy master and Lexie loves to be bosses around. Golden Angel, thank you for another great story.

I listened to the audible edition, Roberto Scarlato is terrific narrator and voice performer. He brings these characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. He does a great job projecting the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Love this series!

Golden Angel has done it again. Lexie and Patrick are a couple that sizzles. There was such smart dialogue and the journey of getting together kept me riveted through the entire book. Roberto Scarlato did an amazing job with the narration. i’d love this book the first tome I read it but hearing the words just gave it additional dimensions. It was also fun to see the Stronghold gang from the previous book. This book reads well as a stand alone but I urge you to read the whole series. You won’t be disappointed. I received this audiobook through a newsletter giveaway.

My favorite in series so far!

This is the first series I've read/listened to by Golden Angel. I have loved it so far. I am so invested in all the characters. Even though these can be read/listened to as standalones, they are best as a series! I absolutely LOVED Lexie and Patrick's romance. It was sweet, hot, frustrating, and enduring all rolled together. A brother's best friend romance is a favorite trope of mine. Patrick's concern for his "adopted" family was felt and although I understood Lexie's thoughts, I was definitely team Patrick!

Robert Scarlato is an excellent narrator. He voices male and females wonderfully. I do not get tired of listening to his easy going, smooth, deep voice. He's becoming a favorite narrator.

Love this series!

Ugh! I'm a reader... not a writer. But I'll leave this review because Golden Angel asked me too, and next to Nora Roberts (JD Robb Death Series), she is my favorite writer. She sees the subtleties of relationships.

Great story robotic narration.

so as usual the writer puts out a book that is so rich in detail and understanding of both characters that I can't help but love it and even though once again it's hard to notice if you are a real stickler for robotic narration and you don't like it I don't blame you and you should definitely buy this on Kindle now if you are willing to put up with it you will truly enjoy this book and if you don't want to do either then you're an idiot and you probably shouldn't be reading anything involving BDSM because this series is good I really absolutely love it and the characters not to mention the character development which is really on point and amazingly well written but there are some little issues that the writer could tweak mainly it's just that the characters develop so fast but hey you have to finish the story in a certain amount of time and the story is so fantastic I don't care if it was done in a robot voice besides the voice actor is really not that bad I would give him three stars cuz I know it's partially the record is fault and I will definitely be suggesting this book to people that I know and you the next person who reads it as well.

Mastering, Loving and Agonizing periods

I love this story as it shows how people don’t always see the changes in people that they live with day to day. While those that don’t see them daily see the differences. This is because her inherited brothers through her brother. They are watching out for her while her brother is over seas in the military.

Lexi has to fight and push to get her adopted brother’s to see her as an adult instead of as kid. The only one that has not had the issue of seeing her as an adult is Andrew because he moved away to New York for a long time after the relationship he had been in and failed.

Patrick was the other exception because he fell in love with her as a man loves a woman instead of a brother and sister relationship like the rest of them. The other huge difference is that he needs a bratty sub, but he also needs total submission all the time not just at the club or in bed. He needs the control and always has.

Lexi needs to be controlled and accountability that she lost when she moved out of her parents house. She is bratty all while submitting all the time. She had been in love with Patrick for years just like Patrick loved her. The big difference between her and Patrick though is that she didn’t fight it once she became an adult where Patrick fought tooth and nail. He had a good reason to fight it as her brother was about to leave to go back over seas into a dangerous war zone and he didn’t want to put this on his mind while he was in so much danger.

When he was going to be home soon Lexi pushed him to the point he couldn’t wait until then and ended up having to tell him prior to him coming home, because Lexi pushed him to the point that he could not fight it anymore.

They then finally get together after he speaks with her brother while he is still overseas. They were in love and happy when her brother came home and she spent more and more time with Patrick at home and at the club.

It was a great story that is realistic and full of the love, dominance and control. It is my favorite type of dominance. It is a must read for those of us that like full on dominance and maybe a little bratty as well.
