She’s got a broken heart...
and a fully loaded arsenal....

Ex–army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but eighteen years ago in Paris, he was part of a black ops unit whose mission was to hunt down a rogue operative. In order to trap the criminal, Jim seduced Noelle, the man’s daughter—a ruthless act that cost him the love of his life and turned her into a mortal enemy. Now he can’t trust her, but he still desires her. He also needs her help....

Older, wiser, and unwilling to play the fool again, Noelle runs a group of highly skilled assassins. And she’s just been offered the hit of the century: Eliminate Jim Morgan. History gives them no reason to trust each other, but with their lives in jeopardy at the hands of a common enemy, the lines between love and hate are soon blurred. Now Noelle and Jim must face the past if they want to have a future—let alone a future together.

my thoughtsAlrighty everyone, Midnight Action is an action packed page turner that you will NOT be disappointed about reading. The book is fast paced with a healthy dose of sex appeal. This is not for the faint at heart. Jim and Noelle are total badasses and their story line is amazing. I mean, how can you go wrong with a story that involves accepting a hit on your sworn enemy who also happens to be the man you once loved. It screams tangled drama with blurred lines in the best way. This book had some great moments of humor, some tantalizing suspense, and gave us a thrilling ride that had us at the edge of our seats. There were some moments of predictability but nothing glaring and for not being a huge romantic suspense reader, this one still managed to hold my attention. We see some great character growth and development and an interesting plot twist. This is the first book in the series I’ve read and I must say, I’m very interested in seeing what the rest of the Killer Instinct series holds. 4 coffee cups about the author A USA Today bestselling author, Elle Kennedy grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario, and holds a B.A. in English from York University.
