Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage. And she's the good guy.
Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: trust no one.
Abby's latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.
The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.
Midnight Rescue is unlike any books I have read lately! It not only has romance, but also A HUGE AMOUNT of action!! I sat on the edge of my seat almost the entire book.
This book is the first book in an 8 book series. It starts out with Abby Sinclair, a deadly BAD ASS assassin, going undercover to expose and eliminate a truly evil group of men. She intentionally blows her cover to be taken captive and get closer to freeing innocent victims. Abby's boss is very worried about her safety so she reaches out to an awesome group of mercenary men to rescue Abby. Little did they know, that was only the beginning of a dangerous mission.
I have to start by saying I freaking love that Elle Kennedy gives us such bad ass women that can kick some serious ass and are fiercely independent!! These are my favorite heroines to read about. I also loved Kane. He was so sexy, strong, and about his business. GAHHHH you know the man made it on my book boyfriend list. I truly enjoyed getting to know all the men in the mercenary team and all the women on the assassin squad. The sexual tension is undeniable as always with Elle Kennedy!
I am rating this book 4 stars because it was a great action-pack, suspenseful story that had me staying up late to finish it. I can't read the rest of the books in this serious. I can only imagine it getting better and better as we get to know more about all the characters!
