ARC REVIEW - Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy

Thrilling, intense and addictive are some of the words I would use to describe this book. Elle Kennedy's writing is versatile and passionate, I've had the chance to read her previously and every time I try a new series I fall in love again with her characters and her talent.

Midnight Target is the last installment in the Killer Insticts series, but it can be read perfectly as a standalone. In this book the author developed the story of two couples, but bring back all the past characters and built a plot both surprising and explosive.

At the beggining of the book we travel to South America with Cate. She's a journalist looking for her next big story, but she's also the daughter of an overprotective supersoldier. Cate's passion is to take pictures, to capture moments with her camera, and that passion could cause her many problems.

And it happens...

She snap a picture. The one that could make her win a Pulitzer prize, but also the one that will change the game and put her in the line of fire. Suddenly all the things she was trying to let behind, all that things she was trying to forget, are back in her life. When she asks her father for help, she's opening the door to Ash too. The man who broke her heart. The man she's still in love with.

But Cate's actions bring some serious consecuenses. Her father get shot while he was rescuing her, and his opperatives call for revenge. A war is coming, and while they're looking for a way to clean the mess, a way to beat their enemies, they also must face their feelings.

The other romantic plot is a friends-to-lovers romance, but I don't want to talk too much about it to avoid the spoilers. Even though, this couple is so hot it burns! 

As a fan of romantic suspense novels I recommend this one. Even if you aren't read the previous installments. The action, the emotions and the descriptive flow in the book is amazing. This book has also an electrifying narrative rhythm. It was overwhelming and surprising how the characters evolved through the novel, how accurate were the regionalisms used in the scenes and the development of a war between mercenaries and a drug cartel, something that is pretty common this days in our countries. 

The two couples leading Midnight Target were perfect. Both couples had a long road ahead, and how the author resolved the romantic plots was flawless. I loved the book, and now I'm curious about the previous stories. I know they're a bunch of books, but I will find some time to catch up.

I want to dedicate a few words to Elle Kennedy and her assistant, Natasha, for the chance to enjoy and review this wonderful novel. It was a pleasure to work with you, girls.

About the Book

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Score and Midnight Revenge...

Four years ago, Cate’s entire life changed when she discovered she was the daughter of a supersoldier. But Jim Morgan’s overprotectiveness has pushed her away. These days, she’s working as a freelance photographer and living the dangerous life Jim never wanted for her.

When Cate snaps a photo linking a corrupt South American politician with the leader of a notorious drug cartel, her mercenary father leads a team to rescue her—only to get shot and critically wounded in the process.

As Morgan’s operatives rally together on a revenge mission, they’re faced with new alliances and old heartaches. Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton, the man who broke her heart two years ago, while Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port resurface after years apart to finally try to deal with everything they’d left unsaid.

Soon it’s all-out war between the cartel and the mercenaries—with two couples caught in the middle of the blood feud. Love and redemption are within their reach...but first they have to make it home alive.
