Guest Review: Midnight Revenge by Elle Kennedy

From the USA Today bestselling author of Midnight Captive, the latest Killer Instincts novel is “off-the-charts-hot” romantic suspense that takes readers into the heart of an enigmatic mercenary...

Out of all the stone-cold mercenaries in Jim Morgan's black ops organization, Derek “D” Pratt is the most intimidating. He is tight-lipped and covered in tattoos, and even the other guys on his team are afraid to ask him about his past. D’s been off the grid for years, but after his teammate Sullivan is mistakenly captured in his place, D is forced to come out of hiding and face his demons.

When D lands in Mexico, he’s ready to risk everything to save his friend. To complicate matters, Sofia Amaro, a feisty doctor whom D had a one-night stand with months ago, has tracked him down. And in an instant she’s unintentionally caught up in his life-threatening rescue mission.

Now D must extract not one but two people from the most violent world he's ever encountered. And one of them is carrying his child...



To say that this book was not what I expected would be an understatement. I’ve been a fan of this series from the get-go, but I was never a huge fan of Derek. He always rubbed me the wrong way with his abrasive, stand-offish personality.  So when I started this one, I wasn’t thrilled that it was his story. As a matter of fact, half-way through the book, I wasn’t really into it at all. But at one point, everything changed. Derek became the complete opposite of what he had always been, and I found myself feeling for him, wishing that the story wouldn’t come to an end. Honestly? Midnight Revenge is definitely one of the top three books of this entire series for me!

Derek wasn’t the only reason. The story is thrilling, fun and, in true Elle Kennedy form, sexy as hell. It’s got action, romance, and an edge-of-your-seat pace. I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to read this book and can’t wait for the next one.

If you haven’t read the previous books in this series, you should, as there are other stories woven in throughout this one.
  
I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book gifted to the blog, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
