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.

When it comes to authors who know how to write a damn good story, Ms. Kennedy is one that takes the cake. So, obviously, when Midnight Target was an option, I snatched it up immediately! Knowing that this series is coming to a close, I was anxious to get my hands on it and dig right in. 

I began the book and I was immediately hooked. From the beginning, it draws you in, starting off with one hell of a bang! From there, it evolves in to an exciting thrill ride that left me frantically turning pages, desperate to know how the story would eventually pan out. Of course, I was never, at any point, disappointed. 

I enjoyed reading Cate and Ash’s story. It was a great way to tie their relationship together, and watching it unfold through the creative talents of Ms. Kennedy made it all the better. And while I know their story was the main focus in Midnight Target, they weren’t the ONLY focus. I actually really enjoyed that aspect, and wish more authors would take note of how to successfully tell more than one story at a time. That being said, it made me infinitely happy that I was able to witness Liam and Sully’s story also. It was about time, and quite frankly, I found it far more romantic than Cate and Ash! 

As is the usual with books from this series, Ms. Kennedy has done an outstanding job. It’s a fast-paced, wonderful story with phenomenal, well-developed characters. It’s bittersweet that the series has to come to an end, but I can honestly say that this was one hell of a ride. 

I voluntarily read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.

A New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Elle Kennedy grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario, and holds a B.A. in English from York University. From an early age, she knew she wanted to be a writer, and actively began pursuing that dream when she was a teenager.
