REVIEW: MIDNIGHT REVENGE: A Killer Instinct Novel by Elle Kennedy


MIDNIGHT REVENGE: A Killer Instinct Novel by Elle Kennedy

Publication Date: February 2, 2016

Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Contemporary Romance


imageFrom 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…


Cori 5 Stars

I loved it! Loved it! Elle Kennedy meet ripped my heart out with this one then handed back to me all mended at the of the story. Midnight Revenge is an action packed, gritty and emotional smoking hot romantic suspense. D’s story tugged at my heartstrings. He seemed cold and emotionless but the more I discovered about him while reading his story the more I loved him.

“For once in your life, can’t you let someone in?”
He began to laugh. Low, humorless laughter that brought a chill to the already cold cell. “You think if you know what happened to me you’ll magically be able to figure me out? Fix me? Baby, nobody can fix me. I’m broken beyond repair.”

Midnight Revenge is part of Elle Kennedy’s Killer Instincts Series, but it can be read as a standalone. I recommend the entire series though. It’s full of hot alpha males and likable heroines the reader can root for. If you haven’t read this series yet go grab them and settle in for a good binge read. This series is on my list of favorite romantic suspenses and one I recommend for all romantic suspense lovers. Elle Kennedy knows how to weave a great love story.
