“Elle Kennedy penned another action packed and heart pounding romantic suspense story!” ~Under the Covers
I’m going to be totally honest here. I was kind of upset that this book wasn’t about Jim and Noelle. Yeah, I know, they probably will be saved for last but I WANTED THEM NOW!!! OK that being said, I started reading MIDNIGHT ALIAS with an open mind and no expectations, since Luke hadn’t been a big presence in the previous book.
Elle Kennedy penned another action packed and heart pounding romantic suspense story! I’m not sure what it is about strip club suspense themes, like Stripped by Tori St. Claire, Riding on Instinct by Jaci Burton or even Delicious by Shayla Black. When done correctly, they end up being very appealing to me. And Elle Kennedy wove the perfect storyline to that old theme.
Olivia Taylor has been stripping to get extra cash and help her mom with her cancer bills and go to college. One night a customer attacks her in the parking lot and she ends up killing him in self defense. Club owner and drug scum, Vince, decides to cover it up and get rid of the body. Ensuring that now Olivia owes him and would finally be his.
Meanwhile, Luke Dubois, sexy cajun and ex Navy, along with Jim’s team are looking for a missing DEA agent that had gone undercover at the same club and could use Olivia’s help to find where he is.
This book had a bit of everything, drugs, deaths, corrupt agents and a whole lot of sexy! Olivia and Luke definitely had sparks and chemistry from the very beginning. I think the author did a great job at spacing out how they got together and the fact that Olivia didn’t just jump into bed with him. But he did put the moves on early on. Yeah, Luke is sexy.
We also get a side story that started brewing in the first book as well. Trevor and Isabelle. They make some great progress and a few steps back in this book and I’m very excited that their story is next!
