“This book embodied raw sexual chemistry and then took it up a few notches.  Be careful when handling it, because you might get scorched!” ~ Under the Covers

I felt like a little kid opening this book, I was so excited.  Don’t you love it when there’s that one couple you’ve been wanting to see together and then it’s finally that time.  I might’ve done a happy dance when I read the blurb for this book!  I’ve waiting, literally, since book one!  Starving for any second of interactions between Noelle and Jim.  Trying to put out of my mind the fact that she was playing around with someone else.  These two just HAD to happen.  But then there’s the nervous side of me that was sooooo worried about my expectations.  Too high?  Would it disappoint me?

MIDNIGHT ACTION is my favorite book in this series to date and it exceeded all my expectations!  It delivered on everything I knew was there and everything I had no clue could be.  What an incredibly deep and emotional book.  Just as it’s action packed, with an intriguing storyline that will keep you on your toes, this book was a heart breaking emotional journey through Noelle and Jim’s past.  Neither one of those stories was easy.  And the author did an amazing job at telling the story in flashbacks that blended perfectly with the current plot.

utc-top-pickDid I mention how much chemistry Noelle and Jim have always had?  I think if they are in the room together, their sparks would burn you.  But their history has brought them to a place of hate.  And that hate runs deep. And is there ever anything better than straight up, angry, hateful f*cking? Gosh I feel like I need a cigarette (or two) after that….and I don’t smoke!  This book embodied raw sexual chemistry and then took it up a few notches.  Be careful when handling it, because you might get scorched!

I know I always focus on the alpha male, and yes Jim Morgan is THAT alpha male you want.  But I think more impressive for me was Noelle.  I’ve always loved her character because she’s kick ass and ruthless.  Don’t mess with her because she may not have a heart left.  And I was moved by her story.  She’s gone through so much betrayal in her life that I understand where she’s been coming from.  And I’m happy that she’s gotten her HEA.

With the side stories in this book, I can say I’m so excited for two of them!  Liam&Sully (yes, this book had some minor m/m) and Sean&Bailey.  I’m especially anxious for Sean & Bailey and I know it’s next.  I think Sean better watch his balls from now!

If you are looking for an edge of your seat romantic suspense series to read, but you also wants lots of steam, then this is it for you.  The Killer Instincts series is all about alpha males, kick ass women and the adrenaline filled lives they lead.
