“Like a good action movie with guns, car wrecks, kidnappings topped with smoking hot sex.”

I have a confession to make. When I read this series, I skipped this book. Not sure how it happened but when I went to look I was behind and then I just kept moving forward. So, obviously, I had to go back and see what happened in this one.
MIDNIGHT PURSUITS features Ethan, who was sort of “the kid”. He’s the youngest member of Morgan’s team, and the newest hire. He’s also …. a sweet, good guy! You know how I’m always wanting a good asshole hero (Morgan, anyone?) but there’s something to be said for when that otherwise sweet and calm hero that’s genuinely a good guy can show his alpha streak. And this book gave me just that. I loved that!
Juliet Mason, one of Noelle’s assassins, finds herself seeking revenge after her brother is killed and ends up in trouble herself and in need of help. With most of the other girls out of reach, Ethan gets the call for help and jumps on it right away. Juliet is that typical tough heroine with enough of a soft side. Out of the two I liked Ethan more than Juliet, but I think they were otherwise really good together. I enjoyed how he kept her off balance not giving her what she wanted, when she thought she was the one holding all the cards. Another thing I enjoyed was the age difference, Ethan is younger than Juliet and while normally it’s not something I like that much, I think it worked really well in this book. It was playful and sexy.
The story keeps a good steady pace and it’s packed with action and intrigue. While some things are a bit over the top, that is the nature of this series. Like a good action movie with guns, car wrecks, kidnappings topped with smoking hot sex. If you haven’t read this series yet, then I definitely encourage you to give it a try.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
