"Her job is to stay hidden.
Too bad he can’t take his eyes off her.
Soldier-for-hire Ethan Hayes is the youngest member of an elite mercenary team. While he may be affectionately nicknamed the rookie, the skills Ethan honed as a Marine make him seriously dangerous. But when a sudden distress call puts him in close quarters with a rival, he finds more than his field skills being put to the test.
Juliet Mason stands out as the master thief in a covert group of assassins and spies. Her latest mission is personal—and it’s gone horribly wrong. Juliet may prefer to work alone, but when the rookie comes to her aid in snowy Eastern Europe, she can’t deny they make a good team. But even up against a powerful enemy, their most challenging task yet may be fighting the passion between them..."
My Thoughts:This series owns me! Gosh I cannot get over how much I loved Ethan and Juliet. Those two were dynamite together and this book rocked. This one was a bit different from the others and I loved the change of pace.
Juliet is an awesome heroine. She is tough as nails and guarded and she takes no prisoners. She is a kickass assassin and naturally I adored her for it. That girl has titanium walls up, but once Ethan decided he wants to take them down nothing will stop him. Ethan was fantastic too and I fell hard for him. He is such a sweetheart, but he is also a badass. Ethan is a good guy with a dangerous and alpha streak and I was gone for him. He and Juliet together made a great duo and their banter was some of my favorite of the series.
As always, the secondary characters were awesome. Sully and Liam remain my favorites and I cannot get enough of those two. Then there is Jim and Noelle. I don’t even know what to make of those two, but their book is going to be tense. That’s all I know.
What I liked about this one was that the suspense aspect was a bit different from the other books. This time around we delve into the corrupt world of politics and it made for some crazy action. There is action and danger and that makes it so hard to put this book down.
Midnight Pursuits is another fantastic read in the Killer Instincts series. This series is downright addictive and I don’t know why I didn’t dive into this series fully sooner.
