"She’s smart, seductive, and in way over her head.
He’s her only way out.
An undercover DEA agent has gone off the radar. Suspecting an internal mole, the government needs Luke Dubois and his elite team of operatives to recover their man, and the New Orleans native thinks he’s found his way inside the dark underbelly of Manhattan: Olivia Taylor, the girlfriend of a mob boss and the sexiest woman he’s ever laid eyes on. His new mission objective? Get past Olivia’s defenses and convince her to take a chance—on him.
All Olivia wanted was to finish law school and live a normal life, but that dream was shattered when one dangerous night put her deeply in a mobster’s debt. Now Luke and his team will help her escape—in exchange for intel on the missing agent. But Olivia doesn’t anticipate her intense attraction to the reckless Louisiana charmer or that she’ll be forced to risk everything—including her heart."
My Thoughts:This series is crazy addictive. I just cannot get enough of these characters and the action. The whole world and dynamic is awesome and I cannot get enough.
Luke and Olivia are both great characters. I love Olivia because of how strong and resilient she is. She doesn’t give up easily and I really admire that. And Luke is just swoooooooon. I absolutely loved him. I loved his sense of humor and I especially loved how he always said what he was thinking.
I’m so glad I finally circled back to read the books in this series I missed. I started this series in the middle, with Midnight Captive, which is very out of character for me. I always read things in order. But I’m actually kinda glad I went about it this way. I’m having fun going back and seeing how some of my favorites were introduced. I squealed at the mere mention of Sean and don’t even get me started on Sully and Liam. Also, if I didn’t already love D from his book, I probably would have hated him, so it’s a good thing I know him already. But that’s what’s great about this series. Elle Kennedy created a wonderful cast of characters and each character brings something important to the story.
Now that I’ve read four books in this series, I can definitely say that I prefer the books with one of the assassins as the heroine. All of the heroines are strong, but I just really love when the heroine is a kickass assassin as well. I like the dynamic it creates between the couple. I’m dying to get to Isabel and Trevor’s story because I know that one is going to be off the charts.
Midnight Alias was another great read in the Killer Instincts series. The romance and the action keeps you flipping pages. This is easily my favorite romantic suspense series.
