"From the New York Times bestselling author of The Score and Midnight Revenge...

Four years ago, Cate’s entire life changed when she discovered she was the daughter of a supersoldier. But Jim Morgan’s overprotectiveness has pushed her away. These days, she’s working as a freelance photographer and living the dangerous life Jim never wanted for her.

When Cate snaps a photo linking a corrupt South American politician with the leader of a notorious drug cartel, her mercenary father leads a team to rescue her—only to get shot and critically wounded in the process.

As Morgan’s operatives rally together on a revenge mission, they’re faced with new alliances and old heartaches. Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton, the man who broke her heart two years ago, while Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port resurface after years apart to finally try to deal with everything they’d left unsaid.

Soon it’s all-out war between the cartel and the mercenaries—with two couples caught in the middle of the blood feud. Love and redemption are within their reach...but first they have to make it home alive."

My Thoughts:

Midnight Target was one of my most anticipated reads of 2017 and this book met every single one of my expectations. I absolutely loved this book and it is one of my favorites of the series. This book delivered everything I have come to love about this series.

Cate and Ash had fantastic chemistry and I adored them together. Cate has become such a formidable force and I adored her. She is strong and feisty and takes no crap from anyone. And Ash is just sex on a stick. He is so easy to fall for and I loved him. These two together were incredible and I loved their dynamic.

But let’s be honest here… Sully and Liam are the ones who stole the show. Their story has been building for what feels like forever and it was so wonderful to see it all finally come to a head. I absolutely adore those two and they ripped my heart to shreds. The tension between them is ridiculous and I just love them. These two have been my favorites for a while and I was so glad to finally see their story come to a close. It broke my heart in the process but it was wonderful.

Midnight Target was great in that it brought the whole gang back together. Almost everyone makes an appearance and I loved catching up with everyone. I have loved this series and I loved seeing everyone again. Elle Kennedy has created such a great cast of characters and I am so sad to have to say goodbye.

As always, the suspense delivered with Midnight Target. There was action and drama and fighting and risks and I ate it all up. The stakes are as high as ever and she did not hold back with this one. I always love how Elle balances the suspense with romance because she does it perfectly.

Midnight Target was a fantastic read and I loved every single second of it. This is a series I know I will read again and again.
