Review - Midnight Revenge by Elle Kennedy

Title: Midnight Revenge 
Series: Killer Instincts #7
Author: Elle Kennedy
Release Date: February 2, 2016

From the USA Today bestselling author of Midnight Captive, the latest Killer Instincts novel is “off-the-charts-hot”* romantic suspense that takes readers into the heart of an enigmatic mercenary...

Out of all the stone-cold mercenaries in Jim Morgan's black ops organization, Derek “D” Pratt is the most intimidating. He is tight-lipped and covered in tattoos, and even the other guys on his team are afraid to ask him about his past. D’s been off the grid for years, but after his teammate Sullivan is mistakenly captured in his place, D is forced to come out of hiding and face his demons.

When D lands in Mexico, he’s ready to risk everything to save his friend. To complicate matters, Sofia Amaro, a feisty doctor whom D had a one-night stand with months ago, has tracked him down. And in an instant she’s unintentionally caught up in his life-threatening rescue mission.

Now D must extract not one but two people from the most violent world he's ever encountered. And one of them is carrying his child...

Oh D! You leave me breathless! Midnight Revenge is hardcore suspense, full of moments that leave you on edge and breathless! 

Derek Pratt is one of Jim Morgan’s mercenaries. He is cold and unfeeling, and does the job at hand, no questions or feelings for anyone around him. When it’s time for him to rescue one of their own who has been captured after a case of mistaken identity, D goes in rogue. He can handle it since he’s the one they want. That is, until his world is thrown for a loop! 

Dungeons. Islands in Mexico. Helicopters. Sex trafficking-drug lords. Black ops. The jungle. Fast Boats. A baby… Morgan and his men are what Midnight Revenge is all about. An edge of your seat thriller with heart stopping action and breathless encounters which lead you to believe D does have feelings… and a heart. 

The team is devious in getting what they want and they want to know what’s up with Derek so send Sofia and Ash to follow him. Little do they know, Liam is already there... Before it’s all over the sex between Sofia and Derek is setting the pages on FIRE and I was turning them fast and furiously to find out what was going to happen next. 

Where will they end up? Will they survive? Grab Midnight Revenge by Elle Kennedy to find out all the dark and dirty details regarding D Pratt!!

Blindsided by the feels….

I know that mercenaries, by nature, are probably not the warmest guys you are going to meet. They aren’t the type to spill their emotions over a cold beer or even twelve. Derek “D” Pratt, however, takes stone-cold to a whole new level. I honestly wasn’t sure who could make him open up, if anyone could, but Dr. Sofia Amaro might be up for the job. 

This series has managed to bring something new to the table in every outing and this one is no exception. This is not a watered down version of what evil could lurk in the world but an eyes-wide-open look at the horrible things, the horrible people that prey on the innocent. Sex trafficking, the drug trade, and kidnappings are in a normal day’s work for some. Just knowing that what is in these pages is a representation of what really goes on, well, it’s almost too real, isn’t it?

Thank goodness others are tasked with stopping it. Though that comes with a price…

When good and evil collide the explosion is felt by the whole team and none more so than “D”. A loner, he doesn’t know what to do with true friendship and real love so he does without. Using silence and aloofness, he holds everyone at arm’s length until they won’t let him shut them out any more…

Sofia is the perfect person to get in his face and make him hear some home truths. She knows exactly where he is coming from and, though they had very different pasts, once they start to open up to each other, it’s easy to see how and why they click. The going isn’t easy, it’s really hard and very painful—heartbreaking at times—but their roller coaster was everything I could have hoped for. When Derek allows himself to take down his barriers and let Sofia in… Okay, some tissues may or may not have been needed.

“Using the word adorable in relation to this man hadn’t seemed possible, but right now, it was the only one to describe him. Adorable and awkward…”

To live or die is a question that is up for debate in each minute so to say their opportunity to sort things out is a baptism of fire is an understatement… Emotional, gritty, yet with moments of humor and sexual chemistry, this story is my new series favourite. I may have shed a few tears along but that’s okay… They were worth it!

An epilogue that broke my heart (again), I can’t wait for Liam and Sully’s story to continue…
