She’s got a broken heart...
and a fully loaded arsenal....
Ex–army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but eighteen years ago in Paris, he was part of a black ops unit whose mission was to hunt down a rogue operative. In order to trap the criminal, Jim seduced Noelle, the man’s daughter—a ruthless act that cost him the love of his life and turned her into a mortal enemy. Now he can’t trust her, but he still desires her. He also needs her help....
Older, wiser, and unwilling to play the fool again, Noelle runs a group of highly skilled assassins. And she’s just been offered the hit of the century: Eliminate Jim Morgan. History gives them no reason to trust each other, but with their lives in jeopardy at the hands of a common enemy, the lines between love and hate are soon blurred. Now Noelle and Jim must face the past if they want to have a future—let alone a future together.
Going into Midnight Action I was a little apprehensive...it was book 5 in a series.. and I hadn't read the other 4 books! This is not something I would normally do.. but Jessica over at Penguin had so much enthusiasm in her email about this book, I really couldn't NOT read it. I don't know how much Noelle and Morgan are featured in previous books, but I truly believe this one can be read as a stand alone (AND SHOULD BE READ). Now if you want to read the whole kit and caboodle feel free and I can say with utmost certainty they are probably all worth the read. Midnight Action has many intricate pieces all woven together so perfectly to create this amazing and heart pounding tale. I was dying to find out why these previous sweethearts were now tone cold enemies! How do you get from love to hate? And what happens when you have 19 years to let that hate fester? SOOO MUCH GOODNESS!! There is a lot going on in Midnight Action so I beg you to pay close attention to you don't miss out on anything! And just a tiny bit of info before I go and leave you to hopefully read Midnight Action for yourself.. there is some SLIGHT M/M in Midnight Action ( again I don't know if this is a common theme in the series) but it's not in your face and was done really well.. so even if it's not your thing (it's not mine) I still believe you would really enjoy this story.
