Midnight Target (Killer Instincts #8) by Elle Kennedy

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.

4 Last Action Pack Stars
Midnight Target is a standalone and is part of the Killer Instinct series. You really can read these books out of order. I read the last three and I will go back and read the others.

These are action based, meaty books with alpha Heroes and sometimes (most of the time) alpha Heroines too. Think strong, independent women!

Midnight Target is the last book in the series, so it kind of ties out the ENTIRE series. There are a lot of characters in the book, but it only makes you want to go back and read the other books. This is Ash and Cate’s story with a side story of Liam and Sully! YAY for MM reads.

If MM isn’t your cuppa, don’t worry, it’s not fully mine either. I can read MM reads, but it’s not my first pick. I can say that even though I’m not a mega fan of MM reads, I enjoyed Liam and Sully’s story a lot. Maybe a tad (just a little bit) more than Ash and Cate’s story. **GASP**

Ash has always been attracted to Cate, but he’s Jim’s daughter, a man he respects, therefore Ash will not touch Cate. Cate has always had a crushed on Ash, but after several advances on her part, nothing will make Ash take that leap into … well her bed.

The book begins with a bam (like most of the books in the series) and Cate is in a lot of trouble. She needs her Daddy, Jim, to bail her out. Jim enlist the guys and the crazy adventure begins!

I have to say this story was EPIC. A few times I cringed and bugged my eyes out. It’s graphic and Elle Kennedy knows how to set up a story. You really do a get a feel of the characters motivations, passion and drive.  And the villain is SUPER evil. This is something I like too.

The thing I really enjoyed most about this book is the love the characters have for each other. I’m talking about the bros. All the characters are willing to support, help and throw themselves in harm’s way to protect their loved ones. It’s touching.

The story is intense, the characters are wonderful and Midnight Target was a good last book to the series. If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.
