With the acclaimed Midnight Breed series, New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian has written thrilling novels of electrifying romance and heart-pounding suspense - books in which humans and vampires live tenuously side by side. In Crave the Night, Adrian brings the Breed and its world to the brink of war, where even the deepest passion can shatter into violence.
Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order - an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires - Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan's hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire - a woman of wealth and high social standing who has long been promised to another Breed male, and who may also prove to be the key to rooting out Nathan's elusive quarry.
Jordana lives a life of glittering privilege as a member of a prominent Breed family in Boston. Surrounded by fine things and fawning admirers, Jordana wants for nothing - until she crosses paths with a dark, intense warrior from the Order and finds herself swept into an impulsive, sizzling kiss that neither of them will forget. As much as she tries to deny her deep feelings for Nathan, Jordana cannot resist the craving to be near him, to break through his forbidding walls and see the man he truly is. But getting close to Nathan will thrust Jordana into a treacherous new world, forcing her to risk all she has and all she knows about herself and her past. And loving this seductive man could be the most dangerous temptation of all.

Many say I am easily entertained because I have given many 5star ratings, but I KNOW what I like, have my favorites, and choose accordingly.
Loving how series moved to future generation. Awesome new bad guy twist. Series still great!
I did not like the narration. The portrayal of the male voices was pretty bad. I had forgotten how much Adrian has deviated from books 1 - 10, even though I did read the 11th. This was all just too disjointed. Wish I hadn't bothered.
Not sure. I was not crazy about the audio narrator, as too monotone. The story has a few twists and turns, as well as a relationship that required more emotion in the narration. She made it more boring than exciting.
The complexity between the evolution of the mating between Nathan and Jordanna. Also, love Jordanna's story.
Monotone, boring, sleepy.
I would not try to make a movie out of this as Hollywood would likely ruin it!
Great story, very hot. I liked the print edition way better. A different audio narrator would have improved the audio, yet great story!
I'm Not Addicted to Audiobooks! I can quit as soon as I finish listening to one more chapter. (Really!)
I can't believe I waited so long to listen to this book....it was AWESOME!
For months, I tried to listening to this book, but could not make it past 10 to 15 minutes. I'm not sure if it was me or the narrating?
So, this past weekend, I decided I was either going to listen to the book or delete it off my device. I put my headphones on, turned on the book and started cleaning the house. WOW, I could NOT turn it off! I actually finished the book in two days!
This story is now one of my FAVORITES in the "Midnight Breed" series.
Hillary does a great job or narrating the story. (I read the other books in the series so I think it took me longer to get used to this one being narrated.)
I absolutely recommend listening to this book especially if you've read the others in the series.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Nathan's a Gen 1 Breed Male, he's very Alpha and since his kiss in book 11 with the beautiful, but out of his reach, Jordana he can't seem to get it out of his mind - she, and that passion-filed kiss, haunts him and when he meets her again..... well their intense sizzling chemistry sends the needle right off the charts. However, Jordana is with someone else, someone her Father has chosen for her and, for some pressing reason, he is determined they blood bond before her next birthday but Nathan's intense pull on her can't be denied any longer...... but will the unsocial, cold and life-hardened Warrior finally let her in?
For the most part this book is about their instant relationship, the hurdles and pitfalls that's put in the way of them ever getting the HEA ending but then it turns and throws in twists and surprises as well as a long lost tragic love story. There's a complex romance, a few sex scenes and finally new facts are discovered about the Atlantians who are the Breeds unknown enemies and this may direct the overall base storyline. But there was no sweet build-up to their relationship... just a wham, bang, thank you Mam now you're mine of a claiming and it wasn't until Nathan could finally reveal, and let go of his tortuous past, that left room for his long held back emotions.
Dual POV's with inner dialogue a little sleepily done by HH but when the characters spoke there was passion, emotion and love so there were parts that dragged and parts that rocked.
Worth a credit? For fans of the Midnight Breeds then this is another essential piece of the puzzle that makes up a very good paranormal series. Yes, there's been better and more drama filled exciting books in the series, but this also has it's place in the series too which makes it a creditworthy listen.
Well I love this series but I hate to say it but this book I think fell very short. It was mostly about the to main characters getting together and getting it on if you know what I mean. There was not much of a dramatic story no " meat" to the story. The old characters are barley in it. I miss were there was an actual great story line. I don't know if I'll continue with these stories and I hate that because I've always looked forward to these stories!
There was only a couple beheadings. The rest of the book was talking and sex. Don't get me wrong I like sex but enough is enough. where is the action, throat ripping vampire action???
