An undercover DEA agent has gone off the radar. Suspecting an internal mole, the government needs Luke Dubois and his elite team of operatives to recover their man, and the New Orleans native thinks he's found his way inside the dark underbelly of Manhattan: Olivia Taylor, the girlfriend of a mob boss and the sexiest woman he's ever laid eyes on. His new mission objective? Get past Olivia's defenses and convince her to take a chance - on him.
All Olivia wanted was to finish law school and live a normal life, but that dream was shattered when one dangerous night put her deeply in a mobster's debt. Now Luke and his team will help her escape - in exchange for intel on the missing agent. But Olivia doesn't anticipate her intense attraction to the reckless Louisiana charmer or that she'll be forced to risk everything - including her heart.

Great Books Don't Promote Violence
I loved the strong men in Midnight Alias, a group of special operators who used their deadly skills to rescue and protect women rather than bully and dominate.
I found the 1st book in this series well-written but a little too dark & depressing due to the horrific subject of human trafficking. While this 2nd book contained some graphic violence, Luke and the rest of his team were competent, caring and sometimes humorous.
I also liked how the female characters were portrayed as smart and assertive, not just victims waiting for a man to save them. The plot was engrossing and suspenseful, with some romance and well developed, mature characters.
Not sure why Luke was the subject of this next installment. For me he was one of the least interesting characters from the first book. But worst is the love interest Olivia. It was like Elle pulled her out of a hat. The romance fell flat. But I will the interplay for the rest of the cast in this series was good. I'll hang in for book three to see if there is improvement
