Publisher's Summary

Ex-army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but 18 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.

This story was quite as good!

I wasn’t able to get into this book, as much as the others, in the series. The story just wasn’t as intense. There are a lot of flashbacks and, although I’ve wanted to know the details of this couple’s history, it detracts from the current storyline.

You know, The biggest issue I had with this book is that I did not buy their relationship; the author wasn’t able to sell it to me.

REACTION TO OTHER REVIEW......
One reviewer really went off about the Hero having sex with the Heroine before she turned 18. “He was having sex with a child!” Overreact much?
First off, the Heroine is a couple of weeks from 18.
Second, the Hero was only 21, himself. If he were 30, it would have bothered me.
Third, I know all states are the same but only 11 states in the US have the age of consent at 18. The other 41 states have the age of consent at 16 or 17; the biggest percentage being 16.
So therefore, in 79% of the US, the Sexual relationship between the Hero and Heroine is completely legal.
Fourth, I was stunned that this reviewer went on and on about their sexual relationship, in regards to their age, and she didn’t make a single comment about how the Step Father rapes the Heroine, on a regular basis(and he’s a cop!) WTF? Seriously?
My rant is over, although this wasn’t my favorite, in this series, I moving on to the next book, now!

This book was fan waving hot and sexy

This is more like both of Kane & Abby’s stories, so filled with sexually charged emotions, hot sex and very tender moments. This brought a lot of answers to light that had been hinted at before. There was tons of actions, some very unexpected. You can’t miss this book. Great writing by Ms Kennedy & great narration by Ms Ryan. Perfect book.

One of my all-time favorite books narrated beautifully! 5 Stars!

I loved Jim and Noelle’s story. It’s always been one of my favorites. The passionate hatred they share for each other is revealed to be a passionate love buried beneath a crippling, heartbreaking pain. Once the outer shell of the pain starts to crack, the love shines through. The story along the way is sometimes sad and sometimes laugh out loud funny. The glass in Jim’s hair cracks me up every time.
I enjoyed the stories brewing among the other members of the team. Elle does such a great job with her characters and storylines.
The narrator did a phenomenal job! She really became the characters. I had to remind myself that this was ONE PERSON doing the different voices. Truly outstanding. Allyson, if you see this... thank you so much for bringing these characters to life for all of us to enjoy.
I just finished this book. Now I’m going to start it over and listen to it again. :)

Really Morgan

In the first 4 books, Jim Morgan was portrayed as an ex-military hero with integrity and honor. He hated Noelle, queen of assassins (no reason given) yet grudgingly worked with her "team" when necessary to save lives.

However in Midnight Action, when Jim and Noelle's back story was finally explained, I lost all respect for the so-called hero. Spoiler alert: Jim is still carrying a grudge from almost 20 years ago, when he befriended the then 17 year old Noelle to get information. Really Morgan? He fucked an underage girl with no regrets; what an asshole!

The rest of the plot was engrossing and suspenseful, but I was too distracted by the Jim & Noelle fiasco to enjoy the ending. I was disappointed that the smart, assertive Noelle went crawling back to that selfish jerk Morgan. In my world, adult male heroes do not have sex with children.
