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.

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.
