137) Taken by Midnight by Lara Adrian

The Blurb -

In the frozen Alaskan wilderness, former state trooper Jenna Darrow survives an unspeakable breach of body and soul. But with her narrow escape comes an even greater challenge. For strange changes are taking place within her, as she struggles to understand—and control—a new hunger. To do so, she will seek shelter in the Boston compound of the Order, an ancient race of vampire warriors whose very existence is shrouded in mystery. Perhaps the most mysterious of them all is Brock, a brooding, dark-eyed alpha male whose hands hold the power to comfort, heal . . . and arouse.

As she recovers under Brock’s care, Jenna finds herself drawn to the Order’s mission: to stop a ruthless enemy and its army of assassins from subjecting Earth to a reign of terror. Yet in spite of their resolve, a purely physical relationship without strings soon binds Brock and Jenna together with a desire fiercer than life and stronger than death itself—until a secret from Brock’s past and Jenna’s own mortality challenges their forbidden love to the ultimate trial by fire.

My Thoughts -

The Breed series has come a long way and Taken by Midnight shows that there is still a long way to go. Things get more interesting, deeper and exciting in this new installment. A far-fetched but super angle is explored and questions are left unanswered this time around. Meanwhile the typical style and sequence of events stays the same. Breed meets girl, girl and Breed fall in love. All the story around it is the on-going plot I have come to know and enjoy.

However this series does seem to be going further than I expected. Sure there is a lot more possibilities but how far will this go? I really want to know what the enemy is up to. I finally want to see the Breed get rid of the baddie and for everyone to live happy ever after. Will this ever happen? I don't know but I am definitely going to enjoy the ride till the last stop.

If you like J.R. Ward and Sherrilyn Kenyon then you have to try this series. There are some similarities but this series also has some new fresh twists and turns. Original and special this series is a lovely mix of Urban Paranormal Fantasy and romance. With not too much emphasis on the romance. Well worth checking out!

I really like this series and thought the relationship between Brock and Jenna was sweet. It does feel like it needs a kick in the butt where the plot is concerned but I thought what was happening with Jenna was different and I liked it. Great review.
