Review: Midnight Action by Elle Kennedy

She’s got a broken heart... and a fully loaded arsenal.... Ex–army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but eighteen 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.

Midnight Action by Elle Kennedy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We’ve been teased since the beginning of this series with Jim Morgan and Noelle’s hatred for each other but have never had the full story as to why. We finally get that and more.

The book toggles between current day and the past of when Jim and Noelle first met and we see who betrayed who first and how that had far reaching consequences. We defiantly get to see different sides of these two. Getting to know Noelle before she become the hard hearted assassin was both interesting and heartbreaking. We are shown that she defiantly had reason to become what she did and Jim made many mistakes and his remorse over those mistakes made him become a surly man.

One of the catalysts of what happened between them 19 years ago comes front and center and makes these two have to face their past which results in lots of surprises and plenty of angry sex. These two are combustible whenever they are in the same room and Noelle defiantly isn’t so forgiving of Jim even though as the book progresses we see a huge changes in him.

As far as the other mercenaries and assassins boy the author entered in a surprising plot twist with two of the mercenaries and introduces us some new characters who I am sure will be getting their own stories in the future.

Sometimes when you’ve been waiting for a certain book for so long the potential to be disappointed is certainly a possibility. I am happy to say I loved Jim and Noelle’s story , it was so worth the wait.
