My least favorite book in the series. I could not stand Lola and thought Tim deserved better. Do wonder how Kee, Connie and Lola made it through any psych evals to get into SOAR..

Lola LaRue, Chief Warrant Officer of the U.S. Army's secret helicopter regiment, is a natural at everything except relationships. She's a professional in the air but she screws up every time she touches the ground.
Sergeant "Crazy" Tim Maloney is a goner the moment he first sees LaRue on a mission to deliver a Delta Force team into the Iranian Desert. He's always been a 'love 'em and leave 'em' kind of guy, but all that changes when Lola's in danger. Now with the stakes higher than ever, they must find a way to eliminate a threat that could destroy more than just their future.
I have enjoyed this series by M.L. Buchman immensely. Buchman manages to create some pretty good romance in the most unusual of circumstances. I mean, where else or who else would want to find love—not just sexual attraction—out in the middle eastern desert, under less than favorable conditions, while working twelve, sometimes sixteen hour shifts?
Doesn’t sound very attractive does it?
Well Buchman manages to go beyond the regular story of boy meets girl and together they fall in love. His stories are always engaging, descriptive, and on par for pure action. Take Over at Midnight was no different. At as a bonus, at the end there was a nice addition into just what inspired the author to develop this piece of romantic fiction.
Sometimes the writing was a bit off to me, but it was more so on a character base, which is why I took it down a star. I would have loved to given it five, but for some reason Lola really just didn’t do it for me in this book, and came off as a bit self-centered at times. I know we don’t always want to have perfect characters in books, but for Lola, I almost didn’t like her.
Even so, I adored this couple falling for one another. I would have liked to see them both work a bit harder at showing the falling in love, but I was well beyond pleased with the action and suspense in this read. Great job. Four out of five stars and hearty recommendation for a weekend read.
