Overview

She wears a thousand deadly identities. He sees through them all.



A master of disguise, Isabel Roma spends her life pretending to be other women. Normally, her emotions are reined in tight—but sexy mercenary Trevor Callaghan has a knack for getting under her skin. The elite operative’s quiet strength and raw magnetism affect her in ways she’s never felt before, a distraction that can quickly turn deadly in their dangerous line of work.



After putting his tragic past behind him, Trevor is ready to focus on his future—and he damn well intends for Isabel to be in it.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kennedy’s delicious third Killer Instinct romantic thriller (after Midnight Alias) takes readers on a terrific emotional rollercoaster ride full of relentless action, heated sexual tension, and nail-biting plot twists. Reluctantly, identity-chameleon operative Isabel Roma arrives at the Morgan team’s compound to visit mercenary operative Trevor Callaghan. Alpha and sensitive, widower Trevor knew calling Isabel a coward would get her to explain why she vanished from his life. The attraction steams off the pages, but meaningful discussion is put on hold when the compound is attacked and some of Trevor’s companions are killed. The mercenaries regroup with Isabel’s boss, the ruthless Nicole, as tension—sexual and competitive—rears its head in unexpected twists. Seamlessly weaving the romance into the mission storyline, Trevor and Isabel continue their two-steps-forward, one-step-back relationship, peeling away clothes and emotional barriers until a last-minute mission change offers them a final challenge. Fantastic recurring characters, a deftly drawn plot, and breathless passion will leave the reader begging for more. (Aug.)

    Bad

    ## BAD. Dead fiance is in the book as much as the heroine.

    The Killer Instincts series has had my attention from the beginning because it’s not just about a group of badass military (or ex-military) men out to save the day. There’s also a group of assassin women. Nothing gets me more than a badass heroine and this series usually has that in spades. Add to that the great suspense element, tightly written plot and one of my favorite cast of characters in the romantic suspense world right now and you have a winner.

    We met Isabel Roma a while back and saw her first interactions with Trevor. The attraction was there but the timing wasn’t right. Trevor had lost his wife and was devastated. In a very dark place and ready to give up on life. Isabel was that light that dragged him through that time when they had to work together on a case. Things got a bit more heated between them in the previous book when time had started the heal Trevor.

    In MIDNIGHT GAMES the risks and stakes are higher. Noelle’s team is called in to help find Jim and then bring down who they thought was a human trafficker. They weren’t ready for the surprises and twists this story had prepared for them. I know I wasn’t! There were so many things I didn’t see coming. Just when you think they will be safe everything goes to hell. And just be prepared for some loses. I was kept on my toes the whole time.

    Isabel and Trevor were at a point in their relationship that they were ready to admit their feelings for each other. The relationship development was just getting past those barriers they both built around their hearts and letting the other in emotionally. I really enjoyed them as a couple in and out of the bedroom and the added bonus is they work great together!

    Then there’s the side characters. Without going into the guys….I’ll just say that I need to have Noelle’s book. I wasn’t expecting what was going on with her, meaning who she’s having an affair with. The bit of background info we got was just a teaser. I know her story is going to be an intense roller coaster and I’m ready for it.

    We have been watching as Trevor¿s interest in Isabel has brought

    We have been watching as Trevor’s interest in Isabel has brought him back to life and Isabel’s interest has brought her back from edge of the abyss that life has led her to. One of Nicole chameleons, Isabel excels at undercover work. She hides behind her various personas and Trevor insists on breaking through to the real Isabel. For a woman who is cool under fire this scares her as nothing else does. Trevor wasn't able to save his fiancé how can he risk his heart once more with a woman who purposely puts herself in harms way?
    This is romantic suspense at its best. Action adventure, and romance this series just keeps getting better with each installment. This reads like a modern day episode of Mission Impossible. I can’t wait for the next installment.

    Me

    200 pages down and so far just boring. Not enough action or suspense. I am just about tired of Trev, Izzy and Gina. When does the real story get started? I've had enough romance and am ready for some real a-- kicking to start! Very disappointed at this point.

    NUMBER OF STARS: 3 1/2 REVIEW: Ahh Trevor & Isabel¿s story.

    NUMBER OF STARS: 3 1/2
    REVIEW:
    Ahh Trevor & Isabel’s story.  Words that come to mind are stubborn, determined and a never say die attitude.  This is what you get from these two.  They are both so stubborn and determined but for very different reasons.  
    Trevor is a man on a mission to get Isabel to see that there is way more to them then she thinks there is. And this time Trevor is not going to let her run away from him, no matter what he has to do.  
    Isabel may come off as tough.  She may be one of the best chameleons out there.  But the one thing that scares her to death is Trevor Callaghan. And for a very good reason, Trevor makes her feel.
    This was a good story.  Parts were a little slow.  But overall I enjoyed Trevor & Isabel’s story.  I am looking forward to the next book in this series.  Disclaimer: 
    I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
