Overview

Her job is to stay hidden.
Too bad he can’t take his eyes off her.

Soldier-for-hire Ethan Hayes is the youngest member of an elite mercenary team. While he may be affectionately nicknamed the rookie, the skills Ethan honed as a Marine make him seriously dangerous. But when a sudden distress call puts him in close quarters with a rival, he finds more than his field skills being put to the test.

Juliet Mason stands out as the master thief in a covert group of assassins and spies. Her latest mission is personal—and it’s gone horribly wrong. Juliet may prefer to work alone, but when the rookie comes to her aid in snowy Eastern Europe, she can’t deny they make a good team. But even up against a powerful enemy, their most challenging task yet may be fighting the passion between them....

Publishers Weekly
02/17/2014
Kennedy’s fourth Killer Instincts romantic thriller (after Midnight Games) is a gripping and pulse-pounding tale. Juliet Mason, a professional thief turned contract killer, gets in deep trouble while on a personal mission seeking out her brother’s killer in Belarus. Her call for help is answered by Ethan Hayes, a very sexy, gentlemanly mercenary. He soon finds himself at odds with the impulsive Juliet over both the mission and their sexual attraction. To Juliet, it’s just sex and will end when the mission is over; to Ethan it’s the beginning of a relationship. The mission grows in complexity, and Ethan and Juliet get more in sync, both in the field and in the bedroom. Secondary characters add to the suspense and charm of the story, and series fans will be surprised by some twists in the ongoing drama between operatives Noelle and Jim. First-class adventure, passionate desire, and fierce characters make this a very satisfying page-turner. (Apr.)

    Elle Kennedy brings readers the fourth book in her Killer Instin

    Elle Kennedy brings readers the fourth book in her Killer Instincts series, Midnight Pursuits. This is an action packed story with moments of levity and some serious romance. The intense chemistry between the hero and heroine is undeniable. Kennedy knows when to ramp up the romance and when to let action take the center stage. Readers who are fans of the series will love the lead in to the next book and new readers to the series will fall in love with the great secondary cast, as well as the main couple. A great addition to the series.

    What I liked:

    I haven't been reading romantic suspense for very long, but the more I read it, the more I like it. Elle Kennedy certainly knows her way around the genre and makes each scene in her books action packed and full of sizzle, not just in the bedroom. This is one of those books that makes your heart rate speed up, it's just that intense. From the situations their jobs create to the passionate response they have to each other, Ehtan and Juliet provide a great deal of emotion for the reader. Midnight Pursuits is a real nail biter in more ways than one and Kennedy does a wonderful job with it.

    The main couple in this one provides a classic example of the law of opposites attracting, but they also have some things in common that the reader may not see at first glance. Ethan is the rookie on a team of mercenaries that can really kick some butt, but he isn't low man on the totem pole. He is a very capable and extreme. He is a former Marine and can hang with the best of them. His passion for the job is fierce and he loves the same way. Juliet could be characterized as the ice queen. She's an assassin and she loves her job. She doesn't let people get close and she isn't looking for romance. These two make quite a pair. The passion between them borders on a ferocity of sorts. It's almost animalistic. I think the thing that is so similar about them is that deep seeded need for adrenaline in every thing the do. I loved them sepately but together they were a force to be reckoned with.

    I have not read the previous books in this series, but after reading this one, it's a given that I will go back and pick up the others. One of the things that made this book such an enjoyable read, were the great secondary characters, many of which have their own stories told in previous books and several with stories yet to tell. This book can easily be read as a stand alone, but I think reading them together probably provides the reader with a much more emotional connection to the group. I liked the underlying tension that existed between the leaders of both groups and it appears that their story is up next. I think each character had a place in this book and I definitely want to know more about each one and these amazing two groups with such strong men and women.

    What I didn't like:

    The main couple is drawn to each so strongly even from their first meeting that reader can easily see that they will end up together, there is no doubt of that, but things heated up a lot faster than I expected. I wanted a little more angst and build up to those all important three little words. 

    Bottom Line:

    If you are looking for a read that will almost literally knock your socks off, this is it. Midnight Pursuits is that book that will keep you up at night and make you think about it when you are supposed to be working. It's that book that has just as intense love scenes as it does action scenes.

    Like an action movie check your brain at the door and kick back

    Like an action movie check your brain at the door and kick back and enjoy.  I love this series. It is total escapist fun.  Ethan may be young but he has skills.  He has been known to let folks underestimate him because of his youth, good manners and all around good guy image.  The one person he doesn’t want to underestimate him is tough as nails Juliet. When Juliet calls for help Ethan is there as back up and oh so much more. Kick back with the popcorn and enjoy.

    You will be turning pages faster than you can say "Killer Instincts". Well written with fierce characters and a plot with many twists and turns. A definite keeper! Emotional and compelling as well as gripping from beginning to end. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

    No sample

    I love Elle Kennedy but unfortunately I only liked two books from this particular series. Thus I decided to try the sample first. However, the sample did not load. Just comes up with an error message. Eight dollars is too much for me to spend without a sample. Bummer.

    I liked this book a lot. I liked a couple of the earlier books in this series but not all of them. This is a good one. 
    Very likable characters, great chemistry, very good storyline, really liked it. Not sure whether I'm looking forward 
    to Jim & Noelle's story but definitely will read it.

    This thrilling action adventure keeps readers on the edge of their seat.  I found this a mesmerizing and thrilling action adventure romance with a sexy alpha hunk and a tough as nails heroine that I couldn’t put down once I started reading it.  The action and the characters are believable and intriguing and I certainly am looking forward to reading more about these characters with killer instincts.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3 1/2 REVIEW:  The best way to explain Ethan &

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3 1/2
    REVIEW: 
    The best way to explain Ethan & Juliet is like a tornado meeting a hurricane. While each can be very destructive independently together they will be unstoppable. But somewhere along the way the storms calm and all that is left is each other. 
    This was a fast pace book. There was no waiting for the action to start. I will say that I think my one of my favorite parts is Ethan’s rules on dating (hehe) Juliet never expected that :D. 
    If you are a fan of Elle’s Killer Instinct series you will love Ethan & Juliet’s story. Oh and Jack gives us a bit of a surprise at the end of this book (sneaky guy :) ). Looking forward to the next book in this series. 

    Disclaimer: 
    I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley & PENGUIN GROUP Berkley, NAL / Signet Romance, DAW in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
