Overview

Morton "Jacko" Jackman isn't afraid of anything. He's a former Navy SEAL sniper, and he's been in more firefights than most people have had hot meals. Lauren Dare scares the crap out of him.

Gorgeous, talented and refined, she's the type of woman who could never be interested in a roughneck like him. So he's loved her fiercely in secret, taken her art classes, and kept a watchful but comfortable distance. Until now.

Lauren had finally found a home in Portland, far from her real identity, far from the memories of her mother's death, and outside the reaches of the drugged-out psycho who's already tried to kill her twice. One tiny misstep—a single photograph—has shattered it all. She has no choice but to run again, but this time she'll give herself a proper farewell: one night with Jacko.

Their highly charged emotional encounter changes everything. In Jacko's arms there cannot be fear, there can only be pleasure. Anyone wishing her harm will have to pass through him, and Jacko is a hard man to kill.

    J: This was a rather annoying read. It was too repetitive and there was much more thinking by the characters than actual dialogue. There was very little action and far too much "romance". I found myself waiting for something to happen rather than just the threat. I thought I would want to read another in the series, but then probably not. This one was disappointing.

    Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres and the books syn

    Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres and the books synopsis gave away just enough intrigue to pique my interest. 

    Having not read the previous installments in the series, I did feel a little lost sometimes when the secondary characters interacted with Jacko and Lauren. But I found myself easily drawn into their lives as well as the sexily tattooed arms of Jacko. I swooned at his instinctual drive to protect the woman he loves at all costs.

    I really enjoyed the characters and I thought the storyline would have been more powerful if the dialogue was character driven. There were several instances where I felt there was too much internal dialogue; especially when someone asks a question and then takes several pages to internalize about it before prompting the person to continue or respond to the question posed. It takes away from the scene and I quickly lose interest in the story. I powered through though and I’m glad I did. 

    Overall, I thought the plot was interesting and engaging and I liked that the author laid some groundwork for the next book in the epilogue, not necessarily a cliffhanger, but a nice leeway into the next adventure.

    Loved it!

    Great read. It does seem a little short. Also you really need to have read the other midnight books first. I even had to go back and glance through them again just to refamiliarize myself with all the secondary characters. Until I did that, it kept feeling like I had missed something. Like maybe the beginning of the book was missing. But once I reviewed the other books it all came together for me and I really enjoyed the Lauren and Jacko.

    Midnight Vengeance is book number 4 in author Lisa Marie Rice¿s

    Midnight Vengeance is book number 4 in author Lisa Marie Rice’s Midnight series and admittedly the first in the series I have read. Well, I’m hooked and will be grabbing the first three in the series because this book was fabulous. Pulse-pounding, smoking hot and full of suspense, Midnight Vengeance is a win all around!
    Artist Lauren Dare loves her home, her town, her friends, her artwork, all of it. Unfortunately, she has to leave it all behind. Lauren has been on the run from an extremely dangerous and deadly man for years now and after having her picture taken at her art event last night, she knows her time here is up. She is heartbroken to have to leave her life behind, again, but loves her friends too much to ever put them in danger. And danger is exactly what they will be in if the man looking for her comes here. But she still has one night left here and she decides at the last second to take a chance with the man she has secretly been pining after for months….Jacko. The strong, silent, and dangerously handsome man in her group of friends and the unlikely student in her art class. For one night she could give in and give herself over to the attraction she had been hiding. Hopefully Jacko will give her this last piece of happiness before her life on the run takes over once again…
    Former SEAL Morton “Jacko” Jackman has been through more than a few tough situations in his life. Being a SEAL tended to do that to a person. Now he worked in high-profile security and still nothing seemed to scare him sensless like Lauren Dare did. It seems like whenever he was near her, he turned into a different person and lost all his ability to remain calm, cool, and collected. He loved it though. She was unlike anyone he had ever met and he admired so much about her. He wanted nothing more than to take things to the next level with her but surely there was no way a refined woman like her would want a rough and tumble guy like him. Things have a way of working out though and when he is tasked with taking her home early from one of her art events he is certain of two things… One, something is very wrong and he picked up on it the minute her picture was taken and she turned as pale as a ghost and two, there was no mistaking her intentions when they pulled into her driveway. She wanted him and he would gladly take her…and maybe after he would get to the bottom of what had her scared senseless.
    Lauren never would have thought Jacko would have picked up on her plan to flee…then again she should have known better. Now he just has to convince her to stay and trust that he will keep her safe at any cost. Easier said than done when you’re dealing with a crazed madman. Could Lauren finally have a shot at a normal life and love with Jacko?
    Talk about one hell of a ride! From the very first chapter we are treated to the mystery surrounding Lauren and her past. Once the secret is out, we realized just why she’s been running and why she wants to protect the friends she’s made by fleeing again. Enter Jacko. That man is one hell of a rock and is just who Lauren needs by her side. He’s deadly and dangerous all while being caring and warm when it comes to Lauren. He is a total softie when it comes to her and he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Lauren is strong and smart and has a whole lot on her plate that she’s been dealing with alone for years. I was so glad Jacko foiled her plan to go back on the run. Their chemistry is intense and smoking hot and with the whole opposites attract thing going for them, it’s totally delicious. In the meantime we have a different plot forming in the way of another threat to Lauren’s safety and that aspect of the story kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. We knew about the crazed drug dealing step cousin but this second threat was a real surprise and may have threatened Lauren’s safety more. Talk about a nail biter! Oh, and the lead into the next installment in this series at the end was amazing and really well done. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
    Thank you, Lisa Marie, for one hell of a smoking hot suspense. I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next!

    Ok

    Not what you expect from this author. She missed bringing in the whole relationship and intense vib we normally get from her characters and books. The midnight series first three books are some of the best books I have ever read but this one missed the mark. Hope this is not what she has coming down the pipeline in the next one. I wont give up on her yet but the next one better bring it though. I have reread the first three over and over then again her follow up with number three with Senior Chief and Allegra sucked too. Doesnt even seem like the same author.

    Ok not great


    ## First, to the person who insists on copying me: "learn to spell lady".

    On to the book. It was just OK. Don't get me wrong, it had potential. However, it missed the mark. We didn't get to experience the couple getting to know each other. They barely spoke. Most of the dialogue took place in the heroine's head. The sex was mediocre at best. I was definitely disappointed. 2.5 stars was the best I could do.

    Not as good

    This book was pretty short more of a novella. Not nearly as good as the rest of the series. Not much happened the heroine spent most of the book talking to herself in her own head. Next book i will wait for the reviews before i buy.
