    I love Lisa Marie Rice but only like this book

    I've enjoyed and loved many of her books including the previous two to this series with Sam's being my favorite. This one started out well but started becoming what I call too much head speak and not enough main character interaction. I loved the build up of Chloe coming to RBK and the reunion with Harry. In true LMR style the two main characters immediately recognized what they were to each other. I enjoyed Chloe having a backbone and not jumping to conclusions early on about Mike and helping him. I even liked Harry stepping up protecting his sister. What I didn't like was the book then did a large 6 month fastforward. I was like ????? It then picked up and steamrolled with chloe getting threatened and them coming back together and the resolution. I missed the relationship building and the tension which is what LMR is so good at. So I love LMR but only "like" this book:(

    3rd book

    ## Yeah, the man whore thing bothered me too a bit (like the last reviewer), but i got over it after the 1st chapter. This was a terrific book with two very interesting leads. This heroine could have been portrayed as weak and fragile but somehow wasn't (thank you ms. Rice). And i loved the way the author incorporated the characters from the first two books. My favorite remains book #1 (sam & nicole), then this one. I could hardly put it down. My only complaint was the ending. I like my endings to be a little longer, more satisfying. Sort of a reward of sorts. But overall a great read!

    Liked first two

    First two in this series were better. Personal preference is less man-whore tendencies.

    10/15/12 A likeable book, but not as good as the first two. Mike seemed to me to be just a tad creepy stalker.

    I can't agree with other reviewers when they criticize this book. I think its the best of the three and the struggles Mike(who is not a "manwhore") has with using sex to kill his pain are well realized and a good counterpoint to the evil mafiya to whom women are only a commodity. The six month hiatus was very necessary, and why it benefitted the couple so well is spelled out in the book. They actually get to know each other instead of immediately hitting the sheets for smokin' hot sex. Not that there is anything wrong with that!

    Good plot, but not a lot of dialect.

    The book had good character development, and created a very picturesque plot. However, it severely lacked in dialect and the story jumped around a bit. Perhaps a little too much time spent in developing the characters. Not a bad book overall.

    Great ending to a series! I love Lisa Marie Rice and have read

    Great ending to a series! I love Lisa Marie Rice and have read all her books. After meeting Mike in the first book, Into the Crossfire, I was anxious for his book and Lisa didn't disappoint. He's a damaged soul and Chloe was the perfect woman for him. Both of these characters deserved a happily-ever-after and they got it. I also really liked that the characters from the other books were involved in the story and didn't just "drop in". I'm looking forward to Lisa's next book, Heart of Danger, which I hope is the beginning of a new series.

    Very sweet and extremely hot!

    This book was the last in a trilogy and I wish I had read the two other books before but I still loved this one. It can stand alone but the various references to prior storylines may confuse some. It is a really sweet love story and I love how the main female character grows and evolves through the storyline. I highly recommend this story!

    Ok read

    Ok read, not as good as Sam and Nicoles story or the whole Midnight Series. I do love most of LMR's writings. I just didn't feel the emotions between the two main characters, the story seemed rushed.

    About Nightfire

    While I agree with some of the other reviews I found it to be a decent. If I were to say anything about the romance area, it would be that Mike was no where the same persona as the first two books. As for the suspence/drama, it seemed a little rushed and under-developed. Still it is a good read and a keeper.

    As you can see, NIGHTFIRE is the third book in the Protectors se

    As you can see, NIGHTFIRE is the third book in the Protectors series. I would call this more of a companion to the series, able to be read as a stand-alone, which is what I did. There is some background from the first two books that is peppered in to keep you in the loop. I will definitely be going back and reading the first two books. From the bits I picked up, they sound as good as NIGHTFIRE.

    And that's exactly how I'd classify NIGHTFIRE; very good. It's a fairly typical adult romance, but with more action. You have your alpha male hero in Mike. He's damaged, very damaged. And he is living his life in a extremely destructive manner. But his reasoning is valid. He's simply lost. Mike is also a successful businessman, friend, and works hard to secure the protection of abused women. So that automatically scores him 10k awesome points. Chloe is somewhat a typical heroine, but better. She had a horrific childhood. She's alone and vulnerable.. Chloe has a genuine heart of gold and was easy to root for. The chemistry between them is instantaneous, but it wasn't in an annoying way. Sometimes sparks fly immediately. I've seen it happen.

    Even though Mike and Chloe have only known each other a few hours, they are on the fast track to sexy-time city. Circumstance, however, and some bad decisions on Mike's part, put a grinding halt to the festivities. Mike and Chloe, once potential lovers, are left hovering in the friend zone. But a dangerous new threat pushes them back together and Mike will risk all to keep his lady safe.

    So like I said, good book. I had an excellent time reading it. There were some nice steamy bits, though I actually expected more of them. The familial, comfortable vibe amongst all the characters was charming. I was surprised by how big a role the (what I thought was) secondary story played. I actually learned more than I ever wanted to know about human trafficking and sexual slavery. Such a sad issue, but I appreciate that the author was shedding light on it. And in the end, it serves as the impetus for the primary story, Mike and Chloe.

    NIGHTFIRE is perfect you are itching for an adult romance that also has some kick-butt action. It was a nice break from my norm.


    Favorite Quote:

    "And then Mike said three words he had never said to any human being before. Three words he never thought he could say, three words he'd worked his whole life not to have to say.

    'Chloe.' His voice was hoarse, the words painful to get out. 'I need you.' "
