Review ~ Midnight Rescue (Killer Instincts, #1) by Elle Kennedy

Goodreads Summary: 

Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage. And she's the good guy.

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: trust no one.
Abby's latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.

The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.

My Review :

I read Off-Campus books by Elle Kennedy and loved her since then. And as soon as I heard about this series I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. My expectations were more like Off-Campus writing but it is totally different and just as great.

There are two teams of assassins, Noelle's Chameleons, female assassins and Jim Morgan's Mercenaries. And both the teams together kicks some asses in this series.

Abby Sinclair, our female protagonist, she is one of the best assassins from Noelle's team. She is working a undercover job and she comes across the sex trade operation and to save those girls she blows her own cover and gets captured. She is brutally abused there but she tries to keep it together to save those girls. She cares a lot about these girls and wants to save them bad, as a result of her being brutally assaulted in her childhood. 

Here Noelle is worried that Abby is gone off radar means she has been captured and to find her, she comes to ask for help to Jim Morgan. And there you meet our male protagonist, Kane. Kane was patient, head of the team in the absence of Jim and he handles everything well, patiently. And the team goes on a rescue mission of Abby. They find her in a very bad state, yet she has taken on some goons single handedly. And Kane is right to be aware of her assassin abilities. Yet he can't help but be intrigued of this stranger.

Now that Abby is back safe, she can't rescue the girls from the safe place. She has to do something, convince people and let her go on this suicide, rescue mission. and so does everyone after a lot of discussion agrees to help Abby and in comes another Noelle's Chameleons Isabel to help them. 

We meet a lot of Jim's men by this point too. And at this point, I was more excited about Trevor and Isabel's story and Abby and Kane's story kind of bland here. Understandably Abby has built those walls around her, cause she has a horrific past. But Kane, he can be patient and helps her bring down her own walls.

I loved the end. The fighting, Kane and Abby coming together. It was amazing.

My Rating - 4.5 stars!
