Review ~ Midnight Action (Killer Instincts #5) by Elle Kennedy

Goodreads Summary: 

She’s got a broken heart...
and a fully loaded arsenal....

Ex–army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but eighteen years ago in Paris, he was part of a black ops unit whose mission was to hunt down a rogue operative. In order to trap the criminal, Jim seduced Noelle, the man’s daughter—a ruthless act that cost him the love of his life and turned her into a mortal enemy. Now he can’t trust her, but he still desires her. He also needs her help....

Older, wiser, and unwilling to play the fool again, Noelle runs a group of highly skilled assassins. And she’s just been offered the hit of the century: Eliminate Jim Morgan. History gives them no reason to trust each other, but with their lives in jeopardy at the hands of a common enemy, the lines between love and hate are soon blurred. Now Noelle and Jim must face the past if they want to have a future—let alone a future together.

My Review :

I have come to expect amazingness from this series so wasn't surprised when this book turned out to be amazing as well. Elle Kennedy did it again! She delivered a book filled with jaw-dropping romantic suspense.

Jim Morgan and Noelle hated each other throughout the series and having two teams of assassins each, they most of the time come to each other for help whenever they're in need of it. Even though it pains to do it. You can see how much they loathe each other through out the series and that is why, I was intrigued for this book the most.

Noelle gets a contract to kill Jim. Now that is like the hit of the century for her but she doesn't want to kill him just under someone's order and Jim's life is in danger. But why? And when Jim and Noelle are forced to spend time together the secrets reveal and the pain with it.

Jim and Noelle had a past obviously and things were done and not discussed. Usually I am frustrated with whole miscommunication/non-communication thing. But here the situation was really messed up and there is this emotional roller coaster. So many things have happened which hadn't come to light and after so many years Jim and Noelle are given second chance and they just can't stay away from each other. Even though they think that they're toxic for one other.

I really liked the story and the reason behind Jim disappearance really turned out to be a major thing and not just some lame excuse which now days is happening a lot in the books that I am reading. Like there is a huge built up behind some situation and the climax turns out to be very unsatisfying one.

So this doesn't happen at all. I quite like the ending. IT was perfect for Jim and Noelle. It was a great read and the I obviously liked side characters. They're all great in every book!

 Some of my favourite quotes/dialogues:

“She was a drug and he was an addict, hooked on her from the second he'd met her.” (Not very healthy but oh well, it is an apt quote for Jim and Noelle.)
“I hate phones," he grumbled into her neck. "Seriously, I wanna go back in time and murder Alexander Graham Bell." He sat up with a groan. "Or was it Edison who invented the phone? I can never remember."
She had to laugh. "I'm pretty sure it was Bell.” (LOL! Just some funny dialogue!)

My Rating - 4.5 stars!
