Great start to a series and I can’t wait to go read the next book.

I loved Kane and Abby together and they were a great emotional center for MIDNIGHT RESCUE.
This book had a good story line with lots of action and some hot sex.

Abby Sinclair's childhood was pure hell until she was rescued by an army ranger who helped her become the strong, fearless woman she is today. Abby's now an assassin who will use every advantage to take out her target. But her latest assignment - to kill a Colombian drug lord - goes to hell when she finds out that her target is also in the sex trade. Desperate to free the young girls who are to be sold soon, Abby intentionally blows her cover and is captured and tortured as a result. Abby's boss is none-too-pleased, but she recruits a team of mercenaries to rescue Abby, and part of that team is the devastatingly sexy Kane Woodland.

With Abby's plans falling to pieces around her, she has to put everything on the line to convince Kane and his fellow mercenaries to help her rescue the imprisoned girls. Gaining Kane's help is easy; it's resisting her desire for him that's hard. And the more time they spend together, the hotter the fires between them burn. But can there be a future for an assassin and a mercenary? Abby and Kane might not live long enough to find out.

Enter the high-octane world of Elle Kennedy's KILLER INSTINCTS series with MIDNIGHT RESCUE. From the very first page, Ms. Kennedy thrusts readers into a gritty world where danger doesn't just lurk behind, but attacks from every corner. Abby and Kane are playing the ultimate high stakes game, risking their lives and the lives of their friends to do what's right. But MIDNIGHT RESCUE isn't all about darkness - there's scintillating passion and an excellent love story as well. Ms. Kennedy deftly blends the two as Abby and Kane fall in love.

Abby is a woman who's deeply scarred by the past. She broke my heart and one of the joys of MIDNIGHT RESCUE was watching her start to heal - start to feel.

Quick & Dirty: A straightforward plot with a compelling cast of characters.

Opening Sentence: "Are you ready to talk?"

The Review:

Abby Sinclair is the second best assassin in the world. Her boss Noelle claims the top spot. Abby has been sent in covertly by the Colombian government to assassinate Blanco, an arms dealer and trafficker. Abby has spent the last two months as his girlfriend learning his secrets before she undertakes the assignment she was sent to do. But before Abby can do that she finds out Blanco has hidden young girls at his compound to be sold to the highest bidder. She has two weeks before the auction so she deliberately blows her cover. She is captured and tortured. They want her secrets but she is in control, able to release herself at any time. She wants to be at the auction. She wants to save the girls.

Unbeknownst to Abby, Noelle has hired a mercenary team to rescue Abby from Blanco's clutches but it is the truly evil William Devlin that tortures Abby for information. Kane Woodland is on the rescue team. He finds Abby's body - naked and beaten in a dungeon cell but not after she leaves her mark on Devlin. When Abby comes to she berates the team for rescuing her. She believes she had the situation under control but with bruised ribs and a cracked wrist she may not have made it the two weeks until the auction. Abby is taken back to the mercenary's headquarters in Mexico where she tries to get the team to form a rescue mission to save the girls. Kane reluctantly agrees to help Abby set up a rescue mission. The teams call in two members to help, Trevor Callaghan and Isabel Roma. They can infiltrate as prospective buyers while the team sets up the rescue.

Abby is a product of a horribly abusive childhood. She is saved and trained by someone who turns her into a killing machine.
On a rescue mission to save Abby from one of her missions, Kane is part of an independent contracting team (mercenaries for hire). All ex-military, Navy, SEALs, etc. All gorgeous, sexy and alpha-males.

The book opens with Abby in a columbian prison. She is getting the crap beat out of her, but she is strong and has a bigger plan in mind.
Kane is on the team that rescues her and the romance blooms from there.

This is NOT a 'long walks in the park' romance, this is a gritty, we both have deep-rooted issues, gonna plow through our dark past to try to find some peace with each other, kind of romance.

On 'paper' this sounds kind of hokey and silly, but Elle Kennedy makes this interesting and somewhat realistic. I can believe that there is a sexy female killing machine; but it's funny how all the males in the mercenary team are ALL gorgeous. No fat ones that provide the comic relief, not face-mutilated ones, no plain-Joe ones. All hot. All sexy. Guess each one will get their own book?

This book has one or two steamy scenes, but they are not super hot and heavy. If you are looking for a book that is suspenseful, with action (military physical action), this is for you. If you are looking for a super romantic, heavy on the sex scene book - this is not for you.

I enjoyed reading the book because the plot moved along constantly at a great clip. The characters are all interesting in a very macho way. There are hints of various character vulnerabilities from the other supporting characters, so it is not completely testosterone, unbreakable, unfeeling males.
