She’s smart, seductive, and in way over her head.
He’s her only way out.
An undercover DEA agent has gone off the radar. Suspecting an internal mole, the government needs Luke Dubois and his elite team of operatives to recover their man, and the New Orleans native thinks he’s found his way inside the dark underbelly of Manhattan: Olivia Taylor, the girlfriend of a mob boss and the sexiest woman he’s ever laid eyes on. His new mission objective? Get past Olivia’s defenses and convince her to take a chance—on him.
All Olivia wanted was to finish law school and live a normal life, but that dream was shattered when one dangerous night put her deeply in a mobster’s debt. Now Luke and his team will help her escape—in exchange for intel on the missing agent. But Olivia doesn’t anticipate her intense attraction to the reckless Louisiana charmer or that she’ll be forced to risk everything—including her heart.
Point of view:
Each book in the Killer Instinct series follows a different couple and there’s definitely a story arc for each book that is completely satisfying – however, there are story lines that cover several books and weave through the series so you’ll want to be sure to read/listen in order, starting with Midnight Rescue.
This isn’t my favorite of the series, but still a solid listen. There’s a few parts that stretch believability a little further than I like & there’s Olivia’s insistence (despite her ill mother) to repeatedly be involved in Ops that sort of annoys me. However, she and Luke are adorable together. We get to know Isabel, Trevor, & D better, meet Liam & Sullivan, and Kane, Abby & Ethan get little cameos.
Kennedy does a great job of giving us many moving parts/ smaller arcs that coalesce into a good overall story. I’m so ready for Trevor & Isabel’s book, Midnight Games.
Allyson Ryan is solid in narrating this whole series. She keeps voices, accents, & mannerisms consistent throughout and it’s absolutely binge worthy.
