Midnight Games

Just went to show that you should never underestimate the quiet ones – and never let your guard down around them either.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
She wears a thousand deadly identities. He sees through them all.

A master of disguise, Isabel Roma spends her life pretending to be other women.  Normally, her emotions are reined in tight—but sexy mercenary Trevor Callaghan has a knack for getting under her skin. The elite operative’s quiet strength and raw magnetism affect her in ways she’s never felt before, a distraction that can quickly turn deadly in their dangerous line of work.

After putting his tragic past behind him, Trevor is ready to focus on his future—and he damn well intends for Isabel to be in it. When their entire operation is thrown into chaos, Trevor enlists Isabel’s talent for deception. And as they attempt to save their team in a world where the stakes are high and the danger is grave, Trevor must convince Isabel that the woman beneath all the disguises is the one worth having…. 

Point of view:
3rd Person.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
Midnight Games is the third book in the Killer Instinct series. Each book 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.

Yes! Ever since Isabel & Trevor were introduced in book 1, I have been looking forward to this couple’s story. Kennedy does a great job of keeping us interested in their progression during Luke’s book, Midnight Alias – and I absolutely think they both needed that time. Midnight Games is one of my favorites of the series – not just because of the main couple, but the continued building of back stories for the secondary characters and the action/suspense element.

This book starts with several surprises, a missing team member, and someone completely unexpected taking control. Meanwhile, Trevor is trying to break through Isabel’s high emotional walls, respect her expertise and capability as an operative, and working to discover who the mysterious foe is.

While the biggest tension is between Jim & Noelle, I’m completely on board with the next book being about the sniping Ethan & Juliet in Midnight Pursuits.

Allyson Ryan is solid in narrating this whole series. I love her performance and can’t say enough good things about it. She keeps voices, accents, & mannerisms consistent throughout and it’s absolutely binge worthy.
