Midnight Awakening by Lara Adrian
Series: Midnight Breeds #3
Published by Tantor Audio Genres: Paranormal
Darkhaven beauty Elise Chase is back in Midnight Awakening. We last saw her suffering the horrific loss of her son, on the heels of her husband’s death. Now she is living among humans and out of Darkhaven’s safety, even though it is hard it is on her psychic senses. Elise made a promise to her son that she would make those in Boston who played a part in his death pay. Now she is on a one-woman mission to help rid the area of “Minions,” those brutal human slaves that belong only to the strongest vampires, who turn the Minions into evil one-track mind beings. The one thing she doesn’t count on is ever running into Tegan again.
Tegan is a member of “the Order,” a warrior class of the “Breeds,” meaning he is one seriously alpha male and a vampire to boot. Elise is surprised when she ends up getting caught by rogue vampires and Tegan swoops in to save her. She is really surprised when he cares for her tenderly while appearing to have no emotion.
Neither can seem to get the other out of their minds and when Elise is in danger suddenly Tegan is also there. Can Elise crack that brick wall Tegan has built up around his emotions? And will they both live long enough for her to even try?
I admit that I am hooked on Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Series. I love how in Midnight Awakening Ms. Adrian has made probably the roughest of her warriors deal with not only a stubborn female, but one that he can’t seem to ignore. Though I do think he walks over Elise a bit and is a little rougher than he needed to be, you can see that someone who is a few hundred years old would have a different point of reference. If you enjoy the vampire genre then you will definitely enjoy the twists that Ms. Adrian has put in her version and should pick up Midnight Awakening as well as the rest of the books in the Midnight Breed series. Since the audio books seem to be lagging a few years behind the original print release, I know there are a number more to look forward to listening to in the future; I just wish the future was now.
