    I have been so freaking excited for this book, and the moment the ARC dropped into my kindle I dropped everything to read it and I finished it one sitting, unable to put it down. It’s a fast-paced, action-packed, exciting, intriguing, fun, sexy and romantic addition to the

    series, and I loved it!

    This is book 15 in the series, and while you’ll get more enjoyment out of it if you’re a fan of the series and have followed these characters and their storylines throughout the series, it would be possible to pick this book up if you’ve missed a few books, or even if you are new to the Breed world.

    This is the story of Aric Chase (son of Stirling & Tavia Chase, twin brother of Carys). As a trainee for the Order, he’s dedicated to his career as a warrior and wants nothing more than to get out in the field like his father, his friends, and the men he has looked up to all his life. So when he gets the chance to take on a mission in Montreal, he jumps at it.

    Kaya is a breedmate who is training with the Montreal branch of the Order. After surviving a torturous childhood and some time on the streets, she is tough, fierce and determined, and is working hard to prove herself to her team – the first real ‘family’ she has ever experienced.

    When Aric and Kaya are teamed up to go undercover to investigate a lead in the ongoing war against Opus Nostrum (a terrorist group determined to wipe out the Breed), they both have something to prove and they throw themselves into their mission. It doesn’t exactly go as planned, which sets the stage for their work together to continue, and for the rest of the Order to get drawn in to their ever-complicated investigation.

    They also didn’t expect the explosive connection they feel to each other. Neither of them have pursued relationships in the past, both of them focussed on their careers, but while Aric decides there’s nothing wrong with having a bit of fun with his temporary partner, Kaya is reluctant to get involved with one of the Breed’s golden boys, and with the sexual tension building, let the fun commence!

    I love Aric! He may be arrogant, but he’s a genuinely good guy. He wants Kaya, he doesn’t hide it, and I loved his sweet, flirtatious side.

    Kaya is tough, and no-nonsense, and though she may try to resist, there is something brewing between them that neither of them are able to deny, and when they finally decide to explore that chemistry, holy freaking hotness! They quickly realise that their connection is more than just physical, and I loved watching them fall for each other!

    But Kaya has secrets. She has a past that she has tried hard to move on from, but that she remains tied to, and those ties are about to cause big problems with her work for the order. Torn between the past, and her new family and the man she’s falling for, she will be forced to decide where her loyalties really lie – but will Aric still be standing by her side when the truth is revealed?

    It’s all very exciting. There are twists and turns, some predictable and some not, but even though I predicted the main twists, it didn’t diminish my love of the story, and with ups and downs, high action, excitement, secrets and emotional revelations, I loved the way it all played out.

    I loved Aric and Kaya together. Their feelings for each other take them both by surprise, but I love how functional they were about it. They followed their hearts, and though they got scared and there were moments of confusion and uncertainty, I could completely understand where they were at, and on the whole their love story is sweet, passionate and just gorgeous.

    A big bonus for me – with the story being set in Montreal, it gives us the chance to hook up with Niko and Renata again, and OMG, I loved their story! A devoted couple, I loved catching up with them, I loved the direction of their story, and I love that we even got a glimpse into Niko’s POV. It was really special, and a great added extra to the book. Mira and Kellan also appear, as does Rafe (Dante & Tess’s son), and I loved his storyline!

    I loved being back in the

    world. I was immediately sucked back into everything that I love about this world, I loved catching up with old characters, as well as meeting new, and this book was just what I was hoping for.

    I loved it. 4.5 stars.

    , it's been my favourite PNR series for a long time now and in my opinion

    books just keep getting better and better. The last few novellas have been great but they were about some of the European Order members so this is our first chance to catch up with the core order members in a while. I hadn't actually realised how much I missed them until I started reading this but it was absolutely wonderful to see so many old familiar faces and I'm loving getting to know the next generation too.

    The Order has been trying to put a stop to Opus Nostrum for a while now, this terror group wants to wipe the Breed off the face of the planet and now that they have access to UV weapons they're an even more dangerous enemy. Every lead the Order get seems to reach a dead end and Opus Nostrum are always one step ahead so they really need to work fast to get information from their latest suspect. Aric is Sterling and Tavia's son and twin to Carys, his rare daywalker abilities make him the ideal Order member to go undercover at a high class wedding where they might have a chance to interrogate their mark. He has been teamed up with Kaya, a breedmate who has worked hard to prove herself a valuable asset to the Order. Both Aric and Kaya are desperate to become fully fledged members and this assignment is the perfect time to show off their skills. Kaya's unique breedmate ability to read people's mind with a touch, combined with Aric's ability to wipe memories should make it easy to get information on Opus Nostrum without tipping their hand but field jobs hardly ever go exactly as planned and if things go wrong they'll be on their own.

    Kaya was such an easy character to like, she has worked so hard to prove herself to the Order and although she's no match for a member of the Breed in physical strength she holds her own pretty well and brings her own set of skills to the party. Kaya had a difficult upbringing and there are things about her past that she's incredibly ashamed of so she's keeping some pretty big secrets because she's terrified of being kicked out if the Order learns the truth. She would never do anything to hurt the Order, they've become the family she always dreamed of, but when you've been hiding something for so long it just gets harder and harder to come clean.

    Aric initially comes across as a little self centred and arrogant but once you get to know him you realise he's not a bad guy. His parents have always given him and his sister everything they could ever want but they both had to earn their place in the Order - there are no free rides given no matter who your parents are. In fact, having such important family members have only made him feel like he has even more to prove to live up to their reputation. He is drawn to Kaya immediately but they're both reluctant to start any kind of official relationship, partly because he doesn't plant to stay in Montreal for very long but also because Kaya knows her secrets will come out eventually and she doesn't want to lie to to him. What starts as a fairly antagonistic relationship soon grows into mutual respect and that allows them both to give in to the simmering attraction that was there all along. I loved their romance and found it very easy to root for them as a couple.

    We also get the chance to catch up with some of the original couples, Nikolai and Renata are in charge of the Montreal chapter of the Order and they have some exciting things going on in their lives so we see a fair amount of them both along with their adopted daughter Mira and her mate Kellan, but we also get a glimpse of Lucan, Gabrielle, Rio, Dylan, Chase, Tavia, and some of the others. I loved getting to know Rafe (Tess and Dante's son) and really hope we get a book for him but I don't think he's going to be ready for a relationship just yet so we might have to wait a while. This series is just getting better and better, the fight against Opus Nostrum is heating up, the danger to the Breed is increasing and the Order's task to protect Breed and humans alike is just getting more complicated. I love where

    is taking these books and and can't wait to get my hands on the next instalment!

    . For Aric, this mission is a slight detour, he wants to return to Washington, D.C. where he has his future all mapped out, a future that does not include the beautiful and mysterious Kaya. There are unexpected issues that arise on their mission, issues that will keep Aric in Montreal longer than he anticipated. Meanwhile, he and Kaya develop a great partnership with a strong mutual attraction, their chemistry is definitely apparent.

    I love how strong Kaya is, but she has secrets from her past that she is reluctant to share which naturally creates tension between her and Aric, he knows she’s hiding something. The Order has became her family, she didn’t have a healthy family situation growing up and because of the toxic environment she grew up in, she’s reluctant to share her secrets, she fears losing what she has come to love. Eventually they manage to overcome these obstacles and Aric helps her with deal with her past while they look for a trader with ties to The Order.

    I love that we get characters from past books along with a bonus storyline involving Renata and Niko which brings many of the original characters to Montreal. I love that Lara Adrian can keep the storyline intriguing, interesting and fresh. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what happens next! A must-read for all paranormal romance fans, once again another exciting installment in the

    series!!!

    There will be holding back, developing suspicions, thinking over and over again about the consequences. But do not fear. There will a happy ending as usual.

    Apart of the main love story of the book, the secondary stories are very interesting:

    1. Opus Nostrum is back and once more they are packing Breed-killing weapons with ultraviolet technology. And once more they do not hesitate to kill innocent breeds and destroy their Darkhavens.

    2. Nikolai and Renata is close to having a baby and it is time for old friends to meet again and celebrate the fact. A reunion party for our favorite breeds which is ideal for Opus Nostrum to strike if they want the leader of the Breeds dead.

    I don’t really have any negative things to say about this book. The book features the son of my favorite "Harvard" and it is written with the same flawless way that all the series’ books are writer so far by Lara Adrian. So obviously I LOVED IT!

    ***Books about the Chase’s family***

    1. For Sterling Chase:

    Darker After Midnight (Midnight Breed #10)

    2. For Carys Chase:

    Bound to Darkness (Midnight Breed #13)

    ***Book about Nikolai and Renata***

    Veil of Midnight (Midnight Breed #5)

    Enjoy!

Their mission is verifying the Intel with getting inside the target’s head, but everything doesn’t go well! Kaya had a tough childhood, she has a secret but she can’t tell anybody about it, she scared they blame her for betrayal!

    I love this series so much but unfortunately this one wasn’t as good as I expected. It was the least favorite in this series for me. I expected Aric and Kaya to spend more time together alone and know each other better, not just about Kaya’s childhood but about other things! Most of their time was with the order and about the work! Their connection could have been stronger or if it was I didn’t feel it!

    Told in multiple POV, 3rd person. It’s the fifteenth installment in the "Midnight Breed" series and I think it’s better if you read it in order. I hope the next book is about Rafe! All in all, I liked it but didn’t love it and hope you enjoy it as well!
