Hope Ellis is a wiz at computers; hacking and programming are all so simple to her. Why is it that life itself cannot be that way? When her parents died suddenly, and a friend noticed that she didn't resemble either parent, it led her down a path of discovery. The path led to an amazing MIDNIGHT KISS and danger. Her friend dies as he is trying to bring her the DNA proof of her parentage and men attempt to break into her apartment moments later. Hope can only call another friend and hope that she can help.
Luke Reynolds wasn't exactly a member of ASI but he is the only one available when the call comes in. He has no way of knowing the danger that will follow this beautiful hacker, and he learns very quickly that he will do anything to protect her. Falling in love was just the icing on the cake.
MIDNIGHT KISS is the fabulous seventh book of Lisa Marie Rice's Men of Midnight series. The story is fast-paced and the insta-attraction is necessary, because of the danger surrounding her. I enjoyed getting to know both Luke and Hope better. I felt so bad for Hope, her upbringing, and the sadness she felt over not having a family. Luke's past just makes you angry as you read what led him joining ASI, but doing that, of course, leads to this HEA. It was also great to find a heroine who isn't a complete shrinking violet. She did a lot to help with the protection of herself and her new man, with her computer and nerd smarts. I have to admit that I got lost a couple of times with the computer, hacking, and DoS talk, but it fit into the vibe of the book. If you are a fan of Ms. Rice's series you will enjoy the return of Felicity and Metal, though all via phone conversations as well as the enigmatic Jacob Black. It is always fun to revisit old favorites.
MIDNIGHT KISS will give you action, drama, danger, romance and steamy rolled into the pages. This is one that will not let you put it down until the end and then you will want more.
