Series: Midnight Breed Book #12
Author: Lara Adrian
Blurb: With the acclaimed Midnight Breed series, New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian has written thrilling novels of electrifying romance and heart-pounding suspense—page-turners in which humans and vampires live tenuously side by side. In Crave the Night, Adrian brings the Breed and its world to the brink of war, where even the deepest passion can shatter into violence. Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order—an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires—Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan’s hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire—a woman of wealth and high social standing who has long been promised to another Breed male, and who may also prove to be the key to rooting out Nathan’s elusive quarry.
Jordana lives a life of glittering privilege as a member of a prominent Breed family in Boston. Surrounded by fine things and fawning admirers, Jordana wants for nothing—until she crosses paths with a dark, intense warrior from the Order and finds herself swept into an impulsive, sizzling kiss that neither of them will forget. As much as she tries to deny her deep feelings for Nathan, Jordana cannot resist the craving to be near him, to break through his forbidding walls and see the man he truly is. But getting close to Nathan will thrust Jordana into a treacherous new world, forcing her to risk all she has and all she knows about herself and her past. And loving this seductive man could be the most dangerous temptation of all.
Thoughts: You would think that with this being Book 12 in the series it would be doing like a lot of other lengthy ones have done – getting stale. Let me reassure that is far from the case! I have read absolutely every book in this series, and I have to say that Crave the Night is one of my favorites. With every book you get drawn more and more into this fascinating world, and this one simply drags you in deeper. And makes my addiction to her books even stronger!
Jordana and Nathan have become two of my favorite characters, as well, with Nathan being your typical bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks….(err, well, maybe you’re not so typical GenOne Breed from Drago’s torture chamber and lab, but you get the idea)….and Jordana, your elite and proper lady that is being stifled from all the expectations thrust upon her to the ‘right’ thing. Which has nothing to do with Nathan. Their story is a powerful, spellbinding, and surprising tale that will definitely keep your nose stuck to your readers! Definitely a must read!
