The plot action kept me reading this book, and if somewhat cliched, it still held my interest. I like a good action story even if the author isn't necessarily breaking new ground

Synopsis

Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage. And she's the good guy.

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: trust no one.
Abby's latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.

The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.

The first book in the Killer Instincts series is often dark, sometimes has a touch of humor and is definitely packed with suspenseful action.

Midnight Rescue has a great plot with pretty kick ass characters in it. I love what Abby has been through and how strong of a character she is. I never doubted that she could get the job done

Bottom line I never understood the how and why of this romance. It actually felt like the heroine’s lines and details got switched with some other heroine

For all of the action that this book should have had there were definite stops and starts in the story. It went from fast to slow and back again and when it was slow it was really slow.

I also felt like I never go to KNOW either of the characters. I feel like I knew things. I knew sums of parts, and could see the equation but I never felt like I could see the whole, like I could really humanize, or visualize, or grasp, Abby or Kane. I LIKED Abby, I kind of enjoyed Kane but not being able to really “see” them as full people, full characters.

Midnight Rescue is by all means an action-military-romance novel. Mrs. Kennedy does very deep and shows us how spies work with false names and disguises. I loved reading about this and it was so different from most other books of this genre. This is a fast paced, action filled, oh-my-god-what's-going-to happen-next ride and I never wanted to get off.

The action scenes are interesting—those are probably the strong point of the novel. Unfortunately they bookend a lot of much less interesting material. I could find only one member of Morgan’s team that didn’t seem like a highly familiar stereotype....Elle Kennedy’s Midnight Rescue: A Killer Instincts Novel carried it to an illogical extreme.
