Book Review: Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy

Midnight Target (Killer Instinct #8)
By Elle Kennedy 
Release Date: April 15, 2017
Four years ago, Cate’s entire life changed when she discovered she was the daughter of a supersoldier. But Jim Morgan’s overprotectiveness has pushed her away. These days, she’s working as a freelance photographer and living the dangerous life Jim never wanted for her.

When Cate snaps a photo linking a corrupt South American politician with the leader of a notorious drug cartel, her mercenary father leads a team to rescue her—only to get shot and critically wounded in the process.

As Morgan’s operatives rally together on a revenge mission, they’re faced with new alliances and old heartaches. Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton, the man who broke her heart two years ago, while Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port resurface after years apart to finally try to deal with everything they’d left unsaid.

Soon it’s all-out war between the cartel and the mercenaries—with two couples caught in the middle of the blood feud. Love and redemption are within their reach...but first they have to make it home alive.

Elle Kennedy can write in any genre and I'm going to read it. I fell in love with her Killer Instincts series when I picked up Midnight Pursuits and I have devoured every book since. I can't believe this is the end of the series and I couldn't wait to see what would happen with my favorite mercenary crew. 

Cate has grown up watching her mother suffer as she was kept alive by Cate's grandfather. Four years ago, though, Cate's life changed when she was united with her father Jim Morgan. As the leader of a mercenary team, Jim is just a bit overprotective of his only daughter. Cate is tired of being forced to live a normal, sheltered life by Jim and wants to make a difference as a freelance photographer. When Cate takes a picture of someone who is supposed to be dead, she finds herself having to call her dad in to help protect her. Jim ends up getting hurt while protecting Cate and his whole team reunites to protect Jim and Cate and the only family they've ever known. 

I was dying to read Cate and Ash's book ever since they met. There was an age difference when they met and Cate was too young for Ash to make a move on, but now that Cate is in her twenties, there is no excuse for Ash not to act on his attraction. Well, except for the fact that Jim Morgan would personally torture and kill Ash for touching his daughter. It was so sad watching how conflicted Ash was over his feelings and loyalty to Jim while Cate couldn't understand why Ash would continuously reject her when he obviously had feelings for her. There was just so much emotion among the main characters, especially when Jim is critically wounded and they don't know if he'll make it. I have followed these characters for so long and have become so emotionally invested in them and I just wanted to see them all happy and healthy! Oh, and we finally got Sully and Liam's story, which we've been following for sooooo long. We really got two romances in one, which I really loved! 

As always, there is intense action and heart pumping moments that had me praying everyone would end up okay. They dealt with a seriously dangerous man in this book and I had no idea if someone was waiting around the corner to hurt them at any minute. It was heart crushing when Jim got hurt and you didn't know if he would make it out or not. Every member of his team did not hesitate to run to his side and show the loyalty they've felt towards one another throughout this whole series. 

If you have read and loved this series, you have got to pick up this concluding novel. If you haven't started this series yet, you must! Elle Kennedy is a master of addicting action and hot romances with characters who are kick-butt and insanely loyal to one another. I couldn't have asked for a better ending to an amazing series!
