3.5 stars-- Midnight Alias (Killer Instincts #2) by Elle Kennedy

Note: I accidentally deleted 6 months of the blog so this is a repost. All comments on the original posts were unfortunately lost. Sorry!

This series. Yall. The characters are...fiery. The guys are with a group of mercenaries. The girls are a group of assassins. They're all rather badass and take no shit from each other. It's a good time.

The hero. He was trying so hard to be a good guy and not take advantage. Olivia, though? Well, she had some thoughts on this. So funny.

She worked the denim down her endless legs, revealing a pair of white panties that matched her bra.

"Why are you still dressed?" she muttered.

Okay then. He wanted to point out that her glaring daggers at him was't likely to get him hot, but the bitch of it was it did get him hot. His cock stiffened and strained, and his heart was suddenly beating a little bit faster.

"You don't want this, he heard himself say. "You're upset, and I can tell the stress is finally getting to you."

Those green eyes flashed. "You're right I'm stressed out." She blew out a breath. "So unstress me, damn it."

Kennedy is always a good pick when you're in the mood for an action packed adventure. Whew!
The Gist: Luke and his team have been contracted to find a missing DEA agent who broke contact while undercover. And Luke meets a stripper. A stripper with some secrets. #HeHadNoChance
Luke and Olivia were, well, they were my first TSTL couple. lol I liked them. I really did. They're good people, hard working, dependable. But dumber than a bag of rocks when it comes to staying alive. It wasn't all the time but goodness they had some choice moments where I just stopped and stared in aw at the stupid coming out of them. lol Lord love em. They were a good mix of steamy and sweet as they tried to figure things out and, you know, not get captured by the bad guys...again. ::snort::

The suspense was nicely done. A nasty mob connected drug dealer obsessed with one of the dancers at his strip club and quite possibly involved with the DEA agent's disappearance. It had a bit of grit and kept things moving along at a nice pace as they tried to track down their missing agent, suss out what else was going on in the strip club and keep Olivia safe.

All in all, Midnight Alias was an entertaining romantic suspense that had me fully invested and ready to see what would happen next. I do enjoy this team of mercenaries and the female assassins they team up with and am having a good time getting to know their individual stories.
An undercover DEA agent has gone off the radar. Suspecting an internal mole, the government needs Luke Dubois and his elite team of operatives to recover their man, and the New Orleans native thinks he’s found his way inside the dark underbelly of Manhattan: Olivia Taylor, the girlfriend of a mob boss and the sexiest woman he’s ever laid eyes on. His new mission objective? Get past Olivia’s defenses and convince her to take a chance—on him.

All Olivia wanted was to finish law school and live a normal life, but that dream was shattered when one dangerous night put her deeply in a mobster’s debt. Now Luke and his team will help her escape—in exchange for intel on the missing agent. But Olivia doesn’t anticipate her intense attraction to the reckless Louisiana charmer or that she’ll be forced to risk everything—including her heart.
