He is perfect in his self-control, until Elise seeks his aid in her personal war. An unholy alliance is forged a bond that will link them by blood and vow and plunge them into a tempest of danger, desire, and the darkest passions of the heart.
Each one of the books in this series pulls me in just a little bit deeper. I know I jumped aboard the ‘Breed Train’ a little late in the game, but that just means I have plenty of books to keep me busy while I play catch up. Sometimes procrastination has its perks 😉
Elise and Tegan had a rocky start. They didn’t meet under the best of circumstances at the end of Kiss of Crimson. Elise was totally broken and in a pretty dark place. Since that’s where Tegan spent most of his time emotionally, their match was perfect. That didn’t mean that it was automatic or easy. They had both built a wall around themselves that they were determined to keep up. As frustrating and heartbreaking as it was I’m glad that they fought their attraction as long as they did in Midnight Awakening. It shouldn’t have been easy for either one of them to give into their attraction. It just made me sympathize and fall in love with their characters even more.
One of the things that became obvious to me in Midnight Awakening was that the Breed Mates are an integral part of the group. They all bring special gifts to the table and they are respected for more than just their love and support. That doesn’t keep the Breed males from being any less protective – but it goes both ways and Elise proved that to the extreme in this book.
There was a lot revealed in Midnight Awakening. Some issues were resolved but just as many were discovered. The supporting characters, both new and familiar were a great addition to his installment and I can’t wait to get to see more of the familiar and learn more about the rest. I think I’m going to enjoy spending some more quality time with these alpha males and their strong and supportive mates.
