She’s smart, seductive, and in way over her head.
He’s her only way out.
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.
Midnight Alias is the second book in Elle Kennedy's Killer Instincts series. I had really liked the first book in this series and it had me curious to see how the stories went forward with other couples so I picked up Midnight Alias right after and I am so glad I did because I think I enjoyed Midnight Alias even more than Midnight Rescue.
Luke is the hero in Midnight Alias. This sexy cajun was portrayed as a total player in the last book with his good looks. Here we see what is beneath the surface. When an undercover DEA agent goes off the radar Jim Morgan's team has to recover the man. This is where Luke meets Olivia who is one of the strippers in the club owned by the people Luke and his team are investigating. It is a total case of insta love where Luke is concerned. It was cute seeing him so smitten with Olivia.
Olivia, again, was not a very easy heroine to like. I don't know why that keeps happening with me in this series. She is actually a student who has to take care of her mother who is in remission the third time from cancer. Therefore, Olivia has no option but to work in the club to pay the bills. It also doesn't help that the owner of the club thinks himself to be in love with Olivia.
Olivia was slow to trust Luke but I liked how Luke was always so willing to help her out. Luke and Olivia defintiely had chemistry but while Olivia was hesitant Luke was always very open about his feelings. I liked how Luke was willing to work in their relationship and he was so willing to try for a serious commitment.
Some threads from the previous book are continued in this one. I am SO happy that Trevor and Isabel's book is next because those two are my favorite. The sparks flying between Jim Morgan and Noelle can't be ignored and D, Ethan, Liam and Sully make for great comic relief. I enjoyed Midnight Alias.
