Review: Crave The Night (Midnight Breed #12) by Lara Adrian

Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order—an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires—Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan’s hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire—a woman of wealth and high social standing who has long been promised to another Breed male, and who may also prove to be the key to rooting out Nathan’s elusive quarry.

Jordana lives a life of glittering privilege as a member of a prominent Breed family in Boston. Surrounded by fine things and fawning admirers, Jordana wants for nothing—until she crosses paths with a dark, intense warrior from the Order and finds herself swept into an impulsive, sizzling kiss that neither of them will forget. As much as she tries to deny her deep feelings for Nathan, Jordana cannot resist the craving to be near him, to break through his forbidding walls and see the man he truly is. But getting close to Nathan will thrust Jordana into a treacherous new world, forcing her to risk all she has and all she knows about herself and her past. And loving this seductive man could be the most dangerous temptation of all.

The Midnight Breed books are by far my favorite vampire paranormal romance series. With Adrian flashing forward twenty years with the events at the end of Darker After Midnight she has allowed her readers to keep up with their favorite past couples by now reading their adult children. Nathan is the grown child we first met in Deeper Than Midnight. He is a grown man now and a squad captain within the Order.

Knowing Nathan’s origins you know he is going to have some damage. Yes he did some growing up within the loving home of Corinne and Hunter, but he came to them after he was trained to be a Hunter. I’m sure spending twenty years within the family of the Order has helped him heal some, he still has some rough edges and those made him all the more sexy. All of this made him an even better match for Jordana. She has been raised among the elite with all of its fineries. She is the polar opposite of Nathan in every single way possible.

Sadly I guessed where some of Crave the Night was going. There were not any indicators that the events would go this way. I guess I just drew a logical conclusion that the tie in had to come from somewhere. That being said Jordana turned out to be a far more fascinating character than she could have been. That girl has got a mess of secrets that she doesn’t even know about. Secrets that put her in harms way. These secrets will keep Nathan in her life protecting what he has deemed his. Sexy stuff there!

Everything about this series is just made of all that is awesome. I love the spin that Adrian has put on her brand of vampires. I like their origins and the complexities of their world. I’m beyond intrigued by where she is going with the Atlantean’s. As always with this series I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

Favorite quote, Nathan to Jordana: “Tonight we play on my terms.”
