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.

I have always loved the Midnight Breed series. It was one of the first vampire series that I got hooked on when I purchased my Kindle back in the day. I always enjoy the men and women of this world. What I like most is they are believable. The characters and the story line.

This one was slightly an exception. While I loved the story line I just didn't find Jordana's background as totally believable. And we didn't find out everything about her until the very end. I felt like there was a lot of build up then just not enough after the big reveal.

But, given that little issue I still really enjoyed the story. It wasn't a true disappointment as there were other parts of the book that make up for it. For instance, Nathan's ability to make Jordana's toes curl right along with the readers!

I really liked his character and I liked his vulnerability with Jordana.

Overall I'd say this is an easy 4 star review. It is enjoyable and a great edition to the series.
