BLURB:
Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage. And she's the good guy.

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: trust no one.
Abby's latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.

The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.

REVIEW:
I've been looking for an assassin novel, especially women assassins, thanks to GoodReads I finally find my first one. After reading 2 books with titillating theme, I need more action in my imagination.

I really like Midnight Rescue. It involves two assassin agency, woman and man (different agencies, same mission statement). Kind of like the Mr. & Mrs. Smith movie. So there was a lot of testesterone, sexual tension, action and showing off. Everybody was a bad ass with sepcialized skills and really big ego, trust issues and diva complex. I understand, they all had a dark past and a horrible childhood, so for most of them they are assassins with a purpose. They only kill the "bad guys".

Book 1 is about Abby and Kane. Like I said they are from different agencies, their boss hates each other but as Abby purposely blew her cover to rescue kids from a sex slave mob boss, Nicole; the female assasin boss went to the male boss - Morgan for help. As expected the men does not like the idea but when Morgan heard it was Abby, he had to help. The story was fast. Despicable villians and a psychopath right hand man who gets his kicks when he tortures, whips, rapes and kills his victims. The ending was cheesy and a little hurried but over all the story did well, no stray or boring moments. It is a good start of a new series
