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.

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
