“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week’s spotlight is on:
MIDNIGHT ACTION by Elle Kennedy
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
She’s got a broken heart…
and a fully loaded arsenal….
Ex–army ranger Jim Morgan leads a team of elite mercenaries, but eighteen years ago in Paris, he was part of a black ops unit whose mission was to hunt down a rogue operative. In order to trap the criminal, Jim seduced Noelle, the man’s daughter—a ruthless act that cost him the love of his life and turned her into a mortal enemy. Now he can’t trust her, but he still desires her. He also needs her help….
Older, wiser, and unwilling to play the fool again, Noelle runs a group of highly skilled assassins. And she’s just been offered the hit of the century: Eliminate Jim Morgan. History gives them no reason to trust each other, but with their lives in jeopardy at the hands of a common enemy, the lines between love and hate are soon blurred. Now Noelle and Jim must face the past if they want to have a future—let alone a future together.
Why am I waiting?
I have to give a shout-out to Anna @ Herding Cats & Burning Soup for introducing Elle Kennedy to me. I read a review of one of her books at Anna’s blog and decided to try reading the book. And I loved it! I love Elle Kennedy’s writing style, her character development, and how great she builds up the plot.
I was so excited to learn that Noelle and Jim are finally getting their own story. These two are straddling that thin line between hate and love but their chemistry is off the charts. Even when they are threatening to kill each other, you know they are harboring feelings other than hate for each other.
What are you “waiting on” this Wednesday? I would love to hear all about them.
