    1 thought on “Taken by Midnight

    1. 4 5 stars Vampire Paranormal RomanceWhat I loved Brock I ve looked forward to the big, beefy, black, badass teddy bear warrior s story, and he was all the yumminess that I hoped he d bed I adored him in this He s fiercely protective, nurturing, honorable, caring, strong yet gentle, tough yet tender, and sexy as all get out Kudos to Lara Adrian for featuring a hot black although technically Breed, not a man lead romantic hero and for delivering a sensual, emotional, and seductive interracial rom [...]

    2. I did not enjoy this book as much as I liked Shades of Midnight I had been looking forward to this one, too, so I m very disappointed.First I found it difficult to like Jenna Granted she d been through a horrible trauma and was still nursing four year old wounds, but then maybe the book should have started later when she was a little less freaked She was downright unlikable for the first half of the book.Brock is a character I was looking forward to getting to know better But he seemed oddly two [...]

    3. I love Lara Adrian s Midnight Breed series I d definitely rate them as one of my favorite paranormal series of all time My only complaint, and this is why it wasn t a 5 star review, is that I expected out of Jenna She went up against an ancient for Pete s sake And yet she bailed on the Order and her bff Alex at the first chance she got.At the end of Shades of Midnight Jenna had been unconscious and speaking in the ancient s native language Brock was there with her, and immediately felt somethin [...]

    4. Breed warrior Brock Special ability Absorbing the pain and suffering of the others by touchingAge Around 110 years old Breed mate Jenna Special ability Great physical strength, advanced senses, phychic abilities, speaks Ancient language Occupation Former state trooperMark place None She has dermaglyphs which have started to form at the back of her neck.Settings Boston, New York, Gloucester, Newport, Harmony in Alaska This is a great book I loved that it is focused mainly in the action and less i [...]

    5. 7 hours was what it took me to read this book I still can t believe it though,lol I guess I really got caught up with it.It was amazing Much better than the previous book, although not as good as Tegan s, Rio s and Niko s books, but those are just too though to overcome,lol But after those 3 this is definitely my fav in the series.I never thought would end up loving Brock as much as I did, he was a terrific hero Loved him And the heroine, Jenna, was even better She was a thought one, ex police a [...]

    6. 2.5 stars First, the good I loved that the main character was not a breedmate This was the first time ever that the author strayed from her formula Now, the bad We got no explanation for WHY she was made different We know the HOW, but we never got clued in as to why things transpired the way that they did The story itself was About the same as the others entertaining but formulaic I m fine with that by now, or I wouldn t still be reading I know what s to be expected and the formula always delive [...]

    7. happy sigh Love how this one followed a slightly different format than the typical Breedmate Breed from the Order storyline Maybe they did fall for each other kinda quickly and the ending wrapped itself up rather abruptly, but damn it, I don t care Brock was hot and tortured and sweet and Jenna was smart and complicated and a fighter Oh, and their first love scene together Yiss, good stuff.

    8. Taken by Midnight features Brock, one of the newer members of the Order , and Jenna, Alex s best friend from Shades of Midnight Their story is both touching and heartbreaking As an ex cop, Jenna is used to being in control, but after the events in Alaska she is brought to the Order s compound where Brock makes it his duty to protect her First off, I just want to say how amazing it is to see a hot black hero up front and center Brock is the perfect combination of a protector and a supporter Adria [...]

    9. I love how Adrian sticks to the series 8 books and she has never faltered from the romance and basic storyline like most series authors This is a good story, just not one of the best I ve read from Adrian I loved that Jenna was not one of the breeds, but I wanted to know what exactly Jenna was and how her and Brock was going to make things work out between them since she wasn t a breed I guess I like clear closure, than again who knows maybe Adrian will bring Jenna out in the coming books I am [...]

    10. We re in Boston, at a private facility It was the safest place for you to be now The safest place for all of us Read for my Set in New England Halloween bingo square.Way of a paranormal fiction story than romance, this couple had no building relationship at all This book felt like series filler, not a lot of advancement in Dragos vs The Order I wanted Hunter and Mira to get together Mira could age super fast or something but I see Hunter is the hero of the next book with a different heroine Boo [...]

    11. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceSummary Jenna Darrow, in the cold winter months of Alaska, was kidnapped and violated and now she has been rescued and has been taken back to Boston, to the Order s headquarters Her companion is Brock, who can t seem to leave her side and aids her when she is in pain Jenna learns that the life around her, the life she knew before is different from anything that she expected She learns of the truth of vampires, and her brothers recent death [...]

    12. I think ill start off with a big WOW Lara Adrian has got me hooked not that she didn t before , but now the story is progressing and I found putting this book down was a big problem At the crossroads of death and desire, a woman tastes a pleasure no mortal is meant to survive .In the frozen Alaskan wilderness, former state trooper Jenna Darrow survives an unspeakable breach of body and soul But with her narrow escape comes an even greater challenge For strange changes are taking place within he [...]

    13. In our last book, Brock was Kade s bestie and a pretty funny guy He was always cracking jokes and had a lot of charm.Where did all of that go Brock Yeah, so Brock turned into a boring, angsty fuck in this book Maybe it is because he is falling for Jenna, the best friend of Alex in the last book Isn t that cute Best friend girls falling for best friend boys Think of all of the fun game nights they can have at each other s houses every weekend These warriors play seriously hardThe good news is tha [...]

    14. Jenna I loved Jenna when she is introduced in Shades of Midnight Now, she has her own book After surviving the trauma of her family dying and then surviving the Ancient, she s raised the bar in badassery FULL REVIEW thetbrpile.weebly reviews

    15. At the end of the last book, I was dying to read this one Ended up being bored to death I also wish her evolution was better explained but oh well.

    16. Book 8 of the Midnight Breed series, and still going strong Brock and Jenna s story started at the end of the last book, Shades of Midnight, when Jenna was rescued from captivity with the Ancient one From the first moment he saw her, Brock felt drawn to her, and that intense protective nature is carried over to their story He barely leaves her side as she is bought to the compound to recover from her ordeal But it is soon discovered that the Ancient has left her with a mysterious device planted [...]

    17. This review assumes you are familiar with the storyline.I wish I could say I loved this book I wanted to love it I waited with baited breath for it Perhaps that s why I didn t love it Too much anticipation.The build up for Jenna Brock s story from the previous book was impressive Brock s immediate response to the traumatized human created a hmmmm situation Further developments in this book regarding what happened to Jenna while she was with the Ancient created so much potential for storyline dev [...]

    18. I m going to start with a star breakdown because the book needs it.Writing Prose 5Plot advancement 4Romance 3.5Leading Lady Jenna 4Breed Hero Brock 4Conclusion of TAKEN S Story 2There are a lot of good things in this book, and some rather irritating moves Lara pulled out I loved both Brock and Jenna as characters I felt for Jenna being a wife and mother myself, my heart ached for her I never quite got into Brock s self loathing It didn t ring true enough for me because his young charge was welly [...]

    19. Cleverly Written Wow, the plot thickens as the goal of ridding Dragos and keeping him from reeking his evil habit upon all the breed, their mates and humanity.This book was totally different from what I was expecting It wasn t one of Lara Adrians usual hot romances No, it was a book necessary to build the series up for books in the future There was some erotic romance but not like usual but that was ok for me because the story line was excellent.Jenna and Brock s romance was short and sweet but [...]

    20. I m not really sure how to rate this Like the other Breed stories, the writing is wonderful and I love being a part of this world Lara Adrian is an auto buy for me and this is a series that I go back to again and again.This book pickes up right where book 7 ends, so you may want to re read the end first so you re not lost I was a little at first I definitely enjoyed the story and the characters However this book has no real conclusion It definitely keeps the series going though New story lines a [...]

    21. The eighth book in the Midnight Breed series and I enjoyed it The main characters, Jenna Darrow and Brock, were both good souls Jenna had a horrific tragedy and her story started in an earlier book Felt some of the metabolic changes Jenna went through were left unanswered Wanted to know about her transformation Would she be able to do the normal things a breedmate does The information just wasn t there The epilogue had me in tears, and I could have done without it I wanted info on Brock and Je [...]

    22. WOW I don t wanna say much since a lot of my friends haven t read this yet Brock and Jenna s story was great I really love their characters, and the development of their relationship Brock is absolutely smexalicious This story picks up right where Shades of Midnight left off There is lots of action, and the Order s ladies really stepped up in this one Great continuation of the story, I loved it

    23. I found myself interested in the plot and implications for future books than the romance I couldn t get into Brock and Jenna Their scenes were fine and I believed their relationship, I just wasn t feeling it I am excited to read Hunter s story next though.

    24. Great read This is a direct sequel to Shades of Midnight where Jenna and Brock s story actually starts The paranormal storyline continues the fight against Dragos that has been going on for several books now.As usual, Lara Adrian does a superb job of balancing the action with the romance The action is intense as the Order struggles to track down the missing Breedmates and destroy both Dragos and the plans he seems to have put in place The chemistry between Brock and Jenna, who both have enough r [...]

    25. I have to say that Taken by Midnight was one of my favorite Breed books in a long time The Jenna in Taken by Midnight is no longer the despondent almost suicidal woman she was in the previous book Having decided to live when the ancient who kidnapped and fed from her made her choose life or death, the Jenna she becomes as she starts to recover the self she was before tragedy struck and as she starts to change physically from the ancient s machinations is one of Lara Adrian s better heroines I wa [...]

    26. Well I wasn t going to write a review but I can t help myself I was not that into the last book by Lara Kade s story as I felt it lacked some guts and angst But I loved this book Brock was one heck of a breed male I was enthralled with his and Jenna s story How they both did not want to get involved but their chemistry was so evident in this book that they couldn t help themselves I was reading one of the love scenes in a cafe and I must say after reading 4 pages of buildup my heart was pounding [...]

    27. Another winner by Ms Adrian how I love this seriesBrock and Jenna s story was touching and lovely Both characters were strong, stubborn, and sexy as hell Jenna had her demons but so did Brock and together they faced those demons and together they overcame them Although we still don t know what the Ancient planted in the back of her neck and the implications but I suppose we ll learn in the next book.Things picked right up were they left off and they moved at a great pace.Highly recommend this b [...]

    28. Loved it Cannot wait for Hunters book now It s been a while since I read Kades book and now I m hooked again Brock and Jenna were amazing, can t wait for Dante and Tess s baby, so much going on

    29. Okay story, I never really connected emotionally to the main characters The ending was too open ended, we don t know what is happening to the heroine.
