Deeper Than Midnight - Lara Adrian


At eighteen, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of captivity and torment, Corinne is rescued by the Order, a cadre of vampire warriors embroiled in a war against Dragos and his followers. Her innocence taken, Corinne has lost a piece of her heart as well—the one thing that gave her hope during her imprisonment, and the only thing that matters to her now that she is free.

Assigned to safeguard Corinne on her trip home is a formidable golden-eyed Breed male called Hunter. Once Dragos’s most deadly assassin, Hunter now works for the Order, and he’s hell-bent on making Dragos pay for his manifold sins. Bonded to Corinne by their mutual desire, Hunter will have to decide how far he’ll go to end Dragos’s reign of evil—even if carrying out his mission means shattering Corinne’s tender heart

Deeper Than Midnight (Midnight Breed, #9)What is going on with numerous reviews and fellow GR peeps telling me that this wasn’t all it was expected to be? Personally I think you should all give your selves a slap in the face. I will excuse this infringement and say you all have been in a book funk, because I thought this book rocked.

It was easily one of my fav breed stories, not the best but pretty darn close. I went back and looked at my review for the last Breed novel that was released and I was not so much of a fan, so DTM has truly redeemed this series in my eyes. The last books was highly erotic with so much sex that even I complained about it and for those who are a fan of Sam, know that there is never too much Sex. And even in books before that the story was more focused on action and Dragos this and Dragos that, but DTM delved a little more into the actual lives of the Breeds and has roughly three story lines going on at once. We got to find out more about Gideon and Savannah, we see a new life bought into the Breed world, and Chase (Harvard) got a massive amount of page time to set up for his book and offcourse Lucan and Gabrielle.
Obviously at the start I felt like I was readin
g about Arni in the terminator – he was all robotic and stiff as a freaking bored! But once me and my girl, Elena worked out that, Hunter was a still a big Virgin, had not groped no boobies or even played slap the monkey from time to time, well this began to be so much more than a enactment of the terminator and more of a discovery of Hunters self and his very very high libido! YEEHAW!

But wait! There was a story in there. We met Corinne in the last Breed book. She had been freed from Dragos’s prison after almost 75 years of captivity. She is paired up with Hunter who is given the mission of delivering her back to her Dark haven home and her mother and father. But secretly Corinne wants to find her son, Nathan that she gave birth to some 13 yrs before while she was in captivity. When her and Hunter arrive at her Dark haven home and realize her parents have betrayed her, she and Hunter start an adventure that ultimately leads them to her son.

Corinne and Hunters story was just...awwwwwww. Both were so new to the world of love and tenderness that it was almost heartbreaking. There wasn’t bonking in every scene, these two took their time and got to know each other and shared private moments and secret kisses before delving into the world of Breed mating. The fact the Hunter was a virgin was so cute! But for a man who had no prior experience he did mighty well for himself. No one pump wonder for this trained assassin!

Of course, both were harbouring secrets from one another that ultimately came out and the shit hit the fan, but that’s almost predicable in every single romance novel, isn’t it?

I liked the concept of Corinne having her son. I even had this silly notion in my head that somehow Hunter was his father but I was wrong. The ending for Corinne and Hunter was nice. It’s not what I would have preferred but it was still an ending and they had closure. As for the rest of the Breeds well all I can say is .........................

Cliff Hangers ARE.NOT.COOL.

I like closure with my stories, with a well set up story line for the next novel, but leaving me hanging like a yoyo!??!?! OMDAYUM! Everything just went to shit at the very last possible moment for the rest of the Breeds and then I was turning the pages hungrily and then NOTHING! And how long do I have to wait to see what happens? NEXT YEAR! Im going to die! Okay, so maybe that’s an exaggeration on my part but that’s how I feel. My countdown starts now.
