Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian (thoughts)

Summary from Goodreads:

"He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite."

My Thoughts:

Kiss of Midnight was a fun paranormal romance and I will absolutely be coming back for more! What I liked about this book was how dark and moody it was. Gabrielle wasn't your cookie cutter damsel in distress...instead she was a well-fleshed out main character that was dealing with her own issues and past. Lucan enters her life and her entire world is basically turned upside down. The relationship that develops between the two of them is filled with heat and passion almost instantaneously. I loved the constant tension that there was between them (it was HOT!) I found the storyline to be quite engrossing as well and I am anxious to read the 2nd book to see what happens next. This book left a lot open and I'm guessing that we will continue to learn more in each book of the series. So hopefully all of my unanswered questions will be answered :)

All in all, this was a solid beginning to this paranormal romance series! It was exactly what I was in the mood for at the time while I was reading it, and I couldn't ask for more. I will admit to having a few quibbles here and there but overall I really liked it. I enjoyed the ride that the author took me on, and found myself eager to continue on with the series. All good things which means I would recommend this one!

Bottom Line: A steamy paranormal romance and most certainly worth reading!

Disclosure: Checked out from my local library...I want to say that I picked up this book based off of Christine from The Happily Ever After...'s recommendation or reviews of this series. I'm sure glad that I did!


  1. Sounds like you enjoyed this paranormal romance! Excellent concise review!

  2. Sounds exciting Sam and HOT :-)

    I won the 1st three in this series, need to get to them.

  3. sounds good! I do enjoy paranormal romance especially when the tension is hot. Nice review.

  4. must stop reviewing books!! Okay...I have to read this one..I just have to! I'm hoping my library has it!

  5. I have it as a ebook freebie but I am so terrible with reading those

  6. So glad to hear you liked it, Samantha! I am shockingly caught up in this series [there are TEN in all to date], save for the latest which came out in hardcover maybe three months ago. I would give the whole series a solid B rating at this point. There were maybe two books in the middle that I thought 'uh oh, is this series going to falter?' but then it picked up speed again after that. Definitely entertaining books with some sexy romance, lots of fighting action and tension galore.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
