About the book:

She wears a thousand deadly identities. He sees through them all.

A master of disguise, Isabel Roma spends her life pretending to be other women. Normally, her emotions are reined in tight—but sexy mercenary Trevor Callaghan has a knack for getting under her skin. The elite operative’s quiet strength and raw magnetism affect her in ways she’s never felt before, a distraction that can quickly turn deadly in their dangerous line of work.

After putting his tragic past behind him, Trevor is ready to focus on his future—and he damn well intends for Isabel to be in it. When their entire operation is thrown into chaos, Trevor enlists Isabel’s talent for deception. And as they attempt to save their team in a world where the stakes are high and the danger is grave, Trevor must convince Isabel that the woman beneath all the disguises is the one worth having...
My Thoughts:
In Midnight Games we finally get Trevor and Isabel’s romance which has been brewing since the first book in the Killer Instincts series.  They first met when Jim’s crew of mercenaries and Noelle’s assassins banded together for a mission. 

At the time Trevor is still a shell of the man he used to be, still grieving over the death of his fiancée, Gina.  Isabel and Trevor had to pose as a newlywed couple, totally in love and over-the-top affectionate, and Trevor is surprised to feel an attraction to Isabel, thinking he’d never feel those feelings again. It’s an unhappy discovery, one that unsettles him and fills him with guilt. Isabel feels terrible for Trevor, a man whose zest for life seems to have been extinguished, but she does feel glimpses of heat and passion beyond their disguise.  When they part ways, it’s not a happy situation because Trevor is not in a good mind space and behaves like an ass. 

They’re paired together again in the next book, and Trevor’s feelings have changed significantly.  Even though he’ll never forget his departed fiancée, he’s found the desire to live and be happy again, and he’d like to do that with Isabel at his side. Unfortunately, Isabel leaves him high and dry at her apartment and disappears without a word. 

Trevor and Isabel have had stops and starts to their romance, but in Midnight Games, Trevor is determined to track Isabel down and get serious.  She’s the one and only woman he can’t stop thinking about. But these two will have to sort out their relationship in between dodging attempts on their life when Morgan’s compound is attacked and Morgan himself goes missing. 

Isabel and Trevor’s romance light up the pages and make for a super hot read! There’s a history between this couple and I loved witnessing all the tender moments exchanged.  They’ve let each other in and got close in a way no other has in the past, so I was seriously excited for them to finally come together!  I have to say, it was worth the wait. Trevor and Isabel’s romance ties with Jim and Noelle’s (Midnight Action book 5), as my favorites so far.

Midnight Games will keep you on the edge of your seat with all the twists, action, and danger at every turn.   Fans of romantic suspense will gobble up Elle Kennedy’s addictive and thrilling Killer Instincts series!  On that note, I’m off to read the next book, Killer Pursuits, Ethan and Juliet’s romance.
