Midnight Abduction hits all the emotions, it digs deep, it is gripping, potent, and powerful with the force of feels ranging from adoration, to regret to fear and back. The tale mesmerized me. The danger is constantly present, nothing is given, the fight for survival is fierce, and peril is near and deathly. The up, close, and dangerous fight for life, the many hits, the gun-wounds, the unknown culprits, the constant terror of the kids' survival - - it is riveting, it is captivating, making the book unputdownable with the need to know more.
Benning Reeves and Ana Ramirez have a painful history that had drastic consequences on both of their lives. I loved the honesty and respect they had for each other. They talked about the hard things, Benning was transparent about his relationship to his kids' mother, he was honest about his fears and wishes for the future, about his feelings towards Ana. At first, I was puzzled with Ana's reasoning of her life choices, yet as the story progress and she opened up and the plot develops, understanding dawned.
Nichole Severn writes dynamic romantic suspense where the intrigue is explosive and intense and the romance is ardent yet sweet and clean. I love her books, I enjoy the high energy and tense atmosphere of them, and I think Midnight Abduction is my favorite book of hers to date. With the fragile emotional turbulence and the vulnerability of the protagonists, it just touched me even deeper and broader than others before.
Romantic suspense at its best form, I highly recommend Midnight Abduction. It is a book that left me in awe and gave me the best kind of book hangover. Loved it!
