Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
I really liked this book. It was action packed. I love Isabel and Trevor together. I also really enjoyed the plot. I think the only thing I didn't like was D and Noelle sleeping together. I get her and Jim are not together. I get he did something to hurt her but it's just weird that D has had sex with her!

RATING: 4.5 Trev and Iz Hearts!!!! =D <3 (I'm rounding up cause this is is my fav of the series! :P)

Midnight Games finally draws back the curtains on one of the few highly anticipated couples of this series, Isabel and Trevor. We have watched these two dance around one another through the previous two books, our desire to see them together at an all-time high by the time we get the sum of their story. The two of them don’t disappoint, the tension between them fueling our own, hearts clattering a

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 attr
Isabel and Trevor!! They have been the feature of an ongoing parallel storyline in this series and I was so excited to see them finally as the focal couple. In addition to watching their friendship flourish into a romance, their working relationship remains front and center. There's action, suspense, emotion, alter egos, and a significant twist that was pretty clever and certainly unexpected. Midnight Games is my favorite of the Killer Instincts series to date. Check it out!

Exciting installment featuring Isabel and Trevor who have been tap dancing around each other during the last two Ops. (My favorite couple so far) This one opens with mass chaos featuring an attack, murder, and a missing operative. It was chilling and I felt like I was right there in the middle of it. Morgan's crew gets surprising assistance from Noelle with a few of her assassins. She is hilarious and mysterious and helps to make this one entertaining read. There are many twists and turns with ...more

AHHHHHHHHHH!!! Finally! FREAKING finally!! I have been waiting for Trevor and Isabel's story for what seems like forever (not really. It was only 2 books), so you can imagine my excitement going into Midnight Games. Midnight Games wound up being my favorite book in the series so far. When the series first started, Trevor was so sheltered and isolated from everyone else, suffering through the pain and sorrow of his fiancee, Gina's death. I hated seeing him so tortured and wanted him to find
I gave this audiobook an A for the narration and A- for the story at AudioGals.

Lovers of action-packed, suspense-filled romances will not want to miss Midnight Games by Elle Kennedy. In fact, I’m hooked as I not only loved the main characters but also many of the secondary characters which feature in adventure romances of their own later in this series that already has seven released titles (Midnight Games being only the third book). Adding further allure to this hit audiobook is my new top-favo

Isabel Roma, master of disguise, is an ex-Fed now working for an elite operative team. She excels at being other people and created a façade to keep people out in order to protect herself. She’s a compassionate and kind-hearted woman but, underneath the easygoing façade, she is a broken and vulnerable woman. She's running from a past that continues to haunt her every day. She has severe daddy issues that run deep. Her father is a mafia monster that exposed her to a lot of bad things. She couldn’

Timing is everything in love. I have been waiting for Trevor Callaghan and Isabel Roma to get on the same page and finally in this book 3, the stars align for Trevor and Isabel. The narrator Allyson Ryan really delivers as her voice really gave the characters intensity.

When we met Trevor in book 1, he had just lost his fiancée Gina while on assignment and her death caused him to give up on life. Isabel saved him a couple of times when his recklessness almo

When we last saw Trevor and Isabel (Midnight Alias), Isabel had left Trevor without a word and has been off the grid for months. Trevor tracked every lead he could, including visiting her mobster father who’s in prison but he found nothing. Isabel was working undercover for her assassin boss Noelle and now that the mission is over she knows she owes Trevor an explanation for leaving him. They had been getting closer and it scared her, she’s

Ahhhhh this book! I love this series as a whole, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. Probably only second to Midnight Captive. Isabel and Trevor are sooooo awesome together. I’ve been dying for their story and they did not disappoint.

I don’t even know who I want to talk about first because I loved both Isabel and Trevor. I’ll start with Isabel I guess because she is an awesome badass. I loved her and her ability to transform herself is

When last we saw Isabel Roma she had learned a junkie friend from the strip club she was undercover had killed herself. She blames herself as she was in bed with Trevor and late to take her to rehab. She uses it as the excuse to run. To leave Trevor at her apartment waiting her return. She takes a deep cover job from her scary assassin boss, Noelle.

Trevor Callaghan was distraught and worried when Isabel went missing. He did all he could to find her, till he learned she ran from him. Now, in Mexi

Midnight Games is filled with so much intense love connection, pain, and a team of bada** people. Isabel and Trevor had a connection but one kiss sent her scared for five months until Noelle makes her see her wrongs. First flight back and now she is headed to the compound where everyone is including Trevor only she doesn't know what to say to him. Trevor lost his fiance of 10 years so moving on wasn't easy until she saw Isabell who got him out of his funk and had him falling in love for the stub ...more

Another thrilling saga with the dynamic cast of mercenaries and assassins.

Almost all of the characters story lines are started in a previous book so I recommend reading this series in order. We met Trevor Callaghan and Isabel Roma in the previous two books. When we first met Trevor he was on a suicide mission due to the loss of his wife. Isabel was paired with him on a couple of missions over the years and managed to bring him back from his brink of despair. But once she’d done that and saw the

This is my favourite book in the series. I was all but excited to read Trevor and Isabel's story and it was amazing. We meet both these characters in the first book and there Trevor is broken over his fiancée death. And Isabel makes him feel like he wants to live. In the second book Trevor was much better but Isabel isn't in the end and I was on the edge of my seat to see what happens next. And here is the review without the further ado.

From the moment Trevor and Isabel were introduced to each other I knew they would be a great couple and I was excited to read their book. However, I didn't end up enjoying it as well as I had hoped. In the earlier books, Isabel seemed so open and giving but by the time her story rolled around that changed. After going to see her father in the previous book, she left Trevor without a word and disappeared. It really bothered me and Trevor.

Isabel and Trevor have been avoiding the inevitable since they worked their first assignment together. Trevor had to learn to overcome his grief from losing his fiancé and Isabel carries her past around like a heavy weight. She plays a chameleon for Noelle's team and Trevor gives her hope of a life of normalcy, something she knows she will never have. After their last mission together Isabel took off leaving Trevor with no explanation. Now, he's trying to track her down because he knows they sha ...more
God, this was a gooooood read. Pure fun. There wasn't a second where I thought this is boring or too melodramatic, the way romantic suspense novels can be. We finally get to see a bit more of Derek and, let me tell you, it was hawt! And I was left craving for more!! And Trevor. At times he was behaving like a Neanderthal, crazy jealous and possessive and made me furious, but then he said something sweet or did something extraordinary and it was impossible for me to hate him.

I am FINALLY getting around to getting caught up on this series!

This OTP has been 3 books in the making, and holy hell, was it worth the wait! This book had it all: action, suspense, feels, and swoon. I didn't want it to end.

Elle Kennedy can do no wrong in my eyes. This is the 7th book of hers that I've read, and she is just consistently amazing. I'm fully engaged from start to finish, and I am always eager for more once I'm done.

Her books are like crack, and I'm ready for my next fix.

After two books as sub-characters, Trevor and Isabel finally get their own novel, and I'm not disappointed.

At the end of the last book, Isabel bailed on Trevor without a word, leaving him waiting for her in a hotel room. It's been five months since that event and Iz has managed to avoid him the entire time. When she finally goes to meet him, the team compound gets attacked and she joins up with him and the rest to figure out who was responsible, b

“Isabel, do you really think I'd sleep with someone who..." He trailed off, suddenly feeling awkward.
"Someone who what?"
Trevor let out a ragged breath. "Who isn't you."
Her mouth formed a cute little O.
"You are the one I want," he reiterated.”
“You're so beautiful," he told her.
Her laughter tickled his ears. "You realize you're looking at my back, right?"
"Mmm-hmmm. And it's a very beautiful back.”
