I am so a Midnight breed fan girl. This book is one of my 4 favorites in this series! Nathan takes his place along side Lucan and Gabrielle, Tegan and Elise, and Hunter and Corinne. (I just realized all my favs are gen ones!) In this book we get to see an all grown up sexy Nathan (Corinne's son and Hunter's step son). Stolen from his mother as a baby and turned into a emotionless killing machine. He was saved by his mother and her mate when he was a young teen but he never truly heal

Nathan finally found love, and it was wonderful!!!

His greenish blue eyes were steady and unblinking beneath the military-short cut of his jet black hair.

This book moved the series forward in ways that I felt were lacking in the last few installments. It did for the series what I thought Edge of Dawn would introduced a lot of characters more in depth and really delved into the gist of this new direction for the Midnight Breed series.

Nathan is a Gen One male, and I've always had a soft spot for those poor boys since we met Hunter a few books back. Nathan has been with the Order for awhile now, so he has a few social skills but at his core,

She was stepping off that ledge tonight, falling too fast.
Falling too hard for a lethal, untouchable Breed male who'd promised her nothing.
She knew this, the same way she understood that if reality waited for her at the bottom of this mad leap, it was certain to break her.

NOOOOOOO. It's the "Phury" book of the series. I knew there was going to have to be one, but why did it have to be Nathan's book? *cry*

But every time I tried to read something else, a nagging feeling kept coming back to remind me that I was almost done with the currently in-print books of this series.

I enjoy coming back to this series and getting a dose of paranormal through the Midnight Breed. I really like that I was able to get the audiobook for this story because reading time has been cut down lately, so listening still allows me to get my reading fix. With that said, this is going to be a short review.

Nathan was taken as a baby and brought up as a Hunter, a cold hearted killer taught not to feel mercy or compassion. He was later rescued when he was thirteen. Now all grown up he
This is book #12 in the Midnight Breed series and I still love this series! It has been awhile since I have visited the paranormal genre but dang it...I sure have missed parts of it! I forgot how passionate and erotic vampires can be! LOL The fireworks between Nathan and Jordana was nothing short of amazingly hot and I got butterflies reading their encounters! I love that Lara Adrian has taken this series to a new level with the new generation of Breed Males and new villians as well. It has a fr ...more

So the series is going on after all. Well, seeing how the previus book is going, the children are all grown up and ready to have their books. But let me say this. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! Now this is my huge vote on the series should have stopped at Chase's book. Then if we are going to start reading the future and the kids come into play, a new series should start.

This was one of the best Midnight Breed books so far for me. I admit that I don't remember much of the series so that's telling all of each own.

We have...

-A badass male lead.
-A protected but badass-to-be female protagonist.
-Immortal baddies with a grudge.
-A group of Immortal warrior vampires(which we all know is sexy as hell).
-We also have insta-love but I blame some kind of fate shit and get over it.

Crave The Night is the twelfth installment in Lara Adrian's paranormal romance series titled: Midnight Breed. This is the first time I have read a book by Ms. Adrian and it is the first book I have read in this particular series. As noted on a fellow goodreads member's review, each book in this series can apparently be read as a standalone novel despite its series setup, so that's what I did. This new release was available at my library and I grabbed it. Plus, it was recommended on a literary ma ...more

If I don't count a novella Marked by Midnight, the last full length book I've read from this series was Edge of Dawn and it was four years ago! So, the occasional info dump here was appreciated. That has to be the first time.

I still find the world of Midnight Breed interesting. Crave the Night was an okay story with a solid story and some very annoying things. It takes place only three days after the events in Edge of Dawn, where a new enemy of the Breeds and humans is introduced. That plays

Disclosure time: This used to be one of my favourite series back in the day, when I used to love reading paranormal romance.

Unfortunately lately I've become a little tired of the characters and plots' predictability. Truth is, we more or less know what is going to happen by the end of this type of story. And there's nothing wrong with that: I have numerous boo

I hate giving a book in this series anything less than 5 stars but for me Crave The Night wasn't an amazing book. It had a few of my pet-peeves .
Although it wasn't my favorite in the series , still it was an interesting and enjoyable read .

I really enjoyed the first half of the book unfortunately it went downhill for me from there.

It took me a while to warm up to this book. I have made no secret of the fact that I am not a fan of D/s themes; in fact, I actively avoid them. Unless, of course, there is no indication in the blurb that it’s going to be in the book. Guess what? All that tortured hero angst I was looking forward to from our steely Nathan, manifests itself –wait for it– by an overwhelming need to dominate and an inability to accept a loving touch.

I am going to admit I have never read a book from Lara Adrian and I am sorry that I have missed out on her books. But no more- I plan to devour the books in this series and anything else Ms. Adrian writes. Jordana and Nathan are from completely different sides of society. She is privileged and from a prominent Breed family and he is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence, he is from an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires.

Crave the Night was another enjoyable read in this long running series. I loved Nathan. Although it has been over 20 years since his rescue the coldness and not allowing himself emotional closeness has never left him, until Jordana. I thought she was perfect for him, her innocence and her caring ways are exactly what he needed. I'm also loving the direction of this series with the Atlanteans.

4 Stars

Crave the Night continues the reboot of the series with the focus shifting to the second generation of Breed warriors. In the aftermath of the thwarted attack against the peace summit, the Order searches for information on their newest enemy, the Atlanteans. Squad leader, Nathan (son of Corinne in book #9) finds himself in an unthinkable position as his attraction to beautiful yet innocent Jordana Gates threatens his ability to concentrate on his mission.

Nothing beats good writing and that is what ultimately makes Lara Adrian stand out amongst her peers. In the twelfth book of the Midnight Breed series, Adrian takes an emotionless Breed warrior named Nathan and pairs him with a kind-hearted socialite named Jordana Gates. As a warrior, Nathan wishes to keep his distance from Jordana’s delicate world. However, when a fiery kiss ignites a consuming passion he has never felt for anyone before, Nathan finds resisting Jordana to be a losing battle
Vanessa theJeepDiva
The Midnight Breed books are by far my favorite vampire paranormal romance series. With Adrian flashing forward twenty years with the events at the end of Darker After Midnight she has allowed her readers to keep up with their favorite past couples by now reading their adult children. Nathan is the grown child we first met in Deeper Than Midnight. He is a grown man now and a squad captain within the Order.
Knowing Nathan’s origins you know he is going to have some damage. Yes he did some growing
Like some of my friends that have read this book, I enjoyed the story and agree that the couple did the smouldering look across a crowded room but didn't actually interact. It was a shame really, could of been a 5 star book but it lacked a connection between the H/h, other than the sexual one.

Enjoyed the little cameos of previous H/h couples.

Will continue reading the series.

Ok I have to start by saying I love this series about the Breed and their breed mates and have followed all these stories avidly. It's a series that has seen vampires living amongst humans secretly but these are truly otherworldly creatures as these vampires are descended from ancient alien warriors. It's been an incredible journey as the Warriors of the breed have fought with those amongst their own race who seek to achieve world domination and finally humans are aware of their existence.

Born into a violent life of absolute obedience, Nathan now leads a team for the Order in their ongoing battle to protect vampires and mortals. He uses his assassin training mercilessly against his enemies and prides himself for being able to keep his emotions in check. That is until a kiss from a high society darling threatens to shatter his self-control. Ever since her impulsive kiss, Jordana's life of privilege and careful planning feels so dull. Her feelings for Nathan scare her and his deman ...more

I did it again. I am one of those people who like to do things in the proper order. I like to follow the rules and do what I am supposed to be doing. So why do I keep jumping around instead of reading a series in the proper order? To be honest, I already know this answer. The problem is that I
