Out of all the stone-cold mercenaries in Jim Morgan's black ops organization, Derek “D” Pratt is the most intimidating. He is tight-lipped and covered in tattoos, and even the o ...more

His eyes narrowed as he advanced on her. Like a predator. Because he was a predator. A ruthless soldier, lethal and impassive, and yet right now, she didn't mind being the prey. If she were being honest, she preferred it.
Clearly I've been living under a rock somewhere because that would be the only explanation for why this amazing series by one of my favorite authors is only hitting my radar now. Romantic Suspense is one of my favorite genres, and as such, I've read a lot of it. So th ...more
Derek Pratt, or “D” as everyone calls him was the toughest character in the team. Unfeeling and remote is how he came off, although I think there was a little hinting of feeling here and there over the series. For the most part his past and life has been a mystery, but I just knew something horrific had to happen to shape him. It was bad!! Sickening ...more
Midnight Revenge focuses on hardcore mercenary: D (Derek) and Mexico-based doctor: Sofia. D is an @sshole through and through but you know what they say about mean people. The meaner a person is, the more wounded he/she probably is on ...more
In many ways Midnight Revenge reminded me of the movie Sicario.Man, that movie. I don't think I'll ever be able to watch it again.
They share the gruesome background, the difficult subjects they approach, a hardened main character, who's seen too much shit in his life to be fazed by anything good or bad happening around him, action so intense you're constantly on the edge of your seat, biting your nails, waiting for whatever happens next. Unlike Sicario, t ...more
Midnight Revenge is the seventh book in the Killer Instincts series. This is my second book in the series I have read. Each book are standalones and focuses on a different character. I love Elle Kennedy and I love how she can write different genres. I love an action pack read because there is always a broody male and a damsel.
D is not a nice guy. I really like that. He’s tough, abrasive and filled with secrets. He cares about his team, but he doesn’t care for female relationsh ...more
Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.
Aaaa assassins! Fast paced and action packed. Kennedy rocks romantic suspense. Hard. And gah I love this series. Midnight Revenge was one I was curious about because it's the D's story. The mercenary even the other badass mercenaries give space. The quick of it is that Derek has done some bad shit in his life and it's come back to haunt him. Unfortunately it's not just his life that's been turned upside down. One of his teammates was mistaken for D an ...more
I read every line of it and uttered different iterations of "Wha...?" and "Huh?" and "But when did...?" and then I read the last line and I just gave up.
This may be the first time in my reading history that I have to read a book just to understand its sequel's synopsis.....AND I HAVE NEVER LOOKED FORWARD TO A BOOK MORE!
D is that asshole you love to hate and you hate that you love, all wrapped up in one scarily bad-ass, sexy, insane, (secretly-emotionally-v ...more
Midnight Revenge focuses on one of the more mysterious members of Jim Morgan's black ops team: Derek "D" Pratt. Derek is a dark character. He's seen lots of nasty things during his career and he doesn't do relationships. Until he meets Sofia.
Midnight Revenge is the seventh book in the series. While it can be read ...more
I’m just going to be straight here… I NEVER Loved D. He always was so abrasive and rude and just absolutely not the guy I find myself falling for in these kinds of books. So to say I was a little hesitant to read this book would be an understatement.
But how on earth am I supposed to resist and early copy of an Elle Kennedy book? Much less one from this series? The answer obviously is that I couldn’t.
If you’ve read the other books in this series, you know Derek has secrets. Secrets abo ...more
This series is really awesome and I have got to make time to catch up and read the beginning of this series. I started this series weird and dove in with Midnight Captive because the allure of an Ireland setting drew me in. I adored that book, so when I had the chance to read Midnight Revenge I jumped on it and I am so glad I did. This was a great read from beginning to end.
I loved D! He was so cranky and I loved the cranky. It truly amused me to w ...more
I haven't read any of the other books not sure if I will. Not because I didn't like this one, I did but I'm not sure if I'm interested in the previous stories. I do know of the 5 pages Noelle was in I hated her. So if she's in the others it'll just bug the shit out of me because she was a freaken
I'm not interested in her being a badass assassin, who falls in ...more
He began to laugh. Low, humorless laughter that brought a chill to the already cold cell. “You think if you know what happened to me you’ll magically be able to figure me out? Fix me? Baby, nobody can fix me. I’m broken beyond repair.”
Derek “D” Pratt is the coldest, most ruthless of Jim Morgan’s black-ops organization. He doesn’t care about anything or anyone. I‘ve been looking forward to his book for ages. And he sure lived up to all my expectations ;-)
Sophia is the doctor who treats Jim’s...more
This was my second favorite installment after Midnight Action because Derek Pratt was such an enigma. He was the coldest mercenary that works for Jim Morgan. I had been waiting for D’s book for a long time. I will admit that I wanted Jim Morgan to share Noelle with D, but that may be too much for some people, LOL! NO SHARING happened at all. There was no triangle! I was really pleased that this story focused more on the search for Sully more than the relationship between D and Sofia. T ...more
I'm not a fan of Kennedy lately *cough* The Mistake and The Score*cough* but THIS SERIES. This fucking series is gold! I was eager to read Derek's story and it didn't dissapoint. He's so cute! I mean, he's still a badass and most of the time a asshole, but he can also be so sweet.
(view spoiler)[Even though I was sad to see him leave the compound to go live with Sofia. But I guess it makes sense. (hide spoiler)]
Now give me Liam and Sully' story. Please! It was heartbreaking to see ...more

Derek Pratt is one of Jim Morgan’s mercenaries. He is cold and unfeeling, and does the job at hand, no questions or feelings for anyone around him. When it’s time for him to rescue one of their own who has been captured after a case of mistaken identity, D goes in rogue. He can handle it since he’s the one they want. That is, until his world is thrown for a loop!
I started the Killer Instinct series after loving The Deal by Elle Kennedy last year and quickly became obsessed and read through the books pretty fast. Though I thoroughly enjoyed most of the books, I was particularly excited for Midnight Revenge because of the main character, Derek. With his cold and unfeeling demeanor, there was just something about him I found intriguing and I couldn't wait for Elle Kennedy to peel the layers of his character. Midnight Revenge was everything that I could ask ...more

Get ready for a dark, gritty, heart-pounding suspense tale mixed with red-hot romance in Midnight Revenge . Elle Kennedy pulls out all the stops as stone-cold mercenary Derek “D” Pratt is thrown for a loop in this enthralling seventh Killer Instincts novel.
I didn’t expect to love D. Out of all of Morgan’s men, D has long been the most hardened, closed-off, scary mercenary of the bunch. I found him interesting befor ...more
Elle Kennedy takes a beloved series to another level with MIDNIGHT REVENGE.
The suspense is on point, the passion is intense and the sex is insane!
If you have to be locked in a cartel prison with anyone, hells to the YEAH would I pick Derek "D" Pratt. The man wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma...that is "D". I think that is why I have always loved "D", ever since MIDNIGHT ACTION (my first read..and then I went and read all the rest...like that week), he was sex on a stick with a bad attitude ...more
I have been waiting for what seems like FOREVER to get a chance to read D's book, and of course, Elle Kennedy did not disappoint.
As with the other books in this series, Midnight Revenge packed nail-biting suspense, captivating dialogue, page-melting sensuality, and an amazing plot that made me want to keep reading until the last page (and beyond).
I'm further convinced that Elle Kennedy can do no wrong.
I am eagerly anticipating the next book!
I really like the MCs, especially D. And he stays true to character through the whole story. (Yes I did skim to the end... which was sweet btw).
But EVERYONE ELSE in the book got on my last nerve! Especially that Noelle chick. Either the characters weren't very bright, or they were a-holes (like Noelle).
So NO, I wil ...more
If you read my review for Midnight Captive, you know how much I was looking forward to this book. Not as much because it was Derek's book (because he's really never been one of my favorites) but because I HAD TO KNOW what happened to Sully. I went into this book flat-out terrified about what would wind up happening to Sully and on the edge of my seat, hoping for the best.
I'm not entirely sure what I expected of Derek's backstory – and his present ...more
