OH MY FREAKING GOD, I LOVED THIS BOOK! It has the perfect mix of romance, action, and the paranormal world to make this a really brilliant read for me.

Rolling orange fire silhouetted him from behind, backlighting the warrior’s broad shoulders and casual, long-legged stride. As he strolled away from the inferno, the ends of his loose black coat winged out behind him like a cape befitting the prince of darkness himself.
“Holy hell,” Brock murmured. “Tegan.”

If I were a vampire, I would totally want to go around killing assholes. It would be awesome to cure society's ills every time I wanted a snack. Maybe I'd even make some sort of spandex suit with a giant V on the front and be some sort of superhero vigilante. That would be sweet.

And, have you ever noticed how wealthy vampires in all these books seem to be? They live in mansions, drive cars that cost more than my house, wear designer everything... and yet they don't have jobs. What the hell?

This is one of those reviews where I have to eat my words. I have to say that I really grew to like Elise. I didn't think I would care for her as a heroine after the last book in the series, Kiss of Crimson. But I found that I liked and respected her. She has lost a lot, but rose like a phoenix from the ashes. She made herself strong, even though she was raised like a delicate flower in the Chase family, told what to think, how to act, and what she should do with her life.

Elise suffers terribly

After my disappointment with the last book I read in Adrain's Breedmate series, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go on. However, Tegan's character intrigued me from the get go so I couldn't let his book go unread.

Elise Chase suffered remarkable loss in recent years. The loss of her beloved mate hurt her tremendously- but it was the loss of their son that devastated her. Determined to avenge his death, she transforms herself from a sheltered aristocrat to an emotionless hunter who will stop at nothin

Wow.....just WOW!

Until now, if anyone asked, I would have said that Lara Adrien's Midnight Breed series was good but not great. I would've said that it paled in comparison to Ward's BDB. I would've said that it wasn't anything really special. Now, I stand corrected. Midnight Awakening was something really special and I couldn't put it down!

What made this book different from the previous two was the incredible off the charts chemistry between Tegan and Elise. The previous books waited too long to

Elise ✘ a.k.a Ryder's Pet ✘
I could have enjoyed this book. A lot. But I had struggles with connecting with the characters, specially Elise Chase (how old is she?). Though she was cool, stubborn, naive and loyal, I still felt like I was on the outside looking in when it comes it Elise. Still not over the fact that she has the same as me.
He was the ghost you never saw coming, death breathing down your neck before you even realized you were in the crosshairs.

Quick Take: Loved it! My fave so far. The two leads were a great and compelling match. I'd recommend having read book two before jumping into the series with this book.

I'm glad to note that thus far, I've enjoyed each Midnight Breed book more than the last. Granted, I've only finished three installments now, but the direction of the trend is a very promising one. In this story we're treated to a closer look at Tegan, the most closed and inaccessible of the Breed warriors. Up to now he's seemed s

Audiobook.

2.5 stars.

Apart from the beginning and the very end, this book bored me and left me frustrated. The author’s style does not suit me. She is quite wordy and uses a lot of narrative. I wanted more dialogue and more action. The author also spent too much time on past protagonist pair-ups. I did not need the level of detail she gave on how they got together. It would’ve been sufficient to say "this is what’s his name and what’s his name’s girlfriend with X superpower."

Each book of the Midnight Breed series gets exponentially better than the one before it. I found that Dante and Tess were a perfect pair in Kiss of Crimson, but Tegan and Elise have just topped them in my eyes.

I’m always drawn to the guys who are cold-hearted and loners and perhaps that’s why Tegan caught my eye from the very beginning. There’s something so raw and powerful about him that you wish you can get close enough to get to know him. But that’s the thing with these types of characters. T

5 stars - Vampire Romance

Midnight Awakening focuses on the unlikely relationship that develops between brooding Breed warrior Tegan and Darkhaven widow Elise. Tegan is dark, volatile, solitary, sexy, and surprisingly tender. This is probably the steamiest book in the series due to the great chemistry and sexual tension between Tegan and Elise. I loved this book! The Midnight Breed series rocks!

Welcome to the world of Breed warriors, a group of vampires who have sworn to protect the civilian race of vampires and humans from rogues who have lost their senses to the disease of bloodlust. Bloodlust is the equivalent of a human being addicted to drugs, and all that these rogue vamps can think of is the undying need to quench their thirst. It has started a war that seems to have no end. This is the 3rd book in the Breed series.

This is about Tegan a Gen One( first generation vamp) the deadli

Out of the three novels, I can't decide which I liked more. If forced to choose, however, I'd have to say this one is my favourite... so far.

More excellent actions scenes that have you holding your breath. More erotic sex scenes that leave you just as breathless as the characters...

I'm so unbelievably happy for Tegan and Elise, happy that they found each other, happy that they found the love that was lacking. After all they'd been through, they so deserve each other.

It's official. I love the Breed! After finding the previous two books a little lacking it was so satisfying to see Adrian finally hit it out of the park with Tegan and Elise. The couple is matched perfectly. Both of them have lost mates due to the war with the Rogues. Most recently, Elise also lost her son to the drug Crimson. They know pain loss and Tegan especially understands Elise's need to kill as many Minions as she can. He's been filled with the same need for the past five hundred years.

This is probably the best of the Breeds series so far. Hmm. Best of Breed. Sounds like a dog show. But I digress.

Tegan and Elise are a great couple for several reasons. I think the biggest one is that we didn't have to go through the whole thing of the female learning what she is. It was nice that she already knew all about the Breeds and everything else was just the story. They were both strong, damaged characters who had no intention of falling in love, but they respected each other right off

(Midnight Breed,#3) The relationship between hardcore Breed warrior Tegan and beautiful Darkhaven widow Elise Chase was steamy and compelling, stemming from admiration and common purpose. I loved Elise’s transformation from composed and gentle to tough and vengeful. The story is nicely done, very suspenseful, and seems to lead the series in a new direction. Great ending!

This is the 3rd book in the Midnight Breed series and I have liked this one the best so far. Tegan is an old vampire, a generation one. Elise is the formaer Breedmate to a Darkhaven breed who was killed. He son was killed in the last book, "Kiss of Crimson". Just the interaction as Tegan and Elise fight their feelings for one another is great. Now off to reaad Number4

Midnight Awakening was incredible! This book was different than the first two, in a good way. Even though I loved Kiss of Midnight and Kiss of Crimson, Midnight Awakening is a very powerful story with two amazing main characters.

The MCs are super important for me (and for everyone I guess), but most of the time, I don’t love the MCs the same. I always prefer the hero. But in this book, I really loved them both. Tegan and Elise are awesome and their story was so good! I’ve said it before and I’ll

The Midnight Breed series is something that requires patience.

On the first book you get a rough story, with not much of a plot line and lots of unexplained details. The heroine, Gabrielle, is nothing interesting, the conflicts are not well justified and the hero's nine hundred years of past are just boring.

The second book gets a little better. The heroine is more charming with a better constructed past, an amazing breedmate ability but still a little annoying. Dante, the hero, is less conflict

What a surprise. I'm not a big fan of Adrian, but this was her best book yet.

You've got a race of "vampires" who're descended from some aliens who crashed on earth some centuries ago. Vampires are always male and can only mate with human females called Breedmates, who possess unique psychic talents. The closer in descent a vampire is to the original aliens, the more powerful he is and the more susceptible to sunlight. In addition, vampires always have to resist the temptation of giving in to Blo

This is the best of the series so far (and I must say that I'm not over-enthusiastic about this series).

I really like the ending and I think what happened is an interesting development, plus we meet Reichen, who is a very fascinating character. As always the focus of the book is on the romance, so there's never a real focus on the Order and I feel the secondary characters are left in the far background. In this book there is a stronger sense of communion in the mates of the warriors than in the
