Deeper Than Midnight
At eighteen, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of ca ...more
Ok, I just finished the book and Corinne was found in a basement (with other Breedmates) of a Minion who worked at a women's shelter and was helping Dragos. Corinne and Brock re-kindled their friendship but Brock chose Jenna in the end. Another person was murdered and was set up to look like Corinne.(less)

Deeper Than Midnight was so damn Good! OMG Hunter hands down is my favorite hero in the whole series so far. I just want to lick him all over! I mean OMG seriously he was so dayum yummy and kickass and just all around amazing. A stone cold killer, He thought he had all his emotions beat out of him,until he met Corinne. One of my favorite things to read is Ice men melting for the love of a woman. So needless to say Breed born assassin Hunter gave me all ...more

Deeper than Midnight.
What is going on with numerous reviews and fellow GR peeps telling me that this wasn’t all it was expected to be? Personally I think you should all give your selves a slap in the face. I will excuse this infringement and say you all have been in a book funk, because I thought this book rocked.
It was easily one of my fav breed stories, not the best but pretty darn close. I went back and looked at my review for the last Breed novel that was released and I was not so much of a ...more

What I Loved:
~I wasn’t confused at all. The author did a great job of refreshing my memory of the past storylines.
~Great sexual tension. Hunter and Corinne were beautiful together.
~It was partly set in Louisiana. I bet Amelie can make a bitchin’ pot of gumbo!
~Getting more insight on the history of Gideon and Savannah’s relationship. I would love to be able to read more about how they fell in love.
~Getting to meet Xander Rap ...more

Corinne Bishop, was once a young woman living with privelege. She was adopted into a loving family, and she had a whole life ahead of her. But then the worst happened, she was taken, imprisoned, raped and tortured for years. Finally, she was rescued by the Order and she then meets the man who is to take her back home to her parents. Hunter joined the Order after leaving the only life he had ever known working for Dragos and foun ...more
I wouldn't go so far as to say that Deeper Than Midnight was on the same level as the BDB's story of Z and Bella, but I loved Hunter's journey here for a few of the same reasons that I loved Z's.
There is something about a broken man who needs a woman to draw him out of his shell which speaks to me. Hunter was not a part of the world; he was just existing, doling out vengeance whenever he could. Corinne came along and showed Hunte ...more
Hunter, of course! What is not to love about this strong, silent "Hero" Even though ...more
I do have to say that you really have to just go with the flow on their relationship. I did f ...more
You absolutely can't read this as a stand-alone; the continuing fight of the Order against Dragos comes to ahead here.
The main couple of Hunter and Corinne are honestly only 10-15% of the story, the majority is bringing the Order and Dragos to ahead. This is done through many different POVs, with Lucan and Sterling Chase being the majority. Sterling Chase fighting going Rogue, is a good 30% of this with him almost feeling like the main character (his book is next).
I love the world bui ...more
The book started good but then went downhill from there. The first half I'd rate 3 - 3.5 stars. I liked the earlier parts with Hunter and Corine. I liked the over-arching storyline with the Order and their fight against Dragos. During those sections, I enjoyed seeing characters from the earlier books. However I did not like the other major plotthread about Harvard. It took up way too much of the storyline. I would have rathe ...more
The parallels between what Dragos did to both MC's made for a compelling read. I will say, I wanted more of these two and less POV switches to other characters. That's not something I always mind, as I understand there's a lot of big picture stuff going on in this book, but I felt Hunter's and Corinne's story suffered because of it. Had there been some follow-up in the last chapter regarding th ...more
2 (very grudging) stars for the story
First, I really like this narrator. Her voice is a lower register than typical for a female and she gets raspy sometimes. It makes for a soothing and interesting listen.
Then, the story. :-( I'm having a hard time even saying "it's ok" for that 2 star rating.
I know I coming across as "the Grinch" lately, or is that actually "the Bitch"? 🤣
There is just so much to this story I didn't like. First and foremost, the heroine. I neither belie ...more
The story was sweet and nice but I wanted more from this amazing hero ... I wanted passion, an explosion of emotions, a heroine who would transform him. Well, Corinne was never that. She was this plain and boring girl who never reacted too strong to anything. I just felt like Hunter changed because he got in love with her but not because of her. ...more
Review: I read the previous book (Taken By Midnight) in 2013 so I was kind of playing catch up while reading this. Adrian recapped all the important stuff throughout the story though so that was handy.
Since starting this series I read J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood which is pretty similar to Midnight Breed. I kept getting the storylines and characters mixed up....
I'm not sure I'll continue with Midnight Breed but I did enjoy this instalment. There seems to be more focus on the main storyli
OK, OK, deep breathe. First, let’s talk about Hunter…
“Born and bred to be a weapon wielded by the merciless hand of the Order’s chief adversary, he was long accustomed to viewing the world in logical, unemotional terms.
He no longer served the villain called Dragos, but his deadly skills remained at the core of who, and what, he was. Hunter was lethal - unfailingly so.”
Ooohh, the enigmati ...more
The reason I was so jazzed about Hunter having a book is because he is both a tortured hero who has never known love, and he’s a virgin. Both are right up my alley. The thi ...more
…His skin felt hot and confining, drawn too tight across his chest, and up along his neck. Lower still, the tightness was worsening by the second, his sex stirring, stiffening with the sudden upticking rush of blood through his veins.
He growled quietly under his breath, though whether from shock or shame, he wasn’t sure. He didn’t want to feel this curiosity for her, this unwelcome sexual awareness. He’d been trained – disciplined without compromise fro ...more
I am so glad that I don't pay attention to the reviews that these (so called readers) post. Believe me when I say I use the term very loosely because many of them I truly believe don't even read the books they comment on. But enough of my ranting and let's get started on my review.

I have been intrigued by Hunter from when we first met him in Nikolai and Renata's ...more

“And now you do?” she asked hesitantly.
