Why I Started This Book:

 I’ve read great things about this series. My first book from Lara Adrian and she is already on my favorite authors list. I do love some vampires books, and when they’re sexy is a plus.


Insatiable desire. Endless Seduction. One touch is just the beginning
He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night–or this man–is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed–a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind–and the unwitting humans existing alongside them–from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands.

Here, in the arms of the Breed’s formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all…


My Thoughts:

 Lucan is irresistible, a sexy, very old, with a dark past and secrets off his on. The book explain about the past and how Lucan has dealt with his father and others vampires aliens. That’s right, the first vampires were originally aliens and after arriving on earth and starting to destroy the population by their bloodlust and sexual desires.

Lucan was a son from this aliens vampires, and is considered a gen one vampire, from first genaration. After seeing what the aliens were capable off, he created a group of Breed to destroy this evil from earth.

Years after that he is still part of that group, and continuous to protect the humans and others Breed from Rogues, vampires who gave in to the blodlust, that way killing they’re victin after drinking their blood.

One night during a patrol in the city Lucan destroy a group of rogues outside a party and that’s when he meets Gabrielle.

Gabrielle has been out with her friends celebrating the big sucess of her pictures, when she watchs a group of rogues killing a human, and after that her life is in dangerous cause they know she is not just a human.

Lucan needs to watch over Gabrielle to make sure she stays alive, and thats when they start to have fellings for each other. Lucan fights against it, because of his past and Gabrielle discover a new world a very different life, and start to understand the danger of everything.

I loved how this book introduced the other members of the group and this is a very recommended serie.

You Might Enjoy This Book If:

The thruth is that I find this series is very simmilar with Black Dagger Brotherhood, both are vampires and fight to keep humans without knowing their existance but keep then save. At least that’s what I think. But I like them both.

Favorite Quotes:

 You just promised me eternity, you know. I can make you live to regret it.

 Maybe she should cut the guy a little slack, […] Maybe Thorne had been a no-show because something bad happened to him on the job.

What if he’d been injured in the line of duty and didn’t come by as promised because he was incapacitated in some way? Maybe he hadn’t called to apologize or to explain his absence because he physically couldn’t.

Right. And maybe she had checked her brain into her panties from the second she first laid eyes on the man.

One thought on “Review: Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian

  1. UK says:

    This book was too sexual for me. I read up to chapter 7 and put the book down for good. I like reading romance novels, but this was just…very different. Her wording was very blunt about things, and just didn't read well. I also didn't like that she made her vampires aliens. I'm not really into the science fiction thing.
