Interior decorator Suzanne Barron's new tenant is the most dangerously sexy man she's ever met. Navy Commander John Huntington, a former SEAL (aka 'Midnight Man') works best under cover of darkness. Within hours of meeting him, Suzanne has wild, no-holds barred sex with John, then panics at the depth of her passionate response to such a powerful and dangerous warrior. Suzanne doesn't do sex like that. John is definitely someone she needs to avoid for her own peace of mind. But when killers come for her, Suzanne knows she can turn to only one man. John will guard and protect her body. But who will guard and protect her body against John?

I couldn't get into this book. It was mostly characters thoughts which were rather melodramatic. After a quarter of the way through, I jumped ahead reading a few pages here and there that had the same style so gave up. Ex-Navy John rents office space from Suzanne and wants to have sex with her.
This series has been on my TBR for a long time. I had high hopes based on the blurb...Sadly, those hopes were dashed. I love a good alpha hero, but John Huntington was just too much for me; a hardened, brash man's man, soldier, warrior with very little social skills and no sense of romance/softness....
My least favorite of the series. John was just too much of a sex addict to make me believe it was love instead of love on his part:(
The hero is an asshat and the heroine a perfect dishrag. I stopped reading at 22%.
Reminded me of another trilogy I enjoyed.
