Claimed in Shadows - Lara Adrian

Aric Chase is kind of like royalty in the Order as son to Stirling “Harvard” Chase and Tavia. He has worked his way up the ranks and wants nothing more than to run his own team. On his way back from England, he is ordered to take a detour in Montreal in order to aid in an operation only a Daywalker, like him, can do. He is teamed up with Order rookie Kaya who is also dedicated to earning her spot in the Order. They butt heads at first and she doesn’t think much of him. He is a rich charmer that comes across as not having to work too hard for anything in his life, while she grew up poor on the streets and had a rough life until she fell in with the Order. While on their mission, things don’t go as planned and she thinks she has ruined all chance for her to earn a spot on a team. Aric is definitely drawn to her but he isn’t looking for any sort of entanglements, especially not a Breedmate, so he tries to keep his distance but the spirit and drive he sees in Kaya appeals to the same traits he has to accomplish his goals. They work together to try and stop Opus Nostrum and their war against the Breed, but with every lead they discover, someone beats them to it and kills the suspect violently. As more leads die it becomes apparent that they have a mole and Aric can’t help but see that Kaya isn’t being honest with him and is growing more and more distant. It isn’t until it is almost too late to stop the attack that she comes clean about her secrets. It was enjoyable and entertaining. Action packed and passionate. I feel really sorry about his best friend Rafe so I really hope his book is next and whomever he ends up with will definitely have a battle to earn his trust after what happened to him in this book. So good. Want more.

Midnight Unbound - Lara Adrian

The novella focuses on the Hunter, Scythe, and a widow named Chiara. It is set in Italy, on a vineyard no less, and these two come together to deal with a stalker who broke into her home and attacked her. Scythe is called into deal with the threat and he really doesn’t want to do it. He is attracted to Chiara and her son Pietro, but he lost a woman and son he cared about many years ago and he refuses to get involved in another pair in danger. He grudgingly agrees and they go back to her home to wait and catch the stalker because they know he will come again. Scythe tries to avoid Chiara and Chiara is frustrated with his cold demeanor, but she can’t help being drawn to him as well. Their story was enjoyable. It is a novella but their relationship was started in another book so the quickness of the relationship was believable and not quick at all. The plot was entertaining and the conflict was strong. I liked the characters and the struggles they faced in order to have a happily ever after. I enjoyed it.

Born of Darkness - Lara Adrian

First in a new series that follows the genetically created Hunters from Dragos' assassin project brings us Breed warriors who have only known cruelty, loneliness, death, and fear. Asher is a Breed male living out in the middle of the desert content with his quiet, lonely, yet peaceful life on his ranch. He doesn’t like going out where people reside and when he is heading home from just one of those supply trips and sees a kid getting manhandled by a trio of goons he really doesn’t want to get involved, but he does. What he doesn’t expect is a short spit-fire young woman who won’t stop talking and ends up being a Breedmate. He still wants nothing to do with her, but is honor bound to protect her. When she steals his truck in the middle of the day, he is hell bent to teach her a valuable lesson and save her from the casino boss she is stealing money from.

Naomi has known pain and sorrow and wants vengeance against the casino boss who murdered her mom. She also wants to keep helping the street kids her and her best friend having been helping for going on 18 years, ever since they met on the streets themselves when they were 8 years old. The audacity of the Breed male who thinks to send her off the a Dark Haven for her own good has another thing coming if he thinks she will just go meekly away.

Their story was intense, fast paced, entertaining, and very passionate. When Asher’s truth comes out about the role he played in the Hunter program, she has a hard time coming to terms with it all. I’m glad she got her vengeance and I am also glad Asher found himself a home and family. Enjoyed their story and look forward to more.

Here a story thread, there a story thread!
Deeper Than Midnight - Lara Adrian

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 building and was completely into all the arc and threads coming together and weaving in and out. I was pretty disappointed in this as Hunter's story though. As I said, we barely see his and Corinne's romance, and I don't think we got to really delve into his character. 

 

So yeah, read this as just a world-building bridge in the series and the continuing war against Dragos and definitely not for the romance.

Stroke of Midnight: A Midnight Breed Novella (1001 Dark Nights) - Lara Adrian

This novella was fast, but I liked the added adventure that broke it up a bit. Both characters went into it not wanting anything from the other except distance while they fulfilled their family obligations. But once alone with no distractions, things heat up and when he comes to know how strong and selfless she truly is he can’t help but see her with new eyes and want what he never thought would be his. When he risks his life to save her and how he was so willing to help her with her humanitarian aid, she saw him for who he truly was and couldn’t help but want the fairy tale too. It was a fun story. It is a novella so it was rushed and they didn’t know each other before they met up in the story so the rushed factor did make it less believable, but no less entertaining.
