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.

A Taste of Midnight - Lara Adrian

Super short story. I had to go backwards in the series to catch it, so it was interesting hearing about what was happening in Boston with Chase gone rogue while knowing how everything ended up playing out later down the road. Not sure how I missed this one but glad to have read it. It was super fast. What helped with the rushed novella feeling was the fact that they have known each other for hundreds of years, but she ended up bonding with his best friend and they lost touch. Now she is a widow with a son and runs back into Malcolm unexpectedly and things rekindle. I enjoyed it. Didn’t mind the rushed feeling with the back story to help make things make sense.

For 100 Reasons
For 100 Reasons - Lara Adrian,Summer Morton,Alexander Cendese
100 Series, Book 3

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series

The Characters:

Dominic “Nick” Baine:
Avery Ross:


The Story:

I didn’t think their drama could get any deeper and man should Nick thank his lucky stars that Avery loves him. She should have walked away several times. If I had to pick a theme for this book it would be forgiveness because a lot of it goes on. New hurts, old wounds and all the scrapes and bruises in between.

I know when this series was originally planned it was going to be a trilogy but I wonder in the following years has Ms Adrian changed her mind or thought about expanding it. I would love to follow Nick and Avery in their next steps. I think the chances are slim though because we got a great ending to the trilogy and I’m happy to have read it all.

Writing: Very good.
Forward Motion: Perfect. I never felt a lull. (Lulls and filler are the worst)
Overall Interest: I was riveted
Length of Reading Time: Average
Re-read-ability: probably not

The Random Thoughts:



The Score Card:
