4/5 Review: Midnight Fire by Lisa Marie Rice




Jack Delvaux is alive
Summer Redding thought the blindingly handsome jock who'd loved and left her years ago had died in the Washington Massacre. She grieved for her lost golden boy as the rest of the country mourned their dead—until she comes home to find a very alive Jack Delvaux waiting for her with a devastating secret that turns her life upside down.
No longer the carefree man he was in his youth, this Jack is dark, hard and dangerous; a fifteen-year veteran of the CIA hungry for answers…and hungry for her. The rich, good-looking charmer who broke her heart once before would have been easy to resist, but this man, this powerful man? Summer needs him, and he knows it.
When Jack's mission uncovers evidence of government involvement in the Massacre—and plans for another attack—he's primed for revenge. But he has more than vengeance to live for now, and when Summer's life is threatened, it's nearly Jack's undoing. Someone taking shots at his woman? That's a dead man walking.

**********

This is the 4th installment of Lisa Marie Rice's Men of Midnight Series - we met Jack in book 3 - He was a mystery for the most part part but we did learn who he was. I'll continue by saying although it's a series - it stands okay on it's own but I would at least read book 3 (which is the only other book I have read). Both of the main characters Jack and Summer are introduced in Midnight Secrets) Midnight Fire has it all - Mystery, Suspense, a hell of a lot of romance and then throw in the continuing plot to topple the US Government.

Midnight Fire is Jack's story - he is trying to avenge his families murder along with 700 innocent souls, along with him trying to win back Summer's heart, and enlist her in his mission and protect her from the crazies. We know from Secrets that Jack was presumed dead in the Washington Massacre. He was a CIA agent that had been privy to some information regarding China. Jack has been hiding since the Massacre and investigating who had the motive and stood to gain the most if the US was no more. Can Jack bring them all to their knees?

Summer is a friend of Jack's sister and she fell in love with him when she was only 12 years old. Jack ignored her until they had one glorious week together when she was a freshman in college, then Jack broke her heart. While attending a funeral for Hector Black, the villian from Secrets, Summer thinks she recognizes Jack who is disguised as a homeless veteran. Jack saves Summer from almost being killed. 

Can Jack keep Summer safe? Can Summer's heart give him one more chance? If you are in the market for a lovely suspense driven romance - I highly recommend this series.
