Deeper than Midnight is the ninth book in the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian.
If you have not read this series then what in the hell is wrong with you? Walk, no RUN and get these books immediately!
This book pics RIGHT up where we left off with Brock and this time the focus is on Hunter. In the last book, Brock had saved Corinne after over seventy-five years of abuse she suffered under Dragos. Corinne wants nothing more than to go home and see her family and start learning how to live her life. Hunter, the former weapon owned by Dragos, has volunteered to take her back to her family.
Hunter is drawn to Corinne, which is surprising because Hunter has never "felt" before. He was trained to only be an assassin. No feelings. No emotions. NADA. Watching Hunter struggle with his emotions and feelings was an interesting read. I will say, I was surprised with how quickly the two of them realized their feelings for each other. I would have appreciated more relationship development in that area. I'm still left with the question of why they really liked each other.
This story also focused on Chase. While Chase's story is critical to Deeper than Midnight, and his story is next in this series, dammit, I wanted more Hunter!
The ending of this book left me with a, "oh no she didn't just cliffhanger me!" feeling, I still highly recommend it. I also recommend getting a calendar to mark off the days when the next book comes out.
