He’s a former Navy Seal that nearly died after being blown up by an IED while on a mission He was not working due to his injuries when a beautiful sad and beaten down woman moved in next door Isabel Delvaux had recently went through a life changing ordeal Her father and her whole family plus literally 1000’s of people were killed right before her eyes by a terrorist attack Isabel is an empty shell she does not remember what happened due to a serious concussion She’s lost everything and has been verbally attacked by many This is why she changes her name and moves away from what was once her homeJoe has no idea who Isabel really is He’s very attracted to her but he can tell that something horrible has happened to her So instead of hitting on her he goes about helping her move in next door and fixing anything that needs to be fixed In return Isabel cooks for him and leaves him dishes of her fabulous cooking which he shares with his buddies Jacko and Metal With time and the support from Joe and his friends we finally see Isabel slowly coming out of her shell Felicity Metal’s woman who happens to be extremely smart figures out who Isabel really is They wait until she is ready to tell them just what she remembers which is not much Every night she has nightmares and through these nightmares Isabel eventually remembers what happensEvil is still lurking around Isabel so Joe and his friends all pull together to insure that she stays safeJoe and Isabel were PERFECT for each other their chemistry was undeniable Once these two finally got together it was blazing off the pages One of the things I REALLY enjoyed was the characters I truly cared for Joe and Isabel and I loved watching them grow together help each other How Isabel changed during the course of this book it truly was AMAZINGSpeaking of characters I was SO DARN HAPPY that LRM added ALL of the characters from the previous books in this series They all had their rolls some than others but I LOVED that they were includedNear the end is when the action REALLY picks up I was sitting straight up my Kindle glued to my hands Then things got even exciting and I had my hands fisted punching up in the air yelling YES YES YES Needless to say that some of the bad guys got their comeuppance but a few key players were never found or figured out This leave the storyline wide open for the next book in this series Midnight Fire which should be releasing September of this year and WILL be a MUST READ for meIn the end we are treated to a FANTASTIC epilogue that had me grinning from ear to ear The only thing left to say is WELL DONE LISA MARIE RICE I was provided a copy from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange for on honest review

    Nothing new to report here LMR wisely sticks to what she does best a super protective alpha hero comes to the rescue of a seemingly frail and beautiful heroine who somehow finds an inner strength to save herself from the evil that is stalking her Yep that's what 'Midnight Secrets' is all about It may sound familiar since LMR has done this plot over and over with a few variations but I don't care it works for me Joe has a hairy chestanother LMR 'specialty' The alpha hero here is former Navy SEAL Joe Harris who nearly died after being blown up by an IED I'm figuring Joe is in his early 30s and while not exactly at his fighting weight yet of 210 I'm guessing he's pretty easy on the eyes All we know from the kind of vague description is that he's rather lean yet has big shoulders and incredible hands a LMR obsession and has dark hair and eyes Anyway Joe's been rehabbing with friend Metal O'Brien Midnight Promises for the past few months waiting for the doctor's ok to start his new job with John Huntington's Midnight Man Portland Oregon security company Joe's next door waif like neighbor is a woman who's caught his eye the most beautiful woman in the world Isabel LawtonIsabel is trying to start a new life in Portland She's moved cross country from Washington DC after the most horrifyingtragic experience of her life watching her entire extended Kennedy esue family gunned down in what was thought to be a terrorist attack known as the 'Washington Massacre' oh but it's so much Isabel is the lone survivor of her political dynasty Delvaux family her father was about to announce his Presidential bid just before the massacre and is eager to flee the reporters who have been hounding her So she changes her name and goes where no one will notice her so she can put herself together physically and emotionally and start a new life She doesn't count on having the help of an incredibly supportive and hot next door neighbor though Isabel Joe can see that Isabel is a shell of what she once was and offers his support in neighborly ways doing chores around her house driving her places and just looking out for her She repays him the only way she knows how with her fabulous cooking she once had a highly successful food blog and had an all about food book in the works pre Massacre Joe and Isabel develop a sort of friendship He's reluctant to make a move on the still shaky Isabel even though he's mesmerized by her beauty but vows to watch out for her And then he receives an email from a mysterious source warning that Isabel is in dangerand all bets are off Isabel will know what he's all about because no one will get close enough to harm a hair on her headThis was a uick easy read Joe was a delicious hero and Isabel held her own She went through an unspeakable tragedy and the fact that she was able to function after thatthe girl was made of some strong stuff Loved their romance it was hot Loved seeing most of the characters from the previous books in the series either making an appearance or being mentioned Metal and Felicity figure prominently Loved how Isabel was able to stand up to the nasty villain and find her inner warrior even though Joe had to come to the rescue in the end Loved the little surprise twist saw this one coming at the end too sniff And also love that the threat to the country but not to Isabel is still out there and will be dealt with in another book yay Midnight FireSo if you've been reading this series and enjoying it you should like Midnight Secrets Just don't expect anything out of the ordinary plot wise or in the characters This is the formula that works best for LMR's romantic suspense books so just sit back and go with the flow Nothing different but still satisfying 4 12 stars ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley

    The third book in Lisa Marie Rice's Men of Midnight series Joe Harris is recuperating from his injuries sustained while he was a Navy SEAL He has a neighbor that appears to be recuperating herself and he can't help but have those alpha man protective feelings for her Isabel LawtonDelvaux can't remember the day that her entire family was taken away from her but she lives with nightmares nevertheless She finds comfort in cooking and finds pleasure in offering her creations to her neighbor JoeI love this series The first three books in the series were great and I liked the ones that followed but I did feel that the stories paled slightly to the original three I wondered if maybe LMR might be slowly losing her magic touch Well after this book I feel that she got the touch back in full I hated to put this down and I cried when it ended just kidding Anyway I really loved this addition Both main characters had issues but it didn't keep them from connecting Many of the previous characters made appearances in the story which I loved This is a series I would highly recommend


  5. Dina Dina says:

    I'm afraid LMR's writing doesn't do it for me any Too much internal dialog and too many pages dedicated to the bad guys' POV which wasn't particularly different from what I've read and loved in her previous books but somehow I couldn't care less for them in this book Go figure


  6. Kathleen Kathleen says:

    35 or 4 stars for this enjoyable brain candy set in Portland Oregon in winter This series is my guilty secret despite some problems with plotting and writing style ‘There she goes’ Joe Harris thought ‘Isabel Lawton The most beautiful woman in the world and his next door neighbor And she cooked for him Isabel Lawton gorgeous mystery One huge uestion mark And a wounded woman Something bad had happened to her something she never talked about Of course she didn’t talk about much of anything’ It's been five years since a former SEAL and an interior designer first escaped into the night fleeing the mafia in Midnight Man Now John and Suzanne's little girl is four years old and John's security company is staffed with former SEALS All those old familiar faces showed up in this new release along with Nick FBI guy from the preuel and an incognito mystery manHelping Joe and Isabel take down a treasonous mass murderer TEAM MIDNIGHT saves the day All in a day's work It's like reading a Fantastic Five comic book or James Bond but with romance And sex About 4 love scenes I would be happy with fewer I like how this author includes all the latest high tech surveillance gadgets and special ops euipment I noticed that in the previous book too Midnight Promises featuring Felicty and Metal I also liked the scene where the artist Lauren helped Isabel draw facts from her distorted nightmare memories And the mystery man was a cool surpriseAnother plus is the setting It felt real Portland does occasionally get icy roads and I certainly recognized that bridgeSweet romance for Joe and Isabel beginning with the SEAL helping his injured and shell shocked neighbor move into her new home in Portland Thankfully the author didn't wax poetic about Isabel's superficial appeal but as with all her heroines she is amazingly beautiful and incredibly talented So much for plain old me But where Suzanne knows interior design Allegra knows music Lauren art and Felicity technology Isabel knows food She's a famous foodie A menu maven And a fabulous cook Maybe some day we will get a heroine who is NOT a virtuoso in her field A generalist Jill of all trades Sowhile Joe takes care of her maintenance problems she feeds him and all his poker buddies These guys and their girls are all likable; that's a main reason I enjoy this seriesAs with many of her heroes the author gave Joe Harris a crummy childhood but it was not excessively awful as in some cases Just a mean and neglectful father All her heroes are hard hot and buff However unlike the ugly mug she gave to Douglas in Midnight Angel Joe is good looking Not a beauty beast trope this timeGood action scene at the end I liked it a lot Didn't see it coming But see uibblesSweet epilogue HEAs all around Group hug A few uibbles about writing style and plotting WRITING STYLE and FORMATTING Rice is good with details and dialogue but still too repetitive even though she's improving seriously how many times we gotta hear that Isabel is weak and dizzy from PTSD? She still includes too much internal dialogue but that's been improving too However a whole paragraph of apostrophes went missing I dont know whats up with that but youll find that its still readable Also I wish Rice would omit the religious cussing It's a personal thing for me I don't mind some F bombs when they fit I've noticed that Rice loves that word penumbra and finds a way to insert it into numerous books but that's not a uibble PLOTTING I happily enjoyed this story including the big action scenes but there is some plot contrivance The characters did not behave as you'd expect them to given their training and experience At two points in the book TEAM MIDNIGHT acted like rookies At another point the villains acted like rookies These are spoilers view spoiler The mystery man should have warned them about the special gadgets since he knew about them Why didn't he? And on the same tack Team Midnight did not plan thoroughly for problems during the op — they did not brainstorm possible failures nor create a PLAN B However knowing what Blake had done in the Washington DC Massacre they should have expected some surprises Also with numerous video cameras placed at Isabel's home and all along her street they should have picked up on that pervert repeatedly driving by the ex CIA operative Even if he changed cars his face is the same But it all happened so fast over the course of a few days Sookay As for the villains they would have used that knife on her when she started physically fighting them so fiercely hide spoiler

    ARC provided by the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis is #6 in a series and it is my first book to read in that series Even though several characters make appearance here the story is not built around that and they play a pure supporting role here I feel no loss for having not read the previous books and that is a very good thing I find the underlying topic of a second 9 11 event and the take over of the United States economy fascinating and timely The book is a great romantic suspense with a hot romance and plenty of suspenseIsabel survived an attack that wiped out her entire family think of the Kennedy family as a great example Her father was announcing his candidacy for President when it happened Over a thousand people died Isabel survived She moved to Portland and changed her name and tried to recover without much success until Joe Joe is a former SEAL who almost lost his life and has a lot of recovering to do himself although he has SEAL buddies for support and Isabel has no one As both Isabel and Joe fight their way back to normal they fall for each other and Joe is determined to keep her safe especially when strange things begin to happenTogether they discover love and trust for each other and together they take on the task of bringing the mastermind behind the Washington Massacre to justice
