Publisher's Summary

Her nightmares don't stop when she opens her eyes…In one night, talented musician Allegra Ennis lost her sight, her father and her career in a brutal attack she can't remember. Now she's alone in a world of darkness, her only company the nightmares in her head…and a killer is stalking her every move. Scarred and disfigured by war, tough former SEAL Douglas Kowalski never thought a beauty like Allegra could love someone like him. He doesn't expect more than a one-night stand. But when Allegra's life is threatened, Kowalski realizes he will do anything to keep her safe - and by his side.

Best of the three 'Midnights'

Midnight Angel is the third in the 'Midnight' Trilogy, (Midnight Man, Midnight Run, Midnight Angel). This was my favourite of the three and follows Allegra Ennis and Douglas Kowalski who are both introduced in Midnight Run. Events during all three books overlap and while reading all three in order will give you a better feel for the story overall, it isn't strictly necessary. I adore the way Lisa Marie Rice writes her male leads as super tough alpha males. However, beware! It is possible to overdose on her books to the point where the plots basically are the same (tough Alpha male meets tiny beautiful female who is in some sort of dangerous situation which he then solves using his vast experience from his previous military career). They are, however, books I'm happy to read/listen to more than once provided I allow a decent gap between repeats! Alexandra R Josephs is a brilliant narrator. Her husky male voice is perfect for the male leads in this series and I'd happily listen to her again. Thoroughly recommended!

Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder

Any additional comments?

Once again Lisa Marie has got me Hooked on Mr Spunky Alpha male, in this book "Douglas" - Wow Mr yummy. As with Lisa Marie's books the sex scenes were steamy and numerous, nicely detailed and intense, but they weren't gratuitous at all. Rice used them to develop Douglas and Allegra's relationship and managed to infuse them with so much emotion that my stomach was clenching every couple of pages and I kept getting a lump in my throat - and I listened to every single page of those dreamy scenes... What made the difference was that I cared for these characters and felt I knew them. They weren't just anonymous bodies writhing around.

I adored Douglas. It was probably because he was one lost little puppy for an alpha, so used to being rejected and stared at in horror. It's sick of me, I know, but I just loved how incredulous he was that Allegra wanted him, how he was ready to do anything to keep her with him. And I probably liked him because his alpha tendencies manifested, not in bullying and dominating Allegra, but in protecting her and wanting to make her happy. If you have listened and love the Midnight Series like me, you Must get this book. It was awesome......

I should have waited for a sale

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

2.5/3 Stars

Narrator Alexandra R. Josephs. The narration I give 2.5 Stars. I could think of two narrators who would have done a better job.

Heroine is blind due to an accident caused by her music manager.

This one started out so good, but I noticed myself struggling towards the end.
The narrator did an okay job. She read too slow and it sounded as if she had to concentrate how how she was going to say every word.

I regret using a credit on this one. I should have waited for a sale.

3.5 STARS A BEAUTY & THE BEAST STORY

I loved the other two books in the series so I had high hopes for book 3 and it started off so well but regrettably I found this one a bit repetitive and not very exciting.

Douglas is a very Alpha ex Seal but he's scarred and is called ugly but when he hears the voice of an Angel he has to investigate where it's coming from. Allegra is a beautiful, talented Harpist but she's blind so when she meets Douglas she has none of the discriminations towards him that other people have and judges him on his actions rather than looks.

Yes, there was lots and lots of sex - they meet just prior to an attempted armed jewel theft at a Gala their attending and Douglas decides to look after Allegra as things start going down. From then on he takes her under his wing, protects her, drives her home, stays, has lot of sex, cooks for her, looks after her like a priceless doll, bathes her, dresses her and supports her when she has nightmares and flashbacks. Which I found a bit unnecessary as Suzzane, her Interior Designer friend, had redone her home with her blindness in mind and Allegra has been living there for 4 months quite happily. There were a few touching moments like when he taught her the code to locate things (which came in very handy later on) and when he took her out for a walk.

A bit of suspense as her ex Manager/attacker tried to eliminate her through a third party but that just fizzled out to a few paragraphs at the end. The ending seemed very rushed and all was wrapped up in the Epilogue.

Worth a credit? I guess if you've listened to the other 2 books in the series then yes but my mind started wandering during this one and I even contemplated stopping it and moving on to something else. Please don't shoot the messenger - cause maybe I'm just having an 'off' day but I just didn't feel the romance I'm afraid so sorry but it's a No from me.

Could have been better

The premise is awesome. Hardened scarred Ex-Navy Seal rescues damsel in distress who has her own backstory and trauma which of course catches up and attacks. Hero Seal has to protect the girl. They fall in love. Yada yada.
Of course throw in some psychological trauma to help them bond. Sex scenes. All good.

But it just went on and on and on about the internal battles. Him: I’m such a monster. I’m ugly. I’m hideous. I’m rough. I don’t deserve her. Her: I’m broken. I’m handicapped. I’m a burden. I can’t do anything. I won’t adapt.

Over. And. Over. And the internal monologues between when they talk. OMG JUST STOOOP.

The actual attack part? Less than 1/4 of a chapter! The majority of the book was internal dialoguing.

Like I said: great story premise, poorly executed.

Not Terrible

Story is weak but the narrator is bad. If you are going to pick a good or even moderate narrator they need to be able to pronounce the words. It is very annoying . Most of her books have relative poor narrators.

Another hit

Loved the story. Just enough suspense. Beautiful development of hero and heroine. I loved that neither shut each other out even though neither felt worthy of the other. Great sex. Loved that there continued to be interacting with the other friends.

Awesome

I really loved this book. I'm extra happy I listened to it via Audible instead of reading it because I couldn't put it down and would have gotten. nothing done. The narrator did a fantastic job. I do wish that ending had a few more paragraphs but I'm still happy with it. Can't wait to start the next book.

Blind to love

A lady is attacked, leaving her blind. On her first outing since the accident she is involved in a robbery, not so lucky eh?! On the bright side, a big hunka chunka is there to save her and they gradually fall in love.
