    This is the first book in Lara Adrian's Black Dagger Bro oops I mean Midnight Breed seriesThe series is about a group of huge badass but good vampires who live together in a compound and fight evil vampires in order to protect their really old fashioned hoity toity race They wear leather and carry really hard core weapons and go on patrol every night to kill the enemy When they find their mate they share blood to stay alive I don't know how I got that mixed up with JR Ward's series SorryYes this series is a pretty blatant rip off of Ward's wildly popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series But here's the catch it's a good rip off It's well written exciting interesting the characters are likeable and well developed So even though I roll my eyes a little at all of the obvious correlations it's still a fun series to read Hey BDB is popular for a reasonI really enjoyed the first book By the time I finished it I started to think Wow Maybe this series is actually better than BDB After reading a couple I've decided it's not but it's still goodAdrian's books don't uite have the same depth edge or daring as Ward's But at the same time they are also free from some of Ward's irritating idiosyncracies such as the overuse of the word shitkickers or the incessant rap music There's also not nearly as much vodka And as the series wears on Adrian does a better job of incorporating the heroines from previous books so you don't feel like you spent an entire book getting to know a character only to have them completely disappearHighly recommend this series to vampireparanormal romance fans If you loved the Blackdagger Brotherhood series you will probably also really like this series

    4 Hot and Cold Stars So this is my second time reading Kiss of Midnight The first time was like back in 2014 I think so I thought it was time for a reread and catch up on the new books in the series The 1st time I read Kiss of Midnight I gave it 5 stars but I am only giving it 4 this time around See even thought it's still a damn good read there were a few things that bugged me this time around that didn't really bug me back then Mainly the thing that really bugged me was how hot and cold Lucan would be with Gabrielle I wanted him to be all alpha and be like MINE period not I'm never getting mated shit Lucan could be very sexy and sweet when he wanted too Of course he totally kicks ass I could understand Lucan had been alone a long time He had lost a lot in his long life including family and he had a ton of responsibility However so had Gabby and I needed him to be just as supportive of her as she was for him Gabrielle was awesome She was brave bold and supportive She had lost a lot in life but she didn't let fear hold her back When she wanted Lucan she told him When she loved him she told him and when he disrespected her and acted like all they would be was lovers she left him Lucan and Gabrielle had tons of hot passion I would have just liked romance I loved meeting the other Breed warriors and getting to see Gideon and Savannah again My heart broke for Con and Danica but my heart was completely ripped out over what Eva did to Rio I was glad that bitch died just sayin' There was some action and a nice world build up Overall I really enjoyed it I'm on to the next one

    My ThoughtsThis novel was remarkably unremarkable Don't get me wrong it didn't suck but I'm not exactly about to clean out the Lara Adrian section at the local bookstore The set up is pretty generic like Adrian got tips from Vampire Romance 101 You've got the big baddies Rogues the group of men fighting to annihilate the big baddies There personalities are even genericat least on the surface There's the leader the badass the geek the smartass the suicidal loner The hero of the first novel is Lucan the Leader aka Emo Vampenis Seriously he's like AngelAngelus from Buffy the Vampire Slayer only not nearly as hot enough to get away with that shit Apparently he's emo because of some tragic things that happened oh 500 years ago? Get the hell over it Emo VampThe heroine Gabrielle is one of those women who claim to be unable to trust anyone yet practically gives her social security number to the first guy who bats his lashes at her in this case Emo Vampenis Not to mention that she is super gullible Only in fantasylandia do women trust guys who say Hey baby let me go bareback cause I can't impregnant you with my demon spawn Unless your that stupid in real life In which case I'm sorry Gabrielle professes to love Lucan with all of her slutty heart soul which makes me think she has no backbone as all he does is boink her snarl act like a douche When he's not being especially Emo anyway This novel many others will have men thinking the way to a woman's heart is through her coochie And they would be right about some women GabrielleThis novel didn't have much of a plot other than going after the big baddies There was a big betrayal scene towards the end but it lasted like half a page before cutting back to Emo Vamp his slutty breedmate Oh they announce who King Big Baddie is which I figured out like 200 pages ago Other than that nothingAs for those who claim this novel is like BDB lite I didn't really see it I mean yeah there were similarities but those similarities run rampant in many PNR novels lots which came out before BDB IMHO comparing this novel to BDB is like comparing Shiver to Blood Chocolate because they both involve werewolves I will say that my copycat meter went off when I read about the dermaglyphs Larissa Ione's Demonica series has heroes with dermaglyphs it's not exactly something you read about alot in romancelandia Alas I found out that this book came out before the first Demonica book so who knows?Overall this was an easy yet boring read but then again I'm sure urine goes down easy if you mix it in beer I probably will read the 2nd novelKiss of Crimson because I do see a potential for kickassness in Adrian's writingOn a side note I love by love I mean laugh at in a snarky way how one of the numerous sex scenes between Emo Vampenis Slutty Breedmate had the hero screaming out harsh words You throw the f bomb out every other page but you've gotta be all cryptic about what the hero is saying? Let me guess I'm grunt grunt ready to fill you with my vampy seed grunt grunt groan deflate? Was I close?

    Great take on the Vampire legendsI really Like this series It has a bit different take on the evolution of Vampires They evolved from aliens who crash landed thousands of years ago and didn’t have the constitution for animal or plant life on Earth The only food source being human blood Eventually after much time certain women with a special trait characterized by a teardrop shaped birthmark were able to give birth to alien human hybrids male vampires These men of the breed continue to find breed mates women with the birthmark to mate and have children withLucan is the Leader of the warrior class of the breed and is a genOne meaning that his father was one of the original aliens that crashed Gabrielle is a photographer who sees a murder outside a nightclub and snaps some grainy cell phone pictures of a group of rogue vampires devouring a human The police think she is crazy but Lucan was there and killed most of the rogues and cleaned up the scene but one got away He goes to see Gabrielle to get her pictures since no human should have that kind of evidence even if the police didn’t believe herLucan and Gabrielle feel an attraction for each other right away and it isn’t long before Lucan notices she has the teardrop birthmark While he does not want a mate in his line of work as a warrior he can’t seem to stay away from her “Jesus” Dante interjected when the heavy uiet in the vehicle seemed endless “All this touchy feely is making me itchy to kill something How about we uit jerking each other off and go blow the roof off this mutha?” Blog|Goodreads|Facebook|Instagram|Twitter|BookBub

    I really enjoyed this book Yes it’s a blatant rip off of the Black Dagger Brotherhood and while reading it I felt like I was cheating on my beloved Brothers but I had been warned about that beforehand and because I was prepared for it it probably didn’t bother me as much as it would of if I was going in blind Plus I’m such a massive fan of the BDB that I’m guaranteed to love anything that even slightly resembles it Although I did roll my eyes in disgust when the heroine referred to the hero as her “dark lover” yes reallySome of the mythology is uniue vampires being from outer space for one Again yes really and I liked the idea of the ‘breedmate’ – vampires who are all men by the way having to select their mates from a select group of humans Interesting I really liked the bad guys or ‘Rogues’ who were chillingly evil and I love the twist on where that part of the story is going to go And even though parts of it were fairly predictable in amongst the romance and the action there were also some surprise moments that had me tearing up and gasping with shock Gabrielle our heroine is very likable and Wrath Lucan is a strong hero Being a first generation vampire he has some issues and therefore takes a long time to come around to accepting his feelings for Gabrielle but she was a confident and persistant little thing and it was enjoyable and not a little bit steamy to watch her eventually break him The best part of the book though was watching the Brotherhood Breed together There are some very interesting characters there and I already know I’m going to love these boys I can’t wait to get to their stories Overall this was a great first instalment to a series I’ve been wanting to get to for a while I’ve been assured that the series moves in a completely different direction than the BDB and I’m very keen to see where it goes

    Good book and very imaginative storyline Adrian really developed a uniue concept of vampirism and vampire society Although the warriors remind me of the Black Dagger Brotherhood they are not carbon copies and the Midnight Breed series is claiming its own place in the paranormal romance genre I love warriors and these guys are definitely creme de la creme One thing that bothered me was the casual indifference about humans being killed by the Rogues The Breed warriors did protect humans and that was clear but the ones that died in this book didn't seem overly mourned by the warriors It seemed a little callous to me Perhaps this due to many many years of seeing humans dying and savagely killed by the Rogues Lucan is a hard man vampire who doesn't open his heart It was great to see Gabrielle sneak into his heart For a young woman who felt isolated and drifting in her life I was happy that she found her home in Lucan I am curious about the warriors that fight alongside Lucan and I can't wait to read their stories

    Before starting my review I admit upfrontthatI AM THE ULTIMATE FAN OF JR WARD’S BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD SERIESfinishing her latest book LOVER UNLEASHED and in limbo waiting for her next book which will be released in March 2012 I looked around for some books in same genre that I could read in the meantimeKiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian was recommended so decided it to give it a try I also read a few reviews about this book mostly good but the one thing that kept coming up was how similar it is the JR WARD’s BDB series Yes there are similarities but there are a few differences which make it an enjoyable read even for those die hard BDB fans out there It’s well written dark sexy edgy with great irresistible charactersloved Lucan and Rio and the Breedmatesbetrayal action sacrifice loyalty and lots steamy sex – your good para normal romanceThis is the first book in Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Seriesso did I like it???? Yes I didHere are some of my thoughts about this book this is the story of Lucan Thorne an ancient Breed Warrior descendant from male vampire aliens a different and interesting take on vampires who mated with human women and Gabrielle Maxwell a photographer who has always felt disconnected with the world When they meet both feel an instant powerful connection this book did remind me of JR WARD’s DARK LOVER – Lucan is a lot like Wrathboth are dark sensual and strong ancient warriors dedicated to protecting his people Gabrielle very like Bethfeisty intense caring and an unconditional love for her man However Gabrielle is human and has the mark of a Breedmate they are the only women that the male vampires can mate and have children withonly male vampires are bornthese women remain human and the exchange of blood between a Breed male will keep them young forever the Breed Warriors gorgeous strong guys wear black leather yes like the BDB brothers enjoy kicking ass and killing off the Rogues – once vampires who have crossed over to the dark side when they are unable to control their Bloodlust something like the Lessers but geez these brutes are something elsewith their long long fangsscary as hell Yes the Warriors live in their own hidden from human eyes mansionjust this one is undergroundbut there are the black candles etc etc sounds like a great place to live The Warriors live amongst each other and there is not much interaction with humansapart from one here and thereI liked Gabrielle’s friend Jamiegreat character Wonder if he will appear in the next books???? Lots of violent scenesthe fights between the Warriors and the Rogues are brutal the feeding scenesbloody and uglyeven when we see Lucan feedingnot surprising that Gabrielle felt scared and disturbed when she first saw Lucan drinking blood from a human Liked the intensity of Lucan and Gabrielle’s relationship HotCaringthe scene where Gabrielle is caring for Lucan when he is seriously injured from a fight with the Rogues is so amazingthreading her fingers through his hair holding his head on her lapI could feel her tenderness towards LucanAs a hard core BDB reader I could still enjoy this book I am going to read the next two books in the series soon After all what else can I do as I wait anxiously impatiently for my next BDB LOVER REBORN to come out BDB’s out theredon’t be put off by the similaritiesread another good series about the world of vampiresBook Overview by Barnes NobleHe watches her from across the crowded dance club a sensual black haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club reality shifts into something dark and deadly In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to igniteLucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren A vampire himself Lucan is a Breed warrior sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commandsHere in the arms of the Breed’s formidable leader Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger seduction and the darkest pleasures of all

    On the surface this book is everything you would expect from a good urban fantasy paranormal romance novel It has a uirky heroine good and evil vampires and uite a lot of smut But again I feel like this book is nothing but the combined works of JRWard Sherrilyn Kenyon and Kresley Cole It wasn't bad but I got nothing out of it the story wasn't particularly different or clever and the characters were reincarnations of a thousand others that have graced the urban fantasy sceneAlso as much as I am intrigued by characters with dark pasts of abuse and whatever else I find that paranormal romance andor urban fantasy books are much better suited with a spunky sarcastic heroine like Georgina Kincaid from Succubus Blues Mac from Darkfever and Cat Crawfield from Halfway to the Grave The whole history of Gabrielle cutting herself took away the uirky fun sense that I love about your typical PR and UF That doesn't mean I'm against darker aspects of the two in fact much of the Black Dagger Brotherhood is uite dark but it still has a lot of fun loving banter between the characters This novel focused on two things vampires and abuse and neither were told in a particularly original way I didn't hate it but I must admit that I'm really surprised how popular this book isAs the dark hero of a PRUF Lucan had a lot to live up to and he failed I came away from reading this with a few memories of a largely forgettable character who is gorgeous and strong and gorgeous and horny and gorgeous damn does this guy have any kind of personality? He reminds me a lot of the dull and boring Dark Hunter funnily enough I can't remember is name from Sherrilyn Kenyon's books I'm reading so many failures lately where the sexy guy of the novel just has nothing memorable about him why can't the authors produce something resembling Barrons or Bones? Give me something that I want to read on for because right now I have no intention of reading Kiss of Crimson Another thing that's bugging me is why can't the majority of authors just pick their characters and carry on their series with the ones we know and love instead of having each book focus on one character or couple in particular Books that do it the way I like Darkfever Halfway to the Grave and Succubus Blues Books that feel the need to start again with a new characters' individual story in every book The Darkest Night Dark Lover and this one Yes those books are not necessarily bad I actually like the first two but surely the whole point of having a series is for them to continue on because the author has not finished with those characters If every book in a series is a different story with the focus on different characters you might as well just write standalone novelsAnd I must say that I'm tired of the annoyingly cheesy petnames for the women in PR and UF and I'm so glad KMM didn't ruin Barrons by having him call Mac something like beauty or flower Yes Bones calls Cat kitten but that's because of her name and we can forgive him because he's really hot ;

    A poorly executed BDBI had my eyes on this for a long time and I said “Heh Why not try it now? Seems like it’s pretty popular so it might be good” So I gave it a try aaaand it wasn’t what I expected it to beThe intro was pretty good; I thought Lucan was a really nice character He was acting all ninja assassin slicing through bad guys and being all mysterious and stuff I like these things so it got my hopes up And then the story began yawnsIntroduction blah blah blah introduction yawns some Typical story group of good vamps VS group of bad vamps They’ve been fighting each other for a certain amount of time years after years Dude sees chick Dude wants chick but rejects her ‘cause of a typical reason Either she’s human or off limits curse virginity etc She has a certain power that will aid the good guys and he must give her up for the good of the community Dude finally needs to protect chick because the bad guy wants something from her Dude falls in love with chick Dude sacrifices something in order to save chick Chick turns immortal somehow Dude and chick live happily ever after Note I’m still at the beginning of the book and I didn’t read any summariesI guess I’ve just defined the PNR genre haven’t I?I don’t want to be uick to judge but most of the PNR series I’ve read so far had a not so cool start I have been trying to get this in mind in order for me to manage to finish the book I was really bored with the story the characters were annoying and dull no great villains and the plot was something I’ve read many times beforeI’m trying to compare the good thing with the bad ones regarding the book Unfortunately not much good stuff happening What can I mention? The tattoos that change their colors seem like a nice idea Kind of remind me of those rings you put on that change colors according to what you’re feeling It’s total bull but feels good imagining that they’re actually right The funeral ceremony was also an interesting aspect Uniue so far I like uniue things so I appreciated itAnd OMG those are all the good things I can think of That is just sadNow to the fun part evil grin The bad thingsGabrielle is a typical damsel in distress Gets saved from all the bad things happening has such a pure heart she can compete with Mother Teresa saves the hero from his evil self ZzZzzZ I’m sorry I just fell asleep because of how boring this isLucan and Gabrielle’s relationship is too easy They accepted each other too fast They lack the spark needed for a fiery relationship Not many authors can pull off a good sex scene before 50% of the book The ones that don’t achieve this give the feel of erotica books Personally I’m not into this genre and I prefer foreplay and a good amount of feelings and depth so that the moment when they make love or whatever is special Unfortunately Lara Adrian did not pull it off 24% into the book and they did it It felt cold and I could actually slip through it without feeling bad Not coolShould I even get started on the whole vamps are aliens part? That just cracked me upThe whole minion deal is soooo Dracula Never liked it But now I remembered playing Overlord That was a good use of minions and I loved it This thing is old school and not really my thingAaaand that’s it with the bad things If you don’t count falling asleep many times while reading the bookThe five breed bros in head to toe fuchsia poured out of the carriage and went to a wonderful place called Candy Mountain There the wonderful pink unicorns stole their kidneys and sold them on the black marked No one saw the five breed bros ever sinceYeah of course Vamp Leader Dude acts like an ass to Saint Chick Before the final fight of the book he decides he wants to spend his eternal angelic music plays in the background life with her At the same moment music changes to something tragic Saint Chick decides to go back home where she belongs but ends up in the clutches of the Evil Master of the Naughty Vamps Now the Vamp Leader must decide It’s either his Xmas candy or the Saint Chicks’ What will the Vamp Leader choose?? To keep his Xmas candy of course audience laughs in the backgroundAaaah in the end I was still close to what I described above Anyways PNRs are typically like this but what matters is the execution Unfortunately Lara Adrian didn’t work for me I’ll give the second book a try because if I remember well Immortals After Dark wasn’t so good at the beginning Eventually it ended up awesome Midnight Breed hmm I dunno if the series is my thing I’ll be nice and give the second book a try in the future Now i need a breakTop 5 uotes#5 “Jesus” Dante interjected when the heavy uiet in the vehicle seemed endless “All this touchy feely is making me itchy to kill something How about we uit jerking each other off and go blow the roof off this mutha?”#4 He gave her only the barest nod of agreement A man of few words evidently but then who needed conversation when you had soul stripping eyes like his?#3 “Your pictures are full of passion”“But?”To her bewilderment he reached out stroked a finger along the line of her jaw “There are no people in them Gabrielle”#2 He had never been one to subscribe to the notion of fate but it seemed pretty damned clear that one way or another this female was meant to cross his pathOh yeah Cross it like a black cat#1 Gabrielle's heart accelerated with a mix of anticipation and fear as he moved away from the door frame and walked into the room She looked at him really looked at him for what he was ageless strength wild beauty unfathomable power A dark enigma both seductive and dangerousRead the review on ZombieHazard

    Kiss of Midnight is a vampire romance I read at the end of my PNR reading era The emphasis is on the end It couldn't grab my attention enough to continue the series but it was enjoyable I guess if I had read this earlier I would have liked it better
