Book three in author Lisa Marie Rice’s Midnight series, Midnight Angel, is about a woman, Allegra Ennis, who loses her eyesight in a brutal attack by a person or persons unknown. Now surrounded by the blackest of nights that will last forever, she is haunted by nightmares of a monster whose face she can’t quite recall.

When Allegra meets a tough and hunky former Navy SEAL willing to help, the two work together to expel her demons. Oh yeah, the two also start passionate romance and their marathon erotic lovemaking sessions are described here…in detail.

Narrated in soft and silky tones by Alexandra R. Josephs.

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......

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.

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.

Sweet but disapointing

I read this as a stand-alone, and my overall impression is sweet but disapoingting. I liked the characters, and their crash romance, but there was one giant thing that ruined it for me. I’m going to go into it, but this is a spoiler for the ending, so you’ve been warned.




Allegra is blind, and in denial about having to deal with that fact. There is an experimental surgery (highly experimental) that could maybe fix her blindness so she is holding onto that.
I was hoping that the book would explore this, and show us her comming to terms with her blindess. I mean, she hasn’t even lost her art (her music) to it. Instead it’s only there to give her an air for melancholy, a need for dependancy of the hero, and for her have a suggat sweet oneliner at the end of the book when she can see again. To me this cheepened the rest of the story. And it made me respect her less as a person. To choose a high risk surgery that is more likely to end in brain death than eye sight over adapting. I know it’s a story and the author is in control but it was really frustrating to read about. It made me wish thay the condition she had was obviously temporary from the beginning instead of making her someone who would genuinely rather die than not have her eye sight. Being blind is not worse than death, and having it portrayed as such is frankly really insulting to all who are blind. This is a personal subject for me, so to me it jarred enough that I ended up really disliking the whole thing. But I am able to see that I was enjoying it up to the point where I realized this was where it was headed, the epilogue realky hammered that dislike for me home.

Overall I’m not interested in any other of this authors books as I’m afraid of more weak characters who I’ll end up really disliking. If non of this would bother you then you’ll probably enjoy the book as it delivers on everything else it promises.

Very well done.

This is part of a trilogy but each can be read completely alone. The main characters melded together into people I’d like to know.
