Summary

Lead me not into temptation...

Easier said than done when your name is Deacon Jacobs and temptation is your drug of choice. The woman with a broken soul shouldn’t even have registered on his radar, but a wolf wants what a wolf wants. Sparks fly between the feisty female and the arrogant wolf, but Gemma got caught in the Midnight Pack’s crossfire once before, and now, all she wants is to forget. 

A familiar enemy resurfaces, but all is not as it seems, and the pack closes ranks to face what could be their toughest challenge yet. The risks are daunting, but Deacon will gamble everything, including his life, to ensure Gemma’s safety.

Terrific!

I relished Deacon and Cassie's story and their back and forth. They had a charged connection with fiery chemistry. Deacon's character was my absolute favourite, with his hotness and personality, he added zeal to the story.

Midnight Temptation is a well written paranormal shifter romance, with a great plot and captivating characters. L. Ann's writing is terrific, well-paced with great delivery. This was my first time listing to Mike Peterman. I enjoyed his performance, especially the distinctive tones for the various characters.

Overall, this was a splendid listen and I can't wait to see what's next in the Midnight Pack series. I highly recommend this audiobook, especially to all fans of paranormal, shifter romance.

Midnight Temptation

Wow! This book starts off right where the first ended and we get the next brother’s story and mate. So much pain and strength is shown in this book with all the characters. I can only imagine what will be coming next in the final book of this series.

Great!

Fast paced, suspenseful and dramatic and exciting. The story line continues from the first book. The subject matter is a bit dark at times but the humour and romance really lightens the tone. It had me laughing out loud quite a lot. I loved how the author poked fun at the romance genre. She has a wicked sense of humour! I'm really enjoying this series and looking forward to the next book.


I voluntarily reviewed an advance reading audio copy.

Midnight Temptation

This is the second book in the series overlapping some of the previous book focusing more on one of the other brothers story and continuing it. Shape shifting wolfs how's pack is under attack by hunters and one of there own? Mysteries and truths revealed, while trying to be there for someone who has been through an offal ordeal and he is also facing his own emotions. The story is well read and there is still more to come in the story. Like the other book there is explicit sexaul seens in the story, which is part of the shapeshifter nature.

The mystery continues!!

Things are not what they seem!
The midnight pack have a way to go in understanding what’s really going on. This book is a continuation of midnight touch. The book pretty much picks up where the first left off, so be sure to read Midnight touch first.
Deacon and Gemma’s story, is a great battle of wills that will have you going from laughing to swooning in a matter of a few lines.
The issues raised were sensitively done and did not dominate the story as a whole.
You still get those little snippets of what’s about to come in the next book, which I can’t wait to read I’m sure Mac’s story is going to be just as hot as the the rest.
The narrator really does a fantastic job of Deacon’s story.
He has managed to give this character a great voice. I just love his enthusiasm for the story, you just know he’s having fun reading it.
I can’t wait for Midnight Torment the next book in this series to be released.

Love this series

Deacon is fabulous his sarcasm is epic but Gemma tells him and anyone else who will listen to her that she hates him. However Deacons not giving up and goes out of his way to annoy Gemma ,it’s his way of showing her he likes her. Loved listening to this and couldn’t help laughing at Deacon 😂

2.75 STARS ★★✬✩✩

This book is for you if… you won’t let a sequel that’s not as good as the first instalment keep you from pursuing a series.

⤐ Overall.
I have mixed feelings about this sequel. While I was on board with the plot of Midnight Touch , I am very torn about the plot of Midnight Temptation. First and foremost, the way Gemma's trauma is handled and 'treated' was ghastly from beginning to end in my eyes. I was pretty appalled by the way Deke treated Gemma sometimes - brutal and harsh, almost violent even. I am not an expert and can thus not judge whether the positive effects he had with this on her are realistic or not.

On the other hand, I loved how Gemma was mostly healing out of her own accord, with her wolf protecting her and taking over when it got too much for her. It did a little something to take off the edge of that damaged female trope the author seems to be a fan of. I really hope this is not going to be a theme in every book of the series, it's just too much.

Also on the more original side of this book is the background story of Damien (Damian?)'s betrayal to the pack. I'm glad they made more of it than their random average killer who posed as a friend for the better part of their time spent together. I like things to be multidimensional, and that definitely the case with the story outside of the romances in the Midnight Pack universe.

While I praised the prequel for its steaminess, I can't really say the same about Midnight Temptation. They were meh and all seemed to be similar


⤐ What’s happening.
After being freed from her gruesome imprisonment, Gemma needs time to heal. While the confines of Midnight Pack seem to smother her at first, she slowly realises how much her half-breed nature and her heart depend on the shifters - one shifter in particular - that have already taken her sister in as one of their own.

Highly recommended

Audiobook read. Hooked on this series.

Midnight Temptation is the second book and would definitely be better if you’ve read Midnight Touch first. This is Deacon and Gemma’s story. Both of them are the siblings of the characters in book one. At the end of Midnight Touch Gemma has had a traumatic time and the chemistry she felt with Deacon is broken. Now the pair have to work out a way to move forward while still keeping their eyes on the past.

This is a steamy read. It’s about shifter wolfs and involves the community. It’s about finding the right person to heal all wounds. There are some interesting characters including villains. Gemma has some internal demons to overcome as well as a side of her to accept. I really enjoyed the twists and turns.

I had a break between book one and two which made me appreciate how much I’ve liked the world L Ann has created. I won this in a competition with no obligation to review. The author has a clear voice and tries to add feeling. Mike Peterman is growing on me.

narrator needs work

The narrator is is very monotone. You can't tell the difference between normal, angry, aroused, etc. Would be better if he showed more emotions during the emotional parts instead of just reading a script. I love the story, but the delivery needs work.

Excellent Audible Book!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. This is book 2 in this continuing saga. The author has written a captivating story that is full of adventure, heartache, hope, mystery, banter, hot love, and many twists and turns. There is never a dull moment. When Deacon rescues Gemma the last thing that he wants is a mate, but his wolf wants her. They will have to overcome several obstacles to be together. The pack will be confronted with confusing twists and turns. The narrator does an amazing job of portraying the emotions of these characters. He really does bring the story to life. He makes the sex scenes even hotter! I recommend this Audible book.

Deacon!!!!

Love love this book! Fell in love with the Jacob brothers when I read their story on my a Kindle. Then listened to it on audio. Mike does an excellent job narrating a book that is filled with love, tragedy, heartache and most of all witty banter. I wish there were a ten star rating! This series deserve it!

Fabulous story!

Let me start by saying I have a really bad habit of buying a book and not looking that it’s the second book or the fifth book in a series!
This is the first book I have listen to by this author! I liked this story but I felt as though I was missing some details and I will be starting over with book one.
This storyline has action, suspense, adventure, intrigue, mystery and romance! I do have to say from my experience you should definitely start with book one.
The narrator does a great job with the characters and voices of each making it easy to distinguish between the characters. This is the first book by this narrator I have listen to and I have to say he does a fabulous job.

Loving this series

Enjoyed books 1 and 2 and looking forward to book 3. this series has intrigue, playful alphas who willing or unwilling claim their mates, and mates who don't just lay down and submit. Makes for a great listen.

Great alpha male

You gotta love a broody alpha male!! "Starshine" was quite snarky herself. Throw them together and you have an explosive love story. They characters in this book were great. I loved all of them, even the ones I loved to hate. Enough suspense, action and romance to keep you hooked. Narrator was great! Good fun listen!

Yes Midnight Temptation!

Loved it! This is the second book in the series, and it starts right where book one ends. The first book was about Shawn and Cassy. This book is about Deacon and Gemma. Gemma and Deacon's chemistry is full of temptations and sexual tension. I can't wait to see what will happen in book three!
