Former CIA agent Bailey Jones has spent months trying to forget her night of passion with mercenary Sean Reilly. An elite and methodical assassin, she has no room in her life for a reckless, rule-breaking Irishman, and she’s vowed to steer clear of the tempting bad boy who lured her into his bed under false pretenses.

When Sean is implicated in the robbery of a Dublin bank, Bailey knows something isn’t right. So what if she can’t trust him? There’s no way Sean would end up on the wrong side of the law. In fact, he’s stuck in the middle of a dark and dirty conspiracy that could put his twin brother’s life at risk with one wrong move. And Bailey’s life too when she agrees to help. As the stakes are raised and Bailey finds herself torn between two brothers, the fine line between danger and desire is crossed…and it’ll take more than a killer instinct to survive.

This series is one of my favorites, Ms. Kennedy writes amazing stories and her romantic suspense are some of the best. The women are strong, intelligent and will kick ass with the best of them and her men are sexy alpha goodness.

Bailey Jones is a former CIA agent who is working for Noelle as an assassin, that is until Noelle married her enemy (and love) Morgan which melded their two teams together creating a force to be reckoned with. She has been with Noelle for about five years and is danger in a small package that many have misjudged.

Sean Reilly was working for Morgan’s team but left abruptly along with his brother without a word, Morgan is pissed and wants nothing to do with either of them. However the next time the team sees Sean, he is robbing a bank in Ireland for a group of terrorist called the Irish Dagger. Without thinking

Bailey takes off to Dublin and not far behind are several of the others, including D, Liam and Sullivan. What they don’t know are Sean’s reasons, but when it comes to his brother Oliver, Sean will do anything.

What a ride, from beginning to end this is non-stop action. I love the characters that Ms. Kennedy has created throughout this series, they are tough people with secrets so deep that no one knows who they really are but they are loyal to a fault and will back each other through thick and thin, which is why Bailey and the others jump at the chance to help Sean, no questions asked.

Bailey is a mystery to most on the team, no one knows much about her past and most don’t care, except Sean, he has been interested in her since he met her, five years ago. He even went so far as to pretend he was his twin and they spent an amazing night together, but unfortunately instead of bringing them together it sent them further apart because Bailey was pissed. When she shows up during his robbery it is his turn to be pissed but no matter how hard he tries, she won’t leave and neither will the others.

Sean and his twin brother practically grew up with the Irish Dagger group, as their father was a member, but after their father died, they both left. Now what Sean really wants is for his brother to be free and to have Bailey. I love these two together; Sean and Bailey are both passionate whether they are pissed at each other or steaming up the bedroom. Their chemistry is off the charts and as much as Bailey fights it, she still can’t keep away from him, and he loves that.

The pace is fast and furious starting from the beginning hostage situation to the end. Sean is in deep trouble, stuck between a rock and a hard place as he tries to free his brother and work between two terrorist groups that seem to want something from him. I love the camaraderie between the team members and look forward as they work on other cases. I was very happy seeing Sullivan and Liam again and I am anxious to find out how their relationship grows. I am also excited to see the next book is about D, I have liked him since the beginning, such a mystery. This is the sixth book in the series and although the group is tight knit and several are featured in other stories, each book has its own story so it can easily be read alone, but I highly recommend reading them all as they are extremely entertaining.

I give Midnight Captive by Elle Kennedy 4.5 stars!
