Rating- 5
Sexual- 3


Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.

Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.

Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.

If you're like me the end of any romance series is always bittersweet. Usually the couples are having babies and living their happily ever after. But did you ever wonder what happens to those kiddos in the future? What they'll be like when they're all grown up? I have, and I got my dream fulfilled in the newest addition to the Midnight Breed series!

Edge of Dawn follows the story of Mira and Kellum twenty years after the last book. Mankind now know about 'The Breed', and after two decades of fighting are grasping onto a fragile truce.

Remember Mira? The little girl with the quicksilver eyes that can show you your destiny? Well, she's all grown up and kicking some major butt! When her long time love, Kellum Archer, dies in a rogue attack Mira goes on a war path. For eight long years she uses all of her anger and hurt to fuel her fight against the people that murdered her one true mate. But what if everything isn't as black and white as it seems? One mysterious rogue from her past will show her that there are shades of gray, even if learning the truth hurts.

There is so much betrayal running through Edge of Dawn it is ridiculous! My chest ached for Mira. And I loved it! There's nothing better than emotionally investing yourself in a character. It's one of the things that make a 5 star read for me. Lara Adrian absolutely outdid herself.

I can't recommend Edge of Dawn enough. If you haven't read the previous installments of The Midnight Breed, that's actually okay. There are characters from the previous novels present, but you don't necessarily need to read their stories to enjoy this one, since the main focus is on the 'new generation' of The Breed and a new group of dastardly villains.

Lovers of J.R. Ward and Larissa Ione will adore Edge of Dawn's fast paced, action packed, and romantic story!

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
