Review: Midnight Rescue by Elle Kennedy

Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage. And she's the good guy.

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: trust no one.

Abby's latest assignment is in Colombia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.

The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.

What I really liked about this story was the opening:  rather than the hero being tortured, we see the heroine taking a beating and hypothesizing about what might happen to her.  An interesting spin on the romantic suspense subgenre from my point of view, as I've never read where the heroine takes the lead/initiative.  Abby is out of the mold, so to speak, but I did find myself wondering if she'd had too much military/special ops training and not enough therapy.  

I want to find out more about the secondary characters we met in Midnight Rescue, specifically Trevor and Isabel, so I plan to continue this series.
