Can’t think of anything to change from my previous review.
Although I think I enjoyed reading it even more this time around.
Review from March 2016
6 No 7 STARS!!
Exquisitely well written. Be prepared, because you will not be able to stop reading. I find it amazing that each book in this series gets better than the one before it. You will feel completely connected to Tegan and Elise. The world building of The Midnight Breed advances in its complexity, all the characters development increase in growth. The ‘Order’ takes on new recruits improving their numbers to fight the Rogues, the suspense and danger accelerates and intensifies. The Non-stop action will keep you reading till your eyes go bleary and roll up into your head. I am tingling with anticipation for what Book #4 has in store.
3 3/4 “For the action!” Stars!
(view spoiler)[I absolutely loved the action and the progression the series made. I think it’s going in a very interesting direction with the villain! However, I didn’t love the romance in this one. I’d been looking forward to Tegan’s book from he was first on page in book one. I probably built him up a little too much before I even started. I was disappointed in him. He was such an ass and his reformation came after I was already too mad at him. Elise was actually not bad. She was very clever and kinda kickass. I understood her, but she put up with a lot of jackassness from Tegan, so… (hide spoiler)]
But! Overall, I still liked this one. I am all in for this series. A few more new characters were introduced. I can see a truly challenging adversary ahead. Can’t wait for the next book! Happy reading!!
After my disappointment with the last book I read in Adrain’s Breedmate series, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go on. However, Tegan’s character intrigued me from the get go so I couldn’t let his book go unread.
Elise Chase suffered remarkable loss in recent years. The loss of her beloved mate hurt her tremendously- but it was the loss of their son that devastated her. Determined to avenge his death, she transforms herself from a sheltered aristocrat to an emotionless hunter who will stop at nothing to see the Breed responsible for killing her son dead – even if it means destroying her sanity to do so.
Tegan knows deep loss as well and something about Elise pulls at his heart- a heart he thought long dead. When he finds her laid low from her debilitating gift he decides to give her a hand in controlling it.
Meanwhile, passion stirs between them and though she awakens something in him, he tries to stay far from it- and her. Until they are both drawn into a web of intrigue that leads them to the other side of the world and to the very center of the struggle between the rogue vampires out to destroy humankind and the group of warriors who have given their lives to stop them.
Something dark and sinister is arising and its far worse than the evil Breed they once considered their arch-nemesis.
Tegan is the kind of sexy brooding hero that we’ve come to love in paranormal romance, and Elise’s transformation makes this novel a winner. They’re coming together is passionate and steamy but I think I enjoyed the intrigue just as much in this one!
Although still not as favored as some of the other paranormal romance series out there- I enjoyed Midnight Awakening and am now anxious to get to the rest of the series!
Until now, if anyone asked, I would have said that Lara Adrien’s Midnight Breed series was good but not great. I would’ve said that it paled in comparison to Ward’s BDB. I would’ve said that it wasn’t anything really special. Now, I stand corrected. Midnight Awakening was something really special and I couldn’t put it down!
What made this book different from the previous two was the incredible off the charts chemistry between Tegan and Elise. The previous books waited too long to develop the chemistry between the leads and I felt very disconnected to the characters. Not so with these two!
I wasn’t a fan of Elise in the previous book, but I definitely became a huge fan from the first chapter of this book. She was an incredible character. Fierce, determined, tough, honest, and committed to all the men in her life (past and present!). I loved how she was portrayed and was cheering for her from the first page on.
Although I became a fan of Elise….I fell in love with the character of Tegan. He hit all my “soft spots” and all my “hot spots”! I loved that he was such a loner and so removed from all connection with others, and how that gradually started to change as his love for Elise grew and grew. I loved his ruthlessness. I loved his tenderness. I loved his intensity. Everything about him…worked for me. I guess I can safely add him to the list of fictional characters that I wish were real!
This is a very violent series and the war is not over. Many new characters are being introduced and I can’t wait for Rio’s story. This book is a keeper and is my favorite of the series…by far!

Tegan had a devastating loss centuries ago. His wife turned into minion and she was killed. Elise had a devastating loss recently. Her son was killed from Crimson drug. These two sad souls will find a common ground and they will try to be together.
To be honest Elise did not really convince me at the beginning as Tegan mate. I did not expect it and I was not exactly happy for it. Firstly, because of her Chase lost his job and changed his life while he was secretly in love with her. Thus, I expected them to end up together. Secondly she seemed a bit weak heroine for someone like Tegan. I wanted something more for him.
Anyway, I somehow was a little more convinced in the end for her suitability but I still consider her the weakest breedmate of the series.
