She wears a thousand deadly identities. He sees through them all. A master of disguise, Isabel Roma spends her life pretending to be other women.  Normally, her emotions are reined in tight—but sexy mercenary Trevor Callaghan has a knack for getting under her skin. The elite operative’s quiet strength and raw magnetism affect her in ways she’s never felt before, a distraction that can quickly turn deadly in their dangerous line of work. After putting his tragic past behind him, Trevor is ready to focus on his future—and he damn well intends for Isabel to be in it. When their entire operation is thrown into chaos, Trevor enlists Isabel’s talent for deception. And as they attempt to save their team in a world where the stakes are high and the danger is grave, Trevor must convince Isabel that the woman beneath all the disguises is the one worth having....

Midnight gamesTiming is everything in love. I have been waiting for Trevor Callaghan and Isabel Roma to get on the same page and finally in this book 3, the stars align for Trevor and Isabel. The narrator Allyson Ryan really delivers as her voice really gave the characters intensity.

When we met Trevor in book 1, he had just lost his fiancée Gina while on assignment and her death caused him to give up on life. Isabel saved him a couple of times when his recklessness almost granted him his death wish. But by book 2, it was Isabel who was running from the intensity of their new attraction. In this book 3, a threat on Trevor’s compound, as well as his missing boss Jim Morgan, puts Trevor and Isabel working on the same team again. This time, they are forced to deal with their pasts and also their current situation.

The writing was full of both emotional and sexual tension. Trevor has gone through his stages of grief and now he is ready to move forward. Isabel still bears the tethers of her past, running and hiding has been her coping mechanism for so long that she instinctively pulls away from intense emotions. I love the patience that Trevor radiates because it reminds me of how Isabel took care of him in book 1. The chemistry between these two was burning up the pages. The build up was worth it as the romance worked with this fast paced story. The joint assignment gave these two a chance to really work on creating trust, which translated over to their personal life.

Even more intriguing was the side action featuring D, Noelle and Jim. I cannot wait to get the scope on their past. We got a small taste of their relationship and I know their story will be all that!

Definitely one of the better Romantic Suspense series I have read and I can’t wait until I get the next audiobook.

Special thanks to Tantor Audio for the audiobook, which was given in exchange for an honest review.
