Nathan Lancaster. Elusive billionaire. World-wide philanthropist. Monster.
From the moment he was born, Nathan knew he couldn’t let anyone know who, or what, he was, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to make his way in the world. And he’s fine alone, seriously. Until a curvy, persistent reporter steps up and turns his whole world upside down. She’s lighting up all the corners of his darkness and endangering the secrets he has always held so dear. So why can’t he imagine ever letting her go?
When journalist Lillian Goss discovers that the world’s most eligible bachelor might be a criminal, she isn’t afraid to get the scoop at all costs. Unlike the rest of the world, she isn’t dazzled by Nathan’s easy smile, scorching blue gaze, or notable philanthropy. She’s determined to expose his dark side, until she manages to get up close and finds Nathan altogether different than she thought. He’s even willing to grant an exclusive, if Lillian is willing to walk into the shadows that surround his life and heart.
The more Lillian gets to know Nathan, the more complicated her feelings get for a man who’s much lonelier than anyone knows. Yes, he has secrets, but he also is braver, and kinder, than she ever imagined. But as attraction burns hot between them, and an unknown stalker enters the picture, one questions arises for Lillian above all… Where does Nathan go after Midnight?
Midnight is the first book in the Nightmare Dragons series. These books contain intense themes, some dramatic violence, and tortured shifter heroes who might just make some people afraid of the dark.
When this was released I was so stoked that Terry Bolyryder had a new book !!!!
I got an advanced copy to read and I am giving an honest review.
First, let me say that this book is darker than any in her previous series. Nathan has a monster in him. He is the thing that nightmares are made of. At midnight, he is compelled to change into the monster and “feed”. Sounds ominous.
I didn’t know if I was going to be rooting for him or not. His sweet side won me over. Plus, he does all he can to help people.
Lillian is a journalist who is determined to find the dirt about Nathan. She was so sure that he is evil that she is doggedly persistent in trying to find out more about him so she can write the investigative story of her career.
Nathan is trying to balance dealing with the monster inside of him and his budding feelings for Lillian. I could understand why Nathan was not more forthcoming. He did not exactly have the most nurturing upbringing. There was no point of reference for him to know what was love or family or even happiness. I felt sad for him because he did not have any hope of his situation getting any better. He was so drawn to Lillian that he chose to love, knowing that he would eventually lose her once she knew his secret.
At the same time, Lillian is dealing with the fact that she is a woman who does not like keeping secrets, but she is hugely attracted to man who has this secret life after midnight! Even with all that, Lillian seemed to be too bitter for me. But considering her past, I made allowances for her behavior. I am glad that she gave Nathan a chance because he deserved to be loved.
TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. Overall, I loved this book because of Nathan. He was a good guy trying to make the best of a bad situation.
