I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

After a shocking betrayal nearly killed him and the people he cares about the most, what Breed warrior Rafe wants more than anything is revenge against the insidious brotherhood called Opus Nostrum. But to achieve that goal, he must turn his back on the Order and infiltrate a dangerous gang with ties to Opus. Risking everything to redeem himself and carry out his deep-cover mission, Rafe will let nothing stand in his way--least of all his desire for one of the loyalists he should despise, a mysterious, dark-haired beauty named Devony Winters.

But Devony has secrets of her own to protect, as well as a personal duty she will do anything to fulfill. And as a daywalker passing herself off as human to the gang she's been embedded with for months, the last thing she needs is a dangerous former member of the Order unraveling all her hard work. Her plans depend on keeping Rafe at arm's length, but if she surrenders to the dark need he stirs within her, it will be her heart that pays the ultimate price.

After the ending of Claimed In Shadows, then reading the blurb for Break The Day, I was seriously worried about Rafe. He had faced a lot and I was scared that he was going to be scarred for life. My fear was quickly assuaged within the first chapter or so, and I felt a ton better.

We are still after the elusive Opus Nostrum, and the investigation continues. Rafe is determined to find out who nearly killed all he loves. Then he finds a female who’s goals are the same but she actually did lose everyone she loved to this group. They meet up investigating the same group of criminals. Devony is a day walker so she can hide her true nature a lot easier than Rafe. I thought that if this group they were looking into was working for Opus, that they would refuse the help of a Breed, but they accept him easily enough. Although that might be for the wrong reasons.

I felt like we jumped into the action fast and that while there was definitely the romance portion between Rafe and Devony, the intensity of the fight against Opus was at the forefront. I was kind of disappointed with just how badly Devony took Rafe’s situation and really didn’t expect her to go as far as she did. I’m so glad Rafe did not give up on her and we do continue onto an HEA after some terribly tense moments.

Hillary Huber does a great job on this series and I enjoyed listening to this installment of the Midnight Breed. I’m feeling much more comfortable with the characters. I was initially a little strange with them because they were all children of my favorite characters, but I seem to be over that and am seeing them as the adults they are. I’m excited for the next book and see how much the Order grows and how close they can get to Opus. Opus has some wicked dangerous tricks up their sleeves and my worry for all my Breed favorites is at stake!

About Lara Adrian

As a child, Lara Adrian used to sleep with the covers up around her neck, afraid she might become the midnight prey of deadly vampires. Later on, under the influence of Bram Stoker and Anne Rice, she had to wonder if her fear wasn’t actually something else: a secret desire to walk in a darker world, to live a dangerous and sensual dream with a man of seductive, preternatural power. It is that twining of fear and desire that fuels Lara’s own fantasies today, and the idea that she explores in her New York Times bestselling Midnight Breed series of vampire romance novels from Bantam Dell Books.

With an ancestry stretching back to the Mayflower and the court of King Henry VIII, Lara Adrian lives with her husband in coastal New England, surrounded by centuries-old graveyards, hip urban comforts, and the endless inspiration of the broody Atlantic Ocean.
