Goddess Fish Book Tours Book Review: Midnight Special

by Tawny Weber



Somewhere on the train is a key witness for a crime involving arson, murder and a high-profile businessman. And reporter Marni Clare will do whatever it takes to get the story—even if it means crashing in a sleeper car that’s she’s not sure she’s reserved. But when she wakes, she finds herself curled up with the man she’s seeking…and he’s hot enough to derail all her plans!
FBI special agent Hunter won’t complain about the wickedly hot blonde in his arms. And maybe it’s the medication he’s on, but he’s even agreed to share his room for the entire journey….
It’s a long trip in close quarters, and within days their berth becomes the scene of some steamy railway romps. But is Marni just having fun…or is she taking Hunter for a ride?


Review: I've been a fan of Tawny Weber since I first started reading the Blaze line back in 2009. A friend of mine turned me on to the books and there are some really great authors writing for this imprint, Tawny is one of them.

Midnight Special is something different for me. I don't usually do military reads for Special Ops books, but this is Tawny so I thought I'd give it a go, and I'm glad I did.

Like all of her books there's an instant connection between the hero (Hunter) and the heroine (Marnie). What's funny is how much alike both characters are. They are both career driven people that really can't be bothered with committed relationships. But they weren't looking for one anyway.

They get thrown together accidentally (almost on purpose). Marnie is trying to stalk him for an article that would get her a promotion. Hunter has to travel by train (or car) to San Francisco to get to a trial. (An injury prevents him from flying)

Through a mix up, the two of them end up sharing a berth on the Midnight Special. (A train that's doing a 40s whodunit for all the passengers)

What happens on that train is hot and spicy! It takes awhile for things to happen, but I'm glad their was more tension than just the two of them instantly falling into bed. It gave you time to see what kind of people these characters are, and as you get to know them, you really like them, even when everything seems to fall apart.

Hey there's got to be conflict! That comes when Marnie leaves after some burnin' love and then Hunter discovers she's a reporter.

They both have conflicts to resolve and for Marnie, she seeks advice from her like minded aunt.

I liked the compromise that Marnie came to in the end, which furthered  her career, but didn't..well read the book and see, because if I say anything else it will spoil things.

For new to Tawny fans, this book has the bonus backlist title Coming On Strong, which I read back in 2009 when it came out!
