5 stars – Romantic Suspense

I didn't love this quite as much as The Darkest Hour, the first book in the fantastic Kelly/KGI series, but it's still a great romantic suspense read with lots of emotional twists, pulse pounding action, and erotic love scenes.

Sam is such a sexy, caring alpha hero (and a smokin' hot, attentive lover!), but his mistrust of Sophie frustrated and angered me at times. Although that suspicion certainly ran both ways, and Sophie's stubbornness, dishonesty, and TSTL moments annoyed me, too.

I can't wait for Hidden Away to find out what kind of heroine gets under gruff, stoic Garrett's tough exterior and brings him to his knees. And I really hope Maya Banks writes books for the rest of the Kelly clan, especially Donovan, who's the sweet peacekeeper of the brothers.

MBR Ooh! So you are a fan of Van as well? A lot of my friends seem to have a huge crush on the guy. Garrett however is the guy for me. Just makes my knees go weak ^_^

Shawna Oh yeah...Van is dreamy! I'm looking forward to Garrett's story too 'cause I want to see him grovel a little.

Auntee Great review Shawna! Yeah, that lack of trust bothered me too. But these two hardly knew each other, so I could understand it.

Shawna Thanks, Auntee! I understood their reluctance to trust each other, but it just got a bit exasperating at times.

Auntee I know, especially that big scene at the end where Sam thought...well, you know!
