THE ALL-NEW KGI NOVEL from the “incredibly awesome" (Jaci Burton) #1 New York Times bestselling author of When Day Breaks.
The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.
Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.
Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t...
The enigmatic Hancock has been both opponent and ally to the KGI teams for as long as they've known him. Always working a deep game, Hancock's true allegiance has never been apparent, but one thing is for certain—he never lets anything get in the way of duty.
But now, his absolute belief in the primacy of his ultimate goal is challenged by a captive he's been ordered to guard, no matter how much she suffers in her prison. She's the only woman who's ever managed to penetrate the rigid walls surrounding his icy heart, but will he allow his perplexing feelings for the beautiful victim to destroy a mission he's spent years working to complete or will he be forced to sacrifice her for “the greater good.”
Banks's solid 10th KGI military romance (after When Day Breaks) focuses on mercenary and frequent Kelly Group International frenemy Guy Hancock, whose previous occasional glimmers of humanity almost always involving saving members of the Kelly family become a shining beacon when he meets the beautiful Honor Cambridge. Honor, an aid worker in an unnamed Middle Eastern country, is the only survivor of an attack by the terrorist group called A New Era. Guy is hired by a power-hungry man named Bristow to capture her and use her as a bargaining chip. Guy knows this will allow him to get to his nemesis, Maksimov, but is uncomfortable with sacrificing an innocent even before he finally meets Honor. Once he realizes how strong and smart she is, he begins seriously questioning his mission. The story is hampered by some awkward turns of phrase and a decidedly creepy edge to Guy's possessiveness. Longtime fans may long for the Kellys and KGI employees (who don't even appear until the book is more than half over), but there's plenty of action and sex to keep them entertained.
The ending almost ruined it. I’m all about the happy ending but this ending was completely unbelievable... I can’t explain without spoiling it for those who haven’t read it but Honor was the most incredible heroine in all of this series in my opinion and Hancock was great... Until the epilogue. It was a great book and so far I have liked almost all of the books in this series.
Darkest before dawn
Best one in the whole series!
What a wild ride!
I love this book. We got to see another side of Hancock and what a great female character. I can't wait to read the next installment.
