THE FIRST ELECTRIFYING ROMANCE IN THE KGI SERIES FROM #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR MAYA BANKS.
The Kelly Group International (KGI): a super elite, top secret, family-run business that handles jobs the US government can't. Qualifications: Military background, high intelligence, and a rock hard body...
It’s been one year since ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly last saw his wife Rachel alive. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt over his failures as a husband, Ethan shuts himself off from everything and everyone.
His brothers have tried to bring Ethan into the KGI fold, tried to break through the barriers he's built around himself, but Ethan refuses to respond...until he receives an anonymous phone call claiming Rachel is alive.
To save her, Ethan will have to dodge bullets, cross a jungle, and risk falling captive to a deadly drug cartel that threatens his own demise. And even if he succeeds, he’ll have to force Rachel to recover memories she can’t and doesn’t want to relive—the minute by minute terror of her darkest hour—for their love, and their lives, may depend on it.
In an intriguing mix of military action and sizzling romance, this latest of the KGI series features ex-Navy Seal Ethan Kelly's fight to reclaim the life and love of his wife Rachel, who had gone missing and had been presumed dead a year earlier. He enlists the members of his family in his struggle, who run a special operations group known as Kelly Group International, or KGI. Ethan's emotional and physical resources are put to the test rescuing Rachel, who proves to be a tough cookie in her own right, at one point eluding kidnappers by swimming through a lake at night, all while nursing a broken arm. Their battle to reclaim Rachel's lost memories and solve the problems raised by the reappearance of those memories is engaging and entertaining. While well-paced throughout, its final pages reveal an author in too much of a hurry to bring her tale to a conclusion.
“The Darkest Hour “ author Maya Banks
I found this a great read by author Maya Banks. She really nailed it with more depth in her character development, more believable action scenes, and less explicit sexual encounters being more tasteful. It is more erotic.
I really enjoyed the dynamic between Ethan and Rachel. Their marriage obstacles and challenges enhance the suspense of the story and kept me on the edge of my seat.
I enjoyed this book.
