P. J. and Cole were sharpshooting rivals on the same KGI team and enjoyed a spirited, uncomplicated camaraderie. Until the night they gave in to their desires and suddenly took their relationship one step further. In the aftermath of their one-night stand, they're called out on a mission that goes terribly wrong, and P. J. walks away from KGI, resolved not to drag her teammates into the murky shadows she’s poised to delve into.

Six months later, Cole hasn't given up his search for P. J., and he's determined to bring her back home where she belongs. Bent on vengeance, P. J. has plunged into a serpentine game of payback that will make her question everything she's ever believed in. But Cole - and the rest of their team - refuse to let her go it alone. Even if it means sacrificing their loyalty to KGI, and their lives...

    "Hard Ass - Kick Ass - It's all good !"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this action paced story. Although rape is a hard subject for me i found it didn't totally dominate the story line so wasn't to bad to get through. Adam Paul is a wonderful narrator. I love his crisp voice and the way he changes it for each character. A good book and in my opinion is worth 3 1/2 stars more than the 3 I could give. I wish Audible allowed for half stars as well as whole one's :)

    "Great book"
    What did you love best about Shades of Gray?

    It was unpredictable with twists that I did not expect. Loved the characters they were more than sappy love struck superheros running through forests with bullets flying they had faults and dependance versus independence struggles that is refreshing to me a veteran adventure/romance reader.


    What other book might you compare Shades of Gray to and why?

    I have enjoyed the entire KGI series but this is my favorite so far.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Story is Amazing....Narrator Change Not So Much!!"

    This is a great book in the KGI series! It was refreshing to read about a heroine that didn't need to be protected! PJ is a tough girl and Cole loves that about her. The narration was not terrible it just was not the voice that we have associated these characters with. I can say that I never imagined Cole having such a southern accent, probably because of the previous narrator. Worth the credit for me !

    "Narrator changes"

    Why, Why did they change the narrator? When I listen to several books in a series by the same narrator, I become accustomed to the narrators way of speaking. I loved Harry Berkeley's Rio. I loved his Sam and all of the other characters, even the women. The new narrator is probably very good, but to have him start in the middle of a series is just wrong! It would be like having a different narrator read the JD Robb books. I don't understand!
    I hope that Harry Berkeley is available for Forged in Steele!

    Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.

    "Didn't mind the narrator!"

    None of the earlier books from this series are on offer to folk in my real life location, so I disregarded the reviews that didn't like the 'new' narrator. I'm very pleased I did as I found Adam Paul to be up to the task of reading this (at times) disturbing book. I'd have no hesitation about buying books narrated by him in future and, of course, you simply can't go wrong with a Maya Banks' book!

    "Disappointed with the narrator change"

    Just finished listening to Shades of Gray... I LOVED it!
    But why the change of narrator? He wasn't so bad with PJ's voice but the accent he gave the other Kelly men and Rio is gonna take a while to get used to. Can we have Harry back for Steele's story?

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "MAYA - THANK YOU 'CAUSE YOU DID IT AGAIN"

    Another KGI hit and it's all been said before - it's a fast paced, action packed, thrilling, emotional, romantic, tragic yet humorous, so basically - a gritty story that has great characters getting involved in a new drama that was very enjoyable. Yes it's unbelievable but who cares - it's fiction.

    Worth a credit? I haven't found a KGI book that I haven't enjoyed or regretted spending the credit on - so folks that's a YES and I'm counting the days til Forged In Steele (which is the next one) comes to Audible.

    "Great as usual !!!"
    Where does Shades of Gray rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It started off strong although sad. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ms. Banks was able to tug at my heartstrings.


    What about Adam Paul’s performance did you like?

    Adam's performance was great but I am accustomed to the voice of Harry Berkeley. On the other hand Adam was able to change his voice to suit the many persons in the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The first hour of the book and the last was emotional for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Please Harry Berkeley, leave what you re doing the next time and get over here! Additionally, I think throughout the series that Ms. Banks seems to think that every hostage or persons saved must get married to their saviour. Also, except for a few, the women in her series appear weak and need guidance from big strong men. I swear if I hear another "Babe, you re my woman" I'll scream. All in all a very great series thus far. I would recommend it.

    "Loved the book but..."

    I love Maya Banks and her writing and I throughly enjoy the KGI series. My issue with this book was the narrator. I just couldn't listen to him. Every character's voice sounded like they were whiny country bumkins. These men are suppose to be big strong intelligent alpha males and the narrator's choice for their voices made them sound like dim witted hicks who couldn't find their way out of a paperbag. I loved the story but was very disappointed in the chi u ce of narrator.

    "Disappointing"

    The narrator shouldn't give up his day job because his characters' voices and accents were atrocious. Why take a strong female character in the series and turn her into a victim who has to be rescued? Is this the only way the author can build a relationship between two characters by breaking down the female lead into a weak and damaged character, seriously? I should have quit two books ago when they went all ESP.
