Usually I expect more from Maya Banks. Since I finished her Sweet Series...I was expecting the same hot and heavy love scenes with a great set of characters to really enjoy. This book was okay..not great...the love story is pretty much predictable. I would say Maya does layout the Kelly Clan well enough that you may want to explore their individual stories. However, these books will not be a must have in my library. There was not enough drama or action to keep me wanting more.
I fell in love with KGI series after reading The Darkest Hour. If you are in the mood for heartbreak, forgiveness, and redemption then this is the book for you! As always I hate giving anything away but this book made me run out and buy all of the books in the KGI series. Maya Banks has the unbelievable talent with her writing to draw a person into the story and anchor you not only to the main characters but to the secondary characters. So much so you anticipate their stories just as much as the main story.
Harry Berkeley is an amazingly talented reader. He brings such warmth to each of the characters and is the perfect complement to Maya Bank’s writing talent. Now if Recorded books and Audible would get book two out before book six comes out next year!
Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Was looking for a new series and this one caught my eye. Wasn't overly excited about the story, kind of went on slowly with alot more detail than needed. The narration just ok as well. I'm hoping there's better to come in the following books. The strong brothers kept me interested in the future books to come.
I read so I can write
IMO this story is riddled with unbelievable parts and pieces and overstuffed with unnecessary parts and pieces. Rachel is the least believable swinging from being intelligent and courageous to foolish and cowardly.
The premise of series could be good but I doubt I'll continue with the rest of the books.
Well unfortunately I've been a bit slow to listen to this series because Audible released them out of order and I wanted to wait and listen to them in order - which I'm so pleased I can now do and hey, better late than never.
This was a great listen (as most of Maya's books are) and it hooked me in from the start as grieving drunk ex Navy Seal's greatest wish is granted as he finds out his wife could still be alive and asks for all his brothers in the KGI Team to help free her.
There's action, thrills, passion and heartache as the story unfolds and we learn about all the characters involved in the KGI Team as well as the two main characters and their on/off relationship which is sorely tested. I thought the sex/passion scenes were a wee bit 'tame'' for M.B.'s usual books but it was still a very enjoyable listen.
Worth a credit? Yes absolutely, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
I listened to the later books first because they were the only available on audio and liked them all. This one was no exception. I like the characters and story lines of each book. The heroine in this one was brittle but still strong if that makes sense. Not an easy balance to keep.
I'm waiting for the rest of the series to be put on audio. My eyesight is very poor and I can't read printed books so audio book mean a lot to me.
I love Harry Berkely. I try not to let a bad reader ruin a book but when there is one you like this much it makes the book better.
Of course we all have our own individual preferences and the only way one knows if you like a book is to listen to it yourself. I am a fan of MB books and I found myself, forcing myself to listen to this book until the end.
I was disappointed to find this story boring, sickeningly filled with overdone "lovey doviness", and a ridiculous amount of mundane descriptions. At points, I found myself speaking out loud in frustration. Don't get me wrong there are some good points in the story, but overall it leaves a lot to be desired. The narration unfortunately left even more to be desired. When I listened to the preview snippet I thought the sexy accent would surely heighten the enjoyment, but OMG he was so very boring. I am a fan of Kresley Cole, J D Tyler, Jeanine Frost, and Gena Showalter to name a few, and was hoping the KGI series would be of their caliber, like MB's other books. As a MB fan, I'm hoping the KGI stories get better and am going to try Book 2. But, If 2 is as bad as Book 1, then I will not be able to recommend them at all.
yes, great writing. Fabulous Narrating!!
I'd say they are close to the Catherine Coulter FBI series!
He ads an extra personal touch. The way he brings the characters to life and allows the characters to be more real and feeling!
I've read this book before, however, when I listened to the part when Rachael was rescued, I literally cried. Harry Berkeley is fantastic at brining the emotions to the surface.
Keep the great writing and the character development coming!!
I Love Audiobooks & Great Narrators!!!
I loved this book! After listening to this 1st book in the series, I have already purchased the rest of them. The narrator was great, I love a strong male character especially when the narrator has a strong male voice!! If you love Maya Banks, you will love this series, it may just be the best one yet!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
It's interesting. I didn't have to listen to it all at once, but it was OK. I like more "passion" in my books, but the story is good.
I enjoy his voice. He did a good job as usual.
More passion between the characters.
I'd wait until it was on sale to get it instead of using my credit.
