Publisher's Summary

The last person Sam Kelly expected to save was Sophie Lundgren. Once they shared a brief, intense affair while Sam was undercover and then she vanished. She's spent the last few months on the run, knowing that any mistake would cost her both her life and that of their unborn child. Now she's resurfaced with a warning for Sam: this time, he's the one in danger.

Very Good

Would you listen to No Place to Run again? Why?

Yes, it's a very good listen. Also its a series and I always like to re-visit the good ones. I'm looking foward to book 3.

Have you listened to any of Harry Berkeley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, he never disappoints.

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

I like it when Sam interacts with the baby as she kicked within the womb. Thats just too sweet.

Any additional comments?

It's worth the credit or purchase. I'm looking foward to getting the others in this series. I liked this one much better than the first one in this series.

Much much better than Book 1! Whew!

There were only two things I took issue with in this book.
1- The beginning had a ridiculously long sex scene that became tedious rather than exciting.
2- The story arc on Sophie's ultimate release, was a lazy out, and should have had more explanation of the passage of time it took for Thomas' vengeance.
Overall the story had substance and heart, and is a much better story than the first one. I found myself laughing, being anxious, and smiling in all the right places.
I highly recommend it. Thanks, MB.

Finally I have the whole series

This was the last book of this series to be put on audio. I have very low vision and can not read print so I was excited to see it. It was worth the wait! If you are a series fan as I am and you like your romance with suspense and a few twists, I recommend these books highly. I do think it helps to listen to them in order now that they are all here. The books do work on their own however.
I love listening to Harry. He is one of my favorite readers!

IF YOU KEEP WRITING THEM - I'LL KEEP ENJOYING THEM

Occasionally we come across a series that is just so addictive you frantically look for the next book in the series to see .... 1) if it's been written yet then .... 2) when it's going to be released and finally .... 3) beg Audible to get it - well KGI is one of those series.

Sam is the Leader of the elite KGI Special Ops team - a band of Kelly brothers (and their team) fight against all that's corrupt and bad that Governments can't or won't touch - and with any luck, find the one person along the way that will make their tough existence complete. Sam's undercover mission gives him the chance to meet a lovely waitress for a few nights of hot sex - sadly, little does he know the player is being played but either way both players lose ........ but there's still a chance to win the biggest jackpot of their lives.

Filled to the brim with great characters who involve themselves in a typical MB plot (although not so hot as other series) there's passion, mild (for her) sex, intrigue, deception, action, suspense coupled with some thrills and chills along with an emotional desperate fight for survival of, not only one, but two lives.

Worth a credit? I suspect for all of the forthcoming KGI books (and long may they continue) it's going to be an auto download and an auto credit well spent, so that my fellow listeners, is a YES.

Disappointed

I enjoyed the story and characters of this book. However, the language and sex are unnecessarily crude. I feel sorry for anyone who thinks that represents romance. I would not recommend this book to friends male or female. It's a shame because the author could have a much larger reading audience by displaying some tact.

Good book, bad beginning

The beginning was crude more than sensual. I almost quit after the first chapter.
Very good narrator.
Worth getting past the first few chapters.

It is just behind the Sweet Series which I love.

Sam-Harry Berkeley does an excellent job with all characters.

Fireworks on the run

The strong sexy alpha males are at it again. This time it’s tough guy Sam the leader of the KG group who breaks his own rules and fall for Sophie. If you like a story with danger and a hot romantic entanglement that is well paced then this is story for you. You’ll find yourself cheering for the good guys. Worth a credit

Good but not great addition to the series

3-3.5 stars

I liked this story. I really liked Sophie and liked seeing her get something good in her life. I was interested to see Sam get his book after meeting him in the first book of the series. TBH, the romance storyline was nearly non-existent through most of the book and Sam didn't treat Sophie very well at times but I'm glad they got their HEA.

Sophie is the daughter of an arms dealer. He's treated her horribly all her life and she hates him with a passion but she can't get free of him and does what she has to until she can escape. When Sam shows up looking to get info on her father, Sophie is sent to investigate Sam and ends up falling for him and they have a brief affair. When Sam leaves to take down an arms shipment of her father's (telling her he wont be back) Sophie thinks she'll never see Sam again, so she takes the opportunity to shoot her father and escape.

Sam is 1 of 3 brothers that run KGI (Kelly Group International), a private company that performs Ops like hostage/kidnap victim recovery & intelligence gathering among other things. He's the oldest of the brothers and focuses on taking care of his family and business. He certainly never planned to get involved with a woman but when he starts seeing Sophie while on an Op he has trouble forgetting her.

5 months after Sam and Sophie were involved, Sophie makes her way to Sam's house, hoping for help. She's 5 months pregnant with Sam's baby and her Uncle's men are hot on her trail, trying to kill her and her baby. She's almost there when she's attacked and almost killed. When Sam finds her floating in the lake out back of his house he's confused and suspicious of why she's there. Garret and Van (2 of his brothers) are there as well and help him treat her injuries and such. Sam is tough with Sophie but isn't really mean. Garret (who I really liked in the last book) acts like a complete jerk about her and the situation and made me feel like maybe I didn't like him so much after all. Sophie isn't sure who to trust. She wants to trust Sam but it's not like they had a real relationship without lies on both sides so she's not sure how much she can trust Sam with. Sam assumes that Sophie should automatically trust him with everything, no questions asked, and gets pissy when she seems unsure about him and their situation. Sam doesn't really give her any reasons to trust him but he does promise to protect Sophie and their baby.

Sophie is forced in to a difficult situation as she needs help but Sam and his brothers are brusque at best. Sam isn't mean but he's certainly not tender and sweet to her. It's kind of understandable, since he doesn't know what to believe (with all the lies between them from before) so he protects he and is kind to her overall...just not very caring or sweet (or anything that would let her think she means anything to him). After some time and handling some problems, it's decided that Sam and Sophie should go to a safe house. Sam finds out that the CIA wants to talk to Sophie about her father and, unbeknownst to Sophie, sets it up so their CIA contact can come question Sophie at the safe house. On the trip to the safe house, Sam and Sophie end getting some time alone. With their time alone, Sam lets his attraction to Sophie take control and he decides she's his and he takes her to take over and he takes Sophie to bed, making her think there might be something between them after all. Sam doesn't talk to Sophie about his change of heart though and also doesn't tell her about the upcoming questioning by the CIA. TBH, I as really hating Sam at this point because he knew she'd see the CIA as a betrayal but he didn't bother to warn her and messed with her feelings by sleeping with her before betraying her. Sure enough, when the CIA becomes involved, Sophie feels betrayed and tries to escape Sam, feeling he can't be trusted either, but she doesn't succeed.

Sophie's Uncle ends up kidnapping a member of the Kelly family and Sophie steps up to help them with retrieval. In the middle of the deal, a surprise comes up that has Sam (wrongly) distrusting Sophie (again!!!) and she ends up putting herself in dangers way to try to save things. Sophie is put in major danger and has to save herself. In the end, Sam realizes that he was wrong to distrust Sophie once again and finally tells her what she means to him. The book ends with them getting a HEA.

I liked the story but I was a little disappointed with it. The action/suspense story was good but the romance side was sadly lacking. It wasn't until the last 1/4 of the book that the romance actually showed up and even then it wasn't solid until right before the end of the story. Overall this was an enjoyable story but don't expect the romance to be sweet in this book. I'm glad Sophie got her HEA, I felt she deserved it after all she went through. I will be reading the next book in the series...lets just hope Garret does better than Sam.
