A KGI Novel, Book 2
Reviewed by Talia Ricci
In Mexico working undercover to thwart an arms shipment, Sam Kelly finds himself drawn to waitress Sophie Lundgren. Each encounter with her leaves both of them wanting more, but only Sophie knows the truth. Their love can never be because of Sophie’s father. The father that put her up to seducing Sam. The same father that wants to know exactly what Sam and his group of private warriors are doing. Sophie, however, has a plan of her own and it doesn’t include answering to her father any longer – so she disappears.
Sam hasn’t forgotten the erotic interlude he spent with Sophie five months ago. She was his match in everything that matters. Passionate and innocent all rolled into one neat package, that was Sophie. Sam has accepted the fact that she has vanished without a trace from his life, but he refuses to forget her. And then the unthinkable happens, she is found half dead in his lake and pregnant. Wary but ecstatic to have her back in his life, Sam knows that keeping his woman and child safe is of utmost importance.
Then Sophie’s secrets threaten their very existence and it will take all the cunning, passion, and trust of both Sam and Sophie to contain the evil that is her past.
If you liked Sam in The Longest Hour, be prepared to adore him in No Place to Run. There is just something about Sam Kelly that appeals to the ultra feminine side of me as a reader. He is sexy, that is a given. But it is also more than just his looks. His persona as a warrior and caregiver is just what Sophie needs to keep herself and their child safe. Both have secrets that must be unlocked before they can move forward and while they are rediscovering each other – and it is a rediscovery – their lives are threatened. Both come out better for it. Their love is stronger, their commitment greater, and their satisfaction all the more sweet.
I Joyfully recommend the story of Sam and Sophie. No Place to Run, Maya Banks’ second installment of her Kelly International Group series is divine! The suspense is intense, the passion is heady, Sam and his brothers are drool-worthy, and the love he and Sophie share is real. Definitely read Maya Banks’ newest romantic suspense, No Place to Run, your heart will be glad you did!
