KGI #11
By Maya Banks
Releasing: March 7th, 2017

Searing action and passion ignite the latest KGI novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Darkest Before Dawn.


The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.
Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.
Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering.
Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t...


As the last unattached member of the Kelly clan, Joe is more than ready to risk life and limb on any mission he’s assigned to, but when it comes to love, he’ll keep his distance. He’s content to watch his brothers become thoroughly domesticated. 

Zoe’s had nothing but heartbreak in her life, and she’s determined to start over with a completely new identity, thanks to her college friend, Rusty Kelly. But it’s the gorgeous smile and tender words of Joe Kelly that begin to weaken her resolve to never risk her heart again. And Joe will have to put everything on the line to save Zoe, when secrets of her past resurface—and threaten to tear them apart…

Stella Cambridge is the daughter to one of the biggest criminals in the US, but she wasn't load, brash or anything you would think a crime bosses daughter would be! She is sweet, kind, shy and just wants her father to love or even care about her, but she know deep down that's not going to happen. But in her need for acceptance, she dates a man that she thought her dad would like. But when she overhears her boyfriend telling someone on the phone that her father doesn't care about her, and he is going to kill her, because she has become a nuisance, Stella runs to the only person that can help her, Rusty Kelly.

After getting Stella set up with the fake name of Zoe, and a new background that no-one would question, Rusty (the baby girl of the Kelly Family) takes her home to the KGI/Kelly compound. But then the  last thing anyone would expect happens, Rusty's oldest "bachelor forever" brother falls for Zoe!...and I'm going to it there, mainly because I have revealed enough info already.

I'm thrilled to be reading another KGI book from the talented Maya Banks, I will be truthfully in saying that I haven't read even half of them, but it doesn't matter, as each story can be read as a standalone, but I will say Brighter than the Sun is a little different than the other KGI books I have read before, as  this is really 1 and a half stories, as it's not only the story of Zoe and Joe, but Rusty and Sean's too.

This book also had me in ugly tears at several point, so for God sake! Keep your Kleenex handy, cause with this amazing plot and writing, you can help but fall in love with all of the characters! And go through the emotional devastation that Zoe, Joe, Rusty and Sean go through! And I will tell you all now!! I'm desperate for Rusty's full story!

Brighter than the Sun is another home run for Maya Banks, which is why I give it 5 stars!!
