What. A. Ride. I laughed, I cried, I was scared, anxious, repulsed (quite literally sick to my stomache). I cheered and I cursed. This story was intense from beginning to end. If you have not read any other KGI novel, i dont recommend you star with this one. Its a great book, though it has very strong subjects that not everyone will be able to sit thru. If you are not a kgi rookie, you are sure to love this one. PJ & Cole are well matched. Shes tough as nails, and he is man enough to deal with it. Gotta love a man who so secure enough to love a strong woman, and still let her be who she is!

I was kind of disappointed with this book. Loved all the KGI books and could not wait to see PJ and Cole together. Preordered this books SIX monts ago! It started great, really intense, but then deflated for pages and pages. One of the reviewers criticized that the book only had sex scenes in the first pages. It is true but that was not the problem. Besides, you understand that PJ needs time to heal. The problem was that there was no storyline or substance to keep the reader's interest and it became boring. It improved a little bit in the end, but it was not enough.

    My favorite part about this was the opening scene, which grabs you and sits you right down at that bar table with a kick-ass heroine and her beer. The story got a little testosterone-heavy with all the brothers and their weapons, and one scene was flat-out ridiculous, but for the most part it was an entertaining read.

    Highly recommend.

    I enjoyed the book and love the series. Although there were things in the story that were hard to get through, due to the content. However the story was great if not a little short. I was happy and surprised by the addition to Rachel and Ethan's story. Another great book to the KGI series, again ready the caused some tears. Nevertheless I'll continue to read not only this series but all of Maya Banks book over and over.

    Just ok..

    Decent read. Not what I was expecting, thought there would be more action, but is more of a romance novel...with some action thrown in. Not my cup of tea.

    I haven't been reading Maya Banks for very long. In fact, I star

    I haven't been reading Maya Banks for very long. In fact, I started with Whispers in the Dark and loved it so much that I purchased the rest of the series. I was looking forward to PJ and Cole's story. It was good overall, but I really, REALLY, didn't like what happened "when the mission went wrong." KGI and it's crew are better at their jobs than this portrays. PJ shows her wounded, human side, and then the story gets back on track. I love a happy ending, and PJ truly deserves hers with Cole.

    I loved the book until......I was looking forward to a great end

    I loved the book until......I was looking forward to a great ending, as in all her other books, but it didn't happen. I don't understand
    why Banks didn't finish the story, would have been so much better. Even if she plans to continue in a new book, this one, imo, left too much undone.
