    a great thriller

    Pregnant Sophie Lundgren knows the risk she takes to herself and her unborn, but feels she must. She searches for the father of her baby Sam Kelly to warn him he is in trouble though she expects a cold welcome as she ran away from him five months ago.

    Sophie is wounded in her quest to find him. Sam is stunned not just because his beloved Sophie is hurt though he is concerned after pulling her out of the nearby Kentucky Lake; it is the pregnancy, which he knows is his child. Hoping he learned from his previous mistake of losing his beloved Sophie, but still unsure why she suddenly vanished several months ago, Sam vows to keep her and their unborn safe. He has no intention of letting the love of his life go again whether Sophie wants him or not.

    The second KGI (Kelly Group International) romantic suspense (see The Darkest Hour) is a great thriller that grips the audience from the opening moment of Sophie's return and never slows down until the final climax. Fans will appreciate this strong entry summarized by pregnant Sophie who understands first hand the naturing vs. nurturing debate as she prays her two categorical negatives multiplies into a positive as Sam believes they will.

    One hot and sexy read

    No Place To Run by Maya Banks is an intense story of romance and suspense.

    Sophie Lundgren had been on the run for months. Men who worked for her father were hot on her trail and Sophie only had one person left to protect her. Sophie knew her former lover Sam Kelly would protect her once he found out she was carrying his child. But would Sam forgive her when he found out the truth about Sophie?

    Sam Kelly never strayed off the path before on a mission with KGI until he met Sophie. His focus should have been on his job but thoughts of Sophie kept flooding his brain. Suddenly Sophie reappears after a several months absence, nearly drowning in the lake by Sam's cabin.

    Sam is shocked to reunite with Sophie, the pregnancy alone boggles his mind but her story of her family threatens everything he holds dear.

    Can Sam trust Sophie and her story or will her enemies take the matters out of both their hands?

    No Place to Run is a fast ride of emotion and terror. The men of the Kelly Group are tough as nails but are tender to those they love. Sam Kelly is the perfect example of a strong but sensitive man. His and Sophie relationship grows and chances as they really learn more about each other. You will not be able to put this book down once you start it. I am so glad I found this series. Bring on the next KGI agent.

    Wow... now I have to buy the rest of the series.

    This was a really good book. It wasn't your typical romance/sex novel it actually had a really good plot- and the plot was, you know, most of the book. I'm going to buy the third in the series. Most definitely worth a read or two.

    Ok

    Book plot was ok. I could do without the constant use of the Lords name in vain. It took away from the story.

    I read the first book for my book club and I was hooked. It took me one day to read this book and the others!! Banks has a fun way of pulling you into the story and not just for the romance but for the action that happens in each of these books. I love this Series and am desperately waiting for the next one to come out!!! Thanks Maya Banks for these fun amazing books!!

    Overall Rating: 3.80
    Action: 3.5 / Emotion: 3.0 / Romance: 3.5 / Sensuous: 3.5 / Suspense: 3.5 // Laughter: 5 / Giggle: 8 // Tears: 0 / Teary: 2

    No Place To Run:  3.80
    While this book was entertaining and enjoyable, it didn't rock my world, even though it is better than the first book of the series.  Sadly, Banks did not generate that intensity, that emotional connection, that special something that makes you want to pick up the next book and keep reading about the members of KGI.

    Hero: 3.0:
    Sam Kelly: one of those strong, handsome, hunky, alpha Kelly boys that is supposed to melt a reader's heart simply because he looked great on the cover and could kick butt.  Banks painted Sam as a single-dimensional character, with nothing special to set him apart from the other Kelly boys.

    Heroine: 3.0:
    Sophie Lundgren:  Under-developed.  The only three defining characteristics that Banks assigned to Sophie were, {1} she loved her baby beyond measure and would do anything to protect her, {2} she dreamed of having a family full of love, just like Sam's, and {3} she didn't give up.

    Story Line: 4.0:
    Excellent premise.  The good guy and the bad guy's daughter are throw together five months after having a torrid affair and they must learn to trust one another so that they can save their own lives and the lives of their family from the pursuit of the illegal arms dealer trying to kill them.

    Action: 3.5:
    Enough action, particularly near the end of the book to add excitement and adventure to the book.

    Emotion: 3.0:
    Banks fails to connect the reader to the characters on a deep, emotional, 'I know this person' level.

    Romance: 3.5:
    It was difficult to feel those special soft feelings that are supposed to develop between the hero and heroine of a romance novel because Sam and Sophie didn't do the 'getting to know one another' thing.

    Sensuous: 3.5:
    Sam and Sophie's engage in extremely passionate, hot and heavy, slightly graphic sex frequently.

    Suspense: 3.5:
    Because Banks spent so much time trying to feature the unity between the Kelly family, she failed to create that spine-tingling, edge-of-your-seat suspenseful aura that makes for a great Romantic Suspense read.  

    Secondary Characters:  2.0:
    Minimally developed secondary characters: {1} Frank Kelly, {2} Marlene Kelly, {3} Garrett Kelly, {4} Donovan Kelly, {5} Ethan Kelly, {6} Rachel Kelly, {7} Sean, {8} Rusty, {9} Adam Resnick, {10} Steele, {11} Rio, {12} P.J. [Rutherford], {13} [David] "Cole" [Coletrane], {14} Alex Mouton, and {15} Tomas Mouton.

    No Place to Run, the second installment in the KGI series, begin

    No Place to Run, the second installment in the KGI series, begins with former Army Ranger Sam Kelly working undercover, in Mexico, to take down Alex Mouton—a ruthless arms dealer. While there, he meets Sophie Lundgren in a local bar and they embark on an explosively passionate affair. For two weeks Sam and his brothers pose as buyers, blend in with the locals, and … nothing. Then one morning Sam receives an anonymous tip about an upcoming arms shipment. It’s the first potential break KGI has had in their mission to take Mouton and his extensive network down. With much regret, Sam leaves Sophie behind telling her that he doesn’t know when—or if—he’ll be back. But nothing about the mission goes according to plan. KGI manages to take down a huge shipment of weapons but Alex Mouton disappears without a trace, and when Sam goes back for Sophie, he finds that she too has vanished. 

    Five months later, when Sam pulls a barely conscious, wounded woman out of Kentucky Lake he’s shocked to discover that it’s Sophie Lundgren, and she’s … pregnant. She’s spent months on the run knowing that any mistake would cost her her life, and that of her unborn child. Sam has many questions—like what happened to her, who is she running from, why she disappeared in the first place, how she found him, and most importantly, is she pregnant with his child? He’s angry and suspicious, but he’ll do everything in his power to protect her and their unborn child. Sophie’s past, however, is more dangerous than Sam could ever imagine, and this time, he and his family are the ones in danger …

    A wonderfully suspenseful, action packed thrill ride from start to finish! One of the things that I love about the KGI series is that the Kelly family is fiercely loyal. They’ll do anything for each other. No conditions. Then of course, there are the men of KGI—protective, possessive and incredibly tender despite their tough, alpha-male exteriors. The women of this series are no shrinking violets either. No Place to Run is a passionate story of desire, secrets, lies, regret, sacrifice, and love, with a satisfying HEA.

    Banks definitely captures your heart with this one!  The action

    Banks definitely captures your heart with this one!  The action packed storyline keeps you riveted to the pages while the emotional interactions between the characters make the story oh-so-real.  This is a well written, well plotted novel.  Banks’ consistency & attention to detail really make this one stand out.  It was intensely exhilarating and kept me hooked.  I wouldn’t put it down for a second and easily devoured it in a single sitting while the rest of the world faded away.  

    Banks has developed some amazing characters for this novel.  I loved the fact that I didn’t like everyone.  Banks makes it easy for you to get to know and understand all of her characters, but not necessarily to like them.  I did really enjoy getting to know the main characters here.  The contrast between them and their backgrounds made them all the more intriguing.  

    As a whole, this was a very captivating & enjoyable novel.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others, nor can I wait to read more from this amazing series.

    I love the KGI stories. This one was Sam and Sophie's story and

    I love the KGI stories. This one was Sam and Sophie's story and even with their romance, the events that brought KGI into it and how they handled everything were amazing and had me turning the pages quickly.

    When Sam was working undercover in Mexico, he met Sophie and he can't get her out of his mind after they both go their own ways. Sam doesn't know that Sophie's father is the arms dealer who he is trying to catch. It gets complicated because Sophie's father knows that Sam and the KGI guys are after him so he gets Sophie to seduce Sam and try to find out what they are doing. Sophie appears to go along with her father's suggestion but she has a different plan. Sophie shoots her father, steals a key to his vault holding his secrets and goes on the run for 5 months when she finally goes to Sam for help. Oh yeah, she is pregnant with Sam's child, too.

    Like all the KGI books, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat.  Sam and his brothers don't know if they can/should trust Sophie but since she is carrying Sam's child, they want to protect her.  Protecting people is ingrained in them so that's what they do.

    I recommend this book especially if you like military or ex-military stories.
