Most people would take an all-expense=paid trip to the beach in a heartbeat. Garrett Kelly only accepts to keep tabs on Sarah Daniels, who's in hiding after witnessing a murder committed by her half brother-a personal enemy of KGI. But Garrett hadn't planned on falling for Sarah. When he glimpses her dark past, he feels an urgent desire to keep her safe-even as she disappears, running for her life.
Garrett Kelly is a marine and oldest son of the Kelly clan. In the last book, he was shot when they went to rescue Sophie, his brother’s pregnant wife. In this book, he was still recuperating from his injury when KGI got another assignment. Garrett was sent to find Marcus Lattimer, a well known arms dealer, traitor and personal enemy of the KGI guys. The only thing Marcus cared about was his half sister Sarah Daniels, so the CIA knew she would be their best lead to find Lattimer.
As Garrett gets to know Sarah, he finds that she was not what he thought she was. Also, Sarah becomes so comfortable with Garrett that she began sharing her secrets with him. What will Sarah do when she finds out that Garrett was really up to.
This one was really good because Garrett was the less friendly Kelly, the grumpy, suspicious big brother. It must have been a hoot for his brothers to see Garrett fall hard for his mark. I think her vulnerability really called to the normally unemotional Garrett. Sarah was a likable heroine. I like the strength she continued to exhibit because she made a lot of choices to protect the ones she cared for. Garrett and Sarah had great chemistry and it was fun following their journey together.
The subplot I truly enjoyed was the story with Rusty. The female Kelly was due to have a change in attitude and to have her place with the Kelly’s solidified.
I am surprised at how much I am enjoying this story but I guess I shouldn’t be as I loved Maya Banks two historical romances. The story telling is face paced and it’s predictable enough that I feel comfortable with where the author is going. I will try to read the next book next week.
