No Place to Run by Maya Banks
(Series: KGI, #2)
April 16, 2013
What an action packed book! Sophie comes from a cruel world—one in which she is mercilessly used by her father to lure in former operative and head of KGI, Sam Kelly. They have a little fling – no questions asked, no promises made …just a little hook up on the side. Real life soon returns though and Sophie finds herself in a lot of trouble. She’s pregnant and on the run. Sam is her only hope. After Sam’s mission fails, he returns home disgusted and frustrated, remembering the only bright spot during that time – Sophie. What follows is a great story of action, suspense, and a developing relationship hinging on trust issues for both Sophie and Sam. Oh, and things get a little hot under the covers!
What I liked:
I loved the complexity of the relationship between Sophie and Sam. There were so many obstacles; it didn’t seem possible for them to ever be together. I’d already read book #1 of the series though, so I knew there was an HEA in there somewhere. The journey of getting there was great!
What I didn’t like:
I don’t like that Sam sometimes refers to Sophie as Soph; however, this is really a personal issue so pay no mind. I will say that in doing so, the author clearly defines a state of connection and intimacy between Sophie and Sam before it comes into play. If it had to be done, it was done in good taste.
Overall it is a 4.5 star read for me, and I am looking forward to book #3 of the series.
