No Place to Run ( KGI 2) by Maya Banks

Hello to all,

                 To be honest, my first intention today was to tell you about a new series i really LOVED but i'm supposed to read and speak of a sequel first so that little pearl will be told about next time (really soon i think).

For sequel, i opted for a romance suspense as it's what i tend to read more in summer ( even if we are still waiting for a summer weather here) and i went back to a series i put aside wait too long: The KGI series by Maya Banks and its second instlament.

Happy reading!

Description from goodreads :

 Sam Kelly was her first love.

The last person Sam Kelly expected to pull wounded from the lake was Sophie Lundgren. Once they shared a brief, intense affair while Sam was undercoverand then she vanished. She’s spent the last months on the run, knowing that any mistake would cost her life and that of her unborn child—Sam’s child. Now she’s resurfaced with a warning for Sam: this time, he’s the one in danger.

Now he’s her last chance.

Sam has too many questions to let her slip away again—like why she disappeared in the first place. This time he vows not to be seduced. But one look in her eyes, and the passion burns again, and Sam knows he’ll do anything to keep her and his child safe. However, Sophie’s dark past is more dangerous than he imagines, and the only way for either to survive it is to outrun it.

My opinion:
          While i enjoyed to return to the Kelly family and KGI crew this second instalment is far from my favourite...perhaps because Sam isn't my favourite brother or perhaps because as the oldest i had more expectation  for him... i mean he is the "chief", the head of KGI and his behaviour didn't fit  at all with that position at several  times.

While undercover he felt in love not that professional ( could have at least checked the background of the girl just as security for his teammates) but then love isn't something we always can resist so that part was even a bit cute . However when after and when the situation is muddy to say the least he jump back into  old behaviours not very careful of the risk, worse he put his brothers in danger. Not on purpose but by running blindly into danger he forces them to follow....

Sophie is stronger than she looks and she has morals ( which considering her family is a big feat)..she does try to protect her lover , even if as military he is not that helpless, and only try to get his help when she has no choice. Even then she didn't expect to put his family on the line either and she takes great risks to protect them without really thinking about her own security.... I know she had no choice at all at first and had to lie about her identity so  i'm not angry at her but  i couldn't really relate to her either.

The plot and investigation was fast paced and well written but what i prefered was to have news of Ethan and to see more of some secondary characters like Rio and brothers like Donovan ... i'm really curious about their story . Garret won points too...the big teddybear in hiding^^.

All together it wasn't a bad instalment, he could even be read out of order.

Score:  3/5
