The last 4 books in this series seem more like another series by MB, and not KGI. The insta love and focus on relationship more than action is so UTTERLY disappointing. And I understand the need for vulnerability in the female characters, but geez!! Dail it back a little, will you? If I wanted that level of weakness I would have read the Enforcers series. And the repetition!!! Just wow......The last book in this series that had a good balance of relationship to action was Cole and PJ's story. I felt that this storyline was too watered down. For Joe to get so upset over Zoe's emotional treatment just felt too silly. I am holding out for Rusty and Sean's story only because I have been waiting for YEARS to read it. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a hard hitting, action packed story with a little love in between. MB has spent years cultivating this character--please do her justice!!

This series started off so well with Rachel and Ethan, but has become the laziest type of insta-love writing. There is zero believability in the "love" relationship. Instead of wasting time talking to themselves or other characters over and over about this unexplainable unfounded "connection" made in a day, maybe spend that time on rich dialogue between the H and H or actions that actually SHOW redeemable qualities specifically in Zoe! The only reason to read this book is for Rusty and Sean! Their book better be the next book because I can't endure another one like this!

This is what I would call a pivotal book for a few reasons. First Rusty is front and centre as the Kelly giving aid, she manages to out geek Donavan, and shows how she has matured since The Darkest Hour. Next it sets up events for what will be, after 2 more books, the last KGI book - Rusty's story, things have moved on from being an immature crush to having more adult feeling. Sean manages to blow it big time leaving Rusty with no reason to stay anymore but she does come back for a wedding, and it is at that wedding that the Kelly men realise that Sean & Rusty have a thing for each other, (took them long enough).
Joe is the Kelly man to fall this time and after being somewhat resistant initially he falls hard and fast after just 2 dates. Its nice to see how he knows something is amiss so handles Zoe with gentlemanly care and allows her to some degree to set the pace. When Zoe goes missing Joe like the rest of KGI goes all out to find his woman and bring her home safe.
Since this story happens in and around the compound, there are lots of updates on other Kelly's as well as on some of the team members. For anyone who has read Steele's story then here again you get to see his softer side and it is ROFL when he tells KGI Maren expecting again. Then later when he finds a beat up Zoe he goes all out to protect her & follow her wished even when that means standing in front of Zoe's hospital door to block a raging Joe from getting to her. The scene where he persuades Zoe to come with him was heart breaking to read.
Overall this book has 2 intertwined stories that of Zoe & Joe and the continuing sage of Rusty & Sean. They blend seamlessly and enhance each other, leading to a very entertaining read. This is one of the better reads from the series, with the reader left in no doubt about what is happening and what is being set up to happen. ENJOY!!!
