No Place To Run

Published December 7th 2010 by Berkley

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 undercover and 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.

Another touchdown for the KGI series!

And it's a football analogy because baseball's homerun version didn't necessarily apply. I got a lot of frustration out of this one. Sam developed a tendency to annoy me and Sophie... well, I just didn't believe in her the way I did Rachel.

Sophie met Sam Kally, the eldest of the Kelly brothers, a number of months ago while playing spy for her father. She fell in love and bed with the guy and not necessarily in that order. With the intensity of her emotions fueling her, Sophia finally finds the will to escape her father and with cold blood staining her hands proceeds to spend the next five months running for her life. Pregnant all the while.

When she can't handle the constant moving and evading anymore, Sophie finally runs to Sam for protection for herself and their unborn daughter. When the evil forces that are giving chase take Sam's mother as hostage things get even more serious. Especially on top of Sam's father's suffering of a heart attack.

All brothers are back in action. Even Ethan and Rachel can't stay away. And Rusty is still the strange tag along to the family. Still waiting on Sean's purpose. He's not enough of a man for PJ so he basically lacks any purpose whatsoever with me. Wouldn't mind if he took a bullet and disappeared altogether. Harsh, I know.(PJ is the only female member of KGI, or what may be a team that only assists KGI)

LOVED Kyle Philips' entrance. The moment he said his name I was like ahlright!

The most disappointing little tidbit of this story was the fact that Sophie had a girl. This from a man who descends from a guy who sired six sons. I feel Sam got jipped. Though I have nothing against grand-daughters. 4 out of 5 stars.

Garrett is next. A guy with a serious weakness for women. But it's a good weakness. He's very close to Rachel and he nearly gave his life for Sophie. Still... I'm looking forward to Donovan's story the most. He being the favored son and all. =)

I keep wondering what Sean's purpose is as well. I get the feeling that maybe Maya keeps him hanging around for when Rusty grows up to throw them together...idk

Sounds good to me! I could live with that.

Hey! Tasha did a Tuesday's Teaser with the same book! Mighty hilarious to boot.

LOL. You feel like Sam got jipped. So the baby's Sam's? Huh, that's interesting, if it's his, he is genetically predisposed to have a son. *shrugs* Oh well.
