THE ALL-NEW KGI NOVEL BY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELING AUTHOR AUTHOR MAYA BANKS

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business. Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background. Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t…

Eden is said to be one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her face has graced countless magazines and her body has sold millions of dollars of clothing. But her fame and beauty has earned her more than she ever imagined. Evil is stalking her, determined to extinguish the ethereal beauty forever.

Swanson or “Swanny” as his teammates call him is always up for the next mission. He came back from Afghanistan wounded and scarred. Hardly the kind of man who even belongs in the same room with Eden. And yet there’s something about the quiet beauty that stirs his blood and makes him dream of the impossible. Because Beauty loving the Beast only happens in fairy tales and KGI doesn’t deal in fairy tales. Ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good read I've enjoyed this series. Although would have liked some more strong women to feature. I hope there is going to be more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When day breaks I could not stop reading. I have been reading for the past 4 hours non stop. Some of the story was repetitive, but I am so glad that Swanny has someone to love him and help him through his deamons. Overall loved it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Struggled to get through it I love all the other KGI books except Donovan and this one. I like a good love story but Donovan and this were so over the top sappy, it almost made you want to gag. The first half of this book was boring and didn't get halfway good until almost the end. Disappointing to say the least. I read this series for the excitement and danger of a hot guy and girl falling in love while trying to survive jungles or something, but this one....ugh.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from When day breaks This book is not as good as the others. Too much dialoque and self doubt and not enough action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great KGI Novel Swanny is easily one of my favorite characters I this series of novels. I love that the man who thinks of himself as ugly, falls in love with a supermodel. It is an amazing story about trusting in love and not allowing our personal demons to stop us from finding that love.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy read but ...... Too much time spent on professions of love both in their thoughts and words. Got really annoying and made me start to skim. Storyline was not great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Most Romantic of All KGI Novels Maya did it again but this time the romance melted my heart altogether. This is by far the most romantic story I've read among all KGI novels. Swanny and Eden have no hesitation in the romance department and never it be said that it lacked the thrill and excitement coz it has enough. Swanny might as well be spelled Swoony coz their story has me swooning the whole time. Maya has really captured my heart with this one. From the no-nonsense admission of their attratction to love for each other and the way secrets were told is a major turn on for me, for lack of a better phrase. I can't wait for the next installment of KGI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KGI: 9 Beauty and the Beast......what a lovely story. I enjoyed it. Low on detailed hard action - wich is what I mostly read -, but a strong Hero (beast) character that was capturing. I enjoyed most of Banks books, but this one is definitely in the top ranks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I highly recommend this book. I will be getting the other KGI books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KGI Series Excellent well written. Great cast r characters and a very good HEA. I thought the put your cards on the table approach might take away from the story line and make it uninteresting, but it didn't. It just became part of this couples dynamic. Who are we to judge. Loved the book!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Do not waste your time. This may be the worst writing I have ever read. The story line was not good and very similar to many other books I have read.

Read from the Book

“Maya Banks writes the kind of books I love to read!”—Lora Leigh, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sins CHAPTER 1BIG Eddie Sinclair sat behind his aged wooden desk in his big empty house—a house that had once been filled with love and laughter—his gnarled, callused hands shaking.Sweat beaded his forehead and ran in thin rivulets down his temples, tracing a line over grooved, aged, weather-beaten skin. His hands shook so badly that the papers he’d been holding fell, scattering on the desk, some sliding onto the floor.He stared up, his gaze unconsciously seeking out the mantel over the fireplace his wife had insisted on having installed in his working space. She hadn’t wanted him to ever get cold. The idea that Big Eddie Sinclair’s gentle wife had been concerned that he’d get cold would have gotten him laughed out of the barracks. His badass buddies would never let him hear the end of it.Eddie was a big man. A killer. Trained by the best. And in turn he had trained the best. But right now he felt as helpless as a newborn babe. Fear, an emotion that until the day his first child was born had been completely alien to him, gripped him by the balls, freezing his insides. He rubbed at his chest in an effort to alleviate the discomfort and closed his eyes, trying to rid himself of the images the threat had invoked.He’d lived his life knowing that he was invincible. He wasn’t egotistical. Men who served with the men he served with didn’t think they were good. They knew t
