Review for Darkest Before Dawn by Maya Banks

THE ALL-NEW KGI NOVEL from the “incredibly awesome" (Jaci Burton) #1 New York Timesbestselling author of When Day Breaks.

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...

The enigmatic Hancock has been both opponent and ally to the KGI teams for as long as they've known him. Always working a deep game, Hancock's true allegiance has never been apparent, but one thing is for certain—he never lets anything get in the way of duty.

But now, his absolute belief in the primacy of his ultimate goal is challenged by a captive he's been ordered to guard, no matter how much she suffers in her prison. She's the only woman who's ever managed to penetrate the rigid walls surrounding his icy heart, but will he allow his perplexing feelings for the beautiful victim to destroy a mission he's spent years working to complete or will he be forced to sacrifice her for “the greater good.”

Let me start off by saying that I really love Maya Banks. There have only been a few books of hers that I didn't like and KGI has always been one of my favorites. I have been so looking forward to Hancock's book. I just knew there was something about him that made him very "KGI like" and Ms. Banks did not disappoint me. This wasn't my favorite KGI book, but it was still a great read. I adore and I mean adore Honor. She is such a fiercely brave woman who doesn't know the word quit or give up. And Hancock is also in that mindset. I loved watching Hancock fall for the fiery woman. My stomach was in knots reading the inevitable decision that Hancock was faced with. It broke my heart watching both Hancock and Honor deal with all the struggles. I will also say, that it did take me a little bit to really get into the book, but once I got to about 25% it took off and I didn't put it down until I was finished. I also really loved seeing a little bit of the Kelly clan make an appearance. I look forward to reading more KGI books. I am really, really hoping that all of Hancock's men get their own stories as well. I give this one 4 AMAZEBALLS stars. A copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.
