After the Storm by 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… 

Over the years, Donovan Kelly has fought relentlessly for justice, women and children always holding a special place in his heart. Working side by side with his brothers, Donovan has witnessed firsthand the toll it’s taken—physically, mentally, and emotionally—on his loved ones, and the innocent lives caught in the crossfire. What he never expects is for his next mission to happen right on his home turf—or for it to take a very personal turn.

Picturesque Kentucky Lake is the perfect place for a soul in search of safe harbor. A beautiful stranger has arrived—desperate, breathless, and on the run from a dark past closing in on her and the younger siblings she has vowed to protect. Donovan must now draw on every resource at his disposal—if he wants to save a woman and the children who may prove to be his destiny.

Review: ~by Micaela

I would give this book a 3/5 stars. I felt that this story was very repetitive and I felt that Donovan and Eve's insta-love relationship should have been written differently. I don't really like insta-love, but that's just me. Their relationship went way too fast when it should have been stretched out for a bit longer. They only knew each other for a few days before they felt that they loved each other, even though they didn't say it out loud. The characters liked to repeat things they had said previously.... a lot! At first it didn't really bother me, but after a while I was just trying to get through the book so that I could see how the story turns out. The general storyline I really liked, but the pacing of Donovan and Eve's relationship wasn't what I would have hoped for. Overall this book was ok, but I wish it had been better.
