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.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Who you gonna call when trouble comes a knockin'? Call KGI they are always on the job.  In this explosively exciting novel by Maya Banks, After the Storm book 8, the Kelly brothers are fighting for truth, justice, family and the American way of life.  In this book, Donovan Kelly finally gets his story.  Although it's through unlikely circumstances, he meets the beautifully broken Eve and knows without a doubt that this girl is his.  The characters that are in play help to create the bold and audacious events, as the plot thickens in a way that only the Kelly's are known for.  

Donovan Kelly is a computer genius, with all the skills of a kick ass ex-marine.  Being one of the founding brothers of KGI, there missions take them to places no one else wants to go.  Donovan has always had a soft spot for women and children more so than the rest of his brooding brothers, but it doesn’t make him any softer than the rest.  When he finds a woman and two kids in trouble, there’s no doubt what he has to do.  But this time it’s personal…this time his heart is breaking in two for the little family that has come into his life.  Donovan Kelly will stop at nothing to keep them safe, give them hope, and make them his!

Eve is running for her life, the life of her brother and baby sister’s as well.  She had to flee, had to save them from the abuse, the monster that was their father.  Broken down in a small town in Kentucky, everything began to change for them.  They met the Kelly family and most of all Donovan Kelly.  Someone she could fall in love with.  But that wasn’t a choice.  Her choices were few and far between.  Run and keep running, never get caught, her small families lives depended upon it.  However, when tragedy strikes, there is no choice but to trust Donovan and hope for the best.

Like everything else that Maya Banks creates, Donovan’s story is yet another work of art.  Maintaining the intricacies of the KGI series, with a beautifully woven love story of trust, exploration and passion.  Out of all the Kelly brothers, Donovan was the one I was looking forward to reading the most.  His character always being so passionate and protective, it was a thrill for him to finally get his HEA!  This book as well as the rest of the KGI series is a must read!  Add it to you list today!
