Review of When Day Breaks (KGI #9) 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…

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. 

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Beauty and the Beast have nothing on Swanny and Eden in book 9 of Maya Banks KGI series, When Day Breaks.  She rocks her readers as always with a steamy action filled romance that is highlighted with military maneuvers that save the day.  The characters and mission are developed in the way in which the Kelly group reacts and behaves when they are called on to save the world.  They are exciting and riveting and leave the reader gasping for breath and rooting for the KGI home team.  The characters are beautifully crafted in a way that any reader can relate too and love.

Daryl "Swanny" Swanson has become an integral part of the KGI family.  He has his own demons to battle with from his capture and captivity in the Afghani Mountains while he served with an elite military group.  Swanny is scarred physically and mentally.  But being a part of the KGI family and a member of one of their teams, has given him new purpose and a new found reason to live.  However, on the latest mission, Swanny is thrust into a situation that he never expected.  He has caught the attention of the team's newest mission, Eden Sinclair.  And Eden wants more than Swanny ever thought possible.  Will he be able to complete what's required of him on this mission, as well as capture Eden’s heart, while saving her? Is he her Beast?

Eden Sinclair is labeled as the most beautiful woman in the world.  She's a top model and her career is very important to her.  Although, she's beautiful on the outside, Eden is a genuine person who loves with her whole heart.  And her heart is set on Daryl "Swanny" Swanson from the moment she laid eyes on him.  Eden knew that Swanny was a member of her brother's unit during his time in Afghanistan, but she never knew that she would feel so much from just one look. Her beast maybe scarred on the outside, but he is a beautiful prince underneath!

This book was filled with adventure, passion and an unrelenting theme of family, loyalty and honor.  Every one of Maya Bank's KGI books is nothing short of awesomeness.  She has a way of drawing the reader in and keeping them held captive until the very end.  This book and series would be a great addition to anyone’s library!
