Review: No Place to Run by Maya Banks (Rating 4 Wine Glasses)

Posted January 19, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 2 Comments


From Goodreads: The last person Sam Kelly expected to save was Sophie Lundgren. Once they shared a brief, intense affair while Sam was undercover and then she vanished. She’s spent the last few months on the run, knowing that any mistake would cost her both her life and that of their unborn child. Now she’s resurfaced with a warning for Sam: this time, he’s the one in danger.

Bought from Amazon for Book Club

What I Loved:  I love the Kelly brothers, their mom/dad, and all the extended family.  This continuation of their lives was even better than the first book.  Sam was a good brother to feature in this book and Sophie is the perfect gal for him.  As always, the action was fast paced and well thought out.  The brothers interactions were fun, blunt, and at one point had me laughing out loud. 

What I Liked: Maya is really good with detail.  This really was like reading a military thriller with romance.  She doesn’t skimp on the action or the thought behind tracking the bad guy.

Complaints: The next book isn’t until March 🙁

Why I gave it a 4:  I would read this book again (probably will)!  It was a fantastic read, well paced, and the Kelly brothers are fascinating.  I was even more impressed with this book than the first book in the series (though that one was really good too)!

Who I would recommend this too: Contemporary Romance readers
