5 Hearts, Maya Banks

Maya Banks – KGI #6 – Shades of Grey

13411699Badass Wonder Woman went rogue. And she is out for blood…


P.J. and Cole were sharpshooting rivals on the same KGI team and enjoyed a spirited, uncomplicated camaraderie. Until the night they gave in to their desires and suddenly took their relationship one step further. In the aftermath of their one-night stand, they’re called out on a mission that goes terribly wrong, and P.J. walks away from KGI, resolved not to drag her teammates into the murky shadows she’s poised to delve into. 

Six months later, Cole hasn’t given up his search for P.J., and he’s determined to bring her back home where she belongs. Bent on vengeance, P.J. has plunged into a serpentine game of payback that will make her question everything she’s ever believed in. But Cole-and the rest of their team-refuse to let her go it alone. Even if it means sacrificing their loyalty to KGI, and their lives…

“She wanted happily ever after more than he could possibly know. She wanted forever. Problem was, she just wasn’t sure she believed in it anymore. It was why she clung to her fiction so much. She immersed herself in books because there she could be anyone and it was easy to believe in love and happily ever after”

KGI is your family. Even if you do not want it to be. And P.J. has to learn it. Has to come to terms with what happened to her, maybe deal with it in her own way. I always new P.J. was badass. Of course, she is still a woman. But can kick ass nonetheless.

After a mission goes terribly wrong, P.J. sets out on her own shadowy path, seeking revenge on those who dragged her down. Not taking assistance from the group she thinks let her down. But Cole is not one to give up. He will do anything to help her, accept her, make her see what he sees. A strong, capable, sharpshooter woman who cannot be destroyed that easily. If he needs to go down with her to Crazyland, then he will do exactly that.

“A good friend will bail you out when you land in jail, but a very good friend will be sitting beside you in that jail cell.” 

I think they were the most cheesy, most adorable couple in the whole series. I loved them, and I felt sorry for what happened to P.J. But in the end, she did not let this define her, and that is exactly the reason I admire the hell out of her. Well, that too. Another fantastic, fast-paced action-romance book from Maya Banks. Fans of her or the KGI series will absolutely love it.
