Brighter Than the Sun is the latest installment in the KGI series by Maya Banks, and fans of the series have been waiting for the last Kelly brother to meet his match. While I loved the book and the main couple Joe and Zoe, it was the scenes with Sean and Rusty that got me the most.

Okay, back to Joe and Zoe – there was such a sweetness between these two and it wasn’t hard to root for them. When the end of the book came around I was surprised it was already over because I was enjoying the whole book that much.
Zoe Kildare has had a shitty life thus far. Her mother left when she was only five, and being the only daughter of a drug kingpin who doesn’t give a crap about her, left her vulnerable to being used by the wrong guy. She overhears a phone call where the man she thought she loved was talking about how he had been forced to sleep with her to get to her dad, and then casually mentions that he’s going to kill her since its clear the old man doesn’t care about her. Scared and having nowhere to turn, she calls her one and only friend from college Rusty. As it turns out, Rusty is a badass who can outdo even Donovan in the technology department. Rusty creates a new identity complete with full background and then takes Zoe home with her to hide out and regroup. [Read more…]
