Sam Kelly was her first love.
The last person Sam Kelly expected to pull wounded from the lake was Sophie Lundgren. Once they shared a brief, intense affair while Sam was undercover and then she vanished. She's spent the last months on the run, knowing that any mistake would cost her life and that of her unborn child—Sam's child. Now she's resurfaced with a warning for Sam: this time, he's the one in danger.
Now he's her last chance.
Sam has too many questions to let her slip away again—like why she disappeared in the first place. This time he vows not to be seduced. But one look in her eyes, and the passion burns again, and Sam knows he’ll do anything to keep her and his child safe. However, Sophie’s dark past is more dangerous than he imagines, and the only way for either to survive it is to outrun it.
Sam Kelly completely intrigued me in the first book, so I was really excited to find out what made the level-headed oldest Kelly brother tick.
Sam was, oh-so-damn-sexy in this book. He burned up the pages from the get go!! It really surprised me, but then not really…I mean, they do say to watch out for those quiet ones, don’t they? ;) And Sam Kelly is one to keep an eye on, that’s for sure! Actually, I wouldn’t mind keeping more than my eye on him. *sigh*
So, ok, he’s damn sexy…but he’s also strong, passionate, loyal, and smart. He is the person you want at your side when all goes to hell. Sophie definitely needed that person. Poor Sophie. She’s had a rough life. But she has such a strong character and she’s incredibly brave and protective. I really admired that about her. Sam and Sophie’s connection was clearly physical…with something else that was inexplicable to either of them at first. Once reunited, it’s both easy but complicated. So many secrets between them, but yet their connection is as strong as ever.
Though the rest of the Kellys are in this book, their presence is not as dominant as in the first book. The enemy in this one is pretty ruthless, which made for a nail-biting story. There are kidnappings and gun fights, explosions and people getting shot in the head…more than once. lol
No Place to Run is definitely not lacking in action or suspense and especially not lacking in romance. A great sequel in the KGI series and I am absolutely looking forward to reading Garrett’s story next.
