Taking it All

Taking it All (Surrender Trilogy, #3)Taking it All by Maya Banks
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I had a really hard time with this one. This was not a situation where ‘love conquers all’ comes into play. I don’t see any woman forgiving her husband for the situation Tate put Chessy in. She could have come to serious harm all because he stepped out for a second to try to reel in a client after promising to put her first. There are just some things in life that are unforgiveable; no factor that would shed a different light on the situation. I’m sorry to say part of it was Chessy’s fault for putting so much trust and faith into Tate after such an extended period of being last on his priority list.

The writing overall was on par. I just can’t get past the storyline and the fact that two to three weeks later everything was all good and they are going to live happily ever after. Taking it All was a very disappointing installment/finale for the series. If you have read the previous two book, you won’t really lose anything by not reading this one.

Forged in Steele

Forged in Steele (KGI, #7)Forged in Steele by Maya Banks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The seventh book in the KGI series brings us the story of Jackson Steele aka Iceman, leader of arguably the best of the KGI teams. Forged in Steele gives fans of the series a chance to catch up with some of the main characters from previous installments but it can also stand alone for new readers.

Dr. Maren Scofield is intimately familiar with KGI since her rescue from Africa. She runs a free clinic in rural Costa Rica but she also helps patch up injured KGI members when necessary. Steele aka Iceman, rarely spoke to Maren during all of their previous encounters. She thought it was because he didn’t like her. Come to find out, he was fighting his attraction to her the only way he knew how, by being stoic to the point of being rude.

After losing his brother and parents, Steele did not allow himself to get close to anyone so when Maren is kidnapped he scours the four corners of the earth to find her.

Maya Banks has become a favorite author in the romance genre. She gives readers smart, sassy heroines and tough as nails heroes. Forged in Steele contains moments that will melt your heart and others that are riddled with nail biting anxiety.
