Review : Brighter Than The Sun by Maya Banks 

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.

Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.

Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering.

Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t…

As the last unattached member of the Kelly clan, Joe is more than ready to risk life and limb on any mission he’s assigned to, but when it comes to love, he’ll keep his distance. He’s content to watch his brothers become thoroughly domesticated. 

Zoe’s had nothing but heartbreak in her life, and she’s determined to start over with a completely new identity, thanks to her college friend, Rusty Kelly. But it’s the gorgeous smile and tender words of Joe Kelly that begin to weaken her resolve to never risk her heart again. And Joe will have to put everything on the line to save Zoe, when secrets of her past resurface—and threaten to tear them apart…(From: Goodreads)

⭐ disappointed star.

“Tell me something, Zoe,” he said quietly.  “If you could have anything you wanted in the world, have any wish granted, what would you wish for?”

I’d say money.

But clearly she is more stupid than I thought.

I really don’t like this book.  I don’t like this kind of romance story.  I thought I would.  But I don’t.

I got WTF when I read till chapter 3.  (I had no idea that it’s a book series.) The author threw 23 names at me all at one.  I had no fucking idea who was who.  It was a bloody mess inside my head.

What I Don’t Like About This Book 

– KGI 

Yeah, yeah, yeah, take out criminal empires, eliminate terrorists, drug dealers, arms dealers, kidnappers, mobsters, human and child trafficking… But killing is wrong!  You can’t just kill people.   Don’t think yourselves are so noble.  Superheroes don’t kill, not even bad guys.

– what is going on 

We’re not in Supernatural.  I thought this was supposed to be a contemporary novel.  Why can someone do telepathy?  Family killing business?  

– Joe 

He is definitely a very creepy dude.  I think he’s a sexual-minded sicko.  

– the instalove between Zoe and Joe 

I don’t get the instalove.  Joe obviously just wants Zoe’s body.  There’s no romance.  I don’t see LOVE here.


As you all know, I don’t recommend this book.  If you’re a KGI fan, you’ll probably love it.  But I’m not and I don’t.

That’s all for my review of Brighter Than The Sun by Maya Banks.  Let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading.  I’ll see you next time.  Adios 👋
