Have you heard of our Lord and Savior, Maya banks?
The lovely Maya banks was my first true romance series addiction. The book to my face. The peanut butter to my jelly. The dope to my shizz. If you haven’t heard of her, perhaps you might recognize a few of her covers…
Yes? No? Maybe? Somewhat familiar? Well, whether you’re familiar with her work or not isn’t really the point of this article. The point is that she’s fantastic and if you don’t recognize her now, you should fall in love with her so that you will recognize her in the future.
I’m just gonna start with the Banks’ KGI series so as not to overwhelm you too much. Depicted in the first image above, with 10 books all reflecting hot men or women with guns, is the KGI series. Not every book is provided since the series hasn’t yet been completed. But, there should be at least 15 books overall. So I’ve read/been told.
Like Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series, the KGI series is about-that’s right, you guessed it-hot guys with guns. KGI stands for Kelly Group International, which follows the Kelly family, primarily the brothers and the situations they get into as well…basically another mercenary group. What can I say? I love a shirtless man with a gun. It makes no sense, since if he has a gun, then I’m to assume he’s being shot at and being shirtless isn’t exactly the wisest of choices if you’re being shot at. I never said I was smart. But, incredibly attracted to book boyfriends with weapons, yup yup. That’s me.
Of course, some of these books have triggering situations. So, if you aren’t comfortable reading about abuse or rape (which is understandable), I might not suggest these for you. Some of their targets/clients/women need saving from more than just bad guys with guns. If that’s the case, I would suggest some of her sweeter series. *hint hint* *wink wink* Check out some of the titles in the featured image depicting her books Sweet Surrender, Sweet Persuasion, and Sweet Seduction. There’s still some running around and bad guys, but the darker themes are kept to a lesser extent.
These books can be picked up in hard copy at any bookstore or online via your Nook or Kindle. 😉 Let me know what you guys think of it.
