The Darkest Hour (KGI #1) 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 US government can’t…

It’s been one year since ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly last saw his wife Rachel alive. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt over his failures as a husband, Ethan shuts himself off from everything and everyone.

His brothers have tried to bring Ethan into the KGI fold, tried to break through the barriers he’s built around himself, but Ethan refuses to respond… until he receives anonymous information claiming Rachel is alive.

To save her, Ethan will have to dodge bullets, cross a jungle, and risk falling captive to a deadly drug cartel that threatens his own demise. And even if he succeeds, he’ll have to force Rachel to recover memories she can’t and doesn’t want to relive—the minute by minute terror of her darkest hour—for their love, and their lives, may depend on it.

 I can't say enough how much I LOVED this book !!!! I started reading this book when I should have been resting for work the next day. I only got three hours of sleep cause I couldn't put this book down. I love so much about this book from Ethan and his brothers to the sub plot with his parents and a teenage girl. Rachel is the kind of character I had wanted to read about in a book a woman that was broken and scared out of her mind but gets stronger as the book develops along. Rachel tugs at your heart strings and your cheering for her as she gets stronger. Ethan is a good man that's devastated when he finds out what his wife went through. Plus you have the mystery of why Rachel's death was faked and the new member of the family cause's some waves without meaning to. I liked at the end of the book Rachel wasn't good as new she was much better than she started but she still had a long way to go. It was a pleasure to read about Ethan and Rachel's journey and a great beginning to a series. If you like when a man and his family fight for one of there own then this is your book, promise you won't be sorry for giving it a chance.
