About Book Softly at Sunrise Pdf Free Download
Rachel Kelly has traveled a long, hard road in her journey back to her husband, Ethan, and the Kelly family. Now, as she and Ethan are poised to move into their new home, safe behind the walls of the Kelly compound, Rachel wonders if she’ll finally be free of the ghosts that have haunted her for so long and if she’ll step into the sun after a past steeped in darkness.
This is a novella from the KGI Series, #5.5 just before the release of #6, Shades of Gray in December.
I want to thank Stephanie with Blue Fountain Media and Maya Banks for allowing me to read this novella!
The purpose of a novella is to give you a ‘taste’ of the series, of the writer, and especially, to wet your appetite for more of their books. Softly at Sunrise meets and exceeds these expectations, leaving me salivating for more of her books.
I went into this read entirely cold, having not read any Maya Banks book previously. She had been on my To Be Read list for ages, but it just hadn’t happened yet. I was a little worried, being unfamiliar with the series and jumping right into #5.5. There was absolutely NO problem whatsoever following along without the previous books. However, I would highly recommend to any reader interested in the series, but in the same position I was in to start with book #1. While following the plot and characters is easy, there is much of the back story touched upon that I wish I could have read first. It may not be as emotionally charged for me knowing what happens further in the story.
There was romance a-plenty, despite the hints of their tortured past. The Kelly Family is a tight knit group of hot special ops trained men (primarily.) That lends itself nicely to alpha male eye candy promises for the entire series. Rachel and Ethan’s story is not your usual fairy tale… the antithesis, in fact. Divorce, and even death itself all was just the tip of the iceberg of hurtles for this couple to overcome.
I am also always fearful with a novella, that it will have next to no plot, or have a huge cliffhanger… you never really know what to expect. Rest easy and fear not, there is action, romance, plot, an entire story that leaves you wanting more and no cliffhanger ending. Just the lingering yearning to check out what all those Kelly boys are all about in the KGI Series. I will most definitely be reading more by Maya Banks.
This novella is a heartwarming look at Ethan and Rachel’s life after the trauma of her abduction, torture and rescue. Ethan is treating every precious day with her as a gift. They have built a new home in the Compound for safety, and Rachel is so anxious to start their lives there. Their old home just holds painful memories . We reunite with the whole wonderful Kelly family, quiet and content…..for the moment. But wait…this is a KGI novel ; we have action!
I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, which just wets your appetite for the next KGI story. Ms. Banks weaves this story with old and new characters, bringing us up to date with the Kelly brothers, their extended family, and a wonderful surprise. I would highly recommend this story .
Well….a couple of things first. Even though this story is #5.5 in the series, this actually takes place in the middle of book six. However, there is only one minor reference to something that I guess happens in that book and everything else is independent.
Problem with automatically buying books by an author you like? You stop reading blurbs. At least I do. Anyway, I’m reading this series already so of course I bought this the day it came out. But here’s the problem. This story is mainly about Ethan and Rachel. My least favorite couple in the series.
Ethan and Rachel have had the worst time getting together and quite frankly I had some issues to start with in their book (#1) because their marriage was already in shambles when she got taken and tortured. How could their marriage be at that low point and then after she’s gone through so much we can expect a HEA? I do think this short story was needed because it gives an epilogue to their romance. If not an epilogue it opens up another chapter.
I wish I could’ve seen a little more of them connecting in this story, however they are the same distant people. Except now Rachel is pregnant…with twins. And she started working again.
At least I’m happy to see some of the Kelly family that I was missing in the last book!
I cannot tell you how excited I am to read PJ & Cole’s book though. They might take the top spot as my favorite couple (now occupied by Sam and Sophie).
Rachel Kelly has had a long and road back from the hell she experienced almost two years ago when she was kidnapped during a mission to South America. She was held for a year and given hallucinagens for most of that time, with her family believing that she had died in a plane crash. With the nightmare behind her, she’s slowly struggled to reclaim her life, including her husband, marriage, family and career.
The series began with Rachel’s terrible ordeal and since her return, she’s had to contend with memory loss, flashbacks and the climb back from an abyss. Her last memories were of a miscarriage, disentegrating marriage and Ethan asking for a divorce right before she left for South America. Even though they are united, it’s still been a challenge. The move to a new home signals a new start and the chance to replace those memories.
This story was a breath of fresh air. I always had faith in Rachel because her ordeal isn’t one most would have survived. I expected that we would see her emerge and begin a new chapter but I was pleasantly surprised to find an added element of suspense. It was riveting and Rachel rose to the challenge, giving her the opportunity to prove her mettle not only to herself but her family. It was a wonderful story of triumph and happiness and I read this in one sitting.
Though I’m not a big fan of novellas, this one was long overdue and it delivered. If you’ve been waiting for Rachel and Ethan to turn the page on an ugly chapter, you will not be disappointed. Oh, and you may need a few tissues.
This is the summary story for Rachel and Ethan from the KGI series.
We first met Ethan and Rachel in the first book of the series . After saving her from a year of captivity, Rachel had very spotty memory and was in physically poor shape.
This book touches back with the couple and we see a much improved Rachel and Ethan. She is just starting back in her teaching career and they are moving to a new home to leave the bad memories in the old home.
Although a novella a lot has been crammed into every page. Angst builds in the classroom with a gunman, in the doctor’s office with surprising news and in the bedroom with remorse being defeated.
A very hot page turner and worth the read
