My original notes were lost… Macho, SpOps still trying to reover from his capture and torture falls hard for model Eden, who's father was SpOps. They are thrown together after Eden is targeted by one of her father's enemies. These two as a couple were very charming, although I'd have liked Swanny to be a little less gunshy.

When Day Breaks by Maya Banks
#9 KGI (Kelly Group Int'l)

Daryl "Swanny" Swanson & Eden Sinclair

This is the first book I've read in this series, and although I can see the appeal, unfortunately, this particular book was a disappointment. I liked all the characters and the suspense part of the story just fine, but the gooeyness of the love story was awkward. That's saying something because I read a lot of romance and I have a high threshold for saccharine. It was entirely too sappy. I believed that the characters could eventually end up with each other and would be a good match, but this was insta-love, which sometimes can be cool, but I wasn't sold on it this time around. It happened way too fast with very little interaction between the two. In less than 24 hours they already knew they were falling in love with each other and that was after only sharing intense and broody stares.

The hero had some scarring on his face and body after being held captive and tortured when a previous mission had ended badly. A little bit of him being self-conscious and her reassuring him it didn't matter would be fine. Instead, throughout the entire book, that is all we hear about. Him either being stunned into silence that this supermodel would like him, or her making a point to touch his scars and telling him how beautiful he is. Stop reminding him about his scars, woman. Sheesh. This would happen at the worst moments. A wilting flower sound effect played in my head, but fortunately for Eden, Swanny was oblivious.

There was way too much internal dialogue going on, too much of the supposedly alphaman tough guy staring off into space thinking of how much he luuuuuvvvvvvs her and how unworthy he is to even have her lower herself to look upon his beastliness, when there is a bleeping psycho out there trying to kill her. I really like you a lot, Swanny, but get your head in the game, bozo.

I know this is a well-loved series and author, and I liked enough things about this to want to read about the other characters, but I definitely got the impression while reading this particular book that the author was in a rush and didn't spend enough time tweaking it to fix the problem areas which can be a distraction to the reader.

When Day Breaks by Maya Banks
Eden a model that has body guards due to her military father, knows when something is wrong.
A shooter tried to take her out. Her dad had summoned the brothers for a meeting and he tells them all he knows-starts with his wife who had been targeted and killed.
He fears they are after the daughter now...and Reed says he can get the KGI group to help take the murderers son out, once and for all. Swanny and others are on board and want to help.
She selects Swanny to personally guard her and all the others in the background. They are sexually chemically attracted to one another and slowly go to that goal.
Hot steamy sex scenes and I love the travel overseas. He doesn't want to show her the physiologic and physical scars he's acquired fighting in the war...he sees himself as a beast and her a beauty.
The criminal has been abducted but then why was she being kidnapped?
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

This romantic suspense was just so-so. I can understand the hero having insecurity about his face but not a whole book about it. I skimmed a lot. There was not much real action until the very end. Swanny and his KGI team are called in to protect beautiful model Eden and they have an instant attraction to each other.

*I gave this audiobook a C for the story and A- for the narration at AudioGals.*

Narrator: Adam Paul

Sometimes you go into a listen with certain expectations. In the case of When Day Breaks, I was expecting a hardcore, suspenseful listen with, given many of Maya Banks’ prior works, a racier edge to the passion side. Unfortunately, when I discovered that I actually had something completely different, I was just never able to really warm up to what turned out to be more of a sweet romance bearing a slight resemblance to Beauty and the Beast with some light action and suspenseful scenes tying it all together. The one aspect of this audiobook that did leave me greatly impressed was the narration. This was my first experience with Adam Paul, and I will surely be looking for more of his works in the future.
