The Book Family I Want to Join

There have been plenty of cities from books that I wanted to visit, places to see, and people to meet. However the best part of all of those books are the various families. I want to meet so many of them but there is one family I would love to be adopted into. It’s the Kelly family from Maya Banks.

If you have any of her KGI books then you know that they are a family of brothers who do contract work for the government and other private citizens. They do all sorts of secret ops missions. Each book is so well written that you will find yourself devouring them. The Kelly’s live in a compound for lack of better word. They don’t start out living in one but after some things happen they end up living in one.

It takes some work to get their parents to agree to build a house and move into the compound. One of my favorite things about the Kellys is Ma Kelly’s need to adopt all sorts of people. She will take in almost any wayward person. The other members of the various teams employed by KGI are always counted as part of the family.

Then there is Sean, a deputy in town who is an honorary Kelly from the the very first book. We don’t know his back story yet but he is a huge part of the family and the series. The other member is Rusty who breaks into the elder Kelly’s home one night. She’s hungry and well that is all it takes. She not only gets taken in and taken care of, she is eventually adopted and becomes an official Kelly. She is the only girl in a family of boys.

This family loud and always has each other’s backs no matter what. Family always comes first and even when they are being jerks they still do there best by one another. You can read more about my favorite Kelly book in August’s Author Spotlight Giveaway.
