Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel Book 5) by Amy McKinley is a wicked tale of cat and mouse, life and death and twisty. Amy has done an excellent job of keeping us on the edge of the seat trying to work out what is happening and what is supposed to be an easy job turns into something much more deadly. Is she going insane or is there something much more sinister going on? I love the Gray Ghosts, I mean who doesn’t love a SEAL? And Amy writes a SEAL so, so well.

Jules isn’t sure if she is going

Covert Threat by Amy McKinley a thrilling five-star read. This is number five in the Grey Ghost series and it could be read as stand-alone but honestly, I have read it as a series and loved it as such. This series has just ramped the drama and action up notch by notch. I love that Jules Moretti is such a good character, she is more than just the female lead, she is brains beyond belief and I was reading this one with all the news about an outbreak of a new flu and I was wishing that Jules was ...more

Covert Threat by Amy McKinley is the fifth book in the Gray Ghost Novel series. As usual this book is absolutely brilliant and is such an easy book to read.
The characters had the chemistry that I have come to expect from this series. They were engaging and interesting from the moment we are introduced to them.
The story line is fantastic. It is exciting and fast paced - I flew through the book so quickly because I could not put it down.

Covert Threat is the fifth book in the series Gray Ghost Novels by Amy McKinley. Ms. McKinley is an amazing author who brings her story to life. Her characters in her story are amazing and keep you engaged throughout the entire story. This story has some romance in with the action/mystery all rolled into one book. One reason I enjoy McKinley, as a reader I want to be apart of the story and not on the side lines. This story is about Trev, a former Navy Seal, and Jules a workaholic who needs some ...more

By Amy McKinley. Once again the author pulled me right in. I’ll be completely honest I think this one may have been my favorite of the series but hey don’t tell the others. Once again the characters had me sinking right into their story and I didn’t want to leave.

Find out what happens when someone threatens Jules and Trev is sent to protect her. Will he be able to figure it out before its to late? I highly recommend this ...more

I knew as soon as I received this novel I wouldn't be disappointed and boy was I right! It's all to do with how amazing Amy writes she has such a way with words that it isn't just engrossing but it is also full of emotion you cant help but feel yourself right there along side them in the novel. I have a weakness for a romance with suspense it just add an extra punch to the storyline having all that mystery such a hook filled story! I honestly cant wait to read more from her I loved every second!

McKinley continues to enthrall her readers with the latest in the series. This may have been my favorite to date! Romance and suspense in a fantastic combination. I love McKinley’s writing style and the attention given to all of her characters. The main characters are relatable and very thorough. They get like people I truly knew when I walked away from the book. I was kept guessing and literally found myself holding my breath a few times in anticipation of what might unfold next. Excellent read ...more

Covert Threat is book 5 In The series. I have not read all the books in the series but, I believe you do not have to in order to know what is going on.
This book was great. I found myself staying awake later at night because I didn’t want to put the book down.
Covert Threat was filled with action, suspense and confusion. As a reader I can honestly say the author had me hooked from the very beginning. Who doesn’t love a good book with a hot former navy seal?
Jules is one of the top scientist

Covert Threat is the fifth book in the Gray Ghosts series by Amy McKinley- and what a gripping instalment this has been. Sometimes in a series, by the fifth book things are getting a bit stale and starting to peter out as the momentum is slowing down, and the story is much the same as the previous book- BUT this is definitely NOT the case here. This series just seems to get better and better the further into it we get. This book is just as gripping, if not more than the other four books

Covert Threat is the 5th book in the Gray Ghost series by Amy McKinley. It can be read as a stand alone, but I recommend reading the whole series, as all have been wonderful. The characters only slightly overlapped, and enough details were given that you wouldn't feel like you were missing half the story. I have loved them all so far, and this book did not disappoint. The characters are great, and I loved that the female lead wasn't a total push over, but was a strong, brilliant woman. I liked ...more

Covert Threat is book 5 in the Gray Ghost Series by Amy McKinley. I have read books 1-4 and the prequel and have absolutely loved this series so far and couldn’t wait for Trev to get his own book. I was so looking forward to reading his story and seeing him succumb to a woman’s charms.
Amy McKinley sure knows how to write a suspenseful, romantic thriller. As with all books in this series I was gripped by this story and did not want to put it down. In fact I stayed up until about 4am to finish it

Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley is an excellent, fast paced, action filled, romance. It has an excellent storyline and plot.

This is a story that is filled with action, suspense and thrills. I just loved it. It’s one of those books that is hard to put down. It grabbed me from the beginning and next think I knew it was two AM. This really just got better the further along it went. Trev is a hottie with a great attitude. He is sure to bring in all the girls. Jules is a nerd who works as a scientist of the highest order. Crazy and I mean crazy things start happening to Jules and Trev gets hired as her babysitter....well ...more

I have really been enjoying the Gray Ghost novels from Amy McKinley, and this book number five, did not fall short one bit. I really enjoyed these two main characters and quickly fell in love with them, finding myself cheering them on until the very end of the novel. I have had the privilege of reading the books from the beginning and in order but I don’t think it is absolutely necessary to enjoy this book to do so yourself. Just an added bonus.

In Covert Threat we are brought the story of Jules

Covert Threat by Amy McKinley is the fifth book in the Gray Ghosts series. This can be read as a standalone book but I believe best enjoyed if read after the books before it in the series. Each book focuses on certain characters but the others are still part of the story. The other books give some background to make this book that much more enjoyable. I enjoy books in this series because there is action, romance, and thrills all in one book. Covert Threat does not disappoint. There is a lot ...more

Memorable Excerpt
===
Back in his arms, our heartbeats slowed, and I lay beside him in contentment, feeling satisfied and full for the first time in a very long time. I drifted in and out of sleep, waking when he ran his fingers along my arm. The fan turned in a lazy circle overhead as thunder rumbled outside. I cuddled closer to Trev, my head resting on his chest and our legs tangled together. His hand traced absent circles on my shoulder, and I sighed. If only life could be so uncomplicated and

Covert Threat is the fifth book in the Gray Ghost series. It mentions characters from previous books, but you can follow the story line without having to read them.

I think this is probably one of my favorites in this series. I loved the suspense build up. I enjoyed the equality of the mystery and romance. The romance part didn’t overtake the main story like in so many novels. Jules’ character was well written and I enjoyed following her story throughout the book.

I can’t write too much more

Sitting here after finishing one of the Gray Ghost books by Amy McKinley
I find myself wondering should I write about each book separately or as a whole.
Wow.. Fantastic words that describe everything about the Gray Ghost Books.
If your a fan of drama fast pass action and over the top adventure mixed with
hot sexy times with alpha males then theses books are absolutely for you.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
