Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley – Review by Naomi McDonald

Covert Threat (Gray Ghost #5)Covert Threat by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 without giving away the mystery. But, this book made a great rainy day read!

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 as there was no way I was putting this book down.
In Covert Threat Trev Shaw is hired to shadow biochemist, infectious disease specialist Dr Jules Moretti when she comes under threat whilst working on a top-secret project. The pair met previously and Jules was convinced he was a player so wasn’t interested in him. However, as her life becomes more at risk and more strange things happen to her, she spends more time with him and becomes to know the real Trev she then realises that she misjudged him.
I really loved this book. The romance is hot and steamy and the suspense and tension built up by the author is fantastic. Just when you think you might have an idea of what’s going on, then BAM, McKinley throws you a massive curveball.
I would 100% recommend this book to anyone who likes a romantic thriller. In fact, I would recommend this whole series. The Gray Ghost guys are an amazing bunch and I loved getting to see them again in this book. I hope that Amy McKinley will continue with this series and give the rest of the guys a HEA too.

Covert Threat is the fifth book in Amy McKinley’s Gray Ghost series. It is filled with action, romance and is so fast paced that you will not even notice when you have finished it! You will be pulled in from the first chapter and you will keep thinking who why when how …
Our couple of the Covert Threat are Jules Moretti, an infectious-disease specialist, and Trev Shaw, a former SEAL and the man trying to keep Jules safe … There is an unknown threat out there and Jules is in danger so Trev is brought in to protect her. There are so many little details that build a big picture that blows you away and all along you will be keeping your fingers crossed that Jules will have the happy ending she so deserves and that the secrets that have been buried deep will see the light of day and not destroy everything and everyone on their way.
Even if you pick Cover Threat up as a standalone, you will find out pretty fast that you want to read the whole series! Welcome and enjoy yourself!

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 real, I am sure there are many people like her, but Jules just had a little extra something. This was a great compliment for the series and number six can’t come soon enough.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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 going on and it kept me reading to the very end. I already know with this series there will be some sort of happy ending but I enjoy the thrill and action portion which brings the characters closer together.

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 how their relationship developed slowly and you could feel their connection. It was a perfect mix of action, romance and mystery, with the full picture only being revealed at the end. The pieces gradually fell into place. This story follows Trev and Jules, as they work together to solve a mystery. Jules is being threatened by an unknown, and Trev is hired by her boss to find out who is the threat and to keep Jules safe. She is a genius scientist and her research and developments are vital to her organization. While Trev is being paid to protect her, soon they develop feelings for each other and he wants to keep her safe, even without the money. I don’t want to spoil any surprises, so just read the book!

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 Moretti and Trev Shaw. These two have an undeniable chemistry and Trev knows it. He also is tasked with keeping her safe from a dangerous threat. Will he be able to keep her from harm and win her heart all at once? These two will have you reading well past your bedtime to find out. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book whenever that is!

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 in the series. And that can be attributed to Ms. McKinley’s keen imagination and writing skills.
While this could be read as a standalone, I really recommend reading the rest of the series too- in order to get all the backstories for the recurring characters, background information, and other important details- which will really enhance your reading experience of this book. Not to mention the other books are superb stories in their own rights! You really can’t go wrong with Ms. McKinley!
This story has so much going on in it- right from the beginning I was drawn into the action, completely under Ms. McKinley’s spell. Jules and Trev had me following along right beside them as everything unfolded, captivated by this romantic suspense. As expected the story has plenty of action, drama, violence, suspense, mystery, twists, intrigue, danger, gripping details, and emotion. As with the rest of the series, I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through, devouring the pages to discover what was happening, and loving every minute.
Bring on Book Six!!!!

Thank you, Ms. McKinley!

5-Stars

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. The climax was amazing and I love how the author wrapped it up. Jules and Trev are the main characters of this novel. Jules story was shocking and tragic when it was revealed later in the book. I was in tears after finding out how and why she lost her memory following a boating accident at a young age. Jules was amazing and I loved how smart she was. The things she had accomplished with her career were inspiring. Trev was also an inspirational character as well. I love that he taught self-defense classes for women in honor of his mother. Despite his tragic and painful youth, he grew into a strong, educated, and fun protector. I loved this book and I highly recommend it.
