I enjoyed this book immensely. The main characters had a chemistry that was palpable and I liked that the POV switched between them. The plot was easy to follow and had interesting twists! I never saw the ending coming. I read cover to cover because I couldn’t put it down. Great job. 5 stars.
Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel Book 5) by Amy McKinley, 5 stars.
I’m no novice when it comes to reading Amy’s book they are outstanding.
From page one until your last your be sucked in, especially with the suspense, strong independent characters Amy loves to write, and Covert Threat is no different. Jules loves her work at the research facility but strangeness starts to happen to her and when the bodyguard Trev makes an appearance and things start to heat up. But can it really be that simple? Read this to find out those details, it will have you on the edge of your seat for sure.
I have read a few books from this author and I absolutely love her. My favorite genre is military romance and she always exceeds all my expectations. This is the fifth book in the Gray Ghost series. You can read this as a stand-alone but there are previous characters in this story as well. I was so excited when I got this book. I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. I could not put this book down. It only took me a few hours to devour this amazing story.

She knows what she is doing but something happens to her that makes her need a bodyguard. Jules thinks she knows all about the type of man that Trevor is but she quickly finds out she is dead wrong. She feels an amazing chemistry between her and the hunky bodyguard. Jules doesn’t know but she is getting herself into danger that she can’t even see. Will Trevor be able to save her in time or will the danger take over?
Review by @heatherbass
Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5) by Amy McKinley was an entertaining read. I felt invested in the suspense and romance. This is my first read in the series and I felt like I could easily follow what was going on. It was very well written and I loved the pace. I felt like the story was developing well and moving along quick enough for me to stay engaged.
Covert Threat by Amy McKinley is the fifth book in the Gray Ghost series.
This was the perfect book for me. It kept me guessing and revising what I thought was going to happen next and who was responsible for all of the weird stuff happening to Jules. I had a partially correct guess about a third of the way through but I whiffed on a few important details and I was totally okay with that.
I wish I could find someone like Trev to save me the way he saves Jules. Holy cow! But seriously, he is hot, a good guy and willing to anything to protect Jules.
If your looking for a book that will keep you guessing during the twists then I highly recommend this book.
Covert Threat is an intriguing, action packed, romantic suspense story that hooked me from the very first page! Amy McKinley never disappoints! If I see this author’s name, I know I’m going to love the book!
Jules is a scientist who is dedicated to her job. A serious workaholic. Her life consists of work, sleep, repeat, with an occasional outing for a drink with her friend Fran. One day she gets a strange message on her computer along with all sorts of other strange things happening around her.
Trev is a former Navy Seal who is hired to be Jules’ bodyguard. He’s gorgeous, built, smart, funny, and knows how he affects the opposite sex. Which is why he’s shocked that Jules seems to be able to resist his charms! Soon, they find out that Jules is in more trouble than first appeared. Can Trev figure out what’s going on and keep Jules safe all while trying to get her to see him as more than just a bodyguard?
This is book five in the Gray Ghost series but it can be read as a standalone. It contains a little bit of everything and will have your emotions all over the place! I highly recommend this story and all of Amy’s books! 5 stars!

Covert Threat ( Gray Ghost #5) By Amy McKinley
I was once again drawn into the adventurous world of Amy McKinley and I again was not disappointed. I liked the drama and intrigue that flows throughout the book. The characters just jump to life off of the pages and draw the reader in and keep you hooked till the last page. It was an exciting read that kept the flow of the series alive and me on the edge of my seat.
Trev and Jules are so explosive in their chemistry and the drama and intrigue that surrounds them. I was so impressed of the flow of this series. The characters enhance one another and the story line is invigorating and addictive. I felt as though I was in the midst of the action and was eager to see how things would turn out. This is a great read and I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future and hope for more of this series.
Covert Threat is the fifth book in Amy McKinley’s exciting Gray Ghost series. Like the others, it can be read as a standalone but features characters and references events from the previous books.
The Gray Ghost team specialise in difficult missions. They can keep people safe or get them out of tricky situations. The core of the team is former military, and they put their training to good use in dangerous situations. The books are packed with action and tension.
Jules, the protagonist of Covert Threat, realises that she is in trouble when she starts noticing small things out of place. A drawer she doesn’t remember opening. A change to the screensaver on her computer. As things build up, and Jules realises she’s not just imagining it, Trev steps in to protect her and help get to the bottom of things.
I particularly like Jules as a character. Her interest in food and cooking means that McKinley applied her generous attention to detail to descriptions of delicious, nostalgic food (I’m hungry just reading it!). Also, her work as an epidemiologist is really cool and I learnt a lot from reading about it.
For me, this is a five star book. I’d recommend the series to fans of action who like a book with a complex story and characters that you get to know over time. Although you can jump in here, reading the stories in order gives you a chance to meet the characters properly and see their stories unfold (and you’re going to want to read them all eventually!).
Covert Threat (A Gray Ghost Novel Book 5) by Amy McKinley
4 of 5 Stars
Covert Threat is book 5 in Amy McKinley’s ‘Gray Ghost’ novels featuring members of the Gray Ghost Team. Workaholic Infectious Disease specialist Jules Moretti works at an elite research facility and following a security breach which puts Jules at risk, former Navy SEAL Trev Shaw is assigned to keep her safe. As Jules continues to work on top secret research projects she starts to have strange ‘mishaps’ and as her safety is put more and more at risk Trev must keep her safe. After a boating incident the two discover that there is more to one another than they initially thought and sparks begin to fly. What began as a simple assignment for Trev turns more dangerous as he falls in love with Jules and wants to discover who the culprit is and whether the danger is personal, or merely a smokescreen for biowarfare.
This is an action packed thriller, mystery and romance. The storyline is fast paced which kept me hooked from page one. I loved the main characters and how Jules and Trev’s relationship developed. The novel can be read as a standalone book, however characters from the previous books are mentioned, and having read and enjoyed this book I am now keen to read the rest of the series.
Covert Threat: A Gray Ghost Novel, book 5 by Amy McKinley is a 5 star read.
