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!

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.
