Wow!

If you want romance with edge of your seat suspense this is definitely the book for you. Riley is a barista at a local coffee shop while Xander is a Navy seal on leave from a badly ended mission. The chemistry between them is instant. When danger hits too close to home Xander jumps in feet first to protect her. The outside characters are woven together so well. I still have questions. So i am I so excited to see what happens next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book had me flipping back in forth as to who was behind the terror haunting Riley. Amy McKinley kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Xander the Navy Seal and Riley the barista have sparks flying as they get to know one another. With trouble brewing in both of their lives, this was a tense book. I loved the strength Riley has when she finds out the truth of who is behind the break ins at her apartment. I await the continuation of the next book. Will all settle down or is this just the beginning for Xander and Riley?

Twisted Secrets (Deadly Isles Special Ops Series, book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Amy McKinley – Review by Bobbi Wagner

This is not my first audio by this author but it is one of my favorites by her.  I enjoyed the narrator’s tone of voice and what it brought to the story.  The narrator brought the characters to life using different tones.  This is a story that brings the romance and action into one well rounded story. The characters bring the story to life with each page.  This is a story about two people who have lives that are not going as well as they expected until a once chance meeting in a coffee shop.   As danger merges and the past comes to the present, the action really picks up.   I highly recommend this audio and this author.

Forged by Secrets (Deadly Isles Special Ops, book 3) by Amy McKinley – Review by Felicia Bates

Forged by Secrets is the third book in Amy McKinley’s Deadly Isles Special Ops series and much like the two books prior, it did not disappoint.
Forged by Secrets can be read by itself but as with most series I’ve read, I recommend starting from the very beginning. If you haven’t read Amy McKinley yet, just know that once you start, you won’t want to miss a thing.
This book has everything you could ask for. A great female lead character, relatable characters with great chemistry and a storyline that keeps you interested from the very first to last page. Another great read by the author, 4 stars.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just started this series this week and I already can tell I’m going to go right through it.

After this first book, I have fallen in love with Amy McKinley’s writing.

I normally don’t read military contemporary romances because we are a military family but this story keeps you guessing and I can’t wait to read the next 2.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OH MY GOODNESS!! This trilogy didn’t disappoint!! I love how they can be read as standalones but I highly recommend reading all three books, you won’t be able to put the book down!

Malina
Safeguarded from a past that haunts her but she can’t tell anyone about it. She suffers in silence. Working the SEALs was the greatest job she could have ever dreamed of, but working with Tyler Hale, her crush from high school was harder than she thought. Despite their constant banter she always tried to keep him at arms length she wasn’t willing to let anyone else in. But after a night a Vegas and finding out some very surprising news, only to Tyler to drop another bomb on her lap. She returned the favor by revealing her secret. To top it all off she was on the run because someone was trying to frame her something she didn’t do and the only person she thought of to help her was Tyler, so she escaped to his island. Now it was time to trust someone with all her truths, including her past that she never spoke of. But in the end can her and Tyler have a true relationship? Is he willing to believe her and help her? Is she willing to love for the first in a long time?

Tyler
Working along side Malina could sometimes be touture but he lived for getting under her skin, it was the only the way he knew how to interact with her. He knew she had a lot of sadness in her, that much he remembered from high school. Now was the chance to make her his. She was the one that got away, he wasn’t ready for a committed relationship, but now he more than ever. After Malina shows up on his island he’s surprised but happy. But finding out why she is there and how she is being framed. He is all in to save and protect the woman that he loves. But one night during a game of cards/truths, secrets are revealed. Now he will do anything to protect her more than ever. She finally opens up about her past he finally understands why she was so safeguarded, but no more running from their feelings. But first he has to prove her innocence. In the end will he be able to keep her? Can he save her?

This book was so amazing! I didn’t want the story to end. This is book has surprises around every corner. Tyler and Malina have always wanted each other but it time to make that dream a reality, after and when they conquer the threat on Malina’s life. He will do anything to ensure her safety.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was pulled in right from the beginning, the author does a great job with her writing.
This is Tyler and Malina’s story, I was excited to get another brother’s story.

Malina has had a crush on Tyler for years, when they end up working together all the memories come flooding back. She knows he isn’t the commitment type so she doesn’t get her hopes up. There is a twist after a drunken evening in Vegas. Things take an even bigger twist when she is accused of treason. She turns to Tyler for help, will he be able to help her? Can these two have a HEA?

Overall this was a thrilling read, we get steamy moments, violence, action and so much more. We also get several twists and turns that added a great element to the story. If you’re looking for a great military romance this is the one for you. I look forward to reading more from this author.
