Ty and Milene have always had sort of a push and pull relationship in large part due to the secrets from Milene this past.

Forged by Secrets is the third installment to Amy McKinleys Deadly Isles Special Ops series and all this reader can say is that it’s just as amazing as the first two. Having read the first books in this series I was thrilled when book three came out and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Once again Ms. McKinley provides us with great characters, a gripping plot, and overall a story that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Personally I love second chance love stories and that’s exactly what Ms. McKinley gives her readers here a second chance love story filled with drama, suspense, and so much more that this reader can’t wait to see what happens next.

I have read books 1 and 2 in this series as well, but this one was my favorite. I am a big fan of Ty. I knew I would be when I read first two books. His intuition – loved that characteristic. I also didn’t see a few things coming. I really liked Malina’s backstory which felt fresh and different from any book I’ve ever read- just a different take on civil unrest. I also liked that the conflict she experienced in her country influenced decisions even years later – felt like a realistic reaction. I was into the plotline that began in book one and continued in this book. I was definitely invested in the outcome. The takeaway from this story for me was how grief is different for everyone. Grief can be messy. Grief can be silent. It depends on the individual. I think the author does a great job of portraying that emotion in this story.

Can I just say I LOVE Author Amy McKinley’s Deadly Isles series!!! I am just so invested. This is book 3 of this series and does not disappoint. This is the story of Malina and Ty. Malina was sent to the States by her parents to live and be safe with her aunt and uncle, and just in the nick of time… Ty and Malina hook up in Vegas for some fun, but deep down Ty knew Malina was this one for him. Years later Malina is being accused of treason….and she flees to Ty’s house to be safe and to find out whom is framing her for treason. Ty is there to help find out whom framed Malina. I just love this whole story, Ty and Malina’s love for each other and did not want this book to end. There were a few twists I did not see coming! I highly recommend reading this series from the beginning as you also get to know Ty’s brothers, Jaxon and Xander as well. This is truly a fantastic series!!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tyler a hot, sexy Navy SEAL, has always wanted Malina. Malina, analyst for the SEALS, is struggling to overcome a past that haunts her every day. Knowing that Tyler is nothing but temptation, Malina avoids him like the plague. Until the day she is accused of treason and has nowhere else to turn–except to Tyler. When Tyler returns from his latest mission and learns Malina is not only in trouble but is missing, he will stop at nothing to save the woman he loves.

The third book in the Deadly Isles Special Ops series, Forged by Secrets is just as exciting and fun as the first two. Malina and Tyler are great characters, right in line with Tyler’s brothers from the earlier novels. Amy McKinley knows how to write a heart pounding(in more ways than one!) novel. This series has been one of my favorites I have read in a while, and I look forward to reading more of Amy’s books in the future!

Wow! Melina and Tyler has to be my favorite story of the trilogy. Sad story as it is, Melina gets sent to the US from Venezuela by her parents because her friends were caught speaking out trying to help others (very realistic). Tragedy follows Melina which makes it hard for her to trust. Tyler, class clown, has been attracted to her since high school but they have often fought. Tyler is a SEAL dealing with his own issues. What happens in Vegas comes home from Vegas, even if you don’t remember it. Tyler and Melina have lots to work out. Just like the rest of us, they deal with their issues the best they can. I find myself telling the characters what do like I’m right there with them. These characters feel like friends. The plot feels ripped from current headlines. I love the location descriptions of headlines. I want to visit the islands.

I’ve picked up this book and realized it was the third in this series. That was ok though because reading so many of this author’s books I knew I didn’t have to worry. She made this really easy for me to jump into and also made it impossible for me to not read the first two.

In normal Amy McKinley fashion I could not put this book down. I literally read it in two sittings with only about an hour break between the two. The suspense and edge of your seat reading made it impossible to put down. I loved these characters and can’t wait to get the other characters’ stories. There was just enough of everything, Romance, danger, suspense, mystery, and even a touch of humor which I loved!

I will read anything this author comes out with. She has the ability to grab me at word one and I feel like I always must finish once I start.

I hope there is more to come for this series, and if so I’ll be ready after hopefully reading the first two by then.

Love It!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Riley is a barista who has gone through a rough life. She is being stalked by a mystery person who is making people think she is crazy. Enter Xander, a hot SEAL, dealing with his own troubles. The chemistry abounds with these two. They form a friendship. Will the sparks flow as they work through the issues at hand? A copycat killer from a thriller? A romance gone crazy? This book was fabulous. I had to remind myself to breathe. The author again scores a home run with characters that feel so real. Their personalities remind me of some of the “friends” in my life. I felt every emotion Riley went through. Her rough life felt a little close to home which is why I think I felt it so hard. If you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for? Do it!

This was a great ending to this trilogy! It was an edge-of-the-seat read to try and figure out the conclusion to who leaked important information for the Navy SEALS and to find out Tyler’s story in all of this!
Malina Johansson is an analyst for the Navy Seals and just so happens to work on the team of her high school crush, Tyler.
When a night in Vegas changes their relationship Malina must open herself up to the opportunity of a relationship with Tyler and put her past behind her, that is until it becomes part of her present. When Malina is accused of treason and flees, she runs to the only man who can keep her safe, Tyler and his family’s island.
Together, along with Tyler’s brothers, they figure out who caused the trouble with the Navy SEALs missions and figure out how they can have a lasting relationship together.
I really enjoyed the series and how each book was about one of the brothers and included information not only about their relationship with the woman of their dreams but also about secrets from the past and intertwined the Navy missions as well! I had a difficult time putting these books down and I highly recommend them to anyone who loves suspense novels with a mix of romance! You won’t be disappointed in this series!
Amy McKinley is a new author to me, and I can’t wait to read her next series and get lost once again in her characters and storylines!

I just can’t get enough of this author!! In Forged by Secrets, Melina tries extremely hard to avoid and keep her walls up when encountering a Navy SEALs “frenemy”, Ty. However, she knows she is so drawn to him, so when she is accused of treason the first person she thinks she could trust to help her is Ty. This is a pretty quick read and from the start has action. Once again, Amy McKinley does an amazing job of blending romance and action together to create this great read. Make sure this makes your list if you love falling for characters in a book!
