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.

Five Stars
Gabriela/Malina is beautiful, hardworking, loyal and now on the run for her life.

Malina runs to Tyler’s private island in her most desperate attempt at hiding and staying alive. Will it be enough to keep her safe? What will Tyler do when he returns home from his current deployment and finds her?
A wonderful book of mystery, intrigue, love and loyalty. The Deadly Isles series has been one of my favorite reads recently. Ms. McKinley is a great author and will definately keep you engaged in her stories.

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.

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.

Forged by Secrets (Deadly Isles Special Ops #3) by Amy McKinley

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by McKinley. The Deadly Isles Special Ops Series is amazing. This can be read as a standalone.

Melina has come from Venezuela to the States only to have her life flipped around. Her parents are dead, her boyfriend is dead. It’s all her fault. The quote I chose for Melina is: “Okay, then tell me what the reason is behind you giving me one of the movies you did. Or was it strictly because you thought I’d like watching them?”

Tyler is the youngest of the Hale brothers and he’s married. Not only does his wife not know, but she is keeping her walls up. The quote I chose for Tyler is: “Case in point, you’ve got that unexpected viper tongue, and if you unleash it on one of these unsuspecting idiots who think they might have a chance with you, I’d have to get into a fight.”

Highly recommended for Romantic Suspense lovers.

Forged By Secrets by Amy McKinley is the third book in the Deadly Isles Special Ops book series. This can be read as a standalone and enjoyed but there are recurring characters from earlier books in the series. Malina has secrets and now she has been accused of treason. Who can she trust and will everything from her past come to light? Tyler wants to help Malina but will he put it all on the line for her?
This is full of action, romance, intrigue, and more. I really have enjoyed Amy McKinley’s books in the past and this did not let me down. I really look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Malina Johansson is an ordinary woman working as an analyst for a team of Navy SEALs, but she has secrets in her past which nobody can know about and Tyler Hale is one of three brothers and is on the Navy SEAL team which Malina is the analyst for, they have known each other since high school, but Malina has walls around her heart because of her past and Tyler wants to know the woman behind them because they have an attraction which is off the charts. That all changes when they go to Las Vegas for the birthday of a mutual friend and everyone knows that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so the alcohol flows and inhibitions lower and Malina and Tyler end up in bed together for the second time, but when she wakes up, Malina slams her walls back up and flees the room with no memories of the night before, but she thinks no more about it and goes back to ignoring Tyler as best she can while Tyler is determined to get under her skin, again as usual.

Five weeks later and Tyler is still pushing her buttons while she tries to ignore it, but she knows he is about to go on a mission which means she’ll have some breathing room while he is away, but things don’t go as planned and Tyler ends up being detained overseas longer than planned when his mission goes awry and this makes him realise that he can’t keep playing games with Malina any longer and is determined to win her over as soon as he returns to Pearl Harbour and debriefed. A few days into Tyler’s mission, Malina heads to the office after a disturbed night and an early morning dealing with the aftermath of it, all the while, she is reminiscing about a time in her life she would rather forget and sees an old friend at the harbour and stops for a quick chat which helps. It is hot, humid and she isn’t feeling her best when she approaches the front door, but she is shocked when she is waylaid by a coworker before she even gets through and what she is told shakes her to the core, she is suspected of treason and if she is seen, she will be arrested. Malina knows what she has to do and returns home to pack a few things, followed by a bus ride to the harbour via a corner shop and ATM for supplies, she stays as hidden as possible and asks her friend for their help to get to her destination. As she is about to leave, she sees a familiar face in the crowd and hopes that they are not there for her, so although she has only been there once, she heads to Tyler’s place, it is the only place she can think of to hide and hope that he will help her when he returns.

Over the next couple of days, Malina settles in and waits for Tyler while hoping that the conversation they will have will not deter him from helping her, even though it will mean danger for him, but when they do have that conversation, it is sober and over cards, this leads to truths being laid out on the table as they each reveal something which will affect the rest of their lives. Will Malina and Tyler be able to find out who has framed her for treason and the reason why, or will all the secrets of their past destroy them before they can? This is a thrilling ride as revelations occur and danger lies around every corner, it hooks you in and pulls you along as you follow the path and untangle the web of intrigue which surrounds the main characters.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the 3rd book in the Deadly Isles Special Ops series and I loved it just as much as the first two. The author does an amazing job of making her characters so interesting and gripping that you are hooked right from the start.

In the book we follow the story of the 3rd Hale brother Tyler and Malina.

Malina and Tyler have a love hate relationship or so it would appear. However all the fighting and bickering is just to hide their true feelings for each other not that either will admit it.

When Malina runs into trouble at work by being accused of being a mole and a traitor she runs to the only person she knows and kinda trusts Tyler.

With secrets from her past coming back to haunt her, and trying to find out who is trying to set her up Tyler and his brothers have a big mission on their hands. Especially when Malina is kidnapped.

Can Tyler and the Hale brothers solve this and save Malina? What secrets does Tyler hold? And can Malina finally let her walls down and let Tyler and love in?

5 out of 5 stars

This is a great story/series and I just started reading this authors books and I am hooked. The characters are well written and amazing. The story line was awesome and could have come off the headlines in the news. The detail description was like I was in Honolulu and on there private island.
Malina Johansson is an analyst for the Navy SEALs and has some serious drama is her childhood. Tyler Hale is a Navy SEAL who has always had a thing for Malina but she has always kept her walls up.
One night of drinking in Vegas is all it takes for her guard to drop, and to fall into his arms. Back home she keeps her distance but Tyler has a secret But Malina has one too.
I wonder what the secrets are. Will Tyler break Malina’s walls down? Will they have a happily ever-after? You will have to read this story/series to find out what happens…..
