Gray Matter: Deep Six Security, Book 5 by Becky McGraw
Date of Publication: August 28, 2022
Can Gray help his new office manager clean her dirty laundry? Or will the mafia princess hang him out to dry?
Since leaving the FBI Grayson Jennings has found peace in his life with his job as a forensic accountant with Deep Six Security and he treasures it. It remains that way until Michaela Girabaldi is hired as the new office manager for their east coast office.
The smart-mouthed Jersey girl strolls into the office in red high heels with her bags packed with enough dirty laundry to last them both a lifetime. In Prison. Her dirtiest laundry is the 1.2 million dollars she insists she didn't steal from the mob and Gray is wrangled into helping her find it.
Well, this was not Gray's first rodeo with a beautiful criminal and he had the bruises to prove it. He was not going to blindly trust a woman ever again, especially one suspected of murder and many other nasty crimes. He would help her, but he wouldn't be getting into bed with the mafia princess or falling for her or her games.
Mickie says only her cousin knows where the loot is located, so Gray sets out to find her. To do that, he'll have to follow the money, but he is afraid at the end of that trail he'll find a lot more than he bargained for.
But will he find the money before the mob finds Mickie? Or will she distract him with her Nonna's Magic Massage Oil and cannolis at the beach house where they're hiding out and get them both killed?
What a crazy, exciting, action-packed adventure with surprising humor, witty banter, compelling characters, and a sizzling HOOOOOT romance! This is my first Becky McGraw read and I have to say, I am STUNNED with it. I wasn't expecting my first read from her to be so freaking AMAZING! I LOOOOVED Michaela! Her attitude, spunk, smarts just made me want to be BFFs with her! And Gray, he is gorgeous, and broody, and when he and Michaela get together, all sorts of sparks fly. The heat is INTENSE between them and the constant push and pull just had me eagerly turning the pages.
Now the action and danger was ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT GOOD! Between that and the constant heat and romance, it made for one heck of a incredible read! Once I dug into Gray Matter I did not want to leave until I was finished and then I just wanted another taste. Now I am determined to go back to previous books in this series to read what I have missed because Becky McGraw won me over.
Gray Matter is just a TON OF FUN and one great adventure with great chemistry! I give this book an AMAZINGLY WRITTEN FIVE SHOOTING STARS!
