Move over James Bond, there's a new secret agent hitting the scene. Petite and polished Alexis Stanton hardly seems the type, but raised in a family that gave etiquette equal time with special ops training, she proves she's not one to be underestimated.

After quitting her dullsville job doing data entry, Alex responds to a mysterious newspaper job advertisement and realizes right away that her special training is exactly what White and Associates are looking for. Employed by the mysterious and attractive Mr. White, Alex is given the new moniker Ms. Grey and instantly thrust into secret missions with her life on the line. She may be in over her head, but she's not about to show it because she's also having the time of her life.

Color Me Grey was a fun and exciting book. J.C. Phelps keeps the action and suspense high and manages to hint at romance just enough to make the characters exceptionally intriguing. I loved Alexis Stanton as the heroine - she's tough but also smart and sensitive; larger than life but still easy to relate to. The book was well written with a perfect pace, and as all my favorite series entries do, it tells a succinct story while still keeping readers eager for its sequels. There's nothing Grey about whether or not Phelps knows how to write - clear as black and white, she is a wonderful storyteller and an awesome author to check out!

An adult woman lives rent free in her parents' guest house AND they pay her an allowance; Really? She leaves a mainstream job and applies for a "mystery" position. Although she is never told that she has the position, she finds herself embroiled in a myriad of surreptitious activities that even includes killing. She out performs every male on the team; Really? This is a far-fetched tale that I finished only because I wanted to see if we would discover that it had all been a dream.

    Color Me Grey

    This book was mainly good, but I was distracted by all of the grammatical mistakes and choppy sentence structure. I liked the book, and will most likely get the sequel, but this book was riddled with errors

    Okay :/

    The nook had a pretty good story line, but it wasn't writen all that well. Sometimes I'd look at a paragraph and see that 4 out of the 5 sentences would start with the same word. Also, at times I was just bored with it. I'd give it 2.5 stars out of 5.

    Very recommended

    This is a very well written and enjoyable book. I liked it very much. After reading I used the lending feature on the Nook and let my wife borrow the book and she enjoyed it as much as I did.

    Fun

    This is a fun book to read. It's unrealistic, but if that doesn't bother you, then it's pretty good. It is pretty clean and has a decent plot.

    Good

    This book was a fast read. Good storyline, action packed, and full of interesting characters. I'd like to read the rest of this series.

    Mrs. Grey too perfect to be real

    Some of the chapters too farfetched to believe. The snake segment and the deer segment

    The book is good but, the excitement factor is not what I expected.

    The book has a good story to it and is kind of funny at times. But most girls or women do not have the strength that she has, so it is sometimes also unbelievable at times. I have read the series and it gets pretty predictable.

    Good

    The story lines were a little predictable however intriguing. I was waiting for more drama to come but it didn't bring the action that it conveyed. I was thinking to order the other 2 books but probably not. I like mystery and a twist at the end. The author was too kind. J.C. Phelps need more mystery in writing.

    Eh!

    I found this story to be fast paced and it held my interest but its definitely not memorable. If youre just looking for a quick read to pass some time, this might be the book for you but if you want a quality story thats leaves a lasting impression, i wouldnt recommend it.
