Broken Circle by Amy McKinley is the first book in her Gray Ghost series! It is also the first book I have read by this writer so I was very curious about her story telling ways when I picked it up! I have to say that I had nothing to be concerned about! I absolutely loved it! I loved it so much that I also picked up the ‘prelude’ to the series that I had somehow missed AND also the second book of the series! (Reviews to come!) I loved Amy’s writing style – it was flowing and smooth like molasses AND it kept me at the edge of my seat until I came to the last page! There are twists and turns in this story and I tell you, every single character has their purpose and you cannot take anyone away! It is a story of betrayal and ‘illusion’ – you think that something is going on but you do not actually see what truly is going on under the surface … I loved Olivia, I loved how she grew throughout the story and found her strength (and stubbornness)! And when her blinders come off … be prepared for fireworks!

Broken Circle by Amy McKinley a four-star read that will brake you. This is the first book in a Gray Ghost Novel series and if the rest of the series goes from strength to strength as this book did it will be a great series, Its filled with action and drama and characters like Olivia and as you follow her journey you will see the story and wonder if the life she is living is a lie, the husband she loves, is he the man she married? This story will have you on the edge of your seat, the twists and turns will astound you. Can’t wait to read book two.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Broken Circle: A Gray Ghost Novel, Book 1 is a suspense novel written by Amy McKinley. Liv’s life had been just about perfect, despite the tragic loss of her parents some months before. Her marriage to Alex, a police detective, who was on the verge of running for the Senate with the backing of the right people, was a fairytale affair; their romance still hot and heady, but lately she’d noticed some tension in him, things he seemed to be hiding from her. Liv was, herself, hiding something, something that engendered mixed feelings of excitement and dread. She was pregnant. She knew Alex was against their starting a family at least at this point in time, but it had happened, and she was determined to have this child. When she finally did tell him, Alex was furious, leaving her stunned by the ferocity of his reaction to her news. And while he did manage to get hold of his emotions and seemed willing to embrace their future as a family, Liv couldn’t help but wonder how she’d not seen this darker side of him before. His impromptu decision to take her on their long-postponed honeymoon so she could finally meet his mother was an exciting and unexpected development, but Liv was still cautious after his reaction to her news. Amy McKinley’s contemporary suspense novel, Broken Circle: A Gray Ghost Novel, Book 1, is a taut and well-written tale that takes the reader down to Barbados, Venezuela and Colombia as Liv and Alex finally go on their honeymoon. Liv is a fascinating character, whose love of art is a joy to read about. I enjoyed following as she went through the creative process when sculpting, and I particularly appreciated how she grows strong and self-reliant in response to the threats and perils that come her way. It’s a grand contrast from when we first meet her; a woman who seems sheltered, a product of her privileged background. Broken Circle is a steamy novel containing poignant and moving erotic scenes, which may be a bit too intense for readers who prefer sweet romance. That said, McKinley’s plot is suspenseful, and her story is fast-paced and exciting. Broken Circle: A Gray Ghost Novel, Book 1 is most highly recommended.

Broken Circle by Amy McKinley is the first book in her new series A Gray Ghost and what a great first book this one was. This is the first book I have read by McKinley, and I can say that if all of her books are like this than I am definitely going to be hooked for life. Broken Circle is about Olivia and Alex, who couldn’t be more different in the beginning. Olivia is an up and coming artist on the upper east side artist, while Alex is an upstanding police detective for the NYPD. While the reader can assume that Olivia will always be looking for something more, Alex is just the type of man that she wants in her life. He is safe, dependable and lights her fires in all the right ways. But there is a shift in their lives coming, when Alex is offered a prime political spot, will he be able to keep Olivia with him? Or will secrets from her past keep her away from the man that she wants and needs in her life? This book is full of steamy romance, suspense, drama, and keeps you guessing from the very beginning to the last page. The suspense will keep you in the edge of your seat and make you want to buy the entire series once you end chapter one. I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this book, and how fast I downloaded the rest of this authors library of books. If you are looking for a great read that will keep you jonesing for more than this is the author for you.

Broken Circle (A Grey Ghost Novel Book 1) by Amy McKinley is the first book in her A Grey Ghost Novel series. This is not my first book by this author but it has just become my favorite of her and I can't wait to see what she has next for us in this series. Her writing style is easy flowing and kept me engaged until the end of the book. I did have a hard time putting this book down and ended up reading it all in one night. The characters in this book are lovable and connectable. You will find that there is a couple that you won't like but they do make the story and I wouldn't change them. This story took me on some twists and turns that I didn't see coming and left me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what will happen next. This story is full of suspense, action and even some romance. This story is about betrayal, misconceptions and seeing things for what they are. This is the story of Liv. She seems to have the best marriage to those looking in from the outside. She even thought that until her husband, Alex, started acting weird. She over hears one of his phone conversations but what she doesn't realize is how it will change her life from that point forward. He suddenly decides that they are going to finally take that honeymoon they couldn't take when they got married. Will she get to see another side of Alex she didn't realize existed? He wants nothing more then to protect her but what will happen when he puts her in danger? Will this be a second chance for them or will they need to fear for their lives? I really enjoyed Liv's character. You would think that because she has a strong husband that she is a little weak but that is not the case here at all. Liv is really strong and the things that she goes through in this story just makes her stronger. I enjoyed seeing her grow throughout the story. I felt compassion for her when she starts realizing that life is not what it seems for her. I will say she does have a hard time listening to do what she is told so she is strong headed but I know you will enjoy her character. A few of the secondary characters are great too and I enjoyed them also. Alex is a character that I fell in love with at the beginning but by the end I think I wanted to kill him. All of the characters make this story flow into an action packed story. I highly recommend this story as I know you will want to see what happens with Liv. Will she get her happy ever after or does fate have something else in store for her.
