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, because had a feeling the sexy-as-sin woman was guilty as hell.
But will he find the money before the mob finds Mickie? Or will she distract him with her Nonna's Magic Massage Oil and fritattas at the beach house where they're hiding out and get them both killed?

Oh, those Deep Six Security guys, you just have to love them. These are some bad*ss guys, and they get into more hot water than they can handle sometimes. Take Grayson Jennings, for example. He's just trying to do his job, setting up the next office for the Deep Six folks, when he is blindsided by a very small, very feisty, very Italian whirlwind with plenty to hide. Michaela 'Mickie' Girabaldi has definitely found herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. On the run from some very bad men, Mickie's just looking for a way to stay alive. When her search brings her to the offices of Deep Six Security, and a second meeting with Gray Jennings, she's less than thrilled. I love this series, and Becky McGraw might have just written my favorite of them yet with GRAY MATTER. While there is plenty of the usual suspense, I found myself laughing out loud at the banter between Gray and Mickie. Clearly, neither one was ready for what they'd gotten themselves into, and there is plenty of humor, as well as scenes so steamy that a fan and a cool drink are nice to have on hand. Having all of the usual suspects on hand to keep things jumping was a pleasure, and meeting Mickie's brother, Dante, seems like a great lead-in for another book that Becky needs to give us. All in all, GRAY MATTER is 4 action-packed, sexy, laugh until you cry stars, and a definite must-read for fans of the Deep Six books.
They say opposites attract, in this book they sure due make sparks fly. The action and suspense added to the sexual chemistry between Gray and Mickie keeps you turning pages. This book has it all mystery, danger, intrigue, humor, drama, sexy hero, passion, twist and turns. This is a very enjoyable and unexpected story.
Gray Matter is the fifth book in the Deep Six Security series and it will leave you laughing, crying, and swooning, yes swooning! Grayson Jennings is an accountant, a bean counter, but he is a sexy hunk who knows how to handle himself in just about any situation, that is until he meets Michaela Girabaldi and she turns his OCD life upside down. Mickie is a hot, sassy, sexy Italian, who knows how to use a purse to her advantage, and she uses it quite often on Gray. Mickie finds herself in a lot of trouble at her old job, and Gray becomes someone she thinks she can trust, not knowing that because of things in his past, he has big time trust issues. Gray decides to try and help her anyway, but since these two are like oil and vinegar, that is when the fun begins. I absolutely loved the first meeting between Gray and Mickie, it had me laughing out loud. Also loved the way Gray got the nickname Mr. Big Dill. I loved the other characters in this book, Hawkins, Lou Ellen, and especially Dante. Her little dog Tito, will steal your heart too. I give this one five swooning stars and highly recommend it.
This is book 5 in the Deep Six Security series and it features Grayson Jennings and Michaela "Mickey" Girabaldi. The story was exhausting in a very good way. The action was constant and the story line involved a lot of variables but was easy to follow. Michaela was the typical New Jersey Italian woman. Funny as hell! I was a little irritated with Grayson for his constant fickleness towards Michaela. I realize he'd been burned before but he was brutal and she deserved better. The characters in this story were unbelievably amazing! Even though this is book 5 in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I'm excited to see who gets the next adventure.
Gray Matter by Becky McGraw is absolutely spell-binding. Ms McGraw has delivered a well-written book and loaded it with amazing characters. Kudos to Ms McGraw for weaving a story with enough suspense, action, humor and sizzle to keep readers tied to Gray and Mickie's story. Their tale left me satisfied with the HEA and sad to reach the end of the book. I totally enjoyed Gray Matter and look forward to reading more from the talented Becky McGraw in the future. Gray Matter is book 5 of the Deep Six Security Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
WOW!! I love, love, LOVED this story! Grayson and Michaela are HOT!! This story has a lot going on but it flows naturally! It is exciting, steamy and laugh out loud funny at times! A definite book hangover story!!
