I love this suspenseful Series!

This is the second novel in the Gray Ghost Series, a Romantic Suspense. Mari and Chris’s story is entertaining, fast-paced, and captivating, filled with secrets, suspense, and action. Mari is such a great, smart, and strong character. Chris is handsome, and caring. Their story is entertaining! The scenery is amazing. Impossible to put it down. I like this series! Regan Brown did a great job with the narration. I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Loved it

Eye of the Storm: A Gray Ghost Novel, Book 2 AUDIO by Amy McKinley was a story of romance. There is suspense in the story as well which makes it ten times better.

A soldier awakens deep in the untamed woods of the infamous Darien Gap. He has no recollection of who he is or why he is thereafter being injured until a gorgeous woman tells him his name. But can he put his faith in her? Mari Dias enlists Chris Shaw's aid to flee a country dominated by the same family that pursues her in the jungle, where many sacrifice their lives but few survive. As Chris and Mari look for a way out of the forest, filters from his past begin to resurface in little doses. As they get closer, their adversaries become closer as well. Is he up to the task of battling the storm that threatens them all?

I loved every page of it. Each chapter was better than the next. I can’t wait to read the rest of the other books in this series.

Fantastic Read

Eye of the Storm by Amy McKinley is the second book in the Gray Ghost Series, but it can be read as a stand alone story. (Though you'll want to read it because Amy McKinley writes amazing stories.)

I was excited to find the same narrator performed both stories, as she really helped bring the story to life.

Chris has found himself in a terrible situation. He is alone, injured, and unable to remember anything about his life previously. The lady supposed to be his wife, is by his side and helping, but in trouble herself. Can he save them both and bring back his memory?

Action packed romance!

Eye of the Storm (Gray Ghost Series Book 2) by Amy McKinley is fast paced and action packed from the first chapter where we meet Chris and Mari in the jungles of Columbia. Mari helped save Chris’ life and she believes he will save her in return. Before that can happen, Mari must help Chris recover from his injuries so he can find a way out of the jungle.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Regan Brown does a wonderful job adding to the story with her narration.

Eye of the Storm (A Gray Ghost Novel, book 2) AUDIO BOOK by Amy McKinley

Eye of the Storm is the second book in the A Gray Ghost Series by Amy McKinley. I absolutely loved reading this book and truly enjoyed listening to it more. The narrator did an amazing job bringing the story to life. I never thought I would be such a huge fan of Audibles. I’ve quickly become a huge fan of them.
This can be read/listened to as a standalone but I recommend reading/listening to them in order. This is Chris and Mari's story. He finds himself waking up in the jungle stating into the eyes of a beautiful woman but no idea who she is or how he got there. She may be his only hope of surviving although she has secrets of her own. There on a mission to get to the sanctuary but what happens when revenge may be more important? Find out what happens next in this must read/listen. I listened to this in one sitting only because I had to know what was going to happen next. I can’t wait to listen to more books from this Author.

Heart stopping

I loved reading this book and the audio took it to another beautiful level. I love the way McKinley writes and thoroughly appreciated the way the narrator brought the words to life. I felt like I was right in the middle of the story. Just a riveting, emotional, suspenseful story. Can’t wait to go back and listen again.

Eye of the Storm by Amy McKinley

Eye of the storm A Gray Ghost novel book 2 by Amy Mckinley is a wonderful read. You could read this book as a stand alone if you wanted but Broken Circle was a amazing read and recommend you read it. Eye if the storm will captivate you right from the beginning. Amy Mckinley has a amazing way of writing and keeping you invested and wanting more. I really enjoyed reading about all the characters Mari Dias and Chris. I look forward to read more books written by Amy Mckinley and thank you for another wonderful read,

Action Packed

When Chris wakes up in the jungle he has no recollection of anything. All he knows is that there is a beautiful woman taking care of him named Mari. She is fleeing from Colombia to get away from a man who is obsessed with making her his wife. Mari knows that this man and his family are no good and she must get away if she wants to live a free, normal life. Mari lies to Chris in order to gain his trust and get his help to flee the jungle, but what will happen once his memory comes back? Their days and weeks spent together in the jungle bring them closer and feelings begin to develop between the two. Soon Chris' memory comes back and even though he knows Mari has lied, he still wants to make sure she is safe. He has been lied to before and burned by a woman he thought he loved so he isn't going to get caught up so easily. How can he be sure that Mari is being truthful when she expresses her feelings for him? Will they be able to have a relationship that will be lasting and strong?

Even though this is a continuation of sorts from Broken Circle, it can be listened to as a standalone.

Love finds is in the most unexpected places

Love has this way of finding us in the most unexpected places and in the strangest times.
Eye of the Storm is an excellent example of this.
Amy McKinley blew me away yet again with her amazing talent at world building and storytelling. Who would have thought that a soldier with amnesia and a woman on the run could have so much chemistry.
Some of the parts in the book were a bit out of the realm of possibility BUT that's why it's fiction, and it doesn't take away from the story. It works
This is the second book of the series but can be read completely as a standalone.
Regan Brown is an excellent narrator and this book proves it yet again.
Excellent, action packed listen.

An exciting & thrilling story!

Eye of the Storm is a fast-paced action-pack, romantic suspense, set in the jungle surrounded by peril. The storyline is gripping, packed with mystery and unexpected twists and turns; it literally had me on the edge of my seat. Our hero, Chris, while on a dangerous assignment, is airdropped in the dense Colombian jungle. Unfortunately, he sustains an injury causing him to lose his memories and is unable to remember anything, his whereabouts, the mission, nor anything that could help him. Fortunately for Chris, he meets Mari, a feisty woman with secrets; she supports him and helps him with his amnesia. The romance takes more of a back seat to all the danger and excitement, which I didn't mind. I prefer stories to be more character and plot-focused. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book, Beneath the Surface. Excellent narration by Regan Brown. She captured the characters personalities, emotions, and intensity found in the pages. Overall, Eye of the Storm was a fantastic listen, one I'll highly recommend.

That’s one way to get a man

Eye of the storm sees Chris waking up in the jungle unsure of who, what and where he is. But there is hope for him yet when a lovely lady is forced to help. And from he we get a story that has mis truths, action, adventure and an ending that at least a few of the characters are going to be truly happy about. It was another enjoyable story in this series. You could listen to this book as a stand-alone but I recommend that you listen to the first book.
Regan does amazing work on the narration of these books.

Kept me hooked

This was fast paced, adventure story packed with action and twists. Mari was amazing as the lead female protagonist, strong and competent and so brave. Completely kick arse and I love that she was the one doing the rescuing. Set in the Columbian jungle, Mari is tasked with rescuing Chris in exchange for her freedom to live in the US and leave her old life behind. I didn't realise that this was the second book in the series and so I am intrigued to read the first and any follow ups. I really enjoy McKinley as a writer and I felt that Regan Brown did a fantastic job of bringing her novel to life.

Exciting and fast paced

Eye of the Storm Audio Book by Amy McKinley is the second book in the Gray Ghost series. After listening to book one I could not wait to jump straight into this audio book. I was so pleased to hear that it was the same narrator as book one and I found myself drawn straight back into her easy story telling. Again I loved how distinct each of the characters were and how easy it was to visualise everything - even easier than it was when I was reading the series. It is such and exciting book. I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed Chris and Mark’s story. For me they were a couple that worked right from the start and I was behind them all the way. This is a fantastic book and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.

Great story, kept me hooked from the start

I really enjoyed this story. It was action packed from beginning to end and really kept me hooked.
Mari has escaped her old life and is trying to get to the US. She has been betrayed and ends up near guerrilla territory, but is then helped escape again on the understanding that she looks after Chris, who has amnesia. So she looks after him to help ensure her safety, hoping that they can escape before his memory returns.
I liked Mari as a character, she was brave and competent in looking after herself, certainly not someone who would normally need rescuing. Chris has to rely on Mari but desperately wants his memory back.
The slow build to their relationship happens with a drip feed of Mari's past and Chris's memory returning, I certainly added to the suspense.
I enjoyed the tie-in to the previous book, although this one can certainly be read as a standalone.
The narrator, Regan Brown, does an excellent job and I loved Mari's accent, it definitely helped with defining the characters. I would absolutely listen to more of her narration.

Brilliant Story

Eye of the Storm is an action packed story from start to finish, the story is set within the deepest of the jungle but will he be able to trust her or will she turn on him in the end.

This story is full of twists and turns, it will have you chasing the story with each turn of the page to be part of the story as you go. The book is set in the jungle and follows the story of Chris and Mari, as Chris is airdropped into this dense jungle he does not quite reach his destination and becomes stuck and unable to remember who he is and how he has got there, until he meets Mari who helps him try to understand who he is but Chris is no sure he can trust her.

Mari is on a mission of her own, this feisty, strong character who does not take any nonsense, she has grown up in the most dangerous environment but she is on her own mission which she will not defer from.

I loved this story with the twists and turns and the action had me gripped and wanting to keep listening even in the wee hours of the morning to finish this wonderful story. I loved the character of Mari, she was a kick ass women who knew what she wanted and went for it. The relationship between Mari and Chris was dynastic and interesting within the story.

Action-packed from the beginning!

My goodness! This audiobook really draws the audience in right from the start. It is "Go, Go, GO!!!" for Mari and Chris from even before they meet. But between the lies, gun-fire, reptiles, head injuries and more, an enduring romance blossomed.

What I really liked was that Amy McKinley gave both characters complex backstories that she wove into the short lulls between the moments of stress and action. It worked well with the story without disrupting the momentum of the plot.

I also appreciated that the characters did not go from these high stress situations into a perfect HEA. Don't get me wrong, they have their HEA but they also take the time to grow their relationship outside of all the drama.

Overall, this was a fun Romantic Suspense book that I really enjoyed. I am definitely going to listen to the rest of the series because I am sure Amy McKinely will deliver more high-octane romance! Regan Brown did a great job narrating this book too.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
