What they're saying about this series:
"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!"--Amazon Reviewer
"I have always loved books where female leads are thrust into, what is stereotypically, a man's position, and this little ditty is no exception. J.C. Phelps did a wonderful job of weaving suspense, intrigue, and lust, resulting in what was a very pleasurable, and solid read. Each character had their own unique qualities and the use of "code names" while developing each was an engaging way to keep the reader guessing as to who they "really" were. The plot, however, is where Phelps' writing really shined. As a reader the push and pull of a story is what keeps you reading. "Where is this going?" "I know something big is about to happen... but what is it?" This more than anything is what made "Color Me Grey" so exciting, you could always feels something bubbling just under the surface... even in the most sedated moments of monologue."--Missy Baker of KindleObsessed
