Does your boyfriend or girlfriend smile, crack jokes , and laugh one minute and then rip your head off the next?

2. They are fearful of being with you

Does your boyfriend or girlfriend run from you, push you away constantly, and do they

****Thoughts on Reread from May 10-May 13, 2012

I was very intrigued with Nico from Shadow Game, for his dark, lethally dangerous, very controlled aura, and how he seemed to fade into the shadows. I thought he'd make for a very good hero in his own book. His story lived up to his potential, both the first and second times.


I like his controlled, ice cool persona, but also how Dahlia penetrates through his icy facade when no one else does. I also liked how he was very smitten with her early o
Finally! A book I can unreservedly give a 5 star review for --- NO rounding up!!

This book was so much better than the first in the series. I really loved Nicolas and Dahlia. I know some reviewers had various complaints about them, but honestly, I couldn't see it. Some reviewers didn't like that Nicolas wasn't completely cold and taciturn like he was in book 1. But that was the point!!! Dahlia was total fire to his ice. She was chaos to his control. They brought each other to somewhere in the mid
The PNR aspect in this book was stronger than in the 1st book in the series, and it was better explained. Geek that I am, I just love the scientific "mumbo jumbo"! The romance aspect wasnt too shabby either: Nicolas and Dahlia could really burn down the house - sorry, I couldnt help the "bad" joke... ;)

Im definitely hooked to this series and cant wait to see all the remaining GhostWalkers finding their matches!

3.5 stars.
After finishing this book I feel...elated. Why? Because it took me almost 3 days and, for me, that is a lifetime! Books rarely take me longer than a day to finish. The problem is there was no specific reason for this book to take so long. I do believe it was drawn out longer than it needed to be. The scenes in between the action were kind of unproductive and boring. But not so bad that it kept me reading for so long. U

Unfortunately, neither the couple nor the story could hold my atten
4 stars – Paranormal Romance/Romantic Suspense

I enjoyed this second installment in the GhostWalkers series, and I especially love the dynamic combination of paranormal elements, military romantic suspense, and steamy romance. There’s just something about Feehan’s excessively wordy writing style that bogs down the flow and pace of the story a bit for me, which is why I rated it 4 stars instead of 5. But just like with Shadow Game, the intriguing, strong characters and hot love scenes are the best
This was another great read by Feehan. It has all the ingredients for a romance to thrive in its glory! The action, the emotional depth, the characters development, the passion and sexual tension! I particularly like the Hero...very selfless and devoted man who worshiped the heroine and "most importantly, he was not a manwhore" I really appreciate the fact he was paired with the inexperienced heroine, that made them equal on that level! I did not had to read any of his sexual past and I sensed h ...more

I really enjoy the Game series by Christine Feehan. But for whatever reason, I wasn’t in the mood to get into this book this time around. Regardless, this review will be a double thumbs up.

My second book by this author and the second installment in the GW Series and all I can say is if I’m ever in need of rescue, would you please send in Nicolas! Wow – He is just amazing! And I agree with Dahlia... ”he wasn’t just any man. He was extraordinary”..a walking lethal weapon!

3.75 stars. I enjoyed Mind Game for many of the same reasons I enjoyed the first book in the series. Loved the evolving plot, the suspense kept me guessing, and I enjoyed the camaraderie among the ghost walkers. Of course, I loved seeing Dahlia begin to trust in Nico's love for her. Feehan did a nice job portraying their developing relationship.

My heart went out to Dahlia -- I was happy to see her find peac

I must be the only one who gives such low ratings to the books in this series, but so far book 1 and 2 were not of my taste at all, I mean they are not bad, just not as interesting as I would want them to be.

Some parts I loved but others were a bit boring. It's just that I don't find the topic that appealing.

But the romance was pretty good. Sometimes I even got excited about the two of them together, because they actually did have some good moments together but that's about it. There are many t

Nicolas Trevaine y Dahlia LeBlanc han sido ratas de laboratorios en distintas etapas de sus vidas y por distintas razones. Lily se ha propuesto encontrar a todas las niñas que compartieron con ella el experimento de su padre y la primera en encontrar fue Dahlia, el encargado de buscarla y protegerla es Nico, el más frío, taciturno, leal, silencioso, oscuro caminante fantasma.

¿Qué me gusta de libro? The insta-lust. Ese te-miro-y-quiero-arrancarte-la-ropa. Con-los-dientes. En-medio-de-un-pantano.

This is the second instalment in the GhostWalker series, and Lily Whitney has located Dahlia Le Blanc, one of the children that Dr Peter Whitney, her father, experimented on. Nicolas Trevane is sent in to track Dahlia and finds that she has become a target of assassins and it is his job to protect her and bring her to safety. But passion and emotions that neither person is used to unexpectedly flares between them drawing them closer together.

Moved just a little too slow for me. On the plus side, I liked how Dahlia and Nicholas were able to communicate with each other through their telepathic abilities. It's hard to hide your feelings from your lover when they can read your mind! I also liked how Nicholas was completed unashamed in his feelings for and pursuit of Dahlia. Kind of refreshing :)

So this is the second installment in the Ghostwalkers series and I enjoyed it maybe even more than the first as it was less confusing. I've become better acquainted with the world CF had built and also because the hero and heroine didn't use quite as many scientific terminology that Lily did in the first book. There were some parts that were still a bit hard to follow and I found myself confused at times but it was still enjoyable and didn't put me off.

I really loved Nico. He's portrayed as sile
Jewels ♥ My Devastating Reads
Great read! Nico intrigued me in the first book of the series, and I'm glad Feehan didn't make us wait too long for his story. I totally loved that she balanced his stoic, warrior persona with warmth and tenderness. I know some readers said they didn't buy it, but I think his background of being raised by healers who held to ancient and wise teachings made these two sides of his personality believable. You can be quiet, methodical and even dangerous, as Nico is and still have a great deal of pas ...more

Ah very good book, very emotional right from the beginning. Its so sad to see how the girls were being mistreated by Dr.Whitney during the experimenting. How they manage to grow up dealing with their powers with no real help. Dahlia has managed to become a very strong person who is used to taking care of herself. She has such a dangerous power and is afraid when she feels too much emotion she sets things on fire, so she is not used to being around people, but her and Nicolas were fit for eachoth ...more

I'm uncomfortable saying I really liked the book when so many things bothered me but I really liked the idea behind the book.

I did figure out what was bothering me with Ms. Feehan's writing. She sets up a wonderful portrait of a character then as the book progresses, has that character go completely against his/her nature with their actions. It totally confuses and annoys me! Take Nicholas (the hero), for example, Throughout book #1 and beginning in this book, he is portrayed as a native Americ

Definitely liked this one better than the 1st book. Not sure why, maybe the hero didn't come on so strong in the 'love at first sight' department?

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I can't believe I've found a writer that writes just the way I love it. Great heros, great heroines and such interesting worlds. Love her. I can't wait to go on and read the rest of this series.

... and we have lift off!!! Looks like things are starting to heat up with the Ghost Walkers now.... will they each match up with a corresponding flower? Hum that would be interesting wouldn't it? Sicko Dr. Whitney might have been just that interested in genes to do something like that too.

Speaking of Audiobooks Listening Challenge 2011- While not directly fulfilling a SOA Challenge category, Mind Game is the second in the Ghostwalker series by Christine Feehan which I used to fulfill the "Listen to a series that grabs you" category.

In a word (or two or three): Mind Games is full of intensely intense intensity. ;-) Self-conscious and over-written, the book is full of dramatic adjective, verbs and adverbs. Dahlia is specially enhanced, but is in almost constant pain, feeling nause

Its always such a pleasure to read from Christine Feehan, of course this is my second time reading this series. I read the first in the series "Shadow Game" and now I have just finished reading "Mind Game" and what a wild crazy ride that turned out to be. Nicolas Trevane has volunteered to go and find Dahlia Le Blanc, who Lily has found. Lily has been searching for all the young girls that her father changed and tormented and then sent out into the world alone. She thinks she has finally found D ...more
Like Shadow Game, Mind Game is about 50-100 pages too long. Christine Feehan isn't a bad author, but she has a tendency to repeat certain phrases, snatches of exposition, and bits of dialog over and over again in her books. She obviously doesn't trust her readers to understand anything the first time she explains it. When I wasn't cursing Feehan for this frustrating idiosyncrasy in her writing style, I managed to enjoy this book. The characters were interesting, the plot was compelling, and I pa ...more

This is not the first Feehan paranormal series that I have read, however I enjoy the depth of plotline found within. I almost did not finish the first book, Shadow Game and almost gave up on the series. I had a problem getting behind the female lead of Lily Whitney, not really liking her and had no buy-in her happiness. However, when I read the back cover of Mind Game, I found the plotline interesting and Nicolas had always been my favorite in book 1.

I enjoyed this book very much. This is the second one I've read by this author, and I liked her to begin with but this book is even better. I loved the heroine, Dahlia. I picture her as looking like Maggie Q from Nikita. Dahlia had an interesting backstory and a unique power that I've never come across before. She was sympathetic and lonely but strong and independent. I loved that her power merged with Nicholas' to make each of them better, and that he could tap into his healing power when he me ...more

Not really much plot to speak of, more a series of incidents designed to get the two main characters all hot and bothered about each other, meaning that it seems to move at a snail's pace. Described as a 'supernatural romance', there wasn't a huge amount of either (noticing someone's erection isn't quite in the realm of romance as I think of it). Filled with images of aching swollen breasts and 'hot and wet feminine channels' (channel?? Hmm, sexy), and feeding off one another's 'sexual energy', ...more

“You aren't worried are you?"
"Why should I be worried? It's just another day in the neighborhood. You know - bombs, fires, people shooting at you. Why should I be worried? Especially since we could be clothes shopping or boarding a plane. I'm not in the least worried."
"Hmmm," he mused allowed. "I read about this in the relationship manual. It's called womanly sarcasm and usually means a man is in deep trouble.”
“Cute? You think he's cute? What's cute about him?
Well, yes. He's got that smile, that really bad boy smile, and a great backside.

On page eighty of the relationship manual, it clearly states, you cannot look at another man's backside, especially if you think it's great.”
