My Thoughts:

Looking back at this book, I can't believe how much I came to love Team 3. They are firmly entrenched in my heart. Initially I felt sort of thrown and betrayed that Ms. Feehan had left my beloved Teams 1 and 2 and went to a bunch of folks I didn't know. I am eating my words. These guys (and two girls) rock! A different feel and relationship with this group. All the teams are a family, but these folks grew up together, and that bond is many years in
I love the GhostWalkers series, so it was a given that I had to read Street Game even if I didn’t particularly love the previous book, Murder Game. When I heard this new book was going to be about a whole new team, I was a bit wary. Why introduce a bunch of new characters when there’s still a lot of characters from previous books whose stories haven’t been told yet? Well, there was nothing for me to do but go along with Ms. Feehan’s decision and enjoy the read…

Street Game by Christine Feehan

First let me say that this book broke me out of my recent reading funk. Although it was uneven in certain spots, overall this was a very enjoyable book. In fact, for the first time in a very long time, I became so absorbed in this story, that I forgot I was reading. It was only when my family started harassing me for dinner (for the love of God, couldn't they go to McDonald's or something??), that I was popped back into reality.

My Review:

I’m going to apologize right up front for this review because even though it’s taken me weeks to write, I’m still making a mess of it. There are so many things about this book that seemed different to me – unique from the others – and yet, I can’t put my finger on it. It is more a feeling than anything I can point to and say, “This is what makes this one different…”

In Street Game, we’re being introduced to a new GhostWalker team, this one headed by Mack McKinley whose specialty is urba...more
For the most part, I enjoyed three-fourths of Street Game and it was well on it's way to a 5 star read, but the last quarter of the book didn't do it for me. This book took a whole new spin on romance, in that it was more of an obsession that the hero resented and didn't treat the heroine all that well. Something we see via flashbacks only. Thankfully. Two years later, when the main H/h reunite, he tries to play a different tune, but it's a struggle for his SEVERE alpha personality.

Initially, I...more
Usually, when I finish a book, I immediately run over to write the review while the details are fresh. But, for Street Game, I stepped back for a few hours before sitting down to type. I wanted to make sure that I didn't get carried away by reading one of my favorite series, so I took my time.

I love the GhostWalkers...and I anxiously await each new story. When I discovered that Street Game was not going to be about one of the men we already knew about, but instead about a whole new team, I was...more
The GhostWalkers move out of the swamp and jungle and into the territory of urban warfare with a completely new team of enhanced soldiers, together since childhood, that stumble upon "the one that got away" two years ago, breaking all their hearts, one more than the rest.

Jaimie left the brutal world behind her, but it came knocking on her door yet again, with Mack McKinley bringing his team into "her" city on the heels of an arms-trafficking terrorist group. Jaimie and Mack were close once, but...more

I like this series; it has action and intrigue as well as the interaction between the alpha male and the alpha female. Still even with that, this one got a little tedious with the angst back and forth and back and forth between them. It seems to me that also, that at some point, people with the "powers" that the Ghostwalkers have would not have so hard a time finding the dastardly Whitney. This book dragged on just a bit too long to keep the attention. If or rather since Mack had a plan why didn...more

My first book of 2010, and I couldn't have chosen a better one :)

A huge fan of the entire Ghostwalker Series, I was glad to see Christine Feehan pull away from the we-just-met-but-OMG-I-just-have-to-have-you motif that's present in so many of her other books.

In Street Game, our hero and heroine have known each other their whole lives, and were even involved romantically before any of the pheremonal whatnot occurred.

Never fear, the conspiracy is still alive and kicking, with sev...more
This is the 8th book in Feehan's Ghost Walker series and heads in a totally new direction with a new GW team and new characters. I think Ms Feehan could have given us a heads up in the last book as to what was coming, but nonetheless I was able to follow along very easily and actually enjoyed this new team quite a bit.

This is Mack and Jaimie's story. Mack is the "Top" or head of this team of GW's and Jaimie is the woman he loves; the woman he never stopped loving, even after she left him without...more
I'll admit I wasn't happy with the switch to a new Ghostwalker team but Feehan did a great job in catching my interest in this new team. The continuity to the other teams came when I recognized Kane from Deadly Game. Getting to know him here and knowing he'll get his story with Rose and their baby made me hope his book is next.

At first I was afraid Mack was going to be a bit too much of a jerk but Feehan makes you understand why Mack is Mack. Jaimie knew what she wanted and was strong enough to...more
The past can haunt you.

A GhostWalker team, headed by Mack McKinley, heads to San Francisco after receiving a tip that an arms dealer has a cache hidden and waiting to be shipped. But the address can’t be right: only one loan occupant on the top floor of a three-story warehouse in the building? Tight security, but bypassable. Something’s not right. There’s nothing on the first floor, the second is high-tech, state of the art computers. But, discovering Jaimie, the woman he once had and lost, on t...more
Quit at page 270. Needs heavy-duty editing to cut repetitive dialogue, some real-world commonsense applied (inappropriately timed & placed sex scenes anyone?), plotholes fixed, and annoying main characters with continuous repetitive pushme/pullyou dialogue and motivations/actions fixed. (These two need a marriage counselor.) Too bad, because it had an interesting sounding plot.

Christine Feehan is starting to be like Stephanie Laurens for me. There's a lot of gold down deep, but I don't have...more

I have loved the other Ghostwalker books, they are a great deviation from the normal Paranormal Romance. This one, I had a hard time wrapping my mind around. And the female character who started out strong, became more of a wimp and way too angsty. Maybe once I get this new team of urban warfare figured out, I will like this part of the series better. There were a few good action scenes and a few non-angsty relationship scenes, but if I had been Jamie, I would have knocked Mack down a step or tw...more
This book introduces a third Ghostwalker team and actually tells us that there are 4 official teams, one in each branch of the military. The team in this book is lead by Mack and also contains Kade who is briefly mentioned in Deadly Game as one of the men who help the imprisoned women from one of Whitney's bases. The one nice thing about this book is you kind of get an idea of how many Ghostwalker teams are out there and how they are related. I've been a big fan of this series but the latest boo...more

Street Game

By Christine Feehan

Reviewed by E.R.

The main characters,Mack McKinley and Jaimie Fielding, have a history together. After a mission gone wrong, Jaimie disappeared. Two years later, Mack and his team ended up finding Jaimie after being given a “wrong” address. The encounter between the two lovers is full of tension and misunderstanding. But the two must put the past on hold as they try to find the ones targeting them.

I liked Mack. I realized he is the alpha-male of the group, but Jaimie...more
The Ghostwalkers series is not my favorite of Christine Feehan's fictional worlds. I'm not much interested by the espionage and political wrong-doing behind the scenes in this series. That being said, Feehan certainly knows how to write a group of characters that are well-developed and interesting. Even though I don't enjoy the subject matter and the increasingly detailed web of deceit surrounding the Ghostwalkers, the characters themselves are truly wonderful and contain enough "juice" to keep...more
I was not really all that excited for this book to come out. I found within the last couple of books in this series I couldn't believe the couples stories and were mostly reading the books for more on the inner workings of Whitney and all his behind the scenes manipulations. So I started to read this one with great reservations, and then as I started ran into more. I mean where were the Ghostwalkers that I knew, who were these new guys and why couldn't I get a story about a previous one like Ian...more

For Mack McKinley and his team of GhostWalker killing machines, urban warfare is an art.
But despite a hard-won knowledge of the San Francisco streets,
Mack knows from experience that too many things can still go wrong.
Danger was just another part of the game—and now he’s come face-to-face with a woman who can play just as tough.

She’s Jaimie, a woman with a sapphire stare so potent it can destroy a man.
Years ago she and Mack had a history—volatile, erotic, and electric. Then she vanished.
Now she’s...more
I liked the overall story, but it felt slow at times. There was so much background story given throughout the book, but around page 200 or so, it sort of just felt like the story ground to a screeching halt so that the author could examine each characters feelings and past. I don't know, it felt like two books put together.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the book, I liked the characters but I think it would have been better with less background and more action.
I have the same problem with this series that I do with Christine Feehan's Carpathian series - the first few are okay, more or less entertaining, but after that they just get so unbelievably formulaic. Sure, we got new characters and a new team, but the underlying story progression is exactly the same from book to book. Switch it up a little and maybe the next one won't be so godawfully boring.

Good book! I really liked both Jaimie and Mack. I liked their interplay especially about them restarting their relationship. A little too many conspiracies happening - about 3 - but otherwise a really good book.
I have mixed feelings about this book. Street Game follows in the path of the previous seven GhostWalker books; its H/H are genetically paired and therefore have EXTREME feelings towards each other in their mating, the action is riviting, and the good guys are out to save the world using their genetically-manipulated physical and physic talents. Yada, yada, yada. But here's my problem, and it actually stems from Ms. Feehan's enormous talent.

I got bored. In an action book. I swear, the whole firs...more
I was a bit hesitant to read this one because I'd read reviews that didn't like this as much, mainly because of Mack, his controlling and dominant ways, and he inability to fully commit himself to Jaimie, so it took me a while to get into this one.

But as I read further, I realised I was actually enjoying this one and I shouldn't have been hesitant in the beginning. I liked Mack. He wasn't my favourite hero GW but I still liked him. He is controlling. He's an alpha male and he isn't all that gre...more

Review by: Tori

I have read this series from day one and have to say the direction they are taking is a little disappointing. It’s the same underlying theme each & every time. Ghostwalker meets love of life, they have sex, they fight, he dominates, they do a mission and all is well.

This particular books gives us insight into a different team that has nothing to do with the original team members we have been reading about. Which is interesting as it introduced us to some new characters and set...more

This is the latest Ghostwalker book by Christine Feehan. This is the first I have read in awhile and wondered how I would like it. This series has interested me, but she seems to be jumping around in the four groups of Ghostwalkers. The majority are about the first group with the rest about group 2. This one introduces another team that is headed by Mack. He seems to have held this group of misfits together since childhood, and his downfall and only weakness is Jaimie. She has special abilities...more
This is book 8 in the Ghostwalker series but it can be also considered book 1 because it focuses on a new GW team.

It was a very in grousing smooth read. The chemistry between the GW team members was awesome. Great characterization as usual. You definitely felt connected to the main characters and the GW team. I found the emotional explanations to be pretty in depth and very satisfactory. As you can tell I really enjoyed this book. Can't wait for the next novel in the series.

Street Game is the the 8th book in the Ghostwalkers series and the reason for the 3 stars instead of 4 like I gave the previous books is because the series takes a jump here and goes from the the characters in the first Ghostwalker Team to a new set of characters (Ghostwalker team 3) that haven't been in the series at all until now so it feels a bit disjointed from the rest and I had to become invested in them and their story much more than I had to in previous books. The plot is fine, but that...more
This is my least favorite of the Ghostwalkers series so far. There was really not much advancement in the overall plot of finding Whitney and who is involved. There was a lot of talk about it, but it all seemed to go nowhere in the end. We did see Violet briefly and learn a little more about what she is up to. It does seem to set up the next story, or what i would assume to be the next story.

This team is one we havent seen before. They reference other teams and it seems like the lead heroine Ja...more
