Signs you might be dating someone who acts like they are a crazy coward

1. They are like 2 different people

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 th

Reread during August and September:

I listened to this at night on Audible and I had to keep rewinding it because I would fall asleep. It's not an idea way to reread a book. It feels very disjointed. I did love experiencing the book again. Dahlia and Nico are two of my favorite couples, although I really love them all to varying degrees. Dahlia is really feisty and I love that about her. Nico is so controlled, but not with Dahlia, and it's kind of funny, especially when the team sees him being so

Prior comments:

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 t
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 wasn´t too shabby either: Nicolas and Dahlia could really burn down the house - sorry, I couldn´t help the "bad" joke... ;)

I´m definitely hooked to this series and can´t wait to see all the remaining GhostWalkers finding their matches!
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.

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.

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

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 :) ...more

At the end of Shadow Game Lily and the GhostWalkers were determined to find the other children that Lily's father Dr Whitney had experimented on to enhance their psychic abilities. Dahlia is the first of those children that she has managed to track down but after looking at recordings of her training it seems she has a dangerous ability. Nicolas is sent to find her and let her know that they can help her to live a normal life but when he gets to her he finds she has become the target of deadly a ...more

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
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 liking this series but this isn't my favorite couple. I actually liked them better apart than I did as a couple. Dahlia seemed stronger when she wasn't around Nico and he was a little too overbearing for my taste. Their relationship didn't seem balanced to me and I'm not really a fan of that dynamic in my romances. But I love the whole Ghostwalkers concept and I'll definitely keep reading the series. ...more

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. ...more
I'm really enjoying the reread of this series. I'm surprised at how little I remember. But I'm definitely having fun learning this world again.

I liked Dahlia a lot. She's been isolated her whole life and really doesn't think there's any other way she can live. Her talent makes it nearly impossible for her to be around any other person without going into overload over their emotions. She becomes a bomb of fire waiting to happen.

Nicholas is as cool and remote as they come. Even his own team has

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.

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

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.

Nicolas Trevane, Nico, is a big mystery from book 1. He's quiet, calm and deadly. He was raised by his Grandfathers in the old ways. His gifts came well before the experiment that released his physic barriers. He just knows when there is danger. And he won't let his emotions get in the way of what needs to done. Well, that is until he meets Dahlia Le Blanc.

Dahlia can manipulate energy to the extreme. Her telekinetic power is impressive but it comes at a high cost. She can't be around people for

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

I've only read Christine Freehan Carpathian series and I enjoyed them but I wasn't enamored with the way the female became weak and needed the 'protection' their beloved male characters could provide at all times. Of course, Dark Slayer, Ivory was at the the only female warrior got a little more wiggle room. Well glory be, Delilah was strong enough to stay on a more equal footing with the boys and boy did she kick ass!

Jan 11, 2009 rated it did not like it
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

... 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.

This couple is fantastic! I also enjoyed how more of the world where these experiments occur was built. I liked the pace and how both people had to learn how to work with another. The language was very descriptive and helped me visualize the events and locations. Can’t wait to see who the next couple is and what their powers are😎

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.”
