Therese Hopefully our detective will be a bit more good looking (no offense dude):-)

Ingie Wow, interesting photo. :)

On the bus on my way to work and I just sneak read the first page. This will be great. Sofia or Therese, you two always remember all those details and second characters from earlier books. Please remind me about these two.


Therese So, this being a week BR, I might be a bit slow, but startin out now!
At 5%,

we met Kennedy in Winter Kill - but that is still in the future in the time of the second book in this series (out next year) - there is a little note before the first chapter about this.


Therese @ 6%, i get a bit Adrien English (the dark tide) flashback.
spoiler for bad guy in that one:
(view spoiler)


Sofia @ 23% - what can I say I woke up very early this morning. Can only read a little bit this evening though.

Therese - I like the contrast between them - we still know very little about Kennedy (view spoiler)


Therese Boxner... His name is as he looks I guess, mr. Square.
Looking forward to see what that is all about. This book has started out very strong for me:-)


Sofia Me too Therese, I started reading around 6 am and only stopped when I had to leave for work.

Therese I was starting to get confused about all the art/painting references, like, why are they here, then I realized that that is what Jason's job is actually about *slaps forehead*. I need to sleep...


Therese Hmm, I can't update my status % on GR, is that something new...?


Sofia If it is showing page you can press on the word page to change it to percent.

I did an % update this morning.


Ingie It was a long work day today. At last back home. I'm at 14% (view spoiler) Will read a chapter or two before it's time for bed. Hope for a better reading-day tomorrow.

Like the start. :D

Thanks Sofia. I guessed we had heard his name in some book earlier.


Sofia Hope you get your reading time tomorrow Ingie.


♣ Irish Smurfétté ♣ Thank you for the invite, Honeybunny! :D

I haven't started yet. Looks like i need to! Lol

How is everyone?


Ingie Still time to join Andrea. We isn't that far and you're quick. Have a good feeling about this one so far.

I saw on the other BR-page that you are going to travel over here to Europe soon. Visiting Scotland, Ireland, a vacation or a work trip or what?


Sofia Waving at you from here to Andrea : D and happy trip of course (plus of course you'll be happy closer to us : P)

Liking this very much. Trying to make an effort not to gobble yp like i want to.

@56% what can I say, glacier do melt so nicely : D

I will have to go back to work in April:-(.....Home on maternity leave at the moment. But nights are always free:-))

me too

and now I'm sad because I finished and I have to wait till next year for more of these guys - very hot together.


Sofia and work has got back to normal Ingie so I can shove it around a bit when I meet certain books.


Therese Sofia, since you are finished, you have reached 70 %....What did you think of (view spoiler)

Sofia I would even stay away because of the cold Therese, i wait for the sun to warm the water first, let alone the other stuff. On the other hand I've driven in storms with danger of flood, so not so sensible there. :-)

Patience my friend, the ice needs to start melting : P

Rosa, really Okay, it's 330, I'm on the couch, I'm ready to go.

Oh shit, I need tea.

Okay, it's 336, I'm on the couch, I've got my tea, I'm ready to go.


Ingie Fell a sleep after 43%. Will continue on the bus. See you all tonight.

Any thoughts yet Rosa?

Ingie I feel I want to know much more abou K. What is he thinking? I truly don't have a clue about him yet halfway done.


Sofia Ingela wrote: "I feel I want to know much more abou K. What is he thinking? I truly don't have a clue about him yet halfway done."

that's what I mean with the melting, slow drip really. I want to know more too Ingie.

336 pages? It seemed much shorter.


message 45: by Rosa, really (new) - added it

Rosa, really No, sorry, Sof, I was referring to the time. It was 3:36pm. Or 15:36. However Europeans tell time. ;D

I'm at about 21%? 24% Kindle's in the other room. I'm enjoying the whole Jason (view spoiler) He's a a little Adrien English (of course). And Kennedy is Jake. NATURALLY. :D I'm not feeling the romance much either at this point, except that Jason very reluctantly finds Kennedy attractive and he notices things like the sauce from the Chinese food making Kennedy's lower lip shine. That's romance novel talk for I'M GONNA BONE YOU SO HARD. Or you're gonna bone me. Either/or.

I just finished the scene where Jason goes to that bar (view spoiler) and runs into Boxner. His insinuations worry me. DUN DUN DUUUUUN.


Ingie Boxner isn't a favorite. I just feel ( actually KNOW) it is something odd with him.


Ingie You're better reading those smexy signs than me Rosa :)))))


Ingie Sofia, I smile every time opening this thread watching that beautiful mermaid painting you added. It is just lovely ... I feel her.

It's like in an MF romance...if the dude notices the highlights in a woman's hair, it's gonna be luuuuurve.


Sofia I love the colours too Ingie :D

I'm reading your updates Ro and Ingie and I want to tell you so much and I cannot :P



I got the similarities you mentioned Ro but after a while they became themselves. Let's see how you feel later. Anywhich way even if they sometimes remind me of some trait of A & J, I like that because I like those guys too.
