“A vibrant world of romance, action, and gaming adventure rolled into one darkly entertaining read!” ―Larissa Ione, New York Times bestselling author, on Game Over
“Keating has created a female version of the film Tron, but with more excitement and realism. The romance is a soul-touching, emotional ride. Both River and Hawk are more than capable of taking care of themselves, but when they come together, they really thrive.” ―RT Book Reviews on Game Over
“A perfect trifecta of danger, magic and romance. Game Over [is] a true page-turner and an instant favorite.” ―Joyfully Reviewed

`Mind Games' is a story which moves along quickly because the foundation was laid down well in `Game Over' (a must read prior to picking up `Mind Games'). The author has written a story full of twists and turns along with unexpected surprises. Also, the forbidden relationship between Hawk and River heats up intensely. Even back in the `real world', Hawk and River are a formidable team. `Mind Games' is well-written and the story flows along seamlessly from `Game Over'. Sometimes the first book in a series is excellent and the second book doesn't live up to the first, but this is not the case here. The author has kept the level of writing just as high as in the first book. I was excited as the author unveiled even more of the truth behind the secrets and lies, the action ramped up, and the book came to a spectacular end which will leave you begging for the next book in this series.
Guardian Series: Game Over (1), Mind Games (2), Fair Game (3)
Page after page of twists and sub plots will keep you up all night reading
When the real world is worse than a virtual world, it has River Weston almost wishing she was trapped with the evil soulless Dark Lord once again. However, since River seems to attract nothing but trouble in either world she's a gal who learns to cope. Getting pinned for murderous crimes on her home planet means she's once again on the run, with Guardian, lover and Fey teacher Chase Hawkins, commonly called Hawk.
Hawk isn't Fey but he's had more experience with them than River, so she has no choice but to trust him. Back on his home planet, Hawk's body, still trapped in a cryogenic state because he volunteered for the extended mission, starts to falter. And that has the Guardian Council wanting to pull the plug on him. At least one of Hawks' friends believes in fighting for his life, but even he might not save Hawk in the end.
To top that off, Nick, River's ex-boyfriend is trapped with the Dark Lord and he's able to invade Hawk's dreams. Making matters more personal, River feels obligated to free the Fey souls trapped in the strange graveyard. Her journey enables her to learn more about her combined Fey-Guardian heritage and trust in her own powers.
The pace Taylor Keating creates for the reader will leave you breathless and wanting more. Page after page something new, consuming and imagination-filled grabs you. Thank goodness Hawk and River finally have sex because this reader was going to kill the writer if the almost but not quite tantalizing sexual tension between them didn't get fulfilled.
I loved the twists, turns and sub-plots of this story, and the ending will make you twitch to get your fingers on the third book in this series. This is the sequel to Keating's first Game Over, TOR publication and I can't wait to read more. To learn more about Keating check out [...]
