I Also Recommend:
Reading the Ganzfield series, is a bit like being in a mentally abusive relationship with someone you can't help but love anyway. And Kate, I do love you, but I'm so emotionally drained after reading these books and I love every freaking minute of it! And each one just keeps getting better and better. With Ms. Kaynak the grand puppet master of it all sitting high on her lofty perch. I swear I have a bit of minder in me because I can hear her now:
"Aww. Cute little readers. All snug and feeling safe and secure. You like that new character I brought in do ya? WELL THINK AGAIN!!" *Character X drops dead* *Evil cackles ensue*
Yeah she really gets you in the feels department. Which has me freaking out because a character Seth who I've always liked pretty well when he's popped up in the past, has now worked his way into my heart and I adore him. So much. And there are still three books left. If he doesn't make it through to the end...*sigh* I don't know what I'll do...Hmmm. Can you unread books? Because I'll take it all back I swear I will!
The best thing about Accused, though, is that it is the funniest of the series so far. Man can this woman write humorous scenes. I was bursting out laughing. Literally in tears, no joke, at points. You need to read these books just to get to this one for the scenes where Maddie and Trevor get darted alone. That's all I'm saying. I know it doesn't make sense now. You can come back later and thank me.
And thank goodness I have Operative sitting right here ready to go next. The way this one ended. Ugh. The feels. Now I need to go recover and get a good nights sleep so I can start the abuse all over again tomorrow with the next book. YOU need to go add these books to your piles! All of them!

Before I sit down to read the newest book in the Ganzfield series, I always get butterflies in my stomach. So much anticipation! I keep expecting (not that I want this to happen) for Kaynac to have an off book, because it's so hard to keep a long series going without having one. But she never fails to amaze me. With each new book, there's even more action, tension, and passion. She always finds a way to bring something new to the series and keep me guessing.
Maddie has just been through SO much! I honestly didn't think she could survive much more. I thought surely Kaynac would give her some down time. But nope. Maddie is tested harder than ever in this new installment. And even though Trevor wasn't physically beside her for a while; he was still with her, making her strong. Their relationship is taken to new levels, and as they get closer, other things are pulling them further apart. It was painful at times, sweet and passion-filled at others, and through it all, I just kept rooting for them.
Ann surprised me. She was getting stronger in the last book, but she really takes it up a notch in this one. And Seth, I really enjoyed him. I have to say he was one of my favorite parts of this story. I hope to get more of him in the next book. And of course there's Zack. My bad boy hottie. He was awesome. Though the ending left me with a twisting knot in my gut, I'm still loving him, and can't wait to find out what happens next. If you have not started this series yet, I don't know what you're waiting for. All the characters of Ganzfield have become like a family to me, and I look forward to seeing where Kaynac takes this series next!

Ganzfield Series Book 4
Shortly after using my secret remote ability on Kate Kaynak, I was thrilled to receive an ARC of Ganzfield Series book 4 Accused .What a fabulous way to spend the 4th - fireworks before the fireworks! Accused is incredibly intense, mind-boggling, romance filled and action-packed. Kate Kaynak left no small detail without a unique connection. Abilities abounded, relationships deepened and Rachel and her baby made me want to don a tinfoil suit and become her honorary auntie!
It's extremely challenging to discuss anything from Accused without spoiling it, but here goes. Just looking at the cover lets you in on Maddie's imprisonment. Colonel Hunter is one sick,evil officer-gone-rogue keeping her in a secret facility. His intentions are to "break" and control Maddie and his efforts make you want to pour all you inner strength into her so she can survive and be reunited with Trevor and everyone at Ganzfield. My heart broke for Maddie!
Ah, but the rest of the book is loaded with fascinating mixtures of abilities and combinations of characters that will keep you glued to Accused.I don't want to spoil the story, but I'll let you in on one secret I think I figured out: Kate Kaynak unknowingly reveals her true identity as an actual member of Ganzfield living her life as an author in a remote location. She uses her reverse RV ability - causing you to seek her book out, minder-projects a vivid, action packed, romantic, thrilling and touching dream into your mind and then charms you into believing you simply read a fabulous novel in your own living room. She's a sneaky one, that Kate!
The only thing I really, really hated was the four words on page 251 "End of book four"!
If you are reading this review and have no idea what I am talking about, then you MUST, MUST read Minder - you will have the advantage of jumping right to books 2-4 after that this summer. You can find these books here on B&N and Accused is expected to be released August 15th
I give Accused 5 firecrackin' stars!

Kate did it again! Accused was thrilling and I never wanted to put it down. If you haven't read this series yet, you are seriously missing out, and I'm telling you--this is the good stuff, and you are missing one of the best series ever.
I'm already attached to Maddie, but I felt so much for her in this book. As if she hasn't gone through enough, she's taken on another rollercoaster ride, and Kate thinks up whole new ways to torture her. ;)
The details are amazing, and I feel like I'm right there with her dealing with everything she's going through even though some of it is not so pleasant.
Trevor is as awesome as ever in this book, and there are some really intense scenes between him and Maddie, and although I can't really say much more than that, just prepare yourself! There were a few scenes that he absolutely surprised me, and I never really saw it coming, and now I can't wait to find out how it resolves, but alas, I'm left waiting and anxiously tapping my foot for more.
Kate wrote some amazingly funny scenes in this one, and had me rolling and my husband giving me that look like he's trying to decide if I need to be committed...
So, if you can't tell, I def recommend this one.
