    This is the first novel I have read by Susan Hatler, and it was such a delight. This is the first book in the Mindreader Series. It was fast-paced and thrilling, and I am really looking forward to reading more. The main character, Kylie Bates is your typical high school student, trying to fit in, crushing on a guy, and kind of insecure. All of the sudden she discovers she has the ability to read minds. Her snarky personality and hilarious inner dialogue makes for some very entertaining moments, even in intense situations.

    After discovering her ability and talking to her dad about it, an incident arises where her dad wants her to go to the police station to work with hottie detective Sam Williams to find a missing girl. It turns out that the hottie detective has an even hotter cousin, who just happens to be Kylie's age. Trip, the hotter hottie, works part-time at the station and is a want-to-be assistant detective. He gets involved with the missing girl's case and Kylie, and things begin to get really interesting. Trip is totally swoon worthy, and romance between the two ensues. They also have a really steamy first kiss. Kylie discovers that a lot of what she has been told about her life, her mother, her father, and her relatives has been a lie, and tries to discover why so many things have been kept from her. She also discovers more about her power, and finds that she is not the only one with an ability.


    Shaken is a fast-paced combination of action, drama, and romance that will keep you in suspense, and keep you turning the page dying to see what happens next. Susan Hatler has done an excellent job writing the characters, they are so believable and fun to get to know, and the story line is great. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more in this action-packed series.

    Wonderful voice and storyline

    I absolutely loved this author's ability to create a young, fun heroine in Kylie while at the same time providing mystery and a hint of romance. This story deals with all of life's "biggies"--family, identity, love, and adventure, in a fresh and exciting way.

    This book was very cute and very well written. It is a book for all ages, not just young adults. This story is about Kylie who thinks she is a normal teenager living with her dad. Kylie finds out she has mind reading abilities one day when a stranger comes knocking at her door. This is where Kylie's adventure begins. Kylie is asked to work with the local police and assistant detective Trip, on finding Amanda, a kidnapping victim by using her abilities. Kylie not only helps find Amanda but also finds long lost relatives she had no idea she had. While working with the police to catch the kidnappers, Kylie realizes she really likes Trip but doesn't know if the feelings are mutual. When Kylie comes face to face with the man behind the kidnappings, her world is turned upside down finding out that not only is that man her real dad but he has been looking for her. In this first book, the story is about Kylie getting her abilities and finding out about the kidnapping. You don't find out too much information about her mother and where these abilities come from or why her mother ran away from her real father. This book leaves you with a lot of unanswered questions. I am hoping that you find out more in the next book. I will definitely continue to read.

    Loved it

    I really enjoyed this book. The ending was so good I think Kylie should've been less insecure though and have some back bone. But trip is a really good character!!!<3 I'm wondering when the next book is coming out in the MIND READER SERIES

    This is one of the best YA romances I've ever read. Actually, it's got enough edge-of-your-chair moments to be called suspense. In any case, I LOVED it!
