Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.
Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works.

She's refreshingly honest for a heroine and that comes across the clearest in her devotion to her boyfriend Asher. They are a great couple. I want more Gabe and I want it now. I also want to write more and more sentences about him, but if I do I will spoil all your reading fun and I'm determined not to do that.

JeanzBookReadNReview: TOUCHED - A SENSE THIEVES NOVEL BY CORRINE JACKSON
This was another great instalment in this series, and I really enjoyed it! Remy continued to be pretty selfless in this book, and I really felt sorry for her and everything she had to go through. She really did endure more than anyone should ever have to endure, and was forced to hurt people she loved just to keep them safe. The storyline in thi Source: I own a copy of this book.
There was some romance, and again — shocks in store there.

The ending — big cliff-hanger, but a really great ending that literally had me screaming! Overall; great sequel! Oct 12, Treena rated it liked it Shelves: paranormal-urban-fantasy. I really loved book 1. Super enjoyed it. This one I don't think I like the turn it's taking because I really don't like love triangles.

Pushed was a disappointment. In a recording from her mother, Remy learns how to contact her grandfather. His wife was a healer and he may have answers to the many questions that plague Remy. How is she different? Why is she different? Can she control it? Remy leaves home to seek answers and meet her grandfather. She is welcomed with opened arms and meets the healer community. However, people are keeping secrets and there are few people that Remy can trust. Pushed wasn't a poorly written book. Something always seems to be happening at every turn and I still love the characters.
Well, mostly. Hang in there, I might rant for a bit here. I love Asher and Remy together. They are so cute! Now part way through the book Asher runs into some trouble and Remy is left to fend for herself.
Asher has a brother, Gabe, who "hates" Remy. When Asher is in trouble, Gabe travels down to see Remy and get revenge for his brother.
Why did he have to fall in love with her? It was completely unnecessary. When they were growing closer, like brother and sister, I thought it was cute and I started to like Gabe more. But I was wrong. It pissed me off and now the third book in this series says that "old bonds fray" and "Remy finds herself growing closer to Asher's brother Gabe. I did not want a love triangle with this series and I'm not happy about it. Sometimes love triangles are ok, but not here. Under his breath, Gabe added, "Speak for yourself, Remy. At least for me. A cliffhanger.
Series: Sense Thieves
I'm not amused. Remy never seems to catch a break in Pushed. It does create for a lot of action and page turning, but it just makes me feel bad for Remy. It almost seemed like to avoid the "slow second book" the author tried to fit too much in and it was a bit crazy. That girl has been through so much. Just when it seems that Remy can finally relax, the author snatches it away. It just kinda bugged me, especially with the way the cliffhanger hurt Remy. I really like Remy, she's a great main character. I was also bummed that we didn't get to see much of her dad, step mom, and step sister.
They're such a cute family. Love them! I didn't really see the plot twists coming and I'm still not sure they made sense within the context of the story. Certain characters made decisions that seemed very out of character. The next book, Ignited, comes out in May and I'm just not excited to read it like I was for this book. I've been going back and forth on whether or not I should recommend this series and I'm still not sure. Maybe after I read the final book, if that happens, I'll let you know.

Touched also ends with a rather resolute ending. All that considered, this book is considerably better than I expected it to be. As it turns out, Jackson continued the story of Touched because she did have more ideas for where the plot could go, and I was surprised how much I was engaged at the story she tells here.
In the plot itself, there are some predictable beats, but there are also some very unexpected twists and turns. There are some flaws - Jackson makes the big mistake of writing two scenes that could serve as climaxes - but for the most part, the story here is more engaging than it was in Touched.
She also has a depressing lack of chemistry with Asher. I had a lot of trouble getting invested in their relationship, which is a bit of a problem in a paranormal romance book. Their loving moments always felt forced and dispassionate to me.
Both this book and Touched are just generally forgettable and inoffensive. This review can also be found on my blog. Aug 15, Kt rated it really liked it Shelves: received-for-review. Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..
Touched (Sense Thieves Series #1)
I'm honestly at a loss where to begin with this review. The entire book is one giant spoiler in my opinion from the point where she travels to the Healer community on. I mean just the fact that Asher followed her there, should be warning enough, but let me just say it, this book is utterly heart breaking. And while I saw one of the twists coming, there were so many more that completely derailed me.
These types of books are so incredibly hard Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession.. These types of books are so incredibly hard for me to review as there are so many things I would love to talk about, one HUGE thing in my opinion that irrevocably changed a dynamic between the characters. Actually, this one twist is so huge at least to me that I'm going to break one of my rules and have a spoiler section below.
While the world behind this series is really interesting, especially now that more of the secrets behind the Healers have been revealed, it is honestly the characters that steal the show. Remy is so strong and has grown so much. Sure, she's still pretty niave, and quick to jump into the fray without thinking things through first, but honestly that's one of the things I love about her. While the others would prefer her to hold herself back, when someone is injured, she can't help but step up to help them, even though it costs her greatly.
When I think back to everything she has endured in her life, it is utterly amazing to me that she hasn't snapped. Luckily now she has the support of her friends and family. From the fiercely protective Asher, to her sister, dad and step-mother, and even Asher's surly siblings, she has backup and the security she never had before. Sure things will never be easy for her because of what she is, but at least she's not alone anymore.
I enjoyed Touched even though it left me with a few frustrations, but PUSHED really took everything a step further, and really cemented my love for this series. In fact, the final installment is easily on my most anticipated list for next year, that's how excited I am for it. So, if you enjoyed Touched, then you will not want to miss this fantastic book as it is one heck of a roller coaster ride from start to finish!
Wow, Remy and Gabe. Never in a million years would I have predicted their dynamic to change so drastically. Even more surprising is that I'm actually in favor of that change. Typically in any triangle situation, I pick a guy and stick with him. I don't change my mind.
Yet this time around I find myself wanting to do just that, even if I know it's a long shot, and not where Remy's heart lies. There's just something about him, now that I know there is so much more than meets the eye. I honestly think he cares for her more than Asher ever could, which doesn't diminish Asher's feelings at all. I'm just saying that there is a maturity to Gabe that makes me think he just has a better handle on what he really wants. My heart broke so much for him having to watch Remy love Asher so much, all the while his own guilt at coveting his brother's girl ate at him.
I am trying to hold out hope for things between them, but when you consider the way things ended in this book, and that there is only one more book left in the trilogy, it doesn't look good. How about you? Do you often change your mind in love triangles, or does something big have to happen first? Or, do you never change no matter what? Feb 11, Henrietta rated it it was amazing. Could Remy find a way to bargain with the Protectors without getting herself killed? I adored Remy. I honestly thought she and Asher would have some sweet, intimate moments while they were on the trip and when a sweet rendezvous turned deadly, my heart sank and I wondered why life was so unfair to this couple.
Remy totally deserved a break from pain and torture in my opinion but treacherous things just kept happening!
