I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
I didn't dig John Taylor so much.
And there goes your UF series. He is an ok main character, but the whole "I can't let peopel come close for REASONS" is not exactly original, and guess what? He didn't adhere to his own stupid rule and made kissy-face with his client after approximately 2 hours of acquaintance...Not what I would call aloof...
The story was well told, the plot had a lot going on and the characters were more or less interesting.
It it was 2 Euros instead of 4-5 per novel I might have considered reading on with the series, but it wasn't that good.
