EDIT: I love the way the hero's past was revealed. Really caught me by surprise.(less)

I loved everything about the book from the heartbreak to the scenes where the couple had to fight villians to the smoking foreplays. And my heart felt for Bridget who has had three miscarriages in the past. But with Adrian's help and love their HEA was so right and made me gushed all over the book. . . but really, not literally. I can't wait for Agent Blue's book and there'd better be one!(less)

I love how the heroine Zosia had this "flaw" that is actually life altering and not something stupid like having freckles or that she is from a out-of-this-world-crazy-family. Pssh, like that's anything new or damaging. I gotta admit that the hero Tristan who like to cut himself and saw no worth in himself was an appealing somewhat different character from most other males. A true brooding almost depressing hero. I couldn't imagine truer characters who were not only far from perfect but actually had real life problems that made them so attractive.
The only problem I had with this book was that it was just so damn descriptive and more than halfway through the book I was bored with it. The ending could had been better then the "oops, I gotta wrap this up and tie it in a pretty bow" ending the author gave us. Big whoop that she got pregnant after the first time--not that you can't but I won't go into the dilemma.(less)

Truth be told, I forgot how this book goes even though I just read it two days ago. It's forgettable. But damn, that Jack guy was to die for! This I say with no guilt.(less)

Strong, dreamy, calm, reliable and just so damn sexy. He made my heart swoon and sigh I just couldn't get enough of him. Now the heroine and the storyline itself? Not so impressive or as captivating. Though Amelia is a strong heroine she lacked anything memorable to remember her by. The siblings was a nice add and each had their own personality.
Ok, maybe I'm just a bit peeved that Cam and Daisy didn't get together. Whatever, jumping off the band wagon now.(less)

He has been dealing with the bitch Artemis for too long and has been betrayed so many times that he has no trust left. He sets up a barrier between him and everyone--humen, God, and those in-betweens-- else despite their efforts to get close to him. The only person to get close to him is a woman by the name of Tory. Tory is the woman who accepts Ash for who he is regardless of his past and is willing to walk to Hell for him, not to mention she gives Artemis a run for her money. She stands up to him but isn't afraid to protect him either.
I had felt that Kenyon rushed Archeon and Tory's relationship too much and it wasn't as detailed as her other Dark Hunter series. I wished that she had written Archeon's past and Archeon & Tory's story in two seperate books. There are times when it was confusing and a bit forced but thinking it logically—I am glad that at long last Archeon has someone who he can call his own, someone who can love him with no prejudice, and someone who will kill for him.
I do believe that Ash and Tory are two lonely creatures who probably felt some kind of connection with each other in a very short amount of time. They probably do love each other but it's not at its strongest point, yet. But then, nothing says I-want-to-get-to-know-you-better than marry/live with the man, have smoking sex with him, and then beat him over the head for being so damn hard to resist.
I had--and still have--a major weak spot for Ash and that says a lot since I dislike the majority of Kenyon's male and female characters. There are only a few characters--Urain, Zarek, Jaden, Jared, Jeriocho, Hades, and Savitar--that I adore dearly. I swore that I would never read Kenyon's stories again but I will only because I want to read more or actually skip to the scenes about Ash & Tory. They're like the ultimate couple.
I think the only people who should read "Acheron" are those who actually like him and want to understand him more. I mean picking up his gazillion chapters book is like giving yourself a death sentence if you think "Ash" is something you collect from a volcano sight. I read it because I wanted to know that he had someone special--who was willing and waiting to stand by his side until they die. Of all the characters I ever read about; he's the one who deserves love the most. (less)

I mean, come'on, SBC Fighters and time travel? Who cannot get a kick out of this book??! I know I darn well did.
I read the first few books on the SBC series then I came upon this book and find out there's suddenly time travel involved? Talk about pulling the rabbit out of the magic hat. I had to re-read the beginning just to make sure I was reading Lori Foster's My Man Michael because it felt like I was read some science/fantasy book and also, I was laughing too hard to understand anything I was reading.
Foster just threw in time travel so I guess a lot of people are shock and/or angry to find that kind of thing in her SBC seires, heck I knew I was shock. The storyline didn't go well with the rest of the other SBC seires and it kinda flop around the middle to a certain degree.
IMO, I think Foster should had stay with just contemporary and write about her fantasy & time travel in another series.
However, after I got over my initial shock I admit that I did enjoy this book even through the craziness and virgin hunts and kidnapping and LOL moments.The chemistry between the characters is smoking hot and it's enjoyable when you have nothing to do but watch rain pour down on your window. (less)
