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)

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)

It wasn't interesting at all at first since I usually don't like reading from the character's point of view. However, after I got used to that, I became intrigued by Mac's story. It was an original work from Karen; one that got me and my sisters hooked.
I like reading about Mac's development (mentally and emotionally) as the story started to reveal itself. Karen added in characters who weren't just people needed to make the plot go faster. Every character had a connection to the plot line and they highly influenced Mac's actions.
At the beginning we see Mac as a spoiled, normal, laid-back, blond chick that didn't had a care in the world. However, after her sister's death we begin to see Mac in a different life. She then developed two sides to her; the girlie Mac (loves rainbow, pink, and pretty stuff) and the dark Mac (loves blood, black, and gory stuff) and they both hate each other. She wants revenge and she wants it serve cold. And bloody. She doesn't care who stands in her way and she's willing to do anything to see it that her sister's killer(s) are dead. Then she meets the ever so mysterious Barrons who take her on an even wilder ride. We don't know much about Barrons except that he owns a book shop, is dangerous, know how to kick butt, and can fly (kinda . . . but not really).
There is one thing that I would like to mention about where the book went flat such as how Mac kept blaming Barrons for EVERYTHING that went wrong. The problems didn't start with Barrons but in Mac's eyes she just wanted blame him. This did got annoying after awhile but it is understandable since her sister is dead and she has no help from anyone. Not from the death-by-sex Vlane, the old lady in the abbey, and definitely not Barrons who all are keeping secrets from her. Secrets that can kill her. But luckily, Mac is not one of those heroines who accept what she hear and get sulky when everyone tells her to stay in one place. She's the type who goes out into the dark world and gets the damn information herself. No one will help her and that alone will not protect her from the enemies. Ignorance is not bless and Mac is empowering herself with knowledge. That is an admirable trait.
I think I'm drawn toward Mac because she's a character who changes along with the plot line and when I mean change I don't mean changing under wares after a quick laid with the hero. I, for one, am glad that Karen doesn't go with the typical first point of view heroines. Usually they would end up sleeping with the hero in the first five chapters of book one and has no character developments at all.
This is only the first books so don’t expect that we will get all the answers solve right away or a quick unrealistic romance between the hero and heroine. Besides, what kind of fun will that be? (less)
