Never thought I would like a book about professional fighters, but I loved this one, read it three times in four years, marked it as a favorite, and put it on my keeper shelf. Only bought it because Lori Foster is one of my favorites and she is always an author I can count on. (It was not too melodramatic for me as I had a long lost younger brother who spent his childhood in Foster care – whereas I was adopted into a loving home - and looked me up decades later.) LF did a convincing job of siblings trying to reconnect.

The hero Havoc sucked me into the whole series, though I think this one is the best. He is HOT and tries so hard to be laid-back with the whole family connection and NOT being an older, dependable, protective brother. My roof was leaking at the time I read this book, so there I could relate. LOL. I liked Eve too. When Havoc meets her family was fun and believable. I felt the chemistry between Havoc and Eve was steamy. I could see their affair-turned-to-love happening as the pages turned and knew it was a given when she had her period and he brought ice cream. As a teenager I used to have a boyfriend that worked in an ice cream parlor and brought me rocky road. *Sigh*

The ‘who-done-it?’ kept me guessing; I can usually guess this aspect in romance books, so this was a nice change. The sub-romance plot between Jacki and Gregor was fun and enjoyable too. Not a big fan of tattoos, but the meaning of Havoc’s made me cry. So, yes, everything was firing on all cylinders for me with this one.

Debbie LOVE this series!

Lisa Kay Debbie, I did too. Really, never thought fighters could be so sexy. Lori Foster consistantly makes me happy.

Debbie The only book to this series I didn't like was My Man Michael. That one just didn't do much for me. I didn't like the turn in direction she took.

Lisa Kay My Man, Michael (SBC Fighters, #4) by Lori FosterThat's the only one in the series I haven't read. I have it as TBR. It involved time-travel, right? Saw the GR ratings and they are falling right down the line in all numbers (1-5). Interesting. She ususally comes in at all four stars for me with a nice occassional surprise five stars. Though Back in Black by Lori Foster was just okay for me, I knew and appreciate where she was coming from with the character.

Debbie Yeah,I know. She's usually a 4-5 star author for me too. It was a Time-travel and had a real Sci-fi theme. I usually like Time-travel, but I usually go into those types of books expecting that theme. This one was totally unexpected. I have no idea what she was thinking when she wrote this one.

Lisa Kay I have read time-travel books and like them too, but I know what you mean about surprises with twists like that. I don't like them to switch genre in mid stream. It happened with Linda Howard in Death Angel and turned a lot of people off. I set the book down and went back to it after about a week.
