If you are a fan of the SBC series; Causing Havoc, Simon Says, etc., don't expect this to be the same. This is a sci-fi futuristic time travel flik using a character from the SBC series. I had been waiting for this release and even pre-ordered it. I was SO! disappointed. Not what I was looking far.

I am a huge fan of Lori, and even like her new paranormal "Servant" series. This one is a little different than her other SBC stories, and you would never know it by reading the back cover, which is why I think a lot of readers were a little confused after reading it. While it is part of the SBC series, it deals very little with the other SBC books. I would classify it more as a Fantasy romance, instead of her usual contemporary romance, which is why Lori has added a special note to her website that she is not leaving the genre that made her a bestselling author.
I gave this book 3 stars. I liked the main characters, but just did not get into the story like I usually do with her other SBC books (Simon Says is still my fav). I have to say I was a little disappointed after reading this anxiously awaited story. If this is your first Lori Foster, this is unlike any of her other books, if not then just be forwarned for something a little different.

Big disappointment! I don't mind the paranormal genre, but when I'm buying a book that sounds like a contemporary romance & it turns into some weird science fiction book that doesn't have much at all to do with the SBC series I was expecting......blech!

If you've been waiting for this one, I strongly suggest skipping it. It might be Lori Foster, but it just isn't worth it!

I was a little diappointed when I read reviews that the book I had been so looking forward to involved time travel and not the comtemporary SBC storyline that I was expecting. After reading the book, I thought it was very well done. It was a fast read and I liked the characters although the ending was easily predicted. Overall, not my favorite Foster book but it was still enjoyable.

After reading posted reviews, I was prepared for the differences in this SBC series. However, the story was quick fun read - different yes but since I knew about the change, not unpleasant!

this was my least favorite of the series, it was ok, but not up to par with the others. the whole off planet part was a bit too much, and I didn't feel he was "the man for me" lol

So this series is about SBC Fighters (you know like the UFC). I have really enjoyed every book in this series but this one. I'm sorry but i wasn't expecting a book in the middle of the series to be about a different time. A woman from the future comes back in time for an injured SBC Fighter to travel to the future to help her save her colony...really. It did not fit in with the rest of the series. I was really looking forward to reading about Michael "Mallet" Manchester. Then to read this one I was sooo disappointed. I felt like Michael was robbed of a good story. Glad that her next book in the series gets back to what the series was about to begin with. You could definitely skip this book in the series in my personal opinion

I continue to enjoy this series - although the remarkedly science fiction turn this story took completely suprised me. I enjoyed the characters and the plot. I will admit that I'd have like a bit more testosterone and battle but it worked out well. Will continue with the seriew.
