At one point, they claim that 3 girls are born for every 1 boy in this colony. Even though Mallet thinks it's the pain medication talking, he accepts her challenge. Foster decides to experiment, that she gives her readers proper forewarning as it seems that way too many fans and readers were distraught by the surprise - as I most likely would have been had I not read all those distressed reviews. The things that did not make sense included, but are not limited to: 1. The story could have worked without making Michael, her hero, travel to the future with a woman who comes across a bit too naïve and un-worldly for no reason I can really think of. Anyway, I dont want to give too much away because it is a must read!! First, because I was distracted by the sudden shift in genre within the same series.
Kayli appears and offers him a new life, in a new place, with working legs! I hope 5 goes back to the style of the series that has worked so far. They lust after each other, the hero? This book was a whole different caliber from what we usually get and it was cheesy as hell. I informed you previously, remember? At the lack of agony, he sucked in his breath and turned to Kayli with so much hope, her heart melted. Knocked out in one world, he? Instead, we've got a bunch of hoity-toity morals with monogomous unions and a whole lot of frustrated virgins. The reason this seemed so bizarre is this is not what she writes and not what I've come to expect from this specific series.
Miss Foster took unpredictable to a new and thoroughly disappointing level. She will have him healed if he comes with her to help her colony and save her people, which they would travel through teleportation and her spaceship. If I paid the retail price, I would have been upset. Other than a scene at the beginning and one at the end, all the past characters were personas non gratas. I was very dissapointed in this book, having loved the first three books of this series. Other people have either loved or loathed this and it just goes to show that you can't please everyone all of the time.
Michael Mallet Manchester is injured and told he will not be able to fight again. Her naïve shyness was done in a very sweet, honest way, and I liked that. I really like her writing even Michael is seriously injured and thinks he's hallucinating when a beautiful woman appears and disappears in his hospital room promising to cure him if he goes with her to her colony. These are about ultimate fighters. If he no longer fit in with them, what would he do? And just as quickly as his career was taking off, it? Mallet was unbelievable charming and sweet. Kayli's colony needs a warrior to help train them to protect themselves.
So we should all get over all the reasons why it is different, and enjoy the freshness of it. Then Kaylie Raine appears, offering him a second chance at becoming whole. Even though Mallet thinks it? This book is totally different. I wonder if it will be of the science fiction theme or back to the real world? I'm sure I'll revise this when i finish but it's a tad bit off-putting. ! But on its own, with a few references to the other characters and such, it was an enjoyable read.
And on an extraordinary journey with Kaylie, he'll get a chance to fight again'to save the woman who has saved him. But, if you pop over to Amazon, out of 149 reviews this book got there, 106 were 1- or 2-star reviews. It's weird that she shifts gears this much within her series. Follow his conscience and gut instincts to the 23rd century. Not only did he total his lovely little sports car but managed to mangle his leg at the same time. But, if you pop over to Amazon, out of 149 reviews this book got there, 106 were 1- or 2-star reviews.
Yes, he was bigger, but that only covered half of it. Some might say that I didn't give this book a chance, but let me tell you, I managed to suffer through to the middle, and I just hated it so that I couldn't get myself to read anymore. And he is expected to procreate with them. But before he can step into the cage for a shot at the title, a car accident destroys his dream. Imagine his surprise when she heals his leg and whisks him away to the future to train a community of women warriors! I even leafed to the last pages, to see, if there was some sort of compromise, after ending the friggin war, they would go back to Mallet's time, but did they? It didn't make the least bit of sense.
Unfortunately I didn't really like it. Thank goodness I rented and didn't buy the damn thing. Manchester is injured in a car accident. Kayli has the position of the Calviger. Fighting is out of the question. He likes this future where everything seems clean and whole.
Foster writes a captivating story with plot twists that keeps the reader glued to his or her seat regardless of the time period. After accepting the robe from an assistant, Kayli glued her attention north of his broad shoulders and held it out to him. I was led to wonder if I had the wrong man. I also didn't like how disconnected this book felt from the rest of the series. Well, I always look forward to a Lori Foster book, but I was hesitant to read this last one due to the negative review on Amazon. Such is the story of My Man, Michael.
Even though he thinks she's a little off her rocker, or maybe he's a little off his rocker! It was the just the sudden, jarring change of story within the series and the book itself that made me hate it. Could you please loosen your grip? As for me, unfortunately, I fall into the 1-star category. Then Kayli Raine appears, offering him a second chance at becoming whole. Foster has never read any good sci fi if she's read any sci fi at all. Okay, do not let this book scare you away from the series by any means, but in all honesty if you like the series, you may want to skip this book. But as Claviger of the colony, Kayli was never to marry.
