This book was alright. I think Lori Foster should have kept it real instead of putting a sci-fi twist on the series expecially with this character.

I was looking forward to "The Mallets" story then to have the sci-fi crap tossed in I was disappointed.

Hopefully the next story about Dean will be a bit more par to course with the series.

I read the first couple of chapters and then threw my book across the room!! I am so upset. I don't think it's fair of an author to take a series that is loved, and a character that people are really looking forward to reading about, and just change it into something entirely different. If she wants to write time travel books, fine!! But she should have wrote a time travel book that wasn't already part of an established series. I hope that she doesn't do this to any future SBC books, if she does then as much as I enjoy her writing, I will not continue to read her books.

Time Travel. Really? Why not alien space invaders or animals that talk to cheese? Maybe because up until now this series has centered around characters who live in the real world!!! They could have at least mentioned the small fact of this book being a futuristic piece of crap on the description before i went ahead and bought it. Very Dissapointed.

I've enjoyed all of the books in the SBC series but didn't think this one was as good. If it had been a book all it's own without being part of the series it would have been alright. I am a fan of the fantasy genre, but I've never been a big fan of time travel books so my judgement might be a bit colored. That being said, I didn't like the incorporation of time travel into this series. The characters were okay, but I didn't get into them as much as with the other books that she's written. I'm looking forward to the next book and hoping that it's more in keeping with the rest of the books in the series.

Nothing in the pre-views I read about this book prepared me for how bad it would be! Didn't expect time travel and space ships in what I thought would be a romance novel. The time travel background was lame and the characters weren't much better. All around let down.

I was extremely bummed with Lori Foster's My Man Micheal. I was really excited to read the newest of the SBC series, but this wasn't anything like the other SBC books. It makes zero sense to me why she screwed up the SBC series like this. This would have been a wonderful book if she hadn't used the SBC series to bring in her paranormal world. I'm very disappointed!

I love Lori Foster, but this was not one of my favorite books. The whole "I'm from the future" theme was shallow. There was very little explanation or description given about the ship, the planet, anything.
It seems like maybe the author was on a deadline, and writing fast.
Not up to her usual standard, but a pretty good book anyway.

I was disappointed with this book. Based on the other books in this series I was so excited that the next book was finally out. What a let down! This is the first of any Lori Foster book that I didn't finish. At about halfway thru the 2nd chapter I didn't want to read it anymore. I flipped to the end and was so glad I didn't finish reading it. What a waste of a book. This author is one of my favorites, but I guess even she has off books. I was just disappointed to see this was one of them.

I had been waiting so long to read "Mallet's" story and was so disapointed !! Lori what have you done ?? It was so un-realistic and so far from the other books in the series. I think she could have wrote this book using another character, not one from the SBC . Tho I really tried to enjoy it , I kept thinking on every page , this is so far fetched and tell me he is going to wake up from this dream .
I love Lori Foster's writting and she got me hooked from Jude's Law and I hope she continues this series.... but back on earth !!!!

Not at all expected based on the previous 3 books. This is a science fiction novel, not a contemporary romance. If you like the SBC series, I wouldn't waste your time with this book. It doesn't fit in with the series other than Michael being in previous books. I was really hoping that he was just really drugged up while healing from the accident and he'd wake up from this crazy dream, but by Chapter 4 I was so done. The other characters from the SBC make a brief visit probably to justify the claim that it's Book #4 in the series.

Ok, I think I've bagged on this story enough. Read at your own risk.

After the last book, i expected way better from ms. Foster. This was truly awful. DON'T BUY. This was terrible. It was so off from the rest of the series and i wanted to cry from disappointment. Time travel? Sci-fi? Really? Why would anyone interested in a SBC fighter series want to read about one of the characters time traveling? This was a big effing mistake. This book should have never been written if this is how it turned out. Stick with what works, and time traveling doesn't work with MMA nor does kooky sci-fi crap. Whoever agreed to publish this book was a moron.

Love this series, didn't love this book. I only read the first two chapters and couldn't go any further. I should have read the other reader's comments before buying the book. Disappointed, but will skip to the next book and hope it's as good as the first three.

After reading the other books in this series, I was extremely displeased that this book was part Sci-Fi.
