Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The fifth installment in Foster's Visitation series (after Just a Hint—Clint) strives to be a Jennifer Crusie–style lighthearted romance with a paranormal kick, but while the setting and secondary characters possess charm, the bumpy plotting keeps readers from fully suspending their disbelief. Prompted by her young (and psychic) daughter, Cory, redhead Faith Owen tracks reclusive psychic Jamie Creed to his remote mountain cabin. Once ensconced there, Faith reveals that she once worked at the Farmington Research Institute, a facility where Jamie was treated like a mere animal and exploited for his psychic abilities. Jamie's first instinct is to kick Faith out on her sexy rear end, but she proves too persistent—and alluring, particularly since he hasn't had a woman in nearly a decade. Somewhere along the way, as the two explore their attraction to one another in raw, graphic sex scenes, lust becomes love, precipitously, though few will be convinced. Still, Jamie's charismatic friends, fellow Visitation residents who arrive at the base of Jamie's mountain, provide some welcome depth, and the mystery surrounding Visitation's latest vigilante and the secrets of Cory's parentage add intrigue.

From Booklist

Jamie Creed has chosen to isolate himself in a mountain hideaway, but the world won't let him live as a hermit. That's because Jamie is a psychic able to read minds and see the future. He uses his talents to protect the friends he really didn't want in the first place, and now Faith Owen, who has a big secret, is determined to make him fall in love with her. Villains intent on using Jamie's gifts for their own evil purposes also threaten the peace and serenity of the little town of Visitation. As characters from earlier books in Foster's Visitation series pop in and out like old friends, fans will be thrilled to see that enigmatic Jamie finally has his own book. This is the fifth title in this entertaining series--Say No to Joe? (2003), The Secret Life of Bryan (2004), When Bruce Met Cyn (2004), Just a Hint--Clint (2004)--and, like the other four, it is filled with Foster's trademark wit, humor, and sensuality.

I've always enjoyed Lori Foster's series. "The Buckhorn Brothers" series was as hot as it comes. The "Winston Brothers" series was great & segued into what I call "The Visitation Series". I enjoyed hearing the story of Joe (a Winston cousin) and Luna which was the first in the series. After reading "The Secret Life of Bryan I couldn't wait for the next book. "When Bruce Met Cyn" was far fetched, even for fiction. But I kept going and read "Just a Hint Clint" which had a completely annoying female lead. I had such high hopes for "Jamie" that I bought it in hardback.

Jamie has been a constant throughout the series. He's a mysterious, intuitive, and solitary man. Not to mention he's pretty hot. He's there when needed and is quick to help the residents. But he vanishes just as quickly and makes it clear that he's uncomfortable around people and prefers to live as he does, alone on his mountain.

My first problem: The entire group intends to converge on Jamie, with Alex leading because she's the only one who knows where Jamie lives. Remind me not to trust her with anything secret and/or life threatening. Generally, someone decides to live alone for one or all of three reasons. 1. They prefer to live alone. 2. They live alone in order to protect someone else. 3. They live alone because they're protecting themselves. It was very likely that one of the group or Jamie himself would be put in danger by their actions. I don't believe that those in the group such as Joe or Shay would allow this to happen. They'd have some respect for him and be a little more concerned about possible consequences.

Faith basically forces her way into Jamie's home, refuses to leave and admits that one of her goals is to have sex with him so she can control him better.

For almost 10 years Jamie has been living as a recluse in the mountains of North Carolina. He makes occasional appearances in Visitation, the closest town. Although he pretty much keeps to himself, lately he has found himself developing friendships with some of the people in Visitation which makes him uncomfortable. So when a woman suddenly appears on his mountain looking for him he's not sure how to handle it. Faith was sent to find Jamie and help him, although with what she's not sure yet. Faith knew Jamie years ago before the betrayal that had sent him into seclusion. Although Jamie had never noticed her back then she has always loved him. Jamie's unsure about trusting Faith but before long they find themselves involved in a passionate relationship and falling in love. But when the past suddenly comes back to haunt them can they both survive? Maybe with a little help from Jamie's friends in Visitation.

I have long been a fan of Lori Foster. Her books have a place of honor on my keeper shelf. With so many mainstream romance authors seemingly moving away from their fan bases it is such a wonderful treat to pick up a book by an author that you love and get what you expected. A sensual well told romance that grabs your attention, won't let you put it down until it over and leaves you wishing that it was longer because you weren't ready to stop reading. Readers of the Visitation stories have long waited for Jamie's story and they won't be disappointed. A sexy tortured hero, a heroine determined to help him, secrets which keep you engrossed waiting to find out what's happening, lots of help from the characters from the other Visitation books and the conclusion of Alyx and Scott's story make this book a must read for Lori Foster fans.

Jamie has been living life in the shadows. Or at least he has tried but some of Visitation's most headstrong citizens have not let him be totally alone. Of course he feels compelled to help when he "sees" something but he never expected anyone to want to help him. Than one rainy day his life changes with the invasion of one headstrong, chatty woman. She is dripping wet, sick with fever, and she's not going to stop until she has finally talked to Jamie. Faith is on a mission but first she must earn Jamie's trust before she will trust him with her own secret.

Faith is from Jamie's past but he doesn't know this until she shares with him a small part of how she "knows" him. Truth be told, she has always felt something for the mysterious Jamie. Men have never measured up to him. But failure on her mission is not an option. Now if she can only gain Jaime's trust and maybe, just maybe capture the heart of the one man she has ever loved.

Every once and awhile the loyal fans and readers of romance are treated to a romance hero that will live with them long after the romance is finished. Jamie Creed can now be added to that illustrious list. Ms. Foster's latest effort has been well worth the wait. "Jamie" is without a doubt my favorite in the "Visitation Series" and for readers that have been waiting for his story, you won't be sorry. Plot, pacing, and characterization are top drawer. End result you will have a wonderful book to escape into filled with old friends, and one sensual romantic storyline between Jaime and Faith. I highly recommend this read and any other titles on Ms. Foster's backlist.
