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.

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 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 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. She's supposedly shy and yet she's always flaunting some uncovered part of her anatomy at him. She acts like a child, pouts when she doesn't get her way and when she doesn't want to hear something Jamie says; she sticks her fingers in her ears and chants "Lah, lah, lah." She has a plain face, as we are constantly told, but as Jamie put's it she's "stacked". She's going to "protect" Jamie and does so by following him even though he tells her specifically not to. Once even though he told her it was someone else's personal business she still followed him. Does this woman have a brain or a respectful bone in her body? He obviously knows what he's doing since he's survived for ten years he; and he didn't want her there for a reason. It follows that it would ruin his focus to have to worry about her. Between Faith and the rest of the group it's a wonder he made it out alive.
Jamie wants to be with Faith for sex, is totally obsessed and is lusting after her like a dog in heat from the get go. He's constantly focused on getting her into bed. Faith hides her thoughts from Jamie and doles out information a little at a time. She worked for the company and the woman that almost destroyed Jamie's life. Other than that he didn't know much about her. He doesn't know whether she plans to hurt or help him. But he ignores all of this because he wants her physically. This is not Jamie. He wouldn't take that kind of risk with his life and the lives of others. His common sense and his survival instincts would win out over hormones.
This solitary, secretive man suddenly has no problem with a large group of people witnessing the most personal aspects of his life, and interfering in aforementioned aspects. It's hard to believe that a man, who had lived alone for ten years and just occasionally even spoke to another person, would suddenly be comfortable hanging out in crowds, virtually overnight. By the end of the book the Jamie we knew through this entire series was gone. Jamie had morphed into a Visitation Stepford guy. He was no longer anyone special. Yes, he had physic powers but he looked the same, dressed the same and lived the same as any other guy in town. All the traits and qualities that made him Jamie were gone.
I was so disappointed I wanted to cry. It took me a week to get through this book as it didn't hold my interest, I disliked Faith, and Jamie turned into an idiot.
It's just as well this is the end of the series because I wouldn't spend my money on another book. The serious started with a bang and ended up a disappointing whimper.
