The Early Years #1 - My first book by this author and it's a kick. Michael makes Brooke Shield's and Bettye Davis' look like normal, bible study children. The story is well written but with some vulgar language and deviant sex scenes. The story moves at a fast pace and the reader is intrigued with what unfolds. I wouldn't want to read more books like this, but I will finish the five books of this series. Interesting prologue. Minor editing needed.
The Lost Days #2 - The pain and gain and loss that come from the actions performed in The Early Years come to head in this book. Michael for all his intelligence is still a little boy that didn't cover all the bases in his plans. His mother wasn't at her best, either. The story is well written and intriguing. The characters continue to grow and the plot twists with surprises not expected. Interesting prologue. Minor editing needed.
The In-Between Years #3 - Another interesting and intriguing story. The characters are steady growing and still with interesting dialog. The plot manages to keep the reader interested until the last page. Interesting prologue. Minor editing needed.
The Dispensable Wife #5 - I had a few days between the first four books and this one. I didn't care to much for the beginning of the book, several chapters of wasted words and repetition. The reader is now seeing his and her sides of the story and it takes a while for the book to become interesting. I didn't care for the last two or three chapters; I didn't find them interesting or flowing. Interesting prologue. Minor editing needed.
I found Wife on AXP and volunteered to review it, since I already owned the other four books.
The Boy Nobody Loved - The prequel, which I read after I read the first five books of the Misfit series. It's a good choice to read first since it lays the foundation of Michael's beginning years and what he lived through. The story is well written and intriguing. The characters are developing and their dialog is realistic.
Poor Dimitri has a sharper eye for women than Michael, and sees the trouble coming with Michael's attraction to AnnaSophie.
Money and the trappings of success apparently really can't make up for love or its lack.
AnnaSophie unfortunately also strikes me as a manipulative female who also isn't worthy of his obsession, and seems very likely to disappoint.
So, zero credibility.
