The imagination put forth by Kevin Schewe is really something else, it's quite the tale of suspense and of history. The scenes put forth and created by this author force a sense of wonder on the reader, without giving away too many details or spoilers, I will admit that this book is as fun of a read as it is intriguing and informative. it's not often you learn something from a book as well as be so carefully entertained by the well-crafted display of authorship expressed by Schewe.
Aliens? Natural phenomenon? The lure of espionage and the thrill of the chase. So many ideas come to the shores of the mind as you read this book, I think I time-traveled into the future on the basis of having fun alone, I hadn't read a book that's as modern as it is entertaining and thrilling. This is the kind of book I would gift to a middle schooler or an avid reader, Schewe captures all the proper elements of a great work of fiction and utilizes certain literary ideas to weave together a story, not unlike the little rascals mixed with James bond. If you enjoy a series that continues to have more to offer I would look no other place than here. Its all and all a really fun read that at times is light-hearted and at other times it's really thought-provoking and full of intrigue. A mysterious thread is loosened from the spool of the imagination as scenes creatively expressed by Schewe easily play out in the mind. A read I would read again and again, a series we need more of!

“Bad Love Tigers” by excellent author Kevin L. Schewe, M.D., is a book you just HAVE to read if you are at all interested in science fiction and/or recent American history. It is just fantastic.
Without being a spoiler, I can say that this time travel, historical novel which reunites the Bad Love Gang is just a hoot, a fantastical journey into the past, and one of the most creative and original works of sci/fi that I have ever read, and I have read many.
I have no idea how Dr. Schewe came up with the whole vision of the Bad Love Gang and the White Hole Project, but I’m glad that he did. The very idea of such a group and such fantastical journeys is just out of most peoples’ abilities to imagine. I’m so glad that it is not out of his.
The idea of including suggested soundtracks in the book, to set the mood of each period in time that the group visited, as the chapters progressed, is just brilliant! I have never seen this method of reader-involvement used before. As one who lived through the times in which those songs were created and introduced to the public, it made the whole theme of the book EXTREMELY believable and almost spooky in its relevancy and accuracy. It is exactly as if the reader, especially a reader of my generation, actually traveled back with the Bad Love Gang, to the period suggested by the songs. Fantastic!
Please take the time to read this wonderful book. And then, read it again.

I was reading this insightful and encompassing book during a time of uncertainty in this world : the COVID 19 crisis. When ‘ normal life ‘ seemed to vanish in an instant, what was once considered routine became arduous and restricted ... incertitude crept in and began to take hold.
It reminded me that situations and assurances are ephemeral in a fragile world, where assumptions and fear may overshadow truth and logic, when mindfulness is important affirm stability and structure. I needed an escape; hope was on the horizon.
The recent “Bad Love Tigers“ book took me on a thrilling journey, Dr. Schewe masterfully intertwines the assurances of simpler times with the abstruse field of nuclear physics and time travel with all it’s assumptions, paradoxes and hypothetical possibilities ... it left me yearning for more.
As a practicing radiation oncologist for over 30 years, I’m familiar with the arcane world of nuclear interactions and their implications for past and future generations. Dr. Schewe takes these difficult concepts and makes them clear and accessible for the everyday reader. It’s an enthralling book that kept me spellbound and excited to turn the next page. Dr. Schewe also delivers an excellent historical panorama of past and current places that played and continue to represent some of our most cherished and impactful memories.
I relished the way foreboding situations were interlaced with the humorous realities of everyday life during our younger and ingenuous childhoods. The book is certain to entertain the young and the most die hard intellectual wishing to escape with the whim and humor only a master could execute. It’s a riveting story from a banner story-teller.

The Bad Love Gang is back with guns blazing to save the world. Their motto is “live dangerously, have fun – don’t die”, which sums up their crazy, time traveling adventures.
Amidst spies, assassins and aliens, the gang travels around the United States and China on their current mission. Bouncing from the 1970’s to the 1940’s BB, Browmar, Bucky, Waldo and Tator have the honor of meeting with President Roosevelt very shortly before his death. During this meeting they discuss the White Hole Project (time travel) and shock FDR by reintroducing him to Bucky, who was assumed dead the first time the White Hole Project was used.
With FDR paving the way for them and the rest of the Bad Love Gang as they travel to several key cities working undercover to complete their mission. One of the stops was personal for Bucky. He needs to see his parents as they were notified that he was missing in action and presumed dead. One of their destinations is the infamous Area 51 and a spot in China that observers claimed to see a space ship much like the one in the states. Arriving there in time to contact the aliens, will change the gang’s lives forever.
Schewe brings page turning action and drama from the first pages to the last. His characters are quirky and funny, cracking jokes amidst missions that will impact each of them as well as the world as we know it. It is fascinating to read the historical facts interwoven with the time traveling fictional characters. I was particularly interested in learning more about Allen Wright, a real-life hero that flew missions in China in the 1940’s. Yes, I did look him up and he was an amazing man. I love a work a fiction that takes this leap to further engage the reader and provide an opportunity to read more about the historical facts and figures mentioned along the way.

This book, like it’s prequel Bad Love Strikes, takes the phrase “getting into a book” to a whole new dimension as the author provides his readers with an excellent playlist to listen to, linked to the events in the book, wonderfully enhancing this exciting time travel adventure.
During the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the “White Hole Project” was conceived and built. This project is a time machine and it is housed in a top-secret deep underground bunker. Its location is adjacent to the K-25 project building, more commonly known as the Manhattan Project, the place where the world’s first nuclear bomb was built.
In Bad Love Strikes a teenage gang of the same name, discover the project and undergo a time travel mission to rescue Holocaust victims in 1944 Poland This story begins just after they have returned from their first adventure, and the gang is assembled at the White Hole Project to celebrate New Year’s Eve 1975. The music is playing, and none of them suspect that at the stroke of midnight the room would be plunged into darkness and they would be attacked by a Russian KGB agent intent on discovering the project’s secrets.
In conclusion: This new adventure of the Bad Love Gang is mind-blowing, the talented author takes his readers on an incredible rollercoaster of an adventure which intermingles true historical facts and incredible moments in the past, with conspiracy theories and science fiction. Not forgetting of course that throughout there’s a sprinkling of romance, heaps of comradeship, and that all-important patriotic duty, all carried out whilst maintaining the gang’s motto “Live dangerously, have
fun, don’t die!”

BB’s (Kevin Schafer, aka “Bubble Butt”) gripping narrative is a smooth
segue from his previous book, Bad Love Strikes.
Reading mimics interaction with the interspersed moments of
suspense, sarcasm, singing, laughing, and quotes, while reinforcing the theme of Patriotism, Faith, and Hope.
The Bad Love Gang utilizes their time travel and military experience as
they are challenged by spies, harrowing road trips, ambushes, and a
foray to China to investigate a UFO.
A multitude of genres explode in the chapters to entice the reader
including: WWII, aeronautics, history, music, science fiction, family and more.
The “Scent” of time travel combined with the author’s command of the subjects make a powerful and entertaining teaching tool that continues to ask the “Why?” of events in history, and provides a wild, engaging answer via a recounting of the Bad Love Gang’s exploits!
