Brooke Armstrong is a nerd with her own computer store, but when she witnesses a murder she ends up with two hunky bodyguards. Gavin Kirkwood and Riley Landon have lusted after Brooke since they moved to Pleasure, Montana, but they’ve been a bit busy settling in to ask her out. When Brooke finds out she’s the center of these two hot guys’ fanatasies she doesn’t understand why they want her overweight nerdy self. The guys just need to convince her they want her all while keeping her safe from a murderer. Multitasking is their middle name.
The characters are the best part of this story. They each have their good and bad points and they’re fairly believable. However, the plot is a long stretch of the imagination and for professionals the guys are incredibly awful at protection. I wouldn’t trust them to watch my plants after seeing them in action in this book. The writing is clunky, the dialogue is stilted and the BDSM is so-so. The sex scenes themselves aren’t bad though. All-in-all this story is just meh. I have no interest in reading the rest of the series.

Kang the Conqueror has traveled from the future to beg the Avengers to go to the future and stop their children from screwing up Earth. As in big time capital A-pocalypse, screw it up. The Avengers are all like, what?! Kids?! What kids?! Anyway, the timeline is all jacked up and things from the past are coming forward and destroying shit in the present timeline. So, the Avengers Assemble, a small team, and go to the future to smack the shit out of their kids while the rest of them stay back to handle timeline clean up duty. But surprise! No, I’m not saying what the surprise is. You gotta read it to see.
Anyway, I’m not a fan of time travel. It hurts my head. Also, this is the 1st Avenger graphic novel I’ve ever read, so I’m a little out of the loop on bad guys both past and present. A bit lost there. Other than that, I love the dialogue and the artwork is fantastic. I wouldn’t be averse to picking up more of this series.

Ok, so I’ve never seen the movie and I’ve never read any of the comics. Now, I’ve watched other Marvel movies, so I have an idea who Thanos is and the gems. But everything else is new to me. I don’t know who all the players are like Nebula, Gamora, Tivan and someone named Ronan, but I’m sure it’ll come together eventually. I only enjoyed 3 of the 7 offerings in this volume. That includes story and artwork.
For Prelude 1 & 2 and the last one, Dangerous Prey, I give 5’s to story and artwork. I love the artwork so much! It’s gorgeous! I can’t stand the artwork for the middle stories (Beware the Blood Brothers, The Power of Warlock, Rocket Raccoon and the Groot one) and the plots are meh. I can’t even tell what the actual titles are because there’s stuff written everywhere. They’re confusing and the artwork is too garish, simplistic, busy and comic-booky. Blerg.
