Good
Misadventures with a Super Hero - Angel Payne

This was a good book about someone who didn’t toons to be a superhero but ended up becoming one. Reece Richards the very rich owner of the hotel and “bolt” tried to stay away from everyone but ended up meeting his sole mate in Emmalina Crist. The story was good but I just couldn’t get into it. I loved the romance and love story but am not a fan of the science part of it. I am a fan of Angel Payne and will still wait for other releases from this author. This is also a part of a series of other standalone books that I will be reading.

Book Review For: 'Misadventures with a Super Hero' by Angel Payne
Misadventures with a Super Hero - Angel Payne

'Misadventures with a Super Hero' by Angel Payne is Book Three in The "Misadventures" series. This is the story of Reece Richards 'Bolt and Emma Crist .
Reece was a known playboy and being a heir to a massive hotel dynasty had the means to be one. But something happened and after that he hadn't been with anyone since. But that might change now that he has met Emma. Emma has just started working at the hotel that Reece's family owns and Reece runs it. Sparks are starting to fly between the two and they can't stop their growing feelings.
This was a hot story line with a little drama thrown in for good measure!
Loved it and a great addition to this series.

Disappointed
Misadventures with a Super Hero - Angel Payne

I was excited about this third standalone in the Misadventures series. A steamy read about a sexy super hero - what's not to love? Unfortunately, my excitement didn't last long. The first chapter was intriguing and I was curious, but that curiosity quickly waned as I spent the next several chapters trying to connect to the characters. I actually laid this one aside and picked it back up several times, working my way through a little at a time. I guess that should've been the red flag that this one just wasn't for me, but I forged ahead and I did manage to finish. The story does get better toward the end, but it just didn't grab me the way it should have. There is plenty of steam, and even some humor, and super hero action to keep things moving, but the characters just lacked that certain something that makes a reader want to see how their story plays out.

Splinterpoint by Regina St. Claire
Splinterpoint - Regina St. Claire

This book is C-wA_A-a-Z-YY!

Feels like Times Square, honestly :D 

 

~~~

The sheer amount of cultural references is mind-boggling.
Praetor Judy made it into this book :)

 

 

 

And I kept comparing Kol'daar to Cass (no actual mention of Supernatural, darn it!) - a bad-ass when he wants to be, but cute and adorable and kind and sometimes clueless. 

 

 

Metaaaaaahlll!!!



Yes, Ozzy made it, too! And the Dove! 



And, damn, talking about Mr. Crowley on that album!



Anyway, the story was heading for full 11 stars when things started going south around the last 20%, or after the Final Battle to be precise. Maybe during it's final half-hour, too. That's when the author quit crazy and spontaneous, turned on a drone and started explaining and over-explaining and then ex-plai-ning-to-death and then some just to drive the final nail in. 

After the report filing at the gingerbread castle I skimmed through the rest of the pages. The story got sappy and it dragged out for more than it had to. 

In the end I was left feeling a bit unbalanced. The badassery turned to sap, the unpredictable and unexplained turned into dissecting everything under a microscope. I really didn't care about the Song or Music Magic or how Nunzio's disability worked.

 

 

ALSO - The Burrito Incident. Someone specifically targeted Nunzio. Why? Never explained.

So, I am cutting 6.5 stars off for all the un- and over-explained instances and giving this book 4.5 stars.

 

Recommended :D

Flat characters and no logic
DC Super Hero Girls FCBD 2017 Special Edition (2017-) #1 - Shea Fontana,Monica Kubina,Yancey Labat

Why are Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy in a superhero school?  I don't know.   Some villains are still villains and some aren't.   Harley Quinn in particular seems an... odd choice.  Popular, yes, but it just seems odd to include her, especially since they defang her completely.   She's the class clown, smart, but doesn't seem to have a mean bone in her body.   Poison Ivy will do anything to protect her plants, but doesn't seem to hate humanity at all. 

 

Why?

 

And the characters all seem flat, and furthermore nothing like they really are.   This is a cute story and some of the things it teaches - like friendship and being honest is good - are told in a fun way.   I think it's a pretty good thing for younger kids, but it's just annoying that they betray the characterizations like this.   They might as well have used original characters at this point - although that wouldn't have the name recognition.   That gets more children reading this, which has good lessons for children, so it serves its purpose - and also seems like a grab for cash with all the dolls and stuff that really only teach kids about buying things.  

 

So, eh, conflicted, so two and a half stars.
