A kiss.
And now, a manhunt.

Aidan uses his superpower to stabilize minds at the Hollyreed Specialist Hospital. Ulani uses hers to chase rats on rooftops. Until she’s caught and deposited in Aidan’s care.

Heroes by Christine Zolendz:

Breaking Through by D. Nichole King:
Two years after her brother Nate died during a Navy operation, aquator Nautia Olson’s nightmares began, and her ability to manipulate water became erratic. Anger, fear, joy, desire—they all trigger disaster.
Now, the Navy wants her for a top-secret mission, but Captain Riley Barton has his reservations. He’s read her file. He knows the damage she’s capable of, and yet—
If he can harness her ability—break through her walls—
She’ll be unstoppable.

Villain by Cheryl McIntyre:
How can you tell a hero from a villain?
If you’re Ember Willis and the villain is Lanely Frost, you can’t.
How can you tell a superhero from a delusional young woman?
If you’re Lanely Frost and the woman is Ember Willis, you don’t care.
For both, finding the balance between right and wrong and love and lust are not the only battles they’ll face.

Feature Review Icon

I was excited about this book for two reasons…several of my favorite authors were participating and my recent addiction to the TV shows Arrow and The Flash had me searching for some good Superhero romance and guess what??? I FOUND IT.  This book delivers great stories, strong heroines, hot heroes and lots of action.  And the stories are fabulously diverse…some are straight up Superheroes with costumes and special powers, some are interesting variations on superpowers you may or may not have seen before, some border on supernatural and some are just straight up everyday heroes.  These stories also run the gamut from completed novellas to cliff hangers (but don’t worry… all of the cliffhangers will be resolved when the authors released them as completed stories after the Anthology’s sales period is complete).

Every story here is great, there wasn’t one that I didn’t enjoy…and of course everyone will have their own favorites.  What shocked me was how easily I was sucked into each and every story,  I’ve been making teasers all week because I can’t stop thinking about these characters.  As always with romance novels, the heroes are swoon-worthy but I was especially excited by the female characters.  There are some bad a$$ chicks in here (no I’m not talking about the authors although they are pretty bad a$$ too.)  I’m talking about chicks that catch bad guys, solve mysteries, fight crime and help the less fortunate…you know Superheroes.

And lets not forget that thanks to these wonderful authors, not only are you getting an amazing book, but all of their income from the book is going to the Wounded Warrior Foundation to help actual real life heroes!! It really doesn’t get any better than that.  Visit Amazon and GET THIS BOOK.

An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
