Working the night shift at a five-star hotel in downtown Los Angeles, I get my fair share of weirdos. But none of them prepared me for the night I met Bolt. He saved my life.

Now, he’s my superhero, the hunk I’m yearning to thank in more creative ways than a damn kiss on the cheek. Too bad he’s actually Reece Richards, my full-on nerd of a real-life boss.

He’s got some commitment issues thanks to his evil ex and global empire and from having to save the city from a maniac out to destroy everything he loves.

But there’s something that just may interfere with all those plans. My heart.


My Rating:



Favorite Quotes:


I need to know every damn detail about this. I’m a caveman who’s just discovered fire but now needs the instruction book for the blowtorch.


Some dreams are just better than others. But this one’s a freaking Big Mac of better. With extra cheese and secret sauce.


Twelve months of imposed celibacy and I’ve really gone as stupid as a teenage virgin.


There’s no instruction manual for this. Isn’t there supposed to be an instruction manual somewhere? Congratulations! You’re a super hero! Quick and easy FAQs, including how to talk to your doctor, your dry cleaner, and your girlfriend.


They’re cold, they’re methodical, and they’re ruthless— and I’m the loose thread in their ugly orange sweater.


My Review:


I am not sure how to classify this book as it was an interesting hybrid of genres… it was full of clever humor and snark, loaded with erotic sensual scenes, and had a sweet love story as well as a cute fantasy/Sci-Fi superhero crime-fighter base.   Taken in totality, it was an entertaining tale that had me alternating between smirking, sighing, gasping, and searching out cool beverages to rehydrate. Written from my favorite dual POV, the storyline was amusing, creative, steamy, and intriguing.

I enjoyed Ms. Payne’s humorous descriptions as well as the banter and wit in her characters’ inner musings, exchanges, and quips. I seldom dabble in the fantasy or Sci-Fi genres, but I enjoyed the refreshing change of pace as well as Ms. Payne’s creativity in the development of her plotline and characters, especially the main character of Reece. Reece had been a wealthy party boy/player and a paparazzi favorite who was known as “The Heir with the Hair” and “The Billionaire with the Bulge.” Snort. After being misled by one of his conquests, Reece found he had been turned into a research lab rat “of human DNA improvement through electronic enhancement.” Reece was no longer just hot stuff, he was supercharged hot stuff as he could shoot electrical currents from his fingers – how cool is that? He was circling the drain in misery though and taking chances without care until his attention landed on the captivating, clever, and feisty Emmalina, who jump-started his heart and got the juices flowing.
