SUPER ZERO by Rhonda Stapleton

I have to admit, I'm kind of totally in love with this book. It's a treat of a book that kept me hooked from page one. It reminded me of a cross between THE INCREDIBLES and JANET EVANOVICH, and featured a main character who was fun and sympathetic and witty and just kind of all-around awesome.

SUPER ZERO by Rhonda Stapleton

Aside from the main character, let's talk about the romance. In SUPER ZERO, it sizzled. The male lead, Vigilante, is described in a way which will make every single reader want to become his sidekick (and more). Man, I want to be part of this super hero world. Rhonda Stapleton blends the world of superheros in with our society in a way that is believable yet exciting.

Also, I have to point out, this is an adult book, not a young adult. It's noteworthy because (1) I mostly read young adult, and (2) Rhonda Stapleton has published young adults novels also including STUPID CUPID (Simon Pulse, December 2009).

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for older teens and adults who love action, adventure, and romance!

And the best part is that it's a $2.99 ebook and totally worth every bit of it and more!

Working for superheroes isn't all it's cracked up to be...

When Jenna’s superhero boss The Machine gives her the opportunity to safeguard the changing crystal (a jewel that grants, changes or removes superpowers) she jumps at the chance, eager to do this so-called "cake" job and earn street cred with the Midwest League of Superheroes. To help her mission, the League assigns her a partner, the mysterious and super-sexy Vigilante. Too bad he's also super-grouchy--what a tragic waste of hotness.

Soon, Jenna learns the threat to the changing crystal is all too real, and her list of trustworthy people grows shorter by the minute. But when she discovers something even more sinister afoot, involving Vigilante's sexy arch nemesis Dementrix, it'll take all her skills to keep the mad villainess from executing her plan to unmask and decommission the world's superheroes...especially when Jenna accidentally becomes one herself.
