Series: Superlovin Series Book #3 (novella)
Author: Vivi Andrews
Genre: Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Blurb: He’s on fire for her… literally.
Superhero research scientist Dr. Eric Eisenmann always secretly wanted to be super himself, until he was abducted, experimented on, and woke up pyrokinetic—the least stable of all the super abilities. Suddenly he’s lighting everything around him on fire whenever his emotions get the better of him and desperate to turn his super powers off. Unfortunately, Eisenmann’s only hope for a cure lies with a woman who wants nothing to do with him—and fires up the very emotions he needs to keep in check. As the only non-super daughter in a superhero dynasty, Tandy Nightwing has been poked and prodded for years in an attempt to find the cause behind her defect. Now that she’s finally found a way to be happy with her normalcy, the last thing she wants is to subject herself to another super scientist’s tests—but she can no more resist Eisenmann’s plea for help than she can resist the good doctor himself. Deep in his underground lab, Eisenmann tries to maintain rigid control of his feelings, but Tandy is his personal kryptonite, constantly testing his restraint. Powerless or not, she just might be the one woman brave enough to stand close to his fire—provided they both survive when their experiments unleash a passion that burns hotter than sin.
Thoughts: After reading the previous novel Super Bad, I was quick to pick up the next in the series Super Hot. After all, not many books of the romance variety feature a group of superheroes! It makes for a nice change from the normal fare for this genre. And while I did like this book, it wasn’t quite as good as the prior one for me.
If you are already familiar with the series, you know Eisenmann – and you are definitely want to find out what is happening with him after the way the second book ended. However, I was a bit disappointed in Tandy. She’s not as familiar to us and at first she comes across as rather cold. And with this only being a novella, and therefore relatively short, I found it hard to really connect with her character. Not to mention the fact that for the most part both her and Eisenmann are trying to keep their feelings for each other under wraps (each for their own reasons). And perhaps they did too good of a job, because I just wasn’t as invested in this installment as I was for the previous one. I kind of wish we either had more time to get to know her better, or for her to have made a few appearances in prior books or something.
Will this keep me from going on to read Super Trouble whenever it releases? Of course not. Vivi Andrews is a wonderful author and so far I have yet to read anything from her that I have been unhappy with. And I still plan on going back and reading book one in the series Super Lovin’. But my overall opinion – a good book that was a must read simply because you just had to find out what happened to Eisenmann. But I enjoyed Super Bad more.
