Jenny Ray is a kick ass superhero with a sex appeal to kill for, but add her unique ability to take on the powers of others.....and she can be downright scary. When a collar for the local Vegas police takes her into the middle of the most infamous hero organization in the country, The Manhattan 10, things go very wrong when she takes the powers of their leader ThinkTank, and can't give them back. The other problem is that they seem to be extremely attracted to each other and she can't get enough of him, even if she doesn't want to get attached. They go on some crazy rides together and uncover a twisted plot that is bigger than anybody saw coming.
Those twists and turns are what I loved about this book. As much as you felt the tangibility of their attraction, it was clear that there was a possibility that they would not end up together. The things that they go through are surprising and adventurous and ultimately end up sealing their fate connected. There was enough sexy to satisfy the romance side, but enough action to satisfy that need for a fast paced plot. Jenny is a strong, independent and sexy women, but is still humble enough for her to be someone most women would respect. That's a tough balance to achieve, especially in a world that has superheroes.
That story line, however, I wanted to be explored further. I wanted to know why people had powers, how they go them, why everybody in the world seems to know about them. To be quite honest, I just wanted background. Background on heroes in general and also the heroes we met in the story. Included in that need for information are The Manhattan 10. We really didn't get to know the organization or the other characters in the story. I did love the premise of what was going on, just really was left wanting more. Not a bad thing to happen in story, however, and I really loved the writing, the sass and the romance!
