Easily see this as a graphic novel on "Lois Lane scorned" angle. I read worse comic books with bigger potholes.

Light-hearted fun. A book about superheroes and the identities they hide. This book was an easy read, with off the wall superheroes and some fun villians to bring the evil. I enjoyed this story of fantasy and good vs. evil with romance mixed in.

A fun well-paced, good humoured and fun read. Entirely predictable which makes it great for those times where you need brain candy.

Just a fun read really. When I started reading, I was unsure whether Estep intended for the plot and character reveals to be so obvious, But as I got through book I accepted it all as tongue in cheek and just enjoyed the ride that was set out.

It's not my favourite of the Bigtime Series, I find Carmen Cole a little dull, but it's a nice introduction.

Fun on pages. A somewhat absurd concept that works. Don't expect to take this seriously: I laughed. Light-hearted, a dash of fun, superheros and villains, and that little black dress with warm champagne.
