Buy Twice as Hot

Belle Jamison is finally starting to feel like a normal girl again. Her job as a paranormal investigator is going well, she's learned to control her supernatural abilities (mostly) and she's just gotten engaged to Rome Masters, the ultra-sexy operative who once tried to neutralize her!

But planning a wedding is never easy, especially when the bride keeps accidentally torching her dress, the groom returns from a dangerous mission with selective memory loss and the man responsible now wants Belle for himself. With Rome's ex determined to win him back and a new band of supervillains on the horizon, it will take all Belle's powers—plus a little help from her trusty empath sidekick—to save the day, salvage the wedding and prove that true love really does conquer all.

What I thought:

Stellar follow up! I loved this book! I was on pins and needles through this entire novel, straight up until the end. Gena Showalter has penned many a great novel, and this is no exception.

The story was fantastic. In the notes in the book, Gena Showalter mentioned the only thing she didn't have time to work into the first novel was if Belle really was the right one for Rome according to Lexis vision. It was a brilliant plot. I love Belle. I love just about everything about her. She's brave, loyal, caring and one badass superhero. She's also vulnerable. Since Rome had some memories stolen, we do get to see a bit of her vulnerable side.

I'm a bit saddened at the prospect that this might be it. But on Gena Showalter's site, she did say that she doesn't have anything in the works but not to count Belle out for sure. I'm hoping she doesn't either. I loved the characters and would love more in this series. We were introduced to a few more very interesting characters I would love to get to know better. I think the main character is brilliant. She's a bit flaky but knows when to put the gloves on.

My Rating:
