Description

For superhero Swiftwing, crime fighting isn’t her biggest battle. Nor is it having to meet the demanding whims of Hollywood screen goddess Gwen Knight as her mild-mannered assistant, Ava.

It’s doing all that, while tracking a giant alien bug, being asked to fake date her world-famous boss, and realizing that she might be coming down with a pesky case of feelings.

A fun, sweet, and sexy romance about the masks we all wear.

    :

    Be still my beating heart! From very early on I was utterly smitten with both Ava and Gwen, two of the most vulnerable but also mesmerising and intoxicating characters I’ve had the pleasure of spending the day with in a while.

    Gwendolyn Knight is a politically active but still very successful, Hollywood actress with a string of ex-husbands, a precocious son and a long-suffering assistant Ava Eisenberg, who really wants to be a screenwriter but is instead fetching the screen queen’s essential “almond macadamia milk latte with a smidge of maple syrup.” When she’s not procuring caffeinated beverages, or managing Gwen’s schedule Ava just so happens to spend her time fighting crime and saving the citizens of LA from one disaster after another in the guise of Swiftwing – everyone’s favourite supersonic superhero. As Swiftwing, not only is Ava able to help others but the mask that comes with the cape gives her the confidence to be a friend to Gwen in a way that Ava feels she never could be. As if dealing with all of that wasn’t enough, when Gwen needs a fake partner to help her beat her ex in a custody hearing and her male co-star backs out, who else is she going to turn to but the ever-reliable Eva?

    The best recommendation I can give this book is that I read it from start to finish in one day! On one level it’s a fantastic superhero adventure, then there’s the insane romantic and sexual tension running through the text but the real clincher is the beautiful writing and the way Alex K. Thorne negotiates the layers of meaning around identity and the literal and metaphorical masks we wear to hide our vulnerabilities from the outside world.

    Buy it and read it right now.

    I’m only on page 12 of the preview, as it appears the book is not yet available; I’m fairly hooked, all things considered. I will be purchasing this book when it will be released.

    From what I have read, which, granted, isn’t much, it’s well-written and nicely paced. The characters are likable and I’m already invested in finding out what happens to them. Of note, there appears to be great diversity in the cast, which is something I so rarely see and also deeply appreciate. I don’t know how the story will touch on various issues, but I feel that it will be unlikely to disappoint me.

    Cheers.

    I’ve read through the excerpt already and it was amazing. I like the pace and the characters. Cant wait to read it and just wish it was released already! I’m seriously jealous of the person who go the advanced copy – not because it was for free but because it was sent to them to read well before we get it.

    Oh well…. cant wait for this one

    That was a really fun read. Imagine a Superhero who is really shy and vulnerable in her feelings and a famous actress with lots of habits, which aren‘t very nice. Anyway Superhero Ava, who is working for actress Gwen while not saving the people in LA, is already in love with Gwen, although she thinks Gwen doesn‘t even notice her. Until Ava has to commit to a fake partnership with Gwen, which complicates everything. The describing of the characters, their issues, is very well done.
