Review Of Super Hot(Superlovin' #3) by Vivi Andrews 4*
BLURB: 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

My Review:Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley I haven't read the previous two books but that didn't spoil my enjoyment of this one. I loved Superhero comic books as a child and now Vivi has given me an adult Superhero book to read. It comes complete with all the action and intrigue I loved in the comics but with the addition of a really super hot romance Hero and his equally intriguing Heroine.

Review Of Jaran (Jaran #1) by Kate Elliott 4*
BLURB: The first book in Kate Elliott's acclaimed Jaran series-the groundbreaking story of a young woman coming of age on an alien planet...and her effect on the human race's survival.
My Review:Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley I was expecting a good book and that's what I got. An intriguing, engaging and believable science fiction story that was also a romance and a commentary on people, politics and social behaviour. I kept thinking 'I know what's going to happen now' only to be completely surprised at the turns the story took. It was engrossing and I really liked it.
