Eight bestselling New Adult romance authors have come together to bring you seven stories about superheroes and what it takes to win their hearts. From the skies, to the cities, to the ocean, our superheroes face death, fight villains, conquer evil and—

Find love.

The world is full of heroes. Every-day men and women who risk their lives for the sake of others—for life, liberty, freedom, and justice. Often these men and women are wounded—physically or mentally—in the line of duty. Therefore, we have created this anthology with the sole purpose of benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project.

Because heroes should never be forgotten.

If he can harness her ability—break through her walls—
She’ll be unstoppable.

** ARC provided by Laura Thalassa for an honest review.

This anthology was totally bad ass! 7 awesome stories to enjoy without reserve!
I’ve read all the stories, and I loved them all, I couldn’t pick a favorite. This reading was so fluid, taking into places, where superhero and villains, whenever they are, with superpowers, or not, risking their lives, fight, conquers, win but find love in the way.
I was captivated and couldn’t put it down. I was so drawn into each stories, so willing to read what the next author would get us into, what’s going to happen. I wasn’t disappointed at all!
Reaping Angels by Laura Thalassa:

Reaping Angels teaserWhat happened when a villain on a mission falls for a superhero?
Some kidnapping and stalking, a manhunt a lot of sexual tension and a hell of chemistry!A story with no time out, catchy and punchy.
I have to admit, I was sold from the first story, about Angel (the superhero) and X (the villain), two opposites, mortal enemies. Her touch can heal, his can bruise and makes people die.
I really loved the mood, it was quirky, funny, with a lot of action and some great characters.The author created a great atmosphere here.
Reading how the two of them connected, and that’s the world isn’t just black and white, and that sometimes lines are blurred when it comes to love.
Cat Love by Sunniva Dee:

Falling for Kitten teaser Cat LoveThis is the story a woman (Ulani) who can shift into a cat and a very emphatic man (Aidan), who’s ability is to stabilize minds in a Hospital , decided to unite their powers to resolve the dispeareance of patients.
When it comes to Sunniva Dee, you know for sure that you’re gonna be into a sexy, erotic and so sensual story!
There’s some part of mystery here, from the moment when Ulani, is caught and deposited in Aidan’s care, to the moment where patients were missing.
Once again, two opposites; Ulani is struggling with her ability to shift, directed with her feline side, primal, and so intruiguing to Aidan; who is unlike her, always in control.
His obsession for her grows throughout the story, with an intense level of sexual tension.
The mystery isn’t solved completely and there is a cliffhanger! So stay tuned!

Gypsy Love by Angela McPherson & Lynn Vroman:

Gypsy Love teaserThis story was just mind-blowing, so romantic and warmed my heart!
A beautiful love story tale, between Mia and Adrian, reunited by a Gypsy curse. Trust me, get ready for a incredible love defying time and space.
The only way to Mia to be with the man she loves (Aidan) is in her dreams, because our hero here was cursed 200 years ago for being a little bit too volatile.
Since all this time, he lived to haunt the family of the one who put him into this misery, with his routine, to seek revenge on them about the curse. One day, he was taken aback by Mia’s beauty, and her ability to sense him, when no one does.
But to be together, « One love must end for another to begin », how she curse could be broken?
The path to their uncertain future is full of obstacles, be prepared to get emotional here, the story was so surprising, oh la la THE FEELS! And a cliffhanger!

The Only Difference by Magan Vernon:

The Only Difference teaserI was so swooning over Leonel, a guy so endearing and touching, who tried to save a girl Betsy, one night from one of his Frat brothers.
This one was so sweet, full of good vibes. Leonel, was so different from his frat brothers, a little shy with the girls, reading comics, trying to be the good guy, but wasn’t noticed by the girls. Oh my, I really loved him, especially when he became to stand against some of his brothers, and fight for doing the right thing! He’s definitely a keeper!
Betsy has her reputation, and she knows that she had some leverage on him, that he was attracted to her. This girl was so lost and making some bad decisions.
When Leonel came to her rescue several times, she tried to push him away, but this sweet and so caring guy was going to get her. Hopefully nice guys can get the beautiful girl!

Heroes by Christine Zolendz:

Heroes teaserThe story of Kelly Black and Alexander Master was electrifying, so sensual with a lot of action!
I was so captivated by the interaction between these two, where sparks ignited everywhere.
I was caught by surprise here and wasn’t expecting this plot!
Kelly is the assistant of Alexander, who leads the entire Biology Department. She had a crush on this guy, physically but definitely impressed by his career.
Oh my, Alexander, was such a mysterious, intriguing and so mesmerizing man. Damn, the way he looks at Kelly was so hot and intense. Just WOW!
They can’t deny their attraction, like magnets, but our « hero » here is not what he seemed to be!Let’s just say that after these revelations about him and Kelly’s parents, I was still amazed by the upcoming events, in a good way!
So, mix a witty and beautiful woman, a mysterious, handsome and too intense guy, a shitty down with a lot of villains, some heroes, superpowers and we’re all set!

Breaking Through by D. Nichole King:

Breaking Through teaserWhat a great story again! This story will kick your ass!
A young girl, Nautia, has the ability to manipulate water was a student in a special school, where people with superpowers were trained to be recruited as intel. Her twin brother died on a mission and since that moment, she blocked out her abilities, and was like a bomb ready to explode at any moment.
She was hired on a special operation with some other students, under the command of Captain Riley Barton.
I have a spot for guys with a uniform, and this one was no exception! He was the epitome of the hero, he wanted to save people. This mission was very risky and having Nautia, totally unstable could put everyone in danger. At first, he wanted to break her walls to save this mission, but it became so much more, he was falling for her, by this this girl so tough and vulnerable at the same time, prisoner of her feelings .
But she had to control her power, and Riley was the key to it but also about her brother’s death.
This story was so powerful, a wave of emotions who’s gonna challenge you! Cliffhanger again, so you’ll have to be patient! I’m sure it’s gonna be worth the wait!

Villain by Cheryl McIntyre:

Villain teaserI was hooked by this one! What is limit of a hero, or a villain? How can you define them?
Ember Willis and Lanely Frost, two opposites, with original names, were not destined to meet … in person.
Both were chatting for more than a year and never meet, as Pyro and Frosty the Heartless, a place where they bared their souls and shared their secrets. Like talking to someone behind a computer was so much easier to someone you knew. Their banter was really funny, sassy and so flirty!
They both have some abilities of their own, some secrets under their sleeve.
A chance meeting brings them together, and it was like they clicked. Ember was always the girl in control and she wanted to release the naughty side, not being the good girl. Lanely, such a bad boy; confident and devastatingly handsome, struggling with his alter ego, seeking revenge.
They didn’t know who they really were and for the first time, Lanely was connected to someone, and he didn’t want to let her slipped through his fingers.
It was very interesting to see how love could change Lanely, from the villain he was, but he was on a mission. The line between right and wrong, and heroes and villains was blurred.
Thanks, there was no cliffhanger and a HEA!

Of course, this anthology deserved more than 5 stars! These authors rocked the boat for a good cause. I’m telling you it was so worth the read, through stories that will make you smile, swoon, experience the lives of these heroes and villains, beneath the cape!
For the first time, I wasn’t bothered by the cliffhangers, that’s means a lot to me!
Get ready for some bad ass action! High five ladies!
