This is one diva with killer moves…Belle Fabian has worked her toes to the bone to become an internationally renowned ballerina. When the curtains rise on her career-making performance of Giselle, she brings down the house—literally.Mid-dance, she manifests a superpower that nearly destroys the Metropolitan Opera House, wiping out a line of chorus girls and sending the audience dashing for the exits. As she flees the theater, she assumes the worst. Her hard-won career is over.The Manhattan Ten’s leader is playing hooky with his new lady, so it falls to Red Ruin to round up the super-powered danseur. It’s just one small, bird-boned woman hiding in a convenience store. How hard could it be?Their first encounter generates sparks that border nuclear and their chemistry sends Belle’s powers into overdrive, but their perfect storm of passion is marred by her suspicion that Ruin is holding back. That secret that could turn the sweet burn of Ruin’s lightning into a permanent scar on her heart.
Lola Dodge does it again! I can't get enough of these superhero romances and I truly wonder WHY ARE THERE NOT MORE?! But please excuse the yelling of my inner superhero geek. Ahem. Belle is an amazing leading lady. I greatly admired her focus and dedication to her craft and was shattered when she learned her powers would greatly hinder her dancing career. Yet despite the massive setback, Belle threw herself into mastering her new kinetic power. I was practically pumping my fist yelling "Get it girl!" Her struggle with her power and future was beautifully written and gave my heart strings a good yank.
Red Ruin/Ryan was a bundle of fun as the charismatic clown but his hidden character trait as insecure leader was gold. He was so humble about his leadership skills and I love that Dodge gave him that extra side. His relationship with Belle is all sparks and explosions, literally, which makes for some amusing sexy scenes. It is still a novella which is bad because it's such a short time to spend with such wonderful characters. The Manhattan Ten series is on fire and I can't wait to see where Dodge wants to take us next! (Please full length novels, please, please, please.)
A HUGE thank you to the wonderful Lola Dodge for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.
