Working the night shift at a five-star hotel in downtown Los Angeles, I get my fair share of weirdos. But none of them prepared me for the night I met Bolt. He saved my life.

Now he’s my super hero—the stud I’m yearning to thank in more creative ways than a damn kiss on the cheek. Too bad he’s actually Reece Richards, my full-on hunk of a real-life boss.

He’s got some commitment issues thanks to his evil ex and global empire—and from having to save the city from a maniac out to destroy everything he loves.

But there’s something that just may interfere with all those plans. My heart.

4 Star review of a Misadventures with a Super Hero by Angel Payne (Misadventures #3) Head of a hotel, Reece Richards was once a hard playing party boy who hooked up with the wrong woman. The results were that she experimented on him and turned his life upside down; now his life is filled with secrets and lies.  Emmalina Crist is the new girl at the hotel and when she meets Reece the attraction is instant; the air between them sizzles. Reece struggles with his attraction but once he realizes just how important she has become he is concerned that he won't be able to protect her. When Emma's life is threatened, he will have no choice but to become her super hero.  I have read Ms. Payne before and love her writing style. Although I enjoyed this book I must admit I had trouble getting into the story.  This was an interesting addition to the widely successful Misadventures series which is written by a variety of talented authors and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

Misadventures with a Super Hero by Angel Payne was a good read. Emma works at a high class hotel and doesn't expect that a chance encounter can change everything. One night she is saved by Bolt, a crime fighting super hero. I absolutely loved reading Reece and Emma's story. I can't wait to read more by Angel Payne.

Quirky, clever, sweet, sexy and emotionally thrilling romantic adventure with a reluctant super hero and his lady love that has no idea of her true value.... Overall a fun yet sensual read that leaves you wanting more. Reece Richards is a billionaire, party hoping playboy with out a care in the world beside his own pleasure (or so it seams) when he is captured by a group of mad scientist that change his life forever. Emmalina Crist is a new night shift employee at his family hotel she is here to make it on her own and escape the OC and her parents social life. She is fun, quirky, sweet, sassy and I just loved her inner thoughts, specifically about Angelique. Highly entertaining journey.

4 1/2 Star Review..... What a wonderful story! This series only gets better with every book and Misadventures with a Super Hero was HOT!!! I loved Reece and Emmalina; they had great chemistry and a quirky storyline that will have readers constantly laughing out load. Reece has some serious commitment issues to get past, but in the process of saving the world, Emmalina is not about to let crap like that get in the way of a possible HEA. I would remind readers that this series is labelled “High romance, low plot” so don’t be disappointed if there isn’t quite the amount of background you would usually expect from this talented array of authors. The stories are a lot of fun and a great way to let your mind escape into the inconsequential.

What can I say...I am not into Sci-Fi books but this book exceeded all my expectations! I felt as if Emma was my best friend. I could feel the attraction between her and Reece and knew it was meant to be! The relationship between them grew to a need that forced them together in a world were their love can be seen from the stars! Definitely would love to expand on the ever after! Great work

After enjoying the first two in the Misadventures series, I expected to love it ... but even though there was lots of steamy sex, there just wasn't enough true substance to the plot to make it worth my while.

I really enjoyed this Misadventure book. This book is different from anything else I have read recently. I would really like to see more into the future for "Bolt" and his "Velvet". I really would love to know if their children would be just as super! I can't wait for more Misadventures! #MSBB

'Misadventures with a Super Hero' by Angel Payne is Book Three in The "Misadventures" series. This is the story of Reece Richards 'Bolt and Emma Crist . Reece was a known playboy and being a heir to a massive hotel dynasty had the means to be one. But something happened and after that he hadn't been with anyone since. But that might change now that he has met Emma. Emma has just started working at the hotel that Reece's family owns and Reece runs it. Sparks are starting to fly between the two and they can't stop their growing feelings. This was a hot story line with a little drama thrown in for good measure! Loved it and a great addition to this series.

This was a book that is outside of what I normally read. I have read Angel's work before but it was completely different than this book. Now don't get me wrong, it was different in a good way. I started out questioning if I was even going to like this book since its different than my normal but it was very good and I am glad that I gave it a chance. Its nice sometimes to get out of your comfort zone and take a chance on something and it paid off this time. I truly enjoyed this book and it shows that Angel's talent can span outside of what I normally see from her. Not sure if she has written others like this book or not but for me the story line and characters were just as good as all the others that I have read by her. I enjoy super hero movies and I felt as if I was in one as I was reading this book. You had the romance, secrets, chemistry, suspense, and so much more. The man has some talent in the bedroom as well, let me tell you. YOWZA!!! I have enjoyed all the books I have read in this series and this book is no exception. I highly recommend it and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This is the third Misadventures book but they can all be read as standalone books. I loved this book so much. I love Super Heros so I couldn’t wait to read this book. Reece Richards is a play boy or at least was a play boy not so much these day. Emmalina works nights at a hotel in LA. She loves her job and what is allows her to do. She wants more from life. Everybody who works with her on nights think Reece is a little weird but not Emmalina. She is super attracted to him the first time she meets him. He feels to same way. But, Reese has a secret. He is Bolt the super hero. He has no idea what would happen to Emmalina if they were intimate. He has his concerns and doesn’t want to hurt her. Emmalina finds that she wants Reece more than any man before but she shouldn’t. After all he is her boss and she really needs this job. Reece has his own plans as well. I really liked this book and couldn’t put it down. I love both Reece and Emmalina’s characters. This put a different perspective on the whole super hero issue. It was more about them as a couple and what could happen to Emmalina versus Reece being a Super Hero. This book was sexy and exciting. I highly recommend it. I can’t wait to read more books in this series. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

Angel Payne dips her toe into the world of Super Heroes and the results are electric. Reece Richards's a wealthy, self-indulgent hotelier playboy. However in what could be considered a bit of Karmic Justice he becomes an unlikely Super Hero. His existence isn't all it's cracked up to be and his social life's definitely not what it once was. Emmalina Crist works in the hotel Reece heads up for his family. Emma was born into a wealthy family. She decided country club life and the one her parents planned wasn't for her. Emma chose, to her parents chagrin, to become a "career girl". Emmalina isn't the strongest Heroine when the book begins, however at the end she's "kick-butt-and-take-names" tough. The secondary characters don't carry much of an impact however they do provide spot-on comic relief at the perfect times. The story is definitely fun and filled with lightning hot sex. "Misadventures With a Super Hero" get off to a shaky start the number of unanswered questions is maddening. Not to mention Emma isn't a robust and fully fleshed out Heroine at the book's beginning. As far as Reese goes he's very well-developed and is cheeky, charming, and a sexual dynamo. The end of the book feels a bit of a rush to conclusion which isn't all that conclusive. However that open-endedness kind of works. Yet the meat of the book is complex; it's compelling with conflict that's against a "bad guy" as well emotional. This is an Angel Payne book so it goes without saying this verges on Erotica at times. In "Misadventures With a Super Hero" Angel Payne is a seductress with her words and descriptive sex scenes. She is the High Priestess of Sex. To read the entire review please visit: This novel was provided, voluntarily read, and honestly reviewed.

Reece is one mysterious man. Emma is fascinated by bolt. They have a instant connection. They can't help but be drawn to each other. Reece is keeping a really big secret. Will they be able to make everything work. Could not put this book down had to know what would happen.

Deadpool meets romance Angel Payne came up with an interesting premise for a sexy romance. Without giving up too much of the story, Reece a not so likable playboy when the story begins grows into a much more likable person once he gets his super powers. He changes and becomes a more well rounded person when Emma comes into his life. She too grows and benefits from their relationship. If you like serious sexy and some fun adventure this would be a great read to add to your TBR list. I received an advance reader copy from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

While everyone “feels” the weirdness of Reece, Emmalina just feels the currents his presence arouses in her body. They start their relationship fast, hot and heavy. So what if Reece insists his Velvet keep her eyes closed each time they come together. And isn’t it peculiar that that bruise on her bottom where he grabbed her feels like a burn? This was a fast, fun read full of action, laughter and electrifying super hero feats! I loved Emmalina and Reece together as their chemistry ignites the pages with sizzle. With great secondary characters as well as a villainess, it also included The Consortium which I hope will show up in additional stories. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and Waterhouse Press. Dual POV Safe Possible trigger

Reece Richards is an heir to a hotel empire. He’s the ultimate playboy taking advantage of his wealth and status until one day he’s kidnapped and experimented on. He finally escapes but not before his body is transformed with electrical super powers. Reece is hiding out in one of his families less trafficked hotels when he meets the new employee, Emmalina Crist. To say their meeting is electrifying is an understatement. Boy, the things Reece can do with his super power is smokin! I’m a sucker for a super hero story. I like reading and watching people kick butt! There’s a lot of chemistry, a lot of butt kicking and the usual struggle of doing the right thing when Reece’s kidnappers track him down. This was a unique and fun story. ARC provided by NetGalley.

**Advanced copy provided by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review** Misadventures with a Super Hero is the third book in the "Misadventures series" and while it is part of a series, it can standalone. Emmalina Crist is a young woman who is a new employee at a Richards Resort Hotel in the reservations department. She is trying to make something of herself by establishing her career and is currently working the night shift to accomplish that. Reece Richards, is not only Emma's boss at the hotel, but he also is a partying playboy who has been a disappointment to his family. Not to mention he is the man that Emma is attracted to like a moth to a flame the first time she lays eyes on him. When Emma has to deliver nightly reports to Reece's penthouse, the chemistry and connection just can't be stopped. It's hot, it's lustful and it's unstoppable. While Emma wants to protect herself and her job, there is no doubt she's drawn to this man more than any other before. Will the secret that he is harboring be the end of them before they really get going? This book took quite a long time for me to get into and I think that is because this isn't the type of book that I would generally go for. It was out of my "comfort zone" and I wanted to give it a shot because of that. The book is good, but it just wasn't something I really enjoyed. I'm looking forward to moving on to the next book in the Misadventures series!

Favorite Quotes: I need to know every damn detail about this. I’m a caveman who’s just discovered fire but now needs the instruction book for the blowtorch. Some dreams are just better than others. But this one’s a freaking Big Mac of better. With extra cheese and secret sauce. Twelve months of imposed celibacy and I’ve really gone as stupid as a teenage virgin. There’s no instruction manual for this. Isn’t there supposed to be an instruction manual somewhere? Congratulations! You’re a super hero! Quick and easy FAQs, including how to talk to your doctor, your dry cleaner, and your girlfriend. They’re cold, they’re methodical, and they’re ruthless— and I’m the loose thread in their ugly orange sweater. My Review: I am not sure how to classify this book as it was an interesting hybrid of genres… it was full of clever humor and snark, loaded with erotic sensual scenes, and had a sweet love story as well as a cute fantasy/Sci-Fi superhero crime-fighter base. Taken in totality, it was an entertaining tale that had me alternating between smirking, sighing, gasping, and searching out cool beverages to rehydrate. Written from my favorite dual POV, the storyline was amusing, creative, steamy, and intriguing. I enjoyed Ms. Payne’s humorous descriptions as well as the banter and wit in her characters’ inner musings, exchanges, and quips. I seldom dabble in the fantasy or Sci-Fi genres, but I enjoyed the refreshing change of pace as well as Ms. Payne’s creativity in the development of her plotline and characters, especially the main character of Reece. Reece had been a wealthy party boy/player and a paparazzi favorite who was known as “The Heir with the Hair” and “The Billionaire with the Bulge.” Snort. After being misled by one of his conquests, Reece found he had been turned into a research lab rat “of human DNA improvement through electronic enhancement.” Reece was no longer just hot stuff, he was supercharged hot stuff as he could shoot electrical currents from his fingers – how cool is that? He was circling the drain in misery though and taking chances without care until his attention landed on the captivating, clever, and feisty Emmalina, who jump-started his heart and got the juices flowing.
