Andrew is a little overwhelmed, between grad school, his bookstore job, crazy friends, and a roommate slowly turning criminal.

This was quite the different read and hard to categorize. As the blurb states, there is a little bit of everything thrown in, but it’s based around the zippy character sketches the author sets up. It reminds me of a “Friends” episode in that there are a lot of attractive people talking, hanging out at coffee shops and bars and such, but nothing much really happens. At least not for a long time. This is not so much a romance as it is about quirky characters acting… quirky. So the charm is depende
3.5 (ish)

Pretty decent story, though the superhero angle just felt a bit odd. (view spoiler) But seeing as how I got this book for free, I can't really complain. Don't know if I'll read it again, but I would say if you got it laying around to give it a go.

The cover is a bit off-putting, though.
This book is really funny, but during the whole read, I just felt like the author wasn't really an experienced writer.
The banter between the main characters was funny, but also a little bit unrealistic? (people don't talk like that to each other, I think) I got lost among all the characters and what relationships they had with each other...
The weirdest part was the fantasy element. Not that it was bad, per se, but it wasn't really established in the book if magical superheroes and magic are som
I loved this book so much oh my god, I've laughed through the whole thing :D Andrew and Cassidy's banter was AMAZING, the progression of their relationship was very well done (what a great pair, I'd love to read more with them!) and the rest of the characters were fun too (if a bit less complex). This book was a pure unadulterated fun
My problem with the book was it's pacing, the story was very lightly touched upon for the first 80% of the book and then very quickly resolved in the rest. Honestly

5+ stars. This is one the funniest, captivating stories I’ve read. Andrew is a bit morose for a hero—but then again, the campus already has a superhero, Dandy Man, so perhaps Andrew doesn’t really fit the bill anyway. Cassidy, on the other hand, is the cockiest smartass on the planet. His path crosses Andrew’s time and again. And somehow, for reasons he can’t fathom, Andrew is starting to… feel something for Cassidy, despite his endless irritation.

But there’s so much else going on here too. A wh
It had potential, I guess, but the writing was clunky and it just wasn't very good. Another round of revisions might have helped, though I had trouble really immersing myself into the world at all; a product, I think, of it being an awkward mixture of slice-of-life contemporary and inexplicable superhero drama, and not something that revisions would fix.

I hate to give spoilers so I won't, but this book should be re-writeen as a fantasy. I don't want the author to think that I hate the book. I see lots of potential int he story and I hope that he goes back re-works the story because there is a great plot buried in there. For a full review go and see MM Good Book Reviews.
Could do with some polish and better editing overall, but overall witty, innovative, and entertaining.

This one just wasn't for me. Could not get into it and did not finish.

Jaidon is an asexual transman living in Austin, Texas who works restaurants by day and writes gay romance by night. Kind of like a superhero, only much less cool. He writes mostly comedies and is still waiting for someone to find his sense of humor as hysterically funny as he does. He’s been accused of being both dry and completely ridiculous. Expect a lot of puns.

Jaidon still doesn’t understand h
