The idea for Searching for Superman came from a blog post by a single guy, in which he lamented that, though women say they like nice guys, it seems like the bad boys are always the ones that capture their imaginations and their hearts.
Romance is often filled with Alpha heroes, he-men, princes who will sweep a girl off her feet. Guys like superman. But what about the ordinary guys? The nice guys who aren't superheros? Doug Castleberry, the hero in Searching for Superman, is one of those. An or

I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

To start off I want to say one this about this story... It is freaking adorable! Oh my freaking gawd! I loved reading about everything that Stephanie and Doug had to go through. It had enough drama to keep me interested, but it was definitely a happy-go-lucky story. I hadn't read one of those in a while, and I enjoyed it a lot.

With that being said, there are grammatical issues. I don't just mean misuse of commas, which I've not

Very enjoyable! I love this author's work!

Ute Carbone takes her cue from Jane Austen's "Emma" and puts a perfectly good guy right under her main character's nose. The story is all about how long it will take Stephanie to wake up and check out the hot guy who dresses himself up to make children's parties more fun. A satisfying read! I saw the grammatical errors noted in earlier reviews as well, but it didn't put me off my reading stride. I'm giving this book 4 stars because although I know it's

Award winning author Ute Carbone pronounces her first name Oohtah, but doesn't spell it that way. She lives with her husband in Southern NH, where she spends her days drinking coffee, eating chocolate, walking in the woods, and dreaming up stories.

There's been a long list of things I've wanted to be. Some of them were fanciful- ballerina, trapeze artist, world class ski racer. Some more serious-d

“You said you wanted Superman. And when Superman comes along, you give him the stink eye."
"I did not."
"Yes you did," Steve said. "If looks could kill, poor Superman would be a goner.”
