I'm the author, so I can't really review it. I just hope everyone enjoys it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I'm currently working on the next one, Kat & Mouse. There are 13 books in the series. I plan on releasing two more next year, and getting very rough drafts of the rest written by the end of 2017. It's a fun world to play in! ...more

Unlucky Charm is a fantastic kick off for what I hope is a long series.
The authors serve a delightful mix of action, well defined characters, humour and romance in a fast pace story full of the right twists and turns.
Can't wait for more!

An enjoyable read. Good to discover the authors look at supernaturals and the power that they possess. We discover that no one knows where they come from, or what limits their power may have.

The author weaves an interesting tale as the "Supers" try to discover all of their kind which exist. They also try to protect themselves from the bad side of human kind.

Unfortunately the book just ends. The story doesn't end, it apparently continues in the next book of the series. This book just stops.

Found on a free site, this was a very good introduction to the series, which is quite involved and carries a lot of characters.

Not much to say about this one. For a prequel it was good. I liked Kat’s character and the twins. The storyline on Hugh’s part was a bit out there. Unsure yet if I’d read anymore given the setting.

This book is a "super" fun read!! The characters will make you laugh with their hilarious antics, and even pull a little on your heart strings. I love Hugh!!! He is such a great character. I can't wait for the next one!!

A very enjoyable read. Kimberley Gordon writes with humour and pace. I really liked Hugh and Jacob, two of the male supers although I was not so sure of Kat, the heroine. This is mainly because she is, whilst clearly one sexy lady, seen and used as a sex object by the males around her. I have to confess to being a little annoyed that she appeared to conform with this, but that said, this is just the prequel and there are glimpses of a deeper more rounded character which I feel sure the writer wi ...more

(FYI I tend to only review one book per series, unless I completely change my mind on a series, so want to change my scoring down a lot)

How I rate Stars: 5* = I loved (must read all I can find by the author)
4* = I really enjoyed (got to read all the series and try other books by the author).
3* = I enjoyed (I will continue to read the series)
3* = Good book just not my thing (I realised I don't like the genre or picked up a kids book to review in error.)

All of the above scores means I would r

This is a great introduction to the "Supers" which I hope will evolve into a follow up. These characters are great!
From sexy Kat (on the cover) to "Gentleman" Hugh, this quickly turned into a real fun read. With black humour thrown into the mix along with unique characters with very original superpowers. The storyline had me hooked from the opening pages.
It's fast moving, involving with plenty of action thrown in. I recommend this book to any reader looking for a fun, action packed, adult super

Very interesting characters. The storyline is creative and keeps you invested. This is a good introduction. Kat is a cop. She gets into trouble, a lot. An intriguing event occurs and she finds herself with a better offer. A new bounty hunting job. Meanwhile, supers are trying to stay under the radar. Too bad Huge is on trial for killing his brother.

Get ready to fall in love with these characters! Kimberly Gordon pulls you into this world, and you won't want to leave! Her characters are funny, endearing, and genuine! I absolutely loved this prequel, and I can't wait for future installments!

Lots of fun!
Totally new author for me, I fell for this action-packed, superhero story. Loved the character of Kat as a cop, not realizing the powers she holds. What hooked me was the humor and suspense. Can't wait for the next instalment!
