Superheroes. Evil minions. And one hell of a conflict of interest. Being related to a supervillain isn’t a big deal to Pat West. So what if his mom occasionally tries to take over the world? All Pat wants is to finish university and become an urban designer. That he moonlights as an evil minion sometimes – that’s just a family tradition. Then Pat accidentally sleeps with superhero Silver Paladin, otherwise known as reclusive billionaire Nick Andersen. It’s a simple misunderstanding. Pat never means to impersonate a prostitute, honest. But soon Pat is in way over his head, and threatening to fall for the worst possible guy. When Pat’s mother returns to bring the world to its knees, Silver Paladin races to stop her… and all of Pat’s secrets threaten to blow up in his face. How can Pat reconcile being a minion with wanting a hero? Will Nick’s feelings for Pat overcome what keeps them apart? Or will they both lose everything?


A light, imaginative, and fun book that is warmer at heart than I expected. Sure, you have to suspend disbelief to enter this cartoon world of superheroes and villains – excuse me, challengers. But the main characters are surprisingly human in their flaws and desires, the humor is clever, and the plot has unexpected twists. This made a delightful lightweight break from my favorite angsty reads, while still giving me two men I enjoyed spending time with, and romance to cheer on to its happy ending.

I laughed so much during this book.  What a great, light read.
