The Bigtime series is set in the city of Bigtime where superheros and super villians all work and play. Each book features a different hero, with their own unique powers and their struggle to make Bigtime a safer city for all.

I love these books because they're great fun! The heroes are sexy, the villains are classic and the romances are hot!! I'm a big fan and can't wait for the next Bigtime adventure!

I have read some reviews that state that this isn't similar to what Jennifer Estep usually writes, and it isn't. But that is the beautiful thing, she is an author who can step out of the box and write something that is a different take on superheroes. This series is so cheesy and campy, and just so wonderfully written. It is a fun read, plain and simple. If that isn't what you're interested in reading, then I suggesting skipping this series. Each book focuses on a member of Bigtime, and what being a citizen entails. There are heroes, ubervillians, and those in between. If you are looking for something fun and different to read, then I recommend this series. It is only .99, and you can't beat that deal!

Random: I would also recommend her other series. She writes an urban fantasy and young adult series that are both different from one another, but good reads as well. There is one thing that Jennifer Estep does that I especially love. In one series, the setting is Ashland, and she continues to use that city and the Pork Pit, another big setting, as places her other characters have heard of or have lived. I think that is just something fun for her readers to find in her various series.

These books combine a great story with just the right amount of fun and attention to detail. Estep does a great job knowing the memes of the comic book world and using them to enhance her stories (check out all the name alliteration).

These are great novels that anyone with interest in super heroes would enjoy.

KARMA GIRL – 4/5
Cute chick lit PNR à la superhero where every city has at least one do-gooder, and one ubervillain. The characters were wacky, the story light-hearted, and no thinking cap was required to figure out the plot. I put most of the pieces together well before Jennifer Estep laid everything out, however it wasn’t overly difficult considering the first letter of each hero’s secret identity was the same as their masked self. The author was a little too liberal with her definition of karma, but she consistently went over-the-top in all of the aspects of this book, so it matched the overall theme, and made for an entertaining read.

HOT MAMA – 4/5
This installment was the complete opposite of the previous one; Carmen Cole was a reluctant heroine while as Fiona Fine was an “I’m the s***”, and fabulous, and powerful, and *insert endless glowing adjectives here*. This novel was even more off-the-wall than book 1 with boundless puns, crazy antics, and an irresistible second shot at love romance. I’d expected that Fiera’s large-than-life personality would get on my nerves, however given her back story; I couldn’t help but like her in the end. The twists were once again easy to predict as was the outcome, nevertheless fun was had by all.

JINX – 3/5
I had my doubts as to how a protagonist who hates superheroes was going to fit into this series, and unfortunately Bella’s wishy-washy ways drove me absolutely bonkers. It was easy to understand the reasons behind Bulluci’s unwillingness to give Debonair and their relationship a chance, but she burned so hot & and cold that her constant mood swings gave me whiplash.

I wanted to read a fun new series, and came across this one and liked the way it was superhero-centered, even if it was a romance. I've read romances before that weren't trite and saccharine, and this one had an element that seemed fun, so I went with it.

I can't say it's well-written. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the writing is pretty juvenile, utterly simplistic. I've dismissed that to the possibility that the author is taking the comic book aspect literally and dumbing things down for readers. And yes, it's obvious two chapters in who everyone is -- the superheroes and the ubervillains, so there's not much mystery or plot to the thing beyond "when is she going to figure this out already?" And yes, that lack of substance leads to slow-going plot movement. And yes, every now and then, an obvious word/phrase misusage makes me grind my teeth and wonder if anyone uses proofreaders anymore. And yes, there are plot inconsistencies that are more like plot contradictions, which can make your head spin if you've made the mistake of paying too much attention. And yes, the characters are pretty one-dimensional, but at least they're mostly likeable. And yes, the quality of the writing, the plot, the character development, and the plot consistency diminishes greatly in each new book.

For me, the dealbreaker is the terrible ending to book two. They had a character unlike most characters in most books, and it was one of the things that really impressed me about this series, and then they "fixed" them, turning them into I guess what the author considers a real person instead. I'm trying to be vague here, because I don't want to spoil anything for potential readers, but you;ll know what it is if/when you get there.
