Book Description


After a surprising betrayal, investigative reporter Carmen Cole decides to devote her life to unmasking superheroes and ubervillains in Bigtime, N.Y. But her actions put her in the middle of a battle between the Fearless Five superhero team and the ubervillains of the Terrible Triad.

Fiona Fine is the hottest fashion designer in Bigtime—literally. That's because she moonlights as Fiera, a superhero with superstrength and volatile, fire-based powers. And with two new ubervillains in town, Fiona will need all of her powers just to survive.

Thanks to her unwanted superpower, fashion designer Bella Bulluci may be the luckiest woman in Bigtime. But luck can be good or bad, and it seems like just as many embarrassing things happen to Bella as do positive ones. But Bella is going to need every bit of her good luck when she becomes the target of two ubervillains intent on stealing a prize sapphire.

On Christmas Eve, Carmen Cole is assigned to guard toys, clothes, food, and more that are intended for needy children and their families. An ubervillain plans to steal and then sell the toys to the highest bidder, but Carmen is determined to stop the villain—and make sure that this Christmas is a happy one for all the kids who are counting on her.

Anxious brides. Drunken businessmen. Panicked partygoers. As Bigtime’s premiere event planner, Abby Appleby is capable of handling almost any crisis, but even she’s not prepared when she finds herself in the middle of a fight between superhero Talon and his ubervillain nemesis Bandit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bigtime is a great time!! December 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars I just can't. March 4, 2014
By FelJed
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Karma Girl: I really like this author's elemental assassin series, and I do like her writing style, but I don't think I can read this series. As another reviewer said the book seems to be written for young adult except for the sex scenes. The mystery is pubescent--I mean their names have the same letter as their alter ego. I know that's a theme in comic books, but this a book book and I'm a grown up.

The inner dialogue is very repetitive and the plot tends to drag since the only goal (as far as I have read) is to uncover the bad guys identity by sitting at a computer all day and pretending to not want to bang Striker.

The side characters seem less than dynamic to me: the bitch, the nerd, the father figure. Even Striker seems bland--typical romantic hero. This book would have been far more interesting from his prospective. He should be the one lamenting a potential relationship with Carmen. He should be struggling to stay away from her out of respect for his dead friend.

The main character is amusing, but I a want to ring her neck--Tornado is dead get over it or at least stop reminding me of it. A guilty conscience does not a plot make. Oh and why couldn't she identify Striker right away. She can tell when he is in her apartment but not standing next to her in public?

I think this was an interesting idea for book-merging romance and comic book, but I think it was lacking a few key things: more plot, more mystery, more action.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun venture into the world of super heroes January 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very cheesy and fun series January 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Juvenile and Disappointing, but Fun in its own way January 13, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
