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!
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
