Ms. Harlow has created another exciting chapter in her superhero series that kept me on the edge of my seat and my emotions on a rollercoaster ride from start to finish. Joanna's still recovering from the dark place she went to following the death of her friend/soul mate Justin in the previous book. Relying on alcohol and isolation almost killed her, as did her survivor's guilt, but she's slowly coming back to life. With a trio of new superheroes on the scene she has found purpose once again, along with friends and a possible love interest. Just when happiness looks to be within reach a villain with a personal connection to the Triumvirate rears his nefarious head in a series of bombings and blackmail that might end her life just as it's beginning once again.
Joanna is an admirable heroine who's been put through the wringer repeatedly. She's rough around the edges and far from perfect but I was always impressed by her ability to keep going no matter how much pain she was in. I enjoyed her snark as well as seeing her fall for a new man. She was like a schoolgirl when dealing with new doctor in town Jem Ambrose and I enjoyed every scene that put them together. After everything she'd been through she deserved the moments of happiness he brought her.
The Triumvirate are an intriguing trio of superheroes with unique personalities and who are great at kicking butt in numerous action-packed scenes. Their real identities were obvious to me early on but for the most part were kept cleverly hidden throughout the story. The new villain in town is truly nasty in his personal vendetta and completely turns the superheroes lives upside down with one crushing blow that results in huge ramifications for the rest of the story. Ms. Harlow once again did the unexpected and I applaud her for keeping readers on the edge of their seats. Showing Joanna at her worst to build her up to a real life superhero made this an inspirational story and, with its unexpectedly moving romance, a thoroughly sweet and sexy read too. With an ending that's wiped the previous slate clean I'm greatly anticipating the final book in this series and the intensely emotional read I've come to expect from Ms. Harlow.
