Which does he want more: the world, or the woman he loves?
If you believe the rumours, Doctor Charm, wickedly sexy super villain, retired in shame seven years ago after his fight with superhero Zephyr Girl. The fact that the charming Evan Smith--father of four and husband to the too-beautiful-to-be-real Tabitha--bears a resemblance to the defeated Doctor is pure coincidence. And please, ignore the minions.
The Smith household is perfect--until Tabitha announces that she's returning to work as a superhero. Evan was hoping to keep her distracted until after he rigged the presidential election, but--genius that he is--Evan has a backup plan. In his basement lab, Evan has a machine whose sole purpose is keeping Tabitha hungry for him.
But children and labs don't mix, and when they break the machine, Tabitha storms out. This time his genius isn't going to be enough--he's going to need both his evil alter-ego and the blooming super abilities of his children to save his wife. But even his most charming self might not be enough to save their marriage.
About the Author
Liana Brooks once read the book GOOD OMENS by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and noted that both their biographies invited readers to send money (or banana daiquiris). That seems to have worked well for them. Liana prefers strawberry daiquiris (virgin!) and will never say no to large amounts of cash in unmarked bills.
Her books are sweet and humorous with just enough edge to keep you reading past your bedtime.
Liana was born in San Diego and in addition to there has lived in Illinois, Colorado, Florida, Texas, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Kansas. We'd like to tell you where she is right now, but last we checked she was researching books on both Alaska and Africa.
Not only are the bookstore algorithms breaking trying to track this lady, but we can't tell you where to mail that daiquiri. Your best bet is to try Twitter where you can often find @LianaBrooks talking about her four kids, her giant dog, and plans for world domination.

This was so fun to read.dfun yreadoo
Funny, witty and romantic! I've never come across a plot like this! This is sort of in the superhero fan fiction area! Something I would have killed to have had a chance to read when I was a geeky teen. Okay, so we have The Avengers and all the superheroes involved ( Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and so on... ) , and then we have Super Villains and let's not kid our selves we have the occasional wet dream of the bad guy going good just for us - cue in Even Villains Fall In Love! Evan is such a yummy deliciously still little bit evil villain, Doctor Charm ( got to love all the hero/villain names in this book! ), named after his multiple charms, awestruck good looks, killer smile, high IQ, that Dior suit and a weird array of multicolored minions. Having a guy like Evan fall for you head over heals sure makes for yummy read! I absolutely loved how the book was only in Evan's point of view, each chapter starting with a rather lusty/romantic memory of Zephyr Girl. Though I feel I need to point out there is no getting busy in this book ( what?!? Yeah I know, right! ). The romance was built on Evan's idea of him not deserving her so he created a machine to make her love him, so we begin seven years later and the machine breaks creating all kinds of chaos - and in the middle of that chaos is Evan coming to grasps with possibly loosing his gorgeous wife, who's behavior changed drastically and raising their five year old quads alone. Of course romance need a happy ending, and love prevails again even for a criminal mastermind. ;)
This book was too much fun. It was a quick read, I loved the plot, I loved the characters, and I loved the writing style. Liana Brooks has a true fan in me! The first line of the book hooked me. “I knew from the first time I saw my wife that I wanted her naked”. My first thought to myself was, what a way to start a book! The fun only continued from there. In Even Villains Fall In Love, Evan, the storyteller and a retired super villain, has to reclaim his wife (who is a retired superhero) and make her love him again when the machine that has been controlling her and telling her that she is madly in love with him, breaks. The chaos that ensues as a result is hilarious...and darling. The couple have four little quadruplet girls who are as cute as can be and have some of the best lines in the book. I mean, this book was truly a charmer! Evan was funny and kind of sexy, in that I’m-the-bad-guy-but-I’m-also-a-dork sort of way. Tabitha, his wife, is beautiful and has her own quirky sense of humor, and the Quads: Angela, Maria, Delilia, and Blessing are just dolls. Walking, talking, messing-up-perfectly-good-experiments dolls, but they are adorable all the same...and have a few super powers of their own. If you are into superhero/supervillain type fantasy books, this one is for you. You’ll laugh, roll your eyes, and shake your head at all the funny, ridiculous things that happen, but you’ll love it. I know I did.
EVFiL is a fun, quirky story about the super villain who married the superhero. He's hot, she's gorgeous, and it was just the kind of scandal the world needed :D Only now they have four kids, Evan's plan to take over the world via the US presidential elections is falling behind schedule - and his wife decides she wants to go back to superheroing. Seriously, is this not the most awesome set up? But of course, everything goes wrong, and Evan has to decide between ruling the free world, and getting his wife back - and, of course, everything is not as it seems >:) So, reasons why you should read this book: 1) It's funny. 2) If you like anything in the superhero genre, you will probably like this. 3) It's SO nice to have a romance novel(la) based on a married couple for a change. Romance does not end with a wedding, people! 4) It's funny. If you enjoy lighthearted romance, real family dynamics, and a bit of superhero magic on the side, this is definitely the book for you. It's funny, it's quirky, and I really can't wait to read the next in the series :D
