To the Fifth Power is a action packed, steamy romance that will bring out the superhero in everyone. Zola and Fort…wow…the tension, the steamy looks, and my, oh, my when Fort takes charge it is absolutely delicious! When I seen the cover I immediately thought about Catwoman. With the crouching and the black leather I was immediately intrigued. I loved Zola. Her strengths, her insecurities, and her absolute determination. She can be fierce and strong, but she can be fragile and unsure. Fort balances her completely and pushes her when she needs to be pushed, comforts her, and understands her. Fort has a mystery to him as well. He is tight lipped about his past, but you can tell right away that he is more than just a psychiatrist. He will have to let Zola in order for her to trust him. Fort has his reasons, but he wants Zola with a fierceness that brings out the Alpha Male in him. YUM! The danger, the suspense, the romance, and the superpowers (which I totally envy) makes this one of my new favorite reads! I have to say that Entangled knows how to pick authors, to date, I have not read a book that Entangled has published that I have not loved! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

With the whole big hubba baloo with superheroes right now, I felt that I just HAD to read To the Fifth Power by Shirin Dubbin.  A superhero gone into retirement now being hunted by three escaped mega-villains?  Sounded pretty awesomesauce to me. Zola Noite was once the most sought after superhero around, until she was forced to witness the death of her sidekick, which in turn, sent her from numero uno to numero zero.  Leaving the world of crime fighting behind, Zola has been seeing psychologist, Dr. Forte (aka Fort), who has helped her out of her climb out of her dark hole, and rejoin the living. But when three of mega-villan’s escape the very institute that Fort works at, their main objective seems to be destroying Zola.  But how does Fort play into all of this?  And will Zola be able to overcome the darkness that has seeped into her very soul, and defeat these villain’s before they destroy her. Although there were elements in this book that kept my attention, there was just something missing.  With only being just over 100 pages, the pacing was a little quick, with short glimpses into the character(s)’ background.  At times, I felt as though the story was a bit rushed, and as an epic fight scene would ensue, just as my interest was peaking, it was over all too soon. The characters in To the Fifth by Shirin Dubbin were ones that readers will easily enjoy, but again, the lack of character background left them a little hollow.  I felt like we were offered just a taste of, what could have been, some pretty epic fight scenes.  There is a very sexy-time scene in the book, which would make this suitable for a more mature audience.  But again, that scene seemed to have happened in a blink of an eye. Don’t get me wrong!  To the Fifth was enjoyable, it was just very quick.  More like a movie preview, rather than the full length movie.  I would recommend this read to fans of superhero reads, and are into reads that have intriguing plot twists.

A so good book. I liked Zola´s mind and how she was in all the story, but sometimes I didn't understand her acts or words... I don't like Fort Character so much, but his relation and relationship with Zola was amazing. The descriptions were confusing in some pages, but later I understood them. From all the book, I loved the end. IN.CRE.DI.BLE. Thanks to Entangled Publishing for the Book! Un libro muy bueno. Me gustó la mente de Zola y como fue ella en la historia, aunque algunas veces no entendí lo que hacía o decía... No me gustó mucho el personaje de Fort, pero su relación profesional y sentimental con Zola fue asombrosa. Las descripciones fueron confusas en algunas páginas, pero luego las entendí. De todo el libro, amé el final. IN.CREÍ.BLE. ¡Gracias a Entangled Publishing por el libro!

My Thoughts - 3.5 out of 5 unicorns - I liked it! **Received from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review Okay to start out, I love the cover.  It grabbed my attention to read it.    I love superheroes :)  At first, I have to admit that I was confused and lost.  I didn’t get into the book until about half way through and the author totally surprised me because I didn’t see where the ending was going.  I love when an author does that.  I think this book had some awkwardness being the first in the series, but I think this series is going to be fabulous in the coming books.  I definitely wonder about Zola before her retirement and want to read more about her and her friends.  Superheroes are people too, and they have drama just like us.  That’s what this book is about.   If you are interested in superheroes and the drama that goes with the job, you will definitely enjoy this book.  Keep in mind this contains adult content and is not YA.
