Day – Hero Society 2 by Jessica Florence
Superhero Romance. Does not stand alone, read Dawn first.
I read TWO books in a month. I was in a total rut. Then I started Day by Jessica Florence and read it in one day! It’s completely unique, fun, sexy and exciting all in one.
“Two broken halves of a soul, made whole together.”
Leon…poor Leon. He has super strength and speed, but when his powers manifested, he caused grave damage to his best friend and will never forgive himself. One night after a few too many drinks he met Lilith.
“Hiya, I’m Lilith Sage. Dancer, lover of music, and retired spy goddess divine.”
“Leon Daniels. Stubborn ass, fisherman, freak with powers, anger issues, and a shitty memory problem”
I loved Lilith! She was a bit of a freak but I loved that about her.
“You mean crazy.” She giggled.
Leon took a little longer to warm up to. I wish he was as alpha as his powers suggest, but the years of guilt have taken their toll on him. He needed someone like Lilith to bring him back.
“Lillith was doing more than just looking at me on the outside, She was peering into my soul, like she was familiar with it.”
I loved how the whole Hero Society storyline is developing and that some superheroes may not have special powers but they are heroes nevertheless.
“We’ve been through this before. We keep moving, keep training, and keep searching for more like us. Hopefully with word getting out about us, others will join. We are out in the light of day, and now we can fight back the shadows as they come.”
Day is like a combination YA novel and erotic romance. I feel like Jessica’s writing and the story of this particular series would really be a great YA series if we lowered the ages just a bit and removed the detailed sex. There is just something a little immature about the writing that I actually found endearing (maybe overuse of exclamation points?). I think that young, fresh feel is also part of the thing I really enjoyed about it.
- I loved Lillith!
- Fun and kind of campy.
- I loved the new side characters.
- Wasn’t very predictable.
- Totally unique concept.
- Visiting with previous characters.
- I laughed while being on the edge of my seat.
- A bit immature. (But I kind of liked that)
- Not quite enough of a romance for me.
- Could have used another round of editing.
The Down & Dirty:
Rating: 4.25 Stars. 4 heat
