Meet Caprice, better known as the villainess Capricious Whim….
Caprice is a woman who works hard and plays hard. She’s a veteran villain of Imperial City, and what you might call a ‘maladjusted individual’. While she plots to achieve her own goals, she’s forced to take whatever jobs may come along, and any unintended consequences from them!
The heroes don’t always win in this world, but being a villain has its own unique set of problems.
[Warning, explicit sexual content including light bdsm. Over 26,000+ words.]
Supers, metahumans, mutants and freaks oh my! Sounds like my kind of crowd. Caprice Whim is perfectly beautiful and those kind of looks aren’t cheap. She is a telepathic killer for hire with telekinetic powers. All the “super villains” hang out at The Underground to find jobs and make connections. This is where Caprice teams up with Michael and Harry for job. And so begins the adventure….
What an amazing book! Actually, in my opinion anything this author writes is a MUST READ! I highly recommend her. I loved everything about this book. I was loving it so much that I started to look for things that I didn’t like and I can only think of one little thing that was slightly off to me, but I still liked it. This books has sizzling panty melting sex, an interesting and well written storyline, intriguing and well developed characters that I can’t wait to learn more about and lots of action. I was glued to the pages and didn’t want it to end.
I mentioned that there was one little thing that seemed off to me. Well, Caprice is this killer for hire and she is one of the best in her field. When she goes on a job, she seems to get tuckered out pretty quick if she is using her powers at max capacity. She had to be carried out because she was too spent. Just seems odd to me that she wouldn’t have a backup plan in a situation like that, since she is one of the best. Of course I find out that she refuels a lot like Popeye does with his Spinach. LOL! But that’s it. Even though I say it was slightly off, I get why she was weakened. It didn’t distract from the story at all and I wouldn’t change a thing. Caprice is a total bad ass and I have her down as one of my top 10 favorite characters.
I wanted these kinds of superhero and villain books when I was a kid. I read books with male heroes and wished that someone would write a kick ass book where women were the heroes. Why do the boys get to have all the fun? I don’t know about you, but I wished for more women heroes like Wonder Woman or a female version of Sherlock Holmes. There were some books like that, but not many. Didn’t matter to me if she was good or bad. This is my wish come true but even better because it appeals to my darker and adult kinkier side.
Overall I loved this. This type of book appeals to me on so many levels. Strong female, sci-fi fantasy, superheroes and villains, kinky and detailed sex and a really good storyline. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one….
