Book Blurb: When Dina’s wellspring of reality television program ideas runs dry, she’s desperate to save her job. Dina’s friends are no ordinary friends. To save her job she comes up with I want to date a superhero. Unfortunately, the only superhero she knows is Zane Blair. He’s the only man she’s ever loved. Comedy hijinks ensue when you take one reluctant bachelor, ten attention seeking woman, and one very evil super villain

Review: If you are looking for something unique to read this summer, this is your book. This was one of the most original plots I'd seen in a long time when it comes to romance. Superheroes and reality tv! Who would have thought they would go together? Who would have thought they would make for a great book!

The parts of the book revolving around the reality dating show are laugh aloud funny, because they are so spot on with the dating show crap that the networks keep foisting on us. Dina is a great heroine. It is easy to understand her reluctance to get involved with Zach. At the same time you want to smack her because you know that both of them really are into each other.

The superheroes and Dina all share a similar background and they grew up together under some unusual and rather nasty circumstances. They all started out as normal kids too.  After a series of events Dina left the bunch to persue a "normal" life.

Oh and did I mention one of the original group has turned bad and wants Dina for himself?

Oh yeah!

This book has it all; superheroes, romance, an evil villian and a happily ever after. The writing was engaging and fun and at times the story was laugh out loud funny. This is the perfect book for an afternoon at the beach!

Good times!

My blog Amish Stories is having its first ever contest this week. The First prize winner will win 2 tickets to tour the farm where the 1985 move "Witness" staring Harrison Ford and Kelly Mcgillis was made in Strasburg,Pa . This farm is now Amish owned, and the family has given permission for folks to tour their farm. This may be the last time anyone will be able to walk and see the same things that Harrison Ford and the other actors saw during the making of "Witness". The Witness tour should last about 2.5 hours. In addition to the Witness farm tour tickets, 1st prize winner will also receive 2 tickets for Jacobs choice. There will also be a 2nd place prize, which will be 2 tickets for the Amish Homestead. Please go to My blog www.AmishStorys.com for contest details, and more information on the prizes. Richard from the Amish settlement of Lebanon county.

Thanks so much for hosting me! I really appreciate this wonderful review! I wrote this book to cheer myself up during a hard time in my life so it’s one of my favorites. Dina really did become someone special in my life so I’m so glad you’ve seen the fun in this story too.
