A Midnight Justice story.
It’s been twenty-five years since the last Light Guardian was wiped out. Or so it’s believed. Ruby Winston is about to blow the lid off that theory, even though it’ll bring every Shadow Czar minion down on her ass.
She’s always known she was different from the rest of the evil-dictators-in-training Winstons. Uncovering the secret half of her gene pool proves it. Now she’s out to bring down her late father’s mind-control soda empire—and break the Shadow Czars’ hold on Earth.
Problem is, becoming a superhero overnight isn’t as easy as it looks.
Teague Younger has his own secrets to keep: his heritage, and his fierce determination to exact revenge on his friend and mentor’s murderer. So far he’s kept his cover—until he’s forced to use his Light Guardian powers to save Ruby from a sticky situation.
Thrust together and on the run, Teague and Ruby form a wary alliance as they desperately fight their circuit-blowing attraction. With an army of Shadow Queen minions hot on their tails, they might have a hard time surviving the night, much less ignoring their hearts.
This book contains mind-controlling beverages, evil dictators and minions, excessive use of spandex, and enough electrifying sex to melt an ice train.
I love it when a sexy book has the power to make you laugh and squirm at the same time. With the third book of the Midnight Justice series, I was giggling and fantasizing simultaneously. In this superhero installment, we meet Teague Younger; a Light Guardian in hiding who is determined to avenge the death of his closest friend. We also meet Ruby Winston; a young woman who was born into the dark side but with a determination to move into the light. After discovering the truth about her mother, Ruby sets out to destroy the evil Shadow Queen’s mind controlling soda empire and release the human’s from the mind controlled life they have been living. When Teague catches Ruby in the act, all hell breaks loose and together the pair must fight to save the world while trying to deal with an irresistable attraction to eachother.
While I have confessed to not being a fan of superhero stories, once again I am proven wrong regarding the stereotypes. Jodi Redford has created two characters that made me laugh from start to finish. The banter between Teague and Ruby is cute and completely giggle worthy. I could not stop smiling the first time Ruby sees Teague in all of his naked glory and has an entire conversation about his penis with him. It made me wish I was there for the show. The plot of the story is like many hero stories; the good guys are out to save the world. I found it humorous that this one involved mind control via soda. Hmm, if that is the case, I think caffiene has been controlling my mind for years. On a good note, this story involves some sexy scenes, that although they are short, are hot enough to satisfy and make you want more. This was a fun read to say the least!
