Spandex And The City Book Tour

Blooming Fiction, lifestyle blog, Spandex And The City Book Tour
 
Mild-mannered publicist Holly Phillips is unlucky in love. She's embarrassed beyond belief when the handsome stranger she meets in a bar turns out to be 'Ultimate Man' - a superpowered hero whose rescue attempt finds her hoisted over his shoulder and flashing her knickers in the newspaper the next day.

But when Holly's fifteen minutes of fame make her a target for something villainous, she only has one place to turn - and finds the man behind the mask holds a lot more charm than his crime-fighting alter-ego.

Review

Have you ever had a book where your initial thoughts are rendered completely inadequate by chapter three? This was the case when it came to Spandex And The City
 
At first I felt the book was far too unrealistic for me to read and it felt like it had come straight out of a Batman novel. As much as I like watching action films like The Avengers, this wasn't exactly my cup of tea but I bettered my inner critics and persisted.
 
Continuing through the chapters I became more engrossed in the storyline and soon forgot about my initial reservations.  Poor Holly's inadvertent 15 minutes of fame is something we can all dread but of course it's much funnier when it happens to someone else. Relishing in this aspect of schadenfreude ( taking pleasure in someone else's pain ) Spandex And The City evolved into a fun and fast moving book which kept me turning the pages until the end.
 
Finding love is an adventure of its own and this is exactly what is focused on in Spandex And The City. Whether it's regular or super hero dating, the elements are generally the same except for one variation comes with additional tights and spandex. Life takes on similar twists and turns, as does Holly's, which is perfectly depicted in this novel as well as how we turn to those we love in times of crisis.
 
Although the surface of Spandex And The City is not something I would usually jump for, the underlying nature of the storyline is charming and completely addictive.
