Brenda is a second-rate superhero, normally more concerned with uniform fashion than defeating bad guys. But when a violent, new super villain declares war against her city, she suddenly finds her specialized power to deafen sound in high demand.
As if facing the destructive force of a new enemy isn’t bad enough, she finds herself paired with the powerful, yet emotionally distant, Justice. Forced to work at the side of the only man who gets her heart pounding, Brenda is not only in danger of losing her life in battle, but also her heart to a man who might not be able to love her back.

What a fun book! Heels and Hero’s explores the lives of Superheroes- dirty socks and all. The people behind the mask, so to speak. Superheroes aren’t all created equal, and some powers are just better than others. Brenda aka Silencer has what is considered a weak or useless super power, despite coming from a power filled family. However, her “useless” powers become the most important in town when a super villain appears that she is uniquely able to deal with.
Brenda’s long standing crush on Justice (aka Justin) finally gets a real chance when she gets roped into the fight against the Howler. Some of the classic issues that comes up when an alpha meets a strong independent woman ensue, but even Justice has got to admit, Brenda kicks some ass.
I was really fascinated by this world, a more serious take of a world filled with Superheroes, reminiscent of Jennifer Estep’s Bigtime series, without the ridiculous puns. As a big time comic book fan, it gave me a glimpse into the real life worries of super heroes, showing that they are just as vulnerable as the rest of us.
Anyway. I thought this book was a great quick read, and would recommend it to readers who enjoy Urban Fantasy. It contains a heroine who is a hero in everyday life, trying to prove that she is also a hero in the world of Super Heroes; and a sexy hero. I am keeping my fingers crossed that more books will be forthcoming in this series….I want to know if Char can find some lovin!
