Synopsis and Details:
Being a superhero is not all it’s cracked up to be
Saving the day is sometimes the last thing Greer Glenanne wants to do. But as her city’s official superhero, she really doesn’t have much of a choice. It doesn’t matter that she’s forty-six, grumpy, and annoyed by most of the population. She’ll catch whatever criminals she needs to catch because that’s the gig. Next up on her to-catch list?
He’s stupid-hot, way too charming for her liking, a decade younger than her, potentially a supervillain…and he flirts with her mercilessly.
How’s a superhero supposed to do her job when she can’t seem to keep her mind (and hands) off the bad guy?

Review with Rating:
There will never be a book that comes from author Isabel Jordan that I will say “no” to. Any genre, any length because she never fails to amuse me! I just love her sarcastic and comedic writing style. Caped and Dangerous is just another example of her taking an unlikely scenario and knocking it out of the park. A grumpy superhero with a potty mouth? Yes, please. This is a series that I am most eager to continue in!
Greer Glenanne is a woman that has been a superhero long enough for the shine to rub off. She is getting older and even with her superhero powers, she is starting to feel the marching of time. Oh my gosh, can I relate to Greer! Though, if I had her gig, I would be a whole bunch more jaded and grumpier. She was a wonderful character and I loved how, even if she wasn’t feeling it, she was committed to doing her best. There was no job or situation that she wasn’t going to give her all to, even if that “situation” included Killian Morgan.
Killian was the kind of man that one would fantasize about but stick in the ‘clearly out of league’ category. Not to mention that he may or may not be a villain. He was both mysterious and adorable. I loved the dual points of view because being inside his and Greer’s head was exactly where I wanted to be as a reader. I laughed and laughed while reading this story! Those two characters were wonderful and even better together.
I also enjoyed the other characters in Caped and Dangerous that added to the mayhem that was Greer’s life. You will have to read it to get to know them but trust me they are all totally worth it. I had such a good time reading this story and, besides the humor, there is a romance element that was hot, hot, hot. The chemistry between Greer and Killian was palpable and also had a sweetness to it. Such a good book! I highly recommend that you grab a copy today and just FYI it is available on kindle unlimited, yay!
*Thank you to author Isabel Jordan for this eARC of Caped and Dangerous*
