Manhattan Ten Blog Tour : Reviews & Giveaway

Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Manhattan Ten blog tour today. There is a review of the three books and a giveaway for you all.



TEMPTRESS (Manhattan Ten #1)
Kiss your powers goodbye.

Kidnapping a super-powered suspected felon from a Vegas bachelor party is another day at the office for Jenny Ray, alias Temptress. With one kiss, any naughty supe’s powers are hers. Except this time she’s caught by her mark’s boss, who’s no ordinary superhero.

It’s Thinktank, leader of the toughest hero crew around. One destroyed men’s room and near-toilet-drowning later, Jenny’s forced to steal an innocent hero’s powers.

For a super brain, Tank’s feeling pretty idiotic. First, he let Jenny close enough to get to him. Second, he’s helpless against the tide of desire that rises in him every time he kisses her. Which he’s doing a lot, since she’s trying to give him back his power—only it’s not working. As he shadows her on her various freelance casino security jobs, he realizes she’s no she-demon—she’s a time bomb. Her acquired powers are shredding her, body and soul.

As they give in to desire, a shadowy figure from Jenny’s past surfaces with a kidnapping plan of his own. Jenny will do anything—even level Las Vegas—to rescue the man she loves. But there may not be anything left of her when the dust settles.

Product Warnings
Contains high-stakes poker, high-end cocktails, and high-flying over Las Vegas skies. Never drink and fly!

My Review
Jenny aka Temptress can take any super heroes power with one kiss. She then gets that persons powers. She uses this to work her jobs and make money. On a mission to bring in a super hero and take his power till he has been freed from charges. All goes well until Thintank catches her. She has to take his powers so she can get the other super to jail. This leads her to get in trouble as Tank is the head super hero. While she should be able to return his powers with a kiss something doesn't go right. Now they are stuck close together until he gets them back. Between trying to unravel a madmans plot and sharing more kisses hoping things will go back to normal they begin to really fall for each other.

Jenny has more powers than she even knows. She uses them for good and hates to pull up the darker ones. She is confused as to why she can't return Thinktank's power and it bugs her cause she can now know what everyone is thinking and some things she doesn't want to know. A villain has appeared and it seems he knows Jenny but she doesn't know him. She realizes she has some gaps in her memory and he may be the only one to help her get them back. Tank is the boss and tries to keep things going smoothly. Jenny changes all that when se takes his power. Now he is staying close to her and he sees she is a great fighter and she is very hot. The two work great together and have loads of heat between them I really liked this story as the superheroes are amazing and I love all their powers. Jenny is one to jump into things and uses everything she has to put a stop to evil villains. I have to say I loved her very much. She is a phenomenal main character. If you like a story with lots and lots of action and or superheroes be sure to pick this up.

IVORY (Manhattan Ten #2)
That cold day in hell? It’s here…

If Ivory’s fellow flight attendants whisper that she has ice in her veins, they’d be right. She’s spent years ruthlessly suppressing her dangerous ice powers, pretending she didn’t grow up wild on the tundra.

Her legendary coolness has held solid—until a crazed attacker snaps her composure, unleashing her ice beast and blowing her cover. And she’s not sure if the man who defuses the situation is any less dangerous.

When Panther’s trans-Atlantic catnap is interrupted by Ivory’s ice spear through his mark’s gut, he doesn’t hesitate to claim her as one of the Manhattan Ten. It’s the only way to shield her from prosecution. It doesn’t hurt that the Nordic beauty puts his inner cat on the prowl.

Panther tempts Ivory in every smoldering way, but to let him melt her resistance is a risk she can’t afford. But when her past rises up to claim her, Pan is caught in the crossfire…and the only way to save him is to let the beast claim her, body and soul.

Product Warnings
Contains one smoldering ice vixen and the sexy beast man who wants to get his claws all over her. Make sure your icemaker is in tip-top shape before reading. Mukluks optional.

My Review
Ivory never wanted anyone to know she had a power. They call her an ice queen but they have no clue how true that really is. She is hiding from her family and doing what she has always dream and that is traveling. Working as a flight attendant she ends up having to use her powers on a crazy man. While her cover is blown she is saved by one of the Manhattan Ten Panther. Panther was on the plain to get some clues but got distracted by Ivory. He is impressed by her and takes her to the headquarters to help her. While she wants no part of staying in one place, Panther makes her rethink those things. She may be an ice queen but he heats her blood up. Now with a string of murdered supers turning up they work together to solve the mystery. Ivory's past may be the cause of this string of murders and tracking them down just may put Panther in danger. Ivory will have to dig deep to save the one that has claimed her.

Ivory seems like a snob to her coworkers but I liked her when she took a chance to help a child. You see she has a good heart then. She doesn't like having powers and would like to be normal but the supers show her that may not be possible anymore. She only wants to leave but she has to face the fact that she can't. She really hasn't used her powers to their extent but no she is working on them full power and learning to control them. Panther wants her from the start and not just as a new member of the team. He sees beyond the coldness of her to the heat beneath. The two counterbalance each other and help each other. There is danger, action and so much more in this book. I can't get enough of these super heroes.

BELLE FURY (Manhattan The #3)

This is one diva with killer moves…

Belle Fabian has worked her toes to the bone to become an internationally renowned ballerina. When the curtains rise on her career-making performance of Giselle, she brings down the house—literally.

Mid-dance, she manifests a superpower that nearly destroys the Metropolitan Opera House, wiping out a line of chorus girls and sending the audience dashing for the exits. As she flees the theater, she assumes the worst. Her hard-won career is over.

The Manhattan Ten’s leader is playing hooky with his new lady, so it falls to Red Ruin to round up the super-powered danseur. It’s just one small, bird-boned woman hiding in a convenience store. How hard could it be?

Their first encounter generates sparks that border nuclear and their chemistry sends Belle’s powers into overdrive, but their perfect storm of passion is marred by her suspicion that Ruin is holding back. That secret that could turn the sweet burn of Ruin’s lightning into a permanent scar on her heart.

Warning: Contains one lightning-hot hero and a not-so-blushing ballerina. May cause third-degree burns and spontaneous tango
My Review
Belle only wanted to be the best ballerina ever. She has worked hard all her life walking away from everything to get to where she is. Now just when she gets the role of a lifetime she suddenly manifest super powers. Her dreams may be over and now she has to learn to harness her powers. She has help from the Red Ruin. Ryan wants to help Belle and even while he is busy working hard she still keeps his attention. He can't stay away from her. The whole time he is helping her he is also keeping a secret. The secret just may destroy them.

I have to say at for a while I didn't like Belle. She seemed grouchy and I know her life has been changed but she just sees stuff for herself to me. I did feel sorry for her when I was hearing about her family but I would think having a family like she does she would act better. She did do a turn around towards the end for me. Ryan is so amazing. He is way overworked and at times he doesn't feel like he is important. He tries his best to show Belle she is special and how special her powers are. There isn't as much good vs evil in this book for me it was more about Belle learning who she should be and what she has. I eagerly look forward to reading the next Manhattan Ten book,
