Being a superheroine is hard. Working for one is even harder.
Evie Tanaka is the put-upon personal assistant to Aveda Jupiter, her childhood best friend and San Francisco's most beloved superheroine. She's great at her job—blending into the background, handling her boss's epic diva tantrums, and getting demon blood out of leather pants.
Unfortunately, she's not nearly as together when it comes to running her own life, standing up for herself, or raising her tempestuous teenage sister, Bea.
But everything changes when Evie's forced to pose as her glamorous boss for one night, and her darkest comes out: she has powers, too. Now it's up to her to contend with murderous cupcakes, nosy gossip bloggers, and supernatural karaoke battles—all while juggling unexpected romance and Aveda's increasingly outrageous demands. And when a larger threat emerges, Evie must finally take charge and become a superheroine in her own right... or see her city fall to a full-on demonic invasion.
When I read the synopsis of Heroine Complex I thought it sounded like a fun read. I mean look at the cover! One girl has some sort of fireball in her hand, while the other is kicking creepy looking cupcakes! The first three pages of the book had me. It started off with some serious ass-kicking, but it was also very comical.
Evie is the assistant to Aveda Jupiter. Aveda is this awesome superhero that keeps San Francisco safe from demons. Aveda is strong, beautiful, and a tad bit narcissistic. Evie is the one who keeps the well oiled machine of Aveda Jupiter, Inc running, along with Lucy and Nate. She really does take a lot from not only Aveda, but also the media. I love how she has a bit of bite to her, too! She's not only doing that but also caring for her sister and trying to make sure that all of her dreams come true! When she has to step up she does it with her own bit of flare, not with what Aveda would do. Aveda wants to be in the forefront and Evie wants to hide in the background, but no matter how much she wants it she's made to stand out! Everyone seems to see if but her and I enjoyed reading the ups and downs of her trying to figure it out, because in spite of all that she really had not just her friends but all of San Francisco in mind when she took to the streets.
I fell in love with these characters and am hoping that Kuhn is writing more because I cannot wait to see what other shenanigans they get into. This book was expertly written! There were several heart warming parts, but mostly it was full of sassy kick-ass characters! I loved every single thing about it! A must read for anyone! ANYONE!
