BOOK REVIEW...Seductive Powers (The Capes #1) by Rebecca Royce

Title:  Seductive Powers (The Capes #1)
Author:  Rebecca Royce
Publication Date: November 5th 2013 by Fated Desires Publishing, LLC
Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:  Wendy Warner is a bit of an oddball. Raised in an orphanage, she’s found solace and friendship by watching the television show, Space Adventures, and participating in its fan clubs. Twice a month, Wendy comes to work dressed in a costume from the show that she wears to charity events. She’s been able to ignore the looks of distain from many of her coworkers, but when the president of the company gazes at her with something more, she knows she’s in deep.

Draco Powers rather likes the way the uniform hugs all her curves in the just the right places. He’s also a real-life Guardian who told the world that, yes, some people had superhuman abilities, but, no, they wouldn’t work for free or without health insurance. Some people refer to him with derision as the “Capitalist Guardian.” While Draco doesn’t care what he’s called, he’s also being hunted by a group called the Organization, whose motives are unclear and yet still cause death and destruction wherever they go.

The Organization has decided that Draco’s biggest weakness is the way he cares about his employees and has chosen Wendy as their next target. To save her, Draco will have to come to terms with his real feelings and the reason he’s long resisted complicated relationships…but he’s running out of time.



Normally, I don’t dig comics or superheroes but Seductive Powers was surprisingly an amazing, fun, and enjoyable read for me!!

The author, Rebecca Royce, creates a very clever twist on the whole superhero idea and it was exciting to see it pan out!

Draco, is our awesome superhero and Wendy, is his lovely (and dorky! Lol) assistant who happens to harbor a secret crush on him. But what Wendy does not know is that Draco feels the same way about her.

So, between battling your attraction for each other and trying to figure out who’s out to destroy all of the guardians (or SUPERHEROS as I like to call them) how will think all pan out?

I love loved this book!! It was ingenious and just different from all of the plot lines I’ve come across!!

My two qualms though: both Draco and Wendy’s characterizations are a bit naïve. And, I kind of wished there was more detail towards certain aspects of the plot.

Other than that, a vibrant and engaging story that will draw you in from the beginning!

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5-9
-Plot : 8.5
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 9
