I’ve been putting off reviewing because I’m unsure how to put my feelings into words. Bolt was a four star read for me, and I love Angel so it was not an easy four star. I just wanted more. More superhero, less sex. Which don’t get me wrong, the sex was great. I just didn’t connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. I’ve been Bolted, but I need more.

This was pretty adorable. The cover is a little bit deceiving as to what is inside but this was a super fun read. I loved the super hero take and the hidden identity, I haven't read a book like that before. 

I'll definitely be finishing this series.

Loved this book.   Reese and Emma have amazing chemistry that was electrifying and steamy. This was one of my first books and definitely will not be my last. Loved the passion and adventure that had me on the edge of my seat. Cannot wait to read more.

Loved this superhero story with a twist...Reece is the owner of a corporation and sexy to boot. One of his employees is blown away meeting him and when that meeting leads to the bedroom...wow!  But what she doesn't know is that he is also the superhero called Bolt, but when he saves her life, he comes clean.  Sparks fly and worlds collide. A fun, sexy romance, that you will enjoy completely!

I loved Reece Richards in Misadventures With A Superhero but with this book there is so much more to love!

This book is such an original read, I couldn't put it down. Sparks continue to fly between Emmaline Crist (Emma) and Reece. 

Reece, typical rich playboy doesn't want to be tied down but the electrical pull to Emma can't be ignored.

Lots of fun and witty banter between them. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read for sure!

I absolutely love Reese’s story. Bolt was an unexpected super hero just trying to do his best every day. It’s action packed and I can’t wait to read the next in the series.

Ahhhh! I need more! I enjoy Angel Payne's books and this was no exception. Now I need to know how this ends! A great read, definitely recommend it.

This is a love story pure and simple with a little bit of fantasy on the side.  There is plenty of sex if that is what you like but I found there was very little to this besides the love story.  The characters are hot for each other and are constantly having sex but there is very little substance to their relationship.  They say the right things to each other to make readers swoon but there really is no story here.  I find it hard to believe that a girl trying to escape from a well-to-do family to help people, would choose to work in a hotel.  There are lots of charitable jobs she could have chosen to truly help people.  Also, falling into Bolts arms, who happens to be a billionaire isn't quite escaping her status.  Quite frankly, there was little or no plot.  It was not for me.  Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for giving me an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

I am a fairly recent Angel Payne fan, having read the misadventures and secrets Il of stone series, which I enjoyed but this series is one I didn’t anticipate. 

Of course there is a rich hot man in the picture, by any other name wouldn’t be as great. Reece Richards is a gorgeous hunk of a playboy alla Manwhore, Who flits around with nothing more than money and sex on the brain. But strange events change his life forever. (No spoilers) sorry. 

No enter our heroine, she’s the daughter of a wealthy family. But has removed herself from that scene and found a job working at a hotel where she finds herself watching a news story about a masked superhero who’s named himself Bolt. She finds him very sexy, after she watches him disarm the assailants of a robbery. 

She hasn’t met her boss aka the owner of the hotel yet but when she does sparks fly and it sets up the rest of the book. 

It’s a DNM.

 DO NOT MISS. 

I received the free ARC for my honest review. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley.

So this novel came as a surprise. I thought it be more superhero than the erotica that it turned out to be. While I enjoyed the hot sex practically written on every page, I was really hoping we see Bolt in more scenes of action than lover. While he played the tortured hero quite well I was emotionally zapped by the end of this. He became obsessed with having the heroine near him and although it was sweet how he came to love her, I thought the sex and the emotional baggage was over kill.
I thought the heroine was spunky but she got sucked into Bolts sexual desire and we barely got to really explore her character. 
If you like your super heroes sexy with  a ferocious sexual appetite this would be for you.

Thank you Netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

As I started reading BOLT I expected to really enjoy it.  A nice girl falls for the filthy rich but socially awkward alter ego of a super hero. The tone is kooky and enthusiastic with lots of sex (the power dynamics of the sex are a tad erratic and weird IMHO).    

However the relationship becomes a little repetitive with the couple finding reasons to break up, freak out, and then get back together again. Neither the humor potential of being set in a hotel, not the action story of, well, being a superhero are greatly exploited. 

In fact, the plot ultimately doesn’t go anywhere much other than to the altar. I suspect that story worked better in its original form of many shorter parts than it does as a novel.

A great introduction to this series.  Not normally my taste with science twist. Now I just need to finish the series. Well written.

Good read. Interesting take on the creation of a superhero. The romance was very over the top but the sex scenes were perfect. I will be reading the other books in the series.

Who doesn’t love a good superhero? That’s excatly what Angel Payne delivers with Bolt. Get your cape ready, and step into your childhood fantasy, but it’s better than that childhood fantasy you had because this is a little more adult.

Prepare to suspend disbelief, then enjoy the rollercoaster ride between Mr Reece Richards and Miss Emmalina Crist as they battle evil and make sure the tourists to LA have a great stay at Richards Resorts. The sparks are definitely flying.

This was a nice expansion of the Misadventures of A Superhero. I really appreciated the extra scenes and fleshing out of the characters. This story was much more complete and I enjoyed it just as much as the original. The ending gave a promise of more and I can't wait to see where these two go.

Bolt is an unusual book, the main character is Bolt a superhero who after being abducted and held for six months by a mysterious group now has superpowers, though nothing is really explained as to the how, why or where this happens.
By day he is Reece Richards heir to Richards Resorts, known for bad boy attitude in business and with women.
When he meets Emmaline who works the night shift with other staff of his company sparks fly, literally.
My main problem was that everything was alluded to, no great reveal, no depth, also I have to say I was a little bored, mainly because 85% of the book were sex scenes between the two, the remaining 15% storyline.
From the description, this book had the makings of a good read unfortunately for me it just did not deliver.
My thanks to net galley and publisher for opportunity to review this book.

Explicit sex scenes in what might be an enjoyable superhero type story.  Those scenes, if removed, would leave you with an enjoyable short story.
