LOCAL GIRL SWEPT OFF HER FEET
Mild-mannered publicist Holly Phillips is unlucky in love. She's embarrassed beyond belief when the handsome stranger she meets in a bar turns out to be 'Ultimate Man' - a superpowered hero whose rescue attempt finds her hoisted over his shoulder and flashing her knickers in the newspaper the next day.
But when Holly's fifteen minutes of fame make her a target for something villainous, she only has one place to turn - and finds the man behind the mask holds a lot more charm than his crime-fighting alter-ego.
Can Holly find love, or is superdating just as complicated as the regular kind?

MEDIA REVIEWS

It's wonderfully different, romantic, quirky and has the warmth and humour I love from a Jenny Colgan novel - NOVEL KICKS

If you're looking for a fun escapist read this summer then Spandex and the City could be just the book for you - ONE MORE PAGE

Entertaining and weirdly refreshing . . . Oh, and it's funny. Like, really funny . . . the humour could light a forest fire - SFX

Charming and completely addictive - BOOKABIE

Want something different? Want a good laugh? Then this is the book for you . . . hysterically funny - ANNIE'S BOOK CORNER

In short: superheroes, romance, a dash of humour and a gentle dig at 21st century popular culture - BOOKS, LIFE AND EVERYTHING

I became hooked from the very first chapter by Ms. Colgan's easy, relaxing, writing style, and her delightful, playful plot, unlike any of her other work that I have read - WHISPERING STORIES

“Super ☺️☺️”

A great fun read - I really enjoyed the whole concept of the superhero story being told from the perspective of a potential girlfriend.
Interesting characters and a nice story arc - definitely a recommendation.
