Review : Karma Girl by Jennifer Estep
About the book:
Since her exposes have catapulted Carmen to stardom, hobnobbing with modelizing millionaires and famished fashionistas is all in a day’s work. But, when Carmen gets the scoop of her career, her life comes crashing down around her. And even Striker, the city’s sexiest crime-buster, may not be able to save her…
Carmon Cole, a reporter, catches her fiancée and her best friend in a very..umm…’About to make out’ act just 30 minutes before her wedding! If that’s not enough, she also finds out that her fiancée is a superhero and her best friend/maid of honor is an ubervillain!! Totally devastated, heartbroken and betrayed she clicks their photo in that “act”, marches straight to her office, prints and exposes them on the first page of the next day’s newspaper! What else can a reporter girl do in such a situation? She takes a vow to unmask each and every superhero and ubervillain of world so that they can never ever hide the truth and cheat anyone. Never any other girl will suffer what she suffered..! Obviously, unmasking the superheroes and the ubervillain helps her get many offers from other newspapers. And thus, she climbs the ladder of success by revealing the identities of these heroes and villains and comes to Bigtime, NY. This is the city where worlds most powerful superheroes, ‘The Famous Five’ and ubervillains, ‘The Triads’ reside. Here she is been hired by the worlds most popular newspaper called ‘The Expose’. She reveals the identity of one of the members of “The Famous Five”. After this particular incident her life changes forever and is caught in the epic-battle of the superheroes and ubervillians. I guess that’s enough to tell you all about the story. To know what happens next, you will have to read the book.
I loved Carmen Cole; she is a nosy reporter, smart, funny, and not perfect at all. But, she also realizes her mistakes and tries to correct them. This girl believes in ‘Karma’ - the effects of a person's actions that determine his/her destiny. And here comes the hero. He is sensitive, kind-hearted, hot, and yes, super sexy!
This book is filled with excitement, dangers, twists and amidst all-- romance!! ‘Karma Girl’ is a perfect escape to another world full of superheroes, Ubervillians and of course normal humans. A super sexy book with a cool plot. This book is the first in the series and is a standalone. Just can’t wait to read the next one in the series now :)
