By day she writes comic books. By night, she lives them. MG Martin lives and breathes geek culture. She even works as a writer for the comic book company she idolized as a kid. But despite her love of hooded vigilantes, MG prefers her comics stay on the page. But when someone in LA starts recreating crime scenes from her favorite comic book, MG is the LAPD's best--and only--lead. She recognizes the golden arrow left at the scene as the calling card of her favorite comic book hero. The thing is...superheroes aren't real. Are they? When too-handsome-for-his-own-good Detective Kildaire asks for her comic book expertise, MG is more than up for the adventure. Unfortunately, MG has a teeny little tendency to not follow rules. And her off-the-books sleuthing may land her in a world of trouble. Because for every superhero, there is a supervillain. And the villain of her story may be closer than she thinks...… (mere)

I can easily envision this book as the pilot episode for the next prime time cop series. If you like, say, Bones or Castle, then this book is right for you.

I enjoyed it. It was a fun read filled with comic con fandom Easter eggs that certainly didn't get past me, which makes me wonder if I'm more of a pop culture nerd than I think I am. Sometimes the pop culture references felt a little piled on, but that's okay. This isn't meant to be a deep story with Pulitzer Prize potential.

The romantic tease throughout this piece also reminded me of those lighthearted cop shows we see on TV. I'm not much of a romance fan, so be forewarned. I thought that elements of the budding romance went against MG's character.

Speaking of character, most of them are familiar stereotypes from the comics convention world. You could criticize the story for that reason alone, but each character served his/her purpose in a story that's really meant to be mainstream anyway.

By all means, pick up this book if you're looking for a light and entertaining read where you don't have to think about it too much. It's clever, and I give it four stars for the right audience. ( )

Predictable and repetitive. Sufficient for a fluffy read when you need a break or have nothing better going on. ( )

This was my Amazon First Reads whatever month it was offered. I finished it, which isn't always the case for my picks. It was a quick, breezy read and light, cheeky fun...an alt-chick crime caper romance of sorts.

The main character, MJ, is mildly irritating, but the comic book setting is unique and the cultural references give it a little bit of quirkiness. It was formulaic, but not in a way that I resented, if you know what I mean.

Probably wouldn't go out of my way to read any more entries in the series, but I don't resent the few hours I spent seeing how the story would unfold. ( )

MG is a comic book writer, but she’s unhappy—she wants a promotion; her colleagues don’t get her; and her parents have disowned her after she pursued comic books instead of the law. Then a sexy cop decides that she might know something about a seemingly comic-inspired crime, and things get even more complicated. I understood MG’s hostility to mundanes, and her worries about her otherwise-male team’s ability to accept her as a woman, but she also seemed very clueless about certain dynamics (including clues to the identity of the real-life comic avenger). More to the point: this is a mystery with a comic-book industry background, and I’m basically not a crime story person. ( )
