Reece Richards was the typical bad boy billionaire. He came from an affluent empire and he loved to test limits. There was no such thing as too much parties, drugs or sex. One significant night, the betrayal from someone who made him lose hope, changed his life forever. The playboy who was a favorite of the gossip rags was no more. In his place was a man who wanted to atone for his errant ways and to make his mark on mankind. He was a man who trusted no one and therefore had no one. He was a man ...more

hate to rate this because I almost couldn't finish the book. It was difficult and trying, but I eventually did.

I knew it was a superhero book, but was hoping the writing and storyline would draw me in. It didn't. I also found their were way too much sex scenes. More substance please and a lot of threads that were left hanging and unfinished.

This author was knew to me so I was optimistic, but not sure if I would try another book by this author.

Reece Richards aka Bolt, a rich spoiled playboy by birth, a Super Hero by fate.
Emmalina Crist, running from her life of privilege, a life she doesn't want, moves to LA and takes a job as a Reservations Manager at Hotel Brocade, Reece's family owned chain of hotels.
From the moment, Reece and Emma met while working, there were sparks, turning quickly to fill blown flames. Can these flames continue to burn, or will something or someone from the past douse the flames with ice water?

I had already read Misadventures with a Superhero so I was pretty sure I was going to love this one too. Emma works at one of the hottest downtown LA Hotels which happens to be owned by Richards Resorts and managed by Reece Richards. There is chemistry between these 2 from the very beginning. Reece was kidnapped about a year before and used as a science experiment for the Consortium. His body now has electricity running through it that he can harness and use. He is hoping in his spree to stop cr ...more

If you're a fan of Angel Payne or you have already been introduced to and fallen in love with Bolt in Misadventures of a Superhero, you're going to want to pick up this book. Ms. Payne has expanded that story and has additional parts to release after this title.

Emma works the nightshift at the Brocade, a trendy LA hotel. Reece's family has Richards Resorts, and Reece is the man in charge of the Brocade. By night, Reece is a supercharged superhero having been zapped in an experiment by the Conso

What Angel Payne started as a short book for the Misadventures series has turn into a epic sexy superhero saga that any book love will drool over. Reece Richards didn't choice this but after years of being the Playboy bad boy his a protector. A God. As Bolt he protects and serves LA but never believe he can have more that karma served him the ultimate punishment. That is until Emma aka The Velvet bunny comes into the picture causing a electric shock to Reece's heart he never thought possible. An ...more

While sci-fi is not usually my cup of tea, Angel Payne writes with just enough romance and seduction to make this story completely worth it. Reese and Emma are not only making their boss/employee romance work, they are also fighting bad guys as Reese’s alter ego Bolt uses his superpowers for good. But can the romance blossom when Bolts identity is made public? Or will Emma walk away not only from Reese but from her job as well. With great characters and a storyline that had me hooked from the op ...more

Do you like hot romance? Do you like a guy in leathers and a mask? You will love this book. Reece is the ultimate superhero, not just in the saving the world type. But oh does he do that. He also saves Emma, in more than one sense. This is a hot, fast paced book that leaves you wanting more. I was never big on superhero stories but this one has me addicted. Can't wait for more of this epic love story.

I am a huge Angel Payne fan but superhero is just not my thing. I did give it a try and read the book and it is a good book if you like this type of book. I know people are probably going to say, well duh it is superhero and I knew that going in bu,t because it was Angel writing it I did read it. I'm not going to dog her out just because this genre is not for me. Sorry Angel, I have to stick to your other books, I'm not superhero material.

This could have been a great book if the main characters would have talked between them instead of just having sex.

If you are familiar with the Misadventures series then you know that you got a little tease of Reece (Bolt) in Misadventures with a Super Hero. Can I say how much I love that Angel Payne expanded upon it and gave us more sexy Reece. This is a hot and steamy with that touch of action. Reece, man I loved him. I loved seeing the changes from start to end in him. The change is all good. Emmalina is a strong and sweet. She brings out the best sides of Reece. You can't help but want to be drawn into t ...more
I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley.

This story started off with a bang. I couldn't put it down. Its filled of sexual tension and steamy scenes. This is the second book I have read by this author. The first book was okay but this one damn she has change my mind on her writing.

Reece is a rich playboy. When he was young all he thought about is partying and sex. One night of partying has changed his life forever. Yes this story resembles a marvel or comic movie. So t

More storyline and less sex please. Maybe I am missing the point but what happened to Angelique and her cronies did Bolt frighten them away without the reader’s knowledge? Maybe they return in part 4? I got the idea that Emma and Reece were passionately attracted to each other but there is a limit on how many Uhhh’s and Ohhh’s a reader can take! I accessed this title by accident, and although I finished the book I will not be reading more in the series.

Bolt is the sexiest superhero to come along in a long time! Reece & Emma’s romance steams up the pages. Not your typical superhero book. Sure he puts away bad guys, but he does his best work between the sheets. Or anywhere else he wants! An electrifyingly sexy read!

Scorching, electrifying, smoking hot paranormal romance! Many thanks to #NetGalley and #Waterhouse Press for the opportunity to review an ARC of #Bolt in return for this honest feedback!

In #Bolt, a mysterious organization turns a human into an extraordinary energy source. The background on why the person was chosen for this experimentation remains somewhat hazy throughout but it's clear pretty early on who is Bolt and that his previous playboy ways are now curtailed by the strange blue lightning

*The writing is dumbed down and annoying, it doesn’t fit the genre (unlike the airhead tone of Fashion Victim which I forgave given the nature and setting of that book). I lived in LA. Just because people talk with a SoCal accemt and vocabulary doesn’t mean they should sound this stupid. I could not take the female protagonist’s POV. She was either too insecure or too horny. Right from the get-go. Hard to care about the sex scenes when I don’t care or even know the characte

Woah! Okay, so this book is so hot and steamy, it had me squirming in my seat!



Reece aka Bolt is living the life as a bad boy playboy, living his life as one big party full of women, sex and drugs but fate struck and Reece found himself as a superhero, a protector. He didn’t choose to be a superhero, fate placed it in his hands. He didn’t believe he was worthy of more than what he had, that his life was nothing but multiple women and sex and that he was being punished

Having already read Misadventures of a Superhero, I knew I would love this just as much. I was right it is smoking hot, alot of chemistry between the characters.

Emma works on the night shift at one of the hottest downtown LA hotels, which is owned by Richards Resorts and run by the 'playboy' Reece Richards.

They cross paths during one of Emma's night shifts when Reece turns up unexpectedly at the hotel. You can see the chemistry and sparks between them from

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.

I am loving this series so far! Bolt Volume 1 has all the first 3 parts together. I prefer physical books over ebook so I had to buy it. Reece is a playboy who ends up being betrayed by his ex and is experimented on which causes him to accidentally become the superhero Bolt. While people around him can feel a strange difference about him and try to avoid him, he falls for manager Emma, who can't stop being pulled by him but tries super hard to resist. Not long after, they both give in to their d ...more

I enjoy a super hero story line and I really love Bolt aka Reece Richards. If you read Misadventures of a Super Hero, this book expands the content of that book. Emmalina Crist is attracted to her boss of a trendy hotel, although she does not want to be and Reece is very enamored of Emma even if he feels there is no place in his world for a relationship. This book has tons of feels for me, and both Reece and Emma captivated me. There is so much adventure as Bolt and Emma tackle the bad guys and ...more

Struck by Lightning...

Offer me a story that is sci-fi, has a Super Hero dressed in leather and a mask and is 100 Shades of Hot, and I am jumping on that train in a heartbeat.

Reece Richards is much more than the head of one of the most cutting edge hotels in L.A. He sheds his 3-piece suit for a super hero ensemble when low life criminals call. Up to this point he has had no choice but to accept this life of isolation with no hope of ever having a chance to find someone to care for or fall in lov
