"Breaking Bad" [Midnight Justice Series, Book 3] by Jodi Redford
My Book Summary : After recently finding out about her true heritage Ruby plans to become the superhero she was always meant to be. However, she soon realizes that being a superhero is a whole lot harder than it looks, especially when she finds herself trapped by her uncle’s minions.
Teague doesn't have any plans of becoming a superhero. All he wants to do is exact his revenge on the man who murdered his mentor and friend years ago. Nevertheless, when he finds out that Ruby needs his help he can't just turn away. Therefore, he plans to use his powers to help Ruby get out of a jam then they'll be able to go their separate ways, right? Wrong! Especially if Ruby has anything to say about it!
It doesn't help that they were both caught on tape using their powers. Now Teague feels obligated to protect Ruby, even from her do-gooding-self and even if it means becoming the hero, he never wanted to be. But can they save Earth before they're caught and it's all too late?
My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, this is an electric story about two people that are coming to terms with their pasts while they're trying to save the world from an evil overlord's rule. In some ways, this novel reminded me of Marianne Mancusi's "Moongazer." Mostly in the way, that they are both novels about a heroine learning about whom they truly are while trying to protect their world from a corrupt government/overlord.
I liked the characters and definitely enjoyed the interplay between Teague and Ruby! I just wish the plot was a bit thicker so I could have gotten into it a bit more. Overall, it’s a fun, light, sex heavy novel that was easy to enjoy!
I recommend it to anyone who is fans of Jodi's other books!

Book Teaser(s) :
Teague pressed into her, the firm, muscular planes of his chest and abdomen contouring to her back like the delicious, masculine version of memory foam. “How about now? Feeling anything?”For more information on this book and/or any other books by Jodi, then please check out her website.
She gulped, not entirely certain he wasn’t referring to the thick bulge of his erection prodding the base of her spine. “Err...possibly.”
“Good.” His hands coasted along her upper arms and over her shoulders. He continued following the slope of her neck, his fingers a maddening butterfly dance along her overheated skin. She shook as he traced the shell of her ears before combing his fingers through her hair, sifting the strands over her shoulders. His deep inhalation stirred the fine hairs at her temple, and she closed her eyes on a shaky breath.
“Do you feel it, Ruby?” His hands retraced their path, this time moving beneath her arms. “Do you feel our energy weaving?”
Oh my God. She did. Teague’s power was a sensual caress along her synapses. It licked at her own energy, engaging it in an erotic tango that felt...like sex. She bit her lip to stifle a moan. ~ within Chapter 8
