    One thought on “In Distress”

    1. 3.5 stars This is the latest addition to the author’s Superpowered Love series, paranormal romances about guys with superpowers (awakened) living among us regular, unsuspecting folk (sleepers). The powers vary around being able to control physical phenomena such as heat, electricity, or, in this case, cold. Any of the stories can be read as a stand alone. In Distress is Eddie Kim’s story. He’s a pretty-boy barista who gets rescued by Callum, a mysterious, chill dude who can lob frost-novas [...]

    2. Well-built iceman and the sassy, waiflike dreamer with a wickedly cold and sizzling hot rescueA wonderful short, heated story for fans of basic, elemental superpowers in a contemporary college town. Especially enchanting for those who like a geeky theme (D&D, Tolkien) around their hot, switch-hitting men (including a bisexual with a body of a football hooligan and a gender fluid waif of a man). Particularly rewarding for those who know it's not always the damsels in distress.Buff bi guy. Gen [...]

    3. In Distress was a must have story on my shopping list, as I've read most of Katey Hawthorne's books and have yet to be disappointed by them. One thing that makes her Superpowered Love series so good is how each book gives you little crumbs of world building that don't mean so much by themselves, but the more of the series you read, the more you appreciate this hidden society of awakened, people with various elemental super powers. It's kind of like reading a universe of one-shot comic books, and [...]

    4. Perhaps it is because I am a closeted Dungeon and Dragons player from way back in the day, or maybe it is because I absolutely adore shy redheads, but whatever the reason, In Distress by Katey Hawthorne now stands as my favorite in this series.The mix of Eddie–gender fluid, feisty and fall down funny–with the shy and noble Callum, was pure genius in my book. After Callum rescues Eddie from a fire, Eddie cannot forget his knight in zippered hoodie! The two come back together when outside forc [...]

    5. A Joyfully Jay review.4.25 starsIn Distress is the latest book in Katey Hawthorne’s fabulous Superpowered Love series. The books all take place in a shared world where the “awakened” have superpowers that allow them to control elements, such as cold, fire, and electricity. While some people know about them, for the most part they are keep a secret from the “sleepers” (the regular folks out there). In this case, Callum has the ability to control cold and ice, doing every from frosting a [...]

    6. I love this author! I got hooked reading Riot Boy and this latest novel will keep you entertained from the first page. I couldn't put it down it was just so much fun!Eddie Kim has been looking for his knight in shining armor for awhile. Imagine his surprise when a sexy red-headed, superpower named Callum with luscious lips rescues him from an apartment fire? Callum's ability to freeze anything he touches saves Eddie and he can't wait to see him again, but there are sinister forces around them at [...]

    7. I wrote this, but the romance novelist me! The latest in superpowered love is part of the Missed Connections collection for Loose Id--which means there's a definite theme at work here. Except that the "Missed Connections" ad Eddie's friends place to try and find the guy who rescued him from an apartment fire don't come up with quite the results anyone expected.Hot D&D action! Dice rolling! Coffee shops! Nefarious bad guy plots! Romance! Rescues! And, of course, superpowers.

    8. Rating: 4.25 stars out of 5Another story in the Superpowered Love series. Adorable characters, fast paced plot and delightful dialog. Terrific story that is a part of the Missed Connections collection from Loose id. I especially loved the sandwich board element used to reconnect the two characters.

    9. My first time reading this author's work and I loved it. This book is perfect when you want a light but not sweet read. I've never read a super hero type story but I'm going to read more now, especially from Ms. Hawthorne.

    10. Not up my alley at all. These was just too much going on in such a short book to really pull me into the story.

    11. Really enjoyed this. I can't get enough of the geeky, adorable boys that Katey writes, and I love that this story has a gender-fluid character who is comfortable and open about his identity.
