Review Even Villains Fall in Love by Liana Brooks

Title: Even Villains Fall in Love
Author: Liana Brooks
Source: Request
Genre: Sci/Fi Romance (Contemporary, Comedy)
Length: Novella (ebook 104pgs)
Publisher : Breathless Press



A super villain at the top of his game must choose between the world he wants and the woman he loves. 



If you believe the rumors you know that Doctor Charm, the wickedly sexy super villain, retired in shame seven years ago after his last fight with the super hero Zephyr Girl. The fact that the charming Evan Smith—father of four and husband of the too-beautiful-to-be-real Tabitha—bears a resemblance to the defeated Doctor is pure coincidence. And, please, ignore the minions.

Everything is perfect in the Smith household, until Tabitha announces her return to work as a super hero. Evan was hoping to keep her distracted until after he rigged the presidential election, but—genius that he is—Evan has a backup plan. In his basement lab, Evan has a machine whose sole purpose is keeping Tabitha hungry for him.

But children and labs don’t mix. The machine is broken, and Tabitha storms out, claiming she no longer knows him. World domination takes a back seat to meeting his daughters’ demands to get Mommy back right now. This time his genius isn’t going to be enough—he’s going to need both his evil alter-ego, and the blooming super abilities of his children to save his wife. But even his most charming self might not be enough to save their marriage.
 What is the difference between a villain and a hero?"
 
Although a bit predictable Even Villains Fall in Love was a cute read.  Between the antics of Evan and Tabitha's hilarious daughters and the absolute bone melting love that the supposed 'super villain' shows for his wife I couldn't get enough.  

It's the perfect feel-good read. You'll laugh, cry and, amazingly enough, root for a happily ever after for a super villain!

 *one of my favorite conversations in a book. EVER.*
"Have you thought about where to go?"
"I was going to start here." He moved on hand inward of her hip. "Then work my way down--"
She swatted his hand away. "I meant a job, Evan."
He frowned. "You went to work today, sweetie, what else is there?"
"I want you to get a job!"
"I have a job."
Tabitha rolled her eyes. "You lock yourself in the basement and fiddle with a computer."
"It's a job."
"I want you to get out of the house.  You need friends."
"I have friends."
"Minions don't count."
"If I can watch movies with them, they count."

"Daddy!" Blessing screamed from upstairs. "Mommy's in a fight!"

Evan whipped around. "Hert?"

"We didn't schedule anything, Master."

He took the steps three at a time. "What's going on?"

"Mommy's in a fight," Maria repeated calmly.

Picking up Maria so he could claim a spot on the couch, Evan watched as Zephyr Girl whipped around a giant lizard thing, the unholy offspring of Barney the dinosaur and Godzilla. Zephyr Girl darted in, pulling a trip wire past the reptilian legs and dodging a heavy fist.
His heart skipped a beat. Right after Election Day, he was finishing the body armor he'd planned for her. It hadn't seemed necessary when she was a stay-at-home-mom, just kinky in a fun way.
A heavy green claw swiped downward, and Zephyr Girl didn't move fast enough. She bounced off a building, her neck snapping back.

"Mom!" Delila rushed to the TV screen. Tiny fingers fanned over the live image of Zephyr Girl plummeting toward the ground.

"Move back!" Angela ordered, pulling on her sister's shirt. "Let me see Mommy."

"Move, Tabby. Move, baby," Evan whispered. He hugged Maria tighter. The TV needed to be off. 

Now. The girls shouldn't watch their mom die. He shouldn't watch his wife die. Anger burned through the fear. Whoever created that abomination was going to pay.
