Quad Shot of Love

Quad Shot of Love

Blurb: The magic of the Sawyer family’s extremely green thumbs comes straight from the land. But Bobby Sawyer’s expected superpowers don’t become a reality until he kisses his best friend, Mike Flint. That kiss moves the earth—literally.

When he moves to the city, leaving Mike behind, Bobby keeps his green thumb nimble by working in a garden center and uses his superpowers to help fight crime. He’s on a mission when a bomb explodes, leaving him seriously injured, forcing him to return to the family farm—the source of his strength—to recuperate.

While attempting to recover, Bobby realizes Mike is still the love of his life. But Mike is leery: Bobby left him once before. What if all Bobby needs is one more magical kiss?

Review: A sweet novella with an interesting twist on the superhero theme. Bobby’s whole family has powers and they all contribute. His father runs the farm that is the main source of their powers and where all of them return to recharge and heal.

Bobby and Mike were very cute and sweet together and I enjoyed their story. They were both good men who had allowed time and life to separate them. While Bobby had left for the city there was nothing that prevented Mike from pursuing him and slapping some sense into him. I was glad that the author didn’t create a lot of unnecessary drama and angst.

A story of how one man went out into the world and realized that he’d left his heart and hope for happiness behind. And how he goes about convincing that love to give him another chance. A fun and quick read that will have you smiling.
