"...This book was truly a charmer.."

Even Villains Fall In LoveEven Villains Fall In Love by Liana Brooks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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 2012 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.




This book was too much fun. It was a quick read, I loved the plot, I loved the characters, and I loved the writing style. Liana Brooks has a true fan in me!

The first line of the book hooked me. “I knew from the first time I saw my wife that I wanted her naked”. My first thought to myself was, what a way to start a book! The fun only continued from there. In Even Villains Fall In Love, Evan, the storyteller and a retired super villain, has to reclaim his wife (who is a retired superhero) and make her love him again when the machine that has been controlling her and telling her that she is madly in love with him, breaks. The chaos that ensues as a result is hilarious...and darling. The couple have four little quadruplet girls who are as cute as can be and have some of the best lines in the book. I mean, this book was truly a charmer!

Evan was funny and kind of sexy, in that I’m-the-bad-guy-but-I’m-also-a-dork sort of way. Tabitha, his wife, is beautiful and has her own quirky sense of humor, and the Quads: Angela, Maria, Delilia, and Blessing are just dolls. Walking, talking, messing-up-perfectly-good-experiments dolls, but they are adorable all the same...and have a few super powers of their own.

If you are into superhero/supervillain type fantasy books, this one is for you. You’ll laugh, roll your eyes, and shake your head at all the funny, ridiculous things that happen, but you’ll love it. I know I did.
