Stephanie Holbrook has finally found a job she really loves: working as an assistant to Conrad Finch in a small regional theater that’s about three dollars and a power outage from being torn down. Stephanie wishes her love life would be as perfect as her job. She’ll be thirty on her next birthday and she still hasn't found Mr. Right. According to Stephanie, Mr. Right has to be strong and brave, with great values and good looks. A guy a lot like Superman.
When Doug Castleberry shows up at her niece’s birthday party dressed as Superman, Stephanie is positive he’s not the real deal. Sure, he’s great with kids and he’s kind of cute. But he’s just a high school teacher making extra money by dressing up for kid’s parties. Hardly the strong, brave, and drop-dead gorgeous guy she’s looking for.
As the theater teeters ever closer to the edge of disaster, Doug proves to be a better man than Stephanie had ever imagined. Could he be the Superman she’s been looking for all along?
To start off I want to say one this about this story... It is freaking adorable! Oh my freaking gawd! I loved reading about everything that Stephanie and Doug had to go through. It had enough drama to keep me interested, but it was definitely a happy-go-lucky story. I hadn't read one of those in a while, and I enjoyed it a lot.
With that being said, there are grammatical issues. I don't just mean misuse of commas, which I've noticed is commonplace in the books I've read lately. There are misuse of words. One example, the word "libel" was used instead of "liable". Those are two very different words.
The story was captivating enough that I was able to ignore most of the editing issues. It's a cute story and, if you don't mind some grammatical issues, I recommend it to people who enjoy fluffy romance.
