Fiona Fine is the hottest fashion designer in Bigtime, N.Y.—literally. That's because she moonlights as Fiera, a superhero with superstrength and volatile, fire-based powers. As Fiera, she's also a member of the Fearless Five, the city's most powerful and popular superhero team.

However, Fiona's been through a lot lately, including the death of her fiancé, who was murdered by an ubervillain. But Fiona is ready to move on with her life, so it seems like good karma when she meets sexy businessman Johnny Bulluci at a friend's wedding.

But Fiona has little time to think of love thanks to Siren and Intelligal—the city's newest ubervillains who crash the wedding and then go on a city-wide crime spree. Fiona doesn’t know exactly what the ubervillains are up to, but if she doesn't figure it out, she's the one who just might go up in flames this time....

Read It, Track It is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.

If you’re a fan of Estep’s Elemental Assassin series then you will recognize the name Fiona Fine as the fashion designer that Fin loves to wear. In Hot Mama we get to learn about the designer that can throw fireballs.

Fiona is a fashion diva and a bit of a diva in the superhero world as Fiera. After loosing her fiancé to an ubervillain  a year ago she gets a second chance at love with the new superhero Johnny Angel. Their romance is super hot but that should be no surprise when you get a diva and playboy together.

I enjoyed getting to know Fiona more. She’s more than a diva underneath.

Hot Mama continues the campy fun of the Bigtime series and if you’re looking for a fun and light read you should check the series out. Estep does a great job recapping the events in the first book, Karma Girl so you could pick up Hot Mama with no problems.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
