    1. wildly nerdy, completely without reverence or delicacy, and explodey as fucklicious, in other words occasionally hilarious as it is unexpectedly sweet, this novel held my attention late into the night and into the next, until i was forced—forced, i tell you—to put it away when the words ran out.i loved it best when our superhero was trying to Normal, and our narrator was trying really hard not to be attracted to him. the kegger was a great time, and so was all the majestic frowning in conste [...]

    2. Took me an entire day to process my thoughts because after reading this, all I can think about wasNick in his skin-tight quantum armor or the lack thereofNick and his incinerating stare which doesn't burn you, well literally, but does spark something inside you. Be it this kindOr thisDoesn't really matter which kind, does it?Or his perfectly ogle-able butt or how he cooks with precision and perfection or both his butt and culinary skills in the same thought; either is desirableOr his despicable [...]

    3. I require more alcohol than I have on hand to review this properly. I think I should have had alcohol to even read it properly.I'm giving it a five for creativity, and breaking out of the box, because . . . *waves hands inarticulately* . . . just because.

    4. I LOVED THIS BOOK“I’m adorable, dude. A total dazzler. We talked about this, remember?” I loved every page of this story; every single ridiculous momentI want to wrap myself up in this story like a warm fuzzy blanket!It was silly - without being overly absurdIt was romantic - without being sappyJust normal guys in extraordinary circumstancesPlus a lot of hot, sexy, sweaty moments :)This book somehow managed to take a story about heroes and villains and turn it into a tale about regular peo [...]

    5. 4.5 stars, rounded up for imagination.In a world where Superheroes battle Villains - excuse me, Challengers - for control of a city and the right to do better city hall administration and force bad bookstores not to close good ones, there lives a man named Pat (don't call me Patrick). Pat is a young college student who wants to be an urban planner. His evening job is as a household administrator for billionaire superhero Silver Paladin, otherwise known as the far-too-serious and clueless Nichola [...]

    6. Wow, this story is one long nerdgasm, a brilliantly funny take on superheroes that reminded me of The Incredibles for its wry juxtaposition of superheroic and mundane and its affectionate and knowledgeable play on familiar conventions. You read this for Pat, whose awesome-dude-bro POV dominates the third-person narration. I highlighted about a hundred quotes, but practically every sentence just crackles with wit: Nick was way hotter than nine-tenths of the people Pat had previously not been ogle [...]

    7. ***DNF page 275 of 300***I think it's about time I DNF this. And I know it's ridiculous because there are barely 20 pages left. But. I. Can. Not. Go. On.There are some parts I wholeheartedly loved. And I laughed too hard sometimes. But there were times I honestly wanted to put a bullet in my head. I was so bored! The final scene (heroes against baddies, the great fight) was going on forever and I just couldn't take it anymore so I decided to interrupt and take a break. That was 2 months ago and [...]

    8. LOVED THIS, LOVED IT.Very funny, full of funny moments, funny lines.A wry, affectionate celebration of the absurdity of comic verses with loveable characters.Super-heroes aka Hoagies, Villans aka Challengers and part-time minions.There's some cute feelz and sexy-times.There's even special sorry for the inconvenience villan COOKIES!I want more of this verse. Read it all with a super-powered grin.--Pity the cover is so bland, doesn't to the book justice.

    9. I am going to do my best to describe this wonderful book. This book was funny, silly, hilarious, original, memorable, romantic, emotional, sexy, innocent, warm, and sweet! Kind of similar to a rainbow explosion in your very own bedroom.The entire time that I was reading this book, I had a big smile on my face. It did not falter for one second.I think it’s quite hard to take ideas that can be found in many different movies and books and turn them into something completely unique and original an [...]

    10. 4.25 starsThis was great! I laughed just about the whole way through. I was thoroughly entertained by Patpat and his heroic Nick. All the secondary characters were great and well fleshed out. The plot was OTT but not in a bad way; more tongue in cheek and self deprecating that never reached annoying levels. I would so love to read a sequel if the author ever thought to write one. Recommend!

    11. This is such a unique book, full of cliché geeky superhero fun. This is set in a alternate universe, same time period as present day, there are just Superheros, Super-villains, Aliens, magic crystals and time dimensions. Patrick is the son of a super-villain and he participates in part-time minion work for other super villains, due to his 'family connections'. Nicholas Anderson Aka Silver Paladin is a top Superhero of his time and is Patrick's employer, as you can imagine there are alot of awkw [...]

    12. Some truths are inalienable: the sun rises in the east, coffee is the unholy elixir of life, and android dolphins are the most awesome thing ever.Sadly, this book does not have android dolphins. :(But it does have more than its fair share of awesome. Also it has a mind control ray–which might not be mechanical dolphin minions, but is still pretty dang cool (even if it is somewhat dependent on a dubiously amoral crystal of cosmic power).Pat West (part-time minion/student/night-manager/pretend p [...]

    13. I tried my best to not laugh like a hyena in public while reading this book.I failed.Pat and Nick are genially well drawn characters in what seems to be a light story involving superheroes and villains. But in truth the book weaves a complex tale of perspectives, the ability to listen, tolerance of different points of views, subversion of social constructs and expectations, actions vs. words, and also: a pretty cool love story. All the while, being hilariously fun.Pat is the son of a notorious a [...]

    14. 3.5 challengers I feel like the Grinch. My friends all loved this book, but not me. I liked it. I laughed a lot. I also put the book down a lot. Worse, I didn’t miss it while I wasn’t reading. This book started great. That first 30%, maybe even the first 35%, I couldn’t stop reading. Then, I don’t know what happened, I just got bored. The one-liners and other funny Pat moments were still funny. The in between parts just started dragging. I noticed it the most when Pat was describing the [...]

    15. I found a new author to follow. Yes. Yes I did. I loved this!!!Because Because Because all of the wonderful things he wroteThis was outrageous, unbelievable, hilarious, off the wall and I LOVED IT. I hope Alex Gabriel's other books fall into the same line as the way this one was written, cause I know I will have a goofey smile, and laughter bubblin out of meMare~Slitsread

    16. **I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review**Probably 4.5, but I rounded upFirst I need to mention how incredibly incongruous the book cover is to the story. This cover is sleek, yet bland. All white with the word "Love" in this flowery-ish font honestly, if I were browsing through a bookstore, I would totally bypass it. And the story, wow! the story, is so different from any other MM book I have read lately. And having read the book, now I am so loving [...]

    17. After about reading 8%, the book will suck you in like quicksand, I LOVED the beginning of the story. This book is also very different from lots of other MM books, it’s creative and new. The narrative voice, the voice of a young villain who is starting to have feelings for a super hero, is crazy and funny and would cheer you up, and their relationship, even in the fantasy world of minions and heroes, feels realistic. These are some of the things that make this book so good.However, I should co [...]

    18. 4.5 starsI'm sad that I've come to the end of this - I don't want to leave these characters behind! I really want to read more in this world and would love to see a sequelThis was such a fun read with a really likeable MC. The whole premise of the heroes/hoagies and villains/challengers etc was a bit different to the usual. I loved the voice of Pat and the humour in general was just spot on. It was great to see Nick's up-tight character relax through the story and when the guys get together, the [...]

    19. Okay, this was the best way to kick off the New Year! Amazing, awesome, hilarious, sweet, this book had it all. Well developed and original characters that broke the mold and whom I cared about right off the bat. Side-splitting situations and lines that made me develop a near six pack. A world full of inventive contradictions and strong personalities that I lost myself in completely and want to move to right now. "'To make up for the inconvenience [of a challenger attacking the city], we'll be s [...]

    20. Not My BookThis is out of the box, off the wall, funny at times, so why the dnf? Because humor is one of those subjective make or break situations and the narrator of this book is too heavy handed with pointing out all the awkward, corny, whackiness that is going on. To the point where all he succeeds at is annoying me, then boring me, then making my eyes glaze over. YMMV. I only made it to 25%. Maybe magic happens after that, who knows?The pacing and story movement also felt oddly slow for the [...]

    21. [image error]I'm sure there's a valid reason why I waited so long to read this one, but for the life of me I can't remember. If like me you have a fondness for MM and at least an inkling of a geek soul, this spoof on superheroes and villains will be right up your street.This book is quirky, fast-paced and different to most things that are out there. It's absurdly funny and, actually, just pretty much absurd in general.

    22. This is one of those occasions where I am really sorry there is no half-star rating option on GR. I keep relying on the fact that by GR standards 2* means I find book ok which I do, so proceed with that in mind.So, this book has similar vibe like Pawn Takes Rook- on humorous side with comic effect of big fight scenes and lots of giggles. Told from Pat's pov*, the whole tone of novel fits his quirky character and it simply doesn't take itself seriously. It's pure fluffy fun.:)I am a huge fan of s [...]

    23. Sum of this book in one word: fun!I really enjoyed this one. This is an over the top superhero (almost) spoof. What do superheroes and supervillains do in their spare time? What if they wanted a hook up? What if they had a kid? This is the story of Patrick West, the youngest son of one of the greatest supervillains in history. Patrick's three older sisters are on track to follow in their mother's footsteps, but that isn't what Patrick wants for himself. He moonlights as an unseen gopher night ma [...]

    24. Oh, my first superhero M/M! I almost wanted to give it 5 stars, because it was really entertaining. The world-building was great, it felt very original, and had many funny ideas (minion rotation duty, the way superheroes/villains are portrayed).I really loved the romance part, the chemistry between Nick and Pat was perfect, and Pat was such a strange, but hilarious character (very good contrast to Nick). They had such a funny, honest and silly rapport between them. It was a pleasure to read.Also [...]

    25. Utterly adorable, quirky, and delightful adventure. Sparkling with humor, charm, and completely endearing characters. I would love to see more of these heroes and villains--erhm--I mean challengers. One of my favorite reads. Highly recommend!!*PS* I hated leaving the world of superheroes and villains, so I got a quick fix at Shousetsu Bang*Bang. The theme for issue #43 is heroes and villains. Check out the gorgeous artwork by DragonReine on the cover. Love!shousetsubangbang/mirr

    26. Funny, sexy and subversive take on the superhero genre. I can see the similarities other reviewers have noticed with The Student Prince, specifically in regards to the dialogue and the great relationship between the MC's. I don't think this is fanfic but Patrick/Nicholas do have that Merlin/Arthur vibe. Most of the novel is fast-paced, well-written and very enjoyable but the final battle and showdown got a little messy and didn't have quite the impact I thought I was going to get. Nice HEA.

    27. Oh my gosh, this was so fun! It was funny and unexpected in the best way. I loved Pat so much. He is a fantastically quirky narrator, from his inner monologue to his babbling episodes. Pat and Nick together are super hot and the romance had my tummy doing little flips. I will definitely be reading more from this author and I'm hoping more from this world of villains and superheros (uhm, challengers and hoagies) is to come.

    28. Reeeally cool adventure with a great romance between two fun characters and a lot of weird superhero-villain-situations to laugh about. The fun style, the cool bad-ass (female) characters, the silly adventures and overall hilariousness reminded me of The Student Prince, one of my favourite fanfics. This was even better.

    29. 3.75 StarsThis was a unique and clever story. Definitely entertaining, it did seem to drag a little and I would have liked the couple together more, it felt like they spent the majority of the story at odds or working separately.

    30. Ah, that awkward moment when your mom discovers that your boyfriend is her arch-nemesis…I think the main title doesn’t do this book justice. The (intentionally) too-long subtitle gives a better flavor of what you’re in for when you open the cover: “The Part-Time Evil Minion’s Guide to Accidentally Dating a Superhero.” Try to imagine the wonderful 2004 animated film “The Incredibles” as a gay romance novel. Add to this a smart, literate author who can create funny contemporary pro [...]
