Kevin knows Alex’s flaws better than most—after all, he’s been the man’s sidekick for two years now. And he’s been lusting after the hero for nearly as long, once he got over the overwhelming urge to beat Alex over the head with something. Unfortunately, the urge still reappears on occasion, and their latest case is stretching both of their tempers to the limits. So the last thing Kevin needs to add to the mix is a budding romance, but that’s exactly what happens when Alex kisses him. That is, if you can call a humping, grinding, passionate embrace a mere kiss.
Before they can work out their issues, though, they have to take care of an obnoxious villain. Then there’s the little matter of Kevin’s secret.
When Alex is abducted, it’s Kevin’s turn to play hero. But taking on that role means risking everything for the man he’s come to love—his career, his friends and, quite possibly, his sanity.

Loving Someone Extraordinary is one of those books that slipped my attention. It’s been on my reader for ages, but it wasn’t until Janna got her whip out, that I remember I read it, but had not written a review. In the sense of better late than never, here’s the review for Loving Someone Extraordinary.
Loving Someone Extraordinary is a funny light read about superheroes and their sidekicks.
The story goes pretty much as the blurb says and it’s very amusing to read how incredibly clueless Alex is and Kevin as well to some extent. If this wasn’t meant to be funny, I’d be tempted to hit them over the head with something hard. Or maybe write a great big sign!
Because this is a story about superheroes and their sidekicks, the characters are a little blown out of proportion, a little more than they should be. It’s a good thing it works, or it would have really taken away from the story. The story itself reminded me a bit of Mimi Riser’s Sylver and Steele series in the way the characters are written and out there.
The plot itself is fairly simple and Loving Someone Extraordinary is not a story with depth or layers, but is a funny light short story to read on the beach or on a rainy day. There really isn’t much plot and it pretty much goes as the blurb says, so I won’t expand on that. It’s Kevin and Alex that keep the story going.
All in all a good story to read if you want something funny and light.
