Alec Archer isn’t just a superhero... he’s a survivor.

* He’s survived being harpooned by the megalomaniacal captain of a steampunk airship.
* He’s escaped being drowned by a sex-crazed mermaid.
* He’s narrowly avoided being reduced to a glowing pile of mush by a radioactive grandma.
* Even Kryptonite probably couldn’t hurt him.
(His inability to think before he opens his mouth, on the other hand, will probably get him killed.)

By day, Alec is the owner of a successful male escort service, living an idyllic life with a husband he adores. By night, Alec is the only man strong enough, fast enough, and svelte enough to reluctantly squeeze into the skintight turquoise mantle of the superhero known as the Whirlwind.

No matter how many supervillains choose Centerport to kick-off their crazy schemes of mass destruction and world domination, the Whirlwind will always be there to defeat them.

And he will always look fabulous in tights!

 

Fabulous in Tights was a fun MM fantasy read. Alec comes across really well as a character and I immediately felt invested in him and his story. The side characters are also nicely fleshed out. The plot was a typical superhero tale and that worked well, especially with the strong injection of humour present throughout. I did see the twist coming ahead of the reveal, but that in no way spoilt my enjoyment of the story. I would certainly be happy to read on in this series, to find out where Alec's next adventure will take him. 4.5 stars from me.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
