The Mod Woman June Book Club Pick
Happy 1st of June everyone! It's time to announce June's book club pick. And it's a fun one! Andrea Vernon and the Corporation for Ultrahuman Protection, by Alexander C. Kane and Bahni Turpin. I hesitated to pick this book since it is an Audible exclusive and only available via their site. BUT - if you do not have Audible, you can sign up for their 30-day free trial and download the book for free! Which is a pretty sweet deal if you ask me. If you do have an Audible account you can use a credit or purchase the book for $14.95
Andrea Vernon always thought she would spend her life living in Paris writing thought-provoking historical novels all day and sipping wine on the Seine all night. But the reality is she's drowning in debt, has no prospects, and is forced to move back to Queens, where her parents remind her daily that they are very interested in grandchildren.
Then, one morning, she is kidnapped, interviewed, and hired as an administrative assistant by the Corporation for UltraHuman Protection. Superheroes for hire, using their powers for good. What could possibly go wrong?
Her coworkers may be able to shoot lightning out of their hands or have skin made of diamonds, but they refuse to learn how to use the company's database. She has a swell hook-up buddy relationship with The Big Axe, but he's pushing to go exclusive. Then there's the small matter of a giant alien space egg hovering over Yankee Stadium, threatening civilization as we know it.
Will Andrea find contentment in office drudgery? Can she make a life together with a guy who's eight feet tall and never puts down his axe? And will she ever figure out how her boss likes her coffee?
Andrea Vernon and the Corporation for UltraHuman Protection marks the debut of a super-funny new voice in fiction.
Alright folks! Happy reading - or in this case - listening!
