Title: Belle Fury
This is one diva with killer moves…
Manhattan Ten, Book 3
Belle Fabian has worked her toes to the bone to become an internationally renowned ballerina. When the curtains rise on her career-making performance of Giselle, she brings down the house—literally.
Mid-dance, she manifests a superpower that nearly destroys the Metropolitan Opera House, wiping out a line of chorus girls and sending the audience dashing for the exits. As she flees the theater, she assumes the worst. Her hard-won career is over.
The Manhattan Ten’s leader is playing hooky with his new lady, so it falls to Red Ruin to round up the super-powered danseur. It’s just one small, bird-boned woman hiding in a convenience store. How hard could it be?
Their first encounter generates sparks that border nuclear and their chemistry sends Belle’s powers into overdrive, but their perfect storm of passion is marred by her suspicion that Ruin is holding back. That secret that could turn the sweet burn of Ruin’s lightning into a permanent scar on her heart.
Warning: Contains one lightning-hot hero and a not-so-blushing ballerina. May cause third-degree burns and spontaneous tango.

I really enjoy this series. The Manhattan 10 are meeting their matches one by one. Red Ruin is a very interesting character and I loved how the author wrote Belle to match up with him. Everyone is super stressed with their leader still in Las Vegas with Jenny but they are trying to cope. Red Ruin is left in charge and he feels like he is failing. When he meets Belle she helps distract him from trying to fill Tank’s shoes.
What I like about this series is not everyone gets their superpower the same way or at the same time. Some of the characters already have their powers when they come into the story and others just develop them. In this world most people develop their powers when they are a teenager. Belle was an exception as they did not show up until the night of her big show. She is super powerful and the she makes a big impression.
There was not really a villain in this story it was more of what will Belle do and a romance story but I can’t wait to see her come in contact with a villain. She will be able to do some serious damage. Another thing about this story was instead of her mother being happy for her she just wanted to bring her down. She wasn’t proud of her daughter for all of her accomplishments or supportive of her super powers she was the exact opposite. Who needs a villain in the story with a mother like that?
The story of Belle Fury and Red Ruin was a lovely read and I can’t wait to see what is next in the series. I personally can’t wait to see what is in store for Steel since he is constantly in trouble with either the ladies or his partying.
