Publisher's Summary

Some heroes aren't born...they're built.
Westley Worthington has found the love of his life in Cordelia Cross. She's even convinced the carefree billionaire to abandon his life of excess. His only problem is, ever since the injury that changed him forever, she's been pulling away, making excuses to avoid being alone with him.
Determined not to let this one slip away, West vows to use his newfound abilities to be a force for good in Glacier City and win back the respect and admiration of the woman he loves.
Cordelia Cross has never felt about anyone the way she feels about Westley Worthington. He's also the head of the company that can restore the normal life that was snatched away from her wheelchair-bound sister, Jessica. Cordelia wants to take things to the next level with West, but she knows too much about his checkered past to trust the outcome of a romantic relationship with the notorious playboy. Determined not to risk her sister's future, Cordelia decides her only option is to cool things off with West, even if it means breaking her own heart.
Passions ignite when the two are forced to work together to save their friend, Edward Dalton, from the clutches of a top-secret paramilitary operation that is running bizarre experiments with human and canine DNA. Will West's attempt at being a hero be enough to make Cordelia love him again? Can Cordelia resist her feelings for West long enough to help her sister? Will she lose her chance with West in the process?
Find out in Augmented, the second full-length novel in the Building a Hero trilogy from best-seller Tasha Black.

Great Story, Characters and Pefromance!

Augmented, book two in Building a Hero series, was a great addition to the series and picks up where book one leaves off. While I enjoyed this story, and will definitely listen to the next book, I felt the story lacked compared to book one. Book two ends on a cliffhanger with a few unanswered questions so book three will certainly have a lot to wrap up.

Action/Suspense: There's a good mix of action, suspense, and drama but more on the mild to medium side.

Characters: Great character development! This story is told from multiple POV's, and really develops each of the characters. While it appears West and Cornelia relationship may be on the rocks, we learn more about Dalton and the female who wants to study his condition. By far Jessica, Cornelia's younger sister, is best character and my favorite! I love her positive outlook, and all the crazy things she says.

Romance/Sex: The romance is fairly mild; however, there is an in-depth scene.

Narration: Mason Lloyd does an awesome job narrating this story. Each character has their own voice and is consistent between the first two books. I love how he projects the different emotions throughout the story. Great job!

Credit/Sale/Review Copy: Whispersync deal! I love a great sale, and honestly I could not use a credit for such a short story.

Looking forward to book three!

They are all performe quite well..but Jess is still my fave!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

this would be an interesting movie..but I hate this question Audible...stop asking me it please...lol


Any additional comments?

I really like book one, so I bought book 2 right away...this is a solid 2nd book...I can see there is going to be a little war over this prosthetic technology...and there is something really weird going on a that zoo...maybe some Lycan's in the making? West needs to stop being such a jerk....and He and Cordelia need to communicate if things are going to work...Now Dalton...he is a good guy...I hope he can figure out how to control his gift...because I think he has a lot to offer....I like how this book is on the verge of almost a comic book feel..because we definitely have some super heroes in the making here! Great series so far, I hope #3 is available soon!
