Zachary has a dilemma. His girlfriend, Reese, has a special birthday coming up soon and he has absolutely no clue what to get for her. It doesn’t help that Zach does not share or really understand Reese’s biggest hobby—comic books, superheroes and everything that goes with them. Zach raids Reese’s DVD collection for inspiration, and what he finds there gives him an idea…possibly the best one he’s ever had.

Sure, Reese has fantasized about her favorite superheroes. All those muscles and rakish smiles are to die for. She didn’t think Zach would ever really understand, though. But he proves her wrong in the best way possible.

This story appealed to the geek in me. I grew up reading comic books so anything Marvel themed is going to get me interested. The whole idea of having your boyfriend dress up in your favorite superheroes and then surprise you with an entire afternoon of sexy, cosplaying goodness is very appealing.

I thought Lucy did a really good job of incorporating plenty of the Marvel geekiness into the story and managed to really bring a level of authenticity to the story.

When Zach visited the costume store and when Reese described her experience going to the comic book store, I had flashes scenes from The Big Bang Theory when the guys would visit the comic book store and the girls would go along, the other guys in the comic book store would just stop and stare and get all weird. This was definitely a fun story to read.
