5.0 out of 5 stars Looks like I have a penchant for slightly egocentric, snarky and sassy character’s... I'm hooked 20 July 2016
By SW and BK - Published on Amazon.com

Looks like I have a penchant for slightly egocentric, snarky and sassy character’s because this is what I got in the first of Nicholas Bella’s Gay Vigilante series, Origins, and I’m hooked.

Apparently all ‘super heroes’ have to have a beginning story – the how or the why of it. Not too much back-story in this episode but this is only the starting of Cobra’s (aka Eric’s) story. Eric and his faithful side-kick, Jordan. What a couple.

Of all the characters in all the series Nicholas has created to date, these guys are by far the most ‘normal’, even if one is a nerdy computer genius and the other is sporting the ability to transform his appearance, it would seem to anything he wants. We get to meet him in the opening scenes as a woman! Of all things.

Loved his self-assured demeanour, his sass, his spunk and his super strength. Super quick healing and impenetrable skin too. Makes for one successful vigilante hero.

Eric and Jordan’s loveable banter really caught my fancy, their rude camaraderie even when calling each other out on their diverse sense of fashion. There was enough vanity and insecurity on Eric’s part to tone down his arrogance, making him wholly likeable. And the glasses – for all that he had come into some amazing powers – we as yet know not how – Eric is not perfect. Defective eyesight helps him retain his humanity if not his humility. Anyway, he mostly brags to Jordan, so what’s the harm. Jordan for all that they are not a proper couple – Really? Come on guys, you have joint bank accounts. Who’s in denial? – while worshipping the ground Eric walks on, can still hold his own. Sexual exclusivity comes secondary to emotional attachment and conscientiousness over sexual safety in this relationship. And a loving relationship it ‘really’ appears to be.

Carless, jobless, borderline itinerant, they need money. One of the relatable draws in this ‘Origins’ story. In steps their ‘employer’, a big corporation who has undoubtedly had information stolen from them. They hire Eric to take get it back from the evil Mr Henley while stipulating minimum torture and no murder. Hmmm, I’m suspicious. A corporation that is do-gooding? Am waiting with bated-breath for them to make a further appearance in future episodes. Maybe? For my part, I construed their parting shot to Eric, a little menacing.

Definitely this book reflected that superhero comic book feel. Fast paced, vengeance-wreaking, heroic, intriguing, humorous, and super-sexy. Well maybe that last is not quite so comic book, but this is a Nicholas Bella episodic and promises to be epic. Waiting impatiently for further revelations; Cobra meting out well deserved punishments to dastardly, villainous people… And the introduction of a quintessential and necessary ‘master of evil’? We shall see.

This was such a fun read. Gave me that old comics feel in a grown up version. I created the images in my head and just ran through the book. Cobra (Eric) is sexy as hell. Can't wait to see him really take off. I'm going to enjoy this series. I have to find out how things are going with Jordan and him. I'm a bit worried about Jordan. He seems like a trouble magnet or a weak spot for Cobra. Only one way to find out. Excellent start to a series. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Need a Hero 16 July 2016
By Donna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Everything that Nicholas Bella writes seems to turn to gold. This new series proves this once again. He sends you though a kinky, sexy, dark door and shuts the door. And you don't want to find the exit. You start reading and it flows from one page to another and all of a sudden you are hoping it never ends. Mr. Bella gives you a "out of the box" experience every time.
I have fallen for Eric and Jordan. Who doesn't love a "nerd" and his "hero"? Can't wait to see what the next adventure brings.
5.0 out of 5 stars Worth More Than 5 Stars!! 16 July 2016

AAAAND...Nicholas Bella does it AGAIN!! No surprise though. Another series and what a great start. His fans look forward to whatever he writes because we know it will always be the cream of the crop when it comes to supernatural erotic gay stories. He holds absolutely NOTHING back. He writes a warning in every one of his books. Heed it well. Although this episode is actually a little mild.
This new series is about a man with hero-like abilities. Very strong, heals fast, bullets don't penetrate his skin, can jump high, moves faster than usual, impervious to sickness. At the start, people hire him to do their dirty work. His "sidekick" is Jordan, a man he once saved from being beaten to death. Jordan moved ing because he had nowhere to go. They became friends and eventually lovers but not exclusive. Jordan considers Eric to be a superhero but Eric feels far from one. After a Eric prevents a burglary at their favorite diner, they need to move from that area. After saving the people at the diner, Jordan once again tries talking Eric into being an actual superhero. Eric finally agrees. He decides his alias will be Cobra and gets himself a cool outfit and weapons. His first act is to kill a man who He had to deal with on last job. The man gets women, drugs them and kills them after he's had his way with t h them. Cobra infiltrates the house disables a few guards nd has to kill the rest. The man tries to cut a deal to save is own life. Of course, it doesn't work and Cobra walks away satisfied that this scrum is no longer walking the earth and is also about a half a million dollars.
It's a MUST to read this and enjoy details I purposely left out. To experience the wonder of Bella's world's also read his New Haven and Demon Gate service's. Happy reading!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a series 24 July 2016

I can tell I’m going to love this series! Who doesn’t love a vigilante? Eric/ Cobra has a soft spot for those in need… more so those who are getting their butts kicked and are defenseless. That’s how he met Jordan after all. Jordan is a wiz with computers and a friend with benefits for Eric.
What I loved most about this story is Eric/Cobra isn’t one of those vigilantes who lets you talk him out of doing what should be done. He kills the bad guys. He’ll convince them he won’t, take all the shiny stuff, and then kill them. It’s justice in a Batman meets Deadpool and has a baby named Lucifer kind of way.
This is set up in episodes, just like all of Nicholas’s work. Origins, episode one, really thrusts you into the story and we follow Eric’s POV even though Jordan has a lot to say. I adore him! It’s funny, hot, slightly dark but not as dark as Nicholas Bella has written. I have no doubt Eric and Jordan are going to come face to face with the stink of the city and also have no doubt that it’s going to be amazing.
This is a wonderful kickoff to this new series.
