I loved the first in this series, 'Karma Girl', although it was definitely over-written. 'Jinx', for me, isn't nearly as delightful as 'Karma Girl', and not just because I now know what to expect. If I hadn't read 'Karna Girl' first, I probably would have enjoyed this more than I did [and I did enjoy it, because Estep writes a lovely, light-hearted book with some depth], but having really enjoyed the character of Carmen in the first novel, I found Bella's character as Jinx a trifle annoying, just as Debonair, the superhero hero [no, that's not tautology], isn't nearly as oomphy as Striker. Still, the story of a don't-wannabe super-heroine who can't control her power of supercharged telekinesis is sweet and funny. You don't have to read the others in the series first, but it helps. A solid 3.5.
