Publisher's Summary

Some heroes aren't born, they're built.

Westley Worthington has found the love of his life in Cordelia.

But when he pushes her away to protect her family, he fears he's lost her forever.

Cordelia Cross has never felt about anyone the way she feels about West.

Which is exactly why she is resolved to keep her distance.

When West is threatened with the loss of his fortune, his friends, and even his life, he must learn that it takes more than super-strength to be a hero to the ones he loves.

Can he save the day one last time, before the technology that rescued him finishes him for good?

    "I LOVED THIS SERIES!"
    Would you listen to Upgraded again? Why?

    I would listen to the whole series...it was a good one!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Upgraded?

    When West almost dies!


    Have you listened to any of Mason Lloyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have...he is good!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My heart did feel for West and Cordelia...and I did laugh some too!


    Any additional comments?

    ** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

    West and Cordelia had a bad break up in the last book, and even thought they still care for each other, West has some explaining to do and an apology to make...West is slowly deteriorating from the prosthetics he is using...and the city is in almost an all out war...Also there are people in the company that do not have West's best interests at heart...

    I liked the way this wrapped up..I like that Cordelia and West worked it out and I am sad this is the end for these books!! LOVED THIS SERIES!!!!

    WELL WORTH YOUR TIME AND A CREDIT!!!

    "Great read "

    I usually don't get books that arn't stand alone books, but this one was well worth it. It took all 3 books to tell the story properly. Great story line with well developed characters.

    "perfect ending"

    love the way this ends! West is still needing smacked, Cordelia is now working for his ex friend, and Jess starts acting out. things on the street are getting really dangerous and West still has gliches. things come to a head in an unexpected way and nothing is left untouched. there is violence and adult content.

    "The rise and fall of a super hero"

    A great conclusion to an amazing series! It seems as if Wes has lost everything in this final book but he gains much more than he could ever imagine. Tasha Black does a great job building the characters and evoke so many emotions from both the reader and the characters themselves. I love that we get to read more about Jess and her quick Witt. I am sad that I have finished this series!

    "Building a Hero #3"

    This book was good, as the first. Glad for the happy ending.

    Few Spoilers.. Maybe...


    Dude, I was about to say nooooo not Wes, I liked him even though he was a perk in the beginning II still liked him. And Peter wasn't truly his friend in the beginning because what friends does you like that? Like come on now, you choose to work for someone like that, I was glad that Peter and the other guy got what they deserve, and Wes didn't die I was upset, for like 2.5 seconds lol. Ugh. Heart all racing and stuff. Lol!!

    "Fantastic Series"
    Would you listen to Upgraded again? Why?

    Yes, I certainly would, it made me laugh, it made me cry and at the end I was so sorry it had finished.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Upgraded?

    For me it was finding out that West wasn't dead


    What about Mason Lloyd’s performance did you like?

    He puts so much feeling into the story. I love his work


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes when Cord realised that she loved West no matter what


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third book in this series and I have enjoyed them all, I know you could probably listen to this as a standalone, you do get enough information from the author, but don't the whole series together is totally wonderfull. I'm sorry it's come to an end.

    "A very fitting conclusion indeed"

    I was pleased with this conclusion to Tasha Black's Building a Hero series. I like Cordelia and supported her decisions surrounding her relationship with West. Dalton needs a story of his own. Good narration!
