Playing With Fire by Gena Showalter

Summary: Used to be my greatest achievement was holding a job more than three days. Now suddenly I can shoot fireballs, chill your drink, or blow-dry your hair at fifty paces with a blink of my eye!

It all started when this crazy scientist dropped something in my Grande Mocha Latte. Of course I got wicked sick. Next morning I'm waking up with this total hottie bending over me. He tells me 1)his name's Rome Masters, 2)he's a government agent and 3)I can control the four elements with a thought.

He seems even less pleased by my (apparently irreversible) transformation than I am . . . Because now he'll have to kill me.


My Thoughts: I really loved Playing With Fire. We meet Belle who has had so many jobs she is basically used to getting fired even though she hates it. One day, out of the blue, someone rushes into the coffee place she works and all hell lets loose. A few days later she wakes up to a hot guy standing over her bed. His name is Rome. Come on, doesn't that name say it all? The guy is hot, gorgeous, dreamy! He was so darn sexy I spent most of the book melting. He is so witty and he definitely knows how to make a girl blush. Belle wakes up with superpowers such as fire from her eyes, fire from her fingers, she can create ice, etc. We also meet all the side characters who are out to get Belle and kidnap her to use her for their advantage. Don't get me wrong, there are also good guys, her sidekicks! This book was so action filled and so good. I wanted Belle and Rome to be together. There is so much more to her and him and the chemistry between them is hot! I just hope the second book is just as good! I love Gena's writing. I've read a few of her others and she has a great writing style. I suggest picking up this book now before the end of the month when the sequel comes out.

Overall: AMAZING! So much fun! The characters are hot and smoldering!

Cover: Really like this cover, the colors are pretty, and its very appealing.
