Review: Playing with Fire by Gena Showalter

47751580From the back of the book:

Twenty-four-year-old barista Belle Jamison dreams of a better job and a decent love life. Until a crazy scientist spikes her mocha latte! Suddenly Belle can wield the four elements -earth, wind, fire and water – with only a thought. Coffee too hot? No problem. Hair in need of a blow-dry? Done.

Gorgeous government agent Rome Masters has been sent to neutralize Belle. But he’s not the only one after her. Together they must outrun the rogue agents on their trail and find a way to control her powers. There’s just one problem: the sparks Belle and Rome generate are even hotter than the ones flying from her eyes – and with her future on the line, now is the worst possible time to fall in love…

PLAYING WITH FIRE is a fantastic read. I finished the book in one day – and my kids had a very late dinner, lol. Belle is a very fun and spunky character. I loved how normal she was written. She has terrible taste in jobs, men, and just about everything else. Her reaction to becoming a “superhero” is so funny and right on the money. Rome is just hot, hot, hot. I couldn’t wait to read how these two characters came together. I wasn’t disappointed. These two catch fire –¬†literally. I can’t wait to read what happens next in the book TWICE AS HOT.

the book girl gives PLAYING WITH FIRE a 5/5
