Book Summary: (from Goodreads)
An accident that should end in tragedy instead gives seventeen-year-old Jamie Baker a slew of uncontrollable superhuman abilities.
To keep her secret safe Jamie socially exiles herself, earning the title of Rocklin High's resident ice queen. But during a supercharged encounter with star quarterback Ryan Miller she literally kisses anonymity goodbye. Now the annoyingly irresistible Ryan will stop at nothing to melt the heart of the ice queen and find out what makes her so special.
Unfortunately, Ryan is not the only person on to her secret. Will Jamie learn to contain her unstable powers before being discovered by the media or turned into a government lab rat?
More importantly, can she throw Ryan Miller off her trail before falling in love with him?
When I picked up this book I thought 'interesting, a protagonist that has superpowers.' I read the back and thought it was cool that it all starts because of a kiss.
The things that bothered me were how fluffy most of it was. I know it is probably the least girly thing I can say, but it's true. This book has great potential. There is a great plot and overall it's a pretty good story, but it was just way to "romance" I guess.
It was well written and well thought out to have her fall in love, then to have it be hard because of the protag's powers, though there could've been more scenes that involve her using her powers I guess.
The people that would really like this book would like romance and a little fantasy. I, myself, am I more adventurous.
