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?
I admit. I chose to read this because of the fabulous cover! The cover caught my eye before I had even read the summary. Then when I found out that it is about a high school girl who ends up with super powers, I was hooked.
I adored this book. It was so cute and fun to read about Jamie and Ryan. Ryan was definitely swoon worthy, but Jamie was really the one who stole the show in this book. Jamie is having plenty of problems keeping her powers a secret so she doesn’t become the governments next science fair project, but when Ryan enters the picture, she has a hard time concealing things. Amongst all of the chaos, romance and suspense, the author has brought to us a fun and super charged teen book for paranormal lovers of all ages.
I love the world the author created. I personally can’t wait to own my own copy of this book and to see what the author will come up with next!

Intriguing review. I like the idea of a superhero teen girl trying to keep her secret. Definitely one to look out for.
