Publisher's Summary

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!


What the Critics Say

"The versatile Showalter takes the nail-biting elements of her exciting paranormals and blends them with the wit and humor of her contemporary romances to make a delicious offering spiced with the best ingredients of both." (Booklist)

Don't do it.

Ok. So. I never expect Showalter's writing to be Pulitzer winning. Her proses leave much to be desired and sometime I want to give her a thesaurus. BUT her beefcake with a heart of gold stories are entertaining and I enjoy them. This is NOT an accurate depiction of Playing with Fire. Showalter has created the dumbest, most immature woman alive. I hope she doesn't identify with Belle. This book is slow moving and boring.

Waiting for book to start

I thought this book would be a departure from what I normally read. It seems to have a good story line to it. I am 4 hours into it and am still waiting for this book to actually start. Spoiler Alert... after becoming "infected" they are still arguing about how to devise a PLAN on how to deal with the situation. wow... If I pulled this at work I would have lost my co-workers 3 hours ago.
