Gena Showalter-- "Playing with Fire"

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 a surprise this book turned out to be. I gave it a chance because i really like Gena Showalter's "Lords of the Underworld" series. It took a while to get into this book, but once it hooked me it was a fun read. The developing romance between Rome and Belle is funny and charming and i couldn't wait till they finally hooked up. They picked up a couple of interesting characters along the way and the team came together to kill the bad guys. It's a different kind of paranormal book than i usually read, but i really enjoyed it. This seems to be the beginning to a new series since Belle and Rome now work together for PSI. I can't wait to read the next one....
