Life don't go quite like you planned it, We try so hard to understand it ...

"Please give my friend a job. Please." - Miss Sherridan Smith, best friend

"Playing With Fire" [part of the 'Tales of an Extraordinary Girl' series] by Gena Showalter takes on another version of someone who has the ability to control the elements ... in this case those would be fire, wind, water, and earth .... and the person would be Belle. However, Belle didn't get these powers on her own .... a scientist had actually slipped the formula into her drink, without her knowledge, and it changed her into getting them. Now she has these powers .... one hot man and a whole lot of killers after her to get their hands on her and the formula in the process. It doesn't help that the scientist took off without letting her know what was happening to her and now she needs to find him to possibly get an antidote. But will she be able to find the scientist before her killers find her??

3 out of 5 stars. Belle is a cute character ... fierce and kind. You definitely root for her. And I like this new take on these types of powers ... since the only other character I've read so far with them has been Zoey from the "House of Night series" by PC Cast & Kristen Cast ... however ... Gena put's her own twist to them as you soon find out that Belle's powers work mostly with her emotions .... and with that the possibilities are endless. *hahaa*

"If you're looking for trouble, Belle is the girl for you. P.S. - Hurt her and I'll kill you." - Mr. Rome Masters, aka "Cat Man"

For more information on this book, series and/or any other books by Gena, then please check out her website.

** Title is from the song It Happens by Sugarland **
