I love Ryan. He is the best thing about this book.
He is a great character. I wasn't swooning over him but there is definite spark. He makes me smile.

Jamie isn't bad. I kind of understand why, she has to be icy and cold and why she hates her power. But, having super speed and Super hearing is kind of cool. She is too whiny for my liking.
Though, Ryan makes it all okay. He's just so positive and amazing. Yes, he is a little full of himself but that just makes him realistic.
But, he does pout a lot...I guess on him it works but just to be clear I don't think it's cute when guys pout.

Jamie and Ryan are adorable together. I love their conversations.

The book needs editing. Jamie took a lot of time to say yes to Ryan and the book got a little repetitive in the process.
And, the twist in the end, well...I really didn't see it coming!
Also, the whole thing about how Jamie got her superpowers was kind of silly.

The book doesn't have a great story but it is fun and entertaining.
Leave your brains out and read it, I am sure you would enjoy it.

Teazia Cockburn see after just rereading it now I didn't like Ryan as much I mean he kept on pushing her for that date right after he just found out that her boyfriend died in the accident and well in my opinion he maybe should have left it for that night at least - I mean her boyfriend died stop trying to get in her pants especially because he didn't know what happened that night so for all he knew Jamie was still deeply in love with Derek and completely devastated after his death in a 'I'll never love again' kind of way
