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?
A short story that retells Jamie and Ryan's first kiss from Ryan's point of view.
Jamie Baker, the only girl in the world with superpowers, has now accepted who she is and learned to control her power. Not to mention she has the best boyfriend on the planet. Life is finally looking good. But the day she witnesses an accident and decides not to save the guy out of fear of being exposed, she realizes that simply being Jamie Baker isn't enough.
After seeing Jamie so wrecked with guilt, the ever-helpful Ryan Miller decides it's time to make all of his fantasies about turning his girlfriend into an honest-to-goodness superhero become a reality.
Of course, coming up with a decent Super Name and fending off all of Ryan's attempts to get her into spandex aren't the only problems Jamie faces. The more her alter ego starts to make headlines, the harder it becomes for Jamie to hide her extracurricular activities from her best friend, the government, radical scientists, and the mysterious new guy who is determined to steal her from her boyfriend.
I wasn't expecting to read these books. Before I saw on Facebook that Being Jamie Baker was free on various book-selling sites, I hadn't even heard of it. But I'm so glad that I have, because they were just so fantastic and amazing books!
I loved reading about Jamie, she was such an incredible character, her story was so captivating, and I just loved her voice! And the story she had to tell, oh wow, so entertaining to read! I loved her, Ryan, and all the others! So fantastic to read these books!
Being Jamie Baker, we really got introduced to this world and to these characters. And it was really awesome to have that, because that makes this series a bit of a YA/NA series, between the high school setting, and then the college setting!
More Than Jamie Baker, well, the threats were expanded upon, and there were lies and secrets and stuff. And people weren't who they seemed to be and other times, people grew and changed. Which was something of a good thing, in one case, and a bad thing in another.
Oh, that cliffhanger ending of More Than Jamie Baker! That was pure evil, and has me begging for the final book in the series! Though I feel sorry for those who've read it before me, and have been waiting for it and dealing with the pain longer!
This is such a fantastic series, so enjoyable ,and I'm going to have to check out Kelly Oram's other books out!
