Waiting on Wednesday: Kinetic by S.K. Anthony

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
spotlighting upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Raina's pick this week:

by S.K. Anthony
The Luminaries  #1
Publication: September 20th, 2013
Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy

Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.

Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.

A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything ...

First, that cover ... GORGEOUS! Genetic alterations, a CIA-style female and organization, a psycho who happens to be the ex-husband, plus kinetic energy/physics? Um, gimme. Gimme, gimme, gimme. Ever since my seventh grade science project on kinetics, I've been obsessed with the subject, the very notion of it. Add the fact that this is NA, and my clutching hands are in the air.
