Summary from Amazon:
Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. She longs for the freedom to make her own choices, but when she breaks the 'no flying' rule, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki, a descendant of dragons whose greatest defence is her secret ability to shift into human form. And her rare ability to breathe fire makes her desirable, and important, to the survival of the draki. Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. There she meets gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: he and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slipping away, and if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
 
This book was fantastic!  It was so great to read a truly original storyline.  I loved the new mythology that the author created.  It was so inventive and truly something I hadn't read about before.  There have been many books about people interacting with dragons- but I don't think I have ever read a book that was a person turning INTO a dragon! 
 
This book has gotten some slack on the internet- as a thinly veiled copy of a werewolf story.  To that, I say- you need to get your head out of Twilight.  (cough cough)
 
Do yourself a favor- go read this book.  And then go read the summary for the second book here.
 
PS- Did you know this has already been optioned for a movie?  So excited!
