Blazed (or Love in the Time of Supervillains) by Laurie Boyle Crompton

Blaze is tired of spending her life on the sidelines, drawing comics and feeling invisible. She’s desperate for soccer star Mark to notice her. And when her BFF texts Mark a photo of Blaze in sexy lingerie, it definitely gets his attention. After a hot date in the back of her minivan, Blaze is flying high, but suddenly Mark’s feelings seem to have been blasted by a freeze-ray gun, and he dumps her. Blaze gets her revenge by posting a comic strip featuring uber-villain Mark the Shark. Mark then retaliates by posting her “sext” photo, and, overnight, Blaze goes from Super Virgin Girl to Super Slut. That life on the sidelines is looking pretty good right about now…

The comic book geek in me is going “YAY!”. Hoping for some really cute stuff. Anything with supervillains makes my mind go straight to “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog“. I need to remember this is a book and it won’t be singing to me ): haha. Also I love the cover!
