Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

Tuesday, April 24, 2012
Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they have more power than you dream.
Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn't want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.
Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

The storm is coming . . .

Goodreads Summary

How great would it be to be surrounded by four hot guys who are able to control wind, water, fire, and earth?  Would you still want to be around them if knowing their secret marked you for death?  Before I rave about how great this book is, I must first talk about the epic main character, Becca Chandler.  She is a great heroine for many reasons.  Becca tries to defend and standup for herself and others.  I really admire her and enjoy reading from her perspective.  Four other reasons I loved this books are the amazing, gorgeous, brothers.  Their relationships are fun to read about and Kemmerer did a great job allowing the reader to learn about the brothers with Becca.  One other guy is in this book, however.  Hunter is mysterious and compelling.  Love triangle?  Yes!  Regular, overdone love triangle?  NO!  Kemmerer does not allow herself to fall into this overused trap that so many talented author ensnare themselves in.  She takes the idea of confused romance and makes it her own. 

This book is definitely mean for teenage girls and young women.  This audience can relate to Becca and will love the other aspects of this novel.  I give Storm five stars, but am not pleased that Kemmerer raised my dating standards.  At this rate, I will never find a guy to meet my ridiculously high, unrealistic expectations!

    I'd be content with just one guy, but four... Even better!

  1. I've had this one on my wishlist since I first saw the cover and read the blurb. Glad to see you liked it.

  1. Oooh, it's like falling in love with Captain America times 4. Or the Power Rangers! I have heard a lot about this book recently, and nothing bad, so it may just have to go on my GR TBR list. Thanks for another great review.

  1. this sounds like a good read
