Storm - Brigid Kemmerer (Elemental Series #1)

Published Date: April 24, 2012
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy

Synopsis: 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 . . .

I do have to say that this book was interesting. You have two main characters: Becca Chandler and Chris Merrick.

As if she has never had the attention from a guy before, she blushes at every single damn thing. Honestly, every other word I read was, she blushed at this and that. The Merrick brothers however hot and cold that they run, they are officially all on my book boyfriends list. The problem with book boyfriends is that they set up an unrealistic standard of being perfect to the guys you see every day in real life. If I could live my life in a book, I would most definitely choose that.

When the New Kid shows up and helps her out in an iffy and difficult situation, she falls hard for him. But not just him but the youngest Merrick brother, Chris. She flips back and forth because she cannot make a decision on who is the best for her. 

The story-line was good, the main girl who was supposed to be a heroine, not so much. Boys kept coming to her rescue although, she did have her moments. I really wish this book could be a solid 5 out of 5 stars but at most I can rate it a solid 3.7 stars out of 5. The writing style was awkward and you had to re-read several parts to understand that Kemmerer was switching POV's but not the chapter.

Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton's niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person's rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear...and ultimately, between life and death.

To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton's secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she's loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty's survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.

Genre: Young Adult/Romance
Synopsis: In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…

Some things you just believe in, even if you've never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It's out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she's got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph's eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick's self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he's knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she's building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can't walk away. Not when she's the only one who's ever made him wish for forever . . .

Alright, that's that for tonight. I will blog you later and soon, awesome book nerds!
