Summary: Becca is a junior in high school having difficulty living her life with rumors that her ex-boyfriend spread about her. One night, after her self-defense class, she sees a fight happening right outside of the gym. One of the Merrick brothers, Chris, is getting his ass kicked by bullies. She becomes the heroine and tries to save his life even with all his protests. Then she finds out that the Merrick brothers have powers. Not just any powers, but the best ones. They have the ability to control the elements. Now shit just got real!
My Review: Okay, so I LOVE this book. I was very skeptical on getting this book because of the cover. I know I can’t believe I judged a book by its cover. And nothing was really bad about it; it was just weird how you have four hot guys staring you down. But it still kept getting my attention every time I passed it at my local Barnes and Nobles. And I started to really like the cover, to loving it. Then I found out that the author, Brigid Kemmerer, was coming for a book signing. So Alexa, my best friend, and I decided to go and get the book at the signing. Instantly, when I opened the book it never left my hands. It was that good. I hated putting it down to actually pay attention in class. I read this book a while ago but I wasn't blogging at the time so I'm posting about it now.
I love all of the characters! Well, except the people who are the bad guys. Becca is actually brave, tough, and actually knows how to defend herself. Not someone who all of a sudden knows how to fight. Then there is Chris and his brothers, Nick, Gabriel, and Michael. Chris is the youngest and has the ability to control water. Oh! And he has a crush on Becca. Nick and Gabriel are the twins and the middle children. Nick control air, and is the nice and academic geek with out the nerd kind of guy. Gabriel controls fire and is the bad boy guy who has a really good heart, and is sports driven. Then the oldest brother, Michael, controls earth. He also is the tough older brother since it’s only them. Then there is Hunter, the new kid in town. What’s his secret? Becca ends up dating him for a bit even though it is clear that she has feelings for Chris. I like Hunter though even though I want Becca with Chris. He is sweet and wants to protect Becca; it also helps that he has the best dog in the world.
This book is a definetly a must buy hard copy version. I mean if you want and eBook go ahead, but it’s a must have!
