Here is the summary of the book:
Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys; all the ones she doesn't want. Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her. 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.
As I said in my previous review, i.e., in the Elemental review, that I am reviewing it in the order of placement not publication. So now I move onto the first book of the series and suddenly things make much more sense around here.... Suddenly things make much more sense, about those swoon-worthy boys on the covers and this wonderful world Brigid Kemmerer created starting with Storm.
HOT! HOT! HOT! The Merrick brothers - Michael, Gabriel, Nick and Chris are so HOT. I wanna use crass words to describe what i'm feeling right now *wink**wink* but since I don't want to weird anyone out or even myself for that matter so I am resigned to using the good words YAY!!!
We started out with Michael's story in the novella, Elemental..... there it is just the beginning, we know the brothers are elementals.... pure elementals, so are a lot of people. But Storm is what explains it in details to us. What it means to control these basic building blocks of life..... what would the consequences being a pure elemental mean for them. What started this for the sake argument with the weaker elementals of town and how they cope.... and what lead them to live their loves like that.
By now there have been 5-6 books (including novellas) out and each focuses on the boy in whose perspective the book is written. With a blue cover, Storm places itself in Chris Merrick's.... HOT Chris Merrick's perspective and Becca Chandler's, his lady love. Both meet by chance when she saves him unknowingly from other elementals hassling him at school. What follows is a cat and mouse game between these two add to that the entry of new kid, Hunter Garrity making it a triangle and the ever tightening noose of the mysterious guides.... and you have yourself an epic testosterone fueled drama, that has you swooning in places.....
HOTNESS ALERT!!! HOTNESS ALERT!!! I am prepared to forget every other YA HOTTIE I have ever crushed on or lusted after in light of meeting the Merrick brothers.... storm has enough drama, secrets, stolen moments and action so much action to satisfy everybody. Brigid Kemmerer gives us the first dynamic couple on the block with Chris and Becca. Even the love triangle with Hunter feels genuine and not imposing at all. And the elemental action..... amazingly depicted... the way Chris interacts with water is just outworldly..... Stay tuned you all for my reviews of the equally hot sequels in the series....you will so not be disappointed at all.
"They saw this as the series that YA fans have been waiting for..... they are so right...."
