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 . . .
This story is told from both Becca's and Chris's POVs. I loved getting to know Chris and his brothers each of whom can control one of the four elements. Their brotherly banter is amusing, and it is hard not to like all four of them.
I was impressed with Becca. I did not expect her to be such a strong character. She stands up for herself and does not obsess over Chris and Hunter. Yes, there is a love triangle, and I had a really hard time choosing a side.
As for Hunter, he is a very interesting character with his rock bracelets and German shepherd, Casper. I think one of the sequels is going to be told from his POV, so I'm looking forward to that.
I loved this book! With surprising twists and fantastic characters this is a definite must read.
