Monday’s Review: Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

10401084

Blurb:

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 love friends on Goodreads, so don’t hesitate to hit me up with a friend request! I don’t review a lot of books out of respect for other authors, but I will have discussions about books, and I love hearing what other people have to say. That said, please note that I ignore all random book recommendations and event invites. Nothing personal, but that system has turned into a spam generator, and it’s impossible to suss out what’s real and what’s being sent to everyone and their brother. If you really think I should read a book (and I love genuine recommendations), message me! I’d love to hear from you!

Last thing: As a reader, I love Goodreads, and I will do my best to preserve the integrity of this site. As an author, I welcome all reviews, whether positive or negative. I will NEVER criticize nor contradict a reviewer on Goodreads or on any other site, nor will I enlist the help of friends or colleagues to do so.

In fact, here’s how I feel about the whole Goodreads Bullying situation:http://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_…(less)

Review of Storm

 

Rating: 4 stars

The story is mostly told through Becca’s eyes – she was an okay character for me. I found in some situations she was way too dramatic and in others she didn’t blink an eye lid. At times she was funny but not enough for me to really care for her. Like I said she was just okay.

 

Quinn her best friend was great I loved her one liners and her sarcastic sense of humour – she made the story better.

Okay so what made this story so great for me were four brothers.

Gab and Nick who are twins, Michael the eldest but also their guardian and Chris the love interest where what kept me reading. I just loved the four brothers and of course their gifts. My favourite would be Gabriel and I would love to read a book from his perspective his gift was fire which causes him to have a serious temper and a smart mouth, he isn’t nice to Becca and I didn’t mind as I understood his reasons. Nick his twin controlled air which was so cool if Gab ever got too carried away or lost his temper, Nick was the one to step in and calm him down.

Michael their oldest brother acted like an ass but I didn’t blame him he was trying to be their father/brother/friend and trying to protect them. I felt sorry for him and Gab gave him a really tough time.

 

Chris was interesting in a moody kind of way but he wasn’t the only love interest in Becca’s life we also had hunter who I knew from the start wasn’t what he seemed. I thought maybe he had an earth or spirit affinity with his knowledge of stones and his love for his dog.

 

Overall it was interesting and I can’t wait to read Spark (Gab’s story ) 🙂
