Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they are more than you dream.

As an air Elemental, 17-year-old Emily Morgan doesn’t have much power. That’s okay—she knows what happens to kids who do.

Like Michael Merrick. He’s an earth Elemental, one with enough power to level cities. Which makes him sexy. Dangerous. And completely off limits. At least according to Emily’s family.

But her summer job puts her in close contact with Michael, and neither of them can help the attraction they feel. When forces of nature like theirs collide, one misstep could get someone killed. Because Emily’s family doesn’t just want her to stay away from him.

They want him dead.

I haven't really read much about this series but I knew it was something I would enjoy because I find it fascinating when characters in books can control the Elements. This is just a short story that has really made me excited for the series.

Elemental is set five year before Storm and it follows Emily and Michael. Emily has the air Element and has too a job at the sports center to help her save money to move away. Michael's element is Earth and he is very powerful, so powerful those who are apart of the Elemental community think is a danger to everyone. However, when they end up in close contact they end up being attracted to each. Sadly, both their parents want them to stay away from each. But her brother, he wants Michael Dead.

With just 50 pages I was completely hooked from page one. I connected with both Emily and Michael straight away. Usually in novella's I find it hard to feel a connection but this was not the case here. Emily hates the fact the her life is so full of hate that she just wants to go away from family. Michael, who everyone think is a danger is so sweet and lovely. OK, there is a slight danger about him but that only adds to his appeal. And the chemistry between them is wonderful. Having the story told from both Points of View we get inside both their head and feel what they are feeling.

However, I didn't really like how the ended. I know its only a short story and you can only fit so much in it but I felt like it just leaves you hanging there. So I only hope find out what happens in book 1.

I am really looking forward to reading Storm and seeing how this series continues. It's different and exciting with what i can only hope more swoonworthy guys!! ;)

  1. I'd love to start off by discussing the cover. These covers are so eye catching, with the good looking guys and the bright colors...however, the guy looks way too old to be Michael Merrick. Like at least ten years too old, probably closer to fifteen. That bothers me. I don't know why but it really does. This, however, has nothing to do with my rating of the book. So please don't think it has effected the outcome. It's just me voicing my opinion on that matter...

    STORM has been on my radar for awhile and I'm so excited it's finally out! My friend, Amber, who read both STORM and ELEMENTAL recommended I read this before the book, so here I am. It was obviously a quite read, it's a novella. I will tell you, it gets me super interested in the story and the characters, especially the two families mentioned in the novella. The Merricks and the Morgans. It boggles my mind though to see a romance form within fifty pages of a novella, I mean - isn't that usually something we read about, building up in a full length book? It kind of disappoints me but at the same time, interests me to see how this plays out. That's the only thing I'm torn on for this, the already budding romance.
