And with two boy vying for her affections, and pressure rising all around her, will she find out in time who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all?
The storm is coming From Goodreads.
This book was really good throughout the whole thing. I really wanted to know what happened to Becca but when I did, I felt so bad especially since she blamed herself for what happened to her. She is definitely a lot tougher than most people give her credit for. She doesn’t take crap from anyone other than at school.
Chris meets her for the first time when she saves him from getting beaten to death. Luckily for him she was taking self defense classes that night. That night she ends up meeting officially his brothers, Michael, the oldest, and the twins Gabriel and Nick. Of course Michael scares the bejeesus out of her so it doesn’t exactly work to his advantage.
I like how she isn’t afraid to say what she is thinking, even if it’s not the right time to think it. Especially to her dad when he comes back into the picture after leaving years before with only 2 phone calls a year, or to Hunter, the new guy.
Now after not getting much of the right attention from guys, she ends up getting attention from Chris and from Hunter. Every time she is with Chris, you can almost see how they would be good for each other but they almost refuse to do anything about it. Especially since Chris is so hot and cold, makes sense since he has the water element as his power. He doesn’t have a temper like Gabriel though, nor is he as calm as Nick. I definitely preferred him over Hunter. Not that Hunter was a bad guy, just that I felt like there was something missing between Hunter and Becca.
There were so many secrets and lies between everyone that in the end it was nice to see that most of them came out and were handled somewhat. It’s only the first book of the trilogy, I am sure there are more secrets to come out.
I give the first book 4 out of 5 stars.
