This week's Tease comes from:

(Elementals #1)

Brigid Kemmerer

First - The Blurb:

Earth. Fire. Air. Water.

When Becca Chandler saves Chris Merrick from being beaten-up in the school car park, she has no idea how dramatically this one action will change her life. Chris is no ordinary guy and neither are his three older brothers. The Merrick boys are Elementals. Hot. Powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

Then there's Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time. With her life at stake, Becca doesn't know who to trust or whose secrets she should keep. 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?
Take Cover.
The storm is coming!
Second - The Tease:
He leaned down and brushed his lips against hers, just for a heartbeat, maybe a moment more. His mouth felt warm and dry, very sure. He only drew back an inch, weighing her reaction.
Wow! I actually managed to keep this weeks tease brief. Hope you liked it.
Third - My Thoughts:
Becca first appears as a normal teenage girl, but as the story unfolds, you soon discover that she has a lot going on in her life. Some of it not so pleasant. After rescuing Chris from a beating she forms a friendship with him and quickly discovers that he is not just a normal teenage boy. He is an Elemental who draws his power from water. Although an attraction starts to develop between them, neither of them acts.
Enter Hunter - the 'New Kid'. He takes in instant liking to Becca and begins to form a relationship with her. However, it turns out he has his own secrets and is not as innocent as he first appears to be.
As the two guys rival for Becca's attention, more and more is revealed. Some twists you can see coming. Others you can't.
After seeing this book/series featured on several other blogs, I felt that I had to read it. It's not a book filled with swoon worthy moments but the story is captivating and keeps you entertained right to the end.
My Rating: 4 out of 5
