Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
Even while Michael came off as a jerk to most people he didn't with me and I'm glad that everyone now can see what I saw from the beginning. This novella tells us the story what happened that lead to the current situation in Storm (see review for story). I felt so bad for Michael in Storm his brothers treated him like he was public enemy number one and all he was trying to do was help them out the best he could at such a young age. Even though we know the story ends on a sad note for Michael and Emily I hope he finds someone in the books to come I feel it would be a very interesting read.
