Freebie Friday Review: Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer

Title: Elemental
Publisher: K Teen(Kensington)
Published: March 27, 2012
Format: ebook, 50 pages
Source: Pixel of Ink

Goodreads Summary:
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.

My Feelings:

I have had this novella sitting on my Kindle for over a month now.  It looked really interesting just by the cover(green is my favorite color ;)) but I just never got around to reading it.  
Last night, I was skimming through my Kindle and found this story and just started reading. Oh my goodness I was completely hooked!  The writing is fantastic and Kemmerer keeps you in the dark, only revealing a little bit at a time about the characters.  
I didn't even realize it was a novella, until I got to the end and was like "Whoa! That was the shortest book I ever read!" 
This short story reminded me of Romeo and Juliet, in many ways, because it has the rogue that her parents don't approve of and Emily ends up finding out the truth.  
For a short story, there is a lot of emotions running high and bullying is a big part of what happens to Michael.  
This novella had me hooked as soon as I finished it and I was already looking up the next book(s) at Goodreads.  
I think this is a fresh new series and I cannot wait to delve deeper into the world of Elementals!

Had to give it 5 hearts!
