Summary from Goodreads:
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 review:

Oh boy, I love the cover of all the Elemental series, including both the US and Australian covers! I love how the US covers feature the Merrick Brothers! The cover is PERFECT for the story! Michael looks AWESOME!
5 Forget-me-not flowers for the cover!


Welcome to the world of Elemental and meet Michael, the eldest Merrick Brothers... 

OH BRIGID, I am officially one of your BIGGEST fans. Even though I've only read Elemental and it's only a short prequel to Storm, I am absolutely in love with her writing and the Merrick Brothers. I absolutely love the 'elements' concept of this book and the story of Elemental. I don't think I've found any books or read any books like this one before. A series with FOUR HOT BROTHERS? Oh boy, count me in! (Although I think it might be really hard to get the brothers for myself because SO MANY PEOPLE are FIGHTING FOR THEM!) Elemental introduces us to Michael Merrick, the eldest Merrick Brother, his complicated life, the element he controls and how he ends up falling for Emily, a girl he's not supposed to attracted to. The ending left me absolutely BREATHLESS. Why? Because I NEED MORE. I NEED STORM NOW and I NEED to meet the rest of the Merrick Brothers!

Michael Merrick is officially the first Merrick Brother I've fallen in love with. If there's one thing I loved most about Brigid's writing, it's her vivid and realistic description of her characters. When reading Elemental, I can imagine as if Michael is actually alive and REAL. Brigid's detailed writing allows me to feel what Michael is feeling throughout the book: anger, pain, sadness and it makes me want to hug him. Also, I love the chemistry between Michael and Emily. I love how they're breaking the rules by being attracted to each other and I want more of them! So what precisely am I saying? I'm in love with Merrick Brothers, starting from Michael since he's the one who is featured in Elemental!

Elemental, a prequel to Storm will definitely satisfy your curiosity of who the Merrick Brothers are and gives you a taste of Brigid's AWESOME and delicious writing! If you haven't grabbed a copy, what are you waiting for? It's only $0.99 cents in Amazon and plus, you get to meet Michael, the eldest Merrick Brothers before Storm even comes out in April (US) and May! (AUS) 
5 Forget-me-not flowers for Elemental!

  7. CELINE! SQUEE! I am insanely happy you loved this. I SO agree with your thoughts on Michael. He felt REAL and.. you just want to jump inside the pages to hug him and squish all the bad in his life so he can be haaaaaaaaaapppppy, damnit! :( I so adored reading how he and Emily fell for each other. It would appear that Brigid woman is crazy effing talented <3

  8. Ohthankgoodness I have a copy of this novella coming because I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT! I'm so happy that you loved it as much as the commenter right above me did, Celine! x) The fact that you've already fallen for the Merrick brothers in only a novella's worth of writing makes me already know that Brigid is going to be a FANTASTIC author, and it also makes me super-impatient to get my hands on this AND Storm!

    Amazing review, Celine!! I won't be able to sleep until I read this novella LOL! x) <3

  9. Michael appears much closer to my fictional age, so that I don't appear too pervy, I shall have to nominate him as the one I get all drooly over. Awesome review of this novella. I have it to read and NOW I want to read it even more...thanks for sharing:D


  10. HEHEHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Ooooho, Celine, you're getting me so excited for later this month! *is giddy* FAB review. I bought it today, and I'm SO excited to finally read something by the AMAZING BRIGID!!!
