Just a self-proclaimed nerd who likes to read and review (mostly YA) books. You can find me on my blog The NerdHerd Reads or on Twitter @nerdherdreads. Might drink too much coffee ;) 

Storm - Brigid Kemmerer This review also appears on the NerdHerdReadsI loved this book. It's been a while since I've read a YA book that I've loved to much, but this one was it. I loved the characters, their relationships, the story line, the way it was played out. Of course, it wasn't perfect, but it was pretty darn close. It starts out when Becca rescues Chris from getting beat up. She is then thrown into their world, which she never knew existed. Then this Hunter kid shows up, and Becca thinks she's falling for him. But nothing is as it seems. Like always.I loved the dynamic of the relationships between the brothers. They each have a different personality, and that affects the way they interact with each other, and Kemmerer did a good job of showcasing that. Michael is the oldest, and for whatever reason, my favorite, and although he comes across as a jerk, he has also had to raise his brothers for the last few years. Gabriel and Nick are the twins. Gabriel can come off as a sexist douchebag a times, but he also redeems himself. Nick is the quieter one. Chris is the baby, and the one who's personality we get to see the most. I also liked the story line and the way it drew you in. It wasn't overwritten, or drawn out. It was also different enough from any other YA book that it kept me hooked. So many times, I see the same plot lines overworked, and this wasn't like that. It was refreshingly different.Becca wasn't your usual damsel in distress main female character. After all, the book opens with her saving a guy. She was spunky and courageous, and didn't wait around for the guys to get things done. She got them done herself. And hot guys. Five of them. Come on.I read this as part of a read-along with StarryEyedRevue and Cuddlebuggery. It's not too late to join in yourself!
