"You keep saving me," she said."Yeah, well." He stroked the hair down her back. "I think we might be close to breaking even on that."Even though the covers fail to impress me, the books are quite good! I have to give Storm a 4.25 to 4.5 rating. I truly enjoyed this book, probably more than I have any YA PNR in a while.It had all the key elements of a cute romance type book I'd want to read :~ multiple hot guys (jackpot!)~ lots of action & conflict aside from the romance itself~ cool powers & descriptions of abilities~ emotional fluttery feelings from reactions to the love interests~ several characters you want to know more about, which makes me excited for future installmentsEven the overdone plot devices didn't bother me :~ love triangle wasn't nearly as bad as many others I've seen~ sexual assault story was reigned in after it started to border on ridiculousAll in all, I am HYPED for the next book.

Oh lord, how I hurt for Michael after finding out what had happened from the prequel to this book. I was shocked to say the least.Chris Merrick, you can bring the lightning anytime...Chris was watching her a bit too intently. "They did hurt you."A bolt of lightning split the sky, somewhere beyond the trees.Hunter, you're okay too..."That right there is why I don't believe it. Any girl who wanted to sleep with half the school wouldn't pull away when I touch her."
