He leaned in. "I come here every Wednesday and Friday."Emily nodded."You going to try to kill me every time?"If I had any sort of liquor in my house other than a crazy huge bottle of toasted marshmallow vodka, I'd probably crack it open and pour out a glass so I could toast Brigid Kemmerer. I'm extremely happy to have found a promising start to a pnr series. It's been a while. I decided to take a chance and read this free prequel first before starting book 1, just so I wouldn't have to commit to a longer book in order to decide how I felt about the series. If you want to do the same thing I did, go check out one of the many major booksellers and chances are, this digital freebie will be up there. At only 49 ebook pages, it's not much of a gamble. *edit* This isn't a freebie anymore but it's only like 99 cents or something ridiculously low.What impressed me the most were the intense emotions of the characters and how these emotions came across without feeling like I was choking to death on sappiness. Yes, the love vibe is definitely going to be on the heavy side here but I do enjoy romance if it's written in an enjoyable manner, even if I usually tend to prefer UF over PNR. There's something about this author's style that reminds me of Armentrout but at least with this author I'm left with none of the same guilt I feel after reading Armentrout.The best part so far? The banter! I'm not sure why but there's something I feel while reading about couples who form a relationship through arguing that just does it for me. It's like this strange precursor of sexual tension which I can't explain. Yes, it is quite delicious.She stopped before he could notice her. A red tee shirt clung to his shoulders, reminding her of those matadors who swung a red cape to taunt a bull to fight to the death.Then there comes the reward when enemies turn into something else...It was the please that got him. He couldn't remember the last time any of them had said please about anything.Oh yeah, there was also a bit of action and some cool new powers and stuff (again with the technical terms). I can't wait to see where this series goes. Onward to [b:Storm|10401084|Storm (Elemental, #1)|Brigid Kemmerer|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1325995724s/10401084.jpg|15305022]!
