Blurb from Goodreads:

Secrets are hard to keep when your life's at stake.

Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys; all the ones she doesn't want. When she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot, everything is about to change. Chris is different from the guys at school... really different. He can control water just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. The brothers are powerful and dangerous. And now that Becca knows the truth, so is she.

When the mysterious new kid, Hunter, turns up, Becca thinks she can trust him. But when he goes head-to-head with Chris, Becca's left wondering who's hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

My Review:

3.5/5 stars

Becca Chandler is the object of unwanted attention at school. 
One evening she stops a fight in the school car park, rescuing Chris Merrick. 
Becca soon learns that Chris isn't like other guys and neither are his brothers - they can each control an element. 
They're powerful and people want them dead.
Then a new guy, Hunter, starts at school. 
Chris and Hunter fight over Becca but can she trust them? 
Or are they hiding secrets from her?

I really enjoyed this. I was hooked from the beginning and found this really easy to read. 
The characters were likeable and I connected easily with them. 
I felt sorry for Becca because she didn't deserve what happened to her. 
The plot was good and wasn't predictable - I didn't see the surprises at the end coming. 
I was slightly disappointed to find there was a love triangle but it wasn't over the top and there was no insta-love (thank God). 

Overall I enjoyed this book and while it didn't amaze me I would recommend it.
