Five (Elemental Enmity #1) by Christie Rich

FiveBlurb: Rayla Tate dreams of escaping her ordinary world for a bright future in the art world. Throw in an overbearing aunt who is keeping major secrets, a disgruntled best friend tagging along to college, and a bunch of fae warriors waiting in the wings to claim her the minute she leaves her sleepy little town, and Rayla’s dreams are about to shatter.

She soon discovers she is a coveted Elemental with power she never knew she possessed–a power that could change the world. Everywhere she turns another man tries to woo her. The weird part is she’s drawn to each one of them. Who are these strange men, and what dark power do they hold over her? Rayla must quickly learn to fend off these beautiful and seductive pursuers using any means necessary or find herself lost to the fae world forever.




I just couldn’t get into it.  Rayla wasn’t believable to me and the story itself was pretty slow.  Add the info dumps here and there and I just wasn’t interested in what happens to her at all.  Cassie was too wishy washy.  Zach was flat as the male lead. The story didn’t flow very smoothly. It seemed that the author expected the reader to infer much of it.  That’s fine by me, I’m not one of those readers who expects everything to be spelled out for her. I do expect some things to be made clear, especially in the beginning.  It just didn’t work out for me.

But hey, it’s free so if you want to check it out and see for yourself.  It has quite a few 4-5* reveiws.
