Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Sophie loves being an elemental. Being able to bend the natural world to her will is thrilling, even if the need for secrecy is putting a cramp in her dating life. Lately, though, her powers have been growing, making it difficult to resist the heady temptation to use her gifts.
Trying to balance the elemental world with having a normal life is tough enough without her overbearing, way-too-perfect, and way-too-good-looking guardian Aidan watching—and judging—her every move. The trouble is she’s not sure where she fits in and she’s sure as heck not ready to conform to stringent elemental rules.
But when secrets about her life are revealed and outside forces threaten everything Sophie holds dear, she must embrace who she is or risk losing it all.
He shoved his hands in his pockets and stared at me, probably waiting to see if I was done babbling. I wanted to face-palm myself. I never babbled. I’d sounded like an idiot. I wished I could blame it on the drug, but I’d already determined it was no longer affecting me.
Looking down at my toes, I suddenly found their unpainted state fascinating. The thing was, I didn’t need him to help me, but I wanted him to.
That realization rolled around in my mind. The air between us was thick, becoming more uncomfortable with every second.
What was up with this craziness? This was Aidan.
Aidan, who I used to play hide-and-go-seek with. Aidan, who enjoyed antagonizing me with tough workouts. Aidan, who’d been so kind and gentle when I’d needed it most.
I racked my brain for a smartass comment to break the tension, but nothing came to mind. Nothing appropriate anyway. Not that I’d ever cared about being appropriate.
The rules had changed—that much I was sure of—but I didn’t know what the new rules were.
