Their love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.

My Review:

I had to get sleep when reading this, yeah that never got done.

Megan, who is not only going to a new school, but a whole new country. Then we are introduced to Caitlin on her first day of school, who immediately becomes Megan's friend and later best friends. Megan know that she and Caitlin are going to get along great, but she swept away about a guy who seems to be everywhere she turns and is always starting at her and notice strange things about Adam and his family.

I loved Megan's relationship with Adam's family. Ríne was my personal favorite with his rebel, funny one-liners. His darker side is alluded to a couple of times and I worry that is going to come out later in the series as a problem. Fionn was the character I sympathized the most. He has lost so much and still watches over Adam and his siblings like they are his own children. The emotional connection. And lets not forget Áine, Adam's sister who controls the element Earth.

And now for the romance. Adam and Megan are very loyal to each other and that's what I love about characters. Adam is very sweet to Megan and the only "problem" that's like way to descriptive is the PDA. I mean, basically every chapter has some PDA in it. (Not that I'm complaining)

Overall, this thrilling and achingly romantic book will have you up late at night, leaving you wanting more and more.

Adam: Water
Ríne: Fire
Áine: Earth
Megan: Air
