Five by Christie Rich

Five [Elemental Enmity]
By Christie Rich

From Goodreads:
Rayla Tate was just a child when her mother disappeared from her life forever. Raised by her aunt Grace in a small town, she has lived a relatively uneventful but extremely sheltered life. She doesn’t know it yet, but she is special. She has been hidden from the fae who have lived secretly among us since the beginning of time. Descended from an ancient blood-line of Elementals, only she has the power to crown the first fae high-king.

Sick of provincial living and the dictates of her aunt, Rayla flees the safety of her home and runs away to college with her best friend. However, excitement over her newfound freedom is short-lived when she finds herself being chased by a mysterious stranger on her way to school. She is drawn to him immediately but resists the compulsion she feels. He disappears into the night, but she is certain he is following her.

Rayla struggles to deal with the encounter while she adapts to her new environment. To make matters worse, Aunt Grace reveals that Rayla will soon be hunted by a pack of fae lords, each hoping to claim her power for his own. She soon finds herself surrounded by stunning men. Are they fae, or is this just normal college life? More importantly, who can she trust when she can’t trust herself to be near them?

Alexia’s Review:

What an epic book!! I was hooked from page one. I loved the characters, every single one of them. The story line was excellent, like nothing I've read before. Five had just the right amount of romance, action and humour - I cannot express how much I enjoyed this book! The descriptions of everything, land, human, immortal even troll was amazing. Christie this is an awesome book and I can't wait to read more of your work!
Delicious – make mine a double
