Five by Christie Rich

Five (Elemental Enmity) by Christie Rich
Publishing Date: August 10, 2011
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Series: Elemental Enmity
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?
My Opinon on this Book: 

Let’s start off with thanks to Christie and the mods to the goodreads group called basically books that let me sign up to read this book. I love getting free books- and this was like Christmas for me. So let’s now take this time to talk about the book shall we (LOL). Alright I have to be honest that at first I couldn't even get into the story plot of this book but finally when I got halfway in the story took off in a flying leap. The story was too fast- and with this harem of all the fae's besides Finn going after her made her a bit slutty at times. Also her friend though at the end was very happy to be with her at the beginning I was like damn can she look beyond herself and see that her friend is being hunted. So I was glad by the end Cassie was being a good friend. I will want to read the next book that is for sure to see this story take off once again and to find out if she picks anyone plus is Rayla even her real name- I pondered when he asked her that. So hopefully this is a good enough review and I’m going to give you 4 stars since I did like it… wasn’t my favorite but hey it wasn’t horrible.
