Mini Review: Elemental (Elementals, #0.5)

Elemental {Elementals, #0.5}/ Brigid Kemmerer

I wanted to find out if I would read the elemental series, as there are many mixed reviews, and test the waters with this novella.
Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it much.

"As an air Elemental, 17-year-old Emily Morgan doesn’t have much power. That’s okay—she knows what happens to kids who do.
Like Michael Merrick. He’s an earth Elemental, one with enough power to level cities. Which makes him sexy, dangerous, and completely off limits. At least according to Emily’s family.
But her summer job puts her in close contact with Michael, and neither of them can help the attraction they feel. When forces of nature like theirs collide, one misstep could get someone killed. Because Emily’s family doesn’t just want her to stay away from him.
They want him dead." from GoodReads


Both main characters don't have much structure, the plot was really 'forbidden romance category's cliche and the writing wasn't gripping. 

Emily was really spineless, saying sorry to a man who was a jerk to her, and Michael was a heartless douche. Their romance didn't have sparks or chemistry at all, we just have to assume they're oh-so-meant-to-be-together. I didn't feel for any of the characters, and apparently Chris is supposed to be the main male in the series, so I don't think that I can read when I don't care for any of the characters.
