Teaser Tuesday (25): Struck

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Struck by Jennifer Bosworth. I've been meaning to read this book forever but am just getting to it now. So far it's really pretty cool.
My folded arms tightened, and I began scanning the room once again. 'I'm not going anywhere without Parker.' 
Jeremy's face froze between expressions. 'Who... who's Parker?' 
'My brother. He's here somewhere, and I'm not leaving without him.' 
'Oh.' Jeremy's shoulders dropped a little, as though relieved. 
Did he think I was talking about another guy? A non-brother guy?

Goodreads Synopsis of Struck:

Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.

Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.

Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.
