Mini Book Review: Breathless


Young Adult > Fantasy | Paranormal

(Elemental 2.5)

Too many secrets. Not enough time.

Nick Merrick is supposed to be the level-headed one. The peacemaker. Since it’s just him and his three hotheaded brothers against the world, that’s a survival tactic.

But now he’s got problems even his brothers can’t help him survive.

His so-called girlfriend, Quinn, is going quick as mercury from daring to crazy. Meanwhile, Quinn’s dancer friend Adam is throwing Nick off balance, forcing him to recognize a truth he’d rather shove back into the dark.

He can feel it—-the atmosphere is sizzling. Danger is on the way. But whatever happens next, Nick is starting to find out that sometimes nothing you do can keep the peace.


…Oh, Brigid Kemmerer. You sneaky, little…..! Holy sh*t. Nick Merrick!!!

*breathes deeply*

I didn’t expect this kind of curveball from Brigid Kemmerer. Really, I didn’t. And now, I wish Nick‘s full story will come out sooner rather than later! Here is the responsible Merrick. The peaceful twin. Wouldn’t you know, there’s a hurricane raging silently inside of him!

Breathless briefly showcased Nick’s role to the Merrick Family. How being the middleman among his brothers helped him help Quinn with her problems. Me thinks Nick is going to be my favorite Merrick brother, once his story is published after Hunter’s. But for now, he’s coming really close to Chris, who is my current fave. 🙂

So.. secrets, huh? How Brigid Kemmerer managed to write Nick’s POV and he came out as hot as his twin, Gabriel… astounding.

Thank you NetGalley and Kensington Teen for granting my galley request.
