Nowhere is safe. Not even home…
Nick Merrick is stretched to the breaking point.
Keep his grades sky-high or he’ll never escape his hometown.
Keep his brother’s business going or the Merricks will be out on the street.
Keep the secret of where he’s going in the evenings from his own twin—-or he’ll lose his family.
Keep his mind off the hot, self-assured dancer who’s supposed to be his “girlfriend’s” partner.
Of course there’s also the homicidal freak Quinn has taken to hanging around, and the Elemental Guide counting the hours until he can try again to kill the Merrick brothers.There’s a storm coming. From all sides. And then some.
Nick Merrick, can you keep it together?
Regardless of whether or not you agree with Nick's choice, this was a really good story about love, acceptance and figuring out how to just be yourself.
Nick has always put his family first and as Elementals, the Merrick brothers have gotten really good at keeping secrets. Nick is no different. Except the secret he's been living with could not only change the way his brothers see him, but how he sees himself and for Nick, that's a risk he isn't sure he's willing to take. *hugs Nick*
Quinn is no stranger to secrets either and she's more than willing to help Nick keep his if it means she can keep hers. But the truth has a funny way of revealing itself even if we don't want it too and Nick and Quinn both learn that help can come from the most unlikely sources. (I love how Quinn learns that she is worth so much despite the way she's treated at home and at school, and I really liked the person who shows her that. REALLY.LIKED. :D)
This story, like it's predecessors, has a seamless dual POV, is fast paced, action packed and full of feels. It makes a fantastic to the Elemental series!
I had the pleasure of hanging out with Brigid a few weeks ago at an event in West Virginia and she was kind enough to sign some books for me. Books that I am now sharing with you.
