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?
Nick Merrick, an air elemental, has a secret; one he keeps with himself for so long that he learned to live with it..but, miserably! Quinn, Becca's BFF, is the only one who knows the secret and she is helping him hide it. But, when Nick sees his mate, all the secrets are coming out in the open..not only Nick's, but Quinn's too. And they are not sure how to handle it..
This book covers some serious issues, which is truly addressed well. It's kind of difficult to write this review without revealing any spoilers. But, I will am going to give it a try.
Quinn, although lacks self-confidence at first, but acts hardcore on the outside, clings to Nick, just because she likes him and he most probably won't hurt her. But, when it comes to giving Nick some space, she meets Taylor, the fatal enemy of the Merrick's brothers. Taylor is not new character; but we see a new face of him. And then there is another Guide in town to kill the Merrick brothers and he cannot be taken lightly.
I am really proud of the maturity in brothers, especially Michael. The guy is so young, but faced with so many tough situations. Of course, he handles them all very well, understands his teen brothers and makes a life for himself. I am very glad that he finally got his own girl friend, one who understands him better.
There are three couples here and all are awesome. I can't stop reading this and when it's over, I can't wait to read more.. Another successful installment from a trusted author! She will never fail to amaze me.
If you haven't started this book yet, you should seriously start now.
