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.
A mini-review for a mini book - ok a novella then! I hope you read Special K's thoughts on novellas a couple of days ago. I have to admit, it made me realise just how much I enjoy them as well. They're a bit like having a treat bag of chips - not what you want, but ultimately enough to keep you satisfied for a while.
That's what Breathless is. A little taste of what's coming in the story about Nick. Here we get a quick glimpse into Nick's life, and it may just surprise you. The entire series is beautifully character driven, but with lots and lots of action to keep you going. We've got four hot brothers, each with control over a different element. If you haven't tried these books yet, give yourself a treat. Start out with one of the novellas - yep there's more than one. As well as Breathless, there's Elemental and Fearless and you can pick up the ebooks for under a couple of bucks most places. Ty them out and see. I'm off now to read Elemental.
