ARC Review: Breathless (Elementals #2.5) by Brigid Kemmerer

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.

 This novella focuses on Nick Merrick and his girlfriend Quinn. I loved the first Elementals books. And this novella I enjoyed reading more about Quinn's home life and just how bad it really is. I hope she gets a happy ending and she gets her own full-length novel. I should of read the description before actually picking this book, because I don't like reading novels about gay people. I honestly didn't see that coming after reading the first two books. I was really hoping he and Quinn would work out :(

    1. Micah,
      Homosexuality is against my religious and moral beliefs, therefore I don't like reading about it. I don't mind as much when the gay characters are secondary characters, but I don't like reading about gay main characters. I try not to let my religious views come out in my reviews, but I felt like I had to be honest and say point-blank why I didn't like this novella. I'm sorry if this offended anybody, but this is my honest opinion of the book and homosexuality in general. If you do not appreciate my honesty, I kindly ask you do not return to my blog.
