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.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


“Well,” said Adam, a slight smile on his lips. 
“That was unexpected.” 

I second that Adam. Ms Brigid, that was rather unexpected, lol! 

I absolutely adored this novella.

What Brigid Kemmerer can do with a novella! 

I really do believe she writes the best novellas, she wastes no words and you just simply want to keep reading. This is why I try, if they are accessible to Australia, to read novella’s that get sandwiched between books.

This was Brigid’s best novella in the Elemental series to date in my personal opinion. I wanted Nick’s novella to be a full blown book. 
After tweeting Brigid, she said she was working on it now. Woot!

Awwwww Nick. I gotta say I did not see that coming until I started reading Breathless and I loved what I read.

I have to say the title is apt as I felt breathless watching Nick discover himself , and oh myyyyYYyyyy how Brigid wrote Nick’s story. It was a mixture of beautiful and nervousness for him.

I really liked how dance was used in this novella. Quinn is a bit of a mixed up cookie who has a bigger story to tell us I think. I liked where Brigid was taking us with a new character. He sounds like he will be rather yummy for Quinn and made quite the entrance.

I am loving Adam. I connected with him in this short novella. He has a kind heart. 

I must say there was some sizzle in this wee little novella!

I always love the way Brigid uses the elements in her writing. She did it again in this novella bringing Nick’s Air element in beautifully.

I know there is more to come from Nick’s story as the brothers will be in the know at some stage. I feel a bit nervous for Nick with Gabriel.

“On the outside, you’re absolutely identical, but on the inside, it’s like you’re polar opposites.”

He sighed and ran his hand through his hair again. “Trust me, I know exactly what you mean.”



I am looking forward to more of Nick’s story. I am actually rather breathless for it.

Bring . It. On. 

FAVE QUOTE:

“He’s not a dancer, Adam, this is Nick.” Adam. The name fit him like a chord strummed on a guitar.
