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.Swoony boys playing with the elements and falling in love? Yes, please.
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.
The writing is super. The emotions run high. My only complaint is that it just isn't enough. It has definitely whetted my appetite for Siege.
I was so happy to see Nick struggle. No I'm not a masochist, but all throughout the series so far, Nick has been the calm one. The voice of reason. The perfect friend, brother, boyfriend, whatever was required of him.
In Breathless, we see more of Nick's perfect behavior. That is, until the simple question, "So can I get your number then?" shakes Nick's foundation.
Nick and his twin brother Gabriel are viewed as two of the hottest guys in their high school and never lack for female interest, but when Nick is confronted with the attention of a certain male dancer, he begins to question his life, his choices, even his brothers. Could he really be gay? Could his family still love him if he is? And what is he supposed to do about Quinn, his girlfriend?
This short novella will have you panting for more of Nick's story.
5 out of 5 stars.
