I can see why he’s ~ ‘Breathless’ by Brigid Kemmerer #Review #COYER #RWBRAT

Breathless by Brigid KemmererNick Merrick is the quiet one. He lives with his loud twin and two other brothers after their parents died. They are all Elementals and have different abilities. His involves the air.

Quinn is Nick’s sort-of girlfriend, though she wonders why all they have done is kiss. Most of the boys want more from her than that, and she gives it. Maybe it’s because she’s built more solidly than the other girls, or perhaps it has to do with her parents and how they worship her older brother and hate her.

When Nick picks up Quinn from the dance studio late one night, a boy he doesn’t know shows up to practice, thinking the studio is empty. Nick can’t take his eyes of of Adam. There’s something electric between them, but Nick isn’t gay, right? But the more he thinks about how he feels about Quinn versus Adam, he gets both clearer and more confused.

I hate it when I get a book to review, then realize that it isn’t the first in the series. Many authors will tell you that these novellas that are more about side characters can be read as stand-alone books, but this one definitely could not. There is mention of the brothers, their girlfriends and their abilities, and I have no idea what is going on. That’s frustrating. However, on the plus side, the story here is good and makes me want to read the series. Yay.

  1. I have a bad habit of not looking to see if they are part of a series before I click on them..drives me crazy when I find out later..I hate reading out of order, though I have.

    1. I’m so sad! Usually I notice and have to check out book 1 from the library…in fact, I have a library book sitting on my bedside table which I keep re-checking because I haven’t gotten to it (and I can’t read #2 until I do!). Book reviewer probs, amirite?
