Secret - Brigid Kemmerer (Elemental Series #4)

Published Date: January 28, 2014
Genre: Fantasy/Romance/Young Adult


Nick Merrick is stretched to breaking point. He's trying to keep his grades sky-high or he won't get in to college. He's trying to keep his brother's business afloat or the Merricks will be out on the street. He's trying to keep the secret of where he's going in the evenings from his twin brother Gabriel - or he fears he'll lose his family. And he's trying to keep his mind off the hot, self-assured dancer who is his 'girlfriend's' partner.

And then Quinn takes to hanging around his sworn enemy, and an Elemental Guide is counting the hours until he can try again to kill the Merrick brothers. Storms are brewing. On all sides.


All I could think while reading the book, even during the beginning was "What. The. Actual. Fuck." Yes, yes excuse my language but honestly though, I really liked this plot twist and it was equally heartbreaking at the same time. So now that [Quinn and Tyler] are now together, it was just mind blowing. 

I always thought Tyler was a prick for always picking on the Merrick's especially little Chris but this book showed a completely different side to him that really made my eyes open...

Anyways, Adam and Nick, truly a genuine couple that I loved. Honestly, this book was a game-changer and if I had to choose my favorite couple so far throughout the entire series, it would be them. But then again, I may start liking Hannah and Michael's relationship as well. 

This book was "Good. Great. Fine." and it truly shows the bashfulness that everyday people go through to try and impress their significant other. Nick is genuinely sweet and innocent when it came around to Adam and I loved how confident Adam made Nick. I think it was a great insight on how people truly felt when they were scared of telling the truth about who they truly are.

I am going to rate this book a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars because Kemmerer always seems to know how to make her readers fall in love with her books even more every single time that I read a new book in the series.

I hope to be reviewing Beautiful Darkness - Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, City of Fallen Angels - Cassandra Clare, Forever with You - Jennifer L. Armentrout, and Sweet Temptation - Wendy Higgins. Alrighty, go ahead and read this book or series because I can promise that you won't be disappointed. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
