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.
We get a deeper look into Quinn's home life and why she has self esteem issues. We get to see how much Nick really cares about Quinn and actually likes Quinn for who she is. Quinn is trying to figure out why Nick does not want to become intimate with her and is sure it has to do with her being fat. Nick swears to Quinn that she is beautiful and not fat but Nick can not deny the fact that he is not romantically interested in her or any other girl for that matter.
Nick meets Adam and tries to fight all those feelings that have tried to creep up inside him for over 2 years. Now Nick is awestruck with Adam and has no where to hide. With Quinn upset and in trouble with some bikers Nick and Adam come to her rescue. Then Nick is left alone with Adam and his emotions are going crazy. Nick does something unexpected and now has no idea what the next step is.
Quinn is hurt and upset by what she has just witnessed between Nick and Adam but also in a way feels much better about her and Nick's relationship. She knows that Nick and her will be good friends for a long time. And they really do need each other to help figure out who they really are, how they are going to get where they want to go, and who they want to know their secrets along the way.
I really liked this short story it was a nice look into the relationship with Nick and Quinn which was skipped over a bit in Spark. While reading Spark I kept thinking what is going on with Nick and Quinn. You suspect they are a couple but nothing is really put on the table about the relationship because the book is based more on Gabriel. Very nice story to sum up some of the questions. I feel that this will lead you more into Secret (Book #4) instead of Spirit but either way you understand it a bit more.
RATING: 5 STARS
