Favourite Quote: â??You're going to disappoint people sometimes. You just are. And you know what else? They're either going to get over it or they're not. If they don't, it sucks. But it's not going to kill them, and it's sure not going to kill you.â?? This book has to be one of my most anticipated books ever and Iâ??m glad to say Brigid Kemmerer did not let me down! I loved this book and I give it a 5/5 stars! As Iâ??ve said in my other reviews about this series, is that the characters are what makes it amazing! In this book, we focus on Nick Merrick and he struggles with keeping a huge secret and balancing all the other elements in his life such as school, college etc. I really felt my Nick and my heart went out to him because he felt he couldnâ??t be who he really was or he wouldnâ??t be accepted. Nick has always been the sweetest, kindest brother in my mind and I hated seeing him turn angry and bitter because life was weighing him down! Then thereâ??s Quinn, who I liked overall but sometimes I think she was so melodramatic but I liked how strong and opinionated she was and I felt sorry for her because of her family/home life! There were a couple of other secondary character, Tyler, who although has a lot of flaws, I actually adored him! And thereâ??s Adam who I also really liked although he wasnâ??t developed enough for me to really love him! As for the other characters, I loved seeing all the Merrick family, they are my favourite fictional family (aside from the Weasleys of course) As for the plot, a lot of it revealed around Nickâ??s secret but there were other storyline such as Quinnâ??s family situation, the new guide, and by the end war was on the horizon! Just like the other books in the series, there was a lot of action scenes that created excitement and made this book a fast read! Also I loved learning about Nickâ??s air element, and Iâ??ve decided if I could control an element, it would be air! Overall, I loved this book and I think the end sets up brilliantly for the final novel in the series!show more

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Kensington Books and Netgalley.) This is book 4 in the ââ?¬Ë?Elementalââ?¬â?¢ series. Nick knows that he likes boys, and more specifically he likes Adam, but his emotions are not in check and he seems to be sending Quinn running into the arms of someone he really doesnââ?¬â?¢t like or trust. Can Nick come clean to his brothers about who he is dating, and the fact that itââ?¬â?¢s a guy? This was an okay story, but for me the ending was much better than the first 80% of the book. I really liked ââ?¬Ë?Breathlessââ?¬â?¢, so I was looking forward to seeing what happened with Nick and Adam in this book. Nick seemed quite preoccupied in this book though, and it was hard to get a real feel for him most of the time. I understood how he felt, and how difficult things were for him, but I also understood how hard it was for him to admit to his brothers that he was gay. The storyline in this mainly revolved around Nick and Adam, with some time also devoted to Quinn and Tyler. Unlike the last book where everything was about the guides, this time everything was about the romance, and for me neither of these were ideal as I felt there needed to be more balance. The romance in this was okay, and I liked Adamââ?¬â?¢s flirty little texts, but it didnââ?¬â?¢t have quite the same ââ?¬Ë?heart-racing, OMG, I love him, I canââ?¬â?¢t put this down, Iââ?¬â?¢ll die if he doesnââ?¬â?¢t kiss her right nowââ?¬â?¢ quality that Spark had. I thought the Male-Male romance was done well though, and I was happy for Nick and Adam, I just didnââ?¬â?¢t get as involved in the romance as I might have done, I donââ?¬â?¢t know why. I donââ?¬â?¢t think it was just because it was Male-Male though as I didnââ?¬â?¢t feel it with Quinn and Tyler either. The rest of the storyline was basically missing until around the 80% mark, when things suddenly started to happen, and we got some real action and excitement ââ?¬â??finally! The last 20% of the book was really good, and definitely improved this book for me. We were then left with a bit of a cliff-hanger right at the end though. Overall; okay, but not as good as Spark for me. 7 out of 10.show more
