Bel Reviews: Brigid Kemmerer's - "Spirit"
He’s up to his neck in hostiles. His grandfather, spoiling for a fight. The Merrick brothers, who think he ratted them out. Calla, the scheming psycho who wants to use him as bait.
Then there’s Kate Sullivan, the new girl at school. She’s not hostile. She’s bold. Funny. Hot. But she’s got an agenda, too.
With supposedly secret powers rippling to the surface everywhere around him, Hunter knows something ugly is about to go down – which means he’ll have to find someone he can trust.
POWER. ENEMIES. EVERYWHERE.”
Hunter was the star of the ebook, Fearless, and it was nice to see him get a whole full length novel of his own.
The poor guy just can not catch a break until the eldest Merrick brother, Michael, gives him the chance to get his feet under himself. I haven’t read a whole lot of books where guys are nice to one another for the sake of being nice. There is usually strings attached or some awful ulterior motive. Makes me wonder which is more believable. I honestly hope guys would help each other.
I enjoy reading the interactions between the Merrick brothers, and adding Hunter into the three ring circus gave me more than one occasion to snort giggle. I even read one bit out to my husband and even he laughed (which hardly ever happens).
As with the other books it wouldn’t be complete without a little romance to add a little sweetness. Kate and Hunter have an awkward thing going on, but it’s giggle worthy and made me sigh.
If you haven’t read this one yet, you might want to track it down for the September school holidays. (along with the other books and ebooks) and consume them, or re consume them as the case may be from the very beginning.
Brigid’s books lift my mood and can turn around even the worst day. Love me some Merrick brothers.
The next book is due out in January, and will be called Secret. Can not wait!
