Here is the summary of the book:
Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally. Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can't. Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he's not doing it. And no one seems to believe him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Because Layne has a few secrets of her own...
The cover is red.... and red as far as the story points to is another HOT Merrick brother, the fire elemental this time, Gabriel. Spark pushes the story forward with Gabriel's perspective and his lady love's, Layne. Fire just like water can never be kept in bound. Even if water can be molded according to the vessel it is kept in but Fire..... you don't control this rage of nature..... tame it maybe ..... but absolute control is not possible....... In a way this describes Gabriel's fiery temper and attacking-before-asking-the-question nature perfectly.
The premise of Spark draws parallels with Storm but who cares I am partial enough to long exposures to the inner monologues of any and all the Merrick brothers and their other half's. For Gabriel and Layne, the latter proves to be a bit more of a calming presence to the rage in him, with Chris and Becca it felt they both needed the balance they so desired from their lives.... But got to say be it any brother or their girlfriends, their chemistry is enough to light us on fire *wink* (get your minds off the gutter people... i didn't mean it like that).
Spark also sees Gabriel and Hunter forming this weird friendship. Where Hunter helps Gabriel learn control over his element. It becomes clear later why Hunter was doing it, secrets were revealed and truths come out. Hearts break and trust shatters but Gabriel learns his important lesson that keeping secrets from family and loved one is detrimental to health not calming at all. Another brilliant work Ms. Kemmerer...... amazing.
"Another marvel in the series..... the Merrick brothers sure know how to make you all tingly inside"
