Storm Blog Tour - Keeping with the Merrick Twins + Review Round Up + Giveaway (Int'l)

HI EVERYBODY! If you're following the Storm "Down Under and About" Tour then I'm Friday and I'm keeping up with the Merrick Twins ( and doing a review round up!) If you're reading this post because you love me - then I'm just posting a really awesome interview with the HOTTEST brothers around!

So Sarah has actually posting a fantasy cast but I think (personally) this is what the brothers should look like - they're identical...
Gabe/ Nick *drool* 
Anyway onto the interview.... Two weeks ago I had the opportunity of meeting da boizzzz when they both asked me out on a date when Brigid brought them in for "Take a Hottie ( or two) to Work Day". I asked them some questions about my own beauty. Being brothers, girls and well, my own beauty ( but I cut those out!) Enjoy, enjoy! Because I CERTAINLY DID!


1. Pack Count? (of abs of course!)
Gabriel: *takes shirt off* You tell me.

2. Beauty or Brains?
Nick: Why isn’t both ever an option?
Gabriel: Dude. A better question is, why isn’t body ever an option?

3. Your best feature is...
Gabriel: *smirks* Heh
Nick: You should probably move on to the next question before he gets totally out of hand.

4. Soccer or American Football?
Nick: Football
Gabriel: Soccer

5. Favourite day of the week?
Both: Friday


1. Do you feel that you guys share a special “twin” connection?

Gabriel: You mean, like do we feel each other’s pain? *Punches Nick hard in the shoulder.* No. I didn’t feel that at all.
Nick: *Gives Gabriel a look.* We do.
Gabriel: *Loses the smile.* Yeah. We do.

2. Describe your perfect girl:

Nick: Why don’t you describe yourself first?
Gabriel: And where’s that Australian chick who interviewed us back in February?

3. What sort of trouble do you guys get into when you’re together?

Nick: I’m usually the one getting us out of trouble.
Gabriel: *Rolls eyes* He’s such a wuss. Just because that last explosion on the beach almost burned his clothes off.
Nick: You weren’t the one going home with half an outfit.
Gabriel: You’re lucky I didn’t make you walk.

4. Your perfect date consists of....

Nick: Being outside.
Gabriel: With a campfire.
Nick: And a blanket.
Gabriel: And that Australian chick.

5. Is it annoying when people mistake you for each other?

Nick: It happens all the time. I’m used to it.
Gabriel: *Smiles* It’s very useful.



If the interview ( and visual support) hasn't convinced you to read Brigid Kemmerer's debut perhaps the reviews of the awesome Aussie + Co. bloggers will?

I have no idea who that guy is you posted a picture of, but he's probably the closest I've seen to how I imagine the twins. NOT exactly, but the hair and some of the facial features. And the muscles I spy :D

    1) Gabriel taking his shirt off...

    *spends next 15 minutes unconscious*

    2) Gabriel's best feature... (!!!)

    *spends next hour unconscious after picturing his best feature*

    3) Gabriel punching Nick in the shoulder... HEHE.

    *spends next 4 months cursing modern technology for it's lack of ability to make hot fictional characters become real boys*

    4) Gabriel remembering 'that Aussie chick from February'...

    *IS DEAD*

  35. Thanks for a great post, I haven't heard of these books before so thanks for bringing them to my attention. That's one of the things I love about book blogs, I get to find books that I wouldn't normally as they aren't the super bestsellers going around where I live at the moment.

  36. This interview totally made me giggle.
    You just got to love the twins! :D

  37. Omg, these twins are hilarious, I love it.

  38. My Name is bellinda.....I never believed in Love Spells or Magic until I met this special spell, he is really powerful. The woman i wanted to marry left me 2 weeks to our wedding ceremony and my life was upside down. She was with me for 5 years and I really love her so much..she left me for another man with no reason..when I called her she never picked up my calls and she don’t want to see me around her…so, when I told priest what happened. he helped me to do some readings, and after the readings he made me to realize that the other man has done some spells over my wife and that is the reason why she left me..he told me he will help me to cast a spell that bring her back. At first I was skeptical but i just gave it a try…In 5 days, she called me herself and came to me apologizing..I can’t believe she can ever come back to me again......

  39. Awesome interview! The twins are so crush-able, crush-worthy? *fans self*
    Random: The guy on the cover of Storm and the 3rd book look more alike to me than the guy on Spark and Nick's book. Though I like Spark's cover best. x)

  40. I've had this book on my Goodreads wishlist and am so excited for this giveaway!

    1. this is a spell caster I contacted 2weeks ago. he is really great. I have been scammed initially by other spell casters of almost a thousand of dollars. I am not rich, I work my ass for this hard earned money. But my sadness was turned to joy when I met Dr.Zack Balo he is really terrific and you will get results for whatever you are seeing he for within very few days. he is so honest and sticks to his promises. His contact is below:

    2. I was heartbroken when my boyfriend decided to leave the relationship, so I wrote to and he cast the best spell. Within a 2days of the spell casting, he called "just to talk. After some enjoyable talks and catching up, he asked to see me again. No doubt, he is the best for love problems.


  41. I have many problems in my life and have been to so many spell casters with no results and as a result of this, I ended up in a huge debt.One day I used internet and felt some kind of strange but kind and gentle force as if someone was guiding me to search for spell casters. I can’t remember the words I typed in the search engine but I was directed to Dr.egogo. And that was it! I felt so lucky to have found his email: It all happened so naturally and easily and I am glad it did. No words can express the feeling I had.Despite all the bad experiences I had with FAKE spell casters on the internet in the past, nothing could stop me from reaching my dreams, so I ordered a spell from Dr. egogo. I had sleepless nights and was very worried because I promised myself I won’t approach a spell caster for help but did as it was time for me to help myself, stop crying and stop feeling sorry for myself.I also knew there was someone out there who is capable of helping me

  43. I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is


  44. I was crushed when my lover of three years left to be with another woman. I cried and sobbed every day, until it got so bad that I reached out to the Internet for help.And i saw a testimony of a spell caster who help a girl called michelle and i said let me give it a try so i contact him for help and he cast a love spell for me which i use in getting my love back and now i am a happy woman.For what you have done for me,i will not stop to share your goodness to people out there for the good work you are doing.I hope God blesses you as much as you have help me to get my Love back,visit him on is the only answer to your problemS

  45. Hello everybody, my names is Cindy Davis Am from Canada i want to give thanks and honor to Dr.ATILA for the great work he did for me, he brought my lover within 24 hours which i never taught it will ever come through in my life, but this great man Dr. ATILA proved to me that powers can do wonders, i got his contact from a friend in the USA who he helped, this friend of mine told me that this man is great but i felt as hmm are you sure? cause i hardly believe those kind of things,so she told me not to worry that when i contact him, that she is guaranteeing me 100% that my lover will come back that if it does not work that she will be the one to give me back my money, to show her sincerity to me, she gave me her car that if it does not work that and she did not pay me the money that i spent that she i should collect her car and she gave me all the documents, i was so so surprised she was very serious about it so that was how i contacted him and i told him what i want he just told me that everything will be done within 24 hours so with the assurance my friend gave me i was having confident, so in the next 24 hours that he told me i just heard a knock on my door i never knew it was mark, so that was how i opened the door the first thing he did was to go on his knees, he started begging me to forgive him that he is very sorry for everything, i was really surprised and was also happy, so that was how i forgive him and now we are living together happily than ever before, and am using the media to invite my friends on my wedding which will coming up on 30/10/2013, am very happy thanks be to Lucy who gave me his contact and honor be onto Great DR.
