Okay I want to start this review why saying I have not read a book about merman before and I really did like this book! I know I defiantly want to read more now. L.M. Brown built such a amazing world in this book and I was drawn into this book from the start.
Now I will say why I am rating this book 4 stars. I am just so picky when it comes to ménages and with this one I really felt like Finn was added on at the last second. To be really honest I had a hard time feeling the connection between Jake, Kylie and Finn. Now please don’t get me wrong because I still really liked this book a lot I just had a hard time feeling the connection between the three of them.
Kylie falls for the prince Finn and it is a big no no for merman to be with other merman. So when he is banished from his love he meets Jake on land where he falls in love with him too. So there is a huge dilemma that Kyle faces. There is some angst in this book and a lot of steam with I loved. You also meet a lot of new characters too, which I loved also!
All together I really liked this book a lot!
I would recommend this book!
I live in England, in a quaint little village that time doesn’t seem to have touched. No, wait a minute- that’s the retirement biography. Right now I am in England in a medium sized town that no one has ever heard of, so I won’t bore you with the details. Keeping me company are numerous sexy men. I just wish that they weren’t all inside my head.
