Genre: Fantasy, Mermaids, Romance
Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it's not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you're a normal teenage girl, but when you're half human, half mermaid, like Lily, there's no such thing as a simple crush.
Lily's mermaid identity is a secret that can't get out, since she's not just any mermaid—she's a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn't feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she's been living on land and going to Seaview High School ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems—like her obnoxious biker-boy neighbor, Quince Fletcher—but it has that one major perk: Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren't really the casual dating type—the instant they "bond," it's for life.
When Lily's attempt to win Brody's love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily ever after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.
Loved this book! First off, I adore the cover! How fun is the mermaid, sea look? Plus, under the book cover, the actual book is hot pink :)
The story is obviously about a mermaid, Lily. I enjoyed the mermaid story. It was a unique, fantasy story that was fun to be wrapped up in. Lily is sometimes irrational, but for the most part she was an enjoyable main character.
The love story was so cute! Okay so it was somewhat predictable, but the tension between Lily and Quince made the story lot's of fun.
Tera Lynn Childs is a fabulous author! The characters were well rounded and she created a fun mix between the mer and human worlds. This was a sweet mermaid story mixed with sea slang and humor.
Fun read! I was hooked the entire time I read! Plus the ending is set up for a sequel.
Read it my friends :)
