I felt like I was being force-fed information. You know, like you ask someone for pizza but they want to tell you every ingredient and how it's made? The whole thing felt very forced and unbelievable.
Even if you take out the fact that this mermaid is thrust into the human world but somehow human items don't seem foreign to her (which was a big distraction because let's face it, she shouldn't know what a phone and closet or microwave are), the bad grammar and misspellings were too distracting to stay committed.
I'm not giving it a one star only because I don't want to be mean and because I technically didn't finish it. So it could have gotten better later on. However, the key is to keep the reader reading from the beginning and I'm afraid this book fell flat.
I think she could have a decent story if she got a good editor and revisited the whole story with the thought of being blind to the human world (what would you think a brush was for if you had never used or seen one?).
It's a quick and easy read, and a nice story, but I felt there were things missing. I liked Blake and Arianna together, but their romance happened too fast for my liking. I guess a lot of people love that kind of thing, though.
I was more intrigued by the ending than anything, though, and it left me curious as to what'll happen in the next book. So overall, a solid 3 for me. Enjoyable, a nice read, but there's something missing from it for me to really enjoy it the same as everyone else.
Lets just say there is so much going on in this book , you will not be disappointed. We have arranged marriage under the sea, a human almost engaged to another human. There is magic and evil. There is romance and angst of young love and the burden of family. Doing what is expected of your family instead of doing what is in your heart. It reads like a cross between the little mermaid and Romeo and Juliet . There are times that you will be laughing and other times going what the hell just happened and why did they have to go through that. Oh yeah don't forget the ocean, and it figures into the story also.
The characters are well written and honestly you want to give Arianna a good shake every now and then and say Girl you will get through this and quit being a pushover. Blake is a very broken man he has had so man bad things happen to him through his life . You just really want to hug him or shake him hard every now and then. I mean he bounced back and forth so much. One minute he was loving Arianna and the hurting her. I really just kind a wanted to slap him , but he finally realized and grew up in my opinion and realized that Arianna was the one there for him day in and out . That he wanted to be the hero in her fairy tale. The character that surprised me the most was Owen. He was totally a bad boy, and party boy. He even did the nurse in Blake's hospital bed while Blake and Arianna were at physical therapy. Which only a bad boy would do. As you read this book you each character grow and when things come to light towards the end of the book . You will finally understand why Blake and Owen acted the way they did. Especially Owen.
The author took me on a roller coaster ride with lots of twists and turns. But I will warn you though there is a big cliff hanger at the end of this book. I was frustrated cause I really want to know what the heck will happen and will they actually get their happily ever after. This book is a great afternoon read . So grab a cup of tea a snack and a cozy blanket . Settle down and be prepared to swim with the fishes . Ok I know that was bad but hey had to throw it in there. If you like mermaids with a twist . Check it out
It left me scratching my head and thinking "What ? a lot.
Some things were rushed, some things dragged, some things seemed pointless and impossible, then there was that some thing is missing feeling. Maybe the plot was missing ?
In my opinion the author missed the boat.
