    Gabriel Braven is destined for a great love, but he does not believe it. His parents had a storybook romance… until a freak ocean storm robbed them of their lives and left him alone to be raised by his grandmother. With their deaths, Gabriel’s adoration for the sea turned to fear, and his belief in happy-ever-afters turned to dust. Gabriel vowed to never set foot in the ocean again and to never believe in love.

    Short, Sexy and Steamy!

    Yes I would. It's short, sexy and steamy but also well written.

    Gabriel should have drowned twice in his life, but he survived. Casillus Nerion, his beautiful merman savior, tells him the reason for this is simple: Gabriel is a merman. Long ago, a Braven ancestor fell in love and had a child with a powerful merman. This child did not inherit the Mer gifts, but Gabriel has. Despite seeing inexplicable physical changes to his body when he gets wet and having trouble breathing when there is plenty of air, Gabriel’s head tells him that Mer, like love, do not exist.

    Short, Sexy and Steamy!

    Yes, I would. It's short enough to listen in one setting, the writing and descriptives are very precise and the dinner scene was greatly narrated.

    the writer doesn't respect the reader's intellegence
