4.0 out of 5 starsFirst Class Plot and Character Development
Reviewed in the United States on May 25, 2019
Not my usual genre of reading material. On recommendation by a family member I read Updrift, and then Breakwater, so had to read Outrush, the third book in the series. I'm hooked. The characters, with their identifiable perspectives and traits, are credible if not recognizable, and the plots have me looking forward to the next page. Those are the makings of a really good read. I definitely recommend that even those wary of this genre give this series a try.
I felt like I had been in a college classroom and my brain was tired. The storyline was good but exhausting. Had to read this in small increments. I did not care for the increased sensual descriptions. They were not necessary to the story.

“A shipwrecked sailor may find the isle of his dreams in the depth of all his fears” Anthony T. Hincks
In this, the Third book in Errin Stevens Mer Chronicles we focus on Maya Evans, estranged wife of Stuart Evans, son of Thad Evans, of Health & Wellness Prescriptives in New York City. Through little fault of her own, she gets caught up in Thad’s tangled life that could get them all in some serious trouble.
Being the third in the Wilkes family to catch the heart of a siren makes Maya off limits to Aiden who still figures out how to “watch over” the woman he feels as his “bonded mate”, managing to disguise himself as a member of the Evans’ Security force. However, when things go awry, he spirits her away, the heck with the consequences! While things fall apart around the Evans family, Maya is taken to a remote area and the sirens block her memory as she settles into a small community and opens a clinic to help the people. Both her now ex-husband and his father are trying to find her as what the THINK she knows makes all their lives in danger. Will Thad and Stuart find Maya? Does she know what Thad thinks she does? And, just how can you explain the “Fish Man” incident on the East River? You’ll just have to read this story to find out!
It’s been a while since Stevens has added to Updrift and Breakwater, the first two books of this series, and I’m “happier than a clam at high tide” that the wait is over. I adored the first two Mer Chronicles and it’s obvious this author has not lost her touch as she weaves Maya Wilkes Evans’ into the fold. Thank you Errin Stevens for these wonderfully flawed characters. I will be sharing these books everywhere I can. Highly Recommended 5/5

4.0 out of 5 starsAnother Great Addition to This Series!
Reviewed in the United States on January 31, 2020
OUTRUSH (The Mer Chronicles Book #3) by Errin Stevens is the third paranormal/urban fantasy story in the world of the Sirens of Griffin Bay though this addition to the series takes the listener/reader all over the US. The story picks up seven years after the events of Breakwater and focuses on the second chance romance of Maya and Aiden.
Maya has tried for years to make her marriage to her college sweetheart work, but when she catches him having sex with another at a party at her in-laws, she finally accepts there is no fixing their broken marriage. As she works through the revelation, her father-in-law catches her in his office. He believes she has seen incriminating papers and to save himself he orders her followed and killed if she goes to authorities.
Aiden may not be married to Maya, but he feels bonded and therefore goes against all efforts of the Siren community to keep them apart. Using his powers to cloak, he stays on the periphery of Maya life and marriage. When he learns of the danger she is in, he helps her get away, but their troubles are just beginning.
I have to say that I was once again drawn into the Siren world of Ms. Stevens and enjoyed all the characters. I was happy when Maya stood on her principles and strength to continue with her medical education and practice, even with all the chaos around her. She is a strong independent female character, which is why I had some difficulty listening to the first part of the book. It is a lot of internal struggle over several chapters that if she was so strong should have been more limited and resolved sooner in my opinion. I also love Aiden and his devotion to Maya, but the mind manipulation bothered me in some instances. Even with these two complaints, I still cheered their romance on. I was glad to see Ms. Stevens added the proof of Maya and Stu’s divorce before Maya and Aiden came together, also.
There are several subplots going on in this story that I am looking forward to listening/reading about in future books in this series. Once again there is plenty of romance, action, adventure and intrigue in The Mer Chronicles that keeps me coming back for more.
