Publisher's Summary

By NYT and USA Today best-selling author Michelle M. Pillow

Terminally ill, Cassandra Nevin has come to the ocean to live out her days on a boat with a bunch of scientists who don't even know she's sick - or that she's not even a scientist. When something from the depths of the abyss attacks their boat, leaving her to drown, she knows it's her time. But then the unimaginable happens - she lives.

Iason the Hunter doesn't understand why the woman he's trying to save from death seems insistent he save anyone but her. Duty bound to try and rescue whoever he can; he takes the woman into Deep Ocean, to his home beneath the waves. But it would seem a watery grave wasn't the only thing threatening his new charge's life. To try and save her from her illness would mean possible disgrace and being banned from ever swimming in the ocean again. But what else can he do? From the first moment he saw her, she had command over his heart.

Rating: Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, and violence.

Fun ideas, Sexy Merman Romance! Great Narration!

Listened to the story on Audible. The narrator did a great job. She has good emotion in her voice, and she gets into the performance without going over the top.

Entertaining premise with the Mermen, and I love the underwater setting. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, so I was excited to continue on with book 2. I was really enjoying the story and the characters, but then the female lead, Cassandra, started being a moron. Cassandra and Merman Iason had good chemistry; which is good since there is plenty of sex scenes in this story, but I would've liked a bit more depth to the romance. Good passion between them, but the connection in other aspects was missing. Still some hot stuff though! I did feel like Cassandra didn't really care for Iason most of the time; she was just thirsty for some lovin, it made her come across as selfish. She also doesn't even think about the sex slaves being kept prisoner by those skeezy Mermaids; how about sending some help to save them. It would be a great way to add some more action to the story. Iason is great and I loved his protectiveness; he's a sweetie. I gave book 1 a 4 star rating, so I went with a 3 for this one because I enjoyed book 1 more. The ending needed a bit more too. Overall, there's some unique, fun ideas, and the story is interesting. I'd like to continue with the series and read about the other Mermen finding love!

Adventure

This was another great book in this series. It’s hot, funny and emotional. Cassandra gets her man in this book and in ways finds it easier to accept where she is at. I look forward to listening to the other books in this series.

Excellent book

Loved this book, sexy hot, exciting and very well written. I enjoyed listening to this narrator very much, she was clear, concise and the changing of the tone of her voice was excellent.
I would recommend this book to anyone over the age of 18.
