Publisher's Summary

Dover Rees is a guppy-tailed merman and the youngest child of the king of the Southern Silver Isles. Despite the lofty title, he fits in better with the other guppy-tailed working class than with his royal siblings. 

Dover spends his days secluded in his creek, successfully avoiding the king’s court and all the judgmental nobles there. Then, the most wondrous and horrible thing happens. He hears the mating call and knows his alpha is waiting for him.

Ben Elliot is just a human trying to get by in a small tourist beach town. He has his art and a few good friends, and that should be enough, right? Wrong. Coming home to a quiet house and an empty bed starts to wear him out, but none of the omegas he knows appeal to him...until a storm knocks him off his fishing boat, and he’s rescued by a mysterious, blue-haired omega.

Together, Dover and Ben forge a bond strong enough to stand against the storm of corrupt lords, court politics, and a cursed king.

Author's note: This is a paranormal merman, mpreg insta-love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There are a few potty mouths, so beware. 18+ listeners only, please. It is book one in The Silver Isles series.

Yay for mermen

I really liked this story. It was very cute and sweet. The heat level is pretty mild. Very light mpreg. The narrator is awesome. Can't wait for the next in the series.

It's me, not you

I'm fresh off the author's other stories and dove right into this one. Although I love PNR, MM, Mpreg and all other things this author writes...this world just didn't land with me as the others did. I'll definitely keep up with it as I love the positivity the author puts in all their stories. therefore I know it's me, not you. No matter what, grab anything by this author if you want a hopeful, positive light on what society should be.

too much too fast.

I have listened to a LOT of the various merman/maid romances and this one just is strange. the world is OVER saturated with shifters for starters. humans, shifters and merfolk interact all the time (World building desperately needed) and I feel that taking the mystery of the mer away from the story ruins what makes a mer-romance work.

Deep Sea Lovin'

Over all I give a 2.5 Story an performance 5 each Although was enthralled by the story itself there were and are issues
with the cloud player. with in the last hour or so the audio kept cutting out and skipping if I had listened to the whole thing without trouble it would have gotten 5 stars in all three areas. a perfect young adult romance story for those in the LGTBQ community.

Fun and interesting!

This was a fun read! C.W. Gray gave life to an intricate world of creatures, shifters and humans. All of them are interwoven in a fantasy world like no other!

C.W. Gray created a lovable and adorable creature in Dover, the Guppy Prince. He is such a sweetie, so loyal and trusting and he is incredibly intelligent and good. He’s the character you can’t help but fall in love with. Unabashedly himself, and unashamed of his body.

Ben is our sweet protector and a complete gift of a man. He is caring and attentive and so very loving. He was so well written.

The plot and the twists had me eager for more! The writer expertly left us in curious wonder over what will happen next with one of Dover’s brothers and I cannot wait to listen to it next!



I cannot say enough good things about this narration! Connor brought something special to all the different characters voices in a way that made me feel like I was experiencing different narrators.

The layers to the voices and the tones were well done with all the different emotions and issues of the story. I could feel Dover’s emotions, I could feel Bens determination.

Connor also had a very crisp and clear voice that made it easy to understand and follow the story from start to finish. I didn’t have to rewind at all to try to understand a thing. I was always on top of who was speaking, even when other characters entered scenes and conversations went through lots more dialogue than story.

I really enjoyed this narration, and I would definitely listen to more from this voice actor!

(Spoiler)
Overall I really enjoyed this story and I would recommend anyone who enjoys fantasy mm with a touch of MPreg to give this a listen!

A Fated Mates Insta-love Story Worth Diving Into

After reading/listening to several contemporary MM romances in a row, I was ready to dive headlong into a light, sweet, other-worldly story and "The Guppy Prince" fit that bill. The story took off pretty quickly with royal merman Dover answering the mating call by finding his human fated mate Ben, as did their relationship (it is an insta-love story, after all!). The cast of characters was quite large and somewhat difficult to follow initially, but author C.W. Gray gave them all distinct voices and roles to play.

A bit more world-building would've added some welcome depth without dragging down the overall light and playful tone, especially since the setup for doing so was there and the sea witch's generations-long curse affecting both merman kingdoms is so central to the story. But what a unique paranormal world, where shifters of all kinds, vampires, witches, and humans roam amongst and in full knowledge of each other, not to mention being fated mates. It was all intriguing enough to pique my curiosity about where the series will go in the next book(s). A prequel about Dover's parents could also be quite interesting, as their backstory was an important element in this story.

Connor Brown was a new narrator to me, and he proved a capable one with this solid performance.

I received this audiobook for free by request and provided this honest review voluntarily.

A Sweet Tale

A wonderfully sweet story about a merman prince who is looked down upon because of his guppy tale. He leaves his under water world for dry land, in search of his true mate.

The author builds an interesting world filled with intriguing characters, a storyline I want more of, cute babies and even cuter pets.

Fun, lighthearted romance!

Dover and Ben are a delight. The story is sweet, with just enough intrigue. The secondary characters are a lot of fun and you will become fully invested in this story as it unfolds.

A+ Story

Well narrated by Connor Brown, this is the first narration of his that I have heard.

The story works well, although in my opinion it is too fast and a run time of 5hrs is (for me) a waste of a credit. Normally I purchase books with a longer runtime.

The characters are well written and believable so that you are eager for the next chapter.

Worth a listen, you wont regret it.

as good as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Sweet merman story

This was my first dive into the world of the Merfolk! The story was a sweet story of a merman finding his human mate. I would have liked a little more details about the underwater world and the shifting, but the story and the world were captivating.
I struggled with the narration. Maybe it is because English is not my first language, but I found the narration hard to follow. I even tied to slow down the speed, but it didn't help at all. The narrator spoke too fast and the timing and pace were somehow off.

Fun

This book is so much fun. But don't think that the story is skimped on. There is actually a very well thought out and quite in depth plot. There is also a strong underlying message about the need for acceptance whether it be colour, sexual identity or species.

I particularly loved the imagery in this story. Little touches like the Vespa and the shinies make this an absolute gem. Prince Dover and Ben represent everything good and the size of their hearts astounds. Secondary characters such as Dover's parents, brothers, sisters, various witches, crocodiles etc. are all excellently written and not used just as window dressing.

It did take me a while to get used to narrator Connor Brown. I had to read a couple of chapters first and then had no further problems. His enjoyment of the story is evident in every word and he brings to life all the different characters in excellent fashion.

Merman, do I need to say more?

I really enjoyed this book. At the start I had a hard time following the story because I had to get used to the narrators voice. He did a really good job though, I just had to get used to his voice, because it's quite deep. I have that more often with narrators how have a deeper voice. just something personal.
I loved Dover from the start, he's just so fun and sweet. And Dover and Ben together is just magic :)
I definitely recommend you to give this book a chance. I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out.
