Bridget is a scientist who loves the ocean. She is working on a ship to get the experience she will need to do the job she wants in deep water research.
Caderyn is a merman living in the abyss, miles below the water’s surface on ocean floor in the legendary, mythical city known above water as Atlantis. He is a hunter who rescues Bridget from drowning after a monster attacks their ship.
Top three reasons why I liked this book:
- I have yet to find a book with a merman hero that I do not like. They are near the top of my choice of mythical men list. In case you are wondering, ❤ dragon shifters ❤ are number one. But I digress…
- I like all things Greek mythology. In this case, the city of people were cursed to live on the ocean floor and turned into merr people because they angered Posiden. While the ocean god does not appear in the book, he does get an honorable mention.
- The chemistry between Bridget and Caderyn was hot! I am surprised the ocean water was not boiling from their heat.
“There was something about this warrior hunter man that always made her want to jump on him, straddle his waist and offer herself to him.” – Bridget
The only reason I did not rate this book higher is because Bridget got on my nerves at times. I get that she was agitated because the rescue seemed more like a death sentence if she could not return home above the water. Plus the scientist in her wanted to see proof before trying to comprehend what seemed unbelievable.
The hunky, muscular merman that wants to do delicious things to her body should have made up for it. There was no need to for her to lash out and say the hurtful things she did. She made a lot of assumptions and projected her own insecurities when she should have been less uptight and more forthcoming with communication.
Should you buy? Yes. It was an enjoyable read. This is a standalone novel and the first in the Lord of the Abyss series. After reading, I wanted to know more about the merr people in the underwater city. Yea, I bought the next two books. More on that later.
