Goodreads Description: It had never occurred to him to kiss anyone—before he met Emma. These days, it’s all he can think about, her lips on his. The day Emma meets Galen on the beach is the day her life changes forever. Galen is the prince of the Syrena sent to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. When Emma runs into him—literally, ouch!—their connection is immediate and powerful. Could this be the girl? After several encounters, Galen is convinced Emma is the one. But how can he convince her of her gift? And how can he make his feelings for her disappear? She’s the key to his kingdom, she can’t be the key to his heart.
I first would like to say it took me 3 months to finish this book and that has nothing to do with the quality of the book. It took me so long to finish this book because of school and my personal life. I actually really enjoyed reading this book. I feel like there is not many Mermaid books in the Young Adult market and they are one of my favorite creatures to read about. I did like that after spring break, when I had to set this book on the back burner when I wanted to pick it up again it was very easy to get back into. I loved Emma’s story and learning about how she fits in to Galen’s life. I ship them so hard I just wanted them to get together! The reason why I gave this book 3.75/4 stars instead of a straight 4 or 5 is because I felt like nothing happened for the first 150 pages. Then when you got to the last 150 pages I felt like everything happened very quickly. I do have to say through the whole book I had two theories in the back of my head. One of them did turn out to be true, however it did still shock me when I read it. I overall liked this book for a light beachy read!
