Arianna always felt like she didn’t belong in the world where she was born. Ever since she was little, she used to hide behind the rocks in the sea, and watch the human family who spent their summers on that island. Over the years, there was nothing she wished more than to be like them, especially so she could get close to Blake, the human boy who she saw turn into a troubled teenager and then, an unhappy man.
Once her dad grew tired of her dreams and hopes for a reality that is not her own, Arianna is thrown into an arranged marriage, and her only way out of it is to make a deal with the power-hungry man who will give her everything that she has ever dreamed of. Dreams that turn into nightmares as she watches Blake’s world fall apart, because of her and Blake’s inability to control their desires for one another.

Stalking info -
I'm not going to write another synopsis, just my views. First, I must say I wasn't sure about the mermaid thing....but hey, I write about werewolves and they aren't my thing either. Well slap me silly, what a fun read. Mermaid loves human, who is engaged (or almost) to another human...to a sinister brother, a horrible man, a lovely child and pissed off ocean. My kind of angst, romance, imagination, and rainy afternoon read. It didn't rain for me, but rain would have made the mermaid thing that much better. Although the book is NA, I would be comfortable with 14+ to read. Just the right amount of love and dammit that cliff hanger! Oh my!
For people that don't have an imagination and believe in love or paranormal tales (tails) of mermaids, you might want to steer clear.
I received an ARC of this book by the author in trade for an honest review.
My Rating = 5 fairies
