I spent all night reading this book because I couldn't get to sleep, my two youngest ones are sick and wanted me to rock them and tuck them into bed repeatedly. I needed something easy on my sleep deprived brain to pass the time and this was it...

One of my first erotic romance books I read years ago. I love themes that deal with a post apocalyptic world where water is scarce. Syndi had always been a little different born with gills she illegally takes a swim in the restricted pond area when she discovers there is a anothe world...with people that live underwater!

This one feed my sci-fi addiction and was sexy as hell. Win Win.
I'm writing this a year (about?) after I read this book, so most of this is purely off memory. But I remember really loving the idea of this book. In some ways this was executed so perfectly, but in others is was abrupt and didn't match the flow of what I imagined would happen. I saw so much potential in this book that though it should really be a 3 starred review... I'm giving it a 4.

This was a great book, of course you had sex in it and that part was great. What really made the book was the wild world that you entered when reading the story. It kept my interestas much inbetween the hot stuff, as much as the hot stuff did.
