Ohmysweetgoodness! Galen is so adorable. Every thing he does, I find adorable. I wish he was real and I know him because I want to pinch his cheeks for being to damn adorable. Every character is also likable/lovable, even Rayna, Galen's twin, who seems to be the mean girl type. But for 20-year-old twins, they seem immature, especially Rayna. I still love all the characters presented in this novel, even Emma's mom who makes funny remarks.

Ok so this was really good. I haven't really read many mermaid books, so this was refreshing.

I had conflicting feelings on this book although most of them were good. First lets get the synopsis out of the way to help me explain a little my feelings. Galen is a Syrena or 'mermaid' prince who is an ambassador for humans. Dr. Milligan is a human who knows about his kind and Syrena law says that staying on land for too long is against the law.

This was a fun book. I read the first chapter on Barnes & Noble and then I HAD to read it. That first chapter is so funny I laughed out loud. My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next... grrr

Really enjoyed it, but totally guessed the ending. :) Can't wait for the sequel.

I don't know why there are so many one-star reviews for this book. I've been kept entertained the entire way. I think it's a cute, little fluff of a book. Perfect fodder for a bit of guilty pleasure reading. I look forward to book II. The cliffhanger ending pretty much sealed the deal for me already!
