Seventeen year old Valerie used to want the ripped lifeguards to rescue her, but her perceptions explode after a freak diving accident at the local pool when she’s rescued by a shy, intelligent merman named Wyn.

Firstly, I'm going to admit that I don't read a lot of fantasy, but the few that I've read had the same cliches and predictable plots.

I've read of pirates and princes and dragons and Viking warriors why not a mermaid tale... Or in this particular case - Merman.
Lasera proved to be a delightful and wholesome story from page 1. I could hardly put it down as I kept reading to find out what happened next.
The characters are intriguing and relateable. The relationship bond formed between Valerie and Wyn is sweet and feels natural, a far cry from your typical cliche ya Romance. As to the author, I love the imagery she weaves through
