I guess the biggest of what bothered me was that I wasn't sure how I felt about the way it was done. I like the mermaid premise (I like mermaids, period), and I'm a big fan of almost anything that involves mermaids, but I had this uneasy feeling about the entire tone of the book. Certainly, it doesn't take itself ser ...more
When Logan Hardington finds the beautiful Angel (now with legs rather than fins) hiding on his boat it certainly seems like the Catch of a Lifetime. The fact that she’s naked (she is a Mer after all) and his six-year-old son is standing on the pier is a bit of a problem, but Logan just l ...more
I think that has to do with the fact that a child is involved in this story. Children always seem to pull at the h ...more

Catch of a Lifetime is the third book in the Tritone Trilogy about Mer (folk). In Fennell’s first two books, we were introduced to two brothers. Angel, the heroine of Catch of a Lifetime was featured in both those stories and now we get to see her find a love of her own. She’s a little wild and eccentric. She’s also obsessed by human culture and wanting to save the planet—which is what ultimately lands in her the way of Log ...more
There's an amazing sea-human fusion dialect:
"So we're not going to eat her?" Lou, a hunter lured out of retirement by the promise of a royal tar get, started frothing at the mouth—never a good sign. "Then why the fuck did you trawl me along, Har? This is bullsharkshit."
There are manly human men: "...Angel turned around and — Hit a wall. And not the plastered k ...more

Logan Hardington is almost speechless when he sees the young nude woman sleeping on his deck the next morning. Although he would like to do more than just look, he quickly covers her up with a blanket so his young son doesn't get more than an eyeful.

So here's the burning question - if the High Counselor is granted immortality, as is his heir, and any daughters upon marriage.... Where are our heroine's grandparents? Aunts? Well?
So what did I actually think of the book? Meh. Oh, it had its moments. It also had its moments of eye rolling, etc. Won't get into the h's mental proselytizing about the ...more
Angel wants to give Michael his most beloved birthday gift (a real live mermaid) while also getting to know his father and getting him to help her in her mission to stop humans from destroying the oceans. Logan has never met a woman who cared as much about the same things ...more
Her mission of improving Mer-Human relations to reduce pollution makes sense and it's interesting to read her reactions to life on land. Her fascination with the "girly things" like fabrics and all sorts of clothes that aren't waterlogged is pretty funny as well. Her love in ...more
Yes, Mers are supposed to be enchantresses, temptresses and downright gorgeous from head to foot but I was hoping something deeper would come from this book -- something not shallow and superficial despite their gorgeous looks and sweet voice. But meh. Like Reel and Rod, their significant other fell in love with them becaus ...more
Catch of a Lifetime is a heart warming tale. Angel and Logan's story is filled with wonderment and adventure. They have a great connection that is hard to deny. Not to mention sizzling hot! I have really ...more
Also, despite the research she put into marine life, there was one passage where a bird was chiding a lizard for its dinosaur ancestors and how birds are so much better - well anyone who's read anything about dinosaurs in the last 10-15 years would have known that scientists now believe *birds* to be the ...more
Book 3 of the Tritone trilogy, Catch of a Lifetime, was a cute read with an adorable little boy and hot papa that will have you reeled in from the begin ...more
This is about a mermaid who is worried about the environment (suck it up, FernGully) and jumps onto a random boat and falls in love with the dude on said boat. That's about it. Everything else was filler.
If this had more sex and 200 less pages it might have been an okay erotica novel. ...more
