Wild Blue Under is a wonderful story that I embraced quite quickly. Its a very fast and quick story that lets you escape reality for a time and boy did I love this book. Its not an epic romance, or one that will knock you socks off. However its a enjoyable and very entertaining story that I couldn’t get enough of. What I have admired about this authors work is her humor. Her writing is very engaging and quick witted and you just want more and more of it. And man all the bantering that we see and not JUST among the main characters is quite hilarious. What with our talking seagulls. Normally second characters that you love aren’t talking birds that are creative, funny and handles tough situations and an obsession with salty fries!! hehe I do love a solid mermaid romance, and this book ended in such a wonderful way. Our heroine is very confused through much of the book though, which is understandable. She starts to experience things she never really thought that she would have to or never even imagined were real. Rod is very patient, only giving her small bits of information at a time, knowing she would never believe him if he told her the whole truth of who she really is and her destiny. But seeing these two come together, and become true partners was quite sweet. Rod and Valerie just made me smile and kept me happy. Their relationship is the contented type of romance that you don’t always see in this genre. It had a very realistic quality to it which I gravitated towards. Of course we have other elements that made this book seem lighthearted and just plain FUN!!
Wild Blue Under is a story of magic under the sea, a heartwarming and lively story to warm you up and keep you wanting more!!
