Under the Surface: Review
Before I start this review, let me say that I am so glad I got the chance to read this. I thank Instagram for connecting me with so many bloggers, reviewers, and authors. One of those is Sonya Blake.
I received this book for review purposes. This does not, in any way, affect my rating.
I don’t read enough paranormal romance and I’m wondering why. The ones I do pick up I end up really liking. But they typically involve vamps or werewolves or even ghosts. Never have I read one involving a siren, a selkie, and a skinwalker.
Yes, you heard right.
After a bad breakup, Kaia moves from the south to the east coast where she plans to sell her parent’s home. But before she settles in, she meets Sam, a fisherman. After an accident sends them both plunging into the Atlantic, Kaia discovers that she’s a siren. And f87k-boy Sam finds himself falling for her.
In the midst of a steamy (I can’t wait to tell you about the sexy scenes OMG) romance, Kaia finds herself in a battle with a local siren clan while Sam confronts his own secrets. Both fights could rip these two apart if they let it.
I can’t remember the last time I fell in love with a book couple. I mean, I’m rooting for these two, to the ends of the earth BUT LIFE WANTS TO KEEP THEM APART AND I CANNOT STAND IT. UGH. The romance was sweet, not insta-love per se, but way steamier than Maas or Ward could ever put to words. I mean, this one scene…and then this other one….and then THAT ONE.
Well-written, impressive characters, drool-worthy sex scenes, extreme power plays, an antagonist to truly hate, this book is for anyone who likes J.R Ward, Patricia Briggs, and Charlaine Harris, to name a few that come to mind. I definitely think everyone should give Kaia and Sam a try.
