Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen — literally, ouch! — both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma’s gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . .
Told from both Emma and Galen’s points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance. From Goodreads.
I like how this story was told in both Galen and Emma’s POV. I also love how it was insta-lust but not love. They make each other tingle, which they find out because Emma is a klutz and runs right into his chest while on vacation in Florida with her best friend.
I felt bad for Emma because even though I could read Galen’s POV and knew how he felt about her, she didn’t and he had moments where he was an ass to her. Especially the student comment he passed to her or not telling her about her possibly having to mate with his brother.
While they find out what Emma is, because she is so very fair but has the right eye color. They train her but she only goes in the water while either Galen or someone else is there with her. Which leads to a lot of fighting between them, I found most of the fighting either really funny since Galen didn’t understand what she said to him or frustrating because they needed to just say how they felt.
Throughout the story there was a strange Syrian going in and out of the water by Emma’s house. I thought it was possibly someone who sensed her in the water but it ended up being a complete shock to me who it really was. I don’t want to give too much away but I really like how Galen tells Emma that he loves her no matter what happens next. Then he does something that is going to devastate her in the next book.
I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book. It should definitely be pretty awesome.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
