When Rubi finds herself out on a singles cruise headed for the Bahamas, she can’t help but to wonder how her life has gone so horribly wrong. Many speed dates later and one drunken night on the deck sends Rubi head over heels, literally. She finds herself in the cold water of the Atlantic watching the boat she was cursing not long ago, sail off into the distance. Stranded in the middle of the ocean, she knows it’s only a matter of when she dies, not if. When three gorgeous identical strangers show up out of nowhere, Rubi is certain she is drunk and hallucinating. As they whisper dark promises in her ear and drag her into the dark abyss, she says goodbye to her pathetic life. Little does Rubi know, she is about to be thrust into a world full of magic, centuries old prophecies, sea monsters, and mermaids.
Love me some mermen! I love the premise of this story! Rubi is a hot freaking mess. She is on a singles cruise, gets a bit tipsy, and falls off the ship. She has chalked it that she is going to die. She wakes up in a swanky room with three incredibly handsome men. She thinks she had a crazy one night stand and is still on the cruise ship. Oh the things she feels and how she reacts to finding out that the three handsome men are actually cursed meren….and her mates….and then finding out about her true past! Oh the list goes on and on. She is the hope for these mermen to break the curse and bring life back to their realm. Then she realizes just how comfortable and at home she is. She is to be their queen, but has absolutely no queen-ish mannerisms. She is an absolute riot! Her hunky mermen all have crazy different personalities and each one worships her like the queen that she is. You really get to see their love for each other when other characters are introduced.
I was immediately sucked in with Rubi and her sarcasm. Then there are the three Z’s (the handsome mermen) and their crazy different personalities with all of their hotness. Smush this all together and you have a wonderful new world, full of intense love, laughter, and some hawt sexy time. Oh, and don’t let me forget the action. There are monsters out there that are full of hatred and nastiness. The battle between good and evil is never ending. I love how this story ended and am looking forward to the next in this series.
