REVIEW - The Merman's Kiss (Mates for Monsters #1) by Tamsin Ley
Release Date: 28 February 2017
Even Monsters Need a Mate
After the death of her child, Brianna seeks to end her life within the ocean’s final embrace. Instead, she falls into the arms of a sexy, sleek-tailed monster. He’s wild, seductive, and sets her blood on fire every time he touches her, and soon she begins to need him for more than his magic to breathe underwater. He might just give her a new reason to live.
Zantu has evaded the mate-bond for thirty-five years, dodging promiscuous mermaids with vile intents. Unlike mermaids, mermen bond for life, and Zantu refuses to accept the heartbreak most mermen die of. That is, until the glint of gold catches his eye, and a simple salvage mission turns to passion. Now he’s bonded to a human, and begins to wonder if bonding to the right mate might not be so bad. The problem? A finless female won’t live long among the dangers of the sea.
Now Zantu must choose between keeping her at his side, and keeping her safe. Either way, he’s sure he’ll end up with a broken heart.
Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, dangerous mermaids, and sexy merman secrets. Guaranteed HEA with no cliffhangers. Intended for mature audiences.
My Review 3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
I wasn't quite sure about this one at the beginning, as things between Brianna and Zantu move lightning fast to the point it feels like i rolled ever sentence.
I did like the fact that the mermaids were the baddies, yet the mermen were the ones that tended the babes and were the more emotional ones for a change.
The book is edited well and the story well written, there are just bits that seem a little daft or too fast, but otherwise this was an ok book.
