Description: Kellan Murphy is a successful car dealer in Chicago, but he isn’t happy with his life. He finds his job boring and wants a change. After the sudden death of his lover he decides to move someplace warm. He sees an ad for the Florida Keys in a magazine and packs everything and moves to the Keys.

Kellan starts his new life as a fisherman and tour guide. He has his own home and boat, but the one thing missing is someone to share his life with. On a rare day off he decides to go fishing and what he finds at the end of his fishing line changes his life forever.

Review: I love mermaids and anything to do with under the sea. I used to watch shark week with my brother and love the planet shows! I also fell instantly in love with The Little Mermaid! So when I found a book out on a merman and a gay romance to boot I couldn’t wait to start reading.

The story takes place in the Florida Keys. Kellan, one of the main characters, is trying to find a reason to live when he has lost everything to live for. He finds some satisfaction in buying a boat and giving tours to the local tourist. During one of his days off he ends up fishing only to find Jaran hooked in his line. Jaran is half man and half fish, a merman, which Kellan had thought only existed in fairy tales.

Told from the point of view of both Kellan and Jaran the story leads us through discovering love in the deepest of oceans. Lily Sawyer takes through a tale of fantasy that keeps changing as we swim deeper in the story. The two main characters are well developed and offer an emotional ride as they fight to stay together. There is also a great message here about the pollution in our oceans and you can tell this is something Lily Sawyer is passionate about.

This was a very interesting story and I enjoyed the struggle with Kellan to try and find love again after he lost the man he loved, Frank. I would like to have seen a more emotional ride when finding out one could lose the other especially when things seemed so easily resolved. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy with mermen and the impact people have made on the environment.
