Reviews for The Vicious Deep
The Vicious Deep
So, Tristan Hart. Boy with the ridiculously pretty turquoise eyes. Swim team star. Lifeguard. Kind of adorable, kind of an ass. Tristan has a reputation with the ladies, and because of this, the one girl he actually wants, doesn't want to take a chance on him. I really liked the way the romance is handled in this book. Falling for the best friend is one of my favourite tropes, after all.
It's a pretty light read. There are amusing moments. I kind of wanted the story to be darker. I wanted more of the vicious. There are a lot of action sequences, and some of Tristan's friends end up as cannon fodder, but it still stayed on the light side. I think this is mostly because of how Tristan reacts to things, he's very laid back most of the time. Not that I want angst, but sheesh, I would be a lot more upset if I suddenly had a tail.
This book would probably make for a pretty movie, being that all the characters are so colourful. Mermaids are gorgeous, shiny things who can whip an entire school into hormone addled frenzy.
I will probably read the second book, because I want to know more about Gwen (who stole the show in the last 3rd of the book to me) and I am seriously hoping for a sex scene just so we will once and finally know where exactly Tristan's junk goes while in merman form. I can't be the only curious one.
I'd give this book 3.5 stars. Rounding up due to lack of halves. by LindieDB
