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.
