Blurb: Bound by a curse, two mermen find the greatest love of their lives, but can they keep it?

Justin is a merman who has been raised on land. He hates his fins and wants nothing to do with his heritage.

Lucas is an ambitious merman who has lived his whole life in Atlantis. He has spent his adulthood hiding his sexuality because homosexual relationships are forbidden in the underwater city. Now he has been sent on a mission by King Nereus to locate his oldest son and bring him back to Atlantis to take his place as the heir to the throne.

Although his mission seems impossible, Lucas finds help from the Atlantean Goddess of Love, little knowing that she has her own reasons for bringing Lucas and Justin together.
Justin is no stranger to immortals, having been raised by two of them, but he has no idea of the consequences of angering the Goddess of Love.

When he insults her, she curses him to find love only to lose it forever shortly after. As the love ‘em and leave ‘em type, Justin isn’t overly concerned, at least until Lucas enters his life and he sees how the curse will end.

Together they could have the greatest love of their lives, but only if they can appease the furious goddess before their time runs out.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the second book in the Merman & Magic series. We are introduced to both Justin and Lucas. Both merman but from very different lives. Justin was raised on land by Caspian and his sister. He does not want anything to do with his heritage as a merman. He seemed like a stubborn yet smart man.

I liked the way he stuck to what he believed in throughout the story. His temper did tend to get in the way at times and land him in hot water especially with a goddess.

Lucas has lived in Atlantis his entire life and is in the running to become the senior advisor to the king. He is also gay which is strictly forbidden in Atlantis. The king sends him on a mission that will change his life forever in more ways than. I loved Lucas’ character. He was sweet yet determined. His feistiness at times made me chuckle. I did not like the way Otus, another merman, treated him.

This story is an adventure from land to sea with interesting details about the oracles and goddesses of the mermaid people. I loved how in spite of getting himself in trouble Justin was determined to set things right. There is a lot of drama throughout between different characters both new and old from the first book. I loved Lucas reactions to different things on land and when he was introduced to a sex toy.

A delightful read with some hot sex to add spice. Even though Justin and Lucas got off to a rocky start they seemed to care about each other deeply. I felt that Otus’ character was not finished and kept expecting at any moment for him to cause more mayhem than he did. Other than it was a great read.
