BellaRose
Life is a series of little moments. From the rising sun to the sweet smell of freshly cut grass to the discovery of a beautiful baby girl.

Until Pennington James breaches my world and my soul.
 
Pennington
When my grandfather left me his house and asked me to take care of the home next door, he failed to mention anything about the woman who owns it. From the first time I met her, I knew BellaRose is beautiful with a caring heart. It’s that caring heart that has her hiding from the dark underbelly of our town. Keeping Bella safe is the perfect cover for my investigation. Falling in love with a baby and her savior is the last thing I wanted, but the heart is the ruler of love and mine wants Bella.

When Mariah’s guardian meddles in her life with magic, she causes more harm than good. The soul reapers are coming and there’s a werewolf hungry for merblood. All secrets wash ashore sooner or later, and Mariah’s about to discover hers.

Mixing a messy love life with deadly powers will whip up a storm of trouble. Can Mariah contain it or will she be swept up in its wake?

MY REVIEW

3.5 stars

Mermaid books are few and far between, so I was eager to read this one. Toss in some drama and romance, and it made for a good read.

This would have been a four or five-star book for me, but there were areas that were glossed over or just left unfinished. Too many things were thrown in for seemingly no reason. The beginning was a bit slow for me, and I struggled to really dig into the story, but by around chapter three, I didn’t want to put it down. The romance threaded into the story was well done and had me turning the pages. I’m a romantic at heart and couldn’t wait to see what happened. Would Mariah end up with Murray or Jace?

The secondary characters kept things interesting, even if there were parts I felt were needlessly added, particularly where Mariah’s “mum” was concerned and Jace’s mother. We see quite a bit of Murray’s sister, but part of her storyline seemed to have come out of nowhere and was left unresolved. Much like the soul reapers who are mentioned and supposedly feared, and yet they take up very little of the story and are almost an afterthought by the end. A surprise character, related to Mariah, makes an appearance but her role in the book seems almost forced. I think if the author had focused more on Mariah, Jace, and Murray, and threw in fewer random bits of drama, it would have streamlined the story more.

Overall, it was an enjoyable read. I really hope we’ll get to see more of these characters in future stories. I won’t spoil the book and tell you who Mariah ends up with, but their romance was both sweet and fiery. What’s not to love about fated mates?
