She wanted her life to change ... he wanted his to stay the same.
Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Swimming and spending time with Tatiana, her best friend, are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college, and Ash hopes to finally ditch her longtime crush for Finley, Tatiana's twin brother. But when Tatiana and her family fail to return home after a family emergency, Ashlyn makes an irrational decision to deal with her loss of them.

Finley Helton and his family are good at blending in with humans as they run their sailing charter business in Lake Tahoe. The truth is they guard an ancient secret. When a not so routine meeting forces Finley, Tatiana and their mother to return to their underwater home of Natatoria, they learn Fin's father will lead a dangerous mission. They must stay in Natatoria and wait for his return, but Fin can't stay caged up for long.

Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, and a simple lifesaving kiss will change their lives forever.

My Review
Not for me. I found the first half of the book boring. I thought that the Ever narrated chapters held the story back. Her chapters had nothing to do with what was going on with the merpeople. I think that the book would have been better if it focused on Fin with perhaps a couple of Ever pov charters spaced through since what is going on with the two will be important in book two.

Toward the end it starts to get better. You learn why Fin family act the way the have. They also learn some things about themselves that they didn't know. I don't know, I in a way I want to know what happens to Fin sister but then I don't want to get it an experience another first half like this one.
