A sexy, sun-soaked tale about a tail-wearing girl who makes a lot of waves—perfect for fans of Lauren Layne, Meghan Quinn, and Christina Lauren.
Ocean-loving Kyra Goodwin had to give up her dream of becoming the female Jacques Cousteau in order to take care of her father and brother, but being a mermaid at the Cape Cod Aquarium is pretty fintastic as far as alternative careers go.
Of course, life as a half-fish/half-woman isn’t all sunken treasure and Ariel twirls. Kyra has to deal with perpetually pruney fingers, eyes irritated by saltwater, and bratty kids on the daily, plus her glam alter ego can make dating really weird. (So many men have pervy siren-of-the-sea fantasies!) When she meets hunky surfer Cade, and he’s into her without knowing what she does for a living, Kyra thinks she’s finally won the romance lottery.
Unfortunately, Kyra’s plans for a carefree summer of catching waves with her new boyfriend run aground when Sea Star Beach, a place that holds great sentimental value for her, is taken over by a big-city developer who wants to build an exclusive resort. Kyra’s crusade to save her beloved beach threatens both her job and her relationship with Cade as does her growing closeness with her irresistibly broody merwrangler, Declan, whose precocious daughter is intent on playing matchmaker.
When a new family drama arises just as Kyra receives an offer that would turn her greatest desire into reality, she’s torn. Will she do what’s expected of her, or dive in and follow her heart?
I LOVED this giggle inducing, feel REAL good, fun loving romance! In The Swim of Things was and is a FABULOUS, Tail-waving story that had my heart fluttering wildly and had a smile blooming on my face from the very start.
This is my first book I have read from Tracie Banister and it sure as hell won't be my last! I LOVED the way this book was written. And the thought of being a "mermaid" is magical and perfect and I LOVED the idea of a heroine who was one and thought it was the best job. I would SO want to audition for one myself if I could. Kyra was magnificent too. Wild, passionate, beautiful, smart and sweet I liked her right away. This story was full of drama, fun, sexy times and the perfect amount of chemistry and fun in the sun. I do hope there will be more "mermaid" stories because this book had me hooked! This is the PERFECT book to take to the beach too! It will put a smile on a readers face and have them going after their dreams in full force!
In The Swim Of Things gets a TAIL-TASTIC FIVE SPARKLING STARS!
