by Kimberly Llewellyn
This is another one of those books that is hard to put down. In fact, it had me on the edge of my seat. Kimberly Llewellyn’s vision of mermaids in Siren Call is that of a not particularly nice group of ladies. Indeed, “sea bitches” is an apt description. This particular species can best be described as predatory with any reasonably good-looking male in the seaside town of Melody Point as the prey. These mermaids are busily scarfing up the males for breeding purposes and there is only one woman who stands between the mermaids and the grand prize. (Think what you like guys, there can be too much of a good thing.)
The book is a joy to read as it is remarkably free of typos. This reviewer only counted a hand-full in the Kindle edition. Perhaps the only disappointment is that the sub-plot concerning the heroine’s best friend seems to be unresolved. Her boyfriend is MIA but there is no closure.
There are plot twists and fight scenes a-plenty and the sex scenes don’t get in the way of the plot.
The target audience is adult females but this bit of “chick-lit” can easily be embraced by guys without their feeling a bit girly to do so.
Siren Call is the first in a series by Kimberly Llewellyn and leaves the reader hungry for the next installment.
