Under the Surface was a delightful surprise, and it sucked me into the pages in minutes. The story starts with Kaia, who has moved to a new town after she has lost both her job and boyfriend. The book starts out as dual POV (there will be a third later on), and Kaia soon meets Sam, a fisherman. I found myself rooting for them from the beginning. There was a spark between them right away, and the chemistry was on point (you guys know how much I love chemistry!).
One night they are caught in a storm while on Sam’s ship, and they both end up in the sea, threatening to drown. Kaia manages to save him and brings him to an alcove. There, she discovers her legs have disappeared; in its place is a scaled tail. From this point on, both Sam and Kaia undergo a whirlwind of activities, and my heart pounded throughout the book for them. I enjoyed the writing style, and how the characters struggle and grow into finding their beliefs and norms. Their adventure was gripping, and I enjoyed every second of it!
