Goodreads Summary:

Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom...
Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

I've read very few mermaid books. In truth I shy away from them just a bit because of the "fish factor." I just have a hard time with slimy things. But I absolutely loved this book. I think Banks did an excellent job with the opposing viewpoints. It was funny but still heartbreaking at times.  There were also times when I wanted to strangle Galen. The narrator did a great job. Overall this was a terrific listen that made the hours at work fly by.
