3.5- 4 Stars- Also reviewed at: Lady Jayne 's Reading Den ( Plot points mentioned deal with aspects contained in he book blurb) Is it just guppy love or a love as deep as the ocean?
^_^ The sea puns and mermaid fish slang were a little jarring, at irst, but son of swordfish ( as Lily would say), the I got into the flow, I ha all bubbly smiley reading them and at times even chuckling.
* cue Under the Sea music* I quit liked Quince, from the en, and his behavio towards Lily reminded me of little boys who pull the girl they like ’ s pigtails to get their attention.
I interpreted it was to show Lily being in denial about any attraction she was developing towards Quince, the bane of her existence, and blaming it on the effects of “ the bond ”, but after a while it just elt like Ms Childs was hitting the reader over the head with a baby whale with it.
^_^ ( If the puns in this review annoyed you, hen you will probably steer clear of Forgive My Fins!) A few of my fave quotes: ‘ " I do n't expect it, ” Quince says with absolute certainty.
" That 's real. " My voice is barely a whisper when I sk, " And fantasy? " " Believing she 'll ever kno the same pat. " " When he ulls ack, his eyes glow with the love I know is shining inside.
