Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Released Date: July 21, 2011
Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. Each day she goes to school like a normal teenager, and each night she must swim, or the pain will be unbearable. She is a siren - a deadly mermaid destined to lure men to their watery deaths. After a terrible tragedy, Lexi shut herself off from the world, vowing to protect the ones she loves. But she soon finds herself caught between a new boy at school who may have the power to melt her icy exterior, and a handsome water spirit who says he can break Lexi's curse if she gives up everything else. Lexi is faced with the hardest decision she's ever had to make: the life she's always longed for - or the love she can't live without?
The cover is nice, but the guy don't seem to be like Cole.. not at all... but at least Lexi is pretty with the shiny scales on her leg to represent that she's not human exactly.
I simply love this book, not only because it's about Sirens, but also have a sweet romance and the lesson of letting go of someone you love dearly. I really love listening and being in Lexi's life. How she met Steven and his best friend, Cole, then to her drowning him. How she have to swim, so she don't hurt anyone, but found someone by her lake. It was a beautifully written book and I love Cole and Lexi together. I love Cole and how he have always loved her, but didn't say anything because she was in love with his best friend, This story is just like a love story. I really love it.There is some parts that can make you want to punch that pretty face of her and screamed, but it was a good book. Cole was the best, always chasing her, loving her and her finally letting go of her love and of her curse.
★★★★★ 5/5 STARS for the plot, the writing and the couple!
