Seventeen-year-old Emma Harris is drowning on dry land.
No one knows whatâ€™s happening to her, and sheâ€™d like to keep her evolution from human to mermaid a secret, but the truth is getting harder and harder to hide. From her adoptive family, from her friends, and especially from the irresistible James Phelps.
Her time in the ocean is spent dodging a possessive merman, while her time on land is split between caring for her special-needs brother and squeezing in every last possible moment of human life. She soon realizes falling for James is unavoidable when he constantly comes to Emmaâ€™s rescue and somehow manages to see through her carefully constructed icy facade to the vulnerability she lives with every day. Everything about James makes Emma yearn for a life on land she just can’t have.
When Emmaâ€™s brother disappears on her watch, James is the only person she trusts to help her save him. But even if they can save her brother, nothing can prevent her return to the sea.Â Whether she likes it or not, Emma is changingâ€”unable to breathe without yielding to the tideâ€”and it’s only a matter of time before she’s forced to surrender forever.
