Mermaid mythology meets Native American lore. 

She was irresistible to every man…except one 

Lily Borsage is the ultimate siren: gorgeous, aloof and irresistible to all the men in Bayou La Siryna. All of them, that is, until Nashoba Bowman comes back to town. The Native American kid whose innocent first kiss Lily remembers fondly is now all grown-up, hot as an Alabama summer—and immune to Lily's charms. What self-respecting mermaid could resist finding out more? 

But Nash has a dark history that puts any woman he loves in grave danger, and a heritage of power he isn't ready to accept. And Lily has a secret that no mortal man can ever know. When a mysterious enemy starts menacing Lily, they will both have to risk everything—and embrace their deepest destinies—if they want to survive.

*This book can be read as a standalone and has no erotic content.

Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone. While I wasn't able to read the first two books (yet), I still enjoyed reading Lily and Nash's story.

I liked that they were childhood friends but they separated when Nash had family trouble.

Lily is a full siren and because of her allure as a Siren, people misjudged or exaggerated her love life. In a sense, some of it were her fault but she acknowledged that. Lily might have barriers but she is loyal to her family even if her mother wants her to marry a merman. In this, she too wants to find true love. Then comes, Nash, the Native American who used to be her friend and her first kiss. As she tries to bait Nash with her Siren wiles, Nash is immune to her. This of course puzzled her at the same time while they both have feelings of lust for each other, Nash tries to avoid Lily because of his past in women.

At first, I thought Lily's personality was shallow but then I learned more about her and I understood her. It's the same with Nash since he used to be a lady's man (still is).

I liked how Lily stood up for herself and that she's very loyal to her sister especially to one particular person who is always let down by her mother. She's protective of her family and will do anything to help them. Plus, even though other females treated her badly, she still was able to treat them kindness.

Her relationship with Nash was both funny and frustrating. Like her I wondered why Nash was immune to her. I finally got the answer with that twist somewhere. There's more to Nash and his heritage.

One other character I liked was Nash's grandfather. Even though he lead a good long life, I pitied him because of the decisions he made and when he lost his wife, Nash's grandmother.

I won't spoil the rest but all I can say that Nash's past is finally catching up to him which means Lily's in danger and he might be the only one who can save her.
