Review ~ Flukes by Nichole Chase
Meena has a secret guarded closely by her family—a secret as dangerous as the sea, and buried just as deep. When court appointed community service workers are assigned to Flukes, the family-owned animal sanctuary, everyone is on high alert. It doesn’t help that Meena finds herself attracted to sexy-as-sin Blake Weathering, one of the new workers. If he wasn’t so distracting, she might be able to land Flukes a much-needed cruise line contract.
Blake Weathering, the first in his family to attend public school, has developed a tough image. Unfortunately it lands him in trouble. Now banned from his high school graduation ceremony, getting his diploma is dependent upon a community service gig cleaning fish crap. No diploma, no trust fund fortune—and no way to escape his overbearing father. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a mysterious girl with teal eyes who pulls at his heart strings.
When Blake discovers Meena’s secret, they are both thrown into a desperate search for information about her past. Two worlds pull them in opposite directions, and they will have to fight to hold onto all that really matters.

Speaking of the romance I thought it was brilliantly done. I am a fan of the love hate relationship, it was so cute. I didn't like Blake at first but once he started to get closer to Meena you realize how great he is. I enjoyed seeing them fall in love and their relationship developing.
I think the added conflicts were great and kept the story going. If it was just the romance side of i, it may have gotten a little slow. The introduction of other mermaids was really great. I would love to read more of this series if not from Meena and Blake but Jacen or Mirelle. I want to know their story and more of how the mermaid society works!
I definitely recommend this story it was such a fun read that captured my heart!
