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.


My Review:
I haven't really read any self published books in awhile..not because I haven't wanted too but I just haven't seen any ones that sparked my interest. I happened across Flukes on Amazon a couple of weeks ago and I decided to give it a shot. Overall, I was surprised on how much I enjoyed Flukes.

While the beginning of Flukes was a little bit rocky, I have to say eventually the book got progressively better and I think that this series really has the potential to be something great. What definitely worked for me in this book was how great the main character, Meena was. She is a very strong and independent character which I really liked. At first, I didn't think I was going to like Meena but I'm glad she turned out to be a really great character! Plot wise-this book was really short which was both good and bad. It was good because the plot moved along quickly and it was fun short read. I did think, however, the author could have expanded more on the plot and dragged out a few scenes that seemed kind of rushed.

The only thing that kind of bothered me about this book was the romance. It definitely was sort of "insta-love" which I didn't really like. I wish Meena and Blake had more development into their relationship instead of falling in love right away.

Overall, Flukes definitely has the potential to be a great series. With a little bit more plot development I can really see this series becoming something great. If your interested in reading any sort of mermaid type book check this book out!
