Series: Heroes ever after #2
My review (buy book here)
I found this book interesting and read it fairly quick.
Aria is an Olympian swimmer but has been beaten down mentally by her mother, so she is understandable a little insecure about herself or not sure about who she is.
I thought it was sweet that he put on that tail for her.
It was quite fun to see a SEAL and an Olympian together because the understand the training regime and the mindset of a really dedicated person.
But I was not a huge fan of Erik and his “anti-woman” stance and I really hated that part of Aria’s appeal for him was how she could help with his business (a SEAL and a Olympian) and then he was so mad because he felt that she used him.
I received an ARC and I am leaving a voluntary review, but everything I write is my own opinion.

TRITON: A Little Mermaid Retelling
Aria—I teach mermaid fitness at a ritzy hotel next to the Naval Amphibious Base. I know better than to let one of those famous frogmen chase my tail. But in a moment of weakness, I submit to Erik, a tattooed badass Navy SEAL. After one night of incredible passion, I can’t stop thinking about his cocky ways and his dirty mouth.
Then I get the opport
unity to train to be the first female Navy SEAL.
When I show up on the first day of training, I’m horrified to realize that Erik is my BUD/S instructor. He’s the only person who stands in the way of me achieving my dream.
I’m no quitter. He can taunt me, tease me, and run me ragged, but I’ll never ring that bell.
Erik—Aria is the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. She won the gold medal for synchronized swimming and she looks like a little mermaid the way she moves underwater. Once I find out that the sexy redhead is teaching aquatic classes next to my base, I vow to do anything to make her mine.
After our mind-blowing night together, she vanishes. I ask around and learn she went away to train. I assume it’s for another synchro competition.
I’m dead wrong.
She shows up in BUD/S as part of the first class to let in women. I’m head instructor of Phase One, and there’s no way in hell I will lower the standards of my Team to please the brass and make a political statement.
It doesn’t matter how much I want her because she’s forbidden to me now. I’m the teacher and she’s my student. She will obey my every command.
