    Its not really an exaggeration to say I adored the first book, In Over Her Head about Rod's younger twin brother Reel and his love o'life Erica and eagerly looked forward to what adventures the stick in the mud Rod could get into while getting his own love o'life. Mer people are one of those devices in fiction that catch my attention pretty quickly. Hot Mer Men with ironic names, pop culture references with a distinctly Mer people twist, snarky f...

    "Wild Blue Under" is the second book of author, Judi Fennell's Mer Trilogy, and the first of hers I have read and definitely won't be the last, either! I will definitely going back and buying book #1 "In Over Her Head" which is about Reel, Rod's brother. However, "Wild Blue Under" didn't suffer at all as a stand alone.I will say first and foremost, I totally giggled at the Tritone's names, dad's name is Fisher, sons Rod and Reel. I have to throw ...

    This is Book #2 in the Tritone Trilogy and I liked it even better than the first book--which I liked alot! It's such a refreshingly different paranormal romance series and as impossible as Mer people may seem, Ms. Fennell does a magnificent job of making seem completely possible . The hero in "Wild Blue Under", Rod Tritone is the heir to the throne of Atlantis and ladies...he's positively delicious. The heroine, Valerie Dumere, is a spunky, indep...

    This is the second in the trilogy of Mer people. It took 358 pages to tell a story that might have done better as a short story. Compared to other authors who write about Mer People this lacked depth. The talking sea gull and other birds did not enhance the story line. Emotionally surface. Very little descriptive writing. Not interested in finishing the Trilogy.

    It had a lot fun ideas, but it was rambling and poorly written. Parts of the book were never really explained. It was a struggle to read for me as have the other books by this author. I will avoid her books in the future

    The fun and the intrigue continue in this second book in the Mer series by Ms. Fennell. This time, however, most of the action is inland instead of under the sea. I actually like this book a tad better than In Over Her Head. There’s still a slight lack of the family connection/emotion that I also wanted in the first book, but overall I was highly entertained throughout the story.Instead of fish as secondary characters, this time around we get b...

    I began this series a bit out of order, I started Wild Blue Under first. It did not confuse me as in the story line but I got a bit annoyed (maybe that is not the right word) with all the under the sea analogies. Every other page something fishy would pop up. For instance, "Oh, Hades!" or "That's it in a conch shell." I was a little tired of it by page 100. Then it began to mellow down. It was as if the longer Rod remained on land the less and le...

    Wild Blue Under, by Judi Fennell, is a fine successor to In Over Her Head and another enjoyable read. I would never have believed that stories of mermaids and mermen could be so intriguing till I started on this series. But Judi’s gentle humor and convincing imagination makes it easy for the reader to suspend disbelief and enjoy the curious ride.This second novel takes place mostly on land, with the Heir to the throne of Mer undertaking a task ...

    "Wild Blue Under" by Judi Fennell was a fast-paced, humorous adventure of story. I received this ARC from a friend at my local bookstore, and after reading the synopsis, decided to give it a read.Rod Tritone, Mer heir to the throne of Atlantis, has been dispatched on a mission to retrieve Valerie, a half-human, half-Mer, and bring her back to the ocean to claim the legacy her father left for her before he died. Rod thinks this will be an easy mis...

    I love Judi Fennell’s writing. Wild Blue Under is the second book in her Mer trilogy. It is a perfect complement to her first book, In Over Her Head (which I read earlier this year). I bided my time before jumping to this one because I knew she didn’t have that many books to choose from and I wanted to slowly savor what I could read.Wild Blue Under picks up with Rod—heir to the throne of the Mer kingdom. He’s the typical big brother with ...

    In Over Her Head, readers were introduced to Reel Tritone. Well in Judi Fennell’s latest release, readers are again brought back to the magical underwater of mermen and mermaids. This time it is Rod Tritone’s story.Rod’s father is set to retire soon. When this happens, Rod will become the new Mer-King. Unfortunately there is one problem…the council has rules that Rod has to marry. Besides we call now that you can’t rule without a Queen ...

    I`m just happy it ended the way I wanted it to end.Wild Blue Under has a nice story line. It came to a point where it was thrilling and I literally was disappointed of Rod's decision of wanting to abandon everything that I took a break from reading it because I was having a hard time believing that the book is about to follow the same plot of In Over Her Head. But alas, it didn't hence the 3 stars.Though it was a good read, it does have some plot...

    Second book in the series and I didn't enjoy it as much as the first. There were a lot of things in this book that bothered me, and I would be tempted to give it two stars except I loved Livingston. He is what made the book in my opinion. Don't get me wrong. Rod and Valerie are good characters. I liked their story and I liked the mythology woven into the story and the way Valerie inherits who she truly is. It was fascinating. But there were thing...

    I didn't like Valerie Dumere at all. She is easily led and traipses off with Rod Tritone without the slightest idea why. Rod pussy-foots around the reason for the coast visit with some bogus inheritance thing but doesn't actually explain what is going on until that last few chapters of the book. I just couldn't see any normal female person going off on a wild-goose chase with a gorgeous guy and a talking seagull with no real explanation. Then whe...

    A Refreshing ReadI adored Wild Blue Under, the second book in Judi Fennell's Mer(maid) trilogy. This fast-paced and witty paranormal tale stars super-responsible Mer-stud Rod Tritone, heir to the undersea throne. Before Rod can be crowned king, he must fulfill an oceanic council order to return a Mer princess to her rightful place as governess of the South Pacific. Only problem is that princess, Valerie Demure, is: half human, lives in landlocked...

    1 1/2 stars. I probably shouldn't rate this book so low, it wasn't TERRIBLE in a painful sense, but it was profoundly annoying and my eyeballs hurt from rolling them, so, there ya go. The first 2/3 of the book is borderline crap. I liked Rod, I liked the idea of the storyline, but the execution was a complete failure. The heroine talked to herself constantly about how hot Rod was, then followed it with a "did I just think that" sorta line. I mean...

    This is the second book in the series by Judi Fennell, with In Over Her Head being the first, and once again I really enjoyed it. For some reason, I had a hard time following what was happening in this book. I think I was trying to remember what happened in the first one and relate it to this one, but it wasn't necessary to do that. I loved the characters. Valerie seemed very real and down-to-earth, Rod seemed like a hot Mer, and Livingston, the ...

    Well...this was an improvement over the first whose h had me gritting my teeth. OTOH, the H's steadfast refusal to explain anything until they got to the ocean (from Kansas?!) was irritating, and the h not putting him through the wringer for that, unbelievable. Yeah; someone appears, insists that I go to the ocean half a continent away, has a talking seagull with him, and won't explain the whole story while every bird in the state is dropping thi...

    A really enjoyable book. Mermaids!!! Sorry...Mer.I laughed, held my breath, gripped pages, smiled, wanted to knock out some characters, enjoyed some little side parts (Especially Maybelle), and this had a great HEA. I would definitely like to finally get to read the first book. This may really be another series for the shelf. The humor was great, the personalities varied and interesting, and the journey was unexpectedly gripping a little fun feel...

    Valerie Dumere doesn't know it yet, but she's destined for greater things. Rod Tritone, next in line to be King to the Mer people walks into her life and turns it upside down. With his good looks and charm, Valerie can't help being attracted to him.Wild Blue Under is a riveting tale. This story is filled with danger, romance and intrigue. Ms. Fennell has wowed me again with her world of under the sea characters. While I enjoyed the romance betwee...

    Thanks to Hachette books for sending me the second in Fennell's trilogy. To read what I thought of the first one and check out my interview with Judi Fennell, go here. It just gets better and better in the Triton Trilogy. Lots of humor, imagination, and hot sexual tension amongst these pages. Not too much sex (but when it's there "by Gods" is it there!) and lots of adventure which will have you reminded of "The Little Mermaid" with it's talking b...

    Like Over Her Head, the first book in the Tritone Trilogy, Wild Blue Under is a funny, pun-filled read with engaging characters, lots of sexual tension (I'm amazed the hero and heroine didn't die in some of the hairier situations 'cause this couple has a hard time keeping eyes and hands off one another), and a very solid fantasy world created by the author. The undersea kingdom and its residents and rules are very well thought out and the interna...

    Having had mixed feelings about the first book in this series, I thought I would give book two a try (since I found it super cheap). I want to say I enjoyed this one a little better than the first, but I still had some problems with it. Mainly, I didn't care for the storyline with the birds, at all (Livingston was fine, and even JR, but the two females birds seemed so out of place and unnecessary). But in the end, I found that I liked Rod and Val...

    A cute book with mer people as the focus. I loved Val and how she just rolled with the punches, talking seagulls no problem, birds bombing the car no problem, finding out your have a tie to the mythical mer people and Atlantis no problem, a hot guy taking an interesting in you there is where you question things. How so much like a woman! Rod was kind of a bland character. I did like the part with his family and would love to see more about them. ...
