"Whirlpool" [Forces of Nature Series, Book 2] by Vivian Arend
My Book Summary : Chelsea has wanted to be with Braden for as long as she can remember, but other than the occasional flirt, he has kept her at arms length, more so now than ever before. However, over the past year he has been keeping the other guys from Jaffrey’s Cove (and their pod) away from her too, since he doesn't want anyone else to have her either, even though the people in their community (the merfolk) are known to share their females with one other man besides themselves. Yet every time Braden thinks of sharing Chelsea with any other guy, jealousy sweeps through him.
Chelsea has a plan though ... when Jamie comes into their life to help sort/catalog the items in Alexis' (the pod's ruler) house she plans to have some fun with him to make Braden get jealous enough to want to have more with her. However, soon a friendship blooms between Jamie and Chelsea, and now she's thinking about starting something up with him. Yet she's scared about losing out on Braden too.
But when they find that everyone has an instant connection to each other ... the heat turns up another notch!
My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, in truth if I didn't enjoy the sex scenes then I probably would have given this a 2 out of 5 stars. The plot was kinda dumb, but I did enjoy finding out more about the merfolk from Jaffrey’s Cove and their society. The characters were okay, but I enjoyed reading from Jamie's view point the best, mostly because I like that he was finding out all about their world.
For the most part the only way you won't enjoy reading the book on some level is if you don't like reading about gay love/lovemaking. Since yes they have a threesome (more than once), but since the guys aren't related (like they were in the first novel) they get into some kissing and more with each other. Therefore, if you aren't okay with reading that type of thing then I don't recommend this book for you.
I hope that once this series grows up a bit more the author will decide on writing a book about Thomas. Since he made an appearance in the first book and this one, so I can't wait to read his story. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
"Who the hell made you my moral adviser? Is it your job to go around seeing that all the merfolk are screwing only approved partners? I've heard about every one of your exploits, and you have the balls to say sex with me would be wrong? Don't be suck a fucking hypocrite. Face it, Braden either you want me or you don't."For more information on this book, series and/or any other books by Vivian, then please check out her website.
She held out her arms and pivoted on the spot, letting her arms rise about her head until she was back facing him, breast thrust forward, legs parted. He stared at her, still expressionless and she gave up. Her heart was breaking inside as she lowered her arms. ~ within Chapter 4
