Fins are forever by Tera Lynn Childs
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews
On Lily Sanderson’s eighteenth birthday she’ll become just a girl—still a mergirl, true, but signing the renunciation will ink Princess Waterlily of Thalassinia out of existence. That leaves plain old Lily living on land, dating the boy she loves, and trying to master this being-human thing once and for all.
Now that Lily and Quince are together, mer bond or not, she’s almost content to give up her place in the royal succession of Thalassinia. But just when she thinks she has everything figured out, the waves start to get rough. Lily’s father sends a certain whirlpool-stirring cousin to stay with her on land. What did Doe do to get herself exiled from Thalassinia and stuck in terraped form when everyone knows how much she hates humans? And why why why is she batting her eyelashes at Lily’s former crush, Brody?
The seafoam on the raging surf comes when a merboy from Lily’s past shows up—Tellin asks Lily for something that clouds her view of the horizon. There’s a future with Quince on land, her loyalty to the kingdom in the sea, and Lily tossing on the waves in the middle. Will she find a way to reconcile her love, her duty, and her own dreams?
Tera Lynn Childs’s sequel to Forgive My Fins offers another tail-flicking romance with plenty of fun, sun, and underwater adventure.(Synopsis provided by goodreads)

I had so much fin reading this great beach read book. It picks up where the first one left off and the book was very light hearted and fun.
I loved Lily more in this one then I did in the first and Quince was great as well. The characters developed more during this book which was a great thing to see. We got to see more of Doe in this one then in the first, I wish we could have seen more of Aunt Rachel, hopefully in the next one we get to see more of her.
I loved how this one ended and I loved that we got to see a different part so to speak of Thalassinia that was really fun to see.
I am looking forward to the next book. This is a hard book to review without giving anything away, but the book was very fast paced and very fun.
