Greed and Other Dangers, by T.J. Nichols
Edra’s partner, Jordan, has just been promoted, and he’s on the trail of several stolen mythos artifacts. Together, they track the eggs to a colony of mermaids living in the bay near Alcatraz Island.
But trying to separate a mermaid from her treasure is asking for trouble.
As Edra and Jordan grow closer, they test the bounds of human-mythos relationships. But Jordan isn’t ready to mate for life, and Edra won’t pretend to be human for Jordan’s friends. With the hills on fire and a storm brewing in the bay—and in their bed—something’s got to give.
I absolutely LOVED this!
The book begins with the same Prologue as Book 1 – setting up the world for anyone who has spent some time since reading the first book. It also gives a Previously chapter, which lets readers catch up, before delving back into this complex and clever worldbuilding. I loved that they were included, but I didn't require either as I binged straight from Book 1 into Book 2.
“Edra was still looking straight ahead, as though he couldn’t bear to even glance at Jordan. His heart was filled with broken glass, and every beat cut and bled.”
