Ripple Review

Title: Ripple

Author: Mandy Hubbard

Pages: 260

Rating: 3.5/5

I liked it but there have been better love stories. I have been waiting on this book least a year and was able to find it at a used bookstore much to my surprise. Yay! So happy I got my hands on it and I read it straight away.
Lexi is a siren. She has closed herself off to everyone for two years since the death of Steven the one she loved. She killed him though she didn't mean to. It wasn't her fault she didn't know what she was. No one at school talks to her but Cole seems to see right through her and tries to get her to break down the wall she put up around her heart. Sweet! :D So they start a relationship together but then she meets Erik who knows what she is.
Erik tells her that they can break the curse if they can fall in love because it has worked for sirens and nix in the past. (a nix is what he is) The problem is that she's in love with Cole but she tries to love Erik so she doesn't accidentally kill someone again. Cole does his best to get her back but she pushes him away until the night he almost drowns. It was her fault and so she does her best to explain everything to him without scaring him away. They never expected someone to turn on them and almost kill them both but yet it happened anyway.
Will Lexi and Cole break the curse? Will Cole desert her like her father did to her mother? Or will they both be killed by the last person they thought would try to do so?
I must say I was taken back by one of the characters since I didn't expect them to be evil! I loved the character too! It wasn't fair! D: I did enjoy the book though. It is definitely a must read though it is a bit slow in the beginning. The action really picks up towards the end and I must say I was worried for the characters. Well I would've been if I hadn't taken a peek at the last page... Hope I didn't give too much away! :D
