Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen — literally, ouch! — both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . .

Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

First Line:
"I smack into him as if shoved from behind."

Mermaid, I mean, Syrena story. In this book they are not called mermaids, thankyouverymuch.
A lot of sass and funniness in this book as well as a different look at those who live underwater.
Emma is a clumsy human. Galen is a hot syrenian prince. They meet on the day Emma's best friend is killed.
Emma is independent, sassy, fun and in serious trouble of falling for a bossy guy named Galen.
Galen is strong, attractive, twin brother who is from the ocean. He feels a connection to Emma and finds clues to the fact she is one of them. But not because really, she might be his enemy.
Each character has his or her own voice. I sometimes got confused because there are a lot of names and history. 
Also, the change in point of view from chapter to chapter confused me a little until I got use to it.

V: No
L: No
S: kissing
