Rough start for this book for me. I was irritated by the simplicity of the language and story line and felt like I was going to hate the book. I plugged on and in the middle of the book I started to somewhat like it. It was an interesting story line that needs some development (better character development/plot/scenery... I had a hard time picturing things because there wasn't a lot of description. I really wish I could have pictured it better because it has so much potential) but overall was pretty good. It's a fast read. What I did really like about it was that it was in no way predictable. There were lots of twists and turns and I was never thinking oh I know what's going to happen next. Overall it was an ok book. Just read it for fun. I received the digital book from netgalley and the publisher for free in exchange for my honest review.

It is four years since Crystal meet and fell in love with Llyr. Since then she has gone to college, had boyfriends, and grown up. But now she is graduating from college, has no job, and finds herself back on Starfish Island. Once she returns she remembers her love of Llyr and tries to find him. But Llyr has grown and is now engaged to Princess Tara of the Timsah Kingdom. But Crystal learns she has magic and that it can possibly destroy Llry’s world. I have to admit that I’m so glad that it is four years later and Crystal has grown up. This alone made the book better than the first. I completely understood how she felt when she learned about Tara but it’s hard to deny that Llyr still has feelings for her. It was interesting how she had magic and how it could affect this world. I was surprised with how this worked out in the end. This is a great story and I admit that I liked it better than the first book. I really liked the mer world and how you get to explore so much more. If you like mermaid stories I recommend that you check this one out. I received A Thousand Salt Kisses Later from iRead Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

It’s been years since Crystal broke up with Llyr, but she can’t seem to get over him. Now that she has finished college, Crystal returns home for the first time since high school to find work. Of course she’s curious about Llyr, but she doesn’t want to dredge up the past if he’s over her. But when one of his friends contacts her, she becomes more tangled in his world than ever before. After all, a thousand kisses from a merman has power. A Thousand Salt Kisses Later provides a satisfying continuation of the first book. Where the first book ends on a sad note, with Crystal and Llyr breaking up out of necessity, this story brings them back together and overcomes the hurdles that separated them in the first place. Magic took up a bigger position in this story, and this time, the main antagonists were merpeople rather than a human corporation. Crystal was able to see a bit more of the mer world, too, which I was ecstatic about. The undersea world was fascinating and developed, with rulers, politics, and fashion. The romance was not what I expected. Llyr wasn’t physically with Crystal for most of the story, allowing Crystal to question his devotion for her and giving her the space to consider other mermen. I wish the relationship between Llyr and Crystal would have been more developed, but the story as a whole was much better than the first book. Considering how little of importance actually happens in the first book, I would almost say that it would have been better to shorten it as a novella or combine it with this second book; some of the details were necessary, but the first book was still lacking something. Also, let me warn anyone who cares that this book had cursing, drinking, and some near-sexual scenes in it. Overall, I enjoyed A Thousand Salt Kisses Later. I would recommend it to those who enjoy romance and mermaids. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

I did read the first book in this series and would suggest that the second book not be tackled as a stand-alone, since Crystal's background is needed to fully allow the story to develop. After four years, Crystal returns to Starfish Island and meets Llyr to discover that he's moved on from their romance and is now, engaged. She also learns of her own magic and must discover how to deal with all of it as this last twist endangers the entire mer world. This book has a slightly different feel to it than the first. The teenage Crystal from before has now matured into a fresh, college graduate. . .so this now hits the border of YA/NA. She returns with a little baggage this time too. She has a boyfriend of her own and no longer has the carefree life she did back in high school. Job troubles also plague her world. In other words, the sweet girl from book one is different as is the entire romance/fairy tale feel. The world of the mer is more explored in this book, and the author does a lovely job of bringing the entire colorful, fantasy to life. The 'real' life aspects are still present but are shoved a little more to the side as magic gains much more importance in the plot. More characters are introduced and others slide into a more important role. Some are left a little unexplored, while others have interesting changes in views. The pacing is a little quicker in this book and detours a bit from the intense romance in book one. The tension is fine, and there are enough twists and turns to keep it interesting--although some of these are on the predictable side. The fantasy side ups higher as Crystal discovers her own powers and is pulled into the underwater world. And the romance isn't as straight forward as before, but rather leans toward an unexpected love triangle. New found magic and added layers of secrets allow a more complex plot in this book than was seen in the first one. While much of it is logical, some remains unexplained. Still, it makes for a light, fun read. Especially younger YAers will enjoy the fantastical story, and even though the character herself has just graduated college, they'll be able to sympathize with her plight. I received a complimentary copy and wanted to leave my thoughts.
