What's love got to do with it? If you're Cupid, everything. If you're me, not a thing in the sea. I don't believe in love.
Poseidon is smoking some bad seaweed if he expects me to take the one job I'm obviously not qualified for. Rumor has it, Cupid is a chubby baby with a bad attitude. That's all I need. A pissed off porcine toddler with love arrows gunning for my tail because I took his job.
On top of that, the idiot I'm kind of seeing who shall remain nameless—mostly because I don't know his name… don't judge—left red and silver magic all over my skin and hair last time we… umm…went on a date. And guess what? It doesn't wash off.
Poseidon saw me sparkling away and now I'm freakin' Cupid. Getting to the bottom of this abyss means finding what's his name and thrashing his fine, smexy behind with my fin.
Why does this send shivers of delight all the way to the tip of my tail you might ask? I have no clue and no time to figure it out. Don't judge.
I'm about to give love a bad name.
Love is a fool's game. Or at least I thought so for the past millennium…
Getting fired by a slightly inebriated God of the Sea isn't so bad as long as you can find your way past the slurring of his words. Finding out Poseidon's replacing me with the Mermaid I've been seeing for the past fifty years is an arrow straight to the heart. And not the good kind.
No big deal, right? I'll just go to her and explain the job is mine. End of story.
Of course, it could get a bit awkward since we never actually exchanged names.
I'm Cupid and will always be Cupid. Sure, I may have slacked off a little and caused a tear in the abyss that may have possibly let some Demons through to this plane. I mean, who doesn't let that happen every now and again? But the word around Mt. Olympus is that said Demons are coming for Cupid. And if she's Cupid and I'm not, then they're coming for my Mermaid. Unacceptable.
It might be a battlefield—but in the name of love, I'll fight for this crazy little thing.

Loved all the books in this series. What fun they were. Hopefully there will be more to come.
This is the hardest review I have ever had to write. This book is so full of action and interesting stuff, that it will be hard to review it without giving away the whole story, but here goes. Misty’s Mayhem is the best one in the series so far. Actually, they just keep getting better and better! Misty is hysterical and I find myself swinging between wanting to slap Archer or jumping his bones. Poseidon is his usual drunken, what the heck were you thinking self. There is also a few new characters and some old ones that we get to know a little bit better. I was riveted through the entire thing and read it in one sitting. I laughed a lot, out loud in some places, and cried at the end. This is a must read in the series and if you haven’t read the others yet, you really need to.
Book three of the Sea Shenanigans series brings us Misty’s story. She’s helping prepare for Tallulah’s wedding, even though she has no interest in the big L-O-V-E word. She’ll suffer through it for her sister. When a particular “frolic partner” leaves her with red and silver glittery magic, Poseidon (the great drunken jerk) forces her to take up the bow and arrows of Cupid, to spread love to the humans. What a joke – she has no idea what love has to do with anything, and truly ain’t talking ‘bout love. Archer has been boinking a certain Mermaid for fifty years, but they have never exchanged names. He also believes that love stinks, and love is a battlefield. He has no interest in feeling the love tonight, or any other night. He just wants to continue with his Mermaid. He’s slacked off in his Cupid duties, and Poseidon has noticed. Fired? Him? No way. He’ll fix this and prove love is not all you need, and nothing happens after the love is gone. But Demons threaten his beautiful Mermaid while she holds the Cupid title, and he definitely won’t stand for her getting hurt. It’s not love… really it’s not… oh dammit. Our cast of characters returns, this time the arses thankfully not showing off their nard-licking yoga moves to the human guests. Will they be able to prove that all you need is love, or will they be all out of love? Hopefully the power of love will prevail! Another laugh-riot from Robyn Peterman! The series is excellent for fun and laughter-filled reading. Can’t wait for Madison’s story!
So I have a question for you: If you’ve read the first two books and you are reading reviews before buying #3, why? You know what you will get because this is “just another” of this series. Does that mean you do not need to read it? Absolutely not! Did you notice the 5 stars? This is another great one. Having said that, on with the book review! Who knew mermaids were so fierce or so horny? Well, unless you’ve read the first two books. And who know Cupid was so… wait, I’ll stop there because I do not write spoilers. Here’s what you get: A great, fun book by a gifted writer. I finally figured out why I like Robyn Peterman – she has all of these conversations going on in her head! She must have a large committee up there! She can spin a great yarn out of almost anything and Misty’s Mayhem is no exception. And a bonus: Even though it will be helpful to read the first two books before you read this one, it isn’t necessary. This one can stand on its own but then who wants to deliberately deprive themselves of fun? Buy them all and read them all!
Overall rating: 5 Easily one of the funniest books ever, this author flair with snark and smexy never fails! Not only do the characters stay with you, wanting more about them is inevitable. Welcome to a reading addiction folks! Very much meant for adult readers with an off center sense of humor! Still have a hard time wrapping my head around this new found passion I now have about mermaids! What’s next...unicorns? I am about to give this book a second read thru because yes, it is THAT good! All my reviews are always voluntarily written.
