My Thoughts

Maura Ryan goes on a trip to meet with her mentor to see about a new discovery he made. When she gets there he is missing, but in his place are five mysteriously sexy men who give Maura a vacation she’ll never want to come back from.

This novel was definitely steamy and I liked the idea of the Aquans and how they came about as well. Even though the five are supposed to work together as one I felt that Daq had the greatest presence. I loved his character and my only wish is that the book was longer so that I could see more of Daq and the rest of this amazing group. Maura herself was an independent heroine who takes to these guys likes a duck to water, surprising herself in the process.
If you love steamy romances with a few extra partners then this might be the book for you.

Warning: This book contains Ménage and some M/M elements
