Moondance Beach Bayberry Island #3 Download Û 6 Susan Donovan à 6 Download review Moondance Beach Bayberry Island #3 Atue allegedly grants true love to the pure at heart So when the injured Navy SEAL gets sent home just in time to help his family prepare for the annual Mermaid Festival he’s not in the mood to celebrate Nor fall in love But during a night run on the beach a magnificently naked woman emerges from the surf who bears an uncanny resemblance. I added this years ago when I had different tastes so when I read the summary again this many years later I was turned off by the mention of a magical mermaid statue It sounds so cheesy and childish and like a Hallmark movie with a dumb magical object that finds love I was also really worried at the mention that Adelena had always loved him because that s usually a recipe for a virgin with no experience whatsoever with men and a hero who s the exact opposite I saw that my library had it and so I thought I d go ahead and read it It started with a pre birthday party for Frasier Duncan s dad He was out with Duncan s brother Clayton and Ash and Nat his brothers in law Of course the cast has married coupled deliriously happy who have presumably had their own books before this Frasier said Duncan didn t want to come home because he didn t want anything to hold him here Frasier asked the group what makes a man put down roots and of course they had to answer love Ugh I felt like puking Especially when I read that Evelyn came to town to claim Clancy and Frasier needed to thank her tomorrow Nat had flew in to produce a show 3 years ago but he met Annie uit his job and married her Ash came to develop the island with bulldozers and everything but he met Rowan and he stopped the destruction of the island and married herYuck He s a retired Navy SEAL lieutenant who had an accident when his team was part of an explosion that killed his men and injured his leg leaving him with a limp and a need for daily physical therapy He would lift the leg 100 times in a day Duncan was staying at a BB and an osprey feather showed up what he believed to be a gift from his mom He d always received gifts from nature ever since he was 10 and confined to his bed sick and couldn t go outside Except his mom denied giving it to him and said she d once thought it was his dad but they both knew he wasn t the type His mom said he wasn t willing to hear the truth but Duncan didn t pursue it So I knew it was going to be dragged out even though it was so obvious Embarrassingly Adelena used to follow him around the island when he was in high school She would sometimes keep him company when he was sick and they d play checkers He d receive hundreds of offerings She really sent him hundreds of anonymous gifts from nature his entire That spathetic When Duncan asked Who could be leaving me all this crap then and now I was embarrassed for her Seriously he thinks it s crapIt was funny when his sister Rowan told him he was a natural with her baby and that she hopes he has one of his own because he d make a really good dad I loved his reaction his mood went foul and he said For God s sake Row I don t like cheating and sordid details in a book absolutely won t tolerate it with main characters but I don t like it with side characters either It s upsetting and unfair to ask someone to forgive that Frasier had dated their mom and Sally the big boobed bimbo at the same time and since his separation he s been seeing her He brought her to his birthday party he didn t know their mom would be there but still I can t stand matchmakers they annoy the crap out of me So when his mom was at the Mayberry Island Mermaid Society meeting talking about true love between Duncan and Lena I was so irritated She had been the one putting Lena s provocative mermaid paintings up and when he took one down she brought another with naked skin Mona said they re not in the right place Duncan wants to be back on active duty and Lena s consumed with art He s blind and Lena won t make the first move One of the women said they re heart mates who uses that expression and I just wanted the scene to endDuncan went running one night and trespassed on Lena s private property unbeknownst to him jumping her fence despite the posted signs As he lay there he saw a tail and then a naked woman emerge and walk past him And he recognized the legs from seeing Lena s legs at the party as he left That s all he saw Yeah right You remember someone by their legs The next day he told Clancy about it and asked what Lena was like and that upset me After walking in on Clancy kissing his wife on his desk with her legs wrapped around him Thank you authors for those awkward unnecessary moments with family You don t talk about the woman s nudity with your brother Be classy and respectful and keep it to yourself I didn t like how he asked why he would want to start dating a woman there especially one who paid a mermaids That was disrespectful of her work The station had taken in a stray dog which was all over Duncan and that seemed forced When kids and animals come into a book that s the large indication to me that the author had no idea what to do and it was a last ditch effort And I so didn t like that Clancy looked up Lena and showed him pictures of her He hadn t seen her since high school so he should have seen her in the flesh for the first time not been shown online what she looks like What a terrible decision to make I was absolutely pissed when Sanders her manager saw a drawing of Lena s face and said Lena hadn t mentioned the artist in a while and asked if he was doing okay He said all of her relationships had imploded because she always told them she couldn t love them because she d loved the same man since childhood That was absolutely the dumbest thing I ve ever heard You re attached to someone you haven t seen since high school and you re 31 Why even get into a relationship in the first place if you don t want to be with anyone else That s stupid She said he had to make the first move and it had to be his choice 100% It did remind me of myself waiting for the other person to make the move while you sit there for years doing nothing but waiting for something to happen but didn t tame my disgust and aggravation But I was happy that she d had lovers and the author even used the word wonderful I almost lost it in shock A heroine who enjoyed sex with other men perish the thoughtI didn t like the decisions she made In Rowen s perspective and I couldn t stand all the alternating points of view Lena came sneaking in at night Rowen knew that something was going on with Lena and Duncan because they both sneak in at night Lena was talking about how she s been leaving the gifts and Rowen and both their moms have always known Duncan came in and that s how he learned Lena was the one giving him the gifts And then he kissed her and put her on the kitchen table and that was moving way too fast I didn t like how any of it played out She stopped it which was good because it was way too soon but her behavior bothered me She acted like a fanciful little girl and not a grown woman She stopped him and said This is not the way She told Sanders who couldn t see any problem with Duncan s behavior that it was scary and unexpected She felt out of control and it s not how she pictured it happening She thought it would be the two of he slowly getting to know each other again Having deep conversations and opening up to each otherand maybe then we could segue into a really good kiss or two Ugh She sounded like a child It was funny when he was helping her out with fans at her tent and a guy raised his shirt to show her his tattoo of her work and Duncan grabbed him and told him to keep his pants on It sucked that he thought she d stalked him coming into his territory When he helped her bring all her stuff back to her house he asked how she d done it She said she knows where every sueaky floorboard is and how to turn the door handle just soYeah she was sounding like a stalker In the studio before they left Duncan spied the drawing of her that he d done when he was 14 He couldn t believe she had it Why was she so attached to a silly memory Why was she so attached to him What had she continued to leave him little giftsDuncan s stomach twisted in knots it was too much Her devotion made him deeply uncomfortable it suffocated himOmg I HATE when the heroines have embarrassing moments like this and it s always the heroine It was insane and way too out there that when she kissed Duncan she received a message that she felt was from a wise woman a goddess She told her mentor about it and knowing that her mom came to Bayberry so Lena could meet Duncan She heard a voice say in her mind that it will take time he must come to her and don t give up Who comes up with this The day he drew her when he was 14 and she was 11 their faces were close and he realize she was pretty and he kissed her It was his 7th but it was Lena s first He realized how much younger she was and he really was an ass the way he told her they should forget it ever happened He s older than her and mature and she s like his little sister Them he blew the whole thing off like it didn t matter It made me dislike him And I always find it so tragic that characters who met as children didn t get together then and went off to have sexual relationships with other people They called Frasier Da and their mom Ma I kept waiting to hear they were Irish but it never came It was so unrealistic that Duncan a man would describe that kiss as unearthly that he felt something too Come on Is this romance or paranormal I liked their date at the clambake and that everyone was watching but it was in Rowan s POV I hated the choices she kept making for the POVs I wanted to be in their POVs not have to witness their date from a third party But I did like when they were dancing and he told her he had to take her painting down because the mermaid wouldn t give him any peace The date was cut so short though and so lacking One of their mom s friends let slip that they had a good run and Lena and Duncan would be their last The mermaid society would have to close because their president left and no one wanted to do it they re old and it s outdated They did Annie and Nat Rowan and Ash and Clancy and Evie Rowan wondered if they were taking credit for her marriage but didn t pursue it like the woman were crazy I hate matchmakers Another reason why I didn t want to read was because I was fairly certain there would be no sex Some authors you just know and with this plot line that sounded so childish and a heroine who sounded like a child with a child s wishes it only cemented that opinion Especially when it was pg 238 and they hadn t had sex yet and I feared they never would They started on pg 239 and I was shocked by how far she went taking her dress off on the beach and then undressing him and giving him a hand job and then a blow job I can t stand that happening their first time Just ease into it and take it slow And it was exactly as I feared Despite there being a blow job the details were so lack She didn t really describe their bodies or give details It was vague and she went off on a tangent of flowery descriptions and nonsense thoughts that I absolutely loathe They became part of the sea as they became part of each other And when Duncan cried out and emptied himself inside her he joined with the salty life giving essence of the ocean With Lena he returned to his origins she swore she heard a familiar tune in Duncan s deep whisper asking her to come with him to the sea of love When they finally got down to it it took about a page and it was her waxing poetic about it and it totally sucked I also didn t like that they didn t use a condom because they didn t have one They verified the other was healthy like that s the only issue And I was so pissed that Lena told him she hadn t been with a man in 2 years Of course Any time an author gives the woman a sexual past it was so long ago that the hero can have something to be satisfied with it s always a long drought before the hero I guess purifying themselves of other men or something It s outrageous They went back to her place and showered together then had sex repeatedly throughout the night but she skipped over it AHHH that makes my blood boil It s infuriating to be reading a romance with no sex What s the point Lena had uestioned him about the accident where he lost his teammates and they talked about his survivor s guilt I can t stand when authors have the characters have the exact same situations He felt like he d failed them and Lena could personally testify to letting someone down She took her mentor to the doctors and dropped her off was supposed to wait for her call to come get her except she got to painting and didn t hear the call The elderly woman had walked home and had a stroke walking up the stairs and died And she feels guiltyso she knew exactly what he was talking about So perfectRight after they had sex the next chapter she jolted us back to the past yet again She remembered a time when Duncan didn t speak to her any or look at her He just patted her head and called her a kid He was really unlikable I don t like an asshole hero And for some reason he had like selective memory or something because he couldn t remember anything and forgot how mean he used to be At the family party he remembered that he d kept Clancy and Evie apart as teenagers He hid a letter Evie wrote to him and it took them 18 years to get together And he always got away with not apologizing to anyone Everyone had already forgiven him so he just got off the hookAfter that disastrous birthday party where Frasier brought Sally I didn t think we d see her again But at the party Sally showed up with Frasier again sharing that she had cancer and she was so jealous of Mona she d tried to one up her but she d only been catch and release to Frasier You don t hook up with another woman while you re still married to your wife and bring the woman there to advocate for you to get back together It s disgusting how cheating is handled and he didn t deserve her backThat night Duncan shut down because his family was so accepting of her and he was getting in deep with her when he wasn t going to stay Stupidly Lena put up with it and offered to talk accepting whatever he wanted to give without pushing I was so annoyed at her She deserved better than his moody butt shutting down on her They had sex when he should have been apologizing Weirdly she mentioned the dog going up the stairs with him but had the dog go to another room But right after they had sex she had the dog jump up on the bed and turn its head away like their nakedness was too much Ew Why would you have the dog come in after they just had sex What is up with the dog Lena said holy moly and he said Baby Jesus on the B train whatever that meant That is some stupid talkingDuncan had asked why she kept the painting and afterwards she told him about the vision and that it was destiny and she d loved him ever since Duncan had to get up and go to the bathroom then came out and asked her if she believed in the mermaid She started acting really crazy and no wonder it freaked him out It would anyone She kept asking him uestions in return She asked if he was asking her if she believes there s unseen forces and magic in the world then yes He asked of she believed in the mermaid and she asked does she believe in mermaids in the sea or the mermaid legend Then it ended with her saying wasn t he going to ask if she s the mermaid He went along with it and she said you really want me to answer that That was it for him he d had enough Duncan could see the conversation veering off into whether the moon was an alien hovercraft and the mating habits of Bigfoot He said he couldn t do this and leftNo wonder he d left Bayberry and never looked back This was place created by and for crazy people Looking back he saw that Lena had done a bang up job masking her true feelings in those media interviews No doubt sales would suffer if the world knew she was cuckoo bananas This close to the end and they were having this stupid ridiculous fight Duncan was sitting by the fountain and heard a voice say she is yours and you are hers I couldn t stand his tendency to talk about Lena with other people and their tendency to always ask him about her The day of the mermaid ball he told his mom he d thought Lena was a flake dreamy and artsy and off in her own la la land She believes in mystical forces and signs and destiny the kind of gibberish he heard from his mom At the ball he told Clancy that his wife lives in the real world but Lena is airy fairy and love only goes so far when your girl tells you she believes in mermaids and implied she was one herselfThe ending pissed me off I was so mad Lena left the party and went home where she lit a candle and ended up falling asleep She woke to the room burning her beautifully designed studio and the drawing Duncan had made her 20 years she had that and then they get together and the author felt the sadistic need to ruin it all I will never understand decisions like that And Lena never said anything about it like it didn t matter Cut to one year later and it was the epilogue showing them married and her about to have their daughter Duncan asked of she d be a natural swimmer and she answered of course because her dad s a SEAL Ok whatever Weird mermaid crap that s never explained Is she a mermaid or isn t she They left off with him thinking she was a witch who really thought she was a mermaid How can you not address that After that fight I just wanted to be done with these characters that I didn t particularly like This lost what it had on the beginning The last 30% I just wanted to be done They didn t have enough time together There was hardly any communication between them Lena had her head in the clouds the whole time listening to a prophecy from when she was 11 just surrendering to this great mystery and acting like a child along the way Really you don t tell a man you re a mermaid or he s going to head for the hills And she s been telling men her whole life that she s in love with someone else Except she describes him as a stranger He is not a stranger She knew him from age 11 to what 15 That is not a stranger Duncan was an asshole to everyone his siblings and family and Lena and then he left to join the Navy and stayed gone only coming back occasionally He can t commit is afraid to love and thinks he needs to rejoin as the only way to honor his fallen comrades He forgot his entire past and only bits and pieces came to him He knows he should apologize about things he s done but keeps getting interrupted or forgiven by people who should at least make him say sorry He continued being a jerk until almost the very end And the author had Lena have a silly moment thinking back on her telling Duncan she didn t need him and could take care of herself but she did need him because she burned the place down and he had to save her life Way to showcase the woman as forgetful emotional who can t be without a man or she ll burn her house down The relationship was a fail because Lena was kind of a stalker coming on too strong saving the drawing loving him so long and Duncan was a total closed off jerk judging her and her lifestyle The legend went unexplained and I couldn t believe it The whole book there s this mermaid legend Duncan saw a fintail in the water right before Lena emerged she told him to ask her if she was one and her mom s entire village thought the women in her family were witches I expect some answers or something but I got nothing The whole thing is so flimsy she spent as much time in the past as she did in the present

    [Moondance Beach Bayberry Island #3] EBOOK READ I received this book from the Goodreads First Reads programI enjoyed every minutes of this one The story is romance with a playful innocence added in It helps that I love mermaids and they are prevalent in the story The characters come together in a real and believable way but with undertones of magic that might or might not exist I need to go back and read the first two books in the series now
