World of Aquatica: A single choice to do the right thing sends one ex-soldier’s life spiraling out of control.

Solomon Lynch figured his decision to help his boss’s son escape from under his dominating thumb would cost him his job. Instead, it nearly costs him his life. He’s jumped and beaten in an alley, but Solomon has no delusion about who sent the men. He only lives because his ropes weren’t tied tight enough, and he manages to escape the cinderblock that was meant to send him swimming with the fishes. He doesn’t remember much after that, but rousing in an unfamiliar place is a mixed blessing. Doctor Anthony Keller is hawt! Solomon realizes instantly that the doc returns his attraction, but his instincts tell him that Anthony is hiding something. Besides that, how can he drag the handsome man into his screwed up life, a life that could be cut short any minute by a vindictive rich guy?


I love this series! It has everything I want by this author: insta love, interesting creatures, human discovery of the paranormal world, recurring characters, a continuing thread but a story in and of itself.

In Aquatica we have two main Alphas – I’m not sure what type of creature they are – and I can’t wait to read their stories! – who run the show at an aquarium where shifters perform in their shifted forms! There are some predictable bad guys who end up providing fodder for shifters to find their mates.

Though I wasn’t crazy about the ending – it didn’t really end all that solidly – I liked the interaction of shark with mate and the overall story arc.

3.5 of 5 stars

Thank you for the review. I haven’t read a book by Charlie Richards before and I’m not sure why. Definitely have to give this a read.
