Brett Leland serves as the director of an underwater research station located near one of the world's last healthy coral reefs. His life's work is focused on protecting the reef and discovering why it has remained healthy as others are failing. But his university plans to sell the research station, and someone is trying to sabotage his final mission.
Setiwan Maramis is one of the legendary shape shifting guardians of the reef. He's been watching Brett since the scientist first came to the station, and he wants Brett as both an ally and a lover. He is forbidden to reveal himself to humans, but when an enemy puts Brett's life in danger, Setiwan follows his heart rather than the dictates of his people.

Men who can transform into any marine life are a special love of mine. A man who can share my love of the ocean and is sexy hot is even better! Too bad he plays for the other team.
Setiwan is one of the guardians set to protect a section of the world's ocean reef. His interest in the research center underwater is more than just scientific, unless we're talking about chemistry with lead researcher Brett Leland.
Setiwan's lust for the human Brett comes across in some hot and sexy ways only a marine lover could take extra delight in. All I have to say is, the mating patterns of a cuttlefish has always intrigued me. Reading it in a shifter story only makes me wish to be Brett. There is more than lust and smexy tease scenes between the two men. Things are not all right with the research facility. They have an unknown enemy trying to destroy all of Brett's work.
Setiwan and Brett join forces as the first human to guardian alliance to uncover the plot. Unfortunately, the truth hits closer to home. This added plot and conflict helped make this short story more than just a continuous m/m mating sex dance. The underlying message is pro Green agenda and also pokes fun at Green Peace in my mind. Basically, the world is not black and white; the ends does not justify the means. Pro-environment conservation agenda aside, this short story is tightly written and fun. I hope there are more stories in this series as this little taste of the water world has whet my appetites for more. I recommend this to water lovers who enjoy an erotic m/m paranormal romance.
