I am so pleased to read Poseidon's story and was enthralled from the very start. Learning about the history between himself and Ammie was heartbreaking to say the least, seeing how Medusa reacted just tore me apart. Poseidon was a first class jerk but he has spent seven thousand years regretting his actions and learning how to hide his feelings behind a mask.
Bringing the story to the 'now', we have Griffin who is dying of a brain tumour and is entwined with Poseidon and Ammie. I completely understood Poseidon's reasoning for what he did and was so glad when Ammie did too.
This is incredibly well-written with no grammatical errors that I noticed. The character development is there for all of them, even those from previous books, whilst the storyline continues to grow and become more involved.
This is such a fantastic series that I really can't recommend it highly enough!!
I received this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in return for a fair and honest review.
Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
He comes into his own in this story, and as we get to know the real reason for his past behaviour...well, I shed a few tears along the way
In fact, Nicola made me gasp quite a few times. I might even have shouted, NO, at one point. I tell you, I never clicked my Kindle so fast in my entire life.
I've said it before, this is a must read series, and I'm looking forward to the next one.

Deep Water is not an MM, this is an MMF story involving Poseidon, Amphitrite and their long lost agapetos. The prophecy was clear, they the god and his wife were to have a third but finding that third would mean the beginning of the end of happiness. The series opens with Poseidon and Amphi separated for about seven thousand years. The loss of their agapetos seven millennia past drove a wound between the mates they never once thought could ever be healed. When the Fates inform Poseidon they used an old but never forgotten thread, the news spark the renewal of hope. Unfortunately, there is a weakness: the old soul is human.
The story is told from three main points of views as well as the POVs of some of the more important side characters. Where once the agapetos was female, now it is male so the confusion is mainly on the characters themselves.
Thetis is still around, unfortunately, and is getting meaner and more cunning. Her interference on the lives of Poseidon's territory is causing havoc on the environment and it is frustrating to read the gods and goddesses battle it out then deal with fighting on another day. Poseidon trying to right a wrong done eons ago is also wearing on him especially when his plans get waylaid by miscommunication and hardheadedness. The author managed to integrate the mythology into a contemporary setting and make it work. It was a fun read. In the end, there is an HEA and rightly so, the getting to that point was an interesting read of erotica and action with a dash of the mytho/sci-fi.
The only thing I should warn hardcore MM readers out there, this is an MMF and so involves scenes with between the the men and the men with Amphi. Yes, readers, there are quite a few MF scenes here as well as a lone FF. I must point out, it was a necessary read and it answered a whole lot of questions left open in the previous books.
I really enjoyed the continuing saga of Olympic Cove. Olympic Cove is a town somewhere on the coast of Florida where some Greek Gods, Demi-Gods, Goddesses and other mythical beings have set up house. It all began in book one, continued into book two and now into book three. The underlying reason for this buildup of Gods on the coast is the threat from a mutuated Nereid, Thetis, the elder sister of Amphitrite, the wife of Poseidon. Thetis happened to be in the Gulf of Mexico during BP’s disastrous oil spill and she was mutated by the chemicals and turned into something awful and evil. The mythical beings have been battling her and her creations since then.
In book three we are introduced to Griffin. Griffin has a very deadly form of brain cancer, from which he is expected to die within weeks. Since I’m personally still undergoing treatment for my own brain cancer, it is kind of a trigger issue for me. If I had known it was in the book, I might have skipped it. I’m glad I didn’t though, because I really enjoyed the story.
Griffin has come to Florida for one last two week holiday, to soak up some sun, do some sailing and enjoy what time he has left. He didn’t count on meeting the big bloke whose sons live next door though, and even less expected that he, a confirmed heterosexual, would be instantly sexually attracted to the man. What he doesn’t know is that the man is actually Poseidon, God of the Sea.
When Poseidon meets Griffin, he recognizes him as the reincarnation of his agapetos, or beloved. Millennia ago, Poseidon and his wife Amphitrite discovered they had a third in their fated relationship, but things went horribly wrong and the third ended up exiled and killed. Now the third is back…reincarnated as Griffin and things are about to get good!! What can Poseidon do? Amphitrite hasn’t spoken to him since that event millennia ago. And what about Griffin’s extremely short life span?
As I mentioned at the top, I really enjoyed the continuing story in this series. The books should not be read as standalones. You will want to read them all so that you understand the world building, and back story. Ms. Cameron does a great job with character development and story building. She has managed to take the Greek Gods, move them to the coast of Florida, and make it sound plausible! One word of warning to the squeamish. There are girlie bits in this one. There is some f/f action, some m/m/f action, and a lot of m/m action. I don’t usually do girlie bits, but in the context of this book it was fine.
I highly recommend this book, and the entire series. If you are into a contemporary fantasy with a Greek God flair, these books would be for you.
A quick rundown here. I don't want to give too much away because there is so much going on, and it's all worth reading. I want you to be able to enjoy this book as much as I did without interference. Poseidon is lonely. Several thousand years ago, he did a terrible thing, causing his wife Amphitrite to leave him. She swore to never forgive him. He spends a lot of time in Olympic Cove visiting with his sons and their friends. He even sees Amphitrite a time or two. It's uncomfortable to say the least.
One day, a new Olympic Cove resident arrives. Poseidon feels a pull toward him, although he can't quite figure out why. Turns out the man, Griffin, is very ill with cancer and has come to Florida to have a last vacation before he enters hospice to die. He and Poseidon get along famously (although he has no idea who he really is). They spend time together, and begin to experience surprising feelings toward each other.
That's pretty much all I'm going to give you, other than, thanks to the Oracle, Poseidon learns that he and Amphitrite are not only fated mates, but there is a third, and it's someone VERY unexpected...ok, it's Griffin, but it's in a very unique way. I should also mention, whether it's Griffin and Poseidon, Griffin and Amphitrite, or the three of them together, their love scenes are equal parts hot and sweet, and they were a joy to read.
"Deep Water" is a great mixture of modern technology, Greek mythology, fully fleshed characters that I genuinely cared about, and an absorbing plot. There are character crossovers from the first two books ("Storm Season" and "Breaker Zone"), and they're absolutely necessary here. There is enough exposition to be able to read this book as a stand alone, but I HIGHLY recommend that you start at the beginning. Not only because you will understand everything better, but because they're just awesome books on their own.
There is a lot of action in "Deep Water". There is some mystery, and an evil so horrible, I was actually a bit frightened. Also, the ending is left open (No cliffhanger, though) for a future "Olympic Cove" installment. I'll be looking VERY forward to that.
Pick this one up. Pick all three of them up. You'll find yourself immersed in a very unique and fascinating love story. Trust me.
You've got your snarky Olympic Gods, pissed-off jilted lovers, twisted vengeful sea nymphs, hilariously bitchy in-laws, rollicking wild adventure and some seriously HOT sex! what else could you ask for?
Once again, Nicola Cameron beautifully melds genres with Deep Water, making it a big, juicy read for fans of m/m romance, erotica, fantasy, adventure, and the paranormal. If you're a fan of even one of these (hell - even if you're not!), do yourself a favour and dive into this series. You will NOT be sorry.
