Seventeen-year-old Arion Rush has always played the obedient sidekick to her older sister's flashy femme fatale - until a mysterious boating accident leaves Lilah a silent, traumatized stranger. As her sister awaits medical treatment with their mother, Arion and their father head to his hometown in Maine to prepare a new life for them all. Surrounded by the vast Atlantic, songwriting is Arion's only solace, her solid ground.
Unexpectedly, Arion blossoms in the tiny coastal town. Friends flock to her, and Logan Delaine, a volatile heartthrob, seems downright smitten. But it's Bo Summers - a solitary surfer, as alluring as he is aloof - that Arion can't shake. Meanwhile, Lilah's worsening condition, a string of local fatalities, and Arion's own recent brushes with death seem ominously linked...to Bo's otherworldly family. As Arion's feelings for Bo intensify and his affections turn possessive, she must make a choice. How will Arion learn to listen to her own voice when Bo's siren song won't stop ringing in her ears?

A great story!
I won this book in an Goodreads First Read giveaway.
I actually won the Kindle edition which is great that they are offering that now. I upgraded it to the audio version so I could listen to it at work. My experience is based off the audio version.
I was pleased with the characters and the way the story flowed. I found it to be a little slow in the beginning but it quickly picked up and sent me on quite the adventure. I loved the main character Arion and her strength. My favorite part was in the beginning when her friend was trying to push her to date Logan. She seemed oblivious to her beauty and the bond they had. Overall I was impressed with the story look forward to reading more from this author.
The narrator did a stand out job. Her voice was captivating and engaged me in the story. I will be following this narrator's career because I just loved her voice.
