Poseidon, God of the Sea, has spent millennia alone due to a single terrible act. His consort Amphitrite has sworn never to forgive him, and he’s forced to live with the knowledge that he drove an innocent girl to her doom.
But when one of the Olympic Cove cottages gets an occupant with an all-too-familiar soul, Poseidon discovers that the Fates have given him a second chance. Now he must try to right the wrongs of the past and win back both his beloved consort and the mate he betrayed.
Assuming, of course, that the Mad Nereid Thetis doesn’t interfere…
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
This is the third book in the Olympic Cove series and, in my opinion, is the very best yet! I have enjoyed each of these books and would recommend that you read them in order, even though you could read them as standalones. There is an overall plot arc which covers the series but if you don't mind not knowing all the ins and outs of that, then you could read it by itself.
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.

"The addition of new characters and old in this addition to the series if wonderful and more than ever the mythology is brought to life once again making you feel like you are right there living it!" ~Book Junky Girls
“I highly recommend this book, and the entire series. I recently reviewed Books 1 & 2, so if you missed that review, check it out (here.) If you are into a contemporary fantasy with a Greek God flair, these books would be for you.” ~ Love Bytes Reviews
“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.” ~Author L.D. Blakely
“What a great book!! I loved it, and I was very excited to read it. The first two stories in the "Olympic Cove" series were great, so I pretty much counted the days until this one was available.” ~Amazon Reviewer
Nicola Cameron has had a healthy interest in sex since puberty, but it wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to write about it. Turns out that the skills picked up during her SF writing career transfer rather nicely to erotic romance and erotica — who knew?
