Before disappearing at sea, Marissa Pruitt’s father—a once revered marine archaeologist—walked the line of insanity, claiming to have seen a mermaid during an ordinary dive in the Gulf of Mexico. He abandoned his life and career, completely obsessed with chasing the truth.

It’s been years since his death, and Marissa is still tormented by countless unanswered questions. When she finds dive coordinates and a stone pendant hidden in her father’s things, she asks for help from his old protégé and sets out to give her father one last goodbye and maybe find closure for her troubled heart. Instead, she finds the truth he’d been searching for all along, with a life and love she never could have imagined. But there’s a price to see it all, one set by betrayal and paid with an anchor at her feet and salt water in her lungs.

My Review

Deep Breath is great novella with a paranormal romance twist. This is not my first read by Author J. M. Miller, but is the first for paranormal romance by her.
The story begins with a discovery, adventure, and the unthinkable. Our main characters, Marissa Pruitt and Dylan Mitchell offer us detailed glimpses of their lives before and after their life transitions. Told in third person, we see, hear, feel, and see each action in the book and are left knowing that this is just a tiny taste of what is to come for this new series.
I enjoyed this short read from J. M. Miller.  Of course, being a novella, it was short, but was packed with action and intensity. The paranormal aspect of the book was unlike others that I have read and was what initially intrigued me about the story line. I don’t want to tell too much about the story, because I feel as though it would give the entire plot away and not allow readers to experience the beginnings of this journey for themselves.  So, let me just say that first impressions in a book can be everything, and I will be back for more.



Marissa inhaled her first breath from the bailout bottle, hard and deep, and held it as she jerked at the chains for escape. Holding a breath while diving was not the best idea. It led to more recovery breaths, wasting more air. But, with a limited capacity bottle, she had to take the risk. She needed more time.

A lock fastened the chain tight around her ankles. She hooked her fingers into the links and yanked, but there was no way to slip the chain off. Still falling deeper, dread and panic twisted her insides and knocked her heartbeat loudly inside her ears. Fear overrode every bit of calm, crushing it like a tin can.

Another breath.

The anchor hit bottom. Her bare feet followed a moment later, colliding with its metal and the sand below, kicking up a cloud of sediment. She didn’t bother to look around. Her focus was only on the chain, but that didn’t keep her brain from wondering what was around her. The light from the surface was weak, dispersing through the water with only a faint glow. It was some reassurance that there were fewer predators around to smell the blood from the cut on her head. That light and reassurance would be gone soon enough, though. She wouldn’t last to see it go completely dark. She’d either be topside or dead.




Her heartbeat pounded on, a clock counting down to her fate. It screamed for her the words she couldn’t speak. It screamed for the air she couldn’t freely take.
