The romantic in me could not wait to read A Pacific Love by Serag Monier. Arwa prides herself on her discipline and structure as a Human Resource supervisor. It takes a while for her to warm up to Kamel's persistent attentions. Working together causes them to keep the relationship a secret. Arwa thought after they were married they could let others know, but he insisted they keep it confidential. Ziad is an intelligent young dolphin that despises humans and lives for the thrill of dangerous missions. An elder dolphin fills his mind with tales of dolphins who are invited to a magical island. It allows them to turn into a human. This is for the preservation of the dolphins by learning human ways. Ziad is fascinated by this prospect, especially when he meets Arwa. She only wants her heart to heal and find everlasting love. He wants to aid his species and be there for the beautiful woman. Will the magic bring them together or pull them apart?
A Pacific Love is well-laced with magic and hope, which kept me engaged with the idea that dolphins can turn into humans and sacrifice all for love. Serag Monier adds elements of surprise as the story unfolds. As the story progresses, you wonder if Arwa found her everlasting love in Kamel but twists take you down a different path. I found the characters well-developed, though they continue to make unexpected decisions. The connection between Arwa and Ziad is strong, even before she knows who he is. You will finish this love story with an enduring appreciation for the magical love they found and the captivating tale you lived through them.
