The sirens are back, but Vanessa may be the biggest threat of all. . . .
Nothing has been normal since Vanessa Sands learned that her sister was murdered by sirens—femme fatales of the watery depths—and that everything she believed about her family was a lie.

Her boyfriend Simon’s been the only person Vanessa feels she can really trust. But now there are some secrets she can’t tell even him. And when Vanessa finds herself in the sights of Parker, Hawthorne Prep’s resident charmer, she needs someone to confide in more than ever. Doubting her relationship with Simon, unsure of Parker’s intentions—and of her own—and terrified by what she’s learned about herself, Vanessa has never felt so alone.

But personal problems must be put aside, because the Winter Harbor sirens are back for revenge. Now, Vanessa must face her past and accept that she is just like her enemies—every bit as alluring, every bit as dangerous.
The eagerly anticipated second novel of the Siren trilogy, Undercurrentis a seductive paranormal romance that will leave you breathless. 

I just finished Undercurrent last night and wanted to try and do a write up before I forget.  Undercurrent is book #2 in the Sirens series by Tricia Rayburn.  I remember reading Sirens and enjoying it so unfortunately, Undercurrent has been in my TBR pile for a few months.  The trouble with series is that often, you forget what the first books were about.  You forget the characters names, what they were doing and significant events that occurred.  That is what happened to me in Undercurrent.  

As I was reading, I was desperately trying to remember what had happened in Book 1.  I would have liked more background reminders throughout to help job my memory.  I found the first 2/3 of the book a bit slower paced than I like.  I had to re-read a few different scenarios because they were hard to understand and I had questions about what other characters in the scene were doing as events happened.  However, I did stick it out and I'm glad I did.  The book really picked up in the last 1/3 as things started to shake up.  I enjoyed the novel overall and I have to say that I'm surprised that more bloggers haven't read Tricia Rayburn.  I'm not sure where I had originally heard of Siren (book 1) but its a nice break from the regular vampire/werewolf series if you're looking for something different but still paranormal in nature.

BTW, still LOVE the cover of the first book and am meh about the can read my first review here.
