We’re kicking of the blog tour for Amalie Howard’s mermaid YA novel, Waterfell! Today Amalie shares some of her favorite romantic quotes from the book — and keep reading for a giveaway of the book!
Here are a few of my favorite romantic WATERFELL quotes!
I make myself look up, keeping my expression nonchalant. But Lo makes no such effort. He’s staring at me with a look of blatant appreciation on his face, and this time I can’t stop the blush that rises like an answering tide through me, nor the feeling of complete dissolution taking hold of my body. I know one thing’s for certain—it’s not the butterflies I need to be worried about.
“Hey,” Lo says.
“What are you doing here?”
“You’re here. So I’m here, too.” His words could incinerate ice, far less a girl with a definite non-icy heart. I’m hanging on by a thread not to be a puddle on the floor.
“Oh.” It’s the only word I can translate from my brain to my mouth. Everything else is gibberish. “But you don’t work today.”
“No, but you do.” And … puddle.
At the last minute before his lips touch mine, his eyes flutter close. The kiss is a shock of images and smells and feelings, hitting me all at once—my home, my friends, the ocean, the land, beauty, chaos, life and this strange, infuriating, lovely boy. Everything about him flashes into me, and then there’s nothing else but Lo.

About the Book:
Nerissa Marin hides among teens in her human form, waiting for the day she can claim her birthright—the undersea kingdom stolen from her the day her father was murdered. Blending in is her best weapon—until her father’s betrayer confronts Nerissa and challenges her to a battle to the death on Nerissa’s upcoming birthday—the day she comes of age.
Amid danger and the heartbreak of her missing mother, falling for a human boy is the last thing Nerissa should do. But Lo Seavon breaches her defenses and somehow becomes the only person she can count on to help her desperate search for her mother, a prisoner of Nerissa’s mortal enemy. Is Lo the linchpin that might win Nerissa back her crown? Or will this mortal boy become the weakness that destroys her?
