Desperate to pay for college, Bridger Whitt is willing to overlook the peculiarities of his new job—entering via the roof, the weird stacks of old books and even older scrolls, the seemingly incorporeal voices he hears from time to time—but it’s pretty hard to ignore being pulled under Lake Michigan by… mermaids? Worse yet, this happens in front of his new crush, Leo, the dreamy football star who just moved to town.


When he discovers his eccentric employer Pavel Chudinov is an intermediary between the human world and its myths, Bridger is plunged into a world of pixies, werewolves, and Sasquatch. The realm of myths and magic is growing increasingly unstable, and it is up to Bridger to ascertain the cause of the chaos, eliminate the problem, and help his boss keep the real world from finding the world of myths.



Book Cover

  • Well-done


  • Read all at once (riveted)


  • The book started off well - the blue door scene was hilarious and terrible at the same time
  • Bridger was an interesting name I hadn't seen before
  • Leo came out at school and no big deal was made about it...
  • How Leo and Bridger started dating was really cute
  • I'm glad Bridger didn't have to go through everything alone and in secret, in the end

Character Depth

  • Chest deep

Mood Upon Completion

  • Happy
  • Hoping for a sequel


  • No typos

Sex Scenes

  • Scene-free


  • The fact that Bridger didn't yet know himself, but still dated Leo; perhaps he should have just left him alone for a bit until he figured things out, rather than taking Leo along for a ride
  • I wish this book was longer
  • …but is that realistic? I'm not sure

Emotional Depth

  • Moderately emotional*

Content Warnings

  • None

*almost the full gamut, but not quite

“What exactly do you do here?”
Pavel eyed him. “I help others with their problems.”
“Like a therapist?”
“No, not those type of problems.”
Bridger’s eyebrows shot up. “Like a hit man?”
Pavel blinked, then grinned, slow and menacing.
Mindy huffed. “No. Don’t tease him, sir. We want this one to last.”
