He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it doesn’t keep him from coming out.
My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn’t know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target.
My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I’m the only monster who can save her.
I have sat here and stared at my laptop screen trying to figure out how I want to word my review of Mercy. One hand I really liked it but on the other I didn’t. I liked the premise of the book; it was intriguing and had me wanting to find out what was going to happen next. However there were times that I got bored and wanted things to speed along.
Nix and Becca worked well together but for a majority of the book Becca would in a way annoy me. Maybe it was the flow of the writing, maybe it was that there were too many things all at once but I just didn’t feel that intense feeling of oh I love her. Nix was a combination of sexy, dangerous, sweet and gritty. He drew me in almost immediately with the allure of danger because of his full body skeleton tattoo.
Mercy at the end of the day was a good read; I just wish for me it had been great. I think it will really work for some and not for others but as always make your own mind up.

Debra Anastasia likes to write from her heart, her soul or her butt. The genres she dabbles in are examples of that. There are two paranormal romances in the Seraphim Series and now four contemporary romances in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series and a stand alone in the same genre, Mercy. Fire Down Below and Fire in the Hole, Booty Camp Dating Service and Beast complete her comedy repertoire. The Revenger, a dark paranormal romance, is finally in the light, and the last, a novella called Late Night with Andres, is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.
Debra lives in Maryland with her two kids, husband of twenty years and two dogs. The king of the house is clearly the tuxedo cat that is the size of a small donkey. Find about her latest adventures on DebraAnastasia.com
