Mercy by HelenKay Dimon

mercyTitle: Mercy

Series: N/A

Author:HelenKay Dimon

Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Blurb: After she infiltrated his business and betrayed his trust, a disavowed CIA agent must seek sanctuary in the bedroom of a man who will either help her, kill her, or bring her to her knees…

Becca Ford is on her own. Eight months after she headed up a sting operation to take down millionaire club owner Jarrett Holt, the other agents in her special ops team have been eliminated under odd circumstances, and she needs a place to hide.

Jarrett is a man who prefers darkness to light. He deals in the only truly valuable currency—information—and his supper club caters to an exclusive clientele. It was an uncharacteristic moment of weakness when he let a woman into his life. But it’s not luck that the criminal charges disappeared . . . as did the evidence.

When Becca returns to the club seeking his help, Jarrett doesn’t want to hear her story. But he does want her body, and demands that she give it to him. He’ll keep her safe—for now—but it’ll be in his bed and on his terms, until he says they’re done.

Thoughts: I like that the story is told from multiple POVs. You know what is going on in everybody’s head and the various trust issues taking place. This isn’t a group of people that openly discuss their feelings, so you would be lost without it. Becca and Jarrett spend most of their time together either having sex or arguing. Not only do you get the story about Jarrett and Becca, but there is also a secondary M/M relationship. I have to admit that both of the sexual relationships in the story were hot. You also get introduced to a lot of people in this book. Some of these characters have their own romance, but others just have some undercurrents of chemistry. I can only hope that we weren’t introduced to some of these secondary characters for no reason. There is a lot of suspense in this book, but not much action. You get invested in the characters and that is what keeps it interesting.

Grade: B
