Title: Beg for Mercy (Cambion #1)
Author: Shannon Dermott
Genre: YA, Paranormal Romance
Everyone dreams of that first kiss. Of that magic moment when your lips finally meet those of that special person you’ve waited your whole life for. A little awkward, a little scary, a little hot and every bit amazing. We speculate that the whole world will shake and time will just stop. No one, however, ever imagines that kiss to bring Death himself knocking.
Sixteen year old Mercy Moore’s life just got more complicated. The kiss that originally could have meant she would finally have a boyfriend now was the kiss that could have very nearly ended his life. A small detail her mother conveniently never told her will take her life for an abrupt u-turn. Dating, no love, was now completely and utterly impossible. And the boy well, that boy would never be the same.
But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a senior party with the elite students of her school and her best friend. And of all things, playing a stupid game that could very well mean the death of someone in that small room. If it were not for her best friend, the hottest guys in school, and a small need to fit in, she may have been able to escape the disaster that was to come. Her worst nightmare, her personal curse, her very life, only gets dangerously worse.
This is my first book about succubus. And I think I love it. There aren’t many out there, are there? Dunno.
Beg for Mercy is a about secrets, mystery, and love.
After nearly killing the boy on her first kiss, Mercy finds herself in a party playing “spin the bottle.” Not a wise decision you’d say, and you’d be right. But to Mercy’s account she doesn’t know much about what she really is, thanks to her mom being so secretive.
But what complicates things even more is having four boys in love with her. Luke, Flynn, Sebastian, and Paul. Choosing only one has never been more difficult. For both Mercy and me.
Damn. I think I’ll reserve my team for later. Don’t want to influence anyone… 😉
With the obvious distraction of four um… yum great boys, Mercy doesn’t realize that she has more important things to worry about. Like who is following her from town to town leaving missing women along the way.
Beg for Mercy is a rollercoaster of emotion. There are plenty of new characters introduced, and while that might seem a little confusing, here it was nothing if not necessary, and I didn’t mind at all. *cough*
I enjoyed this book quite a lot. If you’re not into love triangle, this might not be for you. While I don’t have a problem with them, love triangles sometimes get the best of me. And this is where I might complain a little. Because I was left a little heartbroken at the end. More reason to read the next book, I guess right? It’s recommended!
