Hello, reader and writer friends!
Sorry I’ve been MIA, but I had an intense move across cities and then have struggled to find my groove. I basically stopped writing, exercising, and eating right for a few months, but I think I’m finding a schedule that works for me. My life has changed a lot, so it’s been hard to pin down a time to write book reviews.
Mercy is the fourth novel in the Salacious Players Club series. I thought it would be the final book, but a few more spin-off novels might develop. The next novel involves a love triangle, a trope I do not like, so I’ll probably skip it.
I love poly romance, but not love triangles.
Moving on from that, the novel is available on Kindle Unlimited, which is how I read it, and I’ll just go ahead and get into the review. I have no spoilers, so you can enjoy it if you read it!
Synopsis: Maggie’s tired of the life she’s currently living, and Emerson Grant holds the keys to her escape. She needs a change of scenery. Something to bring that spark back to her life. She doesn’t expect to form an interest in her boss’s young son, Beau Emerson. He needs guidance and an unwavering hand to keep him on the right path. It shouldn’t be her, but it feels too good to be the one to give it to him.
Beau is a brat, but he’s eager to please. He craves validation and attention. He wants to be good, but he doesn’t know how. He never cared to until he met her. Now, he wants to be hers. He wants her to show him how to be a good boy who deserves the love he’s always desired.
What I Didn’t Like: Honestly, there wasn’t much I didn’t like from this novel. I think the only thing that bothered me was Maggie’s internal conflict because it could have been stronger, but I also enjoyed how the story developed.
What I liked: The sex scenes were obviously great. I also really liked the uniqueness of their bond. Beau was a legitimate brat and a bad person at the beginning. He confessed to some hurtful things he’d done in the past, and I felt it was refreshing to see a hero admit to such things. The story was rather dramatic, but it worked out well.
Overall: I enjoyed the book and would recommend it. Give Me More is still my favorite in the series, but I also love MMF stories. I would give this book 4/5 stars with a 5/5 spice-level rating!
Thanks for reading! I wanted to complete this series, but I will have a new format coming for new book reviews. You can obviously see the featured image as a sneak preview into that change. I’d like to implement my Instagram feed with these reviews, so look out for that.
