Book Description

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 would be lethal.

Sixteen year old Mercy Moore's life got more than just 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.

But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Real Paranormal Romance Tale November 4, 2011
By Karla
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't summarize how much this book got to me for starters I have to say that Shannon Dermott knows what she is doing.
How would you feel if you had a life sucking demonic power trapped inside you that most certainly will kill any boy that dares to kiss you but at the same time compels you to reach for that nearness?

I've read a ton of books where the main character is very friendly towards a lot of boys and I always found myself saying, heck I don't want my niece to read this. That did not happened with this book, I felt sorry for Mercy and her struggle most of the book, being a teenager is hard on itself raging hormones an all, but adding to that she's half succubus. That screamed disaster in so many levels, that I fell in love with Mercy.

What happens around Mercy and the way boys around her act is perfectly understandable and a huge part of the story.
Luke is an adorable loving and caring boy that is head over hills for Mercy, I won't say he is perfect far from it, actually all the characters in the book are very believable he has both good and bad quality's to him, like all of us do.
Flynn is my favorite character in the book, he's the classic popular, flirty wham bam thank you mam kind of guy, but deep within him you can see he is actually a good friend, with good feelings despite his nature and a person that cares deeply about others; but can't actually help himself so he just do what needs to be done.

The only character I had a problem with was Mercy's mom, what an infuriating woman she is; she keeps her daughter completely on the dark on so many levels and there's no mother daughter bond what so ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Book This Year October 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my favorite books so far this year - amazing!

The story is about a girl, Mercy, who is learning to live life as a Succubus. This proves to be very challenging since her mother won't teach her a thing. The only thing she knows for sure is that if she kisses someone, they could die - her best friend Luke had a personal experience with this. I have to say that I've only ever read about Succubui & Incubui from the Beautiful Creatures Series but even though them I didn't learn a lot. We, along with Mercy, learn quit a bit about their nature here and I can tell there's even more to learn!

This book is long, very long (I'm guessing about 600 pages) and I read the whole thing in 2 days it was so good! You can preview the first 5 chapters online and when you do you'll probably get sucked in just as I did.

Since Mercy doesn't know a lot about controlling herself yet, it's really fun to watch her try. She literally has an inner demon who seems to control her life at some points, which makes situations bad for her but interesting for us. Particularly when it comes to the men. And there's A LOT of different men in her life.

One thing I really enjoyed about this book was that there wasn't a love triangle or even two people working towards one love. Mercy was exploring her teenage inhibitions and with all the hot men running around it definitely kept me interested. I must admit that I have a soft spot in my heart for Luke, even though I understand they aren't really right for each other.

4.0 out of 5 stars NightlyReading Review August 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a different twist on demons than I am use to reading. Mercy is a succubus demon and she had no idea until her first kiss which left her best friend lying on the floor and begging for his life.

The writer was brilliant with surrounding Mercy with all types of men which REALLY threw her for a loop. Her succubus side was starting to outweigh her human side and trying to take over. I enjoyed reading about Mercy's interactions with all of these boys, but I was rooting for Flynn. He is very much a bad boy and only showed his soft side a few times, but I still think that there could be something more between the two??? Luke was just too much of a goody goody, hence what he really was which I cannot reveal, you will just have to read it for yourself!

The ending was ruthless and agonizing. I was not a happy camper:( The one person that I did not trust through the whole book is who is now holding Mercy's hand, but, with a sequel in our midst, I have a feeling that it may not be for long!!!

The storyline in this book was impressive and I really could not put it down. The writing flowed wonderfully and the storyline was easy to follow. I never got bored! There are quite a few grammatical errors which the author is aware of and fixing as we speak, but it did not deter me from reading and actually loving the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars READ IT!!! You will love it! December 27, 2011
I finished this late last night and it's been a little over 14 hours since I put it down and I am not sure I still know what to write about it but let's give it a go. I'll just start typing and telling you about the story and see where that takes me...

We will start with Mercy; she is a 16 year old high school student who is half a succubus. She discovered this during her first kiss when she almost killed her now best friend Paul. Mercy is a smart girl and one of the fun things in the story is her use of her SAT words. Every day she has one for the day and it is comical how they end up being used. Now I read some reviews and I know there were some issues with corrections that needed to be made, let me just say that Shannon Dermott (the author) gave me the edition of the book and I had no grammar and spelling problems with this edition.

All right now I am going to tackle what I didn't like so we can just get it out of the way and get back to the good stuff because there was plenty of it, it will be like ripping off a Band-Aid.

I do like a good Love tri-angle but this one is more like a hexagon, I don't know at what point it got a wee bit ridiculous for me but I do know it got there. Half-way through and maybe even three-quarters through I began getting antsy and irritated with the Mercy's man fan club. I do realize she is a succubus so yeah ... hello boys! But it still seemed a bit much. I tell you this now not because I think it should be different but because if you read this book I don't want you so get frustrated and give up. I promise the payoff for finishing it will be worth it! In fact I dare to say I think all of that is forgiven.
