I really loved the interaction between the 2 lead characters. Not over done but still kept interesting enough to keep m reading.
Very well done Ms Miller! I am extremely likely to purchase more of your books based on this one.
Mercy by Lindsay Marie Miller is an on-the-run adventure romance with a hitman and his captive. I liked the bare bones idea, but it felt a bit overdone and illogical actions kept me from believing their story.
Anna is an ex-president’s daughter, and she’s lived a sheltered life because of it. Her first night out with a friend, however, leaves her at the hands of a group of assassins. But the man sent to kill her can’t quite pull the trigger.
I tend to read darker stories, so I was intrigued by the captive plotline. It starts off very quickly with Anna in a whole heap of trouble. There are numerous unexpected twists and turns and plenty of angst.
Everything just felt a bit too rushed and choppy for me. Actions and words weren’t matching up, and it jumps to a connection that I didn’t feel had a chance to develop. It felt forced and awkward.
My biggest obstacle to enjoying this story, however, is Julian. I just kept thinking shouldn’t Julian have known not to do this? And on the other side of the coin, shouldn’t he have expected this to happen? And when he makes a mistake or has a massive oversight, he’s calling Anna a brat and saying how she needs to trust him. The constant overreactions on his side didn’t seem to fit.
Overall, I think a reader looking for an angst-ridden plot (a bit of a soap opera feel) will enjoy this one more than I did.
This had just the right mix of angst and mystery, with enough stream to have me flush on more than one occasion.
The story revolves around Anna James, daughter of the former President and Julian, the mysterious man that she has no idea has been sent to kill her.
Anna knows that her father’s position continues to level unprecedented pressures on her life but she has no idea just how precarious her situation truly is and given the fact that she is a determined soul and likes to try and live her life in as normal a way as possible, it was only a matter of time before the tenuous thread or normalcy snapped.
There is absolutely nothing run of the mill about her life when on a night out with friends she is abducted from a nightclub, the price on her head is suddenly all the more apparent and being kidnapped, is a sobering thought for this 19-year-old.
As you can probably imagine, the immediate peril she is in is terrifying but when a guy that she had a brief dance with at the club steps in to save her, the danger hasn’t dissipated in the slightest, it’s just changed shape and she is left facing all sorts of madness.
Because little does she know that truth behind Julian and his connection with her situation.
Now I was a little ambivalent towards Julien, I couldn’t make up my mind whether I liked him or not and to be quite honest I didn’t know whether I was that fussed either way because the thing that really caught my attention was the dynamic between the two of them rather than them, themselves.
The story was really pointed on the fact that Julian has made a choice and that his choice has consequences for not just her but him too because whilst he may not have been willing and able to put paid to Anna, there were others out there that are more than willing to finish the job…so keeping them both safe was his number one priority.
As you can imagine the story twisted and turned toward the inevitable, not that I minded. The author laid out a complicated plot concerning Anna and her family, especially her father and told quite a pointed tale that had me searching for more in both of them. I wanted to take more from Julian and in many way’s, I did but I was constantly looking for the other shoe to drop, the author seemed determined to almost pour him, heart and soul (no matter how blackened at times) across the page.
I accepted that the feelings they both had were understandable, I just wasn’t sure that it was enough to survive!
But was it???
