Customers who bought this item also bought
As director of a Boston art gallery, Mercy Rothell has made some hot deals in her time, but none like this. In order to sign the impossibly sexy, brilliant, and successful artist Shamus Montgomery to do a show of his celebrated erotic sculptures, Mercy must meet his curious but absolutely non-negotiable demand - she must pose for him in the nude, day after day, or he walks. Never one to back down from a challenge, Mercy agrees. Burning under the intense gaze of the hottest man she's ever known, watching his hands work their magic, Mercy feels vulnerable yet liberated and fully aroused, desperate for the kind of satisfaction only a master like Shamus can give. In fact, she would beg him to cross the line. And once he does, mercy is the last thing she desires...

I could really sympathize with Mercy. The emotional breakdown she fought to keep in control from her rapist "Jeff King."
I too, had been in that kind of situation. I also understood why she didn't file charges on him in the beginning. That Shamus Montgomery was every bit of the singing artist Sade's hit song,
"Smooth operator." I visualized him, as a tall, dark-skinned brotha, with a discreet intellect and an uncompromising charm. In other words, he could charm the panties off of any strong-willed woman. I liked Jane, she made me chuckle with the amusing way she'd deliver her information to Mercy. Lisa Millhouse was as real as characters can get. The way she deals with her own demons of the past, makes her seem a danger to society.
The entire book will have you glued to it, from the beginning to the end. The hot sex scenes with Shamus, and Mercy will leave any woman longing for a man like him. I'm glad I purchased and read the book. This is the first book I've read from Ms. Deanna Lee, but it wont be my last. "Well-done, Deanna." :o)
UM is an ok read, it is just not the book I expected when I read the product detail. I fault myself, I should have read the reviews before purchase. I wanted a HOT erotic contemporary romance without a recovering rape victim and the psychobabble that came with it. If you are in the mood for a story about a woman overcoming the aftermath of rape and the process she goes through to do so you will love this book. Shamus reminded me of a Zen type character that oozed sex appeal and is the remedy all women need that have something that ails them. The sex was steamy and they did not get it on until half way through the book but when they did it was well worth the wait. I do wish the author had revealed more about Shamus and his thoughts. The story is mainly told from Mercy's POV which at times seemed a bit contrived, I have read many similar books with this theme and found UM to be a quick read with no surprises.
Slight spoilers ahead...
Mercy was raped at her old job and she has slowly been putting her life together. She has a new job, new friends and soon a new position which will give her new responsibilities and challenges. Life is good and our girl knows it and is relishing it.
She draws a new artist to her gallery one she knows will make the gallery a lot of money. And as a bonus this handsome downright beautiful man wants to learn everything about her both inside and out and what he finds inside her astounds the both of them. This is a true partnership and what I wouldn't give to find a man like him.
Of course there are hardships but not the usual romance book plots of misunderstandings and what not. But she handles her struggles with grace and threw Mercy we see what a real woman's power really is and where it comes from.
I wish the book was longer I loved these two people and I wanted to read more about them.
