MERCY BOUND is an enjoyable read but I would have liked a little more attention to detail. ~ Under the Covers
MERCY BOUND is a sci-fi short story that was originally written for the Something Wicked Comes This Way anthology and is now being released as a single title. It is about bounty hunter named Mercy and her two best friends, Dray and Conrad. They are brothers and Alanten warriors, but Mercy has always loved Dray. When Dray is seriously injured and takes medication that supposedly pushes him into his mating heat, Dray is gravely concerned for his well-being. The mating heat for their kind requires time and preparation. But because of his injury, Dray has no time before his body needs relief. This is where Mercy steps in, not just as a best friend, but now as a potential lover. The stakes are high, but Mercy isn’t willing to just let the man she loves suffer.
Conrad, Dray’s brother is quite involved in this story. He tries to warn Mercy off Dray and I liked their interaction. However, towards the end, I thought there was too much of Conrad when the focus should have been on Dray and Mercy more.
There’s a good amount of world building in the first chapter of the book. I was very impressed by that, but again, the ending seemed too rush and none of the world was mentioned after that. So overall, MERCY BOUND is an enjoyable read but I would have liked a little more attention to detail.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
