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.

About Kele Moon

A freckle-faced redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives on pushing the envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is that, in love, there are no rules and true love knows no bounds.

So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it, she’s lost in her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark, handsome, brooding hero who has infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the oven, he’s usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida with their three beautiful children, who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal parts—they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

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!
