Review: Beg for Mercy by Toni Andrews


First Line: I’ve never been certain I’m human.

Mercy Hollings has an unusual power of mind manipulation she calls “The Press”.  With the help of her best friend, Sukey, she successfully builds a business as a hypnotherapist.  She helps people overcome their psychological problems, from excessive drinking to nicotine addiction.  Mercy has kept her power a secret from everyone around her and only believes in using her powers for good until a mysterious figure by the name of Dominic threatens to change everything.  When Sukey doesn’t show up for work one day, Mercy finds herself in a fight to save their lives.  Everything she believes in will be sacrificed and her power tested to the ultimate limit, but will she be too late?

It wasn’t too action packed and there was enough plot line to keep the pages moving.  Since it took a different perspective on a supernatural power, it was very interesting.  There is some romance build up and there is graphic sexual content towards the end of the book, so I wouldn’t recommend it to teens, though us “young” adults would probably find it entertaining.  For a romance novel I wish there was more of the graphical sexual content, but I did find all the characters in the book to have enjoyable personalities and, with all the excitement that happens, you can’t wait for the next book in the series.  

Beg for Mercy does just as the title says.  Though it was easy for me to put down when I needed to, I picked it right back up when I got the chance.  My life is pretty busy so having to put the book aside at times wasn’t by choice, trust me. 


For: People who like reading romance novels with little sex in them
