He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it doesn’t keep him from coming out.

My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn’t know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target.

My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I’m the only monster who can save her.

Maria’s Review

➦I’ve never read anything by Debra Anastasia and I enjoyed this read a lot. Somehow I thought it would be a bit darker, just judging by the cover of it, but I didn’t find it to be too dark. There’s a tortured stalker-ish hero who is heavily tattooed.

➦You are probably wondering which one of those three things I am so happy about. Yeah, the stalker part. Definitely that one.

➦Wait, I should have added killer to that list. 

➦S’all good, people! Fiction. I loved the chemistry between the two main characters and I thought they were really hot together. There were other things going on in the book that were interesting but I appreciated that the main focus was on the couple. 

➦The last thing I’m going to mention is that I got this audiobook when it was first released. There were some boo-boos in it… and I kinda expected the editing to be top notch… because I doubt that getting Zach Webber as a narrator is cheap. Overall, enjoyed this book and would recommend it to those who like dark-ish reads with tortured heroes! Ok, I’m out!

About the Author:

Debra creates pretend people in her head and paints them on the giant, beautiful canvas of your imagination. What an amazing job that is. The stories hit her hard while driving the minivan or shaving her legs, especially when there’s no paper and pen around. In all of the lies she writes she hides her heart, so thank you for letting it play in your mind.

Debra has now published the Seraphim Series, the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series, the Gynazule Series, The Revenger and Booty Camp Dating Service. Her novella, Late Night with Andres is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now, please!) ForAll The Evers is her latest romantic suspense.

You can find her at DebraAnastasia.com and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared…
