Beg for Mercy by Shannon Dermott

Beg for Mercy (Cambion, #1)Book Synopsis:  Everyone dreams of that first kiss. Of that magic moment when your lips finally meet those of that special person you’ve waited your whole life for. A little awkward, a little scary, a little hot and every bit amazing. We speculate that the whole world will shake and time will just stop. No one, however, ever imagines that kiss to bring Death himself knocking.

Sixteen year old Mercy Moore's life just got more complicated. The kiss that originally could have meant she would finally have a boyfriend now was the kiss that could have very nearly ended his life. A small detail her  mother conveniently never told her will take her life for an abrupt u-turn. Dating, no love, was now completely and utterly impossible. And the boy well, that boy would never be the same.

But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a senior party with the elite students of her school and her best friend. And of all things, playing a stupid game that could very well mean the death of someone in that small room. If it were not for her best friend, the hottest guys in school, and a small need to fit in, she may have been able to escape the disaster that was to come. Her worst nightmare, her personal curse, her very life, only gets dangerously worse.

My Review:  I loved, loved, LOVED Beg for Mercy!!!! 5 BIG FAT, I CANT WAIT FOR THE SEQUEL - STARS!!

The story was original, the characters were well developed, and there was just enough suspense that it was painful to close my kindle each night. I hear the sequel is due out in March!

I love YA Paranormal and this one was very different from other’s I’ve read – I think that’s why I liked it so much. Mercy is the 16 year old, succubus, main character. Luke is her amazingly understanding boyfriend, Paul the would-be-boyfriend if he had been more aggressive, Flynn the almost-step-brother and Sebastian the full-fledged demon. All had a crush on Mercy, in the end she gets. . . you’ll have to read to find out!

The flow of the book was perfect, so much was going on but Shannon’s writing was very easy to follow.

I can't wait to read book two because I was so captivated by this one. Shannon’s writing style is exceptional and I know I’ll be reading every book she publishes!
