Beg For Mercy by Shannon Dermott Review & Giveaway

Welcome to Beg For Mercy!! This series Rocks and I will tell you why below.

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 would be lethal.

Sixteen year old Mercy Moore's life got more than just 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.

But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a 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.

This is one of those books.. that is different and unexpected! I loved the concept of the story and Shannon followed through with an amazing ride! The writing is simply but spellbinding as it draws you into the story and keeps you stuck there. Intriguing, twisty, fun and even sexy.

Mercy is a fun and complex character. I would not want to be in her shoes, but once you find out what her deal is you will see why :) I loved her though! Her life is taking a turn for the messy side and it's so so good! and well she has a yummy guy, well ok maybe more than one that gets involved...

Flynn, Paul, and Sebastian... oh what can I say except for HOLY Hottness!! Each has their own strengths and weaknesses and I really love that there is something in each of them that you can connect with/love. Everyone is picking one guy they are all for? well... I'm all Flynn!! I heart him so hard!

This book has an unusual paranormal twist... and I LOVE it, more YA books need to pick up on this :) READ IT and get what it's all about you will NOT be disappointed!!
