New Release & Review!!! Mercy-- Debra Anastasia!!!




Oh. Dear. Jesus. I have never read a book like this. Never. One that has given me SUCH a hangover that I cannot even begin to describe it. This one is, hands down, one of my absolute favorite of the year. Maybe ever. Everything about it is ah-freaking-mazing. Not one word would I change. Nothing.
The only other words that I have read of Debra's were of her humorous nature, so I really had no idea what to expect going into this one. Because, honestly- my mind was engrossed in the hilarity that I knew of her previously. But, she blew me the eff away. I mean, speechless.
Mercy (Nix) and Becca- oh sweet Jaysus- can I get more of these two. Such broken depravity from the one, and the shining sun that is all that is good from the other. Nix is so beautiful, but so similar looking to the man that he abhors, the man that rendered so much unspeakable pain and anguish upon him, that he decided to cover his entire body in an art form that makes him unrecognizable. However, Becca, only having met him as a child, knows him on a bone deep level, once they are finally reunited years later.
I am not going to sugar coat this- this story is flat out ugly at times. When I said that Nix is a man of broken depravity, I didn't lie- he is out for the blood of the man that broke the spirit of his childhood. So, make no mistake- Debra doesn't hold back on that. She lets us know just how far Nix is willing to go, not only to exact his vengeance, but to protect what's his. Her storytelling is beautiful in that respect.
No matter as broken as he is though, his Becca is right by his side through it all. Once she discovers that Nix is the boy she met all those years prior, she never turns back. She is in for life. These two have a bond that cannot be broken. 
I know there isn't enough for me to say that can even begin to tell you how good this book is, so just pick up your own copy and find out. You won't be disappointed. Is is dark? Yes. Is it hot? Heck yes. Is it worth every single penny you'll spend? Oh, mother of god- more than you can imagine. Do it now, people. Just trust me on this one!!
5 beautifully depraved stars!!!

One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble.  He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull.
The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes.
Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late.
With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy.
***
Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs.
Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her.
***
Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started.
Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten.
Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail.
Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was.
His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.














I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. 

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.
