REVIEW: BUY IT
Do you ever watch a movie and just feel a pure adrenaline rush from it? From the moment I picked up Mercy & Mayhem by Lindsay Cross, I was whisked away on a mission with Mack and his team. I couldn’t put it down—and I know you won’t be able to either.
This is the last full-length novel in the Men of Mercy series and it sets up the spin-off series that is coming. The wonderful thing about Mercy & Mayhem is that even if you haven’t read any of the other books in the series, you can be just as swept away as those that have read them all. Each of our leading men from past novels is on this mission with Mack, and I’m willing to bet that if you haven’t read their stories, you will want to go back and do just that.
A story of romantic suspense, Marley + Mack end up in the jungle with Mack’s team after having no choice but to jump out of Marley’s plane. Their chemistry is so hot and the banter between them had me laughing in quite a few spots. Marley is such a strong, dynamic leading lady. I thought the feisty pilot was well-written and definitely gave Mack a run for his money. My favorite line that describes Marley and her personality is from her thoughts on Mack when they first meet: “Marley was beginning to realize Mack always looked angry about something. Maybe that was just a permanent expression for him – resting asshole face.” I absolutely love her humor, even in the face of peril.
I love a good book that moves quickly, but doesn’t spare any details. Between the laughter and the action, I simply couldn’t put it down!
As a side note, for those of you familiar with #bedtimestoryinthekorner, Lindsay wrote about Riser who is on this mission as well. His novella will be the final story in this series and will be here in June!
As of 4.28.17, Mercy & Mayhem is available on Kindle Unlimited.
