Mercy and Parker have such a hot back and forth romance. Messer Stone does an amazing job with character development and paints vivid images of temptation and prolonged seduction. Mercy is relatable, funny and determined. Her growth in the story is entertaining and I loved her way of rising to the occasion when her back was up against the wall. Parker is hot and his delay in coming to terms with just how much he desires Mercy made him even hotter. Super impressed with this book and cannot wait to read more form the author!
