Beg for Mercy by Toni Andrews

Released: September 1, 2007
Publisher: Mira
Rated: Adult

I've never been certain I'm human Oh, the X-rays and blood tests are normal, and most people have no reason to suspect I'm more than I appear to be. But if I tell you to do something? You do it -- no ifs, ands or buts. I call my power the "press." My name is Mercy Hollings, and if you think that having the power to control people makes my life easy, you're dead wrong. Because when I get angry, everyone around me is at risk -- Sukey, my friend who has frightening taste in men; my clients, who, ironically, come to be for help; my neighbors, who regard me as a loner; and Sam, a man who wants to know my darkest secret. I have hurt people in the past, and I don't want that to happen again. But now a powerful stranger is threatening the new life that I've made for myself. And I'm afraid my anger is taking over.

What I thought:

This was a nice change from other paranormal books. Mercy has a gift, but not everyone around her is different. It was a bit different with the Rocko story, and I liked the storyline of something that happens in real life being involved in this paranormal novel. It was a nice breath of fresh air as I read it.

I liked the characters, for the most part, but I didn't get to see a whole lot of Sam to see if I really like him. I'm hoping to read more about him in the next novel to really make up my mind if I like him or not.

I have a feeling the hunt for Mercy's past will go through a few books and I'm excited to see where it goes.  I'm not sure what to classify this novel as, it has paranormal elements but it isn't set heavily in a paranormal world.

This watch is like a black hole in the sense that you cannot stop gazing at the replica watches uk of the watch. I was on board until the strap and price came around, it is an attractive alternative to the rado replica sale look excepting the extra text. I would have liked to see his name if replica watches had to be there at all in red and surrounding. The uniformity of the gems in respective color and shape is fantastic to behold and I can imagine even the most rolex replica sale admiring it if they were to find one of these watches on their wrist. When discussing the far more elaborate. Which are designed to create a very small space between skin and the bracelet allowing for some flexibility during hot and cold weather. The dial is slightly different, with Rolex choosing a glossy hublot replica finish as opposed to the matte dial on the non gem model. This replica watches sale costs a lot more than a tie, but I see it much the same way.
