Cry Mercy by Toni Andrews

Released: June 1, 2009
Publisher: Mira
Rated: Adult

I just want a normal life...even if I'm not entirely sure I'm human.

My name is Mercy Hollings and I'm a successful hypnotherapist in Balboa, California. The problem is, my good fortune is dependent on a dark secret. I can make people do whatever I want using telepathy, a power I call "the press." And that ability has hurt some people I never wanted to hurt, so I try to keep it under wraps.

I also try to keep people at a distance...at least, I used to. Recently a group of fearless characters broke through my self-imposed walls and became my friends: Sukey, my receptionist-turned-P.I.; Tino, a Chicano gang leader; Hilda, a wealthy society widow; Grant, a retired millionaire--and Sam, my sexy-as-hell ex-boyfriend.

But with friends comes drama. Tino has inadvertently led me into the dark world of gang violence, and Sukey has pushed me into searching for my biological parents, the only people who can finally tell me who--or what--I really am.

What I thought:

I was hoping more on the romance department of this novel, but I was very happy with the story. It was very well written and I had a hard time putting this book down until I got to the end!

I'm excited to read more in this series. The mystery behind Mercy's birth is very engaging. I'll be watching the author's site in anticipation for any news of the next book.

I gave it 4 stars!
