    Last night I was in the mood for a standalone romance who wouldn't take me too long to read and review and this one was perfect for that Tim was swoon worthy and for once here it's the heroine that was in charge Tim wasn't weak or anything because it's obvious he could overpower her but he didn't and damn that's refreshing The se

    GoodishReading about the effects of self doubt internalised shame and loss of authentic direction through the allowance of the imposition of other people's views onto your perspective was good It was also good to read about the journey to and eventual reclamation of self Both Tom and Emme had to contend with such The femdom was also fine Not great; too much doubt riddled Dommingbut I love relationship non sc

Month paid gig to tour with her band Tom can’t say no despite family troubles and the bar’s precarious finances Onstage and off the music they make thrums in his soul but Tom has too much going on to get involved even if he burns to let Emme play his body like a fine tuned instrument Includes a special message from the editor as well as excerpts from other Loveswept titl. It s books like Have Mercy that make me sad people don t read erotic romance Shelley Ann Clark may be a first time author but this book doesn t read like a first effort It s super hot it s tightly written and Clark conveys truth about humanity and feminism that will stick with me for a long time to comeEmme is a star on the rise She reminds me a little of Vanessa Carlton Adele or Lana Del Rey She has a sexy sultry bluesy sound that seems perfect for this moment in music On stage she s magnetic But she is not the same person off stage as she is on stage Early in her career she was a back up singer for a popular band that subseuently broke up And as legend had it it was her fault She has so much potential and the will to grasp it but fear of how others will see her if she really takes the reins of her career and her desires paralyzes herTom has barely had a life at all His entire existence has been spent caring for others particularly his alcoholic sister He has always had to be the strong one the responsible one He inherited his father s bar and his father s house when it was never his ambition to obtain either His true love is music and he s a phenomenal bass player So when Emme approaches him to tour with her up and coming band he desperately wants to say yes but doesn t feel he can Even when he commits it isn t all the wayWhen they go out on tour together their mutual attraction has them taking tentative steps toward each other pretty early on but both have issues outside the relationship holding them back When they eventually do let their sexual relationship develop the way it plays out may not work for every reader particularly if the woman taking the lead in a mild BDSM scene is new to them But there s a reason why this is important and it s not just to hit readers kink buttons That said those with that particular kink button will find this story very satisfying indeedAt first Emme allows herself to be painted as a victim even in her own mind of her mother s disapproval of her suspicious neighbors of her bandmates paranoia of the lead singer of the band she broke up and of the music industry gatekeepers who can t let her just be an artist They want to label her a chunky homewrecker who uses her feminine wiles to distract from her lack of talent It takes almost the entire duration of the book for Emme to realize that this is all not to put too fine a point on it bullshit More importantly it s bullshit that she can turn back on itself and use to her benefitAnd it s her sexual relationship with Tom along with his unflagging confidence and pride in her that teaches her about how to take the power she wields as an artist on stage and as a capable professional offstage and extend that into her interpersonal relationships It takes a special kind of man to provide that support For Tom to acknowledge that Emme has a deep well of strength of her own and to accept that and celebrate it and lean on it shows Have Mercy s true colors It s not just about the femdom sex or the sultry blues club atmospherics It s about revolutionizing the way we women see ourselves powerful talented and in control of our own lives and destinies For a recipe based on Have Mercy via Cooking Up Romance

Have Mercy

In Shelley Ann Clark’s seductive debut novel two damaged souls discover that when they’re together their bodies hit all the right notes Rock diva Emme Hayes already broke up one band after sleeping with the lead singer and she swears she won’t let sex screw things up again The problem is her new bass player a lean muscular tattooed mystery man who makes her want to dema. 3 I m always kneeling at your feet Even when I m standing StarsNothing gives me of a buzz than reading a book by a debut author and knowing that at some point in the future they are going to release something so good that it is going to blow my mind Although Have Mercy didn t 100% work for me there is potential oozing from each and every one of its pages and I am excited to see where this author s imagination will take me as a reader in the futureThere aren t many people who haven t now read a book that is about a DomSub relationship what is different about this one is that the woman takes the dominant roleTom Don t be polite Don t be nice I don t want polite or nice I want you how you are I liked Tom and Emmy together this is the part of the story I wanted of the development of their relationship into one where she takes the lead and he follows This dynamic being turned on its head from what has become the norm intrigued me and I wanted to read of the how they built trust between each other and how that development in turn allowed them to explore their sexual desires Emme was a living flame in his arms onstage and here in his arms and he wanted her to consume him burn him up leave him nothing but ashes and then scatter them to the windUnfortunately I pretty much disliked every other character and their involvement in the book I found all of the drama that was added because of them somewhat detracted from the part of the story that I wanted to read I understand the need for secondary characters but their involvement in Have Mercy somewhat overshadowed what I wanted this book to focus on That being the couple and their blossoming relationship and not all of the drama that their friends families and co workers drag them intoThe melody wound round the instrumentation like smoke rising from a cigarette just as seductive and addictiveAlthough enjoyable for me Have Mercy lost focus on what was important and lacked the development in those areas because of it I really think Shelley Ann Clark has huge potential the ebb and flow of the writing is superb and the descriptions easy to visualise I just wanted of Tom and Emmy together Love real love the kind that heals instead of hurts doesn t feel heavy It makes you feel lighter Instead of pulling you down it lifts you up It lets you be who you really are ARC generously provided via Netgalley in exchange for the above honest review

Nd his absolute attention has her so worked up she can hardly carry a tune Emme promises he’s off limits She just doesn’t know how she’ll be able to confine the heat to her love songs The moment Tom McKinney lays eyes on Emme strutting around the stage of his blues bar all curves eye liner and teased blond hair he knows she’s one of a kind So when she offers him a two. I m not a remotely objective reviewer of this book I read Have Mercy as a manuscript before it was sold to Loveswept I was barely acuainted with Shelley at that time but I knew her well enough to know that I wanted to like this book Turns out I was so blown away by Have Mercy that I immediately wanted to track down every extant copy of my own first book and burn them all in a bonfireFirst off this book is NOT NA That s a marketing error that I wish I could erase because Have Mercy is about full blown adults who know themselves pretty damn well Their problems are adult problems They run businesses and have careers and when they fuck up it s because being an adult doesn t remotely protect you from being stupid The difference is that people depend on you the older you get so your mistakes have even bigger repercussions than when you were youngerThis book is set in dive bars and broken down tour vans populated by musicians and bouncers and two main characters that might not ever be rockstar famous but are still playing the music they love with a passion that bleeds into their lives offstage It s not fancy and it s not always pretty but what it is is completely and utterly realIt s also hella hot Just saying I emailed Shelley shortly after reading her book and told her that it was the most polished debut novel I d ever read I love this book with the fire of a thousand suns people Can t wait to talk about it with you all
