Book 2 in the series Trek Mi Q'an

Giselle McKenzie trembled inexplicably as the sound of a low growl reverberated throughout the threads of her consciousness. She knew it couldn't have emitted from her date, the man sitting across from her in the quaint restaurant. Yet every time he placed his hand over hers, she heard that eerie, primitive growl.

NO MERCY was nothing like the first book in the series, The Mistress' New Clothes. This book seemed emotionless to me in a way. The hero and heroine were "meh", didn't care much for them and the whole book seemed okay and boring. I liked the first half of the book, but the second half was harder to get through.

Rem is even more dominant than the hero in the first book, Zor. And he seemed to be a little too cruel to Giselle. In a way sometimes he could be sweet and hurt which I loved those scenes

# 2 in the series
Rem and Giselle are main but of course we run into previous characters.

Rem after the Jera facade is slowly going mad and without finding his true Sacred Mate he will devolve into a basier animal instincts. Bascially a killing monster and the most feared fate of Tystonians who don't find Sacred Mates or lose them.

Giselle is from present Earth day Australia on a date hoping to lose her virginity when of course Rem finds and claims her throwing her into a whole new world..literally

Recommends it for: fans of Jaid Black or Ellora' Caves books that like the kidnap barbarian scenario set in the future
Recommended to shartyrant by: various book nuts who like romance with erotica
This book has explicit sex scenes. So no under 18 teens or kids reading it! Hell, I wouldn't recommend it to adults either.

It's sad when you see a series that has potential to be so much more. This futuristic sci-fi romance erotica would've been interesting if there was more world building and less relying on everything relating to sex. Boring, repetitive sex at that. I find it hard to believe that a woman can have a man have sex with her for days with no break and NOT be sore. Especially while
Review for No Mercy No Mercy by Jaid Black is the second book in the Trek Mi Q’an series. This book features Rem the youngest brother who was bound to a woman who was not for him, unfortunately the years he spent in the loveless marriage and seeking out his true sacred mate have left him scared and on his way to becoming more beast than man. In a last ditch effort Rem travels on to Earth and finds his scared mate Giselle. Giselle is not the typical woman she is a thirty-five year old spinster wh ...more
This second book in this series did not have quite the same "wow"effect as the first. Still, it was entertaining enough to earn a solid 3.5 stars. It was just a little too over-the-top in many aspects. For instance, the hero was just too one-track minded and obsessed with the act of "rutting" once he found his mate that it seemed every other page had him "impaling" and "thrusting." No, seriously, when he makes a harness to carry her like a mother would a papoose, except that she is carried conve ...more
Da mir „Burning up Flint“ von Laurann Dohner gut gefallen hat, wollte ich gleich im Sci Fi Erotik Genre weiter lesen. Bei diesem Buch wollte ich eigentlich Band 1 kaufen, aber war nicht bereit den vollen Preis zu zahlen. Diesen zweiten Teil gab es für wenig Geld gebraucht und deshalb fange ich also mitten in der Reihe an.
Das ganze ist mit dem oben genannten Buch kaum vergleichbar. Der Sci Fi Anteil ist völlig anders. Man trifft hier auf verschiedene Planten und deren Bewohner. Bevor

This wasn't my favorite, but it was still worth reading because it is part of the excellent Trek series.

It was a fun escape. Rem was starting to devolve (a type of insanity) because he had been without his mate for so long. He found his mate Giselle who was a 36 year old virgin in Australia. The cure for his devolvement was to have as much sex as possible with Giselle for several years. It was fun seeing her go from one extreme to the other. The author came up with a few more creative ways of ha

I have to say this is my least favorite of the entire Trek series. I'm willing to read about of far out, unconventional practices but the women are treated quite horribly in this book. It's really degrading and I don't care for it. The woman at the center of the book is practically naked most of the time. She has to have sex in public because well that's just how things are done on this planet. She has very few rights of her own. Also, what's with Jaid Black's heroes? They are nearly always over ...more
Stars: 4

Overall: I feel a little jipped with their story. Where was the talking between them, all i got was a lot of pouch fucking. lol Ok, so the book started out pretty good, especially the flying fork incident. The growling seemed to be a big turn on for me at least. But than once we steals her away, i feel like he takes everything from her including her voice to speak her own opinions. I get that it's the way of things on this planet. How would these warriors feel if they had to be uprooted
We learn in the first book about the brother Rem and his having been tricked into marrying a woman who wasnt really his mate and who was an evil bitch. Now that she is dead and he can find his true mate he is on the hunt, but after 17 years of looking he is starting to devolve as their species does. They start to become some sort of creature that resorts to their animalistic type nature. Rem finally finds his mate but is still struggling to keep his grasp on things when their ship home crashes o ...more

RereadAs good as I remember. I should do a re-read of the whole series.

Previous review 06/10/11 Giselle is looking for love in all the wrong places - like an Italian restaurant with a guy who has spaghetti sauce and noodles all over his face. She's 36 and doesn't want to be a virgin anymore so she's planning on wasting her hymen on this guy. Rem is looking for his Sacred Mate and finds Giselle during this date. He makes sure there's no hanky panky and then takes her home to his planet, but they
Didn't quite enjoy it as much as the first book,
Giselle is kidnapped by her devolving mate, this is someone who after hundreds of years will devolve into a slathering mindless mad creature after not being able to secure a mate. Rem is more dominant then his older brother Zor and very close to the edge. After crashing they have to make their way across land, through villages that show some archaic customs to their women and Giselle has to suck it up else they will never get home.
It's not all doom

Just gets crazier and crazier and freakier and kinkier.

The smut is .. Very...smutty. Woop woop. Lol. But at times just too open and voyeuristic for me when it comes to the family aspect like ... Your children being involved. No thank you.

It's like a train wreck. I wanna stop but I just can't ... I need to see how freaky this shit gets lmao.
It was kind of odd.
It was part, kind of heavy science
fiction story and part erotic tale.
In way it had something to satisfy both.
I'm just not sure how well they married.
The tone was odd, even strained even.
I just couldn't get that into it.
As Ive liked everything else Ive read from the
author, I and guessing that this is an early

Yah!!! I want a papoose :)

Another great installment to this series. I am enjoying rereading the first three books and cannot wait to move on in the series. The story of Giselle and Rem is a good one and hot!! I am glad that Rem found his mate but can't wait for Kil!
It was cute and i even laughed a little. It was everything i expected to get from a midnight read. Short, fun and to the point.

*** UPDATE ***
After going back to read the first book, i have a better understanding into the grief and loneliness from Rem! Everything just makes so much sense.

Wow I can't get enough of this series, Rem was kind off scary without his neeka but she made that beast go away...I loved the way dhe was so ready fir everything but this great big hunky warrior
Aside from the atrocities the female in other planets faced, like being forced to be naked and collared, sold to an auction, forced to serviced males for your everyday needs; the one thing I can comment on this story is that Jaid Black forced many characters to be part of one story, that I imagine having a meanwhile batman seal every time they head hop.

I really don't care about Rem into making him a story, and the head-hopping between other characters (Kara, Jana, etc.) is making my head spin. H
This story had potential but it just fell really short. After all the world/relationship building that came from the 1st one I expected more. I felt short changed on the story. You wanted so much for him and I just feel like his story was not developed enough and that the remedy for his "condition" was just so silly. Overall a pretty good series but this book left me wanting much more.
Another entertaining and humourous story by this author. With the majority of world building presented in the first book of this series, No Mercy was primarily about the developing relationship between Rem and Giselle. The adventures of these two very likable characters, as they make their way back home through the galaxy, kept me turning the pages to see what else was awaiting them. Some of the characters introduced in the previous books also made brief appearances. Just enough information was ...more

I'm glad Rem got his own story. I liked Giselle, she is very funny and I still like the humorous aspects to this series.
For all the books of the series that I have been read, I’m not really sure whether I like this one or not. The story is too crude for me (especially with a detailed description of how the aliens treated women in the 6th dimension and its quite disturbing). The hero is not a loveable one, he is a little bit mental due to loneliness, but finally maintains to keep his sanity with a lot of sex with his earthling mate. While other heroes in the series at least showed a bit of gentleness, in this book ...more
Lady Raven RAVE!
I liked this story. I don't think it was so bad because I'm seeing the low ratings. Different strokes for different folks, and I respect that. As for the story, I like the way Giselle and Rem met. The restaurant scene was interesting. However, I also felt that it took too long for them to meet the family because in the other 2 books prior to this, it kind of felt like a family affair with everyone interacting together and getting to know each other, It also could be that the last two was the bui ...more
This was a good sequel to a great series. I liked how they continued the time line but i feel kinda left out of it too.
Without going into the story, of which there is very little, I am agreeing with some of the other negative reviews.

There was a possibility for having a story, however I think the writer was creating something for some other reading group? Not really sure what type they are, but they are not a group I am interested in joining.

This is supposed to be erotica, but even that is not well written.

I could easily follow this story even tho it was the first in the series for me. I will not read the rest
I did a reread of this book and decided that I was harsh in my original review. Previously I didn't find much of the Rem I had first seen in the Empress' New Clothes and since I really liked that Rem, I was miffed. With the reread, I realized that Rem had devolved to a dangerous point and that throughout the book we are seeing evolve back to the man that had existed in the first book (and a man in a better place than he was in the first book).

Gis is a good character but like almost all the women

Este libro no me gusto tanto, espero que en el próximo mejore..
Okay, my first question is "what in the world did I just read?" Dare I say different? Maybe strange or better yet, what the heck was it (the book) talking about?

Now I'm not a science fiction person so I'm not sure what possessed me to purchase this book. However, I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed the story once I got into it. Some of the items were above my head and out of my reach of comprehension (sci-fi stuff) but that hasn’t stopped me form purchasing and reading more in the series before I c
