The delicious cover, the not so detailed blurb and the fact is was also a mafia romance I was all over this book. Sad to say this book was lacking more than it was full filling. It started off strong and promising.
Vasile the hero was a good strong character. You can tell he is naturally a protector. He is also a cold, calculating ruthless man but at the same time he can be gentle. The best part readers are not told this you see results in his actions. I loved his character and the fact that I got to visualize all the hotness from the cover model was delicious.
There is a lack of communication with them as at times she does let her imagination run wild. I was right there thinking the same stuff as her. He is not for many words so a lot of times the heroine and readers are going base off his actions. This will also lead to some intense moments. Loved that I never knew what was coming next with the characters or plot. Did leave for some edge of your seat moments and loved it.
But even though I had some great scenes I really enjoyed I still felt like overall the book was lacking something. I felt there really needed to be more dialog especially between the main couple. The format the author chose for this book was needed based off the plot she used but because of this I was not able to feel them connecting as a couple. The ending did feel rushed. Some of those amazing intense moments really could been emotional for me if just added some more dialog. I needed to really feel what these characters were feeling not only with their actions but some verbal too.
I am always looking for a good Mafia Romance series but sad to say I do not think this will be it. The secondary characters all had their own voices and personalities but really they did not jump off the pages for me to continue.

With the warning I was ready for a sexy, gritty, emotional read. Not what I got. What I got was a badass heroine who was over the top bat shit crazy. And really do not know why she is like that. I have some what of an idea based off a little of her background. That did break my heart and really needed more of it. I had a hard time really connecting with Duchess. I get that she has to be somewhat a badass as she is running a brothel and she will do anything and I mean anything for her girls or anyone she consider her friends. I did enjoy that about her but some stuff she does is over the top crazy and does not really make sense. Loved her irritable, short-tempered attitude that did have me giggling a time or two. But at the same time I needed her take it down a notch. I really needed her to have some kind of meltdown or something. I needed to feel that she is only human.
There was nothing sexy about this book. I had no idea who or what direction the love interest was going. There was no sexual tension. Supposedly everyone in the MC thinks she is one of a kind. She is oblivious to this. Needed layers to her love interest and when they finally get together more than half way through book it was boring. 1st sex scene was ok nothing special. 2nd love scene was fade to back and 3rd love scene was a mix of fade to back then very little action with dirty talk.
Loved the idea of modern day brothel mix with an MC. I think she did a great job combining the two themes. The Brothel or more so the characters in the brothel are the main focus and the MC seemed more of a bonus. Now the Mercy Mc I did like. Loved that they consider the town their family and once you live in town you are part of their family and under their protection. They all had different personalities and enjoyed that. I did enjoyed how they pushed their way into The Dollhouse as it did leave for some fun moments with Duchess trying to deal with them. But for me no one really stood out or connected with them. I really wanted to and I think I would of if I was not always in the heroines head.
I really wanted to feel for all these characters especially since there are some moments that should of been emotional. I just felt a lot of nonsense scenes that went nowhere should of been left out and other more important scenes should of been more fleshed out.
The authors writing style and voice was very similar to Kristen Ashley. I felt like she took a little bit of everything she liked from some of her favorite authors and combine them. I really wanted for her to have her own writing style and voice. I think she has a great and her own imagination and it really could of shine in No Mercy.
The many mispelled words and the words not in the right spot were a distraction. I did have to read sentences over because they made no sense. This was more so the first half of the book. I usually do not notice or get bothered when it is done once or twice.
Love the idea of modern day brothel mix with an MC as it is original and was refreshing. I really could of seen me loving this book and series. The execution was lacking a bit. This book still had some good to it unfortunately the bad did out weigh the good for me. I do not regret reading it because it was a refreshing read that at least I did have few giggle moments that made my day.
