So "Mercy: A Hitman Romance" by Lindsay Marie Miller was very much swings and roundabouts for me and initially I thought It was totally going to be a three-star rating all the way, then just over halfway through this book something happened to change that.
The author managed to totally blindside me, I mean I really didn't see this coming at all.
The ball was thrown completely out of the park.
And in doing so "Mercy" was pulled from an Ok mediocre read to a

This is my first read from this author so I didn't know what to expect and where the story line would go seeing that it was bk1 of a series. *NOTE: This is a book standalone.*

Over all, it was a good start with a few minor plot holes in the character progression, development and continuity. A romantic thriller that screamed mystery and intrigue. I've always loved dangerous romances so to have an ex-president's daughter and an assassin in the mix grabbed my attention right away.

Mercy: A Hitman Romance by Lindsay Marie Miller is a romantic suspense, with mystery, intrigue, danger, violence, angst, some push me/pull you, sexual tension, great chemistry, romance, and some brutal, shocking and intense scenes. Ms. Miller kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, throwing in several twists and surprises into the mix that added a lot of intensity to the story.

Mercy by Lindsay Marie Miller is an on-the-run adventure romance with a hitman and his captive. I liked the bare bones idea, but it felt a bit overdone and illogical actions kept me from believing their story.

Anna is an ex-president’s daughter, and she’s lived a sheltered life because of it. Her first night out with a friend, however, leaves her at the hands of a group of assassins. But the man sent to kill her can’t quite pull the trigger.

I tend to read darker stories, so I was intrig

Over all I liked the concept of this book. I felt like it was a bit rushed. I felt like she was a bit more childlike than a 19yr old should be. He seemed too emotional for a seasoned hitman. I liked the story and how it ended. I just think it could have been executed a little better. See what I did there?

In this book things aren't exactly as they seem. Anna is taken because being the former President of the United States daughter there is a huge bounty on her head, but the question isn't who has taken her the question is why.

This is an author that is new to me but knowing that she has other works out there has had me reaching for the one-click because when I finished this story I just had to see what else she had to offer.
This had just the right mix of angst and mystery, with enough stream to have me flush on more than one occasion.

The story revolves around Anna James, daughter of the former President and Julian, the mysterious man that she has no idea has been sent to kill her.

“Dying is one thing. Living with yourself and all the things you’ve done is another.”
“I made so many mistakes that night. Mistakes that could have been easily avoided. Decisions that were obviously not the best ones, not the right ones at least. But none of that matters now.”
I wasn’t for sure what to expect going into this novel from Lindsay Marie Miller. I have read a few of her shorter works in the past, mostly in anthologies, but the cover captivated me and the synopsis had me pulled in for t

Mercy: A Hitman Romance by Lindsay Marie Miller is a four-star read. The characters seem to be based off real life people instead of characters that are made up.

While I found the idea of a naïve politician’s daughter somewhat implausible, the premise of the story is intriguing, a former president’s daughter falling in love with the man hired to kill her.

Anna has led a very controlled life being the daughter of a politician. Once she’s away at college, she wants to live a little and have fun, you might call it latent teenage rebellion. When she decides one night to sneak off campus with her best friend, she finds out that there is a bounty on her head an

Mercy is a fast paced romantic read that will have you on the edge of your seat.  One moment you will be cursing Julian and the next will be wanting to be in his arms like Anna.

Firstly I do have to say the cover although good looking to me does not reflect who Anna is. To me, she is 19, protected daughter and a virgin.  Once I consumed myself within the walls of Julian and Anna's world the cover picture faded away thankfully.

Mercy is a standalone however at the end of this I could have read so m

Mercy is an angsty roller coaster in all of the good and groan worthy ways. This one is much like a soap opera, which isn't my usual read. I was hoping for something a little more darker and grittier. When dark subjects are broached they're quickly whisked away into the background.

Anna is the daughter of an ex-president. An ex-president that had to do some pretty shifty things to cover up some personal transgressions which leads to some pretty powerful enemies. Enemies that want revenge even yea

This is my third read by this author and again I absolutely loved it. I don’t know why but I love hitmen stories, especially if the hitman is a strong sexy character so this book intrigued me from the very beginning. The blurb pulled me in straight away and I knew I was going to be in for a good read. I think I might have been a little in love with Julian before I even started reading this story.

Of course Anna can’t help but be a little leary of Julian, is he really trying to keep her safe? Doe

Mercy centers around Anna, the rebelling teenage daughter of an ex-President, and Julian the man who has been paid to kill her. The meet cute that occurred between Julian and Anna, was that of long term lovers, but the secrets that are between them made for a great ride for the reader.

Mercy is about a young girl who just wanted one night of fun. One night that turned into a nightmare. Anna is a grown woman but acts very childish. She acts the way most people I suppose would if they’re taken from all they know. But being on the run is always better than being dead. Something Anna just can’t seem to comprehend. Juliana motive wasn’t what I expected. It all seemed a little clique but the author did really well writing this story. It started

This is the first book by this author and I have to say I enjoyed it. I don't read many romantic suspense books, or at least many of them, so this gave me a nice break from my current reads. This book had all the dynamics you're looking for in these books. There was angst, chemistry, all sorts of tension, and of course the jaw dropping moments you weren't expecting!

So Anna is not your average college student. She is the daughter of a former president and to top it off she's beautiful and smart.
