Giveaway and Review: "Beg for Mercy"

"Beg for Mercy"
 by Jami Alden

Publisher: Forever
Release Date: June 1, 2011

Summary from
Megan Flynn thought she was falling in love. Cole Williams wasn't just handsome and passionate, he was one of the good guys. Or so she thought, until he arrested her brother - the only family she has left - for a murder she knows he couldn't have possibly committed. Now, with her heart broken and her brother's life hanging in the balance, Megan will risk everything to prove his innocence. Even if that means throwing herself into the path of a sadistic killer with a hauntingly familiar MO.

Seattle Detective Cole Williams had given up on making Megan see reason where her brother is concerned. But when she insinuates herself into the most shockingly brutal case Cole has ever worked, he can't stand idly by. Plunged into a secret world where the city's elite indulge their darkest desires, Cole will do whatever it takes to bring down a madman who has made Megan his most coveted prey.

My Mini Review:

This book is not for the faint of heart like me. I actually didn't finish this one because the crime scenes were way too intense. I wouldn't classify it as a romance, but as a thriller. So if you are fans of crime thrillers that don't shy away from the gritty details, you will love this one! I'd recommend this book to readers who are up for a very scary thriller, not those looking for a romance and mystery.

Bottom Line: Way too scary for me!!

I like crime fiction; they scare me too but I find them very intriguing. So I guess I will add it to my TBR.
