Book Tour: Beg For Mercy by Shannon Dermott Review

Everyone dreams of that first kiss. Of that magic moment when your lips finally meet those of that special person you’ve waited your whole life for. A little awkward, a little scary, a little hot and every bit amazing. We speculate that the whole world will shake and time will just stop. No one, however, ever imagines that kiss would be lethal.

Sixteen year old Mercy Moore's life got more than just complicated. The kiss that originally could have meant she would finally have a boyfriend, now was the kiss that could have very nearly ended his life. A small detail her mother conveniently never told her will take her life for an abrupt u-turn. Dating, no love, was now completely and utterly impossible.

But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a party with the elite students of her school and her best friend. And of all things, playing a stupid game that could very well mean the death of someone in that small room. If it were not for her best friend, the hottest guys in school, and a small need to fit in, she may have been able to escape the disaster that was to come. Her worst nightmare, her personal curse, her very life, only gets dangerously worse.


When I got to the end of the book and there was a list of other books by the author, I sighed in relief after seeing that there are three more books in this series. 
I loved it! I love Mercy. She is smart and caring and awesome. She is not one of those popular girls that everyone hates but she becomes popular and she is still true to herself. 
There were part where I wanted to stop reading so I could stop laughing and take a breath but I could NOT stop reading it! 
Not one, not two, but THREE very hot guys are involved!! (did i say guys? yes they are male but not necessarily human) Each one calls to a different part of Mercy (I know which one I would choose but it's not up to me). 
I loved that we got the insight to everything Mercy because if I didn't know everything about her, I don't think that I would love her (only because it would seem like she was playing the boys). But she is great! 
I loved this book! It has romance, romance and supernatural, twists and turns! I can NOT wait to read the next one! (To be honest, im surprised I haven't yet).
Did I forget to mention that she is a succubus? Well she is. Can't kiss her boyfriend without draining him, must be hard. I love all the little "adventures" she has. It's interesting to see her find a way out of them.
4.5/5 Stars.
