One visit to my father in prison—convicted for a murder he didn’t commit—and I’ve attracted the attention of the last man I’d ever want knowing that I exist.

Gabriel Easton.

Son of an infamous crime boss. Pretentious liar. Merciless womanizer. A scoundrel to the core.

Worse, he has figured out how desperate I am to protect my father from brutality behind bars. He has the power to grant that protection and he has offered it … for a price.


I am to become a prisoner in his playhouse mansion, to live with him until he tires of having me around.

I’ll do anything for my father, including agree to Gabriel’s cruel game. But I won’t comply with his every whim and wish.

Not when he taunts me with that ruthless spark in his cold blue eyes.

Not when he requires that I share his bedroom at night.

Unfortunately for me, I think my loathing for him is what he’s enjoying most.

That’s fine. By the time I’m through with him, he’ll be crying my name.

Nina West is a new author to me. My first book of her was a total win and I’m so glad that I picked up “Sweet Mercy”!!

Mercy’s life changed dramatically when her father is convicted for killing someone who hurt her. However, his life is not safe since another man is targeting him for revenge.

Gabriel is a mob boss’s son trying to cut ties with the underworld. While visiting his father in prison, he sees Mercy and he’s instantly attracted to her. In order to make her his, he offers to protect her father in exchange of Mercy coming to live with him for some time.

Mercy and Gabriel’s relationship is a complicate one. The attraction between them is real and the sexual chemistry is scorching. However, Mercy blocks Gabriel’s advances and tries really hard to keep away from him. After all she can’t just forget who he is and what he does for a living.

The book is a great introduction to the characters and their backstories. I really liked what I saw so far and I’m looking forward to the next book!!!
