Review & Giveaway Mercy by Helenkay Dimon

After she infiltrated his business and betrayed his trust, a disavowed CIA agent must seek sanctuary in the bedroom of a man who will either help her, kill her, or bring her to her knees…

Becca Ford is on her own. Eight months after she headed up a sting operation to take down millionaire club owner Jarrett Holt, the other agents in her special ops team have been eliminated under odd circumstances, and she needs a place to hide.
Jarrett is a man who prefers darkness to light. He deals in the only truly valuable currency—information—and his supper club caters to an exclusive clientele. It was an uncharacteristic moment of weakness when he let a woman into his life. But it’s not luck that the criminal charges disappeared . . . as did the evidence.
When Becca returns to the club seeking his help, Jarrett doesn’t want to hear her story. But he does want her body, and demands that she give it to him. He’ll keep her safe—for now—but it’ll be in his bed and on his terms, until he says they’re done.

Mercy is not like anything I have read lately, it was a breath of fresh air.  It's sexy and overpowering and intense.  Intense really is the best word to describe it in all aspects. The sex? Intense. The plot? Intense? The characters? Intense. See what i'm getting at here. As far as I know there is not  a book that comes before Mercy, though there is plenty that happens between the characters before the start of the book.  I didn't feel like I was missing any pieces to the puzzle, that i shouldn't be to keep the suspense alive.  Had I liked to see the original relationship between Becca and Jarrett? Yes I would have, I think it would have added a little something, but at the same time it may have taken a way a good portion of the mystery that is what makes Mercy so great to begin with. So on that point I'm at a crossroads with myself, and you will have to come up with your own conclusion on that matter.  The characters themselves are phenomenal though, so very layered and complicated and yet they mesh so perfectly together.  Mercy is a must read if you enjoy a sexy suspenseful read.  And for those of you who enjoy a little M/M there's even some of that in there for you as well.
