An all-new and addictive dark, why-choose, captive romance from the USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Tracy Lorraine. All my life I’ve been a prisoner. Locked away by men who think they hold all the power. First my father. And now him. The devil himself. Reid Harris. Even my husband can’t save me from the most infamous man in Harrow Creek and his loyal best friend. I’m tangled up in their twisted games. One woman. Three dangerous men. They expect me to cower. To beg and plead for mercy. But Reid’s about to discover that not everyone bends to his will. Because I don’t care who he is or what he does, I will not break. Not for any man. And certainly not for him.

Dear Reader,

Merciless is book one of four in the Harrow Creek Hawks series. It is a dark why-choose romance, meaning our leading lady has several love interests and never has to choose to find her HEA. These three a-hole alphas are certainly no heroes; their morals are questionable at best. If you're looking for a good guy, then you're in the wrong place. Enter at your own discretion.

Plot Summary :

Alana has never had an easy life. After surviving the most horrific past anyone could have, she is clinging to the happy parts of her life when she gets wrapped up into another man's plan. Only to be kidnapped by the infamous, Reid Harris. If there was ever a bogeyman , it was him. And now she is trapped in his basement, trying to negotiate with the devil and also trying to survive.

If only his best friend did not make the negotiations to tempting. JD is the joker of the group. He is the trickster who wouldn't hesitate to use his charm against Alana and before she knows it , she is wrapped up in him. But there is only one person who would search for her , who has ever cared about her and that is her husband. Maverick was the one man whom she cared about too and this was about to get messy because Maverick absolutely hated Reid and JD.

Overall Opinion :

Reid is here! I have been screaming for Reid to have his book and it's been such a long wait lmao! Ever since I met him in Kane's series by this author , I knew I was going to love this man and that is what happened. My obsession has only increased!

JD and Maverick are the beta additions to this story and now I can't wait to know more as that cliffhanger was totally brutal! Alana is the true queen and I absolutely love her attitude. She went through something so brutal , I hope these boys help her heal and so much more and I can't wait to read more of them soon!

Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people out there !
