Act of Mercy by Mandy M. Roth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Grump and the Geek!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍🌏
Character development: 😠😘🤓😉
The heroine: Mercy Deluca – she is a biomedical engineer for Donavon Dynamics Corporation. She grew up in foster homes and thought she would be helping people but instead found out she was working for cruel men and women who used their position to experiment on others. They barbarically tortured and committed other atrocities in the name of research.
The Hero: Duke Marlow – An alpha werewolf and a Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative, Duke is a grumpy male with a reluctance to accept change. He typed with two fingers and couldn’t for the life of him, figure out the phone system in the office. His boss also keeps extra cell phones in his office for when Duke loses his temper.
The Story: When a woman kept calling the office and finally said she might be in danger before hanging up, Duke was unsure of what to do since he had no clue how calls were routed or how to find the woman that called. Though he felt something about the woman that he couldn’t define.
Mercy knew that the corporation she worked for was doing shady business and she wants to help the men that are being experimented on so much that they eventually died. She does her best to help them without getting caught herself, but is very worried every time she comes and go from her office, just waiting to get pulled aside and killed.
Duke is grumpy, growly and easy to anger. He is so cute in his grumpiness that you can’t help but like him. Mercy is small, geeky and cute in her naivety. They make a great pair and are both so interesting. The book is told in dual points of view via solo narration. The narration is done by Mason Lloyd who does a great job and is easy to listen to. I really liked the story and the romance.
