Saving Mercy (Fatal Truth #1) by Abbie Roads
Saving Mercy (Fatal Truth) - Abbie Roads

 

syns

 

He's found her at last

Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare

Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he's the one who can save her. He also knows he's beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?

4 ½  ★

I meant to read a book by Abbie Roads for a while now and when the opportunity to review this book came up I jumped at it.

I’m so glad that I did. This book is a whole new level of thriller and romance mixed into one.

Loved the setting, dark, exciting, bite your nails crazy. But also a touch of humor and plenty of steamy time.

This book kept me on the edge on my seat throughout the entire book. It has some wicked good twists and turns and you never know what will happen next.

I loved the complex characters and their growth throughout the book, both from very different worlds each with their own dark past and yet they are connected and share a past.

Loved, loved this crazy thrilling world and characters that Abbie Roads has created.

The only minor hiccup for me was that the first two chapters were a bit confusing but I just seemed to flow into the right setting very quick and loved the rest of the book .

If you are a fan of dark romance and thrillers I highly recommend this book.

I rate it 4 ½  ★

Seven Things about Abbie Roads:

She loves Snicker Parfaits. Gotta start with what’s most important, right?

She writes dark emotional books featuring damaged characters, but always gives her hero and heroine a happy ending… after torturing them for three hundred pages.

By day she’s a mental health counselor known for her blunt, honest style of therapy. At night she burns up the keyboard. Well… Burn might be too strong a word. She at least sits with her hands poised over the keyboard, waiting for inspiration to strike. And when it does—the keyboard might get a little warm.

She can’t stand it when people drive slowly in the passing lane. Just saying. That’s major annoying. Right?

She loves taking pictures of things she thinks are pretty.

She’s represented by Michelle Grajkowski of 3 Seas Literary.

Her first book will be out October 2016 through Sourcebooks.

Great Story and Characters
Saving Mercy (Fatal Truth) - Abbie Roads

Cain could still feel the desperate energy of the dying and almost the echoes of their screams . Cain hated the sight of the blood but here he was standing in another murder house. Mac was also there and he was the senior special agent for the FBI on this case. Mac was Cain’s adopted dad and still acted like even if Cain was thirty and a grown man. Cain hated this but he knew no one else had the history Cain did or could do what Cain could do no one else could give the information Cain could. . Even if he wanted to run he always stayed. Cain’s “ profiles” were more accurate and detailed then a normal profiler could achieve. In most cases his profiles lead the law right to the perpetrator. He was Killer Killian’s Kid- Triple K as the media dubbed him. Cain needed to be around blood and death. He was the spawn of a serial killer and had the predisposition to be a killing machine like his father. One of the ways Cain found to curb the ugly urges was to force himself to be at the murder scenes. The worst part Cain would never say is sometimes he enjoyed himself. The family: parents and daughter had been killed in the house.  The blood sent him back to when he was very much his father’s son back to when blood covered his skin - so wrong yet so soothing at times. Blood was a pleasure and pain to Cain; a gift and a curse. Blood opened a doorway into the minds and bodies of those who found bliss in brutally ending life. Cain became the killer and saw what the killer saw, did what the killer did, and felt what the killer felt. A dull thumping started behind Cain’s eyes that always happened after he saw the images the thumping would end up in a migraine. The look on Max’s face when he asked Cain if he was back reminded Cain of when  Max found him he had been covered in nose mucus, blood and shame. Cain felt he had never been a kid more a monster than anything as far as Cain was concerned . Cain had several scars on his body and they were all put there on his body by his father . But there was a girl and her name was Mercy Ledger who had been age ten when Killian had killed her family had cut her throat also and yet somehow she had survived. Mercy had made a mark on the wall at her home and now that same mark had been on a painting done in blood before he painted over it but Cain had seen it. Mercy had been cut twenty years ago. But Mercy hadn’t made the mark this time she had been locked up in the Center Of Balance And Wellness for the past  few years. Cain had been checking on Mercy for the last twenty years . She had been Killian’s only survivor. The dark days with his father Cain had been forced to work with Killian at the same Center Of Balance And Wellness and had started at the age of five as his father had been the night janitor. While working there Cain had met and got close to a night nurse named Liz and she had been the only person to ever show Cain any kindness at the time. Liz had stayed in Cain’s life and was one of the few people Cain considered a friend and the closest thing he had ever had to a mother. Mercy could now recognize bad intentions every since that night with Killian. Cain went to the  Center to talk to Mercy about the meaning of that symbol and Liz brought mercy out in a wheelchair but Mercy was totally out of it. Liz told Cain he had to take Mercy away from the there before Dr. Payne destroyed her. Cain took mercy to a cabin he rented that no one knew about and he   paid extra for no questions asked. No one knew of this place and could relate it to Cain in any way.

I loved this story as much as you can love this type of story. It was so intense I didn't’ want to put it down and i had no problem with my interest lagging. This had me on the end  of my chair a lot and I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. I was hooked at the very beginning and stayed that way until the last page had been read. The plot was absolutely stupendous and the book was consuming and I didn’t want to put it down. For Mercy and Cain’s life to be so entwined and truly messed up by the same man was mind boggling. I am also glad Cain when realized Max truly loved him as a son with unconditional love and then to have Mercy. This is definitely one of my new favorites. I don’t want to give anymore of the story away so I will simply say I highly recommend you read this book I don’t believe you will regret it if you are into murder mysteries with a lot of violence type books this is absolutely excellent.

Review For: Saving Mercy
Saving Mercy (Fatal Truth) - Abbie Roads

'Saving Mercy' by Abbie Roads is book One in the "Fatal Truth" series. This is the story of Cain and Mercy. This is a bloody, exciting, drama filled book...so its a little more than just a romance story.
Mercy was one of Cain's father victims that actually survived..but barley. After some time she did end up in a mental hospital that one Dr pretty much torture her. Until Nurse Liz gets her out and into Cain's safe handling. Cain was subjected to the murders of his father and now has issue with closeness even those who are trying to show they care like Mac the FBI agent who took him in when he was young. Even Liz has tried to be a mother to him but he can't get close to anyone until Mercy. Cain has been keeping tabs on Mercy but at first didn't want to take her in doe to his issue with emotion. In addition, he has a love/hate with blood and crime scene. But they slowly start to help each other get through their past. But they also have to get through the danger that they are now in.

Excerpt

Lathan laid Honey in his bed. Her body was dead weight and awkward, so he adjusted her arms, her legs, her head as if she were a life-sized ragdoll, until she looked comfortable. He tore off his gloves, pressed his fingers to her neck, and concentrated on finding her pulse. The steady pressure of her heartbeat tapped against his fingertips in a Morse code rhythm all its own. He laid his other hand on her chest, just below her clavicles, to ensure the rise and fall of her breathing. He tried not to notice how close his hand was to her breasts. Failed. The side of his hand rested next to the gentle slope of her breast. If he fanned out his pinkie finger—no. He pulled his hand away. She must’ve just passed out. He went into the bathroom, soaped up half the stack of clean washcloths and washed the lingering scent of decay from her hand. Her skin was rough and red, her fingers knobby and strong, her nails ragged and short. She had the body and clothing of a stripper, but he expected something more faux sexy than torn up fingernails and blistered feet. What kind of job abused her hands and her feet? Nothing seemed to fit. He had questions and not one answer. What was her name? Why didn’t he get SMs from her? Why was he able to touch her? Where the fuck did she get a human eyeball? He stared at her face as if the answers were written in the delicate arch of her brows, or in the gentle curve of her lashes. Or in the small sickle shaped scar at the corner of her mouth that curved upwards giving her the curious appearance of smiling out of one side of her mouth, while the other side frowned. Her eyelids fluttered. Opened. “How are you feeling?” That question was more appropriate than interrogating her on how she came into possession of a human eyeball. He’d wait until she was fully conscious before tripping down that trail. “Cold. So cold.” Goose bumps pimpled over her bare skin. She scooted toward where he sat on the edge of the bed, wrapping herself around his hips, seeking his body’s warmth. He should get the heavy sleeping bag from the closet. He should cover her with it and leave the room. He should, he should, he should. He didn’t. He pulled off his boots, eased into the bed—she latched onto him before he fully reclined. She molded herself to him. His shoulder her pillow, her arm around his middle, one of her legs draped over his thighs, her knee just a few miniscule inches from his groin. Everything vanished, except the vivid sensation of her feminine curves burrowing into him, seeking his safety, his comfort, his warmth. She was cool where he was on fire. She was soft where he couldn’t bend. She was sweet where he felt bitter. She fit into his arms, against his body, and into his soul, like she was designed especially for him. He wanted to believe he could have a happy ending with her, but his reality was a cruel hard place where good things just didn’t happen. Or if they did, they never lasted.

Excerpt

He drove past a gas station, a fast food restaurant, a person walking alongside the road. His foot hit the brake before his brain had a chance to talk him out of it. Mercy. Her hair was slicked to her skull, her clothes—his clothes—were sucked to her body, doing a shitty job of hiding her curves. At least the T-shirt she wore was black, not white. He pulled over to the berm and watched her in the rearview mirror. She stopped walking, stared at the car—knew it was him—but didn’t move. Could he blame her for not wanting to be around him after what he’d said to her? Not really. And yet, he couldn’t leave her alone and walking in the rain with Payne still out there. Not to mention that she didn’t have anyone or anywhere to go. She still hadn’t moved from her spot. He left the car running, opened his door and got out. The rain slapped him—frigid, bordering on icy, soaking his clothes and dripping in his eyes. The pressure of it hitting the wounds in his bicep and shoulder made him wince. But that was all the attention he’d give to the pain. “Get in the car.” The words came out harsher than he’d intended. She crossed her arms in front of her chest, lifted her head, and somehow managed to stare down her nose at him even though she was almost a foot shorter. “No.” She said the word as if it didn’t matter that they were standing in the middle of a downpour. “Get in the goddamned car.” This time the words came out loud and angry sounding. Like that was going to win her over. What was his problem? “Fuck you.” She looked miserable—all wet and shivery and yet feisty and taking none of his crap. He should soften his tone. He should try to be nicer. He should, but his inner asshole seemed attracted to her inner bitch. “Where are you going? No where. You don’t have any money. You don’t have friends.” His voice softened and filled with some emotion he couldn’t name. “You don’t have anyone looking out for you, caring for you, able to help you in a pinch. You got no one.” He sucked in a breath and when he spoke next his voice was soft and pleading. “Except me.” The moment he finished speaking he wanted to retract every goddamned one of those words he’d spoken. “I’m…Shit…” He ran a hand through his soaking hair. “Goddamn it. I’m a dick. Okay?” He softened his tone. “Now will you please get in the car?” Her shoulders straightened, her chin lifted, and she walked forward without looking at him. He expecting her to stomp past the car, but she yanked open the passenger door and got in. Seconds passed where he just stood here, getting even more wet, and staring at the back of her head poking above the headrest. “Now what?” He asked himself. Just what was he going to do with her? Drop her on Dolan? Yes. No. Yes. No. No. No. The last time he tried dropping her on someone she’d almost gotten hurt. If Mac hadn’t been able to keep her safe, he sure as shit wasn’t going to trust Dolan with her. He got back in car. Every inch of him soaked. He brushed his hair back off his face and wiped the water from his eyes. She stared out the passenger window, refusing to look at him. He reached over and touched her shoulder. Underneath his hand, her body tensed, then trembled. Shit. Was he scaring her? He wrenched his hand off her and wanted to use the damned thing to slap himself around a little. Maybe then he’d get it through his stupid brain that she was fucking frightened of him. Too many words flooded his mind and he didn’t know which ones to say. The I’m-sorry ones. The I-won’t-hurt-you ones. The I’m-an-asshole ones. The I-don’t-know-what-to-do ones. She turned to him. Rain slicked her cheeks. Or was that tears? Her beautiful eyes were the color of tropical waters—deep and fathomless. He held up his hands in a show of surrender and she flew across the console at him. He closed his eyes, braced for the blows, but none came. Instead, slender arms wrapped around him, her hair, cold and wet dripped against his chest, but her cheek over his heart was warm—so warm. Maybe he’d had a stroke or something because this felt like she was hugging him. And that couldn’t be. Could it? He opened his eyes and looked down at her. Yep. She was wound tight around the front of him. And suddenly his brain let him feel the total sensation of it. Of being held tight as if he mattered to her. He let his arms fall around her and squeezed, pressing her tighter to him. Damn, this felt good. She felt good. It was oddly comforting to have her clinging on to him so tight. He closed his eyes and memorized the pressure of her arms around him and the way her hands pressed into his back. The subtle ripple of her spine and ribs underneath his fingers, the way her skin felt warm against his when every other part of him was cold. If he’d been given a Stop Time button. This was the moment he would’ve used it. Here, holding her—the gentle lullaby of rain playing in the background—was the only perfect moment of his entire life.
