It s books like Have Mercy that make me sad people don t read erotic romance Shelley Ann Clark may be a first time author but this book doesn t read like a first effort It s super hot it s tightly written and Clark conveys truth about humanity and feminism that will stick with me for a long time to comeEmme is a star on the rise She reminds me a little of Vanessa Carlton Adele or Lana Del Rey She has a sexy sultry bluesy sound that seems perfect for this moment in music On stage she s magnetic But she is not the same person off stage as she is on stage Early in her career she was a back up singer for a popular band that subseuently broke up And as legend had it it was her fault She has so much potential and the will to grasp it but fear of how others will see her if she really takes the reins of her career and her desires paralyzes herTom has barely had a life at all His entire existence has been spent caring for others particularly his alcoholic sister He has always had to be the strong one the responsible one He inherited his father s bar and his father s house when it was never his ambition to obtain either His true love is music and he s a phenomenal bass player So when Emme approaches him to tour with her up and coming band he desperately wants to say yes but doesn t feel he can Even when he commits it isn t all the wayWhen they go out on tour together their mutual attraction has them taking tentative steps toward each other pretty early on but both have issues outside the relationship holding them back When they eventually do let their sexual relationship develop the way it plays out may not work for every reader particularly if the woman taking the lead in a mild BDSM scene is new to them But there s a reason why this is important and it s not just to hit readers kink buttons That said those with that particular kink button will find this story very satisfying indeedAt first Emme allows herself to be painted as a victim even in her own mind of her mother s disapproval of her suspicious neighbors of her bandmates paranoia of the lead singer of the band she broke up and of the music industry gatekeepers who can t let her just be an artist They want to label her a chunky homewrecker who uses her feminine wiles to distract from her lack of talent It takes almost the entire duration of the book for Emme to realize that this is all not to put too fine a point on it bullshit More importantly it s bullshit that she can turn back on itself and use to her benefitAnd it s her sexual relationship with Tom along with his unflagging confidence and pride in her that teaches her about how to take the power she wields as an artist on stage and as a capable professional offstage and extend that into her interpersonal relationships It takes a special kind of man to provide that support For Tom to acknowledge that Emme has a deep well of strength of her own and to accept that and celebrate it and lean on it shows Have Mercy s true colors It s not just about the femdom sex or the sultry blues club atmospherics It s about revolutionizing the way we women see ourselves powerful talented and in control of our own lives and destinies For a recipe based on Have Mercy via Cooking Up Romance

Have Mercy

In Shelley Ann Clark’s seductive debut novel two damaged souls discover that when they’re together their bodies hit all the right notes Rock diva Emme Hayes already broke up one band after sleeping with the lead singer and she swears she won’t let sex screw things up again The problem is her new bass player a lean muscular tattooed mystery man who makes her want to dema. This debut erotic novel from Shelley Ann Clark treats us to the story of Tom and Emme Tom is a musician at heart but his dreams have been thwarted by his ongoing care of his alcoholic sister and his job running his late father s bar One night he meets Emme a sultry singer who takes his breath away when she plays with her band at his establishment Emme extends an invitation to Tom to tour with her band after hearing him play which he gladly accepts knowing it will be short but sweet But once he is under Emme s thumb it s the last place he wants to leaveI think I can safely say that this is one of the sexiest books I have ever read That might be because the majority of romanceerotica books feature an alpha dominant male and in this book Emme has the dominant role still utterly feminine and with her own internal struggles with her sexual nature as she leads Tom in what she wants in the bedroom Tom is than willing to oblige as his own sexual nature is inherently submissive He longs to have one area of life where he doesn t have to be in control and Emme senses this and uses the knowledge to both of their advantages Told in dual points of view the love scenes in particular are poignant emotional and raw yet captivating Emme s character is wonderful a take charge woman on the outside yet with the insecurities and hurts on the inside that define her actions As her relationship with Tom grows her inner strength comes to the forefront and she takes a stand for herself and her happinessThis story was well written fast paced and full of sexual tension and heat The ultimate conclusion and happy ending were perfect I can t wait to read from this new author and this book will definitely go on the re read list 5 fabulous starsNote I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for review

review Have Mercy

Nd his absolute attention has her so worked up she can hardly carry a tune Emme promises he’s off limits She just doesn’t know how she’ll be able to confine the heat to her love songs The moment Tom McKinney lays eyes on Emme strutting around the stage of his blues bar all curves eye liner and teased blond hair he knows she’s one of a kind So when she offers him a two. I m not a remotely objective reviewer of this book I read Have Mercy as a manuscript before it was sold to Loveswept I was barely acuainted with Shelley at that time but I knew her well enough to know that I wanted to like this book Turns out I was so blown away by Have Mercy that I immediately wanted to track down every extant copy of my own first book and burn them all in a bonfireFirst off this book is NOT NA That s a marketing error that I wish I could erase because Have Mercy is about full blown adults who know themselves pretty damn well Their problems are adult problems They run businesses and have careers and when they fuck up it s because being an adult doesn t remotely protect you from being stupid The difference is that people depend on you the older you get so your mistakes have even bigger repercussions than when you were youngerThis book is set in dive bars and broken down tour vans populated by musicians and bouncers and two main characters that might not ever be rockstar famous but are still playing the music they love with a passion that bleeds into their lives offstage It s not fancy and it s not always pretty but what it is is completely and utterly realIt s also hella hot Just saying I emailed Shelley shortly after reading her book and told her that it was the most polished debut novel I d ever read I love this book with the fire of a thousand suns people Can t wait to talk about it with you all

    GoodishReading about the effects of self doubt internalised shame and loss of authentic direction through the allowance of the imposition of other people's views onto your perspective was good It was also good to read about the journey to and eventual reclamation of self Both Tom and Emme had to contend with such The femdom was also fine Not great; too much doubt riddled Dommingbut I love relationship non scene

    I love me a book about a dominant heroine and submissive hero so it was a no brainer that I'd love Have Mercy What sets this book apart is that without sacrificing the romance at all it deals head on with the double standards women face every day Several of the secondary characters in the book including a pesky music blogger one of the band mates and the heroine's own mother demonstrate the double standard by condemnin

    This is one of those books that just crawls into your heart and soul I wish I could experience one of Emme's shows in person because it sounded like it was totally up my alley I loved the focus on music and band life and how complicated those dynamics can be as well as how our histories together can change us and not always in the best of ways Emme's conflict felt so real and my heart went out to her At the same time I
