I voluntarily received an ARC of Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads in exchange for an honest review.
First in a chilling new paranormal romantic suspense series from award-winning author Abbie Roads
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?
Holy crap! That is all I could think for several minutes after finishing Saving Mercy. Abbie Roads is a magnificent artist and story teller and she has blown my mind once again. I am constantly amazed at how she manages to combine so much pain and darkness with immense amounts of love to form her books.
Mercy and Cain are both so damaged and have been dealt a hand in life that no one should ever have to deal with and their pasts have intertwined to connect them in unimaginable ways. Seeing them struggle to deal with their tragic childhoods while facing new horrors kept me from putting this book down until I had read every last word.
Saving Mercy left me with the worst book-hangover I've had in a long time. I tried to start another book the next morning, but it just wasn't an Abbie Roads book.

"He was Killer Killion's Kid--Triple K, the media called him. The spawn of a killer with the genetic predisposition to be a murdering machine."
"That look on her face was something he'd never wanted to see. That was why he'd never sought her out. He'd known what was left of his soul couldn't handle it. And he'd been right."
"He wanted to squeeze her tighter to him, to bring her inside him and make her a part of him."
"Cain was always willing to see himself as the bad guy, but never the good guy."
