BOOK REVIEW:

I loooove this book cover so far the best. It tells me alot about Mercedes . Mechanic, has her own business, Native American looking and attractive and her name . If I may be so bold as to say ,  I would have loved this as the first book cover. * ducks any flying pillows headed my way* Just a personal observation, not saying anybody has to agree with me. It just shows me alot about Mercy.

I am thoroughly enjoying this fast paced, well written series. In 'Iron Kissed',  Patricia's writing blew me away with a certain chapter. Very carefully written,  it both shocked and surprised me. This is my favourite book in the series to date.

Zee, was needing Mercy's non human form to assist him with fae business. This helpful act started a chain of events . The fae don't like Mercy knowing their business. Mercy has made enemies with the vampires , she needs to watch her back. Adam takes matters into his own hands, all business like , hooking Mercy's Garage up with state of the art security.

Samuel and his violin concert had me wanting to hear him play. I wondered when reading if the audio book ( must check to see if there is one) would have the concert music on it. I really wanted to hear Samuel play.

As the reader, we get more of an understanding of what the pack and especially Adam who has claimed Mercy as his mate, are going through with Mercy needing to make a decision.

I was very happy with the way Patricia wrote Adam , Samuel and Mercy's situation. She showed the reader that it is a very complicated thing being mated. It involves more than 2 people, it involves the pack and the way the pack handles it and  Mercy's need to not be controlled. All 3 of them had to dig deep and sort out how their friendship was going to work. Something has to give, it can't go on the way it is. Samuel and Mercy have to discover what ground they are on .

Ben was a surprise in 'Iron Kissed', I really like Ben's character. Adam is showing more and more why he is rightfully the Alpha. My heart gets lost totally to Adam's character in 'Iron Kissed' .

New characters come into play. Mercy has her own version of the 'boomerang', quite a puzzling thing.

Patricia is the perfect book seamstress, weaving all these threads together to make such a great series.

FAVE QUOTES:

I must have sounded like a ninny, but it didn't faze Darryl.
"You keep bothering the monsters, Mercy , and someday something's going to eat you."

He paused when he came to my belly. He let the towel drop away and dropped to one knee until his face was on level with my navel. He closed his brilliant eyes and pressed his forehead against the vulnerable softness under my rib cage.

"Some people are like Slinkies.They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs."



"She sees ghosts,” said Samuel, impatient with my whining.
I see dead people,” I deadpanned back. Oddly, it was Uncle Mike who laughed. I hadn’t thought he’d be a moviegoer."
