2.5 Stars · Contemporary

Mercy F*uck by K.S. Adkins

Beware of Spoilers!

Star Ratings:

Heroine (Drew): 28yrs old 3/5

Hero (Axle): 31yrs old – such an asshole 2/5


Plot: 3/5

Grovel: I wish the H grovelled

Cheating: none

HEA: yes

Triggers: in detail description of OM fucking h, H was married during their separation

Average score: 2.5/5

Best Line: H to h: Lust is fleeting, love is you.

Worst Line: H to h: My wife was nothing like you. She was quiet, conservative and safe. A school teacher, third grade, loved kids. I thought safe was smart. It wasn’t, so I cut her loose. You wouldn’t like her. But you know what? When I told her I was done, she fought for me. She said she’d do anything to be what I needed. She wasn’t a fighter but she fought,” he sneers in my face. “You didn’t fight; you didn’t do shit. I offer up everything I am to you and you place another order for cement. All I ever wanted was a shot with you but you ran nine years ago and you haven’t bothered to stop.”


I fucking hated him for saying this to her because HE was the one in the wrong by calling her a Mercy Fuck to begin with.

Personal Review:

I was hoping to get some grovel action but was sadly disappointed as the h forgave him when they meet again…almost instantly and his explanation was not very good either.

Random Ramblings:

  • My heart hurt for Drew in the opening scene
  • Loved the nickname banter
  • I had hoped for a different explanation for the ‘misunderstanding’ because he still called her a “Mercy Fuck”

Overall Feeling:

Drew: “Feelings and romance were for pussies.



Disappointed (again!) at the lack of a well-deserved grovel
