Publisher's Summary

I don’t want to hurt him—I just want to punish him.

It’s bad enough being the only female owner of the Salacious Players’ Club, but I’m also the only one without a kink, or so I thought.

Imagine my surprise when the kink quiz suggests that I’m not so vanilla after all.

In fact, I’m a lot more like Emerson Grant than I thought.

Just one problem—I have no idea how to be a Domme.

That is, until the app matches me with someone willing to help me learn.

He’s too young for me.

Too stubborn. 

Too good looking. And, oh yeah, my friend’s son.

Beau Grant is a brat. I’d hate that about him if I didn’t love punishing him so much.

Underneath all of that attitude is a man who is misunderstood, selfless, and in need of direction.

But if he wants mercy, he has to earn it.

There are a million reasons why I should stay away, but I’m tired of doing what everyone thinks I should do.

I finally know what I want, and I’m ready to take what’s mine.

AMAZING

I love the 2 narrators, it’s my favorite thing about these book, is getting the male and female perspective. Seeing the respect and love and dominance- the give and take in the characters in all Sara’s books as they figure out themselves and each other makes the sensuality even more precious and more realistic. I love the slightly forbidden/slightly taboo aspects of her stories, it cranks up the heat even higher with the pining. Some of the highest grade smut there is.

A+++

Sara Cate does it again! I love her story lines and her details. I’m happy Maggie found a man for her and Beau found a woman to put him in his place.

Mercy by Sara Cate

Tropes/Themes:
-MF contemporary romance
-Reverse age gap (22H 34h)
-Best friend’s son
-Dom(h) / Sub(H)
-Lots of depictions of and conversations about kink
-Dual POV
-Can technically be read as a standalone but would be best enjoyed in publication order

TWs for toxic masculinity, bigotry

Another solid character-driven installment to this series! I was initially surprised when it was announced that Maggie’s romance would be Emerson’s son Beau, but I was pleasantly surprised with how their relationship played out. There were a lot of conversations about toxic masculinity and self-expression, which I thought were handled well. After not loving Beau in book 1, I’m glad he was able to get a redemption arc. I can almost appreciate a good reverse age gap and the D/s role reversal.

But was this a perfect book? Heck no. There were actually a lot of things I didn’t like about it. I felt Beau and Maggie kept their relationship a secret for way too long (and felt like there was virtually angst/conflict once their secret got out). I think Maggie should have been aged up a couple years though because there were a few times where she talked about herself like she was a senior citizen. Emerson continues to be my least favorite character (hypocritical jerk) and I wish we got more cameos from the rest of the gang.

Despite all of that, this was super bingeable and I had fun being back in the Salacious Club world.

Loved the previous books...

On chapter 16 and I don't know if I can continue with the wishy washy FMC. I am completely invested in Beau's story though, so I hope it'll be enough to carry me through to the end.

So good!

When a bad boy needs to be disciplined there's always a Dom to make sure that happens. This book was really good and I'm glad that they got their happy ending.

I hate to say it but… 👎😒😶

This one can definitely be skipped. It’s just okay. H/h didn’t have the vibe that captured me and kept me engrossed in the story. Not worth the credit imho. Like the author and will continue to support her.. this couple just didn’t do it for me.
Narration was great.

Geez.

It was a struggle getting through the constant inner- monologue of the FMC. She’s 36, come on. Also, the writer’s age timelines of a number of characters from earlier books in the series was off. Once again, I did not like this female narrator. The male was okay.

Brilliant Story & Audio🎧Gripping, Heartfelt & Hot!

Sara Cate blows me away with another amazing “Salacious Players’ Club” novel and I loved everything about it, from her wonderful writing style to the fabulous characters and storylines she created to the perfectly cast narrators who bring it all to life from the pages to your ears. Each book in the series features one of the four owners and this is Maggie’s story and wow, what a story it is. Maggie, the most straight-laced of the group, vanilla all the way but when challenged to take the test on the club’s app to find her preference, the outcome surprised her, even more surprised when there was a match in her area and it turns out that is not the end of surprises for her. Beau Grant has anger issues, especially with his father, and not just because he stole his girlfriend but because he owns a kink club. Though their relationship was strained even before all that and at twenty-two years old, he still had a lot of growing up to do. He has always thought of himself as a vanilla type of guy, but when he answers the questions on his father’s club’s app he finds out otherwise and when it pings that there is a match in his area his curiosity drives him to learn more. Pairing these two together is absolutely brilliant, and it was amazing to watch these two get to know each other, explore their kink together, and navigate a relationship, all while trying to keep it to themselves. Beau continues to battle inner demons and Maggie does not feel good about having a relationship with her friend’s son, and is twelve years younger than her, but the dynamics and chemistry between them are undeniable and too hard to resist. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, heartfelt emotions, steamy romance and kink scenes that are well done. Sara Cate, thank you for another amazing story and an emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, Lucy Rivers and Gideon Frost are wonderfully talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They had a complete understanding of the characters they were portraying, gave each a voice that suited their character’s persona perfectly, sounding believable in every role they played. Lucy Rivers nailed it as Maggie and was a natural in her role as a Dom. Gideon Frost’s Beau was spot on, he grasped every side of his personality. Both were great at performing the roles of all the secondary characters as well. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the character’s emotions, their passion and projected it into their performance and had you feeling every single one. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to, and their narration enhances this an already brilliant story to another level. Thank you for another outstanding listen.
