Mercy (Salacious Players’ Club) by Sara Cate

This is the forth book in the Salacious Players’ Club series which can also be read as a standalone.

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.

I loved reading this book. The characters are fantastic and I loved the story.

Beau is becomes a completely different person to when you first meet him in Praise. He grows up and learns more about himself. He realises how his behaviour has been and he fixes it. It’s hard not to love him in this book. He was just a poor broken soul who needed some guidance and Maggie is all to thank for it.

Maggie is brilliant. She is such a strong character and it was fantastic watching her realise who she was meant to be in this book. It makes you want to bow for her. I loved her relationship with Beau and how she handled him and his brat behaviour. They both learnt together and grew into the lifestyle.

This is the first Domme book that I’ve read and I really enjoyed it. Maggie was just what the series needed and it just solidfied her position as one of the clubs owners. The scenes were smoking hot and I loved it. I love how it showed that a man is allowed to submit. There is nothing wrong with it.

Another thing I loved in this book was seeing everyone else happy. We’ve seen epilogue’s to Garrett and Mia years in the future and the same for Drake, Hunter and Isobel, but we didn’t quite get that for Emerson and Charlotte. In this book, we saw Emerson and Charlotte with their happy future which I loved. It was also great seeing Beau’s behaviour change towards them, and then Emerson’s reaction and acceptance back when he found out about Maggie and him. It was always going to be a little weird, but so was his relationship with Charlie. Acceptance goes both ways and at the end of the day, you can’t help who you love.

Overall, this was a fantastic book. The entire series has been brilliant. Each book has been its own story, however I’ve loved the character overlaps. I would definitely recommend this entire series.

My rating: 5/5*
