Review & Giveaway : Beg For Mercy (Trilogy #1) by Jami Alden

"He lurks in the shadows, waiting and watching . . . And once he has you, all you can do is. . .


Megan Flynn thought she was falling in love. Cole Williams wasn't just handsome and passionate, he was one of the good guys. Or so she thought, until he arrested her brother - the only family she has left - for a murder she knows he couldn't have possibly committed. Now, with her heart broken and her brother's life hanging in the balance, Megan will risk everything to prove his innocence. Even if that means throwing herself into the path of a sadistic killer with a hauntingly familiar MO.

Seattle Detective Cole Williams had given up on making Megan see reason where her brother is concerned. But when she insinuates herself into the most shockingly brutal case Cole has ever worked, he can't stand idly by. Plunged into a secret world where the city's elite indulge their darkest desires, Cole will do whatever it takes to bring down a madman who has made Megan his most coveted prey."

So I was just telling Bells how much I really loved this book. Jami Alden did a wonderful job in bring in the suspense and oh yes the romance. I couldn't put this down once I got started. 
So Megan Flynn is dating the hot Cole Williams who just so happens to be a Detective. Well, while getting hot and heavy Cole receives a phone call that he needs to go to work and take care of something. It just so happens that something turns Megan's world upside down. Now what they have is on the fence. Can they make it through the storm that is approaching and fast?

Sean happens to be Megan's older brother who she loves unconditionally but with saying that a woman is found murdered in his home and he is being charged for the crime. He is arrested by the sexy Cole and is now on death row fighting for his life. Megan knows her brother is Innocent but no one believes her. Now she is set out on her own in trying to find the real killer.
Ok so 3 years later a woman is murdered and now brings Cole and Megan together once again. Classic! It also just so happens that Sean's Execution is coming up fast and Megan is desperate to find out once and for all who is behind it. But she needs help....insert Cole here. He reluctantly agrees to help her.  And the killer WOW! I would have never thought it would have been that person.... I was totally thinking someone else through out the story as I got more and more involved.

I loved the relationship between Cole and Megan! I mean one minute they are hot and heavy than the next they are cooling off. I really liked that Cole just happened to show his weakness towards her well because it was her and it has been her since they met. *dreamy sigh* It was suspenseful, romantic and such a mystery I didn't want to ever put it down.

It will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting to figure out what the heck is going on. I wish there was more love but hey the suspense was enough that had me on edge and begging for more. Rumor has it that Sean's story is up next and when I say Wow!! I can't wait to see how his story will play out. Adlen did an amazing job, I am just sorry I have to wait so long for the nest installment in this series.  Happy Reading!!
