After Dark Review of Tender Mercies by Kitty Thomas

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Synopsis: ""Grace. That word that finally meant something again. Mercy. Favor. Good will."

Fed up with play kink, Grace Warner moves to an island that embraces erotic slavery to be with a man she met online. Within hours of her arrival, everything is ripped from her, and she quickly learns play is preferable to the realities of actual enslavement.Asher Collins has spent the past year mourning and blaming himself for the death of his slave, Darcy. When Grace catches his eye at a showing, obviously abused, he becomes obsessed with buying her and finding a way to atone for his own past sins.

DISCLAIMER: This is a work of fiction, and the author does not endorse or condone any behavior done to another human being without their consent. This work contains subject matter which is not appropriate for minors including depictions of abuse, slavery, dubious consent, and anal play."

My Review: This book was so much more than I was expecting and I loved that aspect! I don't know exactly what I was expecting but it wasn't all the emotion and trust building. I loved the characters and where the battles they each individually fought to get to be who they are. This was a quick one day read but it was so taxing, I felt exhausted by the end of the book. Kitty Thomas does such a great job of bringing you into the scene she sets and making you feel the emotions, whether they were Asher's or Grace's or even at times William's. I will definitely say this is not the book for everyone, read the synopsis and disclaimer carefully before reading it.
My Rating: I really enjoyed this book and it totally captured my attention. I had planned on just reading half and then finishing another book but I couldn't stop reading. I love the characters she created, and while there wasn't much of a backstory you didn't really need it.  I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
