Merciless Memories Reviews
College is a time of growth, spreading one’s wings and making mistakes. It is also a time when some go overboard and become the monsters their families always warned them against. For one female student, her life, her strength and her self-confidence was shattered when one out of control monster raped her when at a frat party on campus.Mercy now cowers in the background, unable to live a full life, unable to trust anyone and no one knows, except her best friend who is always there to lend her a shoulder and a helping hand. Three months have passed and it is time to join the human race again, but to do so, Mercy needs to know she will never be a victim, again. That is when she met Camden, the MMA self-defense trainer who seems to read Mercy’s very emotions and fears. He is kind, gentle and keeping his distance so Mercy will not be scared off, but there is something special about Camden and Mercy may find she is ready to trust again, as well as insure that no girl will become a victim again.MERCILESS MEMORIES by Eden Rowan is the first in a series of short tales that view the dark side of life with raw and frank detail. Ms. Rowan has used her talent in a stark way to present a tale that carries a message of hope without the frills and froth of skirting dark realities.

This book was extremely hard to put down once started! I wanted more as I kept reading. Trying to figure out just how or who Camden was, he knew more about Mercy than I would expect. It's a great read!
*I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.*I am always wary of New Adult books. Most of the ones I've tried tend to be less about a story and more about some addictive love. I have experience with this writer, however, and this story sounded quite fascinating. And it was.The subject matter is definitely rather dark, but it's not dealt with in an overly dark way. The main character, Mercy, was date raped several months previous to the beginning of the story and the after effects have been difficult to deal with. The characters in this story were well written and believable. I felt like they could easily be real people. Mercy and her struggles with what happened to her and learning to trust again (particularly men) is completely genuine. I've never had an experience anything like this, but the feelings seem completely rational. There were some things that frustrated me about how she handled the situation, but I'm sure many people would react in just the same manner she did. There is a touch of romance (no, it doesn't go overboard) between Mercy and a new guy Camden who has some special abilities. Their scenes are sweet without being too cheesy or undermining the rest of the story. Camden also starts teaching Mercy how to fight for self defense, which was a nice touch. She's trying to get stronger which is always a good thing. The ending was definitely open since this is the first of a six part series, but it was satisfactory as well. I didn't find myself annoyed that it ended where it did (which sometimes happens when I read cliffhangers). I am definitely looking forward to the next installment. Highly recommend this one.

The drug induced rape, at a frat party shattered Mercy's world! Only her best, and only friend, Gemma knows. It's taken all summer, spent alone and at home, for Mercy to find the courage and strength to venture forth and return to class. She's sworn off men and just wants to start living again. Can she, with the rapist still on campus?She runs into Camden at school. He seems kind but can she trust him? Camden sees how shaken Mercy is and offers to teach her self defense. Of course, he has his own secrets! Refreshing and compelling paranormal introduction! Real life issues with good and devious character portrayals to sink your teeth into, some literally! The first of six episodes and I am so ready for the next!Received book free for honest review
This story about a rape victim who finds love with an MMA trainer may sound a little strange, but the author does a great job of making the characters feel real. The main characters reaction to events for the most part feel genuine, although the pacing of the story does at times feel a little too quick to me. Overall this is an interesting character study; it’s just a shame that it has been split into a series of novellas and isn’t simply one longer novel.
